What did I try today?

YSL Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils Luxurious Mascara in Black

What it is supposed to do?

Give those lashed high volume and a dramatic false lash effect! (


This is a very fancy mascara.  It retails for $32.00 on Sephora’s website.

The brush is supposed to be the trick of the trade here.  The nylon fiber brush is supposed to give you larger than life lashes.  Sign me up!

The formula is enriched with B5 pro-vitamin.

Love me some high-volume claims!

The Wand

Ok guys.  I didn’t think I would like this wand.  It had a lot of mini bristles, which I loved!  It wasn’t curved though.  There’s just something about a curved wand that I absolutely adore.  The wand just fits, if that makes sense.

It turned out that this wand worked VERY well.  I am so glad I gave it a chance!

It pulled every little lash and lengthened well.  Good one so far!

Application and Formula

Did you see my instastories about this?!  Did you see the first time I applied this?  WOW.

I was seriously AMAZED at the flutter, volume, and curl.  It was like everything I ever hoped for in a mascara.

One draw-back?  It is formulated with parabens.  I’d rather have it without it, to be honest.

Another awesome note, it dries quickly and didn’t get on my eyelids!

Real Life Wear

This was so much fun to wear because it didn’t move!  It also felt amazing on!  I didn’t feel it flake or transfer at all and it held the curl! WHAT?! YES, it held the curl!!

Winner, winner, in my opinion!  It checks many of the boxes for me.  Holds curl, performs well, and lasts!

What else can you ask for?

Overall Thoughts

I really like this mascara.  It’s really nice.  It’s up there with a few of my favs!

I would definitely rate this high – 4.9/5.

Have you tried this one yet?

Wishing you all the bright fireflies,
