Monique T: The ashy black is a perfect color for my dark blue eyes. It really brings them out. And the length and volume I get with this mascara has not been matched by another brand - and I have tried everything - from drugstore to high end options. It also is gentle on my eyes - which tend to be a bit sensitive with other mascaras. Mar 20, 2015

Half way through using the first tube the mascara started to dry, formed small lumps on my eyelashes and even crumbled towards the end of a hectic day so that I saw the dry black particles on my lower eyelids. Mar 2, 2013

Jane H: The Shocking Mascara has a full volume effect. If too much mascara gets on the brush wand in application, I use a brow/lash brush to take it off. It has a more dramatic effect than the Mascara Singulier, but then it just depends on what type of look you are up for at the moment. Mar 26, 2012

Mrs. Jon H asked: I am in search of green mascara that YSL had, but discontinued (SINGULIER). Is the JADE BLACK as green as it looks on YSL's website?
(I am considering the "Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils Shocking" in No6 - Jade Black).
Please kindly advise.

A shopper asked: how we choose the mascara ? Oct 17, 2012
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Elizabeth K: I'm not sure what you are specifically asking. You choose the mascara that best suited for you by reading first the manufacturer's description of the product, what it is supposed to do, and then if you have the opportunity to try it on at the cosmetic counter in your local department store, then try it and see if you like it. The YSL Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils Shocking provides maximum volume as well as elongates and separates your lashes. In my opinion it makes your lashes look amazing. Oct 17, 2012
Reply to Elizabeth Good answer? Yes (2) No (0)
Cynthia B: Personally, as a blonde, I prefer colored mascara during the summer and holidays. Effet Faux Cils Shocking comes in colors, but nothing too obvious. Also, it never smudges, runs or breaks lashes by too much wax (or whatever other companies put in there).

Shocking is easily removed with Top Secrets Eye Makeup Remover.

Gaye M: YSL contacted me to answer this question, although I am a customer too. I don’t know whether they still make #9 in Shocking, but I use #5 in the regular Volume Faux Cils to bring out the green in my eyes. (copy and paste into your browser.)

If you prefer the Shocking formula, try #7, Casis. Red is the opposite of green on the color wheel, so a red-brown, red-violet, or burgundy will contrast with and make your eyes appear greener.

I received this mascara free to try from influenster ! Loved the ending result ! The reason I Am giving a 3 star is because if began to flake on my face after application

Useful NOT useful 20 people find this review useful. Problem with this review

I think I've tried every mascara out there and this is my favorite, by far. I like the waterproof for special events, but the shocking is what I use for daily wear, because it's easier to remove. It produces a dramatic effect and doesn't flake.

Useful NOT useful 115 people find this review useful. Problem with this review

This product hands down is the best mascara I have ever used. I am always searching for the best mascara that will give me the falsie look and YSL has hit it spot on. I have used many other types of mascaras that claim to give you the falsie look but none of them really go above and beyond. This product although kind of expensive is totally worth it. I have been using it with all my make up and it never lets me down no matter what kind of other applications I put. I not only use this mascara as an special night out, it's my go to everyday. I can't thank both YSl for creating this and influenster for letting me test it out. All in all I would absolutely recommend this mascara for anyone who is looking for the total look of falsie without having to go through the trouble of actually putting false lashes on. -I received this product complimentary of influenster and my opinions are all my own.
