My favorite mascara has got to be the YSL mascara!
They have 2 types of mascara, one is the YSL Volume Effet Faux Cils and the other is YSL Singulier Exaggerated.
YSL mascaras have a strong floral scent to it which I love it very much! Some might find this abit irritating though.

YSL Singulier Exaggerated Mascara
Just by looking at the packaging, it sure already looks atas enough to score points from me! It’s packaged in solid golden tube. A click sound is produced when you closed it, so you will always know when it is closed tightly.
YSL Faux Cils is more for volumnizing while Singulier is is more for lengthening, curling and volumnizing.
If there’s any difference between the two, I would say it’s the wand:
YSL Volume Effet Faux Cils
The wand bristles are good for volumnizing. Apply the mascara in zig zag motion and you get volume instantly in just one coat!
YSL Singulier Exaggerated
The bristles are very good for lengthening! It also curls up well! Apply in zig zag motion at the roots of the lashes for volume, twirl as you apply in upwards motion for lengthening and lastly hold the mascara wand on the lashes for few seconds to curl the lashes!

This picture is taken in a lousy web cam in my laptop approximately a year and a half ago, so just bear with the quality.

As you can see, it is more sparse looking than the faux cils one but it certainly does lengthen well! I like the overall look for both mascaras as they give me lashes that looks like falsies in just 2 coats!
They are not waterproof and tend to smudge after a long day. But nothing can’t be solved by applying powdered stuffs (foundation, loose powder) underneath the eyes! Removal is also very easy, usually able to remove when place eyes under running water.
The life span for both mascaras are unfortunately very short in Singapore’s weather. After 3 months they starts to clump. However it’s is fine though as mascaras have to be thrown away (by right) after 3 months as bacteria will start to breed.
In Singapore unfortunately, you can only get the mascaras in DFS Galleria. They used to carry them in all other YSL counters in Singapore but recently they removed the cosmetic range and therefore can only be found in DFS.
