The Sisley-Paris Phyto-Lip Twists, $50 (!) each
Hmm …

These Sisley-Paris Phyto-Lip Twists are probably the fanciest, a lot of expensive twist-up tinted lip balms I’ve ever seen!


Miert van az?

Well…they’re $50 each.

Yeah, that’s a lot of tacos, son.

Sisley-Paris is a high end skin care and makeup brand (a la Chantecaille), and $50 for these is pretty normal of the line, but it still seems a little ridonkulous, doesn’t it?

Lip crayons with the texture of a balm, these are generally medium-coverage lipsticks with gloss-like shine and a highly moisturizing, plumping formula that’s very easy to wear.

Yup, they also consist of plant-based plumping ingredients…although I’ve seen, like, no plumping action from them at all. but really, though, lip plumpers normally don’t do a lot of plumping for me. If I ever find a product that actually transforms my lips from stern piano teacher to billowy pillow, believe me, I will freaking let you know.

They’re available in nine unscented, unflavored shades (five of them visualized here) — 01 Nude, 02 Baby, 03 Peach, 04 Pinky, 05 Berry, 06 Cherry, 07 Coral, 08 candy and 09 Chestnut.

Overlooking the Everest-caliber price, I think these are nearly flawless. The crème de la crème of twist-up tinted lip balms. very moisturizing, smooth, easy to apply and available in a great range of colors.

Wear time isn’t bad, either, for what they are. I get about two hours.

On top of everything else, the sassy zebra packaging does a lot for my soul (I love me some animal prints! — which I didn’t fully realize until this year).

I think these are a terrific product, but it’s hard to justify $50 for what’s essentially a medium-coverage tinted lip balm. If they were around $17 instead, like the Clinique Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Colour Balms (or $9 for the Neutrogena MoistureSmooth color Sticks), I could see these belonging in all of my friends’ purses.

This may be crazy (it probably is), but for some reason $50 for an indulgent Tom Ford lipstick seems absolutely sane to me, but $50 for a moderately pigmented tinted lip balm seems like a stretch.

I dunno… maybe I’ve just inhaled a little too much texturizing spray.


If you’re interested, the Sisley-Paris Phyto-Lip Twists are available now online and at Neiman Marcus stores.

“Sisley-Paris Phyto-Lip twist is a tinted balm, colored like a lipstick and shiny like a gloss. It is applied with a single “twist” and leaves the lips supple, moisturized, visibly smoothed and plumped thanks to its cocktail of original plant-based active ingredients. Its ultra-sensory smooth glide-on texture reinvents lipstick.

“Its luminous, easy-to-wear shades match any occasion, from virtual nude to intense color. fun and practical, this new XXL pencil does not need a sharpener.

“How to Use: applied like a lipstick the idea is the best size for outlining and coloring the lips in a single stroke. apply a single coat for a sheen of glossy color, or add a lot more for a stronger, sensational flash of color.

“About Sisley-Paris: When Hubert d’Ornano founded Sisley-Paris in 1976, his use of botanical active ingredients and essential oils in appeal products was an innovative concept. Today, Sisley continues its tradition of pioneering new treatments with research from its own laboratories. The French collection features a full range of skin care, makeup, and fragrances.”
