Today I like to share with you some eyeshadows which have been my go-to's lately, especially on those mornings where I have a very early start taking our little baby for check-ups at the hospital..

The Sisley Paris Phyto-Eye Twist is a crayon-style pen that can be used as bot eyeshadow and eyeliner, although personally I always 'just' use it as eyeshadow and use my regular eyeliner as well.

It has a rounded tip that makes it easy to quickly glide over the lid, and as it is quite pigmented, just one swipe is more than sufficient for me, as I generally prefer just a simply look, although you can of course swipe a few more times if you want to build up the colour even further.

The stick is beautiful and creamy, so you can apply it without dragging or pulling, and I like that after applying it, I do have a few moments where I can quickly blend it with my finger for the desired look. And there is never any need to sharpen it, as you simply twist it to reveal more product when needed. And let me not forget to mention the funky black and white zebra printed pen!

Liken all other makeup products from Sisley, I love that thought has been put into the products and they are enriched with plant based active ingredients, including green tea, white lily and camellia which helps protect the delicate and sensitive skin on the eyelids.

With combination skin and subsequent greasy eyelids, getting eyeshadow to stay put is usually a battle, but I have to say that Sisley has got it spot on, as even without using a primer first, the Phyto Eye Twists simply stays put all day long, no fading, sliding or settling into all those fine lines that are sadly creeping it. They really are waterproof as claimed, yet they are so easy to remove at night with either eye makeup remover, or micellar water.

The Sisley Paris Phyto Eye Twists are available in 8 shades;

1 Topaze
2 Bronze
3 Khaki
4 Steel
5 Lagoon
6 Marine
7 Havana
8 Black Diamond

L-R: Topaze, Bronze, Havana

The colour range is considerably small and ideally I'd love to see a few more colours added, including a few paler ones for highlighting.

I've got the brownish shades, Topaze, Havana and Bronze, and love every single one of them, although when I use just one shade, I tend to use the two lighter shades, Topaze which is light brown and Bronze which has a bronze shade with a greenish tint. Havana is more of a dark chocolate shade, and I love using it when creating a bolder look.

I am seriously in love with these Sisley Phyto Eye Twists, and know that I will repurchase again and again.

The Sisley Paris Phyto Eye Twists have an RRP of $55 each and are available from Sisley Paris counters and from Sisley Paris Online
