I was given the chance to review two of the new additions to Sisley's A/W collection recently.

To be honest I don't really see Sisley being review any where when I read beauty blogs and after                      testing the make up products I have no idea why.
They tick so many important boxes for make up lovers,

  1. The look really impressive and expensive
  2. The formulation is great, very long lasting
  3. They have statement pieces
  4. And they make you feel a million dollars
I was given the Phyto Lipshine in sheer burgundy.
You even get your own velvet pouch! Very posh

Now the colour looks really dark there but it is a sheer lipstick. The colour pay off is great and it is very moisturising. The bonus of this formulation is that you can wear a statement lip but slightly more in your comfort zone if you are not a normal wearer of bright shades. Also with it being sheer you don't get it collecting around dry skin on your lips if you have not managed to use a lip scrub before. Most strong shades need lip prep before you can even think of wearing them.
And do I really need to point out that it is the perfect A/W colour?
I am sure you would get a few compliments whipping this out at Christmas parties.

The next thing I tried was Phyto Khol In Dark Amethyst

A lovely shimmering purple with smooth glitter.

With this you can either use it as a normal eyeliner on your upper lids or try what I did.
I did a light smoky grey eye then used this purple to line my lower lash and water line taking it up to meet the outer corners of my eye shadow on the top lid.
There was just enough glitter to make it look special and the colour blended in perfectly. I can see this looking great on a plain lid and the lines being a bit thicker.
I don't have sensitive eyes so could use it on the water line no problem but I would say because of the glitter be careful if your eyes tend to water.
I also found because I have blue eyes the shade of this liner was perfect to make them pop a little more than usual.

I could not write a review of this liner without showing you a picture of the end of the pencil

    Sorry about the shadow!

    How pretty is that?? I am a true magpie for little details like this lol

    The Phyto Shine lipstick retails for £26.50 which is about what you would pay for a high end brand
    The Eyeliner is £30.50. Now as much as I love this eye liner I do think that it is rather expensive for what it is and compared to other high end brands.

    You can purchase the Sisley make up range from House of Fraser or online

    Although products sent for review all opinions are as usual honest
