General Comments on this product:
after reading a lot of positive reviews, I bought this mascara. I absolutly adored this mascara when I first used it, it brings out lashes I didn't even know I had! but I'm am a bit disappointed about the fact that the mascara flakes after a day of wearing it, and since I'm waering contacts this is not good news. I guess I'm going back to use another mascara, i still have plenty other ones I want to try!

I too love this mascara, just don't like the fact that the tube dries out quickly... even without any pumping of the wand... I do love the lengthening effect tho' on my practically non-existant lashes.

When I first started using this mascara I loved it, it makes lashes look loads longer and fuller and the packaging is gorgeous but it dries out too fast (3 weeks) which is a shame because it really does give a false lash effect.

Frankly speaking, I was more than a little disappointed with this mascara. For all the hype and price that I paid, I expected something more. But this mascara was just mediocre. The only thing I liked was the glam gold packaging and the click sound that ensured that the mascara tube was tight. Results wise, I'm still going back to my Clinique High Impact. Sorry YSL!

General Comments on this product:
This would have to be one of my HG mascara's, everybody always comments on my lashes whenever I wear this. It trully does give the 'false lash effrect'. However, I'm only giving this 4/5 because it tends to dry up really quickly. It's really great for the first month or so but then it starts to get clumpy and dry and not as great. I can't justify spending so much money on a mascara thats only going to be useful for 4-6 weeks.

General Comments on this product:
I love this mascara! It's pretty pricey but mine lasts a good 3-4 months of nearly everyday use. I love the length and fullness it gives my lashes. Many have even asked if my lashes were real, so I'm a believer! The formula washes off without much effort yet it can withstand teary-eyed moments without any running. The first tube I had I did notice that it got dry relatively fast but on my next tube (and every other one after that) I read the enclosed directions and made sure that I washed the wand weekly and cleaned up any excess product before and after each use. Since then my YSL Faux Cils still remains my HG
HTH!

A must for any girl who loves thick, long, lustrous lashes. I have this in both the black and burgundy color. The burgundy color makes my greenish hazel eyes look truly golden green. The black is rich and dark. It does dry out a bit but if you follow the instructions and wipe the wand every week (it seems wasteful, but I swear it helps), you'll notice that it doesn't dry out nearly as fast and keeps the product nice in consistency. Lengthens, volumizes, and defines lashes. I put on five or six coats of this and it doesn't even clump! Damn expensive but worth every penny.

This mascara is amazing and definitely lives up to its name. The only downside to it, as previous members have pointed out, is that it does tend to dry out very quickly. However, it is truly worth the price and a definite HG product.

Ok I love this mascara it doesn't clump, smells good and gives you va va voom lashes, the only downside is it dries up in the tube very quickly; I did follow the intructions and wiped the wand every week but it still JUST about lasted 3 months, infact I would say you can 1 1/2-2 months good use out of it before it loses the effect, I would repurchase unless I found something better.

I LOVE this mascara. I haven't had issues with it drying out like others have, though. Expensive, but gives really a really dramatic effect and is my HG mascara, for sure. Worth every penny.

Would I buy again: Hell no.

I loved this mascara... the packaging, the color, the effect it gave me. But for the price, it dries out more quickly than any mascara I have ever used before. I don't mind the price because I am definitely willing to pay that much but I will not pay that amount for something that will dry out in 3 weeks. This is a good choice for people who throw out their mascaras every 3 months... but it might not even last you the 3 months.
