A few times a year you come across a product that you really wonder how you ever lived without. This new Sisley lip gloss is just such a product. Part nourishing, part beautifying and all gloss, I came across it by accident as I was looking for stocking fillers for myself on behalf of my husband. I have been faithful to the Clarins Instant Light Lip Reflector for almost two years. But it was time to move on. The Phyto-Lip Twist almost melts on, leaving lips supple, moisturised, slightly plumped and luminous. I have never been one for a lot of colour on my lips so went for number 1 called Nude. Then I went back for another because I loved it so much. Having tried every colour there was I opted for Balm, number 16 (pictured), which is see-through. The oversized pencil itself is not the prettiest, but you soon get over that once you fall for its effects. At £29 it's not cheap but I have yet to see how long it lasts, so it may be better value for money than I am posting here.
VALUE FOR MONEY: 3/5
