Review: Sothys Paris Echappée Parisienne Make-Up Collection (Fall/Winter 2019)

Sothys Paris Echappee Parisienne FallWinter 2019 makeup collection 1

The Sothys Paris Fall/Winter 2019 Echappée Parisienne Make-Up Collection draws inspiration from the beautiful city of Paris for a glamorous and elegant beauty look.

Sothys, an avant-garde beauty expert, offers a line of innovative skin and body care as well as a makeup line with limited-edition collections inspired by the seasons. The Echappée Parisienne Collection features chic shades of rosewood, plum, and taupe.

The Rouge Intense Sothys Boise De Rose Vaugirard Lipstick* is a beautiful rosewood shade that looks slightly cooler in person than it does in the photos. I would describe it as a nude that’s very wearable due to its satin formula and hint of pink. This colour will complement many different skin tones and enhance fall and winter beauty looks. The formula is creamy, hydrating, and long-wearing. The product also has a slight, yet deliciously fruity, scent that reminds me of jam.

Like all Sothys products that I've tried, this lipstick is luxuriously packaged with its glossy black tube, magnetic closure, and Sothys imprint on the product. The photo above shows the precise the imprint and perfectly sculpted shape of the lipstick bullet. The magnetic closure is impressive as well and is a new packaging feature released with this collection. It provides the ideal solution for lost caps or lipstick stains at the bottom of purses and makeup drawers. I think this product would be the perfect gift to splurge on for yourself or the makeup lovers in your life who can always use a good quality neutral lipstick with chic packaging.

Echappée Parisienne also includes an eyebrow powder which is something that I have not seen from past Sothys seasonal makeup collections. The Poudre Sourcils Taupe Universel Eyebrow Powder* is a neutral matte taupe shade that appears slightly warmer in the photos than it does in person. Since I have very dark eyebrows, this shade is a bit light for me; however, since it is free of orange or red tones, it is the perfect crease colour for me, so I have been using it as an eyeshadow. I always have a difficult time finding shadows that do not make my eye area appear red or tired, so I am very excited about this colour. It is also very easy to blend and lasts all day without creasing which I can imagine would make it ideal as a brow powder as well.

Unlike the lipstick with its glossy packaging, the brow power’s outer casing is a sleek matte black. Inside, there is a mirror and the powder itself is set into a glossy black compact. I love that this product also has a magnetic closure that keeps it secure for travel.

To further enhance the eyes, this collection includes a black liquid liner. The Calligraphy Eyeliner* features glossy black packaging and a flexible felt tip. I really appreciate this design because pencil eyeliners tend to tug at the sensitive skin near my lash line. This liner is very comfortable to use and easy to control, so I can shift from creating a thick line to a thinner wing just by changing the amount of pressure that I apply.

The photo above shows how the same eyeliner can create smooth lines in a range of sizes. The formula is also very impressive as it is pigmented and completely smudge-proof within a few seconds after application. If you have not had luck with traditional eyeliners or love using innovative products, this liner is a must-try.

Overall, this collection includes a perfect combination of classic shades and sophisticated formulas to capture the elegance of Paris and the fall and winter seasons. I appreciate how wearable the shades are and how the focus of the collection is to enhance the natural beauty of the features. These products will be in my makeup rotation long after the leaves fall and the snow melts. The other items in the collection are just as versatile and include a transparent foundation in a universal shade that can be used as a high-definition finishing powder, a black eye pencil, a shimmery taupe eyeshadow pencil, a brown eyebrow powder, a dual-ended eyebrow brush, a plum-toned lipstick with a matte finish, and a coordinating nail polish.
