Over the past year or so, Sisley have quickly become one of my favourite beauty brands. For me, they tick every box: luxurious? Effective? Check, and check. Since appearing last month, Sisley’s Phyto Lip Twist in 1 Nude has been a real staple in my makeup bag.
Packaged in the brand’s signature zebra print, this is the one lipstick I can always find in the depths of my handbag! Thanks to the crayon-like stick the Phyto Lip Twist comes in, on-the-go touch-ups are an absolute cinch! I hardly even need to use a mirror!
1 Nude is my absolute perfect neutral shade! The bullet looks like it’s quite brown toned, but on the lips, it’s the most beautiful cool toned colour you can imagine. It’s the perfect accompaniment to a smoky eye, and I’ve been wearing it daily! The wear time for the Lip Twist is around two hours for me, and it feels really nourishing to wear – as you can probably tell, I’m a little obsessed!
Sisley Phyto Lip Twist is currently priced at £26.50 here
Enjoying Halloween last night meant that I had the perfect excuse to enjoy one of my newest lipsticks – Sisley’s Hydrating Long Lasting Lipstick in shade L30. As well as laying claim to one of the longest names I’ve come across, the lipstick is also one of the most luxurious!
Packaged in a golden case, the entire Long Lasting Lipstick is basically a study in opulence. Coming tucked inside a black velvet pouch, when you uncap the lipstick you get to see the lipstick bullet, which is a stunning, almost twisted looking design.
As well as looking incredibly slick, the shape of the bullet allows for super-precise application of the lipstick – even with the most pigmented of shades. It really is a life saver if you like to reapply your lips when you’re out and about! My shade, L30 Mandarine, is a real departure for me – rather than my typical pinky-nude shades, L30 is a stunning orange-toned coral which looks as pretty to wear now during the hight of autumn as it will with a tan in summer.
Before applying the Hydrating Long Lasting Lipstick, I prepped my lips by exfoliating them, and topping them off with a coat of Sisley’s Nutritive Lip Balm. Then I simply apply colour, straight from the bullet. The formula of the lipstick is absolute perfection – an incredibly creamy texture which coats the lips with an opaque wash of colour.
With a subtle, slightly powdery scent, Sisley’s Hydrating Long Lasting Lipstick feels like possibly the most grown-up lipstick I own! Wear time is absolutely amazing – I can easily go for up to six hours before I need to freshen up the colour. For such a pigmented lipstick, it feels wonderfully light and nourishing to wear thanks to Sisley’s inclusion of calendula and vitamins c and e.
Sisley Hydrating Long Lasting Lipstick is priced at £34.00 and is available here (UK) and here (US)
