We were blessed with a super warm Thanksgiving yesterday but that didn't last. The rain comes back today and everything is grey. At least my eyeliners are colourful.
I was recently sent the brand new product at Yves Rocher this year - the Botanical Color eye pencils, enriched with Carnauba wax, 100% from botanical origin. With traditional pen format that needs sharpening, creamy texture and 14 quite pigmented colours, the line has a lot to offer.
The first 7: Black, Artemisia Grey, Brown, Peony Plum, Iris Purple, Berry Nude and Violet Blue.
Peony Plum is a great Fall shade, strong plum base with similar metallic sheen as seen in Brown. Iris Purple is a lilac, with a bit harder texture and a satin finish. Berry Nude is a very light nude with glitters which I opt to use in the inner corner, and Violet Blue is not violet but a darkened navy with aqua shimmers.
The last 2 are matte: Lemon is that beautiful matte yellow that I always wanted, and Orangey-red (wish it had a more creative name) is a slightly-burnt orange.
The pencils are 0.04oz/ 1.2g, $15 each (on sale for $8.30 at the moment).
