Sothys Mineral Powder Eyeliner, Graphic Kohl Liner & Intense Look Eye Pencil: Review and Swatches

Disclaimer: The products featured were provided for review.
Hey everyone, hope you are all doing well! Today I have three eye makeup products from the awesome French makeup brand Sothys I featured a little while ago. I've got here a Mineral Powder Eyeliner/Eyeshadow, a Kohl Liner, and an Intense Look Eye Pencil.
To see my review of each product and a shimmery gunmetal look I did with these products, click.......
First up is the Sothys Mineral Powder Eyeliner in "Gris" ($28.50). This beautiful gunmetal shimmer powder is packaged in a little tube with a thin sponge applicator which allows you to use the powder as a liner or a shadow (see swatches below). The powder is very soft and pigmented and the shade is very gorgeous!
Next up is the Graphic Kohl Liner in "Noir Profound" ($24.50). This is a very dark and pigmented black eyeliner. And by very dark I mean very dark, probably the blackest eyeliner I have tried to date. I test swatched this next to "Zero" from Urban Decay's 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil line, and the pigmentation of "Noir Profound" just blew "Zero" right out of the park!
The texture of this liner is also very very creamy, it glides on perfectly, with that said the liner isn't very smudge-proof so it should be set with a powder and because the texture is so creamy, it's hard to do a very sharp line with this. With that said this works amazingly well as a base for darker eyeshadows (see below for the look I used with this),
Last up is a Intense Look Eye Pencil in the "Violine" ($21.25). "Violine" is a plummy maroon eyeliner with shimmers. The pigmentation for this is also very good, creamy and rich. The liner had a smudging sponge on the other end of the brush which allows you to smudge out the liner for a smokier look if you so choose.
Overall it is a great eyeliner but personally I am not too fond of the color because I think it's too light for lining my upper lid and too dark for lining my lower lid.
Here are each of the products swatched:
And finally here is the eye look I did with all three products. I used the Graphic Kohl Liner as an eyeshadow base and as an eyeliner, the Sothys Mineral Powder Eyeliner as an all over color and the Intense Look Eye Pencil near my lower lashline. The look is definitely darker and more dramatic than what I would normally go for but I still really like how it turned out!
So there you have, another three fantastic products from Sothys. The price point for these products are high but the quality definitely lives up to the price! Thanks as aways for reading, have a good one!
