Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not a big deal I tried the mascara and the conditioner but they are both average. Nothing special about this product, my lashes are pretty long so I expected a lot more from YSL. They have much better mascaras out there. For now I'll stick to THRIVE mascara which actually accentuates my lashes and makes them look extra long and curled

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my lashes I love this product....I have long lashes but this mascara plumps them up and helps to show them off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best blue mascara's this mascara was a discovery that i still rave about years later. I have tried so many blue mascara's over the years as this is my daily signature mascara ( i barely have any black in my make up drawer. This blue mascara is stunning, separates lashes really well, no clumping and gives volume without looking too much, it has a perfect texture, not too thin or too thick, the brush is really good and the mascara is not drying easily even with months of use, does not fall off on my face, i can remove it easy with eye make up remover without causing staining. It is a must have!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best mascara I have ever used ! I was introduced to this product a couple of years ago ( just a sample in advent calendar ) and I loved it ! This mascara has light texture , yet it makes your eyelashes look fuller and longer . It says on very well . Also , it doesn’t dry out as fast as the other ones I have previously used . Great product !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Separates, doesn't clump and adds drama I love this mascara and find it's unique to any other mascara out there. It separates and lifts each lash with out clumping. It's probably not the top mascara for thickening, but because it lifts each lash there is a still a dramatic effect without looking like you have tons of mascara on. It's buildable so can be natural or perfect for a full smokey eye look.

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.

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!
