France's no. 1 selling beauty brand Yves Rocher have launched new makeup products to create the perfect smokey eye. They have 6 eyeshadow quads including Deep Grey, Red Hot Brown and what I have here, Brilliant Green. The new Fixing Eye Primer creates a smooth and flawless base with Camellia Oil. The black Kajal Liner is so rich in pigment to easily create that smoked out look. The Volume Vertige Mascara has a patented Reservoir Brush that allows easy application of mascara. I've used all three products in this makeup look and individual reviews to follow below.
Starting off with the Yves Rocher Eyeshadow Quad in Brilliant Green, this beautiful quad of emerald green shades has all the greens you need. They all have soft velvety textures. It has a pale silver shade with sparkles and hints of green, two shimmery shades - an emerald green and a darker more shimmery moss green, and a matte seaweed green which I am in love with. It has a fabulous feel and pigmentation a lot like the matte2 finishes from MAC.

Next up is the Yves Rocher Intense Kajal 100% in Black. This is my first experience of kajal pencils and I'm surprised at how easy it is to use. The point is surprisingly soft and deposits an easy buildable grey-black pigment. It feels glides nicely on the waterline too. Downside is that it smudges easily and requires setting with eyeshadow on top to make it last longer. I would avoid using this on the lower lashline as you wouldn't want it migrating down south.

Lastly is the Yves Rocher Volume Vertige Mascara. This mascara lengthens, volumises and separates the lashes providing a shiny finish. It holds a curl pretty well. It doesn't smudge and lasts pretty long. This does not volumise as much as my current favourite Bourjois, but it clumps less and provides natural looking lashes for daily use.
