REVIEW & SWATCHES: SISLEY MYSTIC HARMONY COLLECTION


As promised, I will be more consistent with my updates and here I am, second post of the week. :)

After all the instagram (@ThroughBeautyEyes) - filled updates in the past couple of weeks, me thinks its time to be back with the good ol' review and swatches, tested and tried out by yours truly. :)

You would have probably noticed that Sisley got quite a few mentions on my twitter and instagram (@ThroughBeautyEyes) as of late, with special tribute to their Autumn/Winter 2012 - Mystic Harmony Collection


"As the colour of nature change and intensify, Sisley introduces an Autumn/Winter make up collection of magnetic, intensified shades. Rich metallic blue for the eyes, accentuated with a sparkling grey green and lined with shimmering purple. 

I was lucky enough to be sent a few products to try out from the Mystic Harmony range. :)

*surprise surprise*

Courtesy of Star PR. Thanks Fiona for giving me the opportunity to try out these products!

I had to control not to yell out in excitement when I saw the packaging of these products (mind you, I was still at work) and couldn't help till I have my hands on these babies (thats what she said BAM)

Sisley has definitely scored 100% in the packaging's department - I am sure you guys will concur, wouldn't you?


 Phyto Ombre´ Eclat Eyeshadow in Stardust


 RRP $55

"Phyto-Ombre´Eclat combines the properties of natural botanical extracts with the most sophisticated make-up technologies, creating a silky, ultra fine quality texture that glides over eyelids and blends easily. Tested under ophthalmologic and dermatological control, Phyto-Ombre´Eclat protects and does not dry out the delicate skin in the eye area."

Silky and ultra fine texture - Checked.
Glides on like magic - Checked.
Blend easily - Checked.
Does not dry out eye area - TRIPLE CHECKED.
Not to mentioned, this eyeshadow is super pigmented and lasted all day long.

Yes, this little gem here ticked every boxes it claimed to be - which is pretty rare when it comes to beauty products.  I can safely announce that Phyto-Ombre´Eclat in Stardust has probably made it place to my Top 3 eyeshadows of all time and might have just claimed a HG status. It works perfectly fine on its own (during lazy days) by simply sweeping it all over the lid - or when contour with darker colours like burgundy, brown or black.

 Phyto Blush Eclat in Peach Duo

 RRP $65

 "Blusher duos created from ultra-fine micronized powder, gives you an astonishingly transparent make up result and a subtle glowing finish with just a single sweep"

Whilst this is not the most pigmented blush I own, I love the glow and subtle flush it gives my cheeks when I apply it. Do keep it mind though, that this blush is on the sheer-er side but its definitely buildable - albeit it does take more than two sweeps. This is the perfect summer/spring shade for you to add that summer glow to your cheeks, against your sunkissed tan! Me loves! You can either use this as a blush + highlighter or blend the two shades together! Multi-fuctional, yo!

 Phyto Lip Shine 

RRP $50


"A glossy, ultra-luminous treatment lipstick - more colour than lip gloss, more shine than lipstick. Phyto- Lip Shine is both extremely light and nourishing, with a treatment formula combining both intense gloss and absolute softness. Phyto- Lip Shine's formula includes kokum and mango butters help to hydrate, protect and provide comfort; sugar esters provide softness, comfort and shine"



Couldn't agree more with the statement "more colour than lip gloss, more shine than lipstick". At first glance and yes, I was judging a book by its cover a lipstick by its outlook, I thought it was gonna be one of those tinted lip balms with a hint of colour which is super sheer. But boy was I wrong - the colour pay off is pretty good given the fact that its super shine and moisturizing. Definitely the lipstick to go when you are having dry and chapped lips. 


Sheer Nude

Sheer Burgundy

The swatches on lips give you a better idea of how pigmented these lip shines are, especially for a product with shiny and moisturising formula. 

Just a couple of FOTDs featuring the products above:

FOTD using Stardust, Peach Duo and Sheer Burgundy. :)

FINAL THOUGHTS:

These products are indeed fantastic. All of them, especially Stardust. The only downside about Sisley products is they are pretty exy compared to other departmental store brands and Sisley is probably sitting on the "designer" end. Honestly speaking, prior to trying Sisley products, I never understood why would people splurge on "designer make ups" (besides my YSL Rouge Lipstick and Chanel LOL). With Sisley, I could really feel the difference in terms of the colour pay out and quality. I will probably not go on a hoarding spree on Sisley products as it will probably send me bankrupt. However,  will definitely consider (re) purchasing some of their amazing products. 

Hope you girls enjoyed this detailed review and swatch post on the Mystic Harmony collection!
