Sisley makeup is pretty much to die for! I have a Sisley nude phyto lip gloss that I am completely obsessed with, and I think a whole new ‘phyto’ obsession is about to begin! Check out the Sisley Phyto Ombre Glow Metallic Eye Shadows.
The Phyto Ombre Glow Metallic Eye Shadows are such a beautiful texture. They feel as creamy as a cream shadow yet are actually the lightest, finest powder you can think of. I am totally rubbish at doing my eyes but I was so pleased with the effect of just a wash of the gold over my lids and the silver placed in the arch and the inner corner. The eye shadows were so easy to work with, even for an eye amateur like me.
The pearlescent quality of the pigment really lit up my eyes and my lids were perfectly shining in a really luxurious way, rather than a crude shimmer. This is apparently thanks to “plant-based active ingredients, including extracts of Green Tea leaf, white Lily petals and Camellia oil, that envelop the formula in softness to make the eyelids shine.”
Sounds amazing doesn’t it? The colour and finish was really long lasting, particularly as I primed and powdered my eye lids first. I love the way that it smoothes my lids rather than exacerbates any lines or looser skin which is where things can go wrong with shimmer. A new gel system combined with an innovative complex of spherical powders and softening polymers is the reason for this smoothing effect I believe. I used a brush to apply what you see in these photos but have since discovered that the effect is even nicer with finger tips. It is very easy to build depth too.
All in all, this is love! The only hitch, as always with Sisley, is the price. One Phyto Ombre Glow Metallic Eye Shadow is £30 which is some serious cash for a single. Although I think they will double beautifully as highlighters too, if that makes you feel any better?! Find Sisley Cosmestics at John Lewis.
