Yves Rocher is a French company that started over 50 years ago in France. Organic plants are harvested and then extracted to bring you the best ingredients in their line of products. You can learn all about their products here. I was given the wonderful opportunity to review Yves Rocher products. Over the next four months, you are going to see some fantastic products at a great price. This month we are going to show you Couleurs nature products that are light, beautiful, long lasting and waterproof. As most of you know, I am a lover of all kinds of makeup. I am an eyeshadow junkie and love to mix colors together to create different fun looks. These products not only wear well but also are easy to apply. All the Long Lasting Waterproof cream eyeshadows is on sale for $9.50 and retails for $17.00.
The Yves Rocher 12 hour Long Lasting Waterproof Cream Eyeshadow is an eyeshadow that is made to last and keep your makeup looking fresh in rain or shine! The creamy texture and applicator tip makes it very easy to apply. I found that you start applying with the applicator tip and then I used my makeup brush to spread over my eyelid. You have to work quickly as once it dries it is harder to spread. This eyeshadow is a bluish color with purple tones. I really love the color and think it accentuates my eyes nicely.
This beautiful fresh blue color is a light shade of blue that is perfect for wearing with many different outfits. I love how easy it blends and it has a beautiful pearl satin finish look. This is one of my favorite colors.
The bronze eyeshadow has a dark brown tone and goes with many different shades. I would prefer to use a black eyeliner with this shade or a hot brown. The eyeshadow is very pigmented so you do not need a lot and spreads easy.
When I received the nude eyeshadow, I was excited because I honestly do not have many light colors to use as a highlight. In this eyeshot, I am wearing Urban Decay YDK eyeshadow, which is a neutral shimmer shade, and I thought this would pair well with the Yves Rocher nude color. I used the Yves Rocher right under my brow bone to highlight my eyes. It is much harder to see if I took an open eye shot so I wanted to show you with my eye closed. Highlighting is used to accentuate the eye and make your eyes light up. In addition, it helps compliment the other colors and lifts your eyes. I always use a lighter color for the highlight area.
I love a good mascara to give my eyelashes a fuller longer look. My eyelashes are on the short side; therefore, I am always searching for the right mascara to give my eyelashes more length. Yves Rocher 360° Length mascara has a spherical tip that helps gather the lashes easier. In addition the elastomeric brush covers the entire surface of the lashes to give you clump free lashes. This mascara are made with almond protein, which is designed to strengthen your lashes. Right now this is on sale for $9.00 and retails for $16.00
This now is one of my favorite mascaras. I love the mascara brush as it grabs onto my lashes and gives me an even sweep up. I noticed a big difference in my lashes once I applied the mascara and noticed it curled my lashes upwards more than any other mascaras. Start at the base of your eyelashes and slowly wiggle the brush back and forth, as you use a sweeping motion upward. This technique can help show length in your lashes.
I received two different eye pencils from Yves Rocher. The one on the left is the hot brown and the one on the right is tangy green. Both of these eye pencils are waterproof so they are perfect if you are in a heat wave or it is raining out and you do not want your makeup to smudge. Both have a built in sharpener as it has a retractable tip to make application smooth. I have always used a retractable tip eyeliner or a liquid eyeliner. I am not fond of ones I have to sharpen and have had terrible experiences with them. These are my go to eyeliners! In addition, these will not tug on your eyes and make it feel like your eyes are pulling in different directions. The application is very easy and they glide across and provide adequate amount of color. In my eyeshot above you can see I have utilized the hot brown and have used the tangy green in other pictures. You can pick this up today for $6.60 on sale. Regular price is $12.00
I love lip-gloss but I do not normally wear it a lot, as I have a hard time finding one that is not sticky but gives me great shine. With that said, I think i found a lip-gloss I truly like. The Yves Rocher Sexy Pulp Volume lip gloss not only gives you great shine but enhances your lips to give it a more plump look. The gloss is light and non-sticky which is exactly what I have been looking for. You can wear this color and gloss with any color outfit. I did not find it overly pigmented but gloss is not supposed to be like lipstick. It has a peachy tone of color to the gloss; however, I wish it had a little more to show better. Overall, I am very happy with this lip-gloss. You can find it on sale for $10.00 rather than $18.00.
I love each item I received from Yves Rocher. The products are of great quality for a lot less than other brands. The eyeshadow did not crease and lasted all day. In addition, it did not smudge or tug at my eyelids. The color is very well pigmented and using less is more! Stay tuned for next month to see what I have in store from Yves Rocher! I hope you enjoyed these as much as I enjoyed sharing it with you.
