Sothys Un Automne a Paris | Fall/Winter 2017

sothys un automne a paris  (3)::: press sample :::

It's Fri-yay! I'm really feeling Friday as I have big weekend plans- sleep. I haven't been sleeping very well and as such am crazy tired (and maybe just a touch irritable...) I think a lazy weekend with a bit of reading, music, and naps should put me back in fighting form. before that though, we've got a few Sothys products to get to. For Fall, Sothys brings us their Auntomne a Paris collection that features fall hues and gorgeous formulas.



I'm always interested in trying something different, and for me, that's exactly what the Mix Solution Powder Transformer is. When I read Sothys' description of this liquid, I wasn't quite sure what it did other than transform powder products. Into what, exactly? Well, anything you want.

I've played around with this and found you can create a liquid/cream product out of any powder. I've made shadows into eyeliner and cream bases, and blushes into cream blushes and lip stain. One drop of the transforming liquid is enough, and you can apply it directly on the powder without ruing it. The transformer dries pretty quickly, leaving your powders as they were before use.


As for powders, Sothys does them remarkably well. The Radiance Blush in Terre de Sienne has a smooth, silky formula, and a peachy-melon shade with a satin finish. The shade isn't too warm, but gives a bit of warmth to my skin. I love neutral blush shades and this is just peachy enough to be a colour, but has the neutral tones that wears well with just about everything.


Eyes get the subdued gorgeousness of the Eye Quartet Palette Harmonie D'Automne. With four autumn- perfect shades, the compact palette features three textures. First, a coppery satin, followed by a plummy-brown matte, and a dirty gold and warm brown shimmer. The shadows have great pigmentation, and an easy formula that applies evenly and blend well. I found the matte shade doesn't swatch very impressively (it's quite uneven) but applies easily on eyes.

Overall, another great collection from Sothys! It also includes a brick red nail polish, a brown pencil, and two lip and lip liner options. Sothy's Un Automne a Paris Collection is currently available at Sothys beauty consultant locations across Canada.
