Benefits

Achieve the luxurious look of false lashes. The best gets even better, the original false lash effect mascara, now with an all-new Lash Care formula.

Type

Mascara

What it is

A mascara that achieves high volume and a dramatic false lash effect.

What it does

This non-drying formula is enriched with B5 pro-vitamin, which deepens, darkens, and leaves lashes look instantly thicker. The nylon fiber brush builds luscious volume, coating lashes from root to tip for a bold false-lash look.

Start applying at the root of the lash on the outside of the eye. Apply the brush to the lash, pushing upwards and outwards at the same time with a zig-zag motion so that it separates the lashes while applying the mascara. On the inner lashes and the bottom lashes, use just the tip of the brush and apply to Individual lashes.

Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 1020.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from really good product Bought both the violet and the dark blue. the wands are different with both colors- the blue does get a bit clumpy right away but the violet does not. I also have a turquoise water-proof that is wonderful and does not clump. Must be something with either the brush or the blue dye. no matter- I love these colors and the product.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good quality I bought the blue color mascara. Nice results. Gives lashes a trendy bright tone but not too bold. You can wear at the office without being too bold

Rated 1 out of 5 by from New black mascara Have been using this mascara for over 10 years. New one now makes my eyes sting after about 2 weeks of wearing and I have to go make up free for a while. Real shame. Don't know what they have added to the ingredients but it's not good. Would love the old ones back.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Painful for eyes and lashes I bought this with a gift set and initially really liked it but as I used it I realised it was drying out my lashes and the skin above my eyelids closest to the root of my lashes making it scaly this also caused pain on the eyelash roots I don't recommend this product. but the eyeliner I also got in the set is amazing love it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Can we go back to original formula? I have been using this mascara for around 15 years. At the start it was amazing. It would dry out within 1.5 months, however for those 1.5 months, it was perfect effect, zero smudging, zero sting, zero watery eyes. Over the years it has changed, no doubt in an effort to improve it. Yet it is now the worse it has been: by mid day, all the colour is under my eyes! I also get watery eyes, something that never used to happen. It is in fact so bad that i wait until i am in the office to out it on. If i wear it at home and then walk to the tube, the air and the mascara together cause agony. i hope YSL finds this helpful. I remember when 'radical black' first came out, i run to try it, but the forumla was terrible: the colour would bleed and i used to get the worse smudge. I never bought 'black radical' again, but the classic 'black' is now (almost) as bad as that original 'radical black'. In a nutshell, i would rather pay for an amazing product that lasts for a shoret period, than have a product that does not dry, but does not serve its purpose.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very disappointed I have loved this mascara for well over 10 years but I have started to notice it doesn't last no where near as long as it use too. It feels like we are getting a lot less of the mascara and it goes thick and clumpy a lot quicker. Please YSL go back to the original mascara that we loved.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 63 yr old Eyelashes I am 63 yrs old. I use eyelash serum, Eye lash curling iron, foundation and then Your mascara. I am very pleased. At my Age I noticed last years I no longer had full or long lashes. With this regiment they have gotten noticed by friends And strangers. I researched your product Before I bought it. The only criticism is That mine has clumped. The hot curler Gets rid of it but I had read it doesn't clump That aside, with your mascara, they almost look like false lashes. Thx for that. I would send u a picture but my phone is having issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best! And I've tried MANY! I always think that this product is too expensive and try other mascara's. But I ALWAYS come back to this one. Nothing works as well. When I think of all the money I have wasted on other products that didn't even come close to comparing, I really am saving money by buying this product. It makes me happy and I love it! Don't buy this product on Amazon or some other place, it isn't the same, I tired it. Get the original and you will not be disappointed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best mascara ever I have been buying this mascara for a few years and the result is always stunning. Thanks to the development team who works on constant improvement of the mascara formula, it is hard to imagine that it could get better. I have experimented with different mascaras brands but they do not get even close to the same effect and quality. The nice touch is that you receive complimentary free delivery and luxurious free samples. Thank you YSL and long may you continue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from There isn't a better mascara out there I have tried dozens and dozens... This has always been and will always be my favorite and my go-to. The look is gorgeous, it lasts and lasts (admittedly, I've slept in it multiple times and it stays put every time without fail!) and it doesn't irritate my eyes or contact lenses the way many other volumizing mascaras do. I order my next one when I'm only halfway through the one I have because I am paranoid about running out of it. Love love love. Absolutely don't look further - this is the best there is!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Natural and Full I was able to try this mascara for free compliments of Influenster in exchange for my opinions and review. I'm not one who wears or has worn mascara a lot. I honestly just started to more within the last two years. This is a quality mascara and worth the price. I will buy this again, once this tube runs out. I love that I can put more than one coat on without it clumping, or feeling heavy. This is a very lightweight mascara. This isn't very "eye-popping" if that's what you're looking for, but if you want a natural and full look, then look no further! I love that this doesn't have a harsh chemical smell too! It makes me feel better about putting this on my lashes. Not to mention that it comes in a stylish tube too! This is definitely a quality mascara and worth the investmet. Bye bye drug store mascara, hello YSL! :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from the best packaging I loved everything about this mascara! The packaging looks and feels so luxurious. I got mine in the shade high density black and was impressed by the awesome pigmentation. I want to try a few of the other shades now. I love this formula for building up volume at the base and then bringing a little up for length. The smell was so good, I've never tried a mascara that smelled good before! It was easy to take off at the end of the day with a bit of coconut oil as well. I received the product for free but my opinions are honest and my own.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! I'll be the first to admit that I'm super picky about my mascara. this is the first mascara I've ever used by YSL so I was pretty excited that Influenster and YSL sent me a sample to try for free. The best part of getting to try this is how amazing it actually is! It's an extremely smooth formula and the pigment is super dark. It makes my blue eyes really pop. It lengthens and separates and also smells great. Kind of like roses. Looking forward to seeing if this comes in a waterproof version!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The original best! YSL Faux Cills mascara is the best! It gave amazing definition, volume and length to my lashes! It's very easy to use, had a nice size and shape brush, and it smells wonderful! It also goes on very smoothly, doesn't leave any lashes out, and feels great on all day! I totally recommend it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love! I recieved this to try from Influenster and I have to admit, I'm in love. It glides on so smooth on my lashes which I have never experienced before, literally it's so smooth. It lasts for so long, and the quality is amazing. It doesn't bleed and it keeps my lashes looking healthy even after I remove it. There is no clumping and it adds volume. I have tried it a total of 3 times and I am sure I will repurchase!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty great! I received this mascara to test free from influenster and was thrilled to be chosen. I put this mascara through the ringer and wore it everyday for a month before I posted this review. Overall, this is a great mascara. It doesn't clump, doesn't dry out, and smells great (odd but true!). It was interesting that while I layered this product one, it left my lashes incredibly soft! I've tried my fair share of designer mascaras and haven't encountered that quality before. It was quite refreshing! While it provides great length, I wish it gave my lashes more volume, which is why I removed a star.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from In Love! I received this mascara in high intensity black as a free sample to test from Influenster. All opinions are my own. The packaging and the tube are gorgeous!

There was no clumping and it went on very smoothly. It also had longevity that I like.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I like it, but I probably wouldn't pay for it. I like this mascara a lot, but it's pretty pricy. I got a tube of this for free to try out and review through Influenster. I do like the way it fills my lashes. Although, I feel my lashes look the same as they did with my normal revlon mascara. I really like it, I just wouldn't have paid the price for it on my own. But if that's your thing, then I definitely recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Mascara! I received my YSL mascara complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes. I have come to love YSL, but I was a little hesitant because a while ago I had purchased another high end mascara that left me extremely disappointed. I was pleasantly surprised when I received this one from YSL. The Volume Effet Faux Cils has a nice thick formula that coats each lash beautifully and makes them look thick. I like that the formula does not get clumpy or sticky. I was also very happy that it did not react with my contacts (like other mascaras have done in the past). I definitely recommend this mascara to everyone. Although I received this mascara complimentary, my review is my own opinion.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Everyday falsies look minus the fake lashes When I first received the YSL VoxBox I was so excited. As soon as I got it, I unboxed it and tried it on. My first thoughts were that the tube of mascara had a very sleek, sophisticated look to it unlike the plastic, colorful look that most drugstore brand mascaras had. When I first took a look at the mascara wand I was excited because the brush is very full and the bristles soft. Very noticeable was the great smell that the formula had. As I put it on, I could quickly see a difference. My nearly non-existent lashes began to appear voluminous and almost like I was wearing falsies. This is definitely a great alternative to having to put on fake lashes every day. The mascara lasted all day without any touch ups and at the end of the day removed very easily with makeup remover wipes. The only thing that I found was not my favorite was the mascara wand. I think because the bristles are so soft that they don’t define and separate lashes, but instead at times makes your lashes clump together giving you a spider lash look – which isn’t my favorite. Overall a great product. I tested the Faux Cils Mascara for free, but all opinions are my own.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love to the Lashes I must admit that I am a beauty junkie and am always on the look out for a new product to try or the latest trend. When I first tried the VOLUME EFFET FAUX CILS mascara I was definitely impressed. My lashes got a ton of volume and I really liked the formula of the mascara. Additionally the mascara had a great staying power and lasted all day without smudging or flaking off. I would recommend this product to any beauty lover! * I tested the Faux Cils Mascara for free, but all opinions are my own.*

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing I absolutely love this mascara. The brush is phenomenal. It is not rubber which I like. The formula is thick and coats my lashes beautifully. This mascara also has a great scent. Something that I have not found in any other mascara. I received this mascara free from influenster for testing purposes.

Hi, please let me know what is the original thickness of this mascara (when mascara is totally fresh)? 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... So I would like to know how it should be... liquid like juice or liquid like syrup or something else. thank you

Volume comes from the thicker than normal mascara consistency. Should not clump or feel dry when applying; in which case I would return.

I am in LOVE with this mascara! I received it in my Influenster Voxbox and took it with me to a seminar I was going to for a week. I figured it was a perfect way to truly test it since I had to do my makeup every day and wear it from 9am to 9pm. Let me just say that I was impressed. It did NOT disappoint. It lasted the entire day without clumping, drying, fading, irritating, smudging or anything of the sort. It moisturized, stayed soft, and looked fresh the entire time. I also cried...as I normally do in these type events and it did not smear. I also loved the scent. As I was putting it on, because of the scent, I forgot it was mascara. Mascara doesn't normally have a pleasant scent. This product will definitely be on my everyday makeup MUST. Thank you YSL and Influenster for the opportunity to try it. Sharon Vazquez, Miami

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. But, you should definitely give the dark blues a try. I rarely wear black mascara anymore!
