Sisley-Paris has some amazing new launches which I have been excited about since I saw them on their social handles. I am a long time fan of their skincare, eyeshadows, and eyebrow products which I reviewed in detail. I have three new spring launches from Sisley-Paris to share with you today which include Sisley-Paris Phyto-Khol Star, Sisley-Paris Phyto-Lip Twist Matte, and Sisley-Paris Instant Correct Color Correcting Primer. The new launches are perfect for spring, summer, and all year long.
Sisley-Paris Phyto-Khol Star Waterproof
Phyto-Khol Star(CAD $70) is described as an automatically retractable pencil with an integrated pencil sharpener. The creamy and firm tip offers a unique glide and ensures perfect definition with extreme precision. There are 8 shades with multiple effects that give intensity to the look with sparkling luminous shades infused with a delicate glitter and mystic black shimmery shades with subtle reflections. Its formula with exceptional comfort and softness enriched with Rosehip oil, Bisabolol of natural origin and Vitamin E acetate, takes care of the eyelids’ delicate skin.
The eye pencil is part of my daily makeup routine, whether I am using face makeup or not, eye pencil on my waterline or lower lashline is a must for most of my days. I have sensitive eyes and I do like to stick to my trusted brands for eyeliners and eye pencils. I have been really impressed with these eye pencils. The shades are really beautiful, they give color to the eyes as well as a very fine and subtle micro-shimmer effect. They make a beautiful smokey eye as well as a beautiful everyday definition to the eyes. The formula is very smooth and glides on effortlessly on the waterline as well as the upper and lower lashline. One swipe is good enough to give the definition and I go for two or three swipes to make a statement definition of the eyes. I have experienced no irritation or watery eyes when I use these on my waterline. I am very impressed with the staying power of these eye pencils, it does take almost a minute to dry down, enough time to blend it or define it for an intense look as per the requirement and what you are looking for. I have the shades 1 Sparkling Black and 4 Sparkling Bronze swipes below for the references. Both the shades are a must-have if you have hazel, brown or black eyes. They do have a very fine shimmer which adds a little sparkle to the eyes but is not noticeable as such. 4 Sparkling Bronze is perfect for the days I am keeping my look simple and not much defined. 1 Sparkling Black is also a nice everyday shade which is buildable to more intense finish. They both are keepers and I am very impressed with the shade, lasting power, and ease of use with no irritation.
Sisley-Paris Phyto-Lip Twist Matte
Phyto-Lip Twist Matte(CAD $65) is described as a tinted balm colored like a lipstick, with an intense matte finish. Applied with a single twist, it leaves the lips supple, soft and more shapely thanks to a blend of plant-based active ingredients. Its ultra-sensory texture, soft as velvet with optimal adhesion, is reinventing the standard for lipstick. Its beveled tip allows for ultra-precise, even and easy application. Its shades are irresistible: luminous, intense, resolutely elegant. Fun and practical, there is no need to sharpen this new XXL pencil.
In a lip pencil, what I look for most is the formula, comfort to wear, shade, long-lasting, and the packaging. I have used and tested these Phyto-Lip Twist Mat tinted balms for the last week and again, I am really loving them. The formula is rich, ultra-pigmented, full coverage glides on very smoothly on the lips. They have never given me drying feeling or made my lips flakey, do not tug to the lips, instead, they did keep them moisturized along with the color which stays on for a quite good time. After few hours, there is still a stain on the lips. The packaging is beautiful, the size of the bullet is perfect for single swipe and pigmentation is great in a single swipe. I am really impressed with the shades, they all are perfect for any season and I am really looking forward to using them in spring, so bright and beautiful. They are very smooth and give a velvety feel to the lips. I have swatched shades:
19 Ballet Mat – Nude Pink
21 Ruby Mat – Pinkish Red
22 Burgundy Mat – Brick Red
Sisley-Paris Instant Correct
Instant Correct(CAD $115) is described as a color correcting primer for a more even and radiant complexion, instantly and with repeated applications. It makes it possible to create a perfect base by correcting visually pigment disorders. Immediately, it evens out, rebalances and smooths the skin texture for a complete correction. Day after day, the unifying effect is boosted by a combination of skin care active ingredients (Alkekengi calyx extract, Lemon extract, Iris extract). Skin is moisturized and brighter. Its fresh, ultra-light, and silky texture is applied like a second skin without adding extra thickness. Non-greasy, non-comedogenic, and perfectly adhering, the make-up can be applied immediately afterward, without the need for drying time. There are two shades available in this primer, Just Rosy to illuminates, give a healthy glow, and subtly correct dull complexion. Shade Just Lavender to neutralizes yellow tones, gives a porcelain finish for all skins and skin with yellow undertones.
The key ingredients in this primer include:
- Alkekengi calyx extract: smoothes, contributes to the proper hydration of the skin and protects it from environmental damage
- Lemon extract: unifies and lightens the complexion
- Iris extract: moisturizes and smoothes the skin texture
I have medium tan skin tone yellow undertones and Just Lavender is what I was looking forward to trying. I use this primer before applying my makeup and after my skincare products. It applies well with fingertips as well as a brush. I take a pea-sized amount and apply it to my face, just to mention here again that I do get spots due to my hormonal breakouts and also pigmentation. The formula is luxuriously smooth and lightweight, not very thick or watery, just perfect to glide on smoothly. It does not leave any residue or oiliness, soaks in quickly into the skin, giving a nice, smooth base for the makeup application. I see the pigmentation and acne marks are blurred, skin looks even, bright, and hydrated. I have noticed my yellow undertones look more unified and give it a look of not very yellow but almost neutral undertones. The makeup stays on very well over the primer and has not experienced any rolling off with different products I use in my daily routine. The makeup stays on well for an entire day, and my skin looks brighter and illuminated.
Bottom line, I am loving these new launches from Sisley-Paris, they are worth the splurge. Sisley-Paris Instant Correct, Sisley-Paris Phyto-Lip Twist Matte, Sisley-Paris Phyto-Khol Star Waterproof are available in Canada at Holt Renfrew, Saks, Nordstrom and in the US, at Sisley-Paris official website.
I have been a fan of the Sugar Lip treatments from Fresh Beauty since last few years and I loved them so much that I did try once to pick all the shades from Sephora but then I stopped to just use the ones I already have. There are two new additions to the overall Sugar Lip Collection, the subtle shade is the Sugar Dream Lip Treatment Advanced Therapy and the statement shade is the Sugar Punch Tinted Lip Treatment SPF15.
Sugar Dream Lip Treatment Advanced Therapy (CAD $32) is sheer pink in color, it moisturizes, boosts volume, and smoothes the look of fine lines. The Sugar Dream Lip Treatment Advanced Therapy enhances lips natural rosy color while providing the same age-defying benefits as the best selling Sugar Lip Treatment Advanced Therapy. It deeply nourishes and combats dryness all day long, boosts volume and definition, and smoothes the look of fine lines and wrinkles. The lips are fuller-looking, silky soft, and the end result is baby pink pout.
Sugar Dream Lip Treatment Advanced Therapy is a multifunctional product. It can be worn alone for an age-defying hint of tint, or as a base under your favorite Sugar Tinted Lip Treatment for sun protection and richer color. The key ingredients are Sugar, Sea fennel extract, soft orange extract, hyaluronic filling spheres, Cupuacu butter, plum seed oil, passionflower seed oil and Commiphora extract. I do feel my lips are smooth, moisturized, and supple. When I leave it as an overnight treatment, there are visible results in the morning, no dry flakes and dry lips are improved.
Sugar Punch Tinted Lip Treatment SPF15 (CAD $29) is luscious, vibrant in color. It moisturizes, protects, and smoothes lips with a tropical red-orange tint. The juicy tantalizing color is perfect for all skin types and adventures. Sugar Punch Tinted Lip Treatment SPF15 is a versatile formula that allows for buildable coverage to create a sheer or rich hue. The key ingredients are Sugar, a blend of nourishing oils, grapeseed oil, Vitamin C and E, Beeswax, and Carnauba wax. To use them both together, swipe on Sugar Dream first as a base, then apply Sugar Punch for a custom color.
Sugar Dream Lip Treatment Advanced Therapy is available at Sephora Canada and Nordstrom. Sugar Punch Tinted Lip Treatment SPF15 is available at Sephora Canada and will be available at Nordstrom from May 2018.
