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.

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 was sent this mascara to review however all opinions are that of my own. Pros : Curls lashes amazingly without having to actually curl them first. Wears all day and night no wilting or flaking off. Removes promptly with a proper makeup remover solution or wipe. Smells fantastic ! Cons : Is on the pricier side. Can clump my lashes if I am not on the careful side but I have found that using the tip of the applicator to do some detail work by lifting and separating individual lashes fixes this issue. Only one coat really needed for a luscious yet natural and not over done look. Very impressed with this mascara and would consider re-purchasing it !

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 absolutely love this product, I was lucky enough to be chosen by Influenster to try this product free and my opinions are my own. This is great it really gives the effect of wearing fake lashes without the hassle of fake lashes. When I applied it for the first time it went on so easily and then looked at my eyes and said WOW! that really accentuated my eyes and they looked absolutely gorgeous. This is a product that I plan on buying for as long as they continue to make it. Every woman wants long beautiful lashes and this product can deliver that and it is super easy to remove with a little eye makeup remover. I loved it and highly recommend it.

When I first received this mascara I was a bit skeptical. I had used designer mascaras in the past with horrible results. When I opened the box, the first thing I noticed was how sexy the mascara looked. I was very eager to see how good this product in a gold tube was, so I decided to give it a try right away. The smell caught my attention right away. It was very pleasant but light and not too overpowering. I consider my eyelashes to be below average, so I am serious about my mascara! This product went on very easily and was not messy or clumpy. It gave my lashes a lot of volume and some length as well, but I usually prefer a lot of length. It was still enough for all my friends to notice and ask what kind of mascara I was wearing though. Overall, I really liked this product. Even though I received it from Influenster to test out, I truly liked this mascara and I would definitely go out and purchase it again.

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.

I was so excited when I received this mascara complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes. The first thing I noticed when I opened the mascara is that it smells amazing! Which is strange for a mascara, since they always smell quite strange. This mascara smells like perfume! The formula is nice and lightweight, it won't leave your lashes with clumps and it's not sticky. I love that it's buildable. I can do five coats of this mascara and my lashes will still look like lashes and not like spider legs. I love that they kept the applicator shape quite simple, not too thick or thin, just a classic mascara applicator shape. I find that the classic wands do way more for my lashes. Overall I love that they've reformulated this mascara because it feels like my lashes are getting an extra nourishment along with the volume and length that I want. The beautiful two-toned gold/rose gold packaging is a nice plus.

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!

Yves Saint Laurent Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils is an amazing mascara. It's labeled as a "luxurious mascara for a false lash effect". And let me tell you it does just that. Within two coats you have thicker more volumized eyelashes. It's lightweight and it dries really quick. It's also really easy to remove without makeup remover. The one downside is that its scented. I would love for a version that has no scent to be sold. I'm not a huge fan of flora/powdery scent.

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 product from the packaging to the scent and of course the formula. This mascara is amazing and really gives my lashes great volume and length. It doesn't flake and leave black specs under my eyes. It does not budge once it's on and doesn't give me raccoon eyes from smudging. The wand is great at seperating the lashes. I am in love with the scent it is like an herbal tea scent from what it's infused with. It's a very subtle scent but lingers all day I still pick up on the scent here and there throughout the day. Not your typical chemical smell you usually get from a mascara. Last but not least the packaging is so beautiful. Very elegant and classy with the shiney gold tube with the rose gold accents. There is a reason why this mascara is top seller right now. It is absolutely amazing and I think it is worth every penny. This product was sent to me for review by YSL and Influesnter.

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!!

This mascara is perfection in a bottle. This mascara really volumizes and lengthens my lashes. My lashes touch my eyebrows when I wear this mascara. It doesn't not flake and it does not leave clumpy lashes. It seriously lays beautifully on my lashes. Definitely worth the hype. I recieved this product complimentary from Influentser. I will define be purchasing this product as soon as my complimentary product is finished.
