Yves Rocher Blackberry Silky Lotion Review

Regular readers may know that I am the biggest fan of blackberry scented beauty products. I adore Blackberry (Mure Sauvage) range from Yves Rocher ever since one of my friends got me the spray about 8 years ago. I  also love Jo Malone’s Blackberry and Bay cologne, it is truly one of my favourites.

This is why I’ve decided to get myself a blackberry scented body lotion from Yves Rocher last week.

Body creams, lotions, butters  and oils are my thing, I have tonnes of them in my bathroom. But this is the one I have been using everyday ever since I’ve bought it. And let me tell you why.

It has a light texture which is exactly what you want during the summer heat. It melts into the skin, leaving it feeling moisturized (it contains sweet almond oil and shea butter) and

My favourite red lipstick  at the moment? Bourjois  Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick in 01 Personne Ne Rouge.

Why?

It has a pretty cool design, and the applicator makes it easy to use the product and, I find, that is goes on smoothly and evenly.

The formula is great. It feels light  and non-greasy on the lips. You can apply one layer for a lightly-stained effect or several – for an intense colour pay-off. It takes some time to set but when it is set – it has that nice matte  finish which is not flat of lifeless, like some matte.

I also like the fact that even

I am loving the lipsticks that come in a form of a lip pencil, as they are easy to apply and you don’t need any extra liners or brushes for that. The other day I’ve picked up Maybelline’s ColorDrama Intense Velvet Lip Pencil.

They had so many beautiful colours but 310 Berry Much is the one that stood out for me, this is a very “me” shade. I was actually shopping with a friend who bought the nude one.

I think this is a fantastic product for the price.  The pigmentation is excellent, the colour pay-off is amazing, the colour is gorgeous.

As for the finish, it is just spot-on! It is not a flat matte but, at the same time, not a sheer glossy shade. I’d describe it as

I have already reviewed several shades of Max Factor Colour Elixir Lipsticks in the past and you can see the feature here, and this is the latest addition to the range. Meet 725 Simply Nude – smoky eyes best friend.

The lipstick comes in a gold packaging with a colour matching panel on the bottom.

It is a moisturizing and a fool-proof lipstick formula that glides on easily and  smoothly. Colour Elixir contains shea, avocado, aloe butters, and anti-oxidant white tea so it feels comfortable and non-drying on the lips.

It is really low-maintenance.  I think you could apply it even without mirror, and since it has that “glossy” lightweight texture and finish, it looks good, as it wears off. And this kind of nude  would look nice on a lot of skin tones, as
