Sisley Deep Silver Phyto Khol Star Eyeliner





As promised, here's the second Sisley Phyto Khol Star Eyeliner I picked, this one is in Deep Silver. It might or might not be a limited edition and in any case seems to have a more limited distribution online. The counters all seem to have it, but online I only found it as saks.com.

Deep Silver is an apt name. It's a grayed silver, not too light, sparkly or shiny, but definitely festive. The ultra-soft texture makes it a perfect product for a quick application if you're upgrading your day look in a hurry and want to give your lids some serious silvery finish. But it's not too over-the-top that you can't use it to draw a precise line and just smudge it a little or tone it down with an eye shadow and wear it during the day, given this is the only "statement makeup" you use. It's also great when applied along the bottom lashes- not on the waterline- for a very soft silver smoky eye.

Once again, this is the best eyeliner pencil of its kind I've ever found, which almost makes up for the obscene price tag. It has the Swarovsky crystal at the tip, velveteen pouch and a very sophisticated look, but I can't help thinking that a little modesty in packaging would have made Sisley Phyto Khol Star Eyeliner a lot more affordable and popular. On the other hand, maybe that's the whole point of the line. I'm just happy to see the beauty and quality.

Sisley Deep Silver Phyto Khol Star Eyeliner ($53) is available from Sisley counters and saks.com.

  2. Goya, they're infinitely better. No comparison, really.

  4. Oooo didn't need to read that Chanel comparison comment...

    I fell in love (from afar) with Sisley a few years back but the price is just ridiculous.

    Thanks for your reviews, very hard to find much as far as color swatches or formula reviews are concerned (but that may helpful to my wallet in the long run). I will enjoy vicariously through you.
