Sisley Phyto Khol Star is among my favourite eye-pencils, but the price ($53 for 1,5 grams) makes me cringe. However, I was lucky enough to get the eyeliner together with mascara and lipgloss as a part of a limited edition set which was around $110, so the price per item was a bit lower.
Sisley Phyto-Khol Star is a black eyeliner with silver glitter. The eyepencil comes in a black velvet pouch and there is a genuine Swarovski crystal, which is the same colour as the glitter in the pencil.
The pencil is soft (but not as soft as Urban Decay 24/7 pencils) and silky. It applies smoothly and it is very pigmented.
The glitter particles are big, but they are very fine and the pencil won’t be scratchy when you apply it. Once applied, the glitter stays on and there is no fallout. I’m a contact lens wearer and I never had a problem with glitter causing irritation.
The eyeliner is wonderful, althought I’d prefer if the black colour were a bit deeper and more intense.
Even if you are not a glitter person, you don’t have to be afraid of this eyeliner. The glitter is very subtle and it becomes noticeable only from the close.
Phyto-Khol Star is a longwearing pencil. It stays the same even after 8 hours. It doesn’t smudge (but keep in mind that I do not wear pencils on waterline) and doesn’t fade.
