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'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 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 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 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 was looking for a mascara that I could apply without having to worry about clumps or reapplying throughout the day. I am in a fast-moving, stressful job that I need to put on my mascara in the morning and not have to think about it again until the next morning. I love that this mascara is a deep black that defines my lashes easily. It looks great for everyday wear with one coat but also great for nights out with two or three coats! I tested the Faux Cils Mascara compliments of Influenster, 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!!

Maybe I've been buying grocery store makeup for too long, but this was a luxurious mascara. I only needed a few strokes on my lashes and I was very happy with results. It added a lot of volume! Unlike some of the other comments, I didn't notice a lot of smearing. It pretty much stayed on my eyes. I received this product for free in exchange for my honest review.

It has a wonderful smell. I love how well it goes on, no clumps whatsoever! It will be my number one mascara to use from now on for sure. Thank you Influenster for allowing me to review this product! #YSLMascara #RaiseTheVolume #YSLFalsieLashes

I've heard plenty of positive things about YSL mascaras and was extremely excited to have received this mascara for review from Influenster. When looking at mascara, I want my lashes to have this great va va boom look and with this mascara it is definitely volumizing. What can usually be unflattering, this mascara providest a"spidery lash" effect, which helps enhance the volume of your lashes. This helped completely at work when I wanted to appear awake with nothing but mascara on and no fake lashes (always a plus.) I would definitely purchase again once it's done; because it's a deluxe item, it won't be done anytime soon.

First off, this mascara is so elegantly packaged, the sleek gold cylinder with the YSL emblem looks great on my makeup counter, which I could not say for my other mascaras. The formula itself (high density black) is smooth, buttery, has ultra dark pigmentation, and does not clump. The best feature of this mascara is the lengthening and curling effect, which for me elevates the formulation of this mascara to Holy Grail status. My eyelashes look twice as long using this mascara and fan out beautifully across my lids. If you have blue eyes I would highly recommend the black because WOW it really makes them pop! The one downside I have is that I think the brush could be smaller to help apply product in the corners of the eyes and near the waterline. I tested Faux Cils Mascara for free, but all opinions are my own.

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.

After receiving my free sample thanks to influenster I was anxious to try a new mascara, I'm a bit of a make-up horder and enjoy trying new products. After using this mascara for the last 2 weeks here are my top 3 favorite things. One I only needed to use one maybe two coats for a more dramatic look and it never got clumpy. Number 2 it's made to last for at least 8 to 12 hours. Number 3 The high density black color was perfect for every day and not to dark for a fair skin blonde girl.

I received this mascara for free as a reviewing and testing purpose from influenster, though my review is my own genuine opinion. My first impression upon opening my box was that the packaging of this mascara is beyond lovely, I loved the tube color, as well as the YSL marking. When I actually went to test the mascara I realized that it has a light perfume scent to it, with floral notes. I didn't think it was overpowering, and it made me smile realizing it had this special scent. So the mascara itself is actually pretty dark and pigmented, which is definitely a great thing I think! It made my lashes a lot longer looking, and also look fuller without clumping as well!. I would definitely recommend this product, especially if you like the faux-lash look.

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.

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!

This is the best mascara that I've tried--hands down! The brush is big, but not so big that it's hard to get the lashes in your inner corner or on your bottom lid. The brush separates, lengthens, and also volumizes lashes. The mascara lasts all day without any flaking or smudging. If you're in the market for a high-end mascara, I definitely recommend this one. I received this mascara free for testing purposes, but all opinions are my own. I will be purchasing this when I run out!
