Nude Lip Series: Sisley Phyto Lip Gloss in Nude

You may or may not remember my 'Nude Lip Series', that I started about a year ago. I was a huge fan of nude lips back then, and today, nothing has changed.

I have since added about a dozen or so nude lipsticks to my collection, and I've decided that it's high time I update my series. I am starting with a brand new lip gloss that only just launched - the Sisley Phyto Lip Gloss. I was sent the colour 'Nude' to add to my nude lip series, and here are my thoughts.


Packaging
Sisley has really upped its game packaging-wise! This lip gloss comes in a clear plastic rectangular prism, with sleek metallic details on the rim and cap, quite similar to Burberry's packaging, except without the check.
The applicator is a small lip brush, which is a good size for precision application (more relevant if you're using the darker colours in the range).

Product
The lip gloss is quite thick and sticky out of the tube, which translates into a longer wear time, so I'm not fussed. Once applied, the texture becomes more creamy, so it is very easy to wear.

It is a darker brown-based nude, so it looks very natural on the lips. If you're looking to whiten your lips, then you need to have anything from a dark olive skintone and below. If you're looking for a natural nude, then this is perfect if you have lighter skin. Here is a swatch of the lip gloss:


Performance
I found this lip gloss very flattering. For a lip gloss, it lasts for a decent period of time on my lips - about 3 hours or so without drinking or eating. Reapplication is definitely necessary with this, as with all other lip glosses.

I also found that no matter how thick a layer I apply, the lip gloss does not bleed outside my lips - this is a big plus for me, because I don't wear lip liner. This, plus the decent wear time, is probably due to the sticky formula. The stickiness of this lip gloss did bother me a little though, perhaps because I am now used to wearing light, creamy lipsticks.

Lip glosses are all about the shine, and this gives me a lovely glossy look without any use of shimmer or glitter, which is great because lip glosses with shimmer or glitter tend to fade very messily and leave glitter trails all over your face.


Pros vs. Cons
Pros
  • Pretty packaging
