Yves Rocher | The Perfect Smokey Eye.

Yves Rocher is fast becoming one of our favourite brands. If you are a regular on our blog, you will have seen that we we're absolutely blown away by Yves Rocher's new Serum Vegetal day and night creams (read our review here!) so you can imagine our excitement when we we're kindly sent Yves Rocher's make up to review for our blog!  We recieved the Quad Eyeshadow Sumptuous Color in Red Hot Brown*, the Fixing Eyelid Primer*, the newly released Creamy Kohl* and the Mascara Volume Vertige*. Seeing as we had only tried the skincare range, we we're so excited to try the makeup. Every girl can't resist new makeup, can they? Especially when it's from Yves Rocher, botanical beauty masters.
First up we have the Quad Eyeshadow Sumptuous Color in Red Hot Brown* and the Fixing Eyelid Primer*. We we're both super excited about trying out the eyeshadows - we are self-confessed eyeshadow junkies! Having not used  an eyeshadow primer before, I was also looking forward to testing that out too. I found the primer super comfortable to wear on my eyes and it's really did make a difference to my eyeshadow's staying power! The primer is none greasy and keeps the eyeshadow in place all day with creasing. I was definitely pleasantly surprised by this product. It's a must-have for any girl that wants a dramatic eye look that stays put all day. The eyeshadow quad is just beautiful. It's as simple as that! I really love the way the two lighter shades in the quad are super shimmery. They work great as highlighters and really open up the eye. The two brown shades are just as gorgeous. My favourite shade in the whole palette is the dark brown. It's really matte and adds so much depth to my eye. I love blending it in my crease.
As you can see in one of the photographs above, Yves Rocher also include an easy step-by-step guide on how to achieve the perfect smokey eye using the quad of eyeshadows, making this the perfect quad for a either a beginner or an expert! I can create many looks using this palette, whether I want a simple eye, classic brown eye or a glamourous smokey eye, this is the most versitile quad in my collection. I love the packaging too. The big mirror makes it so easy to touch up your look on the go! I just love the shiny case it's in too.
The eyeliner arrived just in time for us as we we're both in need of a new kohl liner! I prefer using kohl pencil to liquid liners but I always hate sharpening them! But with this beauty, sharpening is a thing of the past! This one simply twists up and is ready to apply. I just love it! I love how thick the stick is but I still find I can apply a thin line of black on my eyes. The colour is ultra black, my absolutely favourite of course! The ONLY issue I have with this liner is that it smudges. A LOT! I don't advise using this liner in your waterline as it does cause quite a bit of mess.The mascara is just amazing and curls my lashes to perfection. I love the shape of the brush as it just combs through my eyelashes and leaves no clumps. It's really black and the thing I absolutely love about this mascara is that it dries so quick. So when I blink after doing my mascara, I don't end up with half it underneath my eyes! Obviously, I'm in love.

Well, There you have it! Yves Rocher are complete masterminds when it comes to both skincare and makeup cosmetics! I know I will definitely be looking into more from the brand. Will you be checking it out too?

  1. I'd like to try that eyeliner, I don't like liquid eyeliners and I don't like having to sharpen the pencil ones!
