I was ecstatic to get the chance to try the Fall 2017 Makeup Collection from Sothys Paris. Unfortunately, I had to take my pictures before diving into these beauties, but my God, when I had my chance, I played with them like a young girl getting a new doll. You are probably very familiar with Sothys Paris great skincare products, but, maybe were totally unaware that they had a makeup line. Keep on reading, you’re in for a treat.
🐰 Good to know that Sothys Paris is a cruelty-free brand!
Sothys Paris has arrived with a collection of foundations, lips and eye products to create a glamorous look, perfect for all skin tones. Combined to their renowned advanced skincare formulas developed thru their 70 years of expertise, these new makeup products will undoubtedly surprise you.
First thing first, the packaging is simply superb, really chic. Feels and looks high-end.
Blush Sothys – Cream Blush
Shade: 30 Voile de Rose | Shell Life: 18 months | Made in France
Hands down, the product that I was the most excited to try since I’m a cream blush enthusiast. I don’t know why cream formulas have such a bad rap; believe me they are nothing like they used to be and truly are an older gal BFF. This product is an old rose shade and gives an healthy, bright and warm glow.
Extra creamy without feeling greasy on the skin (no oily feeling whatsoever),
A little goes a VERY long way,
Ultra long wearing (12+ hours),
Melts into the skin to create a natural finish.
You have to work the product quickly as it dries up really fast on your skin.
Best way to apply: Using my fingers, I swirl around and place LITTLE dots where I want the product to act and I blend it using either a small stipple brush or my trusted Sephora Pro’s number 55.5 or 74 brush.
Duo Smoky Eyes
– Eye Contour Pencil & Smoky Eye Pencil –
Shade: Feutrine Prune | Shell Life: 24 months | Made in Germany
This duo comes with a jumbo matte coloured stick and the matching eye pencil that has the most beautiful iridescent finish. My absolute favourite products from this collection! It also comes in a black-bray shade, ideal for a sophisticated and chic look.
Hyper long wearing (even waterproof, as tested in the shower),
The jumbo stick doesn’t crease and both products don’t transfer on my hooded eyelids,
The jumbo stick makes the perfect base,
Both “prune” shades are so flattering on green eyes,
The jumbo stick is not a twist up, so you have to sharpen it.
The way I apply them: I apply the jumbo stick either as an eyeliner on my upper lash or in my crease as my transition shade and I smoke my lower lash using the smoky eye pencil. It’s so gorgeous, it screams FALL goodness ! LOVE!!!
Price: 48.50$ (the duo)
Velvet Effect Lipstick
Shade: 310 Rose Lepic | Shell Life: 24 months | Made in France
Long wearing (no transfer on my coffee mug or BeardMan),
Creamy formula (for a matte formula that is) ,
This color (310) is the perfect universal pink that will suit every skin tone,
Also comes in a Red rich shade (320) for a bold elegant look.
It has a mild “old lady” lipstick scent,
Like every matte lipsticks on the market, if you don’t hydrate your lips prior to the application, they will crust/chapped as the day goes by..
Fact: I profoundly dislike matte lipsticks, but that being said, I actually enjoyed wearing this one. Adding a little bit of clear gloss makes it even better 😉
If you enjoy high-end brands like Tom Ford, Dior, Chanel but have been wanting and waiting for a cruelty-free version, you should most definitely look at Sothys Paris whole makeup line. They are definitely in the same category but a little easier on your wallet.
