Sisley Phyto Khol Star Glittering Eyeliner………………The Price May Leave You Seeing Stars!
I don’t know a lot about Sisley other than they make very expensive skin creams; however, I am sort of on a mission to try out some new brands this year because i tend to stick with Chanel and Dior most of the time.
Walking past the Sisley counter, i decided to actually stop this time and take a look at what was on offer. TBH! I wasn’t really impressed with the makeup. The choices on offer seemed a little boring and quite generic. The glittering eye pencils did catch my eye though.
There were 5 shades ranging from grey, gold, black, green and the purple one i chose. I loved the grey one but i have a couple of then already from Bobbi Brown and Clinique and even though i own plenty of purple’s too, i thought this one just had the edge with its abundance of silver glitter.
A classic Kohl eyeliner ; therefore, it can be smudged out if you choose to create a smokey eye. There is plenty of silver shimmer on offer and it is immediately noticeable. The pencil is quite long, wooden, contains wild rose extract and comes with a purple Swarovski stone to represent the colour and shimmer of the pencil itself and the pencil does stay put all day without smudging or fading.
Now, here’s the jaw dropper. It is 1.8gms and costs £32.50. Yes, you read it right! My mouth almost fell open when the SA told me. Luckily, she gave me a few samples of the pore minimizing cream then!!
I did think about saying no but i do really like this pencil and i would have been too embarrassed to do that and NO, i will not be repurchasing, haha. Can an eye pencil really be worth that much?!!!!Quite interestingly, the Diego Dalla Palma Liquid eye pencil i bought for only £14.00 from http://www.marksandspencer.com, had golden glitter and looked very similar in appearance and pigmentation to the Sisley one.
Now you all know why i generally stick with Chanel and Dior. At least their prices are reasonable and give exceptional quality, hence their success and wide availability.
Have you ever bought something not realizing just how much it was going to cost, or are you all very wealthy? Have fun and i will see you all soon 😉
