A couple of weeks ago I posted about the Yves Rocher skincare range. This was the first time I had heard of the brand and I was really impressed with the products I received. (You can read that review here). So when an email landed in my box asking if I would like to try some of their new makeup range, I immediately said yes.
I was very kindly sent four of their products to try; an eyeshadow quad, eyeliner, eyeshadow primer and a mascara. The perfect products to create a smokey eye look.
First I started by applying the Fixing Eyelid Primer - £7.50* to both my eyelids. The texture felt really creamy and soft and was a yellowish colour. A little definitely goes a long way with this primer and as it has a slight stickiness feel to it, you know your eye shadows are going to last all day.
Next I used the Quad eyeshadow palette in Brilliant Green - £12.50*. Now I'm not normally one to wear green eyeshadows, but I think I made it work. I started by applying the lightest shade all over my lid. It's a lovely silver sort of shade with a bit of shimmer. Next I applied the shade next to it which is the lightest of the green on about 3/4 of my eyelid. I then used the second darkest green in the crease. Then the last shade, I dampen a thin brush and applied it under my lower lashes.
I didn't want to go to heavy with the Creamy Kohl Eyeliner - £4.90*, so I just applied it to the tightline, which I think made my eyes pop and didn't look to heavy. This was such a fun and interesting product to use! I've never tried an eyeliner like this before, but I enjoyed using it and think it will become a staple in my makeup bag.
Last but not least, I finished the look off with a couple of coats of the Volume Vertige mascara - £11.50*. This mascara was definitely my favourite product to use out of the whole look. The wand is plastic and has a sort of hourglass shape. It lengthen and separated my lashes really well and left me with long luscious lashes!
