Yves Rocher Beige Doré Eyeshadow: All-Over-The-Lid Champagne Gold
Whether you're a makeup beginner or a seasoned artist, a pigmented, shimmery golden champagne eyeshadow should be a makeup must-have. I have my fair share of iridescent beige shadows but Yves Rocher's Beige Doré is quickly becoming one of my staples.
The eyeshadow is encased in a simple plastic compact with a clear window for you to easily see the shade. For the retail price of $14 you receive 1 ounce of eyeshadow which is about double the amount in a Mac or Urban Decay eyeshadow. The retail price is a bit high for Yves Rocher but the brand frequently does sales and you can easily score the shadow for about half price.
Yves Rocher claims that the shadows contain bamboo and silica extract but I'm not quite sure what benefits they entail besides an extra marketing point. The website also states that the shadows can wear for six hours although I have fared at least eight with an eyeshadow primer.
Like the previous Yves Rocher eyeshadow duo I reviewed, in Prune and Powdery Taupe, Beige Doré was impressive in terms of pigmentation and smoothness. This eyeshadow is lovely swept all across the lids and into the tear ducts as it brightens the lid without being glittery or over the top. The color and formula make it a no-fuss product that performs well. The brand is not really well known in the states, probably because they are only found online, which is a shame as they do some really nice products. I highly recommend the Yves Rocher eyeshadows, especially this shade, during a sale as the quality is fantastic.
