Yves Rocher Summer Creation 2015 Collection Roundup: Review and Swatches
Hi everyone! Today I have a quick roundup of the Yves Rocher Summer Creation Collection. This fun, limited edition range features some beautiful polishes and lip crayons, both of which I have reviewed last week. Additionally, the collection has a couple of interesting cheek products and a fresh, citrus-y summer fragrance. To see some swatches, click.......

Healthy Glow Effect Blush
Healthy Glow Effect Blush ($9.95 CAD):
A sheer roll-on liquid stain, the Healthy Glow Effect Blush has a water-based formulation similar to that of Benefit Benetint, but more viscous. It blends nicely on the skin but it takes a bit long to dry. The cherry red color is very, very sheer, so unless you have pale skin, I don't think it will show up very well.

Bronzing Powder ($9.95 CAD):
This is a marbled baked highlighting bronzer. With a mix of dark pink, pale pink, and light bronze, the powder blends into a very light and very shimmery baby pink. In fact, I consider this more of a highlighter than a bronzer. The formulation is smooth and pigmented, a little goes a long way!

Nail Lacquers ($6 CAD):
With eight new summer shades, the Summer Creation nail polishes vary in terms of formulation. Some were pigmented one-coaters, others sheer nudes. To see some swatches and detailed review of the four shades below, check out my previous post.

Bleu Vegetal (Botanical Blue) Eau de Toilette ($29 CAD):
A fresh summer fragrance with notes of jasmine and bergamot, Botanical Blue is very fun and fresh with a nice balance of floral and citrus. Unfortunately, the scent doesn't last very long.
I was a bit disappointed that the bottle is in fact the same as that of last year's fragrance, with the only difference of the cap being blue versus yellow.

Overall:
This collection has a really lovely theme and the packaging is stunning. My recommendations would be the Radiant Lip Crayons and the highlighting powder. Both feature a beautiful formulation at an affordable price.
