Yves Saint Laurent Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils, No. 01 High Density Black, 0.2 Ounce - REVIEW

  • My daughter got this and said to try it. I ordered and absolutely love it. You don’t have to curl your eyelashes and it adds so much volume.
  • LOVE LOVE LOVE! I feel like this makes my average lashes look incredible! 1 possibly 2 coats is all it takes.
  • I am a mascara junkie. I love mascara's. I have dark eyelashes so I don't really need mascara to darken, but my eyelashes are short so I love mascara that can lengthen without clumping and volumize without clumping. Faux Cils Mascara does just that!My prior beauty secret was to layer mascaras. I have found some that I love that do a fabulous job of lengthening but it makes my eyelashes look like little sticks, so then I will layer on a volume mascara on top of that one and get the effect that I like. But it takes 2-3 different mascaras to get there.Not with Faux Cils Mascara though. I can just use this one product and my eyelashes aren't stiff, aren't clumpy, but they are long, fanned out and have so much volume. I love the look that this mascara gives my lashes. It is very buildable and the smell is unlike any other mascara smell that I have come across. It smells fresh. I have been using this mascara everyday for the past week or so and it has been the only one I use. That is crazy for a mascara layering queen like myself.I am very, very pleased with Faux Cils Mascara.*disclaimer- I got a complimentary sample for testing purposes. I was not compensated for my honest review. All thoughts are my own.
  • I believe the eyes is very important part of perfecting that flawless look. The eyes the pathways to the soul, so if you're not wearing the perfect mascara - you look will fall flat.The first thing that caught my attention was the stylish gold tube. I'm new to the world of make-up, so I have tried over ten different brands trying to achieve that jaw-dropping look.Yves Saint Laurent (YSL) Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils is the best mascara out in the market today.Yves Saint Laurent Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils makes my lashes appear longer than what they are. There's no clumping, no smudging, and it's easy to remove. A definite must-have.I received this product complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.
  • This mascara gives you almost a FAKE LASHES look with your own lashes...Makes them much fuller lookingadn also longer. My daughter in law turned me own to this mascara and I love it!
  • I wasn't as impressed as my friend was with this mascara.For the price I would have expected more.It's good, but not great.
  • This product is AMAZING. Really does make your eyelashes go on forever. FIVE STARS ON PRODUCT QUALITY. When I first opened it I tough it was a joke... because the wand was so chunky. But as I kept dipping the wand and applying my eyelashes grew super long. It does flake off a little by the end of the night or if I sleep with it on. But overall I'm really really impressed. I just wish it wasn't so crazy expensive!!! FOUR STARS ON PRICE. But will I buy it again...? Probably. I'll save it for special occasions.
  • I've been a faithful (and satisfied) user of basic drug store brands in the past. But, with my change in eyesight, and an increasing chemical sensitivity over the years, I'd dropped using mascara since I couldn't really see what I was doing (putting on the stuff was very difficult and very time consuming, no matter which type of mirror, magnifying glasses, or lighting I tried0. A comment in some magazine article made this one worth a try, although it's well over my usual price category.WOW - using this (applying and wearing) is so wonderful that I now rarely leave the house without putting this on. I've used mascara more one days since buying this than I have in the previous 12 months.I think part of the reason is the length and heft of the wand. It is much longer than what I've used, and the balance makes it very maneuverable.The formula also works for me. It's not water proof, but so far it has great staying power, much better than my previous experience with not-waterproof mascara. (The humid days of summer will be the next test.) It goes on very well --- so well I had to re-learn how to apply -- one sweep of the wand is sufficient --- more than that is too heavy.I have a decent amount of lashes which are plenty long, but they are nearly invisible despite my dark hair coloring.
  • I am really picky about mascara, but so far I really like this one. Goes on thick and has no strong odor. Lasts all day and doesn’t smudge.
  • Goes on nice and doesn't look all clumpy and does not run on my face
  • Got it for my wife as surprise. You should too, you did that thing. She’ll forget about the thing, just like mine, and she’ll keep batting her eyelashes at you. Win win.
  • love this mascara.It goes on easily, really defines the lashes.Much better than any other I have tried and I've tried many.
  • After reading great reviews from makeup artists and others, I decided to give this mascara a try. I love it. It lengthens and thickens lashes beautifully.
  • First, let me just say that I received this product complementary for testing and review purposes from Influenster.I have tried many different types of mascaras, both high end and drug store, some I love, while others I will use once and never again...This mascara is very very good!It does a good job adding volume and is very lengthening as well.A single coat does the job, however, you can always layer for added drama.The new formula is loaded with vitamins and actually feels good on.There is a slight fragrance to it, however, I find it to be very pleasant.The fragrance may be a consideration for others with extremely sensitive eyes.I will have to say that it didn't bother mine at all.The mascara holds up very well and doesn't smudge or flake for at least 8 hours.After 8 hours I did notice it transfer below my eyes.I didn't dock any points for this because to be quite honest I tried this in the regular formula where I normally wear waterproof.I am a student and also work so my days are extra long.I have not found a regular formula mascara that does not transfer after several hours.This one holds up better than most in my opinion.In my opinion this formula is a hit and have no problem recommending it to others to try.Just beware of the fragrance for people with extra sensitive eyes.
  • I recently received this product to try with Influenster's VoxBox and I love this stuff! It does not clump and looks great!
  • I’ve been buying my mascara at the pharmacy lately because it’s more convenient with everything closed down. After mascaras that are wet, clumpy, and smear before the day’s half over, I’m in love with a quality mascara like this one. I can never go back to cheap again. There truly is a difference. This mascara goes on perfectly, not to wet and not too dry. It doesn’t smudge and it comes off easily at night. It doesn’t clump by eye lashes together and I can put on multiple coats. It’s the little things in life that get me excited in 2020.
  • Love the mascara. I have straight sparse lashes.This mascara thickened and lifted my lashes beautifully.I just wish it cost less.I will only use on special occasions.
  • I’ve tried evey mascara out there. I’m on tv and will not use anything else. My lashes look huge with this. With other mascara my lashes look tiny. I don’t care how much this costs, I will always come back to it.
  • One of my favorite maskaras , use it for many years now .. My lashes are naturally long and curly so I don’t have to stress about the best volume or anything like that , what I like here is how light this maskara is and I don’t feel like my lashes glued together . And also loved the fact that I don’t have to go to the store now and I guess buying online saves me couple dollars ..
