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 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.

This mascara is AMAZING! But, I mean would I really expect anything less from YSL! The name is synonymous with beauty and perfection! I received my mascara in the mail and I admit...I had my doubts. But 1. it glides on so SMOOTH, 2. made my eyes pop! 3. NO CLUMPING It added volume and length and honestly, it looks like when I used to get eyelash extensions. I may have found a new obsession. definitely not a bad thing. I am so hooked on this mascara! I am a girl who wears lipstick and mascara for my everyday look, and occasionally I may throw on some cheek. So this mascara is a STAPLE for my everyday look. And, at night it washes off with ease! yet during an allergy attack with itchy watery eyes it didn't make me look like a raccoon either! YSL you definitely know what you're doing. absolute and complete and total...PERFECTION!!

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 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 have never tried a high end mascara before and always wanted to. I was super excited when I received this mascara and couldn't wait to try it out. First I just love the two toned gold packaging. It looks so sleek. I love the wand of this mascara. It make applying the mascara so easy to your lashes. I just fell in love the first time I used this mascara!! I wear mascara just about everyday, with a full face or just by itself. My lashes looked so long and full like I had false ones on. I was just love with how amazing my lashes looked. It has become my new favorite mascara and this is so worth every penny. *I received this product for free for testing and this opinion is my own.

I purchased Volume Effet Faux Cils #8 subline grey. I just love this color. I have large blue eyes and was looking for something soft and natural that would enhance my eyes. Blacks and browns can appear a bit harsh on me. I've looked for a long time for something exactly like this. So on behalf of all the bright eyed over 50 women. THANK YOU!

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!

I received the Volume Effet Faux Cils mascara complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes and couldn't be happier about it. I used to wear false lashes but now I don't have too! This mascara gives me unbelievably long and full lashes without clumping or too many coats. I absolutely love this product and will definitely buy and recommend it.

This was my very first time trying #YSLmascara and it was an exciting experience. I used this product to help enhance my own eyelashes because I'm not a big fan of false eyelashes, it's too much of a hassle for me. When I first put this mascara on it definitely made it look as though I had false eyelashes! Yay!! I learned a tip that you should wipe off your mascara brush once you've used it to prevent clumping of the lashes. Glad I found out about that trick because the second time I used this mascara it clumped a little. The only thing I don't care for about this product is the perfume scent to the mascara but it wouldn't stop me from using it in the future. I'd definitely recommend using this mascara. Also, I received this as a complimentary product from Influenster (via VoxBox) and all opinions are my own.

This mascara is just as wonderful as its beautiful gold tube makes it look. It even SMELLS great -- light and feminine. I usually use a lash primer before applying mascara, but it's definitely not needed for YSL's Faux Cils. It goes on smoothly and effortlessly, and the brush allows for maximum coverage and easy lash-combing. My lashes instantly look longer and fuller without looking clumpy. And I didn't even need to wipe off excess product when applying to my lower lashes. I've searched far and wide for the perfect mascara, and I think I've found it! DISCLAIMER: I received a free tube of this product on behalf of Influenster. All opinions are mine and mine alone!

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.

The packaging on this product is absolutely stunning. The brush itself is great and the black is very black. I would like for it to curl my lashes a little more and I found it to smudge after wearing for an extended period of time. I cannot not show off the packaging on my vanity though because it is absolutely georgeous

Before trying YSL Faux Cils Mascara I thought all mascaras were the same. I was a strictly drugstore mascara woman because I did not believe I needed to splurge for mascara. I’m so glad I have been proven wrong, thanks to this mascara. I started off by curling my eyelashes, after the first coat YSL Faux Cils Mascara lengthened my lashes, my short little lashes were touching my eyelids, and it was incredible! After the second coat the lashes were so voluminous multiple people asked if I had on false eyelashes, like I said…incredible! I love the classic style brush and the formula is smooth, no clumps. After a full day of school and work I found I did not have any smudge around my eyes. I am so thankful Influenster gave me the opportunity to try YSL Faux Cils Mascara, though my opinions are completely my own and I will be purchasing this mascara in brown to add to my collection also!

I was able to try this mascara for free compliments of Influenster in exchange for my opinions and review. I'm not one who wears or has worn mascara a lot. I honestly just started to more within the last two years. This is a quality mascara and worth the price. I will buy this again, once this tube runs out. I love that I can put more than one coat on without it clumping, or feeling heavy. This is a very lightweight mascara. This isn't very "eye-popping" if that's what you're looking for, but if you want a natural and full look, then look no further! I love that this doesn't have a harsh chemical smell too! It makes me feel better about putting this on my lashes. Not to mention that it comes in a stylish tube too! This is definitely a quality mascara and worth the investmet. Bye bye drug store mascara, hello YSL! :)

This mascara is able to transform dull straight lashes, to beautiful voluminous lashes! It is easy to just put on one coat of this, without an eyelash curler, and receive dramatic results. When going out for a night on the town, curl those eyelashes, add a second coat and your eyelashes can be compared to fake lashes! Definitely a recommended purchase. Also, if you're worried about the price, YSL promotes high quality makeup and it lasts for a couple of months!
