Yves Rocher Eyebrow Pencil and Bronzer and Shimmer Powder Duo

Now, I don't want you guys to go off thinking that Yves Rocher is exclusively a skincare brand. It does have a few nice makeup products, you know! I have an Yves Rocher Eyebrow Pencil as well as the Bronzer and Shimmer Powder Duo which I will talk about today.

The Yves Rocher Bronzer and Shimmer Powder Duo (P680) is a lovely combination of matte contouring powder and a shimmery, apricot bronze shade. You can use them separately - shimmer as highlight and the matte powder to shape your cheekbones - but you can also use them together as a bronzer.

I really like the texture and color payoff, although I do wish that it would stay on longer. As it is it's something you have to retouch if you will be out all day.

Still, this compact duo has two great shades that flatter morena, yellow-toned skin, so that's already a deal-maker forme.

Next, the Yves Rocher Eyebrow Pencil (P480)! I like it. It stays on all day and doesn't give me weird, too-dark eyebrows. I appreciate the spoolie at the end because it makes the eyebrow blending and the grooming easier, since it has rounded edges that work with the contours of the brow. 

I'd like to try another shade though because I prefer a sort of light blonde-brown shade to slightly lighten my brows. The shade I have is, Ash Blonde, ashy brown which I think is more appropriate for darker women.

Sorry about the web cam pic! It's the only one I have where I'm wearing this. 

I still love my Shu Uemura eyebrow pencil, but when I'm in a major rush and don't have time to blend and layer powder on top of my brows, I go for this YR one! I can do my brows with this in under 30 seconds.

And that's it! Those are the Yves Rocher makeup that I use. :D Tried any yet?

You can find Yves Rocher in SM North EDSA and Southmall.
