Out with the old : Yves Rocher Volume Vertige Mascara

As I am about to finish this mascara ( it has first gooped, then it has dried up and has become very difficult to apply, so I decided to let it go), I decided to share with you my thoughts about it. I love Yves Rocher products so I was very excited to try this mascara Yves Rocher Volume Vertige Mascara (if you want to find out more about the brand you can read here : http://beautyinfiveminutes.blogspot.ro/2014/12/yves-rocher-jardins-du-monde-orange.html)

The mascara comes in a silver plastic recipient of 9 ml/0.3 oz. of product and it is supposed to give maximum volume and spectacular curve
The mascara uses the first brush with a reservoir for maximum volume after the first application! The reservoir brush  maximises and intensifies the volume of your lashes. Enriched with Elemi Gum, a fixing botanical extract, this formula leaves the lashes naturally and perfectly curved for 12 hours*! * Satisfaction test under 12 people. (France)

The Elemi gum from the Manilla Elemi tree originating in the Philippines fixes and maintains the curve of lashes naturally, all day long. Key botanicals: Carnauba wax, Acacia gum, Elemi gum, organic cornflower water, Almond proteins.
Here are the ingredients : aqua/water/eau, styrene/acrylates/ammonium methacrylate copolymer, candelilla cera/euphorbia cerifera (candelilla) wax/cire de candelilla, dipentaerythrityl hexahydroxystearate/hexastearate/hexarosinate, centaurea cyanus flower water, methylpropanediol, polybutene, acacia senegal gum, pvp, peg-40 stearate, potassium cetyl phosphate, vp/eicosene copolymer, olus oil/vegetable oil/huile vegetale, oryza sativa (rice) bran cera/wax, glyceryl stearate, sorbitan stearate, microcrystalline cellulose, nylon-12, hydroxyethylcellulose, hydrogenated palm oil, panthenol, hydrogenated rapeseed oil, phenoxyethanol, glyceryl behenate, dimethicone, aminomethyl propanol, tocopheryl acetate, hydrogenated vegetable oil, canarium luzonicum gum nonvolatiles, tetrasodium edta, butylene glycol, dimethiconol, sodium laureth-12 sulfate, caprylyl glycol, hydrolyzed sweet almond protein, citric acid, sodium benzoate, pantolactone, potassium sorbate, c11-15 pareth-7, tocopherol [+/- (may contain/peut contenir) ci 77007 (ultramarines), ci 77491/ci 77492/ci 77499 (iron oxides), ci 77891 (titanium dioxide)].

It is paraben free and tested under dermatological and ophthalmic supervision. 
I love that it is a black mascara and it didn't cause any reaction to my eyes. Considering that it promises to give volume and curl to the lashes I'll let the pictures do the talking.

It didn't blow me away but it is curling and gives a decent volume and length to the lashes. My problem with it was the fact that it dried pretty rapidly (in 2 or 3 months, other mascaras lasted 4 to 5 months - I don't apply heavily mascara and I sometimes skip it altogether).

It can be found at all Yves Rocher stores and online here : http://www.yves-rocher.ro/control/machiaj/rimel/mascara-volum-vertiginos/?cmSrc=Category    at the price of 60 ron (now it's on sale)/ aprox 11 dollars.

All in all, Yves Rocher Volume Vertige Mascara is a good quality mascara but at this price point I can find cheaper mascaras that have the same effect - so I give it the B grade. It gives volume, length and curl but it didn't have an extraordinary effect on my lashes. Still it is a great product so if you are curious about it, give it a try!
A dose of English :
goop - a viscous or sticky substance
wax - ceara
gum - cauciuc


  1. Mie imi plac mult rimelurile Yves Rocher, mai ales cel in ambalaj roz, pentru volum parca..

    Te-am nominalizat pentru un tag :D

  2. si eu vreau sa incerc si alte rimeluri de la ei, pacat acesta ca s-a uscat cam repede..


I would love to hear from you
