Summer is not over yet and despite the fact that fall is just around the corner I am still wearing bright colors and fun, eye catching shades. This summer Yves Rocher launched a fabulous summer collection which includes everything from fragrance, polish, gloss, bronzer, shadows and more! The theme captures the essence of summer by the Mediterranean Sea and incorporates varying shades of blues, sandy bronze, sparkling gold and sunny yellows. The collection also includes shades that can transition from summer to fall such as: pink, navy and brown.
3 Pearl Effect Eye Shadows – retail price: $9.95
I like that the bronze and nude shades in this palette provide illuminating shimmer and match beautifully with the deep blue. Although the palette is small it is ideal for travel and the shadows have a silky smooth texture and good pigmentation. They can also be used to create both neutral and bold looks to transition from light and playful during the day to sultry and smokey for evening wear.
Summer Collection Eye Pencils- retail price: $5.95 ea
These smooth, bright pencils glide on effortlessly for bold summer eyes. The 4 available shades are reminiscent of the beach and designed to illuminate your look and boost your tan. I like the creamy texture and the ease of blending and application but they do require sharpening and the Royal Blue shade looks more like deep purple. These trendy shadows provide long-lasting color and work best over primer; they are also safe for sensitive eyes and can be used as liners!
Mini Summer Nail Polish- retail price: $2.95 ea
For stunning summer nails Yves Rocher has also added 5 great nail colors to the collection. These little beauties are the ideal size for travel and painting your nails as you lounge on a patio. There is even a crackle effect polish available for those who enjoy nail art.
Many of the colors are also suitable for every season and work well for both manis and pedis. They contain full size, thin brushes that make the polish easy to apply and they dry rather quickly.
Bronzing Powder in 3 earthy shades- retail price: $9.95
I love a good multi-purpose product and this lovely bronzer provides subtle highlight for luminous looking skin. It was designed to work for every skin tone and you can wear each shade individually or all together. The formula is light-weight and although it isn't really suited for contouring and shaping it looks lovely dusted lightly on the cheekbones and along the nose.
Glitter Mascara- retail price: $4.95
If you want your lashes to “shine bright like a diamond” then this golden glittery mascara is for you! The light reflecting non-clump formula illuminates eyes for a dramatic, show-stopping effect and the ingredients are gentle on sensitive eyes. The spiral applicator may not produce ultra thickness but you will get a pop of unique color.
Lip Gloss- retail price $4.95 ea
For me no look is complete without lipstick or gloss, this collection has three shades ranging from subtle, shimmery and bold! My favorite is the Bright Pink with red undertones but if you prefer lighter colors then Golden Beige and Copper Sun also offer luminous shine and wonderful hydration. The formula has a non-sticky gel consistency and is infused with raspberry extract to provide paraben free, pretty color that works well for all complexions.
Overall this collection is gorgeous and for the affordable price the quality is fantastic! If you haven't checked out this line yet I definitely recommend heading to your nearest Yves Rocher store. You can also find the full collection online by clicking HERE
