Huge Make-Up Declutter 2020

Hello, hello – welcome to / welcome back to A Brash Attitude!

I’ve been gradually sorting through my make-up collection and have started the process of decluttering products that are either mega old, or products that I just don’t reach for. I’ll link to any reviews in case you want to check them out.

Blushes and bronzers:

Tarte, Juice Beauty, Sothys*, and Too Faced. All of these, with the exception of the Juice Beauty are more than four years old. The Juice Beauty cream blush is more recent, but sadly, it has started to dry out.


ColourPop, Maison Jacynthe*, Essence, Axiology, KVD* and NudeStix – most of these are several years old, and have started to go off.

The ColourPop, Hikari and Too Faced are old and I cannot remember the last time that I used them. The Juice Beauty Foundation has started to go off, the scent has changed – it smells like paint.


These are all quite old – ColourPop, Essence, Wet N Wild, and Brazen – and I never reach for them anymore.

Have you done a makeup declutter?

Thanks for reading have a beautiful day!

Sothys Spring Summer 2020 Collection – Été Balinais – Review & Swatching

Sothys Été Balinais Spring Summer 2020

Hello, hello!

Today I have a review of some of the products in the new Sothys Spring 2020 Collection – Été Balinais! These are PR samples from Sothys and PozPub [info in italics taken from press release and from the Sothys website]

This season, Sothys whisks you off to Indonesia in search of the most beautiful islands. From Sumatra to Bali, discover our seven new favourites in vibrant sunny summer colours.

A harmony of Terracotta with pink and brown shades to give a vibrant, chic effect. A touch of glittering bronze for a radiant, sunny finish…enhanced with a bright, bold Fuchsia for fresh and vivid make-up.

Sothys Été Balinais Spring Summer 2020

The spring collection is comprised of seven new products – one Bronzing powder, one Illuminating powder for eyelids, complexion and decolleté, two sets of Smoky eye duo pencils with a eye contour and smoky eye pencil, two Rouges intenses lipsticks, and one Venis Sothys nail polish. Let’s take a look at what I received:

Illuminating Powder for eyelids, complexion and decolleté (#20 Bronze Sumatra)

Sothys Été Balinais Spring Summer 2020

Multi-purpose powder with a soft texture which allows you to adapt the coverage with no caking effect. Formula enriched with light-reflecting pearls for a luminous and radiant complexion and decolletage. Universal shade which adapts to all skin tones.

Sothys Bali2

This is a gorgeous illuminating / highlighting powder, very finely milled and silky to apply. The shade is rose gold in tone and can be used for both a subtle and a blinding look!

Smoky Eye Pencil Duos (#30 Brun and Kaki Suma, and #40 Bronze and Cuivré Lombok)

Eye contour pencil & Smoky eye pencil – A jumbo pencil for easy application, perfect coverage and long wear with a sparkly finish. A retractable eye contour pencil with a thin lead for a precise line and a matte finish for use as a khôl pencil.

Both colour duos are beautiful and can be worn for both a day look and a glam evening look, depending on application. These would be great for travel!

Rouges Intenses Satiny Lipstitck (#237 Fushia Jasmin, and #238 Brun Rosé Temple)

Creamy and gliding texture – Satin finish – Medium coverage – Nourishing effect – Softness on application and long wear.

Sothys Été Balinais Spring Summer 2020

I’ve raved about the beautiful texture of these lipsticks before – so smooth and highly pigmented! Both shades are long wearing – and I love both shades!

What do you think of this mini collection for spring – it launches on March 24th!

Thanks for reading have a beautiful day!
