It may not feel like spring around here just yet, but is sure does in makeup land! New collections are popping up left and right, and I'm always curious to see what brands have created for the upcoming season. I'm stoked to have gotten my hands on some of the items from the Sothys Spring Summer 2017 Désert Chic Makeup Collection. Inspired by the hot desert, it features warm colours to mimic that sun-kissed look those of us living in northern climates ooh and aah over, especially during the cold winter months when the sun barely makes an appearance.
The Sothys Bronzing Powder in Sunny Landscape (C$59.95) is a milk chocolate brown that wait for it... smells like vanilla cocoa! The compact comes with a large round mirror for easy application. The pressed powder has a pretty pattern and packs on well onto a fluffly brush with just one dip, so a little goes a long way. It's also very easy to blend, which is also key when it comes to bronzers or else you may end up looking muddy. The universal shade is matte and has a natural finish, and can even double as an eyeshadow too.
The Sothys Eyeshadow Pencil in Safari (C$27.00) is a shimmery champagne gold that is perfect an as all-over eyelid colour. The applicator makes it easy to just swipe and go, with the formula melting on contact with the skin. This retractable pencil also features a built-in sharpener for convenience. I love how it illuminates the eyes, and can be used as a brow highlight as well.
The Sothys Calligraphy Eyeliner in Cactus (C$32.95) is really neat as the packaging is inspired by the fountain pen for an easier hold. The colour itself is matte but not completely black - it has a grey tint to it meaning it does not look as harsh. The felt tip applicator has a very fine tip for precise application. The formula is very long-lasting and does not smudge or fade on me throughout the day.
The Sothys Lip Lacquer in Tangerine (C$32.95) is orange with a pink undertone that is very flattering, especially on lighter skin tones. This gloss-lipstick hybrid is basically like a liquid lipstick, combining both waxes and oils for a moisturizing, non-sticky finish. The doe-foot applicator is very easy to use to achieve a crisp line. The formula wears a good 4+ hours on me when not eating or drinking (or talking too much)! This lip product has a light vanilla scent, which I love.

I am never disappointed by Sothys' seasonal collections - their products have great pigmentation and are always pleasing to the eyes.
Below is the makeup look I created using all four products mentioned above.
