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.

Effect is amazing BUT dries out so quickly it's not worth the price tag.

Probably one of the worst mascaras I have ever used. You have to use a lot of product for it to look good, and even so my lashes look clumpy and unevenly separated. I doesn't hold the curl either and worst of all, it's flakey and after a few hours of wear I have a serious case of Raccoon eyes. Which I find kind of weird as it's almost impossible to wash off in the evening, and it's not even the waterproof one. I have to use two face wipes, make up remover, soap, a face cleanser + a toner to remove it, and even still when I wake up the next stay I still have smudges from this damn mascara under my eyes. It. drives. me. crazy.

It's unfortunate because I love the packaging, it beautiful and luxurious, and it's probably the most expensive mascara I have ever bought. I'm disappointed because I know so many people who absolutely love the YSL mascaras and I was so excited. I'm probably not gonna buy another YSL mascara for a while (or ever). I'll stick to my Benefit They're Real, Max factor False lash effect or the Lancome Hypnose mascaras in the future.

This mascara does absolutely nothing for my lashes. It doesn't lengthen or add volume at all and my lashes are naturally long so I was looking for a mascara that made them even longer and separated them - this didn't do that at all. Total waste of money. Plus it kept smudging throughout the day and I would end up with black mascara marks under my eyes which I would constantly have to wipe off. Not a fan.

I got the waterproof version but it still smudges half day through. It does hold up curls and lengthen but doesn't give any volume.

This mascara is not good. It doesn't lengthen at all, it flakes, and it does add volume but looks clumpy. So you get short, clumpy lashes.

I bought the burgundy colour and it smudges so I have racoon eyes in a burgundy shade that makes me look ill.

I have used drugstore mascaras better than this - save your $$.
