Christmas with Yves RocherThursday, December 18, 2014
A beautiful Christmas red lip deserves nothing less than to star centre stage in a classic festive makeup look. When Yves Rocher offered to send me over some of their festive-themed pieces to create a Christmas look with, I could hardly resist. The Yves Rocher Moisturising Cream Lipstick in 'Orangé Muscade'* is simply a dream to apply, it's brilliantly creamy and glides on without any hassle. It also has a gorgeous shine, and like the name suggests, is incredibly moisturising. I love the colour they send over - Orangé Muscade - as it's not your traditional Christmas red - there is a subtle orange tinge to it that sets it apart. On my eyes, I was able to try out their Lash Plumping Mascara in Waterproof Black*. Unfortunately, my short stubby lashes need quite a bit of help, and this wasn't quite up for the job. However, I will say that it lasted really well, didn't flake or smudge and really helped to separate the lashes - it simply didn't give me the volume and length I need. After completing the rest of my makeup (products listed below) I spritzed myself with the gorgeous Yves Rocher Perfume in 'Flower Party By Night'* which is perfect for taking you from day to night. Yves Rocher describe it as 'A floral and fruity fragrance with irresistible and delicious notes of Bitter Almond Essential Oil and Chinese Badian, with a base note of Bourbon Vanilla'. It certainly is a very rich and spicy fragrance with a strong scent of liquorice. Have you tried any Yves Rocher products? What are your favourites?
