In 2013, Sisley launched a small collection of metallic shadows as an extension of their Phyto-Ombre Eclat range called Phyto-Ombre Glow, which is available in four shades: Silver, Pearl, Gold and Amber. This small but perfectly formed collection is a dream come true for anyone who loves their neutrals but fancies jazzing them up a bit, as these beautiful shades offer both the glamour of highly-pigmented and shimmery shadows with the ease of neutral, wearable shades.
The four shades of Sisley Phyto-Ombre Glow are:
Silver – a surprisingly warm take on a silvery finish that looks white in certain lights; this shade is an amazing highlighter shade.
Pearl – an everyday shade that will enhance and brighten the eyes and the finish is a warm, wheat shade.
Gold – this is the shade that anyone with blue eyes needs in their collection as it’s the perfect bright, orangey gold shade that makes blue eyes pop; I’ll try and upload a picture soon to show you what I mean.
Amber – this is both the darkest and coolest shade in the collection which packs a really strong punch of colour. It’s pigmented enough to be used as a liner, but it can also be sheered out for day wear, so this is probably the most versatile of the bunch.
The texture is almost sponge-like in consistency and you only need a small amount for a fully opaque finish. As you’d expect from a Sisley product, the quality speaks for itself and you don’t need to prime the lids beforehand. Once on the eye you’re left with a rich, shimmery finish that brightens and lifts the eye area – especially the lighter shades – all of which can be sheered out or built-up depending on what look you’re going for.
The Sisley Phyto-Ombre Glow Eyeshadows are available now priced at £30 from Sisley. However, John Lewis has them for £27 with extremely limited stock, so if you’re keen then act now to save yourself a few pounds!
