I picked up the Yves Saint Laurent Volume Effet Faux Cils because I had seen some great reviews about it and wanted to see if all the is true. As it turns out while I like it I’m not completely in love with it. The brand sells the Volume Effet Faux Cils as a mascara that is good for lengthening purposes. Sephora says that will help that this mascara will help you achieve “an intense dramatic lash look in a single stroke.” Maybe it’s just me but I’m not getting any of this.
The more I looked at my lashes the more I felt like the YSL Mascara Faux Cils made my lashes just looked darker and not necessarily longer and certainly not fuller. Not only were my lashes still thin, now they were also clumped together and there was no separation at all. See the pictures below to see what I mean (and please excuse my eyebrows I’m about to review a new product from Anastasia).
I feel that I’ve seen other mascaras that do a better job and at a lower cost and wouldn’t purchase this one again.
