Spring is upon us in Australia, but as far as I’m concerned- vampy berry lips are not just a winter staple. Here are two plummy shades by Sisley- one from their Long Lasting Lipstick line, and another glossier product from their Phyto Lip Shine range. After test driving these two in person- I’d say that the Sheer Plum Phyto Lip Shine is the clear winner for me. It has a more modern, hydrating finish, and a slightly warmer tone that suits my olive skin better- I’m wearing it today at work, and I feel that it looks great as a 9-5 power lip with crisp white shirt.

Sisley Long Lasting Lipstick ($62) in Plum is a dark mauve with silverish frost in a satin finish. I find this type of finish tends to be a little drying and catch on the imperfections on my lips, and unfortunately this lipstick is no different.  Pigmentation is medium but buildable to full opacity.

Lasting power of both the Long Lasting Lipstick and the Phyto Lip Shine clock in about the 2 hour mark, where it fades to a subtle stain.
