Yves Rocher Sheer Botanical Lipsticks With 100% Cherry Oil

I LOVE cherries. I could eat them every day. I could eat them every way. I would eat them in a boat! And I would eat them with a goat… And I will eat them in the rain.
And in the dark. And on a train. And in a car. And in a tree. They are so good so good you see! (Dr. Seuss, you were my favourite POET dude)

So when I found out that the new Yves Rocher Sheer Botanical Lipsticks were made with 100% Cherry Oil? Excited! Cherry Oil has loads of shine people! And Light Refraction power too. That’s physics. Not my forte, but I did take Nuclear Science courses, so PHYSICS IS FUN and I LIKED it. Cherry Oils also add this sublime texture that just melts onto your lips, so that’s what these Yves Rocher Sheer Botanical Lipsticks with 100% Cherry Oil do! You get glossy colour with pretty good pigmentation that makes your lips feel oh so GOOD.

The packaging is nice, nothing special. But the lipsticks are so fine! There are 12 shades to choose from, and all are inspired by nature. I have six to show you, so let’s get going!

Yves Rocher Sheer Botanical Lipsticks with 100% Cherry Oil are sheer, but with a couple of swipes you get pretty great pigmentation as you can see.

Nice, huh? I like em! They don’t really last that long on the lips though-over an hour tops. But wow they feel good. Like a lip balm! And I love the way my lips feel when I wear them. And I really don’t mind reapplying them. I’d rather wear lipsticks that feel GOOD, rather than lipsticks that last a long time but dry my lips out. Personal preference is what it comes down to. And I really adore these Yves Rocher Sheer Botanical Lipsticks With 100% Cherry Oil.

Today is THE DAY. The day I leave Marky at college in California. The big goodbye. It’s going to be so hard. I’m going to try not to cry like an idiot. It’s the LAST thing she needs right now. I know she’ll be fine, and eventually I’ll be fine-it’s just the letting go biz that’s so hard. GUYS. I’m gonna be a mess the whole car ride home I know it. If I don’t post anything here for a few days, you’ll know why… 🙁

*products sent by the lovely PR, thoughts are mine as always!

  • This look gorgeous! I’m a sucker for cherries too, so I can imagine how heavenly they’d be in a lip balm form. Good luck with the big transition- I know it’s a hard one, but is exciting too! xo

    • Cherries rock!
      I’m trying! It’s hard. She’s having a rough time now. Might have to go back sooner than I thought.

  • Jaa

    Hey Tracy! I’m new here! ^_^ First of all, I like the opening of this post where you confessed your love for cherries. LOL!

    Rose has to be my favorite here but the formula only lasts an hour? Errm…hmm…. let me think about it for a minute. ;D

    I’m not 100% sure but I assume Marky is your daughter? Oh it must be really hard for you. I’ve been in the same situation (I was the daughter) and the day my mom dropped me off she pretended to be really mad at me (for no reason) so that it would be easier for her to leave. Once she’s home, my dad called me and said she cried all the way home! And there I thought wth did I do for her to be so mad at! LOL. I called her right away of course and she said she missed me too much! ^_^

    Well, I didn’t mean to tell you my life story but I just wanted to share my little experience. Hope you feel better soon! She’s only a phone call away!! 😀

    • Hahaha thanks!! I’m happy to meet you!

      Yeah, short lived but they feel nice on the lips!

      And yes, she’s my daughter! And OMG my mom did the same thing yours did! I had to move away for my first job and she didn’t talk to me for 2 weeks when I told her I was moving! MOMS LOL.
      I just cried. And watched her walk away. And then cried for 5 hours in the car LOL. And still weepy 3 days later….

  • Aw, Tracy, it’ll be good! Marky will have fun and you’ll have fun and then everything will be GOOD. I know it’s hard, though. But we are all here for you!

    These look lovely! I love the shine and the sheerness. Lately I’ve been liking the juicy, sheer lipsticks or matte ones, lol! NO IN-BETWEENS.

  • Oh Tracy, Marky is going to have so much fun and she’s so lucky to have you! P.s. It’s snowing in Edmonton *sigh* like literal blizzard outside. They say it’s wet snow but…

    • UGGGH. I heard. Got in the house tonight and it was 59C LOL!

      And thanks. xo I miss her so….

  • Aww dear Tracy, it will be okay. And I hope it will be okay. Hugs to you.

    They look adorable and very easy to wear! I’m surprised to see Cerise Noire is a nice red on you. You know I’m all about sheer juicy lipsticks. It is interesting that many of them actually end up drying up my lips in the end. These sound promising!

    • Thanks Lena! xo

      I think you especially would love these! They are balmy and really lovely!

  • Aww Tracy! Big hugs to you. Marky is going to be OK! I hope she’ll be home for Christmas and all that, so it’s not long now!

    These are actually pretty pigmented! Too bad they don’t last, but if they are super hydrating, I can think of them as tinted lip balms.

  • Liz

    I love cherries too, and the last two shades look perfect for fall! Good luck tomorrow. Hugs!

  • Lily

    All these colours look good on you! You know, since my last comment on Yves Rocher, saying I should brave the horrible parking situation just to have a look at this brand? Well, I still haven’t gone there yet. LOL! And big hugs to you Tracy! Be brave!!! We’re here for you 🙂

  • Awww~ huge hugs to you!!
    Love all these colours, for such a balmy textures, the pigment is amazing!

  • Eugenia

    Lil Sis, these shades look smooshy-yummy! Love that Marron Glacé (me & my nudes!) And for the record, Dr. Seuss totally rocked! When I was pregnant, I used to read The Cat in the Hat to Anna every afternoon!

    Sending you tons of love and Big Sis hugs xo

  • when i read cherry oil I had to swatch them, got two of them and really really like those. i am so sorry that marky left but it’s going to be ok, I only can imagine what you are going through now *big hugs and sends you lots of cake* <3

    • Yay!!

      Thanks so much! xo It’s so hard for me. And I’ll take all the cake you can send hahaha!

  • Loved your nod to Dr. Seuss and MARRON GLACE needs to get in my belly, STAT. I hope you’re adjusting to home without Marky. I’m sending you my love – and bags and bags of cherries!
