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.

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.

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 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 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.

I just received this mascara and only used it a couple times, but I really like it. It doesn't flake and lasts all day. And it removes easily. I have watery eyes, so I will definitely buy the waterproof formula. It's very heavy, so I needed to recurl after application. It gave my lashes length and volume, but because my lashes are short, not in a faux lash way. *I tested the Faux Cils Mascara for free, but all opinions 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.

. As soon as you start swiping, you’ll get a whiff of the flowery smell. I didn’t have to apply a bagillion coats or suffer from raccoon eyes later because of the flaking. The brush coats your lashes evenly and definitely doesn’t clump. My lashes are pretty long on their own so I’m always looking for volume, which this definitely did, without giving the spidery effect. My only wish is that the formula was darker. I love intensely dark mascara. ** The Estee Lauder Faux Cils Mascara was sent to me for free through Influenster for testing purposes but all opinions are my own

First thing's first, talk about classy packaging! But with that being said, most of what you pay goes to the packaging! Don't get me wrong I do like the quality of this mascara, but it's a little too pricey! What I do love about it is the brush, I have very thin lashes that goes even thinner at the ends, most brushes could not get those few strands to come out, but this mascara for some reason can reach the stubborn ends. This mascara coats my lashes pretty well, mind you, I have very thin

I received this mascara complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes. This mascara is THE mascara to have in your makeup arsenal. It does not too thick, or too light, just the right amount of lengthening and volume. It goes on easily with minimal clumping and is easily buildable for a more dramatic look. I had no flaking or running throughout the day. The faint perfumed scent is a pleasant touch that makes it feel luxe. I would highly recommend this product to anyone who needs amascara.

Not only does this mascara smell incredible... but the volume and fullness you get from using this is supreme. I have light blond lashes so the transformation from when I use this mascara is stunning and looks like night and day. I'm so glad I tried this stuff. It's light and moisturizing so it doesn't flake off half way through the day like other mascaras. This will definitely be my go to mascara moving forward... it's worth the investment when you compare the quality of drug store mascaras to what you get with this YSL mascara! xo - Allie @ Peachfully Chic

I got this mascara in an influenster Vox Box for free and I swear I was so happy! This mascara does what it says. It makes you look like you have false lashes! It holds a curl perfectly and it smells amazing! Its a luxury product and its something I would purchase many times. Its easy to remove and doesn't flake at all! As a freelance makeup artist I use this on clients and all I get is positive feedback from them!

the best mascara I've ever used. I have long, dark lashes that other mascaras cannot seem to "handle", but after receiving a sample-size of this one a year and a half ago, I was quite impressed and will now only wear YSL's Volume Effet Faux Cils. (My hairdresser asked me which mascara I use, as she noticed my lashes whilst styling my hair!). The black color is rich, deep, luscious, and perfect for me, and I must say that this mascara adds not only volume but elegance, drama, and definition. EXCELLENT product and very highly recommended.

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.
