Lashes look great and I like the brown color - esp nice for blondes.  LAshes are full and fluffy and the formula creates volume and length.  I have bought Faux Cils many times in various colors.  My only complaint is that the tubes dry out quickly and since they are kind of expensive, I do not buy regularly anymore.

This is hands down my FAVORITE mascara, ever.  It lengthens, volumizes and nourishes my lashes with the built in argan oil!!! I love this mascara because it doesn't smudge, it's so easy to apply and it doesn't get everywhere.  It's a little bit pricey, I know, but save up for it and splurge because it's worth it, I promise!

Hands down favourite mascara in the world, make my eyes pop and I usually just dink it once, a little goes a long way and leaves your eyes looking open and beautiful

Got this in my last voxbox. Pros: super lengthening, nice volume, and smells AMAZING. Seriously, best smelling mascara ever! Cons: wet formula (kind of messy), didn't hold curl, expensive (although I got it for free to test out). Overall, the effect it gave my lashes was absolutely beautiful, unfortunately that didn't last long. Within about 20 minutes all the curl in my lashes disappeared..which is a huge deal breaker for me because I have stick straight lashes. I still use this mascara, I just make sure to use a little waterproof mascara before applying this one so my curl stays. For $32 I would not purchase this product again. I do feel like you can find a cheaper drugstore alternative. But if you are feeling like splurging and you love lengthening mascaras, this isn't a bad one.

I received YSL Volume Effet Faux Cils Luxurious Mascara complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes. This is my first time using this brand and product. I have to say where have I been?! I love the packaging and metallic gold on the mascara tube. The mascara works great and doesn't have a strong smell. It does not smudge and dry super fast. #YSLMascara leaves my lashes looking longer and adds volume. I recommend this mascara to all. It's pricey like $30 but I guarantee you, you will like it. Thank you to #Influenster for sending me this #YSLVoxBox. #YSLMascara

I really enjoyed this as far as higher end mascara. My only gripe is it does dry out sort of fast. Unless you wear mascara daily then I'd recommend another choice.

I received this #yslmascara complimentary for review and on first use I thought it was great, I have very full and long lashes naturally and find it hard to find mascara that can separate, add volume and length without getting too clumpy or crazy looking. This did that all perfectly with long clean lashes. I did notice it is a rather"wet" mascara but then maybe I am comparing it to older bottles of mine - most do dry out pretty quickly. Is it worth the pricetag, I am not sure yet, I love some drugstore mascaras that do a pretty great job too. But there is definitely no crunch, no clumps and nice volume.

The one thing I instantly noticed about this mascara is that it doesn't leave your lashes hard and crusty like other mascaras do. It leaves them soft and bendable when its dry like your natural lashes. It claimed to have a false lash effect. It doesn't give volume to my lashes, but it does give length. Overall, good product but I don't think i would spend the money on it.

Volume Effect mascara is by far the best mascara I've ever used! It gives my lashes amazing volume and thickness. You can definitely see the results after applying it once. It also goes on very easily, with very few clumps, and a fabulous scent. The best part of this mascara has to be that it stays on throughout the day without leaving any smudges or flakes under the eyes!

I purchased this in waterproof at a department store (S). I love the smell of the mascara. I wear contacts on a daily basis and this mascara stays put. No smudges or raccoon looking eyes throughout the day (you'll gets raccoon eyes in the morning if you leave your mascara on while you sleep. Lol It's waterproof so it takes more makeup remover to remove it "COMPLETELY". 😑
Nonetheless, I still love the mascara. Both the Diorshow and ysl are my favorites.
