Julep Skip the Brush Crème-to-Powder Blush Sticks in Rose Gold, Pearl Glow, Muted Mauve (May 2018)

This month’s Nail Color shades are mostly brights in creme and shimmer finishes. Afton (described as a “modern camel creme” when it was released in last winter’s QVC box), April, and Sam are repromotes.

From Julep:

Go for contrast and full saturation with polish shades that sing of fruity drinks, blooming flowers, and life in full color. These punchy brights are sure to bring a smile.

Sothys Fall 2017 collection

Sothys — Voile de Rose (Cream Blush) Review

Collection: Sothys 2017 Fall

Sothys Paris is a luxury French beauty brand that is sold primarily in beauty institutes and spas worldwide. I had never before tried their line of skincare and cosmetics, and was intrigued when I was contacted to review a few of the nail and makeup products from their Fall 2017 collection.

I was sent a Nail Lacquer (but of course!), Cream Blush, and Rouge Mat Velvet Effect Lipsticks for review. I have previously reviewed the Nail Lacquer in Rouge des Arts, and if you would like additional information about the company, you can read it in that review, as well.

Today, I am reviewing the Cream Blush in Voile de Rose (30), a bright yet soft azalea pink.

A innovative cream formula that transforms into a powder. An Old Rose shade that warms up and brightens the complexion beautifully for a guaranteed healthy glow!

I’ve been dying to try a Julep Mystery Box, but the only ones (one?) they’ve had since I’ve been a subscriber have not come with polishes I’ve been interested in. This time, they had two new holo/metallic shades, so I was definitely in—and I was not disappointed!
