Fauxcils I so, so wanted to love this mascara. It's been recommended to me by so many people, who've said such wonderful things about it that I just had to try it. Here's what happened...

How It Works: Well, it's a mascara, innit? It works by making your eyelashes look darker, longer, lusher and lovelier. Or that's the theory, anyway. This one in particular is supposed to mimic the "faux cils" (false eyelashes) look, creating big ole doll-like lashes. But does it work?

Packaging: Like Touche Eclat before it, Faux Ciels comes in YSL's signature gold "tube". It's a look that's working for them, so let's not knock it: and there's no denying it feels satisfyingly expensive when you pcik it up. I like that. 8/10
