Volume Effet Faux Cils

Overall rating

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 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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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 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.

Everything about this product from packaging to application screams luxury and makes you feel flawless. The brush design didn't do much for me, but surprisingly there was no lack in volume. The formula is splendid and does not flake, and even worked for me in a pinch when I needed to use it as a liner! The color payout is fabulous, as it shows up blackest black, which is lovely. Another thing I really enjoy is the click you fell when you twist the cap closed. It's as if the product is reassuring you it is completely closed tight, and no air is makin its way inside to dry out the product! The only problems I had with the product are 1) I've noticed there is a lot of excess product that comes out on the wand as well as on the rim when the wand is placed back inside. Just make sure to scrape the excess from the wand on the rim before applying, and wipe off the rim after finishing application to both eyes and you should be fine. This will help avoid any clumping and help to prolong the life of your mascara. My biggest issue was with the scent. There is an obvious scent here, and that is unsettling. Personally, I believe anything that can have a scent needs to stay away from your eyes. Seriously, fragrance is among the more common triggers for sensitivity issues. I love this, but next time, no fragrance please! I received this product free for testing purposes, but all opinions are my own. Follow my blog: timekeeler on Wordpress!

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!

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*

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.

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.

I can definitely see a difference. It went on great, it gave my lashes so much volume and it dried quickly. I hate when the lashes stay kind of wet, because I like to move on with my day and immediately forget about my eye makeup. The last stage was to see how it lasted all day long, and what it looked like after a 9 hour work day and a dusting session of my house. A little bit of smudging under the lower lashes, just like I always get. What a bummer. But the top lashes, heck even the bottom lashes, still look super voluminous and stand out.

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 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 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.

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.
