Sothys Winter 2015 Makeup Collection

I popped into the drugstore yesterday and was slightly amazed that it had already been transformed into full-on Christmas mode. It just doesn't feel like that time of year just yet, to me anyway, but something that does feel quite right are all of the new collections being rolled out for the winter/holiday season. Sothys has recently introduced a nine piece, limited edition collection inspired by the city of lights- Paris! Read on for a look at a few items!

If there is only one time in a calendar year that's it's acceptable to wear glitter as an adult, then it has to be the holidays through to New Year's. Agreed? Sothys Poussier d'Or Face & Decollete Sparkling Powder has to be the most elegant way to inject a little glimmer into any look as it gives a soft, golden veil of shimmer. Housed in a little glass bottle complete with a vintage style atomizer- which I adore beyond words!- the powder applies very finely and evenly. It can be used on face, body, and hair (tip- apply after hair spray for the longest lasting effect) for some added glow. I love that the shimmer is quite fine and refined, but still reflects light and does give some glimmer.

The Winter 2015 Collection includes two nail polish shades, one a classic, deep red (Rouge Nuit) and the shade I received, Beige Doux. Beige Doux is a light, milky nude shade with a super shiny finish. The formula is fairly thin, and seemed to be rather sheer on the first coat, but built perfectly with two.

Sometimes I come across a lip shade that just doesn't look quite right for me in the tube but then I try it, because that's just what you do, and end up loving the shade. That's exactly what happened with Sothys Rouge Intense Satin Lipstick in Beige Saint-Germain. The shade is a slightly coppery red-brown with very slight golden shimmer. The formula is so comfortable- it feels like a balm and is quite hydrating thanks to shea butter- and gives the perfect amount of pigmentation and shine.

Last but not least, a little shadow. This collection includes two, one being a matte taupe (Taupe Intemporel) and the other, Reflet Nocturne a deep emerald with iridescent shimmer. The shadow is gorgeous both in appearance and texture as it's super pigmented, smooth, and applies and blends with ease. Oh, and it can be used wet or dry. Used wet the shimmer really pops. I quite like to wear it as a wash over lids with just an inner corner highlight and some black liquid liner as the shade speaks for itself. The shadow is housed in a mirrored mini compact with suede storage pouch- so adorable and a really nice little touch. Did I mention the lipstick includes a suede sleeve too? Because it does.

Overall, there are some really excellent picks in this collection. There is something about the products that seem so perfect for gift giving. I think any makeup fan would appreciate a few of these pieces under the tree. See anything you like? Have any Sothys products you love?
