When it comes to brands, there are a couple which I know just work for me. No matter which product I pick up, they feel like they’re made for me, and one of those rather magical brands has to be Sisley. Filled with French savoir-faire, the brand produces the most fabulous skincare, and, as I’ve found out over the past year or so, their makeup is the bee’s knees!
Much of the brand’s makeup offering comes in the form of Phyto-Twists. Zebra covered, and ridiculously easy to use, these crayons make getting ready both easy, and a little more fun. Formulas are silky smooth, and give skin a subtle luminosity which looks natural and healthy, rather than metallic-shiny. I’ve been using the Phyto-Twist eye and lip products for a while now, and they’re among my favourites, so I had to get my hands on their brand new Phyto-Twist Blush!
There is a choice of four colours, which span pretty pinks to punchy oranges, so all skintones should find a perfect blush. The rounded crayon makes application an absolute breeze – after applying foundation, a swipe of the Phyto-Twist on the apples of my cheeks gives a believeable hit of colour. I blend it in with either fingers or a Beauty Blender, to a sheer rose finish and finish with a sweep of bronzer.
The joy of the Phyto-Twist is the clever formula. It feels like a cream to apply – super blendable, with Camelia and Shea Oils to hydrate and nourish skin. It dries down to feel more like a powder, but it doesn’t look powdery or cakey. It adds a much needed perk to skin, and I can’t wait to swipe it on with a tan, as it will look glorious!
