Yves Rocher - Bohemian Chic Summer


Yves Rocher Bohemian Chic Summer


Yves Rocher always launches the most wonderful makeup collections for summer.
There are some amazing products in this collection, and off course I want to share them with you.
If you like any items in this blogpost, be quick because most of them are limited!


Yves Rocher Bohemian Chic Summer

I already showed you guys the launch of the summer perfume by Yves Rocher here.
But now the makeup collection is up, and it is amazing!
On the picture above you can see the Radiant Lip and Cheek Crayon.
As the name tells us, you can use it on the lips and on the cheeks.

Yves Rocher Bohemian Chic Summer


The colors are very soft and subtle, perfect for a nice summer look.
I also recommend the 'yellow' pencil as a highlight, it is gorgeous!


Yves Rocher Bohemian Chic Summer


Yves Rocher launched some amazing liners as well.
Vertige Felt-Tip Liner is sooooo pigmented, I really was amazed when I swatched them.
I got myself 5 of the colors (anything but black, because I have a lot of black liners).
Soe of them are not the most obvious choices, but they are amazing to create a summer look with.


Yves Rocher Bohemian Chic Summer

As you can see the Felt-Tip Liners are very fine.
You can use them for a small winged eyeliner, but you can also create bolder looks with them.


Yves Rocher Bohemian Chic Summer


Look at these pigmented swatches! How amazing is that!
These swatches are one strike of liner...
I just am speechless...


Yves Rocher Bohemian Chic Summer


To complete your summer look Yves Rocher got me this Vertige mascara.
This is a mascara that provides your lashes from extra length.


Yves Rocher Bohemian Chic Summer

The brush is extremely small and tiny, I had to adjust myself because normally I use big and bold brushes.
It is okay to work with, but I prefer to use some volume mascara.
If length is what you're looking for, than this Vertige mascara might do the trick for you.


Yves Rocher Bohemian Chic Summer


A summer look isn't complete without some bronzing accents.
That's why Yves Rocher also launched this duo sculpting powder.
A lighter color for the entire face, and a darker color to contour with.


Yves Rocher Bohemian Chic Summer

As you can see the lighter color is a little bit too dark for me, but I really ave a porcelaine skin.
The contouring color is really good for almost any skintype, except for my it is just a bit too orange.

Yves Rocher Pure Calmille


After gettting out during summer, it is time to remove makeup in the evening.
And that is where these products come in.
These are some very handy cleansers.
These are all products out the 'Pure Calmille' range.
This range offers your skin some soothing and refreshing skincare.
We can discover a lot by thinking about the name of these products:
CALMille - it calms our skin
CAlMILLE - it contains camille extract


Yves Rocher Pure Calmille

First up is the Pure Calmille Cleansing Gel.
This cleansing gel removes impurities and the leftovers of your makeup that still are on your skin after you took your makeup off.
It has a fresh gel texture that doesn't dry your skin at all.

Yves Rocher Pure Calmille

This product is a 2-in-1 cleanser and toner in the Pure Calmille range.
It removes makeup, but also tones your skin.
It has a milky texture, so it is very soft for your skin.


Yves Rocher Pure Calmille

This is a Pure Calmille Oily Micellair water.
It is a non greasy texture, that remove makeup (even waterproof makeup!)
When you mix this oil with some water, it transforms into a mily texture for a soft feeling on your skin.

Get ready for summer with Essence (and come celebrate Essence's BDay in Berlin?)

Essence make up


Temperatures are rising and we feel that summer is waiting just around the corner.
Today I am showing everything that is extremely budget proof and with all of these products you can create and amazing summer look.
Let's have a look at the Essence products I selected for you.


Essence make up

First u is our skintone.
I got myself a green concealer to cover up my redness and a mattifying foundation by Essence.
I really love the colour correcting range Essence added to their makeup assortiment, I am all about colour correcting and love doing it with a budget brand.


Essence make up

I bought my foundation in shade 010, but still it was too dark for my porcelain skintone.
I really loved the texture and feeling of this foundation.
It doesn't feel dry at all although it is a matte foundation.

Essence make up

Here you can see a small amount of the colour correcting green concealer applied under my eyes.
It really is so nice to use!
It blends out great and really covers the redness you want to get rid of.


Essence make up

Maybe you've heard of it, the new trend is called draping.
What is draping?
Contouring with your blush.
I am a big fan myself.
Contouring was never my thing because of my light skin.
A soft contour mostly looked like dirt on my skin because every contour color was too orange.


Essence make up

Essence is absolutely cool and trendy with this palette.
Essence selected 3 blush shades to do your draping with.
A highlight colour, a sculpting colour and a define colour.

Essence make up


Here you can see the exact results of the 3 blush colours, I really like the blush highlight!


Essence make up


Blush highlight is nice, but I also am an addict of any highlight.
Something i've never tried before was the rainbow highlight because I was afraid of the results by seeing this vivid and bright colours.


Essence make up

 But hey, check that out!
There is no yellow, blue, red,... in this highlight to be seen!
I am so surprised by the effect this gives.
A big wow and a round of applause for Essence!

Essence make up


Another new thing in the Essence range: palettes you can customize yourself.
You take a palette (for 4 or 8 pieces eyeshadow) and you pick the shades you like and you're ready.


Essence make up

I got myself a base colour and an inner corner highlight.
I filled my palette with a soft baby pink colour and a burgundy one.

The colours in this palette are:
05 Cotton Candy
08 Peach-Party!
06 Raspberry Frosting
18 Black as a Berry


Essence make up

Just look at these shades.
How pigmented!
I will definitely buy more shades to make some more palettes.

You can fill your palettes with: eyeshadow, blush, highlight, lipstick, lip base and lip powder.

Essence make up


The next essential for every beauty addict: a volume mascara.
This is a volume mascara that stays onto your lashes extremely good!
This mascara contains lengthening fibers, so I was really curious about trying this mascara.


Essence make up

This mascara does give some extra length to my lashes and a natural volume effect.
What I really like about this mascara that it doesn't feel clumpy or hard on your lashes but it keeps your lashes really soft.

Essence make up

 Another product I just had to try out, the Essence cushion eyeliner.
Nowadays there are a lot of cushion products: blush, foundation,...
So why not trying an eyeliner with this formula?
It really feels very soft, but I prefer using I liquid eyeliner like I always did.
I guess it is just a habit?

Essence make up

OMG, that's exactly what I thought hen I unpacked these gorgeous lipglosses.
This are the shine, shine, shine wet look lipglosses and I am all about shine and gloss so this is a perfect match for me.
I got myself bold colours because I really like pigmented glosses and I just had to try these out.


Essence make upEssence make up


The glosses are really pigmented and wow they smell amazing (and the taste is yummy too!).
I am really satisfied and these glosses are one of my daily favorites now.


Essence make up

Next up: a 'fade your shade' lipstick.
I LOOOOVVVEEE THIS!
I made an ombre lip with this fade your shade stick and the red gloss mentioned above and the result is simply gorgeous.

Essence make up


You can use this lipstick to create ombre lips but even bitten lips or other trends made with multiple lipstick shades can be created with this stick.


Essence make up

And off course nail polish is an essential during the summer.
You're wearing flip flops, the toes are out,...
I have 3 shades that I really like.
A glow&Care nailpolish with a soft redish colour.
A pearl nailpolish that fits every clothing style and colour.
And a bold blue nailpolish.



What is your favourite product in my summer list?
What are your Essence essentials?



Essence is soon turning 15 years old, and is giving a HUGE birthday part in Berlin.

Budgetproof Spring makeup with Catrice

Catrice Shoplog


As you guys know, I normally post a new blogpost on Wednesdays and Sundays.
I know today is Monday and I am posting.

Why?

Because I got this amazing package by Catrice and I was too excited to not share it with you.
This package contains everything you need to create the perfect spring look!
And best of all, it is budget proof!
So here we go.


Catrice Shoplog

The first thing I got myself really is a makeup essential.
A nice foundation that offers you the perfect coverage without being too cakey.
Nude Illusion foundation by Catrice is a matte foundation but still gives a natural effect to your skin.
This foundation has an UVA and UVB filter so you're also protected while wearing this foundation.


Catrice nude illusion foundation

As you can see on this picture, I applied the foundation to the right half of my face.
It is the perfect color for me (010) and makes my skin looks even and flawless.
I really think this foundation looks natural and it doesn't feel too dry on my skin.


Catrice lumiere eyeshadow

Next product I got is also an essential for me: some nice eyeshadow.
As some of you might know, I have extremely blue eyes.
To make them pop I like to use some more vivid colors (not only black and brown).

In the Catrice range this Lumière eyeshadow really caught my eye.
Tt is not green, not blue, not ..., it is just perfect.
It is such an amazingly gorgeous color so I had to have it.

Catrice Shoplog


When using eyeshadow I also like to use a kohl pencil that matches the eyeshadow.
For this look I got myself a kohl kajal by Catrice in a 'brownish' shade.
Another must-have for me is a highlighter pen. 
This highlighter pen really is (as its name says) made to stay.
I like using this highlighter pen as an eyeshadow as well.
You should really try it, it is beautiful.


Catrice Shoplog


On my arm here you can see swatches from the 3 upper products:
Lumière eyeshadow, highlighter pen and the kohl kajal.


Catrice lip smoother


Of course a look isn't complete without doing your lips.
I will show you 2 different kinds of lip products.

First up is this beautifying lip smoother.
It is a balm with a soft touch of color that really makes your lips pop out makes them glossy.

Catrice lip smoother


The applicator is a sponge applicator.
You just squeeze softly on the tube and then you see the product popping up and it is ready to use.


Catrice lip smoother

Here you can see a swatch of the beautifying lip smoother on my lips.
It doesn't feel sticky at all so it is really nice to wear.


Catrice lip dresser

Next up is the Catrice Lip Dresser Shine Stylo.
As the name tells us, this is a stylo to put on your lips.
This product has more coverage than the lip smoother mentioned mentioned above.

As you can see I got myself color 040, which is a beautiful pink/red color.

Catrice lip dresser


This lip product is a stylo.
At the back of this pencil, there is a small button you can push so the lipstick comes out.
WATCH OUT!
Do not overly push that button because the lipstick can't be inserted again.
Once it is out, it stays out.


catrice lip dresser

Here you can see me wearing the lip dresser shine stylo by Catrice.


Catrice gel lacquer

To finish the look I got myself some nail polishes in the same color as the lipstick.
Your nails alays are the finishing touch to complete a look so this is also a must-have when you go shopping for a complete makeup look.
The left nail polish is a gel lacquer that can be used without a lamp.


Catrice Nude Illusion Foundation - € 7,59
Catrice Made to Stay Highlighter Pen - € 3,89
Catrice Lumière Eyeshadow - € 3,99
Catrice Kohl Kajal - € 1,99
Catrice Beautifying Lip Smoother- € 3,59
Catrice Lip Dresser - € 4,99
Catrice Gel Lacquer - € 2,99
Catrice Soft Blossom Nail Polish - € 2,99
