Sisley Paris is one of those beauty brands I’ve been aware of for as long as I can remember. Yet, for some reason I have never actually tried any of their products. Not really sure why, just for some reason haven’t! So when I was asked to trial the Sisley Paris Phyto Lip Shines*, I excitedly agreed. Here are my thoughts; 

What They Say:

A treatment lipstick with more colour than a gloss and more shine than a lipstick. Creamy, invisible, and very comfortable, the texture of Phyto-Lip Shine is both light and nourishing, with its treatment formula that provides brilliant shine and total softness. Kokum and mango butters leave lips hydrated, protected, and comfortable, brilliant, sheer filmogenic polymers create a smoothing, coating, and plumping effect. They ensure a brilliant and luminous finish, while sucrose esters ensure softness, comfort, and shine.

RRP: $50 – Available from David Jones

What I Say:

I got to try the shades Sheer Papaya and Sheer Berry, and have to admit that I at first was a little intimidated by the tangerine/orange shade, as I am not normally one to wear such bright bold shades, and especially not orange. But I hadn’t need to worry, as the name suggests, it does go on sheer, and in more or a coral tangerine shade.

The lipstick glides on easily, but is not as creamy as I would have thought considering it is also called a treatment lipstick. However, regardless it is very lovely on the lips and you wouldn’t even know it is there.

And although it is sheer, it actually gives off more colour than I would have otherwise thought, and especially the Sheer Berry Shade, which has a lovely sheer red shade. Again it looks very dark in the but it goes on as a lovely stain, so it is very wearable, even for everyday casual use. And common for both shades, is that you can build up the colour a touch by adding an additional coat, so it definitely holds true that it adds more colour than your typical lipgloss. As for the shine, it adds a lovely sheen, but I wouldn’t go as far as calling it glossy, but it is also not claiming to be. Personally I really the satiny shine it gives, as sometimes I feel that a gloss can be a bit too much, so this is a more subtle shine, more grownup if you like.

The Paris Phyto Lip Shine claims to have a plumping effect, but I have to admit that I struggle to see that, but maybe it is just because I need to wear it, and reapply more frequently.

The Phyto Lip Shine has a wear of a couple of hours for the Sheer Papaya Shade, and as the Sheer Berry shade seems to have a little more pigmentation, it also lasts a little longer on the lips, approx. 3-4 hours, also surviving drinks of water and a snack, leaving behind a touch of a stain on the lips.

But even when it has worn completely off, my lips feels so soft and smooth, so the included mango butter clearly works its magic on the lips.

At $50 each the Phyto Lip Shines are at the higher end of lipsticks, but they are also not only feels like luxury on the lips, they also scream luxury with the Sisley ‘S’ on the silver packaging and the red velvet pouch that they come in.

It is simply the perfect lipstick when you are after a sheer finish with just a touch of a shine, and if you can afford the splurge, you won’t be disappointed. I certainly wouldn’t mind getting hold of a few more colours, especially of the darker shades.
