Aren't you glad it is a long weekend, having an extra day to recharge before the kids start school?
I don't normally post on a holiday, but I couldn't wait to tell you about a brand new lipstick line that quickly becomes one of my favorites - Yves Rocher Sheer Botanical lipsticks, available this month!
Yes they are sheer, but have better pigmentation than most other sheer lipsticks, and the formula is one of the best I have tried!
Formulated with cherry oil (rich in Omega 6 and 9) that gives the product the shine and the smooth feeling on the lips, these lipsticks are such a treat to the lips. And the light candy scent is an added bonus.
The shades I received, from L-R: 12 Frosted Chestnut (Marron Glace), 22 Soft Coral (Corail Doux), 42 Bright Pink (Rose Vif), 51 Red Currants (Rouge Groseille), 52 Black Cherry (Cerise Noire) and 61 Tangerine.
I included the French names as they are what appear on the labels at the bottom of the bullets, for easy reference.
Frosted Chesnut is a brown nude, an every day shade. Also great to top up any liner for shine.
Soft Coral is exactly as the name suggests, adds a light hint of coral to the lips.
Bright Pink is a fuchsia pink, slightly more pigmented than the first two.
I reach for this group of colours on those lazy days for makeup, or when I need to gloss up a matte lip. They are so comfortable to wear that I sometimes forget I have them on.
Red Currants (left) and Tangerine (right) are quite similar. The former has more red, the latter has more coral tone in the colour and is a bid darker than Soft Coral above.
Black Cherry is the plum version of Bright Pink, also the most creamy and pigmented (and my most favorite) among all 6 shades. But I can't play favorites for long, as I have been rotating them all through the week with or without lip liners, then repeat :)
The line has 12 shades in total, 0.12oz/ 3.5g each, retail for $17 but are on sale right now for $9.50. Stay tuned for a few FOTDs featuring these.
