body care collections, Yves Rocher also released a mini makeup collection featuring eight very shimmery products perfect for the holiday festivities. To see some swatches of the Shimmery Makeup Collection, click.......
Eye Pencil ($5.95 CAD):
These are two adorable shimmery eye shadow crayons. The Green is a pastel baby pink loaded with green shimmers and the silver is a white shimmer. Both shadow sticks are quite soft and I actually had a lot of trouble with the silver one because I could not apply it without the tip breaking off. The formulation is quite creamy but they do smudge and crease.
Glitter Mascara ($4.95 CAD):
This is a fun silver mascara. The product doesn't give much volume or length but if you apply heavily over another mascara, you can get a bit of a shimmery look.
Lip Gloss in "Sparkling Coral" ($4.95 CAD):
This is a fun and simple glitter gloss. Although it looks almost orange in the tube, the gloss actually applies clear with some sparse sprinklings of copperish glitter.
Here are all four products swatched on the arm.

Gloss in "Sparkling Coral" and Glitter Mascara in "Silver"
Included in the collection are four 3ml glitter polishes. There is no indication that these are actually textured polishes but they are! Formulation wise these are pretty amazing, the pink is almost a one-coater! These dried super fast and the finish is gorgeous, I mean just look at that mint and orange!

Sparkling Coral (two coats), Sparkling Green (three coats)
None of the makeup items stood out to me so I say skip those and get all four polishes, the price is very reasonable for the mini sizes and the formulation is amazing. Such a steal!
The Holiday 2014 products will be available online and in stores at Yves Rocher starting November.
