Yves Rocher is a brand I think many of us have heard of, I always remember my Mum loving their fragrances when I was younger its a brand I associate with being beautiful and chic. I have 3 products to share with you today which will help you transform from work to Christmas party ready in a flash and they are all from Yves Rocher.
When it comes to Christmas parties, many of them take place straight after work leaving you very little time to get ready. You really don’t want to be lugging your whole make up bag with you to work and then out to play, so today I’ve 3 products which will help you get ready for that Christmas party fast and will fit in most hand bags too!
You cannot go to the Christmas party without applying some scent first. Fragrance says a lot about someone I think and its one of my top 3 things I cannot leave the house without applying first. An Eau De Parfum is a great option for a Christmas party, being more concentrated you need only a quick spritz and that should be enough to get you through the night.
Flowerparty By Night from Yves Rocher is a delicious mix of sophisticated and sexy all in a beautiful bottle. I fell in love with the bottle of this fragrance as soon as I saw it and have to say, the fragrance is really beautiful too.
Flowerparty By Night fragrance notes include Liquorish, Almond and Vanilla. Its very unique and nothing like any other fragrance I have. I would say this fragrance is suitable for all year around but best warn in the evening as it may be too heady for the day.
Being available in a 50ml bottle and with a nice price tag too, Flowerparty By Night is the perfect fragrance to be slipping into your hand bag for that special occasion.
The second product you are going to need is a great lipstick! I think with a Christmas party you really do want to step out of your comfort zone a little and a bright lipstick can be perfect for just that. Firstly the Moisturising Cream Lipsticks from Yves Rocher are super hydrating. The formula reminds me of a lip butter with more pigmentation.
The pigmentation on the lips is a wash of colour without being over powering, so great for those shy of colour or who are not comfortable wearing lipstick. I loved that this lipstick intensified the more I applied it to my lips and after a few swipes with the bullet, my lips were a beautiful rich orange red – perfect for the Christmas season.
Lastly you have got to make those lashes look amazing and I’ve something really special to share with you. If you know my blog at all, you will know I am a mascara junkie, I am also VERY particular with mascara formulas and I want a lot from my mascara. I was completely blown by the Lash Plumping Mascara from Yves Rocher and hopefully the picture will show you why.
Finding a mascara that is very black, build-able and that also gives you good length and volume can be a really tall order. However, I think Yves Rocher have cracked it with their Waterproof Lash Plumping Mascara. I got amazing length after 2 coats, it holds my curl, gives me volume, my lashes look black and intense and because of the great volume I got I didn’t even need to apply eye liner! Being waterproof means it should last you through your Christmas party effortlessly and after 6 hours wear I found I had no smudging, panda eyes or transference either! The formula is lovely to work with, the brush looks to be a nylon fibre style spooly, so will suit most mascara addicts and best of all, its on half price at £9.25, so less that many drugstore/pharmacy ones! I would liken this mascara to the closest I’ve come to false lashes and that really is saying something and if I were to liken it to another mascara I would say They’re Real! is pretty close, but this formula and brush are much better! I will definitely be repurchasing this mascara, as it was really love at first sight (Or should that be lashes?).
So there you have it, 3 products to pop in your hand bag and get you ready for your Christmas party. I have been really impressed trying these products out and especially loved the mascara (After all, my lashes look amazing!).
Lots of Love,
