So I have a new favourite beauty brand, and in usual whatemmadid.com style, I of course share it with you all. Firstly, I am over the moon that Yves Rocher actually retails a lipstick in the exact shade of red that I love – that kind of cool orangey type of red that you don’t see very often. I used to use one from No.7 religiously, until in became discontinued, and I never found one that replicated the look I loved. However, I was made aware of Yves Rocher and have been wearing the beautiful Moisturising Cream lipstick in Orange Muscade and as soon as I put in on, all the old memories of my favourite trusty red lipstick came flooding back. I literally can’t express to you all how happy I am!
For those not familiar with the brand, Yves Rocher is an international brand available in a range of countries from France, Netherlands, Belgium, Austria and of course the UK just to name a small few. Originating from France, Mr Yves Rocher set up the company in 1959, with the mantra of making beauty through plants accessible to all women. The company even has its own botanical garden in La Gacilly where they grow more than 1100 species of plant used in their products. The brand is actually sold in 88 countries worldwide, with more than 30 million customers and has just been voted the 4th favourite brand in the world. They have a real commitment to sustainable development and caring for the environment too, which is always a lovely element to a beauty brand in this day and age. Running successfully for 50 years, it is a brand built on trust by focusing on active molecules, effective formulas and textures that arouse the senses. Botanical Beauty is a profession, which therefore is the Yves Rocher profession.
I currently own three incredible products from the brand, and can’t believe I wasn’t overly aware of them before. I suspect Yves Rocher is going to absolutley storm into the UK beauty market, so do try and remember this name now! So I obviously already raved about the Moisturising Cream lipstick, which as well as it’s perfect shade, also provides an easy glide on formula which adds a subtle shine and gloss to lips, as well as providing moisturising properties. It’s such a creamy lipstick and lasts for ages too! I find I can go a good few hours before feeling like I need to re-apply.
I have also been wearing the Flowerparty by Night Yves Rocher Eau de Parfum, which is a deliciously scented night time fragrance with bitter almond essential oil, star anise and bourbon vanilla absolute extracts.It has a really deep, sultry scent perfect for those weekend evenings. The bottle is also beautifully designed – classic dark navy glass with a pretty floral designed lid. It is also currently retailing for £19 which is really good value for a fragrance that not only looks luxury, but smells it too!
Yves Rocher also have a brilliant Lash Plumping Mascara which comes in the cutest bold pink packaging. It contains soothing cornflower water and comes as a waterproof mascara to plump and define eyelashes. The black colour that I own is great – it works fantastic for both day and night.
These shots are due to not being able to contain my excitement at owning my favourite lipstick colour again! I am also wearing the mascara along with very little facial make up so you can see the effects. Truly in love with this brand!
