Getting Pretty in Sisley French Luxe: Mystic Harmony Collection

When I used my first Sisley product a few years back (it was the hydra-global moisturiser), I remember enjoying opening it’s luxe packing to find a beautiful product inside.

The products are always functional and the packaging practical but full of the French elegance and chic-ness.

And that’s how I always think of this plant based French brand that was one of the pioneers to use botanical actives in their skincare range back in 1976.


It was only recently that I realised Sisley was more than just an botanical based skincare – in fact they have quite a full line of beauty products as well and I had the opportunity to play with its latest makeup collection: the Mystic Harmony Range for the 2012 Autumn/Winter season.
How pretty and wearable are the colours in the collection?
The collection features midnight blue, star dust and amethyst eye shadows and Kohl pencils, an eyebrow pencil, lipsticks, blush, and liquid illuminator in copper touch.

What captured me from the collection most were the lip and eye products.

Phyto Lip Shine In Sheer Burgandy -RRP A$50

Sheer burgundy is a as its name suggest, a burgundy wine hue that adjusts on my lips to a port wine with a hint of golden shimmer.
The Packaging is luxe as ever in a heavy silver metal case with a red S engraved into the lid and closes with that satisfying click to indicate it's securely shut. It also comes with a velvet case for storage and prevent scratching of the mirror-like surface of the metal case.
Phyto Lip Shine wears more like a hydrating lipbalm than a lipstick but provides a medium stained finish. I also love the fact it adds colour & shine like a gloss to plump up and minimises the lines on my lips.
Actually I love this finish so much I’ve pretty much neglected most of my other lip products the last couple of week as I don’t need to condition my lips or top up with gloss with this single product. I wouldn’t mind more shades from this range and love the shiny bitten stained look.

Phyto Ombre Eclat (eyeshadow) in Sorbet – RRP A$55


Sorbet is a light pearlised sand colour that works well as a base on skin or to add sheer colour and highlights to the lids of eyes. The texture is soft and silky and provides a smooth finish on lids without any fall out.

Like its skincare products, the makeup from Sisley is impressive. They are a luxury addition to your main makeup collection and if there is only one thing you can pick up from them, I’d highly recommended the lip shine.

Sisley and its Mystic Harmony collection is available now exclusively at David Jones stores.
