Rated 2 out of 5 by from Old formula was my Holy Grail - new one's a fail I swore by the old formula of this mascara; it volumized, lengthened, and separated perfectly without clumping or smudging. People were constantly asking me whether my lashes were real, and always wanted to know what mascara I used to achieve that effect. I recommended it to several friends. Even though it's one of the pricier mascaras on the market, I felt it was worth the investment and never let myself run out of it - a beauty staple. Unfortunately the new formula just doesn't come close. It's now just OK: similar results as many other mascaras out there, including much lower-cost options. It seems to smear and smudge more, and doesn't lengthen or volumize nearly as well. I also see the advice given to others to add a primer...but why should I pay twice as much to get the same effect as I previously achieved with one product? I'm sorry, but that seems like a scam. Why mess with a formula that works so well for so many? It seems like I'm not the only longtime customer who is super disappointed with this decision. I am in product development myself; I can only hope there was some regulatory issue that forced this formula change, because otherwise it makes no sense. After over 15 years of using this product, I'm very sad that I have to resume my search for the perfect mascara. :,(

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lashes to Die For Most companies do not GET IT WHEN IT COMES TO MASCARA THIS IS THE FINEST IN THE WORLD. First off the brush is perfect size very very thick bristles and it gets every last. I love the brown it’s wet not dry and buildable. People ask are my lashes false but of course not they are YSL BROWN GORGEOUS BROWN PERFECT FOR MY AFE 62 although I look maybe 43 natural and it’s just amazing one try and you will never use any other mascara conditioning and easy off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Burgundy and purple are THE BEST wow I am SO happy the burgundy color has been brought back- couldn’t find it for a while and I was so upset! The burgundy and purple colors are absolutely gorgeous and really make my green eyes pop. I love that the color is noticeable enough yet is still wearable for daily use. I can wear these shades to work and still look professional. In addition to the amazing color, the mascara itself is one of my favorite formulas. It gives my lashes a super natural and buildable length and thickness. And of course the packaging is just so luxurious and looks amazing sitting in your makeup collection. I hope these two colors are never discontinued- they are the BEST purple shade mascaras on the market!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This should NOT be discontinued This mascara in Ultra Violet has been the only mascara I’ve worn for years. There are no other brands who make a mascara this vibrant. But guess I’ll have to find another one since it’s being discontinued and none of the other YSL mascaras are offered in this shade.

It works extremely well and worth the price. The mascara lengthens and adds volume to my natural lashes. Definitely recommend for those that doesn’t have the time nor the funds to get lashes done every month, this is a great alternative....PERIOD!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Please never discontinue this brown mascara There are so few companies making an excellent brown mascara, it makes this one all the more valuable. I hope it’s never discontinued, it makes my lashes long and thick, the brown is so rich - I’m a natural blonde with brown eyes and this is my best lash look, especially in summer when black looks very harsh.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE this mascara! I purchased this mascara after watching a tutorial video where the makeup artist used this mascara. I absolutely love this mascara. I have been using it for the past 5 days and I have no complaints. I have sensitive eyes and this mascara does not make them burn/water like other brands do. I had been wearing the mascara for 5 hours when I took the pictures attached to this review...no smudges. I did not touch up my makeup before taking the pictures and did not use a filter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite mascare EVER! I have been using this mascara for several years now. I was purchasing it Sephora but the last time I needed it, it was not available so I went straight to YSL. I absolutely love this mascara, the color, the lengthening effect and the fact that its NOT waterproof. It easily comes off with water so I don't have to stress the skin around my eyes. I pray YSL continues to make this mascara. Purple rules!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The eyes have it. I loved the original formula of this mascara and I did not think it could be improved, but I was wrong this mascara does not flake or migrate and has staying power. It’s not hard to remove and it does not make your lashes hard. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This is not a good new formula I used this mascara in burgundy for years, it looked and felt great, also it did help my lashes to look healthy and longer somehow. This new formula makes my lashes look like fake cartoon lashes and clumps. It looks ridiculous as before was so elegant. I also buy the matching eye pencil so is there another product that would be more like the old formula? Why change something great? Just make a new product to try out and don’t ruin regular customers beauty routine!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The only mascara you'll ever need! Firstly, the packaging - as always, it's classy. The gold and silver - I'm proud to have it in my makeup bag (together with my other beautiful YSL products) This mascara is great for every day use- one coat is plenty for daytime. It separates my lashes perfectly with no clogging. It feels like it's good for my lashes - must be the argan oil! Easy to remove too! Two coats for evening wear make my lashes look lush! Lashes still separated beautifully with a more dramatic look. Thoroughly recommend this product - worth every penny! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

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. 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. Try it and see what you think. Carol

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!
