This post is still part of my haul from a French skincare company with surprisingly affordable prices, Yves Rocher. I never tried their makeup line so when I saw this hard-to-resist winter flash sale a few days before Christmas (some at 50% off) I hurriedly clicked add to cart button.
It’s not cream but fluid babe! ~ Frosted /Metallic Eyeshadow
I got these eyeshadows for only $2.50 each (originally $5). The tube is made out of plastic, has a doe- foot applicator, and is packed with 4ml (0.13 fl. oz) worth of product. Promoted by Yves Rocher as winter must-haves, Taupe is for daytime and Noir (dark blue) for evening wear.

The Good: This fluid eyeshadow blends easily with average staying power (4-5 hrs.), especially when sandwiched with an eye primer (before) and dry eyeshadow (after). Since it’s in fluid formula, it can also function as an eyeliner, regardless whether you use a bent, angled or thin eyeliner brush. Lastly, Yves Rocher doesn’t test on animals so this beauty is certified cruelty-free.
The Bad: Available in only two shades, aha! Also, it tends to lose the metallic or frosted finish when you blend with a brush or finger. It’s too “fluid or wet” for my lid’s standards.
In a nutshell, I like Yves Rocher’s other products but I’m not impressed with these eyeshadows. Nope, moi won’t buy these two again. Nevah!.
