YSL Shocking Mascara - Review

Hi Beauty Lovers!
I hope you all had another great bank holiday weekend, I spent mine writing blog posts, writing my dissertation and panicking about my lack of holiday clothing for my impending holiday, so just your average bank holiday weekend.
Todays post as you can guess from the title, is a review of the much raved about YSL 'Shocking' mascara. I'd heard so many amazing things about this product that I decided to take the plunge and give it a whirl myself, something which I am now regretting...
Packaging & Product 
Can we just have a minute to appreciate this gorgeous mascara...? Who doesn't love gold plated mascara?! Okay maybe it's not real gold, but still its pretty! The main thing I love about this packaging, no matter how you twist the mascara wand on the 'YSL' always lines up, and I mean always.
As I've mentioned in previous mascara reviews, for me it's all about the wand, and boy do I love this wand. I've recently fallen for comb style wands, but my first love will always be the fat wand.

Sadly for me that where the positives end, I find this mascara way too unpredictable for my liking. I can use this one day and BOOM perfectly long lashes, the next day I have thee clumped together lashes. The only way I can get luscious lashes is if I scrap off the ridiculous amount of excess that accumulates on the wand, which wastes so much product.
Shockingly I now only use this mascara to lengthen my bottom lashes.
I was lucky enough to get this mascara for around £18, duty free price, sadly I wont be repurchasing this mascara again.
I think I'll stick to the top dog of mascaras from now on...Clinique
Let me know what you thought of this mascara, was you as shocked by it as me?
