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.

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.

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 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 complimentary from influenster for testing purposes. I honestly thought it was going to be like any other mascara but it's not. I personally love the brush because it coats every lash without leaving any clumps and it has a slight fragrance to it. I love how dark it leaves my lashes as well. Although I got this product free, this is my honest opinion and will definitely purchase this product once i finish mine.

I received this mascara complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes, but once I run out of this product I will be repurchasing. I am a contact lens wearer and this mascara uses so many natural ingredients that I actually feel safe putting it on my eyes. It has a very pleasant smell and the formula lasts all day long. It both adds volume and lengthens my lashes. I honestly can't say enough good things about it. Obsessed.

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!

I got this mascara to try from Influenster. I never expected to like it as much as I do! It's super easy to apply and the wand is comfortable to hold and manipulate. It really makes my lashes stand out, I got a ton of compliments. My only complaint is it's not waterproof. It lasted a good percentage of the day, which I was impressed with. Influenster provided this mascara for free but all opinions are my own.

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 received my mascara courtesy of Influenster at no cost, but my opinions are entirely my own. Everything about this mascara is perfect. The two-toned tube is beautiful. It smells wonderful and healthy, you can almost feel your eyelashes drinking up the nutrients. My middle aged lashes seemed to lengthen and looked young and fresh The formula was creamy and coated each eyelash individually without clumping. It lengthened and gave great volume, with no spider-web look. . The mascara stayed where I wanted it to be all day, ON my eyelashes!!! When it was time to remove it at the end of the day, I didn't have any problems with pulling any of my eyelashes out while removing the makeup. I look forward to trying other YSL products!!

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 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 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

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.

I use to have the old formula of this when it first came around, I wasn't a huge fan then, it was drying and a little heavy on my lashes. Now that it has been reformulated though, I am absolutely in love. The b5 in the product makes it smell lovely, instead of like burnt rubber that most mascaras smell like, and along with that it helps the formula be alot more moisturizing. It lengths and thickens my lashes, but even better, it does not dry out, it does not clump, and it does not flake!! I have been recommending this as a purchase to everyone. *I received this product complimentary from Influenster for testing/reviewing purposes, but the opinions are all my own/*

I have very thin lashes and usually need 2 or 3 coats of mascara, but with this I only really need one coat for every day use (2 for nighttime). Very smooth and not chunky which tends to happen often for me with styles that are not waterproof. Overall, I love it and will definitely be purchasing once my sample runs out :) I tested the Faux Cils Mascara for free, but all opinions are my own.

I am very picky about mascara and tend to stick with what I know and feel comfortable with. I absolutely Love this mascara and have switched to YSL for good! I hate when lashes look and feel clumpy and this brush is long and works perfectly to remove any clumps and left my lashes lengthy and with great volume! The color is great and I love the variety of color options and will try a new fun color next time! I tested the Faux Cils Mascara for free and I'm grateful to leave my honest opinion.
