SISLEYA Eye & Lip Contour Cream

Hello People :D
Wow its been a super busy year for me and apologies for my absence. A lot happened this year few good things and few really emotionally draining incidents when I lost my family members but lets not get into that, life moves on and so lemme perk ya all up with all the good happening around. I also have travelled a lot this year, in India and internationally so lodes of the crazy stuff that I need to share wid ya all :D hope ya all had an amazing year and wish that the coming year brings lots more reasons to smile :D
So moving on I have seriously missed taking to ya all bout food...places to see...my fun filled experiences  and makeup :P I had visited Italy this year and OMG! seriously you just gotta see the crazy stuff I picked...I also tried a lot n I really mean a lot of skin care stuff this year and I have found my holy-grail product for my under-eye dark circles and dryness. No not kidding, this was one of the major things that have bothered  me since ages and so I also had to use a heavy hand on the concealer that would eventually get cakey by the end of the day but this product has truly transformed my life...literally!!!

The product is the SISLEYA Eye and Lip contour cream by Sisley Paris

I so wanted a cream that would do both, reduce my dark circles and also keep my eyes moisturised throughout the day when I apply makeup. When I was in Italy there was one thing I was sure I wanted, a good cream with Retinol and the SA at Sephora in Rome was very sweet and helped me out even though he could not understand English :P that cream after one nights use turned out gr8 and so I went the next day to stock up a tube more of that super stuff when I realised that I also needed a good eye cream and am so glad I met the right person at the right time. A lady from sisley was there and she introduced me to an array of eye creams,serums and masks and handed me a tiny box saying this is the crowned jewel of all eye creams, the moment you apply it, you will feel the difference in fine lines and dryness. That cream was costing 200 Euros :P I was like WHATT!!!! this tiny thing for that price. I honestly was tempted to buy it but then I decided to follow my own advice to take a pause and introspect, do I need this?? I read and reread all the list of benefits and realised that my skin was still young and did not need that kinda miracle treatment, also it was just a night cream, I need one for day use too but I knew I had to give this brand a try. 
The lady understood my concern and guided me to yet another box, a tad bigger or so I felt or was I trying  to justify my splurge I don't know :P
It is priced at 145 Euros for a tub of 15.1g.

The first 5 days I used this product I honestly did not see any difference except oily lids in the morning. I was kinda cursing myself for the impulsive buy but then it happened like magic, my husband on the sixth day said " u look fresh, slept well?" N I just looked in the mirror and my eyes really looked fresh despite the fact that I had slept just for 3hrs... U remember Akshay Kumar in the movie Welcome screaming Miracle or rather "Miriiiiicaaaaallll.....miiiiriiicalll " :p that's exactly what I was yelling along with a happy dance :D
Jokes apart I know this is an expensive product but I use it twice daily and I know this will last me for 5mths or more and it has cut out my concealer cost altogether, I honestly do not use an under eye concealer now after just 2 months of using this product which is a huge deal for me. Just a quick buff of foundation or a light swish of corrector and am done. 

It comes in small tub with a screw on travel friendly lid, has a thick creamy consistency, a mild smell which dose not bother me and has not caused me any sort of irritation 'et all. Comes with a tiny spatula. 
I know I am gonna keep using this untill I find something better than this but as of now....I LOVE IT!

The lady was also sweet enough to give me a sample of the crown jewel cream and eye masks...both r amazing really. The eye mask is sooooo de-stressing...it like an instant eye spa if there is such a thing :P 

Lemme know if you have tried this product and your verdict on other amazing eyecreams, I'm always on the lookout for one :)

Take care and have an amazinggggggg day :D

Lotsa Love
Priya :)

Hiya Fellas :)

OMG! it's been ages since I got in touch wid ya all :) hope you all are doing gr8 and enjoying life to the fullest :D
I've been dying to share soooooo many product reviews and all the other crazy stuff I was busy doing with you all. Two most important brands Sephora and Bobbi Brown have opened their stores in Pune and Mumbai respectively and what a treat it was to visit these stores. I was stunned on my last visit to Paris when I spotted a Sephora accidentaly, it was my very first experience in the store and since then had been praying that they open in Pune or Mumbai n they did...YIPEEEEEEE!!! :)
I was waiting outside the store on the opening day n getting all jittery. My patience paid off after 2hrs and 4 cups of coffee ;D and by now am sure u've imagined the expressions on my face...if not here's a sneak :)

 Super Super Happy n Smiling ear to ear literally!! :D

I've visited Sephora four times since it's launch and hauled some amazing stuff that really want to share wid you..soon. My most favourite stuff are the Sephore Lipsticks. Affordable, highly pigmented and long-staying yet non-drying...there summed it up in one line, INR 950/-

I also happened to visit the Bobbi Brown and Inglot store in Palladium Phoenix Mall, Mumbai... and did it once again...after all the promises and resolutions to shop what I need, ended up with all that I love..makeup...makeup n some more makeuppp :) I guess that why people call me crazyyyyyboutmakeup :)

It was so very difficult to choose from these amazing colours :P

Thats the happy...correction VERYYYYY HAPPY  MEEEE :D

Will be sharing reviews and lots more shopping wid ya all, till then take care, keep smiling and go grab a huge bowl of Ice-cream Funday on this hot and happening Sunday :) 

Lotsa Love
Priya :)
