YSL Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils

I've been going through all of my mascara samples, and now I'm using Yves Saint Laurent's Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils! I've actually never used any YSL mascaras before, so I was really excited to try this one out. I received this sample in my February Topbox, and I'm just getting around to using it now!

I've been loving this mascara, it adds an insane amount of volume and length, and the colour is jet black. This mascara is really wet, and glides onto lashes really easily. I use one coat if I want a normal mascara look, and two coats if I'm wanting more drama. The curl is unreal with this mascara, it's the best effect I've ever gotten from a mascara!

One thing that I dislike about this mascara is that it transfers really easily. I normally only make it an hour before I have some signs of mascara under my eyes. I don't have oily skin, so if you do I would stay away from this mascara. It's not hard to clean this up, but the situation is not ideal. Aside from the transferring, this mascara does last on my lashes all day.

I really enjoyed using this sample, but I probably won't be splurging on the full size version, which is $36.00 CDN. I love this mascara, but I can also get a great effect from my favourite drugstore mascara, Covergirl's Lash Blast.

Have you tried YSL's Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils? What is your favourite mascara?


  1. I haven't tried this, but it looks great! Pity about the transfrering though. I'm the same as you, I swear by my fave drugstore mascara - Max Factor False Lash Effect Waterproof x

    1. Thanks! I might try the waterproof version of this, hopefully it doesn't transfer!
      Drugstore mascaras are amazing, there's usually no sense in splurging on high end brands!
