Yves Rocher Grand Rouge in Bright Red

Yves Rocher Grand Rouge in Bright Red* - £19, available here

I thought I'd found my perfect red lip in my YSL Rouge Volupte lipstick, so when I got this lipstick from Yves Rocher in my #BrumBloggerMeet goody bag, I didn't try it straight away. It wasn't until I was on my way to work and found this was the only lipstick in my make up bag, that I decided to try it. I honestly can't believe it took me so long!

Yves Rocher isn't a brand that I've tried before, although I had heard about the mascaras. I didn't realise that they are in fact a completely natural and organic brand based in France. I was also surprised at how much this lipstick cost, I liked it so much that I thought I'd have a look online at the other colours and was shocked to find that it's £19! The price completely reflects the quality though.

"A long wearing lipstick with an exceptional smooth application in a refined pink-gold case. A texture that goes on like a second skin,creamy and moisturising for an inimitable sensation."

The lipstick is so easy to apply, I never need to apply a lipliner beforehand like I do with the YSL one. It glides on so smoothly and only needs one coat for an opaque bright red. It stays on my lips all day without the need for a touch up unless I've eaten something really greasy. It applies slightly glossy but soon dries down to a matte finish without drying my lips out at all. When it starts to wear away, it leaves a red stain behind so you don't end up with that tell-tale red ring around your lips which some lipsticks can leave. As well as having a fantastic long-lasting formula, the lipstick also smells gorgeous, like sweets which is always a bonus as far as I'm concerned.

This lipstick is now one of my most worn as it's so easy to apply and lasts all day. I've had a lot of compliments on it each time I've worn it and there's nothing like a red lipstick to make you feel classy! Now I've tried this, I definitely want to try out more from the range.


  1. I'm not going to pretend I know a lot about beauty products because I really don't. But this lipstick sounds great, the colour is lovely and really suits you! Xx

  2. Hi Hayley, I am the PR for Yves Rocher that supplied the lipsticks at your blogger meet up.I'm glad you like Grand Rouge. I thought I would let you know that products are often on half price on the Yves Rocher website so just keep checking and buy the products you like when they are reduced. There are also cheaper lipsticks on the site but Grand Rouge is a premium product that rivals the likes of YSL. Best wishes, Melissa.
