A mascara that achieves high volume and a dramatic false lash effect.

This non-drying formula is enriched with B5 pro-vitamin, which deepens, darkens, and leaves lashes look instantly thicker. The nylon fiber brush builds luscious volume, coating lashes from root to tip for a bold false-lash look.

How To Apply:

Start applying at the root of the lash on the outside of the eye. Apply the brush to the lash, pushing upwards and outwards at the same time with a zig-zag motion so that it separates the lashes while applying the mascara. On the inner lashes and the bottom lashes, use just the tip of the brush and apply to Individual lashes.

  • "I am absolutely in love with the Yves Saint Laurent Master Volume Effet Faux Cils mascara! It's volumizing, nourishing, doesn't dry or crumble on my lashes, and smells heavenly! Or course the packaging is sleek and beautiful as well. I am so glad Influenster sent it to me to try out, thank you!" in 90 reviews
  • "I received this product complimentary to test and review. To start, I feel this product is volumizing AND lengthening. I am so pleased with it, words cannot describe! Once you open the tube, the aroma of what smells like rose water fills the air, gosh, so good. I am always apprehensive with mascaras and expect clumping to occur. With this, I put on several layers and have NO issues with clumping up! My lashes are easily separated when I comb them out and they fan out beautifully. I am such a fan. Once this tube runs out I will be buying another! I find this formula is best used on curled lashes. It lasted all day, and didn't flake one bit, also.. smudging was a total non-issue (WIN WIN WIN)" in 23 reviews
  • "I received the YSLVoxbox and couldn't be happier. This stuff is seriously amazing. It doesn't get gross and clumpy. It slides on smoothly and obtains a layered look very naturally. My eye lashes look thicker and DON'T look caked in mascara. A must buy!" in 14 reviews
  • "Legit, this is the best & nicest mascara that has ever graced my lashes in my life. Mascara typically smells bad (to me) but this one smells like ROSES. Not even lying - I kept smelling it (and my normal mascaras) just to be sure. The brush is straight and one coat goes a long way. I didn’t even have to dip my brush twice to get both eyes covered. It went on so smooth, gave my lashes nice volume without clumps and curl without using a curler. When I touched my lashes it didn’t even feel like I had mascara on. In the past I have had issues with mascara coming off by the end of the day or flaking but this one stayed on all day with no issues. It almost wears like a waterproof but didn’t need a lot of rubbing to come off at the end of the day. " in 12 reviews
  • "Glad that with multiple coats no clumps! Having very thin eyelashes and always seeking for a better volumizing mascara I have to say I'm in love!! Thank you @Influenster Such a happy customer right now." in 10 reviews

Absolutely love YSL beauty and i tried to like this mascara but it just didn’t cut it for me. Didn’t lengthen my lashes or gave my volume or curls. Pretty much just coated them. AND the most disappointing part is that it smudges, by the end of the day i look like a panda!

Le produit a l interieur est bien ..bien noir qui donne du volume mais la brosse est catastrophique tous vos cils vont devenir 1 ... je sais pas comment decrire mais vous vous trouvez dans une situation catastrophique ou vous devez utilisez une autre brosse pour essayer d eviter le collage des cils

Like other reviewers said, this mascara is way too thick and clumpy. Too much mascara comes out on the wand and even after trying to get some of the excess off the wand, my eyelashes are heavily-coated and stuck together. Throughout the day, it flakes off and makes my eyes feel dry and itchy. Very disappointed and I really wish I hadn't spent the money on this.

I wish I can give more stars to this mascara, bcs i was really happy to buy it, but when I started using it I found that it was a very simple mascara, it was not extraordinary or super, and by time it was going dry, and I really hate the mascara that dries so fast, I just thrown it away, and I started using grandiose by lancome

This was my first mascara. I have curly eyelashes and this mascara did not change the way it looked. I applied 2 coats and still did not see a difference. It was so sad that I spent money on something that didn’t effect me :c

I thought when I bought this that it wouldn't clump up the lashes but it did however the package was lovely and the pot was really pretty it looked quite shiny but it got scratched quite easily! I wouldn't recommend it!

I love mascara and I'm not sure if mine was super old when i purchased it because after almost one week of using it it dried up completely ! the formula other wise was great and really lengthened my lashes. I haven't purchased another one.. might do in the future.

I really wanted to fall in love with this mascara but I couldn't. For such a high price tag, I hope for effects I cannot achieve with a more moderately priced mascara and this mascara did not live up to that hope. It did not add volume or much length to my lashes. Instead, it looked like my lashes with color on them. They also clumped together terribly, even after wiping the wand multiple times. The worse part, though, was how the product would crumble and leave fall out on my cheeks throughout the day.... I am really let down.

I know this is a cult favorite, and works for a lot of people. But it just doesn't do it for me. I have fairly thick lashes with a decent natural curl. It adds a little bit of length and no volume. For a mascara that has "false lashes" on the tube, it's a complete let down. It smudged throughout the day. The colour was good. For the price, I expect much more.

Is the mascara scented? Because I smelled a nice scent, unless it is just me imagining things :)
