I love using makeup which makes my skin look healthy and glowing and one product I always have in my makeup bag is an illuminating concealer. I have terribly dark under eye circles which I like to cover up and I also like to highlight my cheekbones and bridge of my nose so I like to have a liquid highlighter to do this & have tried quite a few over the years. Most brands have their version of the YSL Touche Clat & I have been using the Yves Rocher take on it.
The Yves Rocher Radiant Youth Corrector Pen* comes in three shades, I have the shade 1 which is a peachy pink colour and this works well to brighten and diffuse the darkness under my eyes. It is by no means a full coverage concealer and when my eyes look particularly dark I like to use my Bobbi Brown corrector as an extra step and use this on top for a little extra coverage.
This has a lovely light creamy formula and is very easy to blend, I apply it using the brush and I like to pat it in using my finger this seems to work well. Once blended your under eye looks smooth and bright. I like that the product is light and doesn’t sink in to my fine lines and lasts well throughout the day. I would say that when I wear it during very warm days I have had to reapply it but thats quite normal and my skin is quite oily and makeup tends to slip off in the heat.
This is also nice to use on the redness around my nose and I like to take it down my nose as the light reflects off & keeps me looking refreshed, it sits well on my skin. So if your skin needs a little help to look refreshed and healthy this offering from Yves Rocher is up to that job. The luxurious gold pen style packaging looks luxurious and the brush applicator is very soft too. To get the product out you just twist the base & one twist dispenses the right amount of product for one eye. Its become a staple in my makeup bag and I’m not one for carrying makeup with me in my handbag (other than lipstick) but I have been throwing this in too & I like to reapply it when I’m looking tired. Its so easy to reapply on the go.
Let me know what you use for that little radiance boost.

I’ve only tried one other product from Yves Rocher and I bought that in Amsterdam, it was their Micellar Water and I really liked it. So I was excited to try their Sexy Pulp Mascara. I have been using it for a good few weeks and been pleasantly surprised. I have to say when I first took the wand out I thought it was going to be far too big & hard to work with, I have quite small eyes and I like to coat every lash & really get in to the corners too and normally can’t use a larger brush, like the Soap & Glory Thick & Fast Mascara (I hated that brush). I seem to have figured out a way of making this large brush work for me.
I’ve poked myself in the eye with this brush on a couple of occasions but I think that’s more because I’m clumsy than anything else. I tend to put my makeup on when I’m still half asleep. This mascara is a very deep intense black, so if you like your mascara on the dark side then you will like this. The brush as I’ve said is very large, it has dense bristles which grab every lash which I like as it makes them very defined.
I stop after one coat mostly for a daytime look that gives me enough volume and I find that I don’t get clumping. If you do want to build this up for a more dramatic look just make sure you take the excess product off the wand as you will get a little clumping (although I know a few people that like that look).
I found the formula easy to work with and once I figured how to use the brush without sticking it in my eye I found it defined my lashes and made them look full however I wouldn’t say this was massively volumizing. It gave my lashes nice length but nothing out of this world, that’s not why I really like this mascara. I like it for the fact it wears all day with no panda eye effect, not flaking or smudging & it separates my lashes which is the look I like.
After wearing this all day I found it easy to remove with my Garnier Micellar Water, so that is always good, I hate it when I remove stubborn mascaras & I pull out lots of lashes.
The packaging is also nice the tube is deep purple with pink writing and although the brush is huge the wand is quite light and the tip is slightly tapered so you can get into the corners so every lash has product on. I have liked using this mascara & even read that its quite a blogger favourite & I can see why.
I think £18 is quite a stretch for this mascara but at 50% off I say stock up while you can. Have you tried this mascara or do you have any recommendations for other Yves Rocher products that I should try?
