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!

Sothys — Rouge des Arts (Nail Lacquer) Review

Collection: Sothys 2017 Fall

Sothys Paris is a 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. Today, I am reviewing my favorite of all beauty products, the nail polish!

Sothys Nail Lacquer in Rouge des Arts

As befits a luxury brand, Sothys’ cosmetic packaging is elegant. The Vernis/Nail Lacquer comes in a 5 mL glass bottle, which has a pleasing heft despite its smaller size.

Sothys (pronounced so-tees) is rather romantically named for the French form (Sothys) of the Greek translation (Sothis) of the ancient Egyptian name (Sopdet) for the brightest star seen in the Earth’s night sky. In English, we know the star as Sirius. Ain’t etymology cool?

The brand’s logo is a depiction of the Egyptian personification of Sopdet as a goddess.

The sole nail color (I think) in their Fall 2017 collection is a classic red cream, Rouge des Arts (310).

Red creams are perhaps my favorite of all nail colors, and this red is especially opulent and dense, a throwback to the 1930s. It is a vibrant, deep, true red that is perfect both day and night. The pigmentation is really excellent, and to me, that’s mainly what makes this a more luxurious polish.
