If you're regular reader of my blog, you'll know that I've got a fairly new love affair with Sisley Paris as their products are not only incredibly astethecially beautiful to look at, they are also such a dream to apply and wear, so I was so excited when the new Bold Seduction Autumn Winter Collection landed at my door step.. 

The Bold Seduction Collection draws inspiration from the catwalks and is feminine, strong and graphic with a touch of bold glamour. 

The collection includes the Sisley Paris Phyto Sourcils in Cappucino, which is right on trend in helping define and provide definition to brows and frame the face. Years of over-plucking has left my brows thinner and more sparse than I like these days, so a good brow product is essential, and this eyebrow pencil is a perfect choice. The soft pencil has just the right consistency to help softly and gently fill in the brows making the appear thicker and more even, while the handy spoolie comb at the other end helps comb them into the perfect shape.

Like all other Sisley Paris makeup products it has been enriched with skin-caring ingredients including acacia and carnauba waxes to help soften, envelope and protect the brows, as well as keep them in place, along with pro-vitamin B5 to strengthen the brow hairs. And once applied, they do in fact stay put all day, including the colour, which doesn't budge or smudge. The cappuchino shade is medium in colour and a perfect and natural shade for my brows. I also love that it comes with its own little sharpener as needless to say that a pointy pencil is necessary for a perfectly styled look.

The So Intense Mascara is enriched with vitamin-rich peptides and rice phytoceramides that promises to lengthen and thicken your natural eyelashes and make them stronger too within just two week. I've used the mascara for a few weeks, and have to admit that it is extremely difficult to say if using the mascara really has given me longer and thicker lashes, but that said, I also don't wear mascara every single day, so maybe I need to, to be able to tell a difference!

However, what I do like is that mascara separates my lashes nicely and gives them lashes nice thickness and volume after just a single coat, and following with a few more coats it gives my lashes an even more intense and dramatic look, all while keeping my lashes clump-free and still supple and soft.

And in spite of my sensitive eyes easily watering, it also stays put all day without flaking or smudging, yet it removes easily at night with waterproof eye makeup remover (that is all I ever use as I simply find it easier. This mascara is not cheap, but it is such a lovely mascara, whether you're after a simple look for casual wear or a more intense look for going out.

Next are the Phyto-Eye Twists, and if you have read my previous posts about Sisley Paris, you'd know that I am so in love with these eyeshadow pens, and I already have a couple of the brownish shades which are my go-to eyeshadow when I'm in a hurry, which, with a baby and a toddler, is pretty much every day! Anyway, now Sisley has added a further couple of shades to the range, including Khaki, a beautiful dusty green shade as well as Steel, a deep gunmetal grey. And while I am known to be very conservative with the shades I use on my eyes, these two new additions are just beautiful, but used individually on their own, but also in combination. The jumbo style pen can be used as both an eyeshadow and an eye liner, and it is so quick and easy to apply - and what I really like is that

Eye Twists they are so pigmented that a single swipe, followed with a blend with the fingertip, is more than sufficient for an intense colour that stays put all day long without budging, fading or settling into the lines on my greasy eyelids.

The eyeshadows have been enriched with green tea, camellia and white lily to help protect the delicate eye area 

The Phyto-Ombre Glow is really a single eye shadow that can be used either on its own, or combined with any of the other beautiful shades in the range. This new shade, Gold, is a beautiful, well, errr, gold shade, that is so stunning when used on the lids, both on its own, or with other shades. However, it is also perfect to use as a highlighter under the eye brows and on the inner corner of the eyes to really open them up. But it doesn't stop there, as it can actually also be used as a general face highlighter on the top of the cheek bones etc for a radiant healthy glow, but as a word of warning, you'll need to go easy as it is seriously pigmented!  

The Phyto-Lip Gloss is like a lipstick but with a lacquer formula. The shade Rouge is a rich warm red shade and the slightly thick formula is very pigmented, so goes one with a intense full covering colour payoff in just a single swipe, and due to this pigmentation is also has a very long wear on the lips of several hours, and even after it has faded, it leaves an even stained finish on the lips. The intense colour does however mean that unlike other lipglosses I find at mirror is necessary when applying this, otherwise it could quickly become a little messy. It also has a beautiful shiny effect that does make the lips look fuller.

The lip gloss is a treatment formula that has been enriched with Padina pavonica extract to promote a natural plumping effect of the lips. It also contains shea butter, kokum butter, sunflower oil, colza oil and vitamin E to help nourish, soothe, repair and protect the lips as well as protect from free radicals. And does feel very lovely and moisturising on the lips and even when it has worn off, you as well as it does leave the lips feeling soft and moisturised too. I really love not only the beautiful shade of this lip gloss, but also the formula, so I can see myself reaching for this on a lot during winter to put some much needed colour to my winter-pale face! 

Finally, the Hydrating Long Lasting Lipstick in Mandarin is another full-coverage lip product, offering intense colour pay-off in just a single swipe, while with this one, you can however also apply just a little and wear it with a more subtle stained effect. The shade Mandarin is bright orange in the packaging, and I do have to admit that I was thinking ' oh no, a beautiful lipstick that I will never ever wear because I am too much of a chicken to wear a bright orange shade' - so I was very pleased to discover that the shade in fact goes on in more of a coral shade with a beautiful but subtle sheen, so it is very wearable, even for me!!

The lipstick is also a long-wearing lipstick, and again, even when it starts to fade after several hours, it does so evenly, leaving behind a beautiful stained look. It contains among others calendula, vitamin E and C to help soften and protect the lips as well as add anti-oxidants to protect from damaging free radicals. And it too, feels very comfortable on the lips, almost as if you just wearing a lip balm. And, like all other Sisley Paris products the packaging is just out of this world - this one coming in a gold packaging with the unique 'S' cut-outs, as well as the black velvet pouch!
