YSL Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils review + swatches+ comparison

Hi dolls,

I have tested the YSL faux cils mascara it was a gift

Packaging: The YSL mascara comes in the classic golden packaging.A metal tube with a YSL indentation.However there is also a little box with all the information printed on.It contains 0.2 fl.oz/ 7,5 ml and you can use it up for 6 months.
The brush is nothing average mascara brush.

The product: The mascara has a very thick and rich texture and it is perfumed.

What it promises: False lash effect

My 2 cents: Boy oh boy,where do I start? First of all this product is not cruelty free,which is one of the reasons I will not use it any further and give it to another family member who doesn't care.
I did a comparison to the pink essence multi action mascara.
The application is easy,because the brush is quite small and easy to handle,but it picks up quite a lot of product in the beginning.
I just can't wrap my head around the smell of the mascara.It is a bit floral and one thing is for sure:
I dislike smelling mascaras.
Another thing I don't like is,that when a bit mascara comes into your eyes (accidents happen,especially with a clumsy user) it burns a bit.
Other mascaras don't burn that badly,you blink and it's gone,but in order to make the stinginess of the YSL go away,you need to blink quite a bit.

The false lash effect is good,but nothing special,here is a picture with the essence multi action and the YSL in comparison:
Left : YSL (1)      Right: Essence multi action (2)
I like the curl that it gives the lashes,but I had a difficult time getting all my bottom lashes right.Given the fact that my lashes are quite long and heavy,it did a really good job.

But why paying so much money,if you can have the same effect with a 2,95 Euro mascara?

It lasts quite a long time and it is easy to remove.

-False lash effect
-long wearing
-holds the curl

-Packaging is tacky and it needs constant polishing because of evil fingerprints
-average brush

Conclusion: I don't need to add anything? Do I?
