I have been a big fan of the Yves Rocher body care, hair care and fragrances for a couple of years, since I made my first order with them. I have tried a couple of bits of their makeup - the Sexy Plump Mascara (which is pretty amazing) and one of their lipsticks; however I have wanted to try more of their makeup but as far as I know they don't have a store or counter in the UK. I picked three products and I was kindly sent them for review; honesty as always, check out the disclaimer tab for more information on my personal policy on reviewing products and working with brands (here).
Firstly, a foundation that I have wanted to try a over two years - the *Yves Rocher Comfort Cream Foundation (100 Beige Very Fair, RRP £16.50 - currently only £9.65) which I have been using for the past couple of weeks and I have kind of fallen in love with it. The shade is a good match for me, it is quite yellow toned so it helps to cancel out the natural red/pink tone of the skin. The foundation glides on so easily, I have been applying it with my hands - mainly as I don't have any clean makeup brushes left...oops! It feels comfortable, moisturising on the skin and it leaves my skin looking even, luminous and fresh. The only negative point is that it can cling to very dry areas although exfoliators and facial oils help solve this issue. Overall rating: ★★★★★, 5/5.
The next product is the *Yves Rocher Matte Compact Powder (100 Matte Very Fair, RRP £20 - currently only £10.25) which comes in a really nice, durable compact so it would be great for travelling or on the go. The shade is fantastic for my very fair skin tone and the powder is matte although not very flat. Even though I have dry skin, my t-zone can get a little oily especially because of the central heating at this time of the year and this powder controls oil well without looking very caky or heavy. Overall rating: ★★★★☆, 4/5.
Last but not least is the *Yves Rocher Ultra Long Lasting Cream Eyeshadow (07 Bronze, RRP £14 - currently only £7) which is a gorgeous bronzy, taupe shade. I have been using it sparking on the lids as a wash of shadow. I have been using it with an eyeshadow primer and it lasts pretty much all of the day It is relatively easy to blend and looks gorgeous on the eyes. It can crease on me after about five/six hours without a primer, however all eyeshadows crease on me! Overall rating: ★★★★☆, 4/5.
Overall, I love all of the items! Together the make up a gorgeous, quick and easy autumn/winter makeup look that is radiant and simple but still sparkly and festive. I will probably have a look using these products on my instagram (@heathernixon4) and or twitter (@ofbeautyand)soon. I definitely want to try more Yves Rocher cosmetics! Here are a few of the products on my Yves Rocher wish list:
