In The Spotlight : Sothys Makeup Range

You know, I tested many makeup brands in the past 10 years but Sothys is one of the few that I have never tried, mostly because it's only available in institutes and I rarely go there. So when they asked me to try a couple of their products, I was thrilled to test them!

Intense Look Eye Pencil in 3 Violine (21.50$)
This pencil comes with a smudger at the other end, which is a good tool to smudge the liner. Violine is a purple with gold shimmer, it has good pigmentation but since it's not very dark, it's still a soft shade.The staying power is really good, it's tear proof and last all day, even if it's not really a waterproof pencil (you can remove it with soap and water). The only thing I dislike about this product is that it doesn't glide easily on the skin.

Mineral Powder Eyeliner in 2 Gris (28.50$)
This eyeliner is a loose powder that you apply with a foam tip applicator. It is quite easy to use and gives your eyes soft definition, but keep in mind that the tip is large so it won't give you a thin line. I think it's a good product if you want to define your eyes without too much work, and if you prefer a soft look, but I wasn't impressed with the lasting power because I just can't keep it from transferring onto my eyelids.

Hydra-Glide Lipstick in 33 Rouge Rock ($28.50)
I love that shade! I like how it brighten up my face, it's a red with pink undertones. I was expecting something very creamy, since it's called 'Hydra-Glide', but I would say that it's more like a satin finish : creamy but not very glossy. It's a good thing in my book because it doesn't feather or smudge easily. It doesn't stain my lips like some of my other red lipsticks, but it's still quite long lasting. I only need a touch up after 5-6 hours.

Graphic Kohl Liner in 1 Noir Profond ($24.50) 
This kohl is very creamy and the shade 'Noir Profond' is a very pigmented black! It glides easily on the waterline and doesn't irritate my eyes. I wouldn't use it as an eyeliner though, because it smudge easily and it's so black that it will smear all over your face! It doesn't last all day on the waterline but it's comparable to my MAC eye kohls.

(I received these products in order to evaluate them and give my opinion, but rest assured that my comments are always honest and impartial.)
