I am very much a lipstick girl but every now and then I will dabble with a lip gloss become terribly
disappointed and slick my lips with a trusted MAC bullet of colour once again.
My main reason for such aversion to lip gloss is that most tend to be weakly pigmented and sticky,
oh how I loathe sticky lip glosses but in walked Sisley Phyto Lip Gloss in Beige Rose
and I haven't looked back since!
I have yet to encounter a Sisley product that has not been presented beautifully and the Sisley Phyto Lip Gloss is no different, nestled inside a sleek mix of graphite, platinum and transparent accented tube
lays the most beautiful pinky brown lip gloss that does not come with a doe foot applicator (can I get a hallelujah?) but rather it comes with an easy to use brush on applicator - precision, mess and fuss free!
Now long time readers of this blog will know that I'm pretty faithful to my neutral lip colour choices
so the fact that I'm rather enamored by Sisley Phyto Lip Gloss in Beige Rose will come as little surprise.
Beige Rose is exactly that a pink gloss that has been tinged with beige resulting in a perfect everyday shade.
I would deem Beige Rose to be neutral in tone as it does lean slightly yellow and it is perfect for layering
over both nude pink lip colours and also your typical brown based nude.
To me Sisley's Beige Rose is essentially MAC Modesty lipstick in gloss form.
Here is where I come off as a hypocrite as I do find the Sisley Phyto Lip Gloss formula slightly sticky
but weirdly the tacky sensation seems to wear off after a few moments of wear and feels more like
a glossy lipstick on the lips than your typical gloss.
Pigmentation wise I do think that the Sisley Phyto Lip Gloss offer more colour pay off than other lip glosses
I have tried over the years, I would go as far as saying that the formula reminds me more of a liquid
lipstick than a bog standard lip gloss but with that comes a premium price.
When I first started wearing this gloss I did have a few dry patches on my lips but rather than accentuate
said patches it disguised them, which is a massive bonus in the winter months if you ask me!
In terms of wear this is when Sisley Phyto Lip Gloss proves it really is a gloss despite high pigmentation levels and typically I found myself reapplying ever two hours or so.
