Yves Rocher Comme une Evidence Eau de parfum

Perfume is one of the things I love in life and I am quite choosy about what I like and what I don't like, so when I was sent some Yves Rocher Comme Une Evidence Eau De Parfum** to review I was initially quite nervous that it wouldn't be something I liked.

Packaged inside a dusty pink coloured box, The bottle looks to be slightly plain until you look a little more closely whereupon which it is made of quite chunky glass and when the sun shines on it, you can see just hows pink the bottle is and one of the first things I noticed was the solidness of the bottom of the bottle where the pink colour is more evident.

Yves Rocher Comme une Evidence Eau de parfum

This perfume features two of my favourite scents -  Rose and Jasmine and for me these are the two most detectable scents within the perfume.  Working with:

  • Top notes of both bergamot and violet leaves. 
  • Heart notes: rose, jasmine, wild lily of the valley
  • Base note: patchouli
All these come together to create a lovely perfume. Once it has been spritzed onto the skin, the rose and jasmine for me really come to life to make it a wonderful spring and summer scent and the fragrance itself on the skin lasts pretty much all day when I am wearing it.  

So from a perfume I initially didn't think I would like, it has become one that I absolutely love and I would definitely want to check out more perfumes from this range.

What's your perfect Spring/Summer scent?

GOSH Lipstick collection 2014

A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to be invited to the launch of the GOSH Cosmetics SS14 make-up launch which you can read about HERE and today's post features the lipsticks that I was lucky enough to be given in my goody bag.

Within the collection there is a total of eight lipsticks in the collection and today I will be sharing five of them with you.  Called GOSH Velvet Touch Lipsticks, they contain nourishing vegetable oils which helps to keep your lips moisturised as well as vitamin E which again helps to protect your lips from harmful pollution, add to that the light-reflecting pigments and you have one very lovely lipstick, or in my case five of them.  The packaging is quite a nice mixture of matte and shiny black for the casing which I really like because it makes them feel a lot more expensive than they actually are.

Once applied to the lips, the first thing I noticed was how light they actually are, some of the lipsticks I have tried from other brands feel really heavy in your lips, as though you have literally applied multiple coats when infact it is just the one, with the GOSH lipsticks, whilst one swipe across the lips is enough to give you a lovely hint of colour, they are really moisturising and leave your lips feeling incredibly smooth.

The five lipsticks within my collection are:

156 - Romance which is a baby pink shade and quite sheer when applied to the lips
155 - Innocence which is a baby pink shade
158 - Yours Forever which is a quite red when you look at it, but from the swatch hopefully you can see it is more of a berry colour with pink undertones
162 - Nude which is a much lighter nude and quite sheer
161 - Sweetheart which is a dark brown nude

From all of these lipsticks, Nude and Romance are the two I tend to wear more than the others.  I haven't yet been brave enough to try Yours Forever though it is stunning.  Once applied these lipsticks are stayers, they remain in the lips for a good couple of hours despite eating, drinking and constantly talking. 

You can find all of these lipsticks plus another three shades in Superdrug For just £6.49 each and I have to say, I have become quite a fan of these GOSH lipsticks and think they are such brilliant value for money and definitely worth a look. 

What do you think of the GOSH Spring lipstick collection?
