There are quite a few new launches from Sisley-Paris to get excited about! I have two to share today for makeup including the new shades of Phyto-Lip Twist Mattes ($50 each) and a new product called Phyto-Khol Star ($55). More reviews to follow for brows and hair care but today I’m excited to share a look at some products for eyes and lips.
Phyto-Lip Twist Mattes
I’ve been a huge fan of the Phyto-Lip Twists since trying my first one last July in Baby #2. I’ve since added quite a few more to my collection which I’ll share in a later post. Today’s review includes the Phyto-Lip Twist Mattes because there are four new shades that have just launched (there are two existing mattes in the lineup). These are super smooth luxurious mattes that have a velvety feel. There’s no tugging or drying out effect with these. The pigment is ultra rich and give the lips full coverage with a soft radiant matte finish.
Four new shades below include 19 Ballet, 20 Drama, 21 Ruby and 22 Burgundy:
The Phyto-Lip Twists are insanely expensive but I really love the formula for a quick and easy kind of lip. I almost always have Baby in my bag with me. There is a wide range of shades in the regular lineup, but the matte shades tend to be more on the bold side with one new nude. The shades in the current lineup plus new ones:
- 17 Kiss is a bold fuchsia pink
- 18 Tango is a deep and bold classic red
- 19 Ballet is a nude pink
- 20 Drama is a purple plum
- 21 Ruby is a pinkish red
- 22 Burgundy is a brick red
I have all six mattes swatched below, lasting power is excellent and the deep shades leave a bit of a stain so as they fade you’ll still see some color on the lips which is nice. There’s no detectable scent. They are comfortable feeling on the lips as well.
Phyto-Khol Star Waterproof Eyeliners
Next are the new Phyto-Khol Star Waterproof Eyeliners. These are probably the most expensive eyeliners I’ve ever tried but the pigment and colors are so unique to me. Although the colors seem standard classics, they have an ultra rich base and the formula glides on the skin very smoothly. There is a little bit of a drying period which allows you to blend or smudge on the eyes – it’s like the dry time of a mascara, simply try not to blink or squint your eyes for a minute otherwise there will be transfer. However once it dries I found these stayed put all day long without any smudging. I don’t line on the waterline but I did put these along the upper lashes and on the lower lash line. I have yet to test these in the pool but plan on doing so later this summer. For now the lasting power was very impressive to me.
Most of the colors have some sort of sparkle in them. It’s like micro-fine glitter flecks. Three have a smooth metallic pearl quality. Pigment is quite intense and the colors are really beautiful. It’s been a long time since I’ve felt compelled to wear anything except bronze or brown eyeliner. I usually wear a powder shadow so the lines aren’t as harsh. These have made me change my mind about eyeliner in general. The bottoms have a removable sharpener. These are the twist up kind and I really appreciate that the caps are very snug at the top – some don’t have a tight seal and I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had to throw away liners because they dried out. I suspect these will stay fresh because the packaging seems really well designed.
Swatched in the same order as shown above:
- Sparkling Black is a true rich black with silver sparkles
- Sparkling Grey is a blue grey with silver flecks
- Sparkling Brown is a shimmering bronze brown with brown and silver flecks
- Sparkling Bronze is an olive shimmer
- Sparkling Blue is a bold blue with silver flecks
- Mystic Purple is a metallic rich purple
- Mystic Blue is a metallic navy
- Mystic Green is a metallic forest green
Bottom line lots to love with the new Sisley-Paris launches. The price points are indeed spendy but so far I’ve been beyond impressed with everything I’ve tried from them. The quality is really there in both skincare and makeup. So many of you had raved about the skincare for years long before I tried the line. They often have good gift with purchases on their site and other retailers. I try to wait for a good one before splurging. Also in case you missed the post they have an awesome Beauty Subscription Program (the only one I’ve kept). I did a review on their 6-month program from last year. This allows you to try things before splurging on the full size.
You can find the new Phyto-Lip Twists and Phyto-Khol Star Waterproof out at all Sisley-Paris counters now. Also available online at Sisley-Paris, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Barneys New York, Beautylish and Saks Fifth Avenue.
