Yves Rocher Lipstick and Mascara

Yves Rocher is a completely new brand to me and in the past few months I have been lucky enough to try some of the make-up range which comprises of a Mascara and a lipstick.

The first product is the Yves Rocher Grand Rouge Lipstick - Rose Equivoque* which I would describe as being a gorgeous dark plum shade, one which normally I would usually not pick up because it looks rather bold and frightening.  

However, once it has been applied, I instantly loved it.  The packaging is this gorgeous sleek shiny gold tube which is not only eye catching but very very nice, as with most lipsticks, you twist the bottom and the lipstick will appear.

As soon as I saw it for the first time i was instantly sold, it's packaged in a shiny gold tube and like most lipsticks has a twist up twist down application.  I was instantly sold on the texture of the lipstick, it being creamy really moisturising and the colour pay off was perfect to.. It didn't cling onto the dry areas and it applies so smoothly, it has a metallic like sheen to it which leaves it with a lovely shiny finish to the lips.

Then comes Sexy Pulp Mascara which again I have become a huge fan of and have been using it ever since I got it.  To start with, it has this lovely brush which is quite large, dense and all the kinds of things you want your mascara brush to be.  When you hold it against your eyelashes it feels as though it is coating each one individually, one by one.  The mascara itself looks really wet when you first open the tube, but it isn't at all, it is one of those 'just right' consistencies which make it easy to apply, it doesn't clump but it dries almost instantly on application.  After one coat you have lovely voluminious lashes and should you add a second coat, well they look even more dramatic

For me it really gave my lashes loads of volume and really lengthened them too, add to that it is one of those easy to remove mascaras and it is a fabulous product and all for just £8!  definitely something I would more than consider repurchasing when it runs out.

Have you tried either of these products?

  1. I got to try this lipstick in the same shade and thought it was lovely too. I wasnt sure when I first looked at the colour, but once it's on it's really nice and wearable :) The sexy pulp mascara sounds great x

  5. I never heard of this brand either until I came to the US and ended up subscribing to their mailing list. They seem to have a really good range, too. That mascara sounds amazing and you just reminded me that I have a similar shade of lippy that I've yet to swatch from Art Deco haha.
