The New, Improved Yves Saint Laurent MASCARA VOLUME EFFET FAUX CILS

Thanks to Influenster, I got to try out the new, improved formula that YSL used on their classic MASCARA VOLUME EFFET FAUX CILS. This mascara is supposed to give a "False Lash" effect.
Since mascara looks are VERY subjective
(some want length, some want volume, some want definition, some want very dramatic lashes, others want more natural looking lashes), I won't try to tell you about how good or bad it is. What I'll do is show you what the mascara looks like on me.

I'll also show you how it looked after hours of wear (the pictures were taken on several different days).
Then, it's up to you to decide whether YSL MASCARA VOLUME EFFET FAUX CILS is the mascara for you.

 The one thing I want to be sure to share with you...
for me, I end up with transfer to my bottom lashline, even when I don't wear mascara on the bottom lashes...even with no lower eyeliner.
I did that so I could be sure that it wasn't caused by either of those. See below:
 After about 8 hours of wear.
 This didn't happen every time I wore it, but it did about a third of the time.
