I am a sucker for a jumbo pencil application. Lip or eye - I love them all. I am already a huge fan of the Sisley Phyto Lip-Twists and swear by the Bobbi Brown Art Sticks (I live for the shade Sunset Orange) so I was excited to try these new eye pencil launches from each brand.
1. Sisley Phyto-Eye Twist - Just like the lip twists, these eye twists are creamy, easy to blend and effortless to apply. But after about 15-30 seconds, these set pretty well and do not move. I still like to wear them over an eyeshadow primer (because my eyelids are forever oily), but I can wear these all day long with no fear of creasing. Because the colors are vibrant yet easy to wear, I prefer to use these as my main shadow without layering anything on top. The shimmer is so slight and luminous that I don't want to dull it with any other color or texture. Naturally shade 2 and 3 made it to my top faves instantly, but shade 5 and 6 were fun liners colors on days that I wanted a hint of color. I live on the edge my way, you live on the edge your way.
2. Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Cream Shadow Sticks -The texture of the Bobbi Brown shadow sticks were much creamier than the Sisley eye twists, yet surprisingly lasted just as long. As soon as I swatched these I felt they would melt off within a few hours, but after a full day of work they were still going strong. The colors range from shimmer to matte, and I love using them to layer because they pick up powder shadow soooo well. They create a lot of depth in a look but are still easy to swipe on and blend with my finger. Though I am typically a brush gal when it comes to makeup application, using my finger for a quick blending when I am half asleep in the morning is sometimes necessary. Whatever works, right?!
