Yves Rocher - Makeup review and look
Now I've been so impressed with the skincare, i wanted to see if the makeup was as good. Eye makeup is my main focus whenever i wear makeup, as i think it can be so exciting and creative. I received a pack of eye makeup from Yves rocher and at the end of my review i will show you the look i achieved.
They say :
Yves Rocher constantly innovates to offer trendy and creative make-up products. Daily, our new
make-up products are irrefutable beauty allies. Yves Rocher can offer all women high-quality
affordable cosmetics at local outlets because it is an all-in-one grower, producer and distributor that
handles every stage of its products with no middlemen. This uncompromising course of action has
always been the brand's standard and always will be.
The products il be reviewing and trying are :
Mascara volume vertige
100% Kajal eyeliner
Green quad and swatches
Looks : Used dry, the ultra-pigmented tones reveal shimmering, satin or matte effects. Used wet, the shimmer and satin turn metallic, and the matte becomes dense for a more intense and sophisticated look. Always in perfect harmony, they offer endless personalized makeup possibilities.
The eyeshadows are light in texture and buttery, applying well to the eye and adhereing to any primer with no fallout. Even the light glitter shade did not cause much concern in application and blended in well with the other colours on blending. In applying as recommended on the package i achieved a lovely deep green smokey eye, with the light green giving a beautiful lightness to the look. The black was very pigmented and only little of the eyeshadow is needed to achieve this look. I really liked the packaging and product in the way it performed. Perfect for travel and i would not hesitate to purchase any of the other shades to try.
Mascara Volume vertige
Gives a light and pigmented application onto the lashes with no clumping. It allows for perfect placement of the mascara onto the lashes. In application and drying it was very fast, then took another layer very easily again without clumping. During the day it did not flake nor cause any irritation. On removal it came away easily and with little trouble, a very impressive mascara both on the eye and on removal.
100% Kajal Eyeliner
100% Kajal eyeliner : Eyes highlighted in luminous colour this spring. Yves Rocher unveils the key to your powers of seduction. A creamy intensely pigmented Kajal in 6 trendy beguiling shades for a captivating look.
This eyelid primer is meant to help the eyeshadows stick, plus keep them looking strong for however many hours you need your eye makeup to last. In saying that it didn't give me a very good base to cover my veins and blue tinge that i would usually find in my primer. Now this is a moisturising primer and if you don't need coverage for veins or dulling this skin colour then its amazing. I would still use this as a primer to moisturise, then use a coloured base so i have a skin colour canvas to work on. So it did fill the lines and didn't make my shadows crease which was important. So whilst I'm very on the fence about this primer, it does moisturise plus feel silky. It does need more pigment to become a firm base for ladies needing the coverage.
Look with products
Above is the look i created using only the 4 above mentioned products. As you can see just below the eyebrow where there is a reddish tinge is, that area is where the primer needs to be more pigmented to help cover that. Other then that feedback, i can say these products do perform. They offer a silky, pigmented and quality makeup. Im quite excited to use more products from the range and see what i can achieve with them.
