If you’re looking for a cheap thrill, walk up to that Sisley make up counter then turn back round again cos Sisley is an expensive, luxurious, high end beauty thrill. It’s one of those ooh and ahh brands up there with SKII et al.
If you can get over this then let me show you my lips of the day, Sisley Phyto Lip Shine in Sheer Peach!
This glossy, ultra-luminous lipshine is creamy, imperceptible and ultra-comfortable. Extremely light and nourishing, with a treatment formula combining: Kokum and Mango butters to hydrate, protect and comfort (experience a +31% increase in hydration within 30 minutes); shiny and sheer polymers to smooth, contour and plump; sugar esters to comfort and shine. Leaves lips soothed, softened, hydrated and repaired, protected from environmental damage.
I have this in Sheer Nude too which has little pigment. I’d love to try one of the stronger pigmented lip shines one day.
Sheer Peach is indeed a very pretty orange peach the kind of lip shade I would go for day to day as I am not as keen on pinks.
The Sisley Lip Shines are strange in that they look really dense (opaque) and sold when you look at them but then melt into a super shiny glossy texture on the lips. Like – if you were to look at a Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited lipstick which is also a very shiny lip colour, you’ll notice it looks wet in the tube. The Sisley doesn’t, it looks like…matte butter.
I think this lipstick will last a long while because of this odd hard but glossy texture. My soft sheer shiny lipsticks disappear the fastest (that’s if they don’t snap first) whereas this one is as solid as.
It is very hydrating, I really like it! It reminds of Revlon Lip Butter a bit but the texture is thinner, and the colour is a bit more sophisticated. Packaging is lovely, heavy, expensive, comes in a red velvet pouch which my cat will find and hide in about 10 minutes but if I was anal like my mother, I would replace the lip stick into the pouch every time I used it.
For some reason I didn’t remember to swatch it on my hand but here it is on my face instead!
This is £26.50 which is actually less than I though It’d be so is not *that* unreasonable if you consider how many £30 lipsticks are around. On sale at House of Fraser.
