Sisley Phyto-Ombre Eye Shadows and a Phyto-Lip Twist

Sisley is probably more well known for their skincare, I didn't even know they had make up until I saw Bubbly Michelle post their Phyto-Lip Twist and it looked so good.  I became quite curious and purchased a few Sisley Phyto-Ombre Eye Shadow and Phyto-Lip Twist after a lot of google research (meaning one thing lead to another).

Here I have Phyto-Lip Twist no.3 Peach, eye shadows are  Dune, Mango and Stardust

The lip crayon is very pigmented, like a balmy lipstick.  I like it but I don't want more of them for now.
Long lasting, not drying or very moisturising, slight stain, scent free and tasteless if you wanted to know.  For now, it lives in my handbag with a Dior Fluid stick.  I think it will have to live in the fridge once winter is over and spring and summer is back but I hope to finish it before that happens.

 Phyto-Lip Twist no.3 Peach.  You can see there is micro shimmer :( 

Sisley Phyto-Ombre Eye Shadow are hands down the most amazing eyeshadows I have ever tried. The pigmentation is amazing, a little goes a long way and blends like a dream and most important of all "no eye irritation" because the last thing I want is to feel like the wind blew sand/dust in my eyes after paying $$$ for XBR e/s.  

I don't know how it works but these apply really well on my bare skin, most e/s will not stick without primer and simply roll off.  The lasting power is decent without primer but there is slight creasing after 4 hours, it's still around after 10 hours but has that worn in look.  Primer is a must for the just applied look all day long and Canmake Lasting Multi Eyebase WP is perfect for my skin.  

Dune is not lighter or darker than my eyelids, it gives a slightly desaturated even look to my eyelids and can look glossy if applied heavily. Pale golden sheen...maybe. Very pigmented even though it can look like nothing in certain angles, I think it makes a nice inner corner highlight for medium skin tones.

Stardust is a complex shade, refined shimmer, grey silver leaning green.  I thought this was very close to Suqqu 06 Ginbudou's grey with the rare pictures on the net, turns out it's a tiny bit lighter and greener but I love it just as much as Ginbudou's grey and sometimes I use them together.

Mango is a orange peach colour with a golden sheen.  This shade shows up differently on my eyelids than in the swatch and it changes drastically if layered on top of other colours.  Disappointed and yet not disappointed because it became a nice correcting shade.  Anything that looks sickly on me can probably be fixed with a dab of Mango lol *cough like that mustard yellow from Three duo 05 Love Evolution.

I didn't swatch the golden brown that Stardust+Mango makes. Surprisingly they work really well as a trio. 

What is next from the range?  They have quite a few colours, I might give up on Suqqu and just get more Sisley because there are no third party resellers that make Sisley more expensive, if anything evilbay has them for cheaper than my local rrp.

So sad that I broke mango :(

Heavy swatch with fluffy brush

Black background for contrast (lighter hand swatch)

Btw, let me know if you want me to post more swatches with black background as well as the white wall version.

With some almost similar shades in my stash

The shade from Suqqu ex-12 is less pigmented and not just lighter, the only shade I like from it is the brown shade.  Suqqu shades usually swatch really washed out on my skin unless I use some primer like eproxy.

With some not similar at all shades once on eyelids

I hope the pictures and swatches were helpful.
