The Lash Diaries: Yves Rocher Volume Vertige mascara


Wowza, are those lashes real?

I don’t think I have ever been as excited over mascara prior to trying Yves Rocher’s Volume Vertige Lash Curler Effect mascara.  I have tried many mascaras and they all have amazing claims, but very few actually live up to the hype.

From Yves Rocher:

Discover the first brush with a reservoir© for maximum volume after the first application! The Volume Vertige Lash Curler Effect Mascara‘s reservoir brush© maximizes 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*!

I thought this was going to be the usual PR mumbo jumbo and then I tried it.  First I applied it without my beloved Shu Uemura eyelash curler and I thought it was pretty good, it lived up to the claims.  Then I gave it a try with the curler, and bazinga, it left me with some fab lashes.

I think that most mascaras claim that “false lash” effect, but this was the first one I have ever tried where it looked like I had eyelash extensions on (and I used to have eyelash extensions, so I know what they look like).

The brush itself is kinda weird; it’s curvy but has product in the middle, so it dispenses product as you brush it on.

As you can see in the photos, my lashes look amazing.  I am so impressed with this, and best of all, it’s super affordable.  For only C$12 you can get false lashes the fake way.  And don’t worry, I won’t tell your secret ;).


Please note, I was sent these products by PR.  All opinions are my honest own.
