Old faithful, I guess. I have tried soooo many mascaras trying to find perfection, like you, I suppose. I always go back to this one because it is the closest to perfect I've found yet...why I like it: gorgeous colors, the number 5 is stunning on green eyes. It lengthens and thickens and I control this with the applications. So I can do natural or glamorous with one product. It does not clump as I apply more ( unless tube is getting old) to the point of needing to separate lashes before I let them dry...so this is a time saver. It absolutely does not flake, again unless the product is getting old. But it does smudge. Not always, depending on your skin and makeup oiliness, heat and humidity. I use Clarins sealer after and this prevents the smudges. I read another reviewer who complained of YSL possibly changing the formula...I experienced this too for a few tubes in a row over about a year...very watery and very very smudgy...so very very irritating.so I went shopping...I think she was right, I thought that too. But after going back to YSL last year, the formula seems to be good again. In my YSL rebellion I tried Tarte lights camera flashes, Mac, Dr Hauschka, Glominerals, Clinique chubby lash, LancĂ´me defincils, wonder2, Too faced better than sex and some fiber building extension mascara that I can't remember the name of, that not only coated my lashes but dusted my cheeks and filled my eyes with tiny fibers too..and probably more brands too. I went crawling back to YSL. I almost tried The Shock from ysl, but didn't as my trusted girls at Marrianaud said it's just not better than the fauxcils. Of all the ones above that I tried...natural lovers will love Dr Hauschka...it just wasn't voluminous enough for me. Hope this helps!

I wanted to wait a few weeks before I review this because I know that new tubes of mascara tend to be a bit thin when you first buy them. I find the wand in this mascara a bit too long (difficult to manoeuvre, I keep hitting my eyelid instead of my lashes) and the brush needs a wider brush barrel to give me more curls, but the mascara itself is really great. It's darkly pigmented, thick and coats your lashes right away. This mascara builds quite nicely without any clumping, I can get about 4 coats in without my lashes sticking together. I purchased this because I wanted a smudge proof/waterproof mascara, and this consistently comes up in top 10 lists for that, and I can attest that it's almost impossible to get this off at night, so it's doing a great job of staying put.

Clumpy McClumpclumptastic :( Nice packaging and the wand is exactly what I like but WAY TOO MUCH product. I'm too low maintenance to deal with scraping product off first or wiping or whatever - particularly when there are other mascaras that are one and done for me (Chanel Le Volume WP, Chanel Inimitable Intense). I have oily skin so most mascaras fall out on me (not the Chanel ones, HG!)... this one did a decent job of staying on my lashes but it does panda-out on me around 7 hours later. Color is nice, length is great, clumpiness stinks. Nice try and likely amazing for people who don't mind taking the time to wipe / use an eyelash brush etc - just not my breezy cup of tea.

I am very disappointed in this once amazing mascara. I've been wearing this for 6+ years and in the past year it has gone to the dogs. It used to be extremely long wearing and now it lasts 3 hours max before you look like a panda. I can only assume that YSL have changed the formula recently. I would never have bought any other mascara. I'm not even going to finish the tube, currently searching for a replacement. Such a shame. Don't fix what's not broken!

Edit- the Beauty brains advised against this mascara for contact lens wearers as it contains a nylon fibre ingredient which can cause irritation. I have stopped using it as i HAD been having eye irritation -unfortunately this is my number one for drama. I know it's all psychological - really. I would repurchase if price weren't an issue- otherwise Essence I Love Extreme Volume gives the same end look for much cheaper and less clumpiness. But somehow this is so much better or seems better (psychological effect of the pretty tube and very smooth formula). One tube is lasting for ages and the wand needs cleaning if you don't want clumping but the formula is smooth/black and the end looks very good with little effort (if you want drama). It is undoubtedly VERY clumpy which I guess shows that it's all in my head that it's 'good' - It comes off easily ( i have cried it off many times)- i refuse to buy waterproof as I hate struggling with removal but This may be something to consider if you generally have issues with mascara lasting. Doesn't flake

Very good product but it takes quite long time to dry out. When you open the product and you apply it, esp. the first 2-3 times it so liquid that makes it a torture. It has the best brush!!!

After receiving this mascara as a gift, I have been using it daily since. My lashes are naturally black and curled, so I use mascara to gain length and volume. This mascara delivers on both! It makes my lashes long, voluminous and leaves the curl enhanced. I don't get clumpy lashes, but the formula is quite thick compared to other mascaras I have used, so I apply with a lighter hand to avoid clumps. A little mascara goes a long way, I do not need to put more product on my brush after removing it from the tube - the amount on the brush is enough for both eyes. This mascara dries quickly when on the lashes and does not flake, smear or smudge throughout the day - even in the hot Australian summer! I like it a lot, but in saying that, there are other options from the drugstore which provide just as lovely of a result. This mascara is a lovely high end treat and I do enjoy using it.

This is just a below par mascara for me. The effect is skinny tinted lashes not anywhere near the promised false lash effect they boast about in the title.

This has been my HG mascara for ten years. I have strayed from time to time due to the cost, but always come back as nothing compares. Provides wonderful length and volume to my lashes and plumps them out so much that I don't need to wear false lashes ever. I know some have issues with clunking, but I think this may be due to application (YSL indicate one "pump" sufficient for both eyes) as I have never had any issues and always find it a lovely naturally full finish.
Are you sure this product is discontinued?
