YSL Eyeliner Effet Faux Cils Ashy Black 02

By now I've probably made the point that I really really like these YSL cream eyeliners, Effet Faux Cils. The creamy texture, superb longevity, and intense pigmentation are the reason I haven't bought or repurchased my previous favorites, Bobbi Brown's longwear gel liners in over a year. YSL is just that good.

Ashy Black (No. 02) is more or less what the name implies- a dirty, coal-like black; however, it has a somewhat brighter finish than the sooty Deep Black (01). I wouldn't call it exactly shimmery, nor is it metallic, but it offers a little sheen that brings some light to the eyes.

Bottom Line: Do I also need No. 3, Bronze Black?

YSL Eyeliner Effet Faux Cils Ashy Black 02 ($25) is available at the counters and online from


  1. I love these too, and this color looks amazing! :) unfortunately, they don't sell them here any more!!

  2. These are great! I have one in Cherry Black, but there are a few more colours on my wishlist.
    PS: of course you need no. 3... :-)

  3. Of course you need No.3! It's a gorgeous colour and would be great with olive skin. I started out with No.6 since it's so far from anything else I have, pencil, eyeshadow or otherwise, and am working on collecting four out of the six.


  4. I'm reaching the point where true black is too harsh-this ash black may be a lovely substitute! The textures of these lovely gels are wonderful and they do stay put all day. Marvelous product!
