*review for the waterproof mascaraThis is probably one of THE greatest mascaras I've ever tried. The results are just incredible - volume, length, ability to curl - it's simply much much better than anything I've ever tried. I have Asian, medium-length lashes that are straight as a pole and must wear waterproof mascaras to hold their curl. The problem with most wp drugstore mascaras is that the formula is so incredibly dry and therefore you can't really build up layers to improve lash volume. So for the last year or so I've been faithful to Heroine Kiss Long & Curl, which is a Japanese mascara. YSL is different, though - the formula is creamy but it does not budge after it is set for good. It's got more volume than Long&Curl and separates extremely well to boot. It's genuinely my favorite mascara.What makes me sad is that the tube dries out in 1.5 months. Too bad, because this bad boy cost $30 per tube and for a college student that's just too much to spend on every time it dries out.

I'm using the WP version . Best mascara i have ever used making my lashes look full ,thick and must important it's really holds a curl.The only bad thing that i can think about that it's dries quickly and the formula becomes very thick after 1-1.5 month but it still worth it !

I am a mascara junkie, I wouldn't open a door to a Postman without a mascara. BUT with a good mascara that is. ;-) Two important products in my make-up bag, MASCARA & Foundation.This mascara is the most amazing I have ever used, not because I used it once or twice, its cause its my 5th or 6th in the last 3 years. Am always on the look out for new mascaras that would give Volume, Length & clump free lashes. However I always go back to YSL as I still have not found a better one to this mascara.Also I always have it as a back up mascara even if am using another brand, if I don't get the volume of another mascara, I top it up with this one and the results are MEGA SEXY LASHES. xxx

Bought this as a mini sample at Sephora. There is NO way I would spend close to $40 on ANY mascara. I have drugstore mascaras that hit this one out of the park. There is nothing special about this mascara besides the brand.I applied this mascara then had to apply a drugstore one over top of it. Payoff is very subtle...totally not worth the hype!

I bought the waterproof version of this mascara and I'm beyond impressed. It makes my lashes long and it separates and gives volume at the same time. I swam with this mascara and it didn't budge. This is an amazing mascara. Best summer mascara ever.

I love everything YSL makes and this mascara is no exception! I've tried many (drugstore and high end) mascaras and this seems to compliment my lashes very well. Let's be real here, mascara cannot give you what you don't have so there's only so much black paste and a brush can do. No clumps, not too wet that it weighs lashes down, gives length and volume without making your lashes look like three black spikes... That alone makes it a winner in my opinion.

I've used this mascara for the last 8 years and LOVED it. Recently, they changed the formula of YSL Mascara Volume Effect Faux Cils and it's horrible! I have long, straight lashes and use an eyelash curler before applying mascara. The new formula straightens my lashes even with a curler. The formula is wetter - and heavier than the original version and smears easily. Plus, it stinks! What's up with that?TO YSL PLEASE go back to the original formula! It's non irritating, no odor, keeps lashes curled and stays on throughout the day. It can get dried out but running the tube under hot water before using cures the flaking problem and eliminates the limp lashes caused by the new formula. I've spoken with many former devotees who are looking for a new brand. Please reconsider adding the "conditioning" oil to the formula - it's not very effective as a conditioner and fails miserably as a mascara.

I had heard about how good Yves Saint Laurent mascara's were, so I was very pleased when my mother surprised me by buying me one. So far I've been using this for nearly six months, and it's fantastic. It applies smoothly and easily, and it doesn't tend to clump like most mascaras do - there aren't any ugly/obvious mascara fibers littering my lashes. A little definitely goes a long way; it definitely isn't subtle on me, but it makes my lashes look longer and thicker than they already are. The only complain I have about this mascara is it's incredible lack of resistance to water. While I don't believe the product claims to be waterproof, it certainly comes off very easily, so I would recommend using a lash primer with it if you intend to go anywhere near moisture. Overall, it's a fantastic mascara; it's a little pricey but I think it's worth it and I will definitely be buying it again.

This product was a disappointment for me.My lashes are thin and my eyes are small and i want my lashes to look long and thick but this product is like from 70s.I think it is because of the brush shape.You should buy this if you only would like to define your lashes.Smell and packaging are great but that is all.

I have tried every mascara recommended by blogs or makeup pages, but none gave me volume,length and definition altogether. I have fair complexion and i have been looking for a mascara that gave my lashes volume but at the same time avoiding clumps. A friend introduced me the ysl faux cills, and since than i never found something resembling to it, since it is very pricy.the only con is that it dries out faster then the other mascaras i have tried(dior, lancome,chanel,l'oreal,clinique,clarins,helena rubinstein). other than the price, it is wonder in a tube.
