Sisley Phyto Lip Twist

It's well known that I'm a chubby lipstick addict. I am on a mission to collect one of every chubby lipstick pencil ever made. So far, I'm doing pretty well with this mission, but since more brands are releasing chubby lip products I may well fall behind soon. 
Sisley's Phyto Lip Twist is the latest chubby stick to join my collection and it's a great addition. This is quite a weighty, twist up stick, it feels substantial and not at all flimsy, which is exactly what I'd expect from a premium brand. The body and lid are both made of metal, which explains the weighty feel. And how gorgeous is the zebra print packaging!
I have this in shade 2, Baby, which Sisley describes as a tender pink.
One layer provides a sheer wash of glossy colour and two layers provides an opaque, long lasting coverage. Those of you who don't like fragrance will be happy to know these are fragrance free.

Phyto Lip Twist is very comfortable to wear, it's lightly hydrating and once it's on I can't feel it on my lips at all. The wear time is great, if I apply two layers it lasts for at least four hours before the colour starts to fade. 

Both photos were taken in natural light with no flash. The lip swatch is one layer, as you can see, even one layer provides great coverage. 

There are six shades available, Nude (soft beige), Baby (tender pink), Peach (zesty coral), Pinky (luminous fuchsia pink), Berry (succulent plum) and Cherry (intense red).  

Whilst these are on the high end of the price scale, I think they are worth it when you want a splurge. The packaging is beautiful, they wear really well and are weightless once applied. I'm planning on getting Nude next.
Phyto Lip Twist costs $50 and is available at David Jones stores.
