Volume Effet Faux Cils

Overall rating

First of all, it does what it says. I have really long lashes and with this mascara, my lashes are even longer. I love the way the mascara goes on my lashes. Not too thick or thin. If you want to splurge on a lux item mascara then this is it. Well worth the price!

I absolutely love this ysl false lash effect mascara. I tried it in the shade, high density black, the color is amazing one of the darkest blacks I have ever tried. The mascara coats the lashes very smoothly and evenly. The formula is easy to apply and you can apply more coats if needed. What I loved about the mascara is it did not flake like other mascaras I have tried. I was sent this product from Influenster for free to try, but my opinions of this mascara are my own.

This mascara is amazing! I received 1 High Density Black. The formula doesn’t clump, and one coat gives you volume and length to your lashes giving you a dramatic effect and will make your eyes pop! My mascara stayed put all day and I experienced zero flaking and no under eye smudges. The formula also smells good. It has a light floral smell to it. I see this being my go to mascara. This is a excellent product and I highly recommend it. *I tested the Faux Cils Mascara for free, thanks of Influenster*

Love this mascara!! I'm usually hesitant about using new mascaras since they're either too wet and heavy for my lashes or too dry and flaky. My lashes are long to begin with but this mascara just gave them an extra volume and definition. Even my boyfriend noticed the difference and I got lots of comments through the night when I wore It. Almost like I was wearing real false lashes without the extra weight. I definitely recommend this and will be repurchasing! Best discovery ever!! I did receive this for free from Influenster to test but opinions are my own and so is the decision to repurchase!

This mascara is incredible. I have relatively long lashes naturally, and this product makes them twice as long and full without a single clump. I received this as part of an Influenster campaign and was skeptical at first. I've been using the same mascara for years and every other brand I have tried fell flat and didn't compare, until I used this product. It's the perfect consistency and goes on super smooth while adding so much length. I will definitely be purchasing this from now on. I have received so many compliments and was asked if I had eyelash extensions on. The only slight con is that it is a little difficult to remove, but that is completely outweighed by how great my lashes look all day.

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 had the opportunity to test this mascara for free via Influenster in exchange for my honest opinion, and let me say, I was THRILLED to have the chance - I've always been a big fan of YSL lip products but never tried anything else. I've been enjoying it a lot and do reach for it about as much as I do my other regular/all time fav high end mascara. I have huge lashes, but they are blonde, and as such, totally invisible without mascara. I've found that sometimes mascaras that are really hyped don't do much for me because they are curling - I already cover my browbone in mascara on my own so I don't need that lol - or mostly lengthening, etc. I go for volume, pigment, and definition. This one packs the punch I need. The only reason I gave it 4 stars was there was *something* missing that I can't put my finger on - maybe a little more definition, or even volume. My lashes looked super long, but I wanted a more even spread. Either way, it's a great product and I totally recommend it. Fun to use and the packaging makes you feel like you're holding something expensive. I'm a believer.

The package is so simple yet classy. I love the two toned gold/rose gold color and the logo being embossed on the opening of the tub is beautiful. The mascara it self has a very floral smell to it and the consistency isn't too thick or runny. The formula gave me long,thick lashes. Not to mention the fact that this is one of the best black mascaras I have tried in a long time. The only thing that I don't like about the mascara is the applicator brush. I feel that a thinner brush would make it easier to go from root to tip without coating my eyelid. I tested the Faux Cils Mascara for free, but all opinions are my own.

I just have to say that this is THE BEST mascara i have ever used. First off, when I use a new mascara it takes days for me to get used to it, it's always too wet, and my lashes droop! This mascara is perfection, not to wet, not to dry, the first time I tried it I was like, now this is what I'm talking about!! I have told anyone that will listen about this mascara!! I received this product for free, but I will be purchasing it when this runs out! All opinions are my own!

I received this mascara complimentary from influenster for testing purposes, and I must say this is the best mascara I have ever used. I absolutely love it and I'm so glad that I was able to try it, otherwise I'm not sure I would have. I love that it keeps the lashes soft and flexible instead of hard and stiff and clumpy but still giving great length and volume. A little of this goes a long way for me, I can dip the brush once or twice and it gives me the look I desire. It even has a pleasant smell which is nice. I am very pleased with this mascara and will continue to use it in the future.

I received this mascara as a free gift to review and can I just say that I am in love! I have short stubby lashes and this mascara makes them feel super soft and volumized. Unfortunately I haven't run across a super lengthening mascara that actually works on my small lashes, but that isn't YSL's fault ;p This mascara would be fabulous for someone with bigger eyes, because the wand is so large, but I definitely made it work. As far as high end makeup goes, I definitely would recommend this mascara.

I love this YSLmascara, I had the black color and upon my first time using it I noticed it went on easier and didnt smudge, it made my lashes look so much longer and fuller! I have very thin, small lashes and am fair skinned so it made a huge difference in my overall eye look! I love how open

I absolutely adore this mascara! I applied one coat and obtained more volume than when I tried 3D fiber lashes. I was honestly blown away by how long my lashes were. After losing my lashes last year to chemo, they are short and sparse, but the YSL Faux Cil mascara made them look full and healthy. I tried the black color, but all the colors look amazing. I received this mascara for free but the opinions are my own and are honest.

Unfortunately it smudged under my eyes within half an hour! It's so pretty on my lashes, it makes them long, black, soft, and thick without clumps, but almost immediately it started making gray marks under my eyes. This is a problem I have often with mascara, I'm sure this one is great for lots of others.

I've used a lot of mascara's over the years and it takes a lot to impress me but YSL has met the mark. First impression i didn't like the applicator brush, it was the old school style and usually from experience clumps easily, but not the new YSL formula. It went on clump free and stayed that way even after my usual over application. Also another note worthy quality was the smell.! It smells SO GOOD, That is hard to come by in a mascara these days. I would definitely recommend this mascara to my friends and will be buying in the future. I tested the Faux Cils Mascara for free, thanks to influenster, but all opinions are my own.

I am a mascara girl 100%! I love trying new mascara, and I need it because I have blond eyelashes, so I am always looking for something to make my lashes more defined. This mascara is amazing! It is thick without being clumpy, goes on smoothly, and has great coverage. I do not have to go over my lashes again and again to get definition with this mascara. It is by far the best mascara I have ever tried. *I received this mascara complimentary from Influenster to review. All opinions are my 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.

the best mascara I've ever used. I have long, dark lashes that other mascaras cannot seem to "handle", but after receiving a sample-size of this one a year and a half ago, I was quite impressed and will now only wear YSL's Volume Effet Faux Cils. (My hairdresser asked me which mascara I use, as she noticed my lashes whilst styling my hair!). The black color is rich, deep, luscious, and perfect for me, and I must say that this mascara adds not only volume but elegance, drama, and definition. EXCELLENT product and very highly recommended.
