Rated 2 out of 5 by from Basic mascara This mascara is your typical, everyday mascara. It gives you just enough length and volume and curl to suffice, but it isn't anything that amazing to really shell out the money for it. It's just a basic mascara really.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only mascara I ever use! I have used this mascara for many years. It is the only one I will use. I'm super picky when it comes to mascara and this one is perfect for me. Never sticky, never clumps. It feels soft on my lashes and lasts all day. I love the violet, but will use any color. Please never discontinue this mascara!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Holy Grail Mascara! I’ve been using this mascara for over 8 years and cannot love without it! I always try to purchase the duo packs at Duty Free. It makes my lashes long and full. I don’t need false lashes when using this. Highly recommend and no other mascara has taken its place until now!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Brilliant Packaging, Poor Performance I purchased Yves Saint Laurent Mascara in Burgundy 5. I wanted to try a mascara in a different color, and loved the color burgundy of this particular mascara online. While I found the the packaging beautiful and the formula thick and buttery, I didn't like this mascara overall. Pros: YSL delivers on luxurious packaging. I appreciated the click and the line up of the logo when I screwed the top back onto the tube. The formula is buttery and thick and is quite easy to apply. It doesn't smudge and stays on the lashes without much fallout (I put it on my lower lashes as well to see how it would hold up, and it performed well.) Cons: My biggest complaint is the brush. It feels too stiff and makes mascara application difficult in that it doesn't let my eye lashes sink into the brush. Thus, it felt like I was gliding the brush over the lashes, rather than brushing through them. The color burgundy appears brighter online than it is in person. I would love for it to have more red, and it looked like the color had more dark blue in it thus making it almost unnoticeable on the lashes. And finally, I had the mascara on for 6 or 8 hours, and I couldn't wait to take it off. The formula didn't cause any serious irritation but my eyes felt "tired" or a little itchy after several hours of wearing it. Overall, I was disappointed in YSL mascara. For $32, I want to love everything about the product, not just the packaging. For reference: My eye color is blue, I have long sparse lashes that don't need to be curled. Mascaras that I enjoyed in the past: Le Volume De Chanel (amazing performance), Givenchy Phenomen'Eyes (love the brush), and my all-time favorite Lancome Definicils (love everything). I wish these brands came up with some awesome colors while keeping the same brushes and formulas!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I want to love YSL mascara sooo bad BUT I Can’T! I love YSL! And I wanted to love this mascara sooo bad but it flakes horribly after only a couple of hours. Cheaper mascaras would hold for over 12h and wouldn’t make me look like a raccoon. I love presentation,service,everything about YSL! Unfortunately, I’m not going to purchase it again. This is how my eyes looked after 3h of wearing it. Flakes of mascara were all over my face.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from HANDS DOWN THE BEST, BEST EVER MASCARA I love trying out new mascaras, and typically use two different types at once. I apply a base coat, then add the "knockout" layer....which is YSL Faux Cils. No other mascara can compare to the depth of color, lengthening, volumizing or intensity. I LOVE this and the best part.....it HOLDS a curl!!! Thank you YSL for making the best mascara ever!
Date published: 2018-11-20
Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST Mascara EVER!!! Honestly, this is the best Mascara I have ever used. I don't have a lot of lashes but this makes them look so long, full and amazing. Will not use anyhting else. Just try it and you will know what I am talking about.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lifts and sets quickly I like this one best among other ysl mascaras. It lifts lashes and sets. My lashes look thicker and lifed, fanned out all day. Smudging a little bit. I can handle. I like Lancom hypnosis drama black and this one in burgundy. I heard from the store that burgundy color will discontinue so stacked up 3. My dark brown eyes look brighter and my whole makeup look looks so fresh and pretty. It's not too crazy color, try. It's great everyday color too.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bummed Out I have been using this mascara for year and loved it. However, I purchased a new tube about 3 months ago and it is not the same. When pulling the brush out it has clumps on it, applying the clumps transfer to my lashes and during the day my eyes get irritated from the mascara flaking off! I look in the mirror and I have little black flakes all around my eyes. I am getting married in a month and not I have t find a new mascara which will not flake on me. I am not sure what happened to the formula but I missed the original I fell in love with! Don't get me wrong I would still recommend YSL beauty product; just bummed out product is no longer the same.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great consistency and dark color I bought this a while ago; i love how dark my lashes get with the high density black color, as well how full make my lashes look, i have naturally very long lashes and the brush makes it easy to use and apply; a great product to add to my YSL collection

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing. Really wanted to love it. I love YSL with the Touch Eclat and lipsticks among my makeup bag staples. I've been looking around for a volumising lengthening mascara . I really hoped this would be as amazing as their other products but its disappointing at best. No matter how I try apply it I end up with clumped eyelashes- like there's only 6 to each eye. On the plus side, the formula does hold, only it's not the fluttery false lash effect I'd expected.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Perfumey scent stings, thick formula clumps lashes The green color is wonderful. However, the mascara is so perfumed that it burns my eyes. Also, it’s so thick that it clumps the lashes together. Maybe it’s just a problem with the brush? But it’s so thick that it’s like applying Nutella on my eyelashes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Violine Tenebreuse: my favorite I have been buying this color in Volume Effet Faux Cils through YSL for the past few years, because I haven't been able to find it in stores that carry the rest of the colors. This is the most wearable shade in the collection for me: very subtle hint of violet in a smoky base that works so well with my blue-green eyes. I think this would be beautiful on eyes of any color. I love to wear it with grey eyeshadow and liner. YSL, please don't discontinue this shade!

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 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!

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

It depends on what you like best. I am very fair and think black looks ghoulish on me. I usually wear brown.

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!
