A while back I got two Sisley lipsticks and was not overly impressed given the price tag. Last week I decided to pick up the much raved about under eye concealer, there was not anyone around to serve so I thought I’d have a better look at the line up, the shade L26 in the Hydrating Long Lasting Lipstick instantly caught my attention. I do have a tendency to always go for similar colours but there was something about this neutral pink, compounded with the temptation of a GWP ( skincare samples worth over £100 at John Lewis, think it runs out end of month) that sealed the deal. I’m sure when I last bought one of these it was £26 so was slightly surprised when it rung up at £29, so this is my most expensive lipstick.
The texture is soft and very smooth, you get full coverage and they last quite well, I don’t think it’s that hydrating though. They are scented with that rosy scent, typical to a lot of brands.
The colour is a medium, neutral to cool pink with a slight bit of rose; it has a really pretty satin sheen to it. Although the formula isn’t my favourite I’ll over look that, as this is a really flattering shade.
They had their new items out, two PhytoLip Star glosses (one Fushsia pink packed to the brim with shimmer, the other a shimmery warm copper) I really wanted Modern Fushsia but couldn’t afford to get it. There was also a new compact foundation but I’d have to check the ingredients first and I’d doubt the shades would be light enough.
I’ll review the under concealer in a while as I am having issues with it, but think it maybe due to my eye cream, so if you know of a really hydrating eye cream that does not ball up please let me know.
