With winter fast approaching, new and limited makeup collections are hitting the shelves rather quickly, that it's hard even for me to keep up! One brand I discovered around this time last year is Sothys Paris, and I was left beyond impressed by the quality of their products (more on that here). The new Sothys Escapade à Paris Collection offers 9 new products, and I have quite a few to share with you today! At first glance, the beautiful, warm-toned shades definitely made my heart flutter. But are they as good as they look?
The Sothys Radiance Blush in Nuit Orangée* (C$45.00) is a lovely coral shade with subtle golden shimmer. This powder blush really delivers in terms of pigmentation, yet does not feel or look chalky. What's also great is that its intensity can be built, so I can even pull off wearing it on a day-to-day basis with a light hand. I usually skip on highlighter since this blush gives off an illuminating effect. As with the entire collection, the packaging looks very luxurious with its matte black finish (and thankfully fingerprints are not an issue!). Although not a dupe, Wet n Wild's Pearlescent Pink has a very similar finish, although it feels more powdery and has more of a rosy finish than Nuit Orangée. This particular blush comes embossed with the Sothys logo on the powder and a mirror and protective pouch is also included.
The Rouge Intense Sothys Satin Lipstick in Beige Saint-Germain* (C$31.50) is unlike any other shade I own, and I will admit, I was quite intimidated by it at first. It comes off as a dark beige with a satin finish, and since nude lipsticks don't really suit me, I thought it would not go well with my skin tone. I was however pleasantly surprised! Once swatched, it has a bit of a rusty red to it, and it isn't too opaque so it can still be pulled off as looking natural. From all the lipsticks I've tried, Sothys, hands down, make the best: the formulation is so creamy, long-lasting, and hydrating, and the colour selection is very unique. If you are looking for a formulation that will deliver on all fronts, I think the Sothys lipsticks are well worth the splurge!

Once again, the Sothys Cosmetics range has yet to disappoint me. Although on the pricier side, the quality of their products definitely makes up for it.
