Life is full of complementary duos, those pairings that are made for each other: Peanut butter and jelly, macaroni and cheese, Batman and Robin. However, there’s something to be said about unlikely duos, two components that you normally wouldn’t associate together but, once you do, seem to complete each other. They offer a pleasant surprise and shake up the norm. So you can imagine our unexpected joy when our pals at YSL sent us their latest launch: The YSL Shock Collection. Consisting of the Black Opium Floral Shock fragrance and the Shock Volumizing Mascara, the line delivers two classic beauty essentials that are great on their own, but pure magic together.
We all like to smell nice. But YSL Black Opium Floral Shock takes “nice” to new delectable heights. In fact, this fragrance literally makes you wake up and smell the coffee. Yep, infused with notes of coffee and vanilla combined with some gardenia and orange blossom, this is a total boost to the senses. And, since scents have been scientifically proven to be a major source of attraction, equipping yourself with some powerful perfume is a good move to make.
Once your fragrance game has been upgraded, it’s time to “shock” things up with another beauty essential: Mascara. A strong lash game is a non-negotiable, and YSL clearly understands this with the Shock Volumizing Mascara. The new formula delivers serious volume with just one stroke of the unique, hourglass-shaped wand. Highly pigmented, your lashes will be completely bathed in color and length. Oh, and it won’t smudge or fade, so you can keep the party going as long as you want. Shocking, right?
