I live this mascara! No clumps, no flaking. Perfect coverage in 2 coats with beautiful full looking lashes worth a formula that lasts all day and into the night. I'm a mascara snob and have been looking for the holy hail product for some time now, going so far as to using multiple brands/formulas to try to get the perfect blend. With this YSL mascara, now more mixing! One product, perfect coverage, no spider lashes! I'm in love!I received this product from influenster in a YSL voxbox for testing proposes only, but you have now found a new customer. This was my first ever YSL product, and I have to say I'm very impressed. I'll be back for more.

YSL‬ Faux Cils Mascara is fantastic!!! It smells good like flowers or something. None of my old mascara smelled this good. I really like that it does look clumpy after it goes on and that it flake on my skin after it dries. The best part is my is my lash look like they long and luxurious just like fake lashes would! Just less work and time. People have asked me were did I get me lashes from, I get smile and tell them there my lashes. They are so shocked!! I also tell about YSL Faux Cils Mascara and they are so happy to learn about it!! After using Faux Cils Mascara I don't think I could ever use another mascara ever. I love the way my lashes feel, look and it also doesn't bother my eye like other brands. I tested the Faux Cils Mascara for free, but all opinions are your own.

I've been wearing this mascara for the past eight years. Like the woman who said she wanted a burgundy mascara for her blonde lashes, that would be me also, but I'm not so silly that I would give this product one star because it gave me a rash. If you have an allergic reaction to a product, don't blame the product, it simply means that product isn't for you, but its value shouldn't be diminished because of an allergic reaction. That's ridiculous. I do have to say, though, that the old formula was better. I don't know what they did to change it, but it doesn't give the super-extreme volume it used to. People used to ask me if my lashes were false (and my lashes, as I said, are naturally blonde), now to achieve the same effect I have to use a lot more product. Second, it doesn't wash off as easily as it used to. There are certain things about this mascara that have to be navigated, such as, if it hits your brow bone, then you should pat some translucent powder on your brow bone and the tips of your lashes. if it smudges under your eyes, which it does on me, too, you should put primer under your eyes, a pat of translucent powder on your lower lashes before you apply it, BUT--only apply the faintest bit on the lashes. This is an old makeup artist trick. If you want to look like Twiggy or Mary Quant or Courtney Love, then by all means, slap that stuff on your lower lashes, use two or three coats. Guaranteed by lunch time you will look like you've been out all night. The upper lashes can be huge, the lower lashes--no, unless you're doing a smokey eye, then all of this is moot. One more tip I can give you is to apply your mascara and then hit yourself in the face with the cool setting on "high" on your blow dryer. It pushes the lashes straight back and freezes them there--instant curl. Works like a charm. I love this burgundy mascara so it's worth the trouble to get this stuff on and off my eyes. Compliments galore.

I really wanted to love this mascara. I really, really did. Unfortunately, that didn't happen. While I'm a HUGE fan of YSL's foundations and powders, I'm one of the few (it seems) who is unable to wear YSL Volume Effet Faux Cils mascara. I'd tried the previous formulation in the past, and was excited for the new, reformulated version in hopes that it might be just the mascara that I'm looking for.. but it wasn't. The color (1 High Density Black) was PERFECT; it was a deep, dark, wet black color that really intensified my blue eyes. The formula does what it says: It gives volume. Lots of volume. Unfortunately for me, however, I had raccoon eyes within two to three hours of applying this mascara. I re-applied the mascara using a lash primer (and the effect was AMAZING!) but again it was smudged on my lower eyelid within a couple of hours. The mascara smudged terribly beneath my eyes, despite the fact that my other makeup was flawless. The new formula doesn't dry to a smudge-free finish and remains slightly wet, even with a single coat. While I am very grateful to have received this YSL Volume Effet Faux Cils Mascara from Influenster and YSL for free in return for my honest opinion, this isn't a mascara that I will be purchasing in the future. At least... not unless YSL develops a smudge-free version.

I love the that the YSL False Lash Effect Mascara is formulated with Pro-Vitamin B5 since it strengthens and protects lashes. I also love that the nylon bristle brush coats each lash, making my lashes look healthy, and gives it a lot of volume. The YSL False Lash Effect Mascara has a nice scent too, it has a fresh scent nothing like I ever expereicnced with other mascaras that tend to have a chemical scent. Your lashes will look super dark too, and will not cause clumps. I love that the YSL False Lash Effect Mascara doesn't flake, smudge, or budge. I'm very impressed with the YSL False Lash Effect Mascara! I think if you want to splurge on a mascara the YSL False Lash Effect Mascara is the way to go. Disclosure: I tested the YSL False Lash Effect Mascara for free via Influenster. However, all thoughts are my own.

I received this mascara complimentary from Influenster, but that does not affect my review. I have FINALLY found my new holy grail mascara. I've been searching for a mascara that does not transfer, thickens, lengthens and holds a curl. This mascara does it all! I will absolutely be repurchasing this! Thank You!

First off, this mascara is so elegantly packaged, the sleek gold cylinder with the YSL emblem looks great on my makeup counter, which I could not say for my other mascaras. The formula itself (high density black) is smooth, buttery, has ultra dark pigmentation, and does not clump. The best feature of this mascara is the lengthening and curling effect, which for me elevates the formulation of this mascara to Holy Grail status. My eyelashes look twice as long using this mascara and fan out beautifully across my lids. If you have blue eyes I would highly recommend the black because WOW it really makes them pop! The one downside I have is that I think the brush could be smaller to help apply product in the corners of the eyes and near the waterline. I tested Faux Cils Mascara for free, but all opinions are my own.

I really do like this mascara. One of my favorite makeup products to test is new mascara so I was very excited to try this. Usually, I have to use a primer in order to make it look like I have full and thick lashes. I was able to skip that step thanks to YSL's formula. My normal routine is to curl my lashes, apply primer, curl again and then add two coats of mascara. WIth YSL, all I have to do is curl my lashes and apply two-three coats. Instantly I have the illusion of thicker, longer and fuller lashes. I received many compliments from people stating that my eyelashes looked like falsies, giving me the pride of being able to say that they were real. The formula does not clump and it is easy to apply. My issue, which is why I did not give it five stars, is that after a few hours it does start to run. My allergies get pretty bad during Spring and my eyes water constantly. I have to have a mascara that does not run so that I do not get the raccoon look. If they changed this formula to waterproof, I might have a new go-to. Other than that, this is truly a wonderful mascara and I really do love the way it makes my eyes look. I was given the opportunity to try this product for free from Influenster but all opinions are from my own personal experience.

I received this mascara courtesy of influenster, and it was perfect timing! Preparing for my wedding in the coming weeks, looking for a good mascara has been on my list. I intended on finding a mascara that would go well wth false lashes, however, with this, I don't think I'll need itchy falsies! With that said, I will not be using this mascara for my wedding, but the waterproof version! (Duh) And I'm so excited to have had the opportunity to try this mascara. I'm already a big fan of YSL lip products! Note - I did receive this product for free, however, the review I've weitten is 100% my bride-on-a-mascara-mission opinion!

I love this mascara! It makes my eyelashes look long and full. The mascara has a creamy texture and goes on smoothly. The brush is nice and full which coats all your lashes including the little ones. I have gotten many compliments on my lashes since I have been using this mascara. No clumps on my lashes or on the brush. Definitely worth the price!

This is probably the best volume adding mascara I've used. It's black as night, doesn't clump, and stays soft all day, I can't stand it when a mascara gets dry and stiff--or worse, flaky. This stays supple all day long. Doesn't take a chisel and a prayer to get off at the end of the day, either! I did receive this product in a Vox Box to review, but all opinions are my own.

I totally love this mascara! I have never tried any products from YSL before, however, I was thoroughly impressed with the quality of this mascara. Not only did it provide a dark, rich, black color and length to my lashes, but it also left them feeling very soft with the argan oils in the formula. I have never used a mascara that was naturally scented before. Usually you can only smell the chemicals, but this mascara smelled amazing! Like perfume for my lashes! I will absolutely be purchasing this product in the future. Thank you to Influenster for providing this to me as a free testing product to use and review! All opinions on this product are my own.

I received this for review from influenster. The packaging is beautiful. This mascara just didn't work for me. I have thin, short lashes and I had high hopes for this mascara giving me luxurious lashes. It just didn't do much at all. I can buy a drugstore mascara and get better results. It didn't provide me with the length or volume that I desperately need and look for in a mascara.

YSL has gorgeous sleek packaging for all their products, and this mascara is no exception. The brush is perfect for hitting every lash and does an exceptional job of volumizing my lashes. It even does a good job on the lower lashes as well. I do not feel that it puts a lot of weight on my lashes and they still look wispy as if I were wearing a pair of false lashes. It has great intense black color, and it last the duration of the day while I needed it too. Though it last all day, it does not take much effort to remove it once it is time to clean your face. I found it to be very easy, and it was not abrasive on my lashes and I did not lose any in the process of wiping it off. I received this product complimentary of Influenster for testing purposes. All opinions are of my own.

I love mascara but I have yet to try any from YSL. I was sent the YSL Volume Effet Faux Cils mascara from Influenster and I was so excited to finally try it. As someone who is obsessed with mascara and has tried different brands, I absolutely love this one. It goes on so smoothly and it smells good. I can layer it on and I don't get clumping. I also love that I don't get raccoon eyes at the end of the day. This is definitely one of my favorites and I would buy another tube as soon as I finish with this one! Plus can we talk about how cute the gold packaging is? Love!

I received this mascara from influenster for testing purposes only But this is my review based on my own opinion So I finally got a chance to try the mascara. My first impression based on packaging alone was Wow,pretty and fancy! And I love the gold tube. The scent is soft and feminine. I've never had a mascara that smelled so nice. It's very pigmented. Not only did it make my lashes look full but they were also dark. And the creamy formula didn't flake or clump. I can't wait to try the purple shade. I would definitely recommend it and be using it again

I love the look that this mascara creates. I bought it once but stopped using it because i ended up with mascara marks all along my brow bone. Obviously this is only an issue if your lashes are long enough to hit your brows. I like my makeup to stay in place so I don't have to be looking in the mirror and fixing ever few hours. I tried to find others that created the same look, but could not. I ended up buying it again. Now I use a waterproof mascara over top to seal.

This mascara gives great volume and separates your lashes so you don't look like you have a bunch of spider legs on your eyes. The brush is also amazing. I sometimes have issues with brushes hitting my lash line and causing me to blink and get mascara all over my face. This brush is soft and delivers the perfect amount of mascara to my lashes without glooping all over the place. I typically put my makeup on before 7 am and take it off around 11 pm and the mascara is still there and not flaking. The oils in the mascara keep your lashes soft and flutterly while still giving you that OOMPH of volume. Everything about this mascara is perfection. I was lucky enough to receive this mascara in the High Density Black shade for testing purposes from Influenster but these opinions are all my own. Honestly, I never would have splurged on this just on my own but now I want to buy another shade!
