Sisley Phyto-Eye Twist and Phyto-Lip Twist: Foolproof Beautiful Makeup in a Jiffy

Sisley Phyto-Eye and Lip
A lot of us are not aware that Sisley has been present in Malaysia for quite some time. I remember when I first started dipping my toes in beauty blogging, Maybank credit card was kind enough to have a few sampling exercise. It was not just any ordinary sachet sample redemption but what I get was a whole complete deluxe size trial kit in a pouch worth RM150, if I’m not mistaken. This generous redemption happened not just once but two to three times! 😀 . That is how I got to know the brand Sisley. I had a good first impression on the brand as the beauty advisor did not hard-sell their products during the redemption. Usually brand like this attracts me more to ask and fiddle with the products.

Fast forward to four years later, today, Sisley Malaysia had its first ever blogger get-together two months ago. It was a good one as we get to see, smell, and trial some Sisley skincare products as well as their makeup. Specifically the Phyto-Eye Twist and Phyto-Lip Twist. I have been wearing these two product frequently. It is fast and easy to use makeup products.

Baaammm! I bet you did not see this coming. Product swatches on second photo? What? Yes. I want to show you the swatches of the two Phyto Twist products I had with me before I go into detail.

Phyto-Eye Twist (RM170)

Sisley Phyto-Eye Twist 1
Phyto-Eye Twist is a 2-in-1 product; an eyeshadow that doubles up as an eyeliner. Usually eye jumbo pen like this are designed to be a fool-proof, quick and easy to use product. No precise application needed. But what makes a good eye jumbo pen having to be spoilt with choices in the beauty market recently? Sisley’s Phyto-Eye Twist are infused with skincare formula such as plant-based active ingredients likeGreen Tea, White Lily, Camellia that works to protects the skin of the eyelids.

It comes in an amazing 12 shades, four of them being the new shades. The one I have with me is 3 Khaki, which is more of an army kinda green 🙂

Sisley Phyto-Eye Twist 2
Compared to all other jumbo eye pen I have, this Phyto-Eye Twist has a smaller tip. It is huge enough for Asian eyes don’t worry lol. Although it glides on like a butter and is a water-proof product, boy this sets in a short few seconds! I would strongly suggest you to work on the blending on one eye first before applying on the other. Work fast is the key here. No precise application is needed with this. It is so easy to use. On a normal outing, I would just apply along my upper lash line and use my finger to blend upwards towards the crease before using a transition shade to blend on the upper crease to create more depth.

Sisley Phyto-Eye Twist 3
It has a metallic finishing, which is absolutely beautiful especially on the lower lash line. Whenever I had this on my upper lid, I will line my entire lower lash line with it too. But I also like to imitate what I used on the upper lid on my lower lid so I would use the same transition brown to apply under the Khaki shade. This step is not necessary. It is complete up to you 🙂

Sisley Phyto-Eye Twist 4
On certain days’ outing, I like to take things up a notch by intensifying the shade even more. I would apply Phyto-Eye Twist #3 Khaki on the entire upper lid and blend the edges with my finger. Then using a darker brown with a fluffy brush, I would then apply on the upper crease as transition shade. This will blend and smash with the Khaki shade. Basically it is the same step as above, just more intense 😀

Phyto-Lip Twist (RM170)

Sisley Phyto-Lip Twist 1
Phyto-Lip Twist is also a jumbo pen type of lip product. In fact this is not just a lipstick but more of a tinted lipbalm. It has the colour of a lipstick and shine like a gloss. However, to me this is a cream lipstick. Not so much of a gloss. The moisturizing and plumping effect is amazing. I believe this attributes greatly to the plant-based active ingredients in the lip twist.

It comes in 15 shades, with 6 new summery shades added to the existing collection.

Sisley Phyto-Lip Twist 2
I was lucky enough to get a shade that suits my lipstick preference. When I saw shade 11 Litchi, I said “this is Fiona shade” and everyone agrees 😀 . Litchi is a nudey pink shade, similar to My Lips But Better (MLBB) shades. I love the huge pen tip. I can get my lip done within a snap of a finger. It does not have any funky lipstick scent at all. It feels good on the lips and does not dries out my lip. I read that an ingredient called Phytosqualene is responsible to keep the lips suppleness and moisturized. That explains it. I also notice that the product does not settle in the fine lines on my lips as Commiphora Resin Extract plumps and smooth the lips contour.

The point tip makes retouching a breeze thing to do even out in the public 😛

Sisley Phyto-Lip Twist 3
The zebra-ish print on the tube does not bothers me a bit. For a high end brand like this, no doubt a pinch of quirkiness like this can be a surprise to most people. And since I am someone who is into quirky everything, I absolutely love this! However the similar packaging for the eye and lip product is a bit confusing. There was a few occasions where I nearly apply eyeshadow on my lips lol. I should really pay more attention to the tube size 😉 . Phyto-Eye Twist has a blue “Sisley” print on it while Phyto-Lip Twist has a “Red” print. I can’t remember this. I am just going to stick with the tube size to differentiate both products apart 😛

Hope you have a fantastic zebra-day ahead!

ELF Kiss It Goodbye Lip Color Remover

ELF Kiss It Goodbye Lip Color Remover: Removing Liquid Lipstick Is No Longer A Pain!

ELF Kiss It Goodbye Lip Color Remover
For those who have moved to the darker side aka liquid lipstick, you will understand when I tell you that removing liquid lipstick at the end of the day can be a pain. It is especially a pain to remove if you have darker shade on.

I did not know that there is product that are specially made to remove liquid lipstick until I stumbled upon an online seller selling this ELF Kiss It Goodbye Lip Color Remover. ELF Cosmetics has been my all time favourite affordable product to buy, however this brand is not available directly in Malaysia unless you get it from pre-order or online seller like I did. My favourite iHerb site carries a small varieties of ELF products but not the latest releases sad to say.

Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip and Ultra Satin Lip

ColourPop Ultra Matte Lip and Ultra Satin Lip: Is It Worth The Hype?

Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip and Ultra Satin Lip
When it comes to lipstick, I am an absolute fan of matte lipstick. I am not into lip glosses, shiny lipstick, creamy lipstick that sorta thing. I want matte and nothing but matte. Liquid lipstick releases here has been a hit and miss. Somehow the formula does not seems to be right – too sheer, does not dries down completely matte, too liquidy and so on.

ColourPop came, making a huge fuss in the beauty scene due to the affordable USD$6 price tag. They first released Lippie Stix in five formula – Sheer, Satin, Matte, Créme and Glossy. Out of the five, I have collected one each for Satin, Matte and Créme, which I will talk about soon 🙂 . Then came Ultra Matte Lip with mixed review. And the recent release would be the Ultra Satin Lip.

L'Oreal Tint Caresse

L’Oreal Tint Caresse: The 1st lip gradation pen for eyes, lips, and cheeks

I love bizarre beauty products. Bizarre in the sense that it is something unique or never seen before in the beauty scene, and something that looks like ordinary but gives you the wow impression. And I especially love products that are not available in Malaysia. It gives me a sense of uniqueness of owning something that is not easily available here. The fact is, there is this product from L’Oreal that is available in Hermo.my that I am not aware of until last week. L’Oreal Tint Caresse is available exclusively at Hermo.my and to make the exclusivity even more exclusive, Tint Caresse is ONLY available for 2 weeks. Say what?

L'Oreal Tint Caresse
L’Oreal Tint Caresse is the 1st lip gradation pen that are inflused with tints from the most refined blend of precious flowers. It comes with an applicator with soft cushion tip which also works well in blending in color on the lips for the most natural ombre effect instantly. This is not my first time seeing such soft cushion tip design as I have used something similar for the eyes from Anna Sui before. But Anna Sui one was a pain to use so let’s not get into there.

Maybelline Velvet Matte

Maybelline Velvet Matte: Liquid-to-matte liquid lipstick that doesn’t turns matte

One thing I hate about Facebook is that they are changing the way news feed appears on our timeline so frequently that I’m constantly missing new updates from the pages I’m following. Maybelline Malaysia has been teasing us with their new matte liquid lipstick and all that does not appear on my timeline. I only found out that Maybelline has a new Velvet Matte liquid lipstick when I was browsing through Guardian Malaysia Facebook page for their weekly promotions (love Guardian promo). Coincidently, it was the last day of Velvet Matte promo price of RM26.15 that I just had to drive to a Guardian to get it. Before that, I google for swatches online and concluded that I would get MAT 12 only as the rest of the colors are just too bright for everyday wear. For me that is 😀

Maybelline Velvet Matte
Maybelline Velvet Matte by Color Sensational is a liquid-to-matte velvet finish liquid lipstick. What this means is, this is a lipstick in liquid form that would set to a velvet matte finishing. The concept is pretty similar to Anastasia Beverly Hills liquid lipstick which is like the queen of all liquid lipstick. I personally like matte lipstick, not so much of a liquid lipstick fan due to the hassle application but if it’s gonna set to a matte finishing, count me in!

Essence Longlasting Lipliner

Essence Longlasting Lipliner: Who would have thought a lipliner that cost less than 10 bucks is this good

Essence and I, we don’t get along. I used to like the brand until they screwed up customer service on their social media. Then came a nut case going after me on Facebook because the eyeliner pot I bought was all dried up and Essence did not want to take responsibility. It’s either this nut case is a hard core fan of Essence cosmetics Malaysia or she is someone working in Essence Malaysia lol. Anyway…

So. I’ve been hearing about the Essence Longlasting Lipliner for quite some time. I am on the lip liner kick a few months ago and it never crossed my mind to even check out Essence. Why spend on a brand that doesn’t care about their customer and customer service right? That’s what I had in mind for years. One crazy afternoon swatching at Watsons without any supervision and that’s it. I went home with these lip liners.

Essence Longlasting Lipliner
Despite the brand having a permanent placement in selective Watsons stores and they are quite easy to bump into, I always find that their products are either out of stock or they are not fully displayed. I absolutely hate shelves that are neither here or there. The Longlasting Lipliner are quite a new range in Essence and they are a pain to search for. It is always out of stocks. I finally found tons of it at Watsons Damansara Uptown. That afternoon, I bought just 2 lipliner – 08 Girl Next Door and 07 Plum Case. A week later, I took a casual morning stroll at Watsons Kajang and bought another 2 lipliner – 05 Lovely Frappucino and 06 A Girl’s Dream.
