10 June 2015


as a stay-at-home mum, I rarely wear the full on makeup as I used to when I was working in the corporate world. Catching up with mother’s group or taking my boy shopping or to the playground, to me, rarely calls more than casual makeup, which is also why I’ve lately been favouring lipglosses over lipsticks as they are simply quicker to apply. So when I was asked to trial some of the new 2015 colours from the Sisley Paris Phyto Lip Twist Tinted Balm Range, I happily accepted. Here are my thoughts;

What They Say:

Colour, care and shine in a single "twist". Phyto-Lip Twist is a tinted balm, coloured like a lipstick and shiny like a gloss. It is applied with a single "twist" and leaves the lips supple, moisturised, visibly smoothed and plumped thanks to its cocktail of original plant-based active ingredients. Its ultra-sensory smooth glide-on texture reinvents lipstick. Its luminous, easy-to-wear shades match any occasion, from sheer nude to intense colour. Fun and practical, this new XXL pencil does not need a sharpener.

RRP: $50 - Available from David Jones

What I Say:

Following the success of the initial launch of the Phyto Lip Twists, Sisley has now launched three new colours for the 2015 winter season. I tried shades 8 Candy and 9 Chestnut, but there is also a shade 7 Coral available in the range, that now totals nine shades.

I love using lipglosses, but have to admit that I too, like the rest of the world have taken to makeup in crayon form, whether it is eyeshadows, blush or for my lips, as it is simply so quickly and easy to apply. And these Phyto Lip Twists are no exception.

The pointed tip is perfect for outlining the lips and colouring in the lips at the same time.

And just one layer gives the lips a nice wash of colour with a beautiful glossy sheen at the same time, thanks to containing micro-shimmer that gives just the right amount of gloss without being too shimmery! And of course you can easily add another layer or two, builds up the colour making it stronger and more intense. And all without any stickiness.

And the Lip Twists soft and creamy and easy to apply, and they are so beautiful to wear too, feeling soft and comfortable on the lips, as they moisture and soothe the lips at the same time as they’ve been enriched with phytosqualene which is derived from Olive oil that maintains the skin’s softness and elasticity for visibly moisturised and protected lips, and as well as Commiphora Resin Extract that smoothes the lips and contours thanks to its firming effect.

And how can you not love the design of the Lip Twists, as they come with a stunning black and white Zebra print, they simply look fresh and modern. And what’s even better I tat you never need to sharpen the pens, as you can simply twist it up to reveal more lip balm as you need it.

The Lip Twists have a wear of a few hours, less if you eat or drink, but personally I find that reasonable, and I really love that they wear off evenly, and even when the colour is gone, you are left with soft and moisturised lips, almost as if you’ve just worn a lip balm!

All in all I really like these Lip Twists as they are so easy to apply in just one stroke, and the slimline formula is the perfect size for carrying in your handbag too, although it’s almost a shame not to have it out on display! Highly recommended.
