The TV commercial for the newly-released Sorbet make-up range has been in heavy rotation over the past few days and ZAlebs was at the launch last week in Sandton to find out what the range had to offer.

The move into cosmetics only makes sense for a brand that has long offered beauty services in the salon as well as products across skincare and body (which include a BB cream and a set of nail colors).

During the research stages, the brand partnered with Clicks to launch ‘The Skin Tone Project’ in which nearly 3000 women participated to help the brand create a foundation range that would match to all skin tones.

“We found that 28 shades were needed to offer a match for all, giving Sorbet one of the most extensive ranges in South Africa,” explained Sorbet on their website.

Sorbet has also created what they call a “Foundation Match-Me service” to help customers find their perfect match in store.
