I’m always searching for a good and volumizing mascara, and I want to take you along my mascara journey today. These days, I’ve been using the YBPN Is It Me You Are Looking For Extraordinary Volume Mascara. I received this mascara as PR gift during the Erborian x YBPN Event in Cologne, which I attended some time ago.
First of all, YBPN is no pure make-up brand, originally it stands for “Your Beauty Professional Network” and is an expert network of 1200 perfume stores in Germany. Moreover, the network allows you to get useful information about the participating stores, spreads useful tips and knowledge about beauty products, and now they are also launching accessible and affordable makeup products like the YBPN Is It Me You Are Looking For Extraordinary Volume Mascara.
I received the mascara in a beautiful YBPN make-up Pouch saying “Mein Schönstes Ich”, which means “my most beautiful me”, and also represents the way that this network wants to connect and communicate with their customers.
Also, the cardboard packaging reflects the signature colors of YBPN, using black, white and pink. “Is It Me You Are Looking For” is an original and catchy name for a mascara, too, and makes it stand out. Since it is a volumizing mascara it is supposed to give more volume to the eyelashes, but also make them appear longer.
The mascara tube itself is neat and simply designed, showing the name of the mascara in silver-colored lettering. It contains 15ml of black mascara.
The YBPN Is It Me You Are Looking For Extraordinary Volume Mascara comes with a rubber wand with a pointed end for reaching smaller lashes, too. The formula is smudge-proof and can be applied in several layers to intensify the effect.
Here are the ingredients of the mascara:
Aqua (Water), Glyceryl Stearate, Copernicia Cerifera Cera (Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax), Acrylates Copolymer, Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, Vp/Hexadecene Copolymer, C12-16 Alcohols, Cera Microcristallina (Microcrystalline Wax), Cetearyl Alcohol, Glycerin, Polyvinyl Alcohol, Benzyl Alcohol, Ceteth-10 Phosphate, Dicetyl Phosphate, Sodium Dehydroacetate, Lecithin, Phenoxyethanol, Potassium Sorbate, Palmitic Acid, Dehydroacetic Acid, Sodium Citrate, Sodium Hydroxide, Citric Acid, Tocopherol, Ascorbyl Palmitate, BHT, CI 77499 (Iron Oxides)
Above, you can see me without any mascara on the left and with one layer of the YBPN Is It Me You Are Looking For Extraordinary Volume Mascara on the right. I think you can clearly see the difference. It makes the lashes appear thicker and denser and visibly makes them longer. Also, the eyelashes show a nice curl that lasts all day while I’m wearing makeup. So far, I’m happy with this mascara, since it brings out the eyelashes very nicely. It also doesn’t have a formula that feels clumpy or gooey on the lashes but applies smoothly. what do you think?
Have you tried the new products from YBPN, and did you know about this network of beauty experts?
