Yves Rocher: Retropical Party ~ #Review

Yves Rocher has launched a whole new makeup collection called Retropical which will remind you of a retro pin-up summer with colours of reds, oranges, pinks, blues, and greens.  The makeup collection is inspired by paradise and is filled with flamboyant colours, and warm light fragrances.

The colours are so vibrant that they reminds me of Hawaii or somewhere tropical.

Looking for a lovely and fresh scent for this summer.  Try the Retropical Eau de Toilette (75ml, $25).  It is light, floral and has a fruity scent for any occasion.  During the summer I like to wear something that is light and not heavy so I could see myself wearing this fragrance often this season.

I hardly wear lip gloss because usually I don't like it sticking to my loose hair.  It is messy and uncomfortable.  However the Retropical Gloss (4.5ml, $4.95) is amazing, really!  I love how vibrant the colour is and it is non sticky.  After a few hours of wearing it it is still as vibrant as when I first put it on.  I really like the applicator, it is like a lip brush.  A+ in my books.

I have quite a few eye pencils but they are all the same old black, brown, or white.  This time I had the opportunity to try Retropical Eye Pencil in Eucalyptus (3.25g $5.95) and the Retropical Duo Khol pencil in Tropical Mint/Bougainvilles  (0.52g, $4.95).  The Retropical Eye Pencil in Eucalyptus could be used as a kohl or an eyeshadow which I love how pretty it looked on my eyes.  It goes on smoothly and very easy to use.  I love how this green shade looks on my Asian complexion.  OK ladies I feel like hitting the beach!  Who is with me?

  5. Which are the colours in the second picture? The eyeliners?

    1. The purple and green liners seem to be the Tropical Mint / Bougainvillea khol duo. The blue liner is Eucalyptus but as its a chubby pencil seems it works well as a shadow also.

  6. This is totally my kind of stuff. I enjoy being fruity and vibrant all year round.
