YSL Mascara Volume Effect Faux Cils

I'm not usually one to go for high-end mascara, but while on the airplane to Lanzarote a few months ago I purchased YSL Faux Cils. It was on a whim really and may have had something to do with the magazine I was reading where Coleen Rooney said she loved it for big, full lashes.
I think it cost about £20 which in my eyes is quite ridiculous, but I would certainly be tempted to buy again because I love everything about this mascara!

Firstly, the brush is lovely and soft. The previous mascara I'd been using (Maybelline False Lash Effect) had a brush that was so hard it would hurt if I got it too close to my eye!
It also smells lovely, which I know isn't something that is important when choosing a mascara and could possibly be a problem for someone with really sensitive eyes, but it's a nice touch that I haven't noticed with drugstore mascaras. It makes it feel more luxurious, particularly when paired with the gold packaging!

The effect it gives is full, luscious lashes that is achieved after only one coat.

To get an even fuller effect you can apply a few more coats.

I'm not saying it's the best on the market, and I'm sure there are cheaper mascaras that give just as full lashes. But I haven't found one and of all the mascaras I've used over the past couple of years YSL Faux Cils is by far the best.

Do you have any recommendations for mascaras that give lots of volume? I've been wanting to try Giorgio Armani Eyes To Kill Excess...anyone tried it?


  1. Great blog - I'm a follower! I love your Giftgirls ring, talk about a statement piece!
    I've only ever used Touche Eclat by YSL but their products always look so tempting - the mascara looks lovely in your photo!

  2. I use maybelline false lash effect at the moment like you used to and really love it, although when it runs out I think I might try the max factor false lash effect as I've heard good things about it, it's just a bit more pricey than maybelline...this YSL mascara looks lush though, I just couldn't pay £20 for it! I've put you on my list of favourite blogs by the way :) xxx


  3. Oh wow - fantastic! I am on the look out for a high end mascara but not sure which to choose! This looks fantastic :)

  4. Wow that does look absolutely beautiful!


  5. Your eyelashes look AMAZING with this mascara on! So full and long.. next time I'm on the plane I might have to buy this :o I have heard that it dries out very fast though.. have you found that to be an issue? X

  6. The mascara wand looks similar to the Loreal Voluminus Waterproof! It works really well, and if you haven't tried it you should! :)
