Rated 1 out of 5 by from Please bring burgundy back! Went searching specifically for this mascara in burgundy and couldn't find it anywhere. Came here hoping to find it. So sad they decided to discontinue it. The burgundy color was perfect! It's just brown enough that it looks natural, but still had enough of that wine color to enhance eye color. Violets/purples lean bluer and don't have the same effect as the burgundy. This is a good mascara, but the burgundy color being as phenomenal as it was, and unique to this brand, was the only reason I could justify purchasing it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from All time fav mascara but bring back burgundy This has been my go to mascara for 15 years, its the best and well worth the price tag. I couldn't believe they made a good thing even better when they introduced the burgundy color, it was THE BEST, it made my eye color so much more vivid without ever giving away the fact it was a colored mascara. I am SOO disappointed and frustrated that it was discontinued, but what really adds insult to injury for me is the fact that I purchased two of them from this site in December and there was absolutely no indication given that it was being discontinued. Had I known I would have seriously stocked up, now it is impossible to locate and the only places that you can find it are on eBay and amazon, where I am sure it's a knocked off product anyway. Please bring it back, and next time let people who have a record of purchasing through your site know when their product is being discontinued.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from BRING BACK BURGUNDY I have been using and LOVING the burgundy for the past couple of years, I am soo sad that it is gone. The violet isn’t the same and us much brighter and more noticeably pigmented. I loved that the burgundy made my green eyes really pop but nobody could tell I was wearing a colored mascara. Please please bring it back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Why did you have to change the formula? Both my daughters (one is 33 and one is 36) swear by this mascara, but have noticed a change in the formula. It clumps more when you try to wash it off and is hard to remove from under your eyes. They have both been using the mascara for over 5 years and refuse to purchace any other brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Eye Color Enhancing I am particularly in love with the shade Fascinating Violet. It's so universally flattering. It's a rich plum shade that looks just as natural as black or brown but the subtle hint of color boosts any eye color. I have light brown eyes and this shade really enhances the amber and golden flecks in them. You know how radiant your eyes look in the sunlight? This mascara makes them look that bright even in fluorescent lighting. I highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Volumizing Mascara, Fascinating Violet I've been using Volume Effet Faux Cils in Fascinating Violet and Brown longer than I can remember. The formula is non-irritating, enriches the appearance of my sparse short eye lashes and the colour Fascinating Violet highlights my hazel eyes beautifully. The wand applies ample mascara while separating lashes (I also use a Tweezerman lash separator to get a thoroughly natural look). Fascinating Violet is a beautiful purple, it's doesn't look like clown makeup but covers the lashes with color that accentuates your eye color and eyeshadow if you're wearing purples or browns. Volume Effet Faux Cils is an overall great mascara and Fascinating Violet is a fun versatile color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don’t ever discontinue this PLEASE! Best colored mascara in the market. Lush, rich, delicious formula with the best colors for an added boost to your eyes without the harshness of a black. Although black has it’s moments for sure. But the purple, blue, brown and my favorite, the burgundy. NOBODY has come even CLOSE to how perfect these are. Hands down the best.

Which mascara replaced the Vinyl Couture? 

Asked by: fltatt1
Well, I am not precisely sure which mascara would replace the vynil couture, but the volume fat efets cils,would definitely help you achieve that almost fake lashes look, that you would love for a more dramatic look. But also the choice for a more natural look if you just apply a light layer.

Asked by: TanjaN
I don' see why you couldn't use it. You may want to write to YSL customer service and ask them to send you a few dozen "tester" brushes...the disposable brushes used at cosmetic counters when customers try products. These tester brushes are also available at the YSL counters at department stores. If you go to Sephora, you will see a variety of different tester brushes for each brand. It's a great place to find a brush that works for you. Make sure you discard the tester brush after you have used it. They are one time use only!

The violine looks amazing -- what color is it actually? I have very dark brown eyes and am wondering which would be more flattering but not strange -- burgundy or violine (or something else)?
Asked by: Anonymous
For me the burgundy was a bit too red. I thought it made my eyes look like I had been in a fight. I don't think they had the violine back when I bought the colors. It looks like it has a grayer tinge to it. For me that seems to be more subtle. The used to have a jade, which had a greenish tinge. I really like that one. They don't have it any more.

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

Asked by: Anonymous
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!
