Hanh P asked: Is this good for sensitive eyes? May 24, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (1) No (0)
Ximena M: Though this mascara is not specifically made for sensitive eyes, I have found it to be gentle on your lashes, easy to remove and hence does not migrate to your eyes. It has been made for many years and survives new formulations so it definitely is a great product. I avoid waterproof mascara because it definitely is harsh on eyelashes and removing the mascara allows for it to seep into eyes much more easily. May 24, 2014
Reply to Ximena Good answer? Yes (1) No (0)
Hanh P: Thanks for your reply! Does this also apply to the VOLUME EFFET FAUX CILS NOIR RADICAL? I know that Noir Radical is a darker black but do you reckon they both have the same effect and is also gentle on the eye? May 26, 2014

m f asked: does this mascara makes lash heavy? Jul 20, 2012
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (1) No (0)
FRANCIS P O: NO it is the best of all the mascaras I have used . I am a make up artist so I GUESS i am very picky when it comes to mascara. However at one time one of my students in my esthetics class put a cleanser containing g. acid and she melted my eyelashes and this is the only product that made my lashes look normal. Now they have grown back but as long as you have an eyelash comb you can layer it and comb it through . If you nice eyelashes you only need one coat or you can apply condition first than use this m, your eyelashes will look fantastic. Take it from someone that used to wear false eyelashes everyday a long time ago. This mascara is the best! Jul 25, 2012

Pamela C: Hi
while the Volume Effet Faux Cils does thicken your lashes, I do not experience my lashes as feeling heavier. I am very pleased with the way my lashes I look and feel. I also find that this mascara stays on well during the day and washes of quite easily at night.

kathy m: Hi- I use this mascara ALL the time. It does not make your lashes heavy at all. I lenghens and thickens them to the point where it looks like you have on fake lashes, without having that clumpy look.

KsKitty asked: Which of these mascara looks great with green eyed the burgundy or deep blue etc ? Nov 8, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Susan K: Hi,
I have green eyes and find the purple mascara actually is the most flattering. It doesn't look too purple on. Burgundy seems that it would be flattering, but I don't like to use red hues near the eye because if your eyes get red it may actually highlight it. The blue is good too. I often use a brown mascara for a softer look for everyday. Hope this helps you. This is a very good mascara, you get good length and separation.

Ellen D: All of them! The effect is subtle - I like the burgundy because it's a little less harsh than black, and the blue makes the whites of your eyes look brighter. You can't go wrong! Nov 8, 2013

Suzy K asked: what is the difference between the colour burgundy and plum? Feb 16, 2012
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
yvonne l: Hi!

Buy the burgundy!!! I had always bought the black in this great mascara, but wanted to try a color a couple of years ago. I originally wanted to buy the plum, but was advised by a cosmetic rep that I would be much happier with the burgundy and that it was really more purple. I was hesitant at first because it sounded weird and I didn't want reddish eyelashes!! But it wasn't red at all, in fact it was purple. Perhaps it has been misnamed!!
Go for the burgundy!
Feb 17, 2012
Reply to yvonne Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Suzy K: Thank you for your answer .
This is very clear, and helps me in my choice (I have dark brown eyes).
greetings Feb 17, 2012
joan r: burgundy is a better color because it is dramatic yet softer and sexy

plum is good some times at the outer edges it does make my eyes blue but it basically is harsh with a more tired look when used alone

burgundy can make my eye green, tourquiss or sky blue depanding what i am wearing with basically neutral shadow
Feb 16, 2012
Reply to joan Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Suzy K: I Have dark brown eyes and I understand from your answer that burgundy is warmer and plum is colder.
I have the eye shadow from 5 colour harmony (no 2) with brown roze and purple.
And that are warm colours.
So I hope the burgundy must be not too red.
gr Suzy Feb 16, 2012
M Kimberly M: I can't say based on actually seeing both next to each other. But, I do own the burgundy. It's a maroon type color; reddish-brown. Plum, I assume is purple. The burgundy looks great on my blue eyes, making them appear even bluer. Feb 16, 2012

I used to buy this mascara and it was very liquid first time I bought it, but each other time it was thick creamy and dried really soon...

Ellen D: I have dark - almost black - hair, and I bought this mascara in burgundy (#5). It shows up almost black on me, so I can wear it with any color eye makeup, but it's just a fun depth color you don't get with other mascaras.

Michelle S: Hi, I also have hazel eyes, dark hair. I LOVE #6. It is a very subtle, deep blue. It brightens the eyes. Also, I am currently using #5 in Singulair and am very pleased with this color as well. I have also used #5 (Burgundy) in Faux cils for an almost "natural" look.

dainese c: I have used both colors, I have brown hair and grn eyes and prefer the burgundy for the softer look, brown for the standard. Probably you would prefer the brown. Love the mascara, but it does dry out fairly quickly (as they all seem to) Definitely does not dry out the lashes/nor damage them at all. use a curler before (not after) applying and there would be no loss/damage from any eyelashes sticking to the curler. hope this helps!

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Carol T: It depends on what you like best. I am very fair and think black looks ghoulish on me. I usually wear brown. Ten years ago, actually it has been longer, I started wearing the purple mascara occasionally. It's not a bright purple, it's subtle and more intense than brown.
I also have blue eyes and I did not like myself in the blue mascara.

I don't know if it's the pigment or the way it looks, but the purple seems to make my eyelashes thicker than the brown. It's really a personal preference. I alternate between brown and purple. Don't go overboard with the purple by using a purple liner, I use brown.
Try it and see what you think. Carol

Susan K: Hi,
This mascara is not water-proof, but it does hold up well if you allow it to dry. I also found that using a mascara primer and letting THAT dry before putting the mascara on really helps.
I still think it's a great mascara and gives a nice look to your lashes. The color makes my green eyes pop, yet doesn't look garish on.

Amy B: If you are looking for a mascara to wear to the pool or beach, you are going to want something that is specifically advertised as a "waterproof" formula. I love this mascara, but I'm not sure it would hold up well if you're planning to go swimming. I usually wear this for really soft, thick, lush lashes - work or out on the weekend. It applies really nicely and smells good, too. I opt for a truly "waterproof" mascara if I'm planning to go swimming. Hope this helps! Apr 2, 2012

I received this product from influenster, just to try and provide feedback. At first I was extremely excited to try this out as I have heard wonderful things about YSL. The first couple of times I wore the mascara, it was amazing. It did everything it said it would. It was dark and creamy and went on smooth. But after maybe about the 6th time wearing it, it was becoming clumpy and not as smooth as it was the first few times. It was disappointing because it looked so great at first. I also love the smel !

Love the formula. Full coverage and definition but not heavy. Goes on great and washes of when it is time to come off.

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 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 got this complimentary from Influenster. And I was so happy! The funny thing is, I was already in the market looking for a good mascara, and this lovely thing came right in time. It makes my lashes look so full and long. I have gotten so many compliments on it. MY mom at one point thought I had fake eyelashes on because of how full my lashes looked. Once I'm done with the one I have now, I will MOST DEFINITELY purchase this mascara from now on.

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 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.

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.

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

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.

The YSL VOLUME EFFET FAUX CILS is a WONDERFUL mascara!!! The packaging is BEAUTIFUL! The mascara tube is a nice gold metallic color, nice weight, and gives the appearance of a higher quality product. The mascara brush is a nice length, easy to use, and the bristles allow for an even distribution of the mascara on the lashes. The color was a rich black and there was no offensive odor. The mascara formula is a good one that did make my lashes appear fuller and longer. The formula and application allowed for a wider eye look that was appealing. Overall, I am very happy with this mascara and would strongly recommend it as a go-to mascara for anyone! I did receive the YSL Volume Effet Faux Cils Mascara to test for free, but all opinions are my own. Go out and get your own YSL VOLUME EFFET FAUX CILS today! :)

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!

The Volume Effect Faux Cils mascara made my lashes pop, giving them the most volume I have ever achieved. The scent did not bother me, but is a tad strong. I did learn to prime my lids to avoid the smudging. Overall, this product delivers as promised. I tested the Faux Cils Mascara for free, but all opinions are my own.

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.

I was surprised at how much I loved this mascara! I was doubtful at first because the brush looked to be so small and compact but after using it a few time I LOVE this mascara! I have shirt stubby lashes and it really does lift them and give them the volume that I need!

I am incredibly impressed with this mascara. When I'm applying it I need to be careful not to look up because my lashes are so long the mascara will touch the skin above my eyelids! I wasn't blessed with particularly long or luscious lashes naturally so mascara has always been a daily requirement. This mascara leaves my lashes soft, deeply black, and achieves incredible volume and fullness. In addition to performing like no other mascara I have ever used, it smells amazing and has added B5 Pro-Vitamin to strengthen and protect lashes. Hopefully my lashes are getting stronger while looking fabulous. I received this product complementary from Influenster for testing purposes.
