Volume Effet Faux Cils

Overall rating

I am so in love with this mascara! I have very short lashes and any mascara i tried never gave me length. This mascara gave me length and volume! I received this in black and it really makes my lashes pop. The formula goes on super smooth and doesn't clump. I only had to apply one coat to really tell a huge difference in my lashes. I received this product from influenster for resting/reviewing purposes and this is 100% my own opinion.

this mascara is awesome. I tried it for free last week thanks to Influenster and I couldn't be more thrilled with it. It goes on so nice, it doesn't flake even after hours of wear and when you remove it, it leaves your lashes feeling so soft! The high density black is bold and fierce. I kept getting compliments on my lashes because they stood out so much. Everyone thought I was wearing fake lashes. It doesn't hurt that it smells so pretty like perfume. I've never had a mascara smell like this before! Love love it. Def my new favorite!

I received the Faux Cils gratis courtesy Influenster. I have terrible allergies, so the first test for me is if it runs because of my watery eyes. It seriously stayed put all day. It gives plenty of volume and length. I have very stubby, very blonde lashes, so this mascara can seriously plump them up. The only reason it didn't get five stars is because the formula is pretty thick. I prefer a bit thinner formula so I can build my mascara without any clumps. This one did not clump after several coats, but it did not give me the same length that several coats of Mally will. I like that the brush is very long, and it does bottom lashes beautifully. I will purchase this when I run out.

I have long been a believer in good mascara, and I was perfectly happy using my tried and true old brand. However, when the opportunity arose to test out YSL's Faux Cils thanks to Influenster, I was excited but ready to be disappointed. This product does NOT disappoint. The mascara tube itself is so classy and chic, and the packaging aesthetic is well thought-out. Upon opening it, I was concerned that the brush looks a little small and there isn't much to it, but the second I swept this on my lashes I was impressed. It goes on smoothly and evenly -- no clumping, even with multiple coats. And there is the faintest perfume that is lovely and not overpowering; such a thoughtful bonus. It wears well throughout the day -- if I'm going out after work, I do like to put on an extra coat, but it doesn't fade noticeably. I haven't had any issues with smudging or running, even though I'm a person who is constantly fussing and touching my eyes (I know, I know...). The best part is, at the end of the day, it comes off easily and smoothly, and my eyelashes feel as soft and as healthy as if I'd never put on any mascara at all. I'm a true believer now! I tested YSL Volume Effet Faux Cils for free, however all opinions expressed here are my own.

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 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.

Recently I received my YSL VoxBox courtesy of Influenster! The box came with YSL's False Lash Effect Mascara! I can honestly say that I love it! It keeps my lashes soft, it doesn't make them stiff or clumpy. Also, it does really have a pleasant smell unlike most mascaras! It makes my lashes look full AND long, which is tough to find in a mascara! This is now my everyday mascara. I received it free in the mail courtesy of Influenster, join the party at Influenster.com!! It's free! The opinions expressed in this review are my own.

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.

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.

Pros.. Definitely adds volume and length Smells delicious Love the packaging very chic and simple def. Covers the elegance of YSL GREAT formula Con's... I wasn't wearing my powder makeup and the mascara on my lashes transferred to my lids ...but the 2nd time I used it I was wearing eye shadow and it didn't transfer so maybe u always gotta wear a powder so the oils from ur face don't attract the mascara. All in all I love it and will definitely be buying since I was sent this in a voxbox from influenster for reviewing purposes only.

Best things about this mascara: It works just like it says it will. I got lots of volume with good separation. It smells amazing! It's not gross and chemical smelling. It's like a tube of flowers! It stays soft and doesn't make lashes brittle. The tube is gorgeous! I tested the Faux Cils Mascara for free, but all opinions are my own.

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 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 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 was given this mascara for free from Influenster, and was beyond stoked. It smells good, slightly floral. The container is really attractive too. The formula is really thick, but not heavy, so your lashes are coated thoroughly, without feeling like it. I'm used to cheap mascaras that wish they could replicate the look that this mascara creates, so understandably I'm a little intimidated. I definitely like the length it gives me, and the amount of volume in general. I haven't had any issues with stay power, flaking, or smudging. I don't use primer. I look forward to wearing this more often, and will definitely buy it again.

This mascara is my best mascara so far. I had got this mascara to test out for free by Influenster and let me tell you I love Influenster for that. When I first got the mascara i love how it was gold and not you average black so that was a plus . Then when I try it on OMG , that's when I fell in love with it . I love how it make my lashes look without putting on two coats of it . With this mascara I don't need my false lashes . :)

I used YSL mascara years ago and loved it. Since then I have hopped around from brand to brand, literally have about 6-8 at any given time. Scoot it on over - I have been converted back! I was absolutely thrilled to see that i was going to get this free from influenster...formula is super creamy and goes on beautifully. No clumps here! May have gotten this for free but opinions are mine. Worth the $$$.

I was pleasantly surprised that I received a full size tube of the mascara. I liked the packaging. The wand it very easy to control and the mascara does not clump at all when applying. When I look for mascara, I'm always wanting volume over length as I already have long eyelashes. The mascara was easy to apply and the wand creates volume over the lashes. The downfall, I don't like the dried effect. I received this complimentary for review. My opinions are my own.
