The first time I heard about Sonia Rykiel was a long time ago in Spain but I did not know the woman behind the brand, she is a French fashion designer and a writer born from a Russian mother and Rumanian father. Her clothes are something I like but that I can’t afford. When I saw her cosmetics in Japan, I was so intrigued, did I miss something ? Why is her line not available to us outside of some Asian countries ? I sent “her” -or whoever is behind their website- an email, hopefully somebody will answer and shed some light on this mystery. Sonia Rykiel is now 84 years old, I have been watching some Youtube videos to learn a bit more about her and about her cosmetics but her range is pretty new so for now it’s hard to find reviews or any information. Just for fun, guess who I spotted in one video ? Check it out here and jump to 3:08
Her striped signature look reflects on all her packaging and even in the blushers. Since I discovered her face make-up products this summer, my compacts suddenly gremlined themselves at a scary speed. Some more *pops* to come in the upcoming days or weeks depending on how fast they will arrive but since I already have quite a few, I’ll start with those. I’ll share some swatches with you and tell you why I am loving them so very much, I have failed to resist their quality and prettiness and I am sure many of you will follow!
