Product Overview

Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils – Luxurious Mascara For a False Lash Effect

The photo above does show this product in Number 2 Rich Brown, I tend to use  Number 1 High Density Black choice for day wear

I’m writing my review based on the colour choice of Noir Radical, this is amazing for evening, special occasion or if you want to add more glamour.

Other Shades you might like to try:

Number 3 Extreme Blue – a great summer colour
Number 4 Fascinating Violet – a dramatic evening colour

I have just purchased a new one in Noir Radical, (Black), and Love the deep glamorous look 🙂

The Unique Packaging

All YSL packaging has a luxurious and glamorous look and feel to it, they certainly draw my attention.  Unmistakeably YSL with it’s signature gold colour, with the YSL logo.  Each cylinder can be identified by it’s own unique colour code, great if you are in a hurry and you have multiple examples of the same product, I have no doubt which one is which.  The product looks very sleek and classy and they fit into any handbag or purse quite easily.

The Application Wand

The applicator brush, or wand as I would call it, has the perfect circumference and length to give the right amount of mascara without feeling too large to work with.  It doesn’t feel intrusive around the eye area.  The wand is easy to work with, delivers a smooth gloss finish and without any of the ‘clumping’ often experienced with inferior products. All this can be achieved with one simple application.

The Mascara Itself

The thing I love the most about this product is that it really does deliver the high impact and look of having longer eye lashes right from the word go.  The colour has depth, intensity, and a glossy finish with a silky look.  I have never experienced  any problems with lumps, the consistency is ‘spot on’.  

When you pull the wand out from the cylinder you will notice that the product cleverly removes any excess mascara giving you exactly the right amount needed for each application.

Quality and Value for Money

Outstanding quality.  I have sensitive eyes, but I have had no ill effect from regular use in over 15 years.

YSL False Lash Mascara should last up to three months, mine do and that’s with daily use!

A useful tip of mine is to wash the mascara wand with facial cleanser then rinse in clean warm water, if it looks as though it is drying out.  This really does help to keep the applicator fresh and functional.

As with all mascaras you must make sure that after use you replace the wand and ensure it is tightly closed to prevent air getting to it.

I would strongly recommend that you invest in a good quality Mascara, you most definitely get your money’s worth, instant results, YSL for me a brand that I trust and I have confidence that it will not irritate my eyes.

My Professional Tip

When applying mascara, look down and stroke inside first, a great way to cover over any eyeshadow or eyeliner left on the lashes, great if like me you have a tall partner 🙂

Also take your time when adding extra coats, keep the strokes long and sweep upwards.

  1. A great review June and a product I may try now. I too have sensitive eyes and use Clinique but it doesn’t come off well and can be gritty? Any tips for removal?!

    1. Hi Emma, really appreciate your positive feedback and great comments, thank you 🙂

      I have a problem with eye sensitivity making it an easy choice for me with the YSL Faux Cils Mascara. You will find it incredibly easy to remove with no smearing or mess around the delicate eye area, I would use a gentle eye make-up remover such as the YSL Eye Make-up remover or Simple do a great range for sensitive eyes, dab a little onto a damp cotton wool pad, place on over the eye lid, leave for a couple of mins and wipe away but remember to be gentle with the under eye area.

      Hope this has been of help to you and look forward to hearing from you again.

      June 🙂

  2. This is a brilliant review its so important to have reviews on cosmetics anyone with sensitive skin problems for example really appreciate it makeup is out wall as a women we put make up on and feel safe and like we can carry on with the day and for others its to cover things that make them feel self consious. So beauty product reviews are so important youve done a great job here thankyou

    1. Thank you Chez, really appreciate your time and great feedback, always lovely to hear that I’ve managed to help others 🙂

      I do like to share my knowledge, experience and training in helping someone to make the right purchase, all to easy to waste money on the wrong make-up and skin care choices.

      Have a good weekend and great to hear from you.

  3. Hi Juniper
    Thanks for a very informative review on ysl mascara. I think you have a great niche going as I am over 50 and sometimes its hard to get the makeup looking good. I also have allergies to makeup and it makes my eyes run. Does ysl have a waterproof mascara? The price is kinda high but would be worth it if it doesn’t clump!

    1. Hi Robin and thank you for leaving such a positive comment much appreciated. A compliment in deed from someone that does not look over 50 🙂

      I have a sensitivity to makeup and that’s why I make my choices very wisely now, YSL has always suited me right from the start and yes they have a Waterproof YSL Mascara to purchase – Luxurious Mascara Waterproof – 1 Charcoal Black, 2 Burnt Brown and 3 Signature Violet.

      I hope I’ve been of help to you 🙂

  4. YSL products always classy and expensive and I’ve always wondered if there is any value to money. I’ve always been a person who doesn’t like to spend a lot of money on makeup and don’t like to waste money on makeup products that don’t work. This review has been very informative to me and will be willing to try this mascara. How many colours does this mascara come in?

    1. Hi Melanie, lovely to hear from you and thank you for all your great comments 🙂

      I really think that by making the right purchase where makeup is concerned is a wise investment, I’ve had many disasters over the years but then I fell in love with YSL products and other Luxury brands and realised that by selecting the essentials as a base for my look they gave me the impact that I needed, I buy my YSL Mascara every three months or so and actually make them more cost effective.

      In answer to your question, the YSL Vollume Effect Faux Cils Mascara come in Noir Radical, this give a very deep and intense colour, great for evenings or when you need to make an impact. Other colours in YSL False Lash Effect Mascara are in a good range and choice of colours: 1 High Density Black, 2 Rich Brown, 3 Extreme Blue, 4 Fascinating Violet, 5 Burgundy, 6 Deep Night.

      I hope this has been of some use to you and please do not hesitate to contact me again, here to help.


  5. Hey June, a beautiful review on Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils for women who want to look more beautiful and ravishing. I can understand your choice of Number 1 High Density Black as I am also using black for casual look.
    But off-course, the Rich Brown shade is going to give extra effect to the make up. And I am definitely going to try this shade now.

    1. Thank you Sangeeta, lovely to meet you and grateful for your positive comments 🙂

      Pleased that my review has been of some use to you and as a guide, please feel free to contact me again to discuss anything new in this range or when making a purchase, it is my passion and happy to exchange views.

      Have a good weekend.


  6. This is really good for women that want to look stunning! It is basically good economically too because it will last longer even if it’s being used daily. From what I have gathered from Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils, I think it is something every woman should not hesitate in having, simply because it is great, affordable, and lasts longer. See, nothing to lose but all to gain.

    Thanks for this great review.

    1. Thank you Nnamdi, really do appreciate the positive feedback and great comments 🙂
