Yves Rocher is actually a French brand known for the use of botanical/natural ingredients in their products. They are widely available in Canada and have a few stores in the east coast of the US I believe. I was never a big fan of their products , but I find that the quality of their products has really increased over the last year or so . It started off with a long wear eyeliner that I bought from them sometime  early last year, and I have found the quality to be consistently good in recent times after that. So..kudos Yves Rocher!

Another thing that they are known for is their eternal discounts/sales and gift with purchase options.  I recently stopped by to buy another of their waterproof eye pencils ( this time for my Mom), but ended up buying a few other things as well . I must have spent around 30$ in total but got a pretty cute gym bag :

with the purchase!

 

I bought 3 of their waterpoof eye pencils ( they are regular 14.50 , were on sale for 8$) :

and also bought one of their eyeshadows in a pretty mossy-olivey green shade (I believe this is regularly 9$ and was on sale for 6$). I’ve been on the hunt for a shade like this for a bit now:

Here are their Swatches:

These pencils do not budge until you take them off.  They make a really good buy for the price! The shadow wears pretty well too.

And I’ll leave you with a shot of Simba relaxing through my swatching and photo taking :)
