Yves Rocher - Création Printemps

Hello there!
In today's blogpost I'm sharing a spring makeup look including products from the Yves Rocher's Création Printemps*. I tried to achieve a fresh look with healthy glowing skin, hope you like it!

The main products of this look are Yves Rocher's Marbled Illuminating Powder in 01 Clair and their Radiant Lip Crayon in Pourpre Lumineux. Both products are part of their spring collection "Création Printemps" which was launched in February. 

Besides looking beautiful in the packaging, this product leaves a gorgeous and healthy glow wherever you use it. I'd describe the colour as champagne with a hint of light pink. There's a second shade available which is slightly darker and more pink toned. 

On a pale face like mine you could even use it as a blush. The shimmer is very subtle so you don't have to be too careful applying it. To be honest I swirl my brush in the marbled powder and apply it generously all over my cheeks. 

As you can see on the photo, it doesn't make my face sparkle like a disco ball but catches up the light nicely. I only had the products for about two weeks and I loved using it whenever my skin looked a little dull, it seems to add light to my skin. 
The Radiant Lip Crayon feels good on my lips, it's not sticky and can even be used on dry lips. It adds enough moisture to wear it without lip balm underneath. 

The Radiant Lip Crayons are available in six shades, this pretty berry red's called Pourpre Lumineux. It's paraben-free, light in texture and looks glossy on the lips. It's not burger-proof, I did the test. You have to reapply the crayon after eating and even though application is easy with this jumbo lip colour, you need a mirror. The pigmentation is surprisingly high for a balm-like lipstick so you have to apply it precisely. 

I really like this shade,  it's red but not too red if you know what I mean. I'd wear this on a normal day, that's what I'm trying to say. 
The Lip Crayon is available for CHF 24, the Marbled Illuminating Powders for CHF 35. 
I like both products but I get more use out of the powder because I don't really have a substitute for it. The colour of the Radiant Lip Crayon is nice but there are a lot of other products like this one on the market which might last longer.
