2 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - May 16, 2014    ( See more reviews from Nordstrom )

I love the baby doll mascara and decided to try this because I love the colors it comes in. It is by far the globbiest, clumspiest mascara I have ever used. I thought it would get better with time and it doesn't. It's just so thick and clumpy. I'll stick with the baby doll.

5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - May 8, 2014    ( See more reviews from Nordstrom )

Love this mascara! If you love thick, dramatic lashes, this is it! I have tried just about every mascara out there and this is my "new" favorite. I liked it so much that I turned around and bought 3 more. They have a cool sea black color that is black with a blue-ish tint (can't really see the blue but it brightens eyes). It doesn't tend to last longer than 4 weeks without losing its efficacy (gets lumpy and clumpy--probably because the formulation is exceptionally thick), but they are a great 4 weeks! Anyone who does not want drama or prefers lengthening over thickening will probably not like this.

I have been searching for a great volumizing mascara and i finally found it with ysl! I have used everything from lancome to dior and this is the only one that gives great volume and doesnt run under my eyes (I have really watery eyes) by the end of the day! I use a lash primer than this and it is wonderful!

Disappointing: dry and clumpy
1 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Jan 2, 2014    ( See more reviews from Nordstrom )

I ordered this mainly because of the color (sea black) and couldn't wait to try it. The first time, it went on very thick and clumpy. I was embarrassed to go out, so had to remove it and use my other Guerlain mascara. I thought it might be the way I was applying it, but I have used it three more times, and no matter how light a touch I use, it always is uneven and flaky. I'll be sending it back.

This is one of the best mascaras I have ever used. Thick, full lashes and worth the money. I have tried many. Equally as good is Dior Show.

4 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Nov 26, 2013    ( See more reviews from Nordstrom )

I am new to the "shocking" collection. I tried this simply because it was offered in the bronze color. Many years ago YSL offered a metallic bronze/brown mascara. They later discontinued it much to my dismay. I tried this with the hope that it would be as wonderful as the discontinued one. While it was a pleasant surprise considering volume, lengthening, and some added flare... Color-wise, the bronze-black is not as stunning as its predecessor (yet)! A copper/rose-gold metallic mascara would be awesome and well received as well!!!

I have used Chanel Intimitable for the last few years, refusing to try anything new. A friend told me to try this and wow! It separates and magnifies every lash. I put on two coats for an extra dramatic look. It does not flake or diminish at all through out the day. Definitely a great find!

I switched to this YSL mascara after using Dior Show mascara for years. This product is wonderful because it doesn't flake off or irritate my eyes. I always have people complimenting my lashes and asking what kind of mascara I use. It goes on nicely and comes off easily at the end of the day. I don't think there's a better product.

Gives you that FAUX Lash LQQK
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Nov 4, 2013    ( See more reviews from Nordstrom )

If you are into big huge lashes THIS product is for you. While it exaggerates your lash length & Thickness to the highest extent possible it is not clumpy or messy. It gives you that glamourous lash look without the hassle of Fake lashes. I am a mascara junkie and I have tried over 70 brands the past year alone including far more expensive Ones than this. I have to say this is the last Mascara I will ever buy again. I had my yearly eye exam and the girl doing the glaucoma test couldnt help but ask "are you wearing falsies". "Nope!" I proudly replied . The look on her face was definatley shocking! lol Gives you that "wow" factor identical to wearing fake lashes WITHOUT the hassle. I will never go without this product again!!! xoxo

2 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Sep 25, 2013    ( See more reviews from Nordstrom )

My daughter RAVED about this mascara and it looks great on her. I never spent $30 on a mascara, but it appeared it was worth it. It does clump quite a bit and I do not see any difference from my $5 mascara. I was disappointed and probably would not buy it again.

Amazing Masacra!
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Aug 12, 2013    ( See more reviews from Nordstrom )

I bought this mascara during Nordstrom's buy 2 get 1 mascara sale. This was my free one since I have never tried it before. The makeup girl told me this was the best mascara from YSL and I have to agree with her. It gave me the look of false lashes! The trick is to rub the excess product off the brush when you take it out of the bottle. Make sure to wipe all sides onto the tip of the bottle to eliminate the chance of getting any "clumps". Overall this mascara is perfect if you normally go for full coverage makeup or for special nights on the town. I have never used a YSL makeup product before and I would definitely purchase this again :)

Disappointing, and I'm a long time YSL user. The only "shocking" thing was clumping, it never went on smoothly.

5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Apr 4, 2013    ( See more reviews from Nordstrom )

I am a professed mascara fanatic, and I'd seen this mascara featured in several fashion magazines. Finally took the plunge and purchased it a couple of days ago and LOVE IT! It definitely provides the length and volume I love to give me the false eyelashes look. I may purchase it in one of the other colors as well.

YSL Shocking Mascara
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Feb 6, 2013    ( See more reviews from Nordstrom )

This mascara works for me! My eyelashes are thin and light; after applying Shocking Mascara in black they look fuller. I am very happy with the results and certainly recommend this product.

Stings my eyes
1 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Jan 3, 2013    ( See more reviews from Nordstrom )

This mascara is not good for sensitive eyes; it stings all day long. Also, it is not 'shocking'... there are many other mascaras that create basically the same length and volume that do not sting; for example, CHANEL and Dr. Hauschka.

4 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Dec 8, 2012    ( See more reviews from Nordstrom )

This mascara is great, and gives long voluminous lashes. The only issue is that this mascara clumps if you arent really paying attention to what you're doing, or in a rush. If you take your time, your lashes will look great!

5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Nov 15, 2012    ( See more reviews from Nordstrom )

While i received the wrong color (which i understand was a shipping mistake) i am in complete love with the formula in this mascara. It enhance my eyes, It darkens the lashes - giving that shocking appeal so clear in its name. Thickens, adds length and defines my eyelashes to a sexy perfection. I only use ysl and chanel mascaras but i had never tried the 'volume effect faux cild shocking' mascara before - i might stick with this one for a while, because i sadly do not have many eyelashes - so i always look for good formulas that do not irrate my eyes and add lenght and brushes with out clumps- HELLO i found it!! Hope this helps you- note: this is my day to day mascara because its very bababoom - if you are looking for day to day & you have visable eyelashes go with there other mascaras. They bruch with out clumps but are less dramatic. This was probably made for a more FULL on make-up / night outings.

There are better options
2 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Nov 9, 2012    ( See more reviews from Nordstrom )

I got this mascara alone with original Volume Effet Faux Cils during "buy two get one free" sale. I have long, thin, blonde lashes. Tried both of mascaras side by side and I do not like Shocking at all. It dries too fast making it impossible to apply second coat, clumps really bad. Even after using lash comb my lashes looked glued together, spidery and not voluminous at all. The unusual shape of the brush did not add any effect, maybe if the formula wouldn't be so "clumpy" the brush would be ok. On the other hand I really liked Volume Effet Faux Cils. That one went on smooth, did not clump, second coat went on beautifully and gave effect of "fluffy" lashes. If in doubt get that one instead.

I have had the hardest time finding a mascara that doesn't smudge. Came across this one and I'm done looking anymore. I could care less that it's YSL, all I care about is that it looks great!
