Editor's Rating & Review

We'll give it points for the luxe-factor. The thick nylon fibers on the wand evenly coat and separate each lash. But it takes several of the advertised "single strokes" to get the "intense look." The liquid dries fast and lashes look strong and defined, but full-on faux? Not quite. And the price stings. Major plus: The wand stays gunk-free even after months of use.

    Pretty lashes...for the first half hour

    I totally agree that this mascara gives long, luscious lashes with a nice fanned look BUT it flakes. Badly. Enough that after a week I tossed it. — 1 month, 1 week ago

    almost everything is great

    I love the formula of this mascara and the colors it is offered in. I love the colors and with very careful application it can look amazing. The formula is on the thin side, as it is meant to be layered on. I have found that the biggest strength of this mascara is that it lengthens really well. It doesn't flake, and stays on all day. It would be my absolute favorite mascara but I hate the bru...read moresh. It makes the thin formula clump like crazy. You have to be very careful applying or your lashes will get spidery. It also seems to have a short shelf life. The first month the mascara went on smoother, and now it seems like it is already starting to dry out. Please YSL, improve the brush! — 1 year, 1 month ago
