Raise the Volume | YSL Volume Mascara Effet Faux Cils

I've always been a big advocate of drug store mascara.  Why spend a small fortune on a product that's only going to dry out, am I right?  Well, I was wrong.  The last drugstore mascara I used really damaged my eyelashes, so I started browsing for more "high end" mascaras to use while my lashes go back to normal.  Around this time, I had the opportunity to try Yves Saint Laurent Mascara Volume Efft Faux Cils. 


Here's a little more about the mascara:

The most emblematic "false lash effect" volume mascara, now with an all new Lash Care formula.  Its secret is the Triple-Intensity Formula:  intense volume, intense color, and now intense care.  The nylon fiber brush coats each lash in deep color and maximum volume from root to tip, while B5 Pro-Vitamin strengthens and protects lashes.  I love love love that the mascara is packed with B5!

And here's how the mascara makes your lashes look!











If I was going to rate this product on a scale of 1-5, I would give it a 4 star rating.  It's not the best mascara I've ever used, but it's also far from the worst!  If I could make a change to the formula, I would want it to be less clumpy.  My favorite things about the mascara are that it contains Vitamin B5 (great for my suffering lashes), it's long lasting, and you don't have to scrub it off of your eyelashes at the end of the day!

Happy Tuesday, y'all!

  2. Wow!! I love the with/without photo! That is such a dramatic comparison and I love seeing the effect in the same photo.

    Great review, I might have to give this a try if I venture away from my usual! I am a die-hard "Lights, Camera, Lashes" fan.

  8. OH WOW! I definitely see the difference! Thanks for showing a before and after pic. It really tells the whole story. I love that it has B5 in it. I've only tried a couple of YSL products, like Touch Eclat. I usually stick with Lancome, but was disappointed with their Grandiose mascara. I tried some mid range mascaras and liked Smashbox & Urban Decay's Perversion.
