FOTD: Yves Rocher

Sunday, 13 April 2014

I have received a bunch of makeup products from Yves Rocher in order to create a makeup look and give my honest opinion about them. Me and nine other Slovenian bloggers will then have a little competition on Facebook - makeup look with most 'likes' will win even more goodies (you can vote here)! Though I have to apologise in advance - the pictures are next to crap since, I've said it before and I'll say it again, I do not cope well with deadlines (I basically had to put this together in a week)!



[SLO] Yves Rocher mi je v zameno za iskreno mnenje in makeup look poslal cel kup izdelkov, nato pa se bomo skupaj z devetimi blogerkami potegovale še za dodatnih nekaj dobrot - zmagovalni makeup look bo izbran na podlagi Facebook všečkov (glasujete lahko tukaj). Se pa moram že vnaprej opravičiti za precej slabe fotografije, kot sem rekla že neštetokrat, resnično se ne spopadam dobro z roki (vse to sem skupaj morala spraviti praktično v enem tednu). 



I primed my face with their Perfect Primer (#Apricot Complexion), which smooths my face and gives a teensy bit of coverage even - perfect to wear on its own during those hot summer days! I can't really speak for prolonging the wear of my foundation or keeping me oil-free, I'll need to test it out a bit more. I continued with Youthful Glow liquid foundation (#100 Beige), which is a purr-fect colour match for me, I've never had a foundation shade this accurate. It indeed gives a youthful glow to your complexion and the finish is just amazing, although I have to point out it kind of cakes up after a short while (or should I say disappears only in certain places, making you look a bit odd close up) - it's nothing majorly noticeable, but you know, it doesn't pass the thorough 'blogger inspection'. 

[SLO] Najprej sem nanesla Perfect Primer (#Apricot Complexion), ki lepo zgladi površino kože in celo da pikico prekrivnosti - popolno za vroče poletne dni namesto pudra! Ne morem govoriti o podaljševanju nosljivosti celotnega makeupa ali preprečevanju sijočega noska, za trden odgovor ga bom morala še malo bolj preizkusiti. Nadaljevala sem z Youthful Glow tekočim pudrom (#100 Beige), ki je naravnost popoln odtenek zame. Resnično podari mladosten sijaj in ima čudovit finiš, čeprav sem opazila, da čez čas nekako izgine na določenih mestih, kar se sicer na hitro ne opazi, ampak seveda vsaka blogerka podrobno preuči stanje makeupa vsakih 30min, in takrat se to definitivno opazi. 


Next thing was a Velvet Finish Loose Powder (#Translucent Beige), which gives an amazing airbrushed, matte look on it's own, but if you actually use it with the puff that it comes with, it's just perfect! The last face products was a Natural Blush (#Apricot Medium Complexion), which is highly pigmented, but you can't possibly overdo it, due to the shade being so natural looking. Perfect for blush beginners like me!

[SLO] Naslednji korak je bil Žameten Puder v prahu (#Translucent Beige), ki podari čudovit, 'fotošopiran', mat finiš že sam po sebi, če pa ga uporabljate skupaj z bombažno blazinico, ki pride zraven, pa je popoln. Zadnji izdelek za obraz je bilo Naravno Rdečilo (#Apricot Medium Complexion) s super pigmentacijo, vendar ga nikakor ne morete nanesti 'preveč', saj je odtenek zelo nežne, naravne barve. Popolno za blush začetnike, kot sem sama. 


Moving on to the eyes - I put Intense Colour Single Eyeshadow (#Rose the Mat) all over my lid to even everything out and not disturb the eyeshadows that followed. I put a skin-like eyeshadow all over my eyes every single time I do my makeup, so having this (really nicely pigmented) extra one in my stash is great. Next I opted for a kind of 'smoky day eye' using Intense Colour Eyeshadow Duo (#Plum and Powdered Taupe) which isn't out of this world, but decently pigmented and I think it would work especially great for colder months.

[SLO] Na vsti so oči - čez celo veko sem nanesla Intense Colour Mono senčilo (#Rose the Mat), da so senčila, ki so sledila, imela bolj enakomerno podlago in prišla bolj do izraza. Tega koraka ne izpustim nikoli, zato je tale (super pigmentirana) senčka resnično dobrodošel dodatek k moji kolekciji. V nadaljevanju sem se odločila za nekakšen 'dnevni smokey eye', za katerega sem uporabila Intense Colour Dvojno senčilo (#Plum and Powdered Taupe), ki sicer ni nič ekstravagantnega, ima pa solidno pigmentacijo in bi še posebej primerno bilo za hladnejše mesece.


The mascara I used is their Sexy Pulp Ultra Volume Mascara (#Black), which I've already raved about, and I still love it - if gives me volume, length and even curl. The only thing is, it kind of transfers on my brow bone after a while, but that at the same time means it's super easy to remove.

[SLO] Maskara, katero sem uporabila je Sexy Pulp Ultra volumen maskara (#Black), katero sem na tem blogu že pohvalila in jo še vedno obožujem - da mi volumen, dolžino, še celo priviha mi jih. Edini minus, ki sem ga opazila, je, da se mmi čez čas nekako prenese na zgornjo veko, kar pa obenem pomeni tudi da se super lahko odstranjuje.


On my lips I'm wearing their Grand Rouge Lipstick (#Incandescent Coral), which I expected to be much more subtle, but it's a gorgeous orangey red shade nevertheless; the pigmentation is just amazing. I didn't use many other things for this makeup look - only a black pencil eyeliner and the brow set you could see here.

[SLO] Na ustnicah nosim Grand Rouge Lipstick (#Incandescent Coral), za katero sem pričakovala, da bo veliko bolj umirjenega odtenka, ampak je kljub temu čudovita oranžno-rdeča z neverjetno pigmentacijo. Za ta makeup look nisem uporabila veliko drugih izdelkov, le črn svinčnik za oči in set za obrvi, ki ste ga lahko videli že tukaj



I will keep testing these products out and then put together another post with more thorough reviews of my absolute favourites. Another thing - all of these products have an amazing scent to them - not all are identical, but everything is scented. It makes applying really pleasant, though it might bother people with a pet peeve for gentle ingredients/unscented products might not like it. Until then, do let me know how you like it and make sure to vote for your favourite blogger here!

[SLO] Nadaljevala bom z preizkušanjem teh izdelkov in vam kasneje podrobneje predstavila moje najljubše. Še ena stvar, ki bi jo rada omenila: vsi ti izdelki imajo čudovit vonj; sicer ne vsi enakega, ampak vsi zelo lepo dišijo, kar naredi nanašanje ličil mnogo prijetnejše. To morda edino ne bi bilo povšeči ljudem, ki so zelo občutljivi kar se tiče sestavin in/ali pristaši neparfumiranih izdelkov. Do naslednjič pa v komentarjih pustite svoje mnenje o tem makeup looku in pa seveda glasujte za svojega najljubšega tukaj!
