I was recently contacted by the Canadian PR team for Sothys Paris to see if I wanted to test out their new fall-winter 2017 makeup collection – Reflet (Reflection). [Info in italics has been taken from their press release]
For this new season, Sothys holds up a mirror to a beautiful reflection and magnifies your powers of seduction.
First up is the Cream Blush ($45 CAD).
A cream formula that transforms into a powder for a guaranteed healthy glow.
Velvety texture / Soft, satiny finish / Buildable coverage
An Old Rose shade that warms up and brightens the complexion beautifully. It has a smooth, easy-to-apply texture that melts onto the skin.
This is the first true cream blush that I’ve ever used. The Old Rose / Voile de Rose shade is very wearable, and I can see it working for a wide range of skintones. Because I’m quite fair, I have to apply with a light hand. I apply it with my fingers first, and then blend it out with a synthetic brush.
Next is the Smoky Eye Duo which is composed of the Contour Eye Pencil and Smoky Eye Pencil in Plum ($48.50 CAD).
Creamy texture / Iridescent Finish / Long-lasting
A smoky eye pencil and an eye contour pencil in matching shades for a chic, sophisticated look. A jumbo pencil for easy application and perfect coverage. A retractable eye contour pencil with a fine lead for drawing precision strokes.
The Smoky Eye pencil applies smoothly, and can be easily blended out with a synthetic brush. I love the metallic plum effect. The contour eye pencil can be used for a cat eye, or for lining the bottom lashes for a dramatic smoky eye look.
The Velvet Effect Lipstick in Rose Le Pic ($35.95 CAD).
Velvet texture / Matte finish / High coverage
This formula offers a comfortable velvet feel added to a matte, second-skin effect. Elegant packaging with red velvet pouch.
This lipstick is so beautiful – from the packaging to the embossing on the lipstick. It is a super hydrating, velvety matte finish. The shade Rose Lepic is so perfect for fall!
Sothys is available at institutes and spas across Canada (and worldwide).
Here is their statement on animal testing [from website]:
Sothys formulates all its products and treatments without animal testing. Sothys does not believe in this testing method, instead using in vitro and human patch testing to assure its users of its product safety and efficacy.
