| Review | House of Sillage Bow Lipstick Case & Diamond Powder Satin Lipsticks

If you're a luxury beauty lover, like I am, you're going to want to keep reading because these are the MOST LUXURIOUS lipsticks I have ever seen! This lipstick has a Swarovski crystal-encrusted case and the formula contains diamond powder! I don't think you could beat this lipstick in opulence. It is THE premium luxury lipstick and I am happy to say it is well worth it. I was very kindly sent the case and lipsticks by House of Sillage, however; this is not a sponsored post and all opinions are my own honest opinions.

This beautiful lipstick case is an elegant and sophisticated bow, which absolutely darling and so unique.  These lacquered lipstick cases come in a huge range of colors (currently 10 colors) and are encrusted with 300 Swarovski crystals.

This is such a beautiful and expensive piece of art that I was initially a little scared handle it because it is special but it's a very sturdy piece. To access the lipstick, one end of the bow pulls apart. The lipstick case is held together by a very strong locking mechanism because one end of the bow case has a notch and the other a cut out to fit the notch, so they fit tightly together like puzzle pieces. While the modern trend for luxury lipstick cases seems to be magnetic closures, that would make this case extremely heavy and it already has a nice weighty feeling without being overburdening for a lipstick.

If you're like me and you worry about damaging or scratching your beautiful investment, have no fear! This pricey little piece of art comes with a beautiful satin pouch and a hard case that has a mirror for application! Traveling and carrying this lipstick around isn't an issue at all because it is well protected by the hard case and the satin bag prevents any scratches.

Yes, $198 is a lot to pay for a lipstick case but keep in mind this a very well-crafted luxury lipstick case that is refillable! Other luxury brands, you can expect to pay anywhere from $30 to $55+ just for one lipstick and the packaging is often not nearly as luxurious! The refillable packaging is amazing because, after your initial investment in the case, you only have to pay for lipstick refills! Also, and most importantly, you are minimizing waste! Instead of having to buy a new lipstick and trashing your empty case, you only have a lipstick refill's worth of waste, which is very minimal.

SHADES

The Diamond Powder Satin Lipstick Refill retail for $35.00 USD and is available at House of SillageNeiman Marcus, and other retailers. These lipsticks can be used without the case because they come in a shiny silver tube with a cap but the packaging is very light and the plastic seems a bit thin to be carrying about without a case. Also, you can't twist the lipstick out without removing the refill completely from the case, so it really isn't meant to be used without the bow case. 


To assemble the lipstick, you simply remove the refill from both sides of the silver plastic case and insert the end of the bow with the smaller hole. Make sure you push it in entirely and after it has locked in, it should easily twist up. When you want to switch lip colors, you can just full the refill out and place it back into the refill packaging.

The Diamond Powder Satin Lipsticks come in 13 different shades with a wide range from very nude shades to deep plums. There's a shade to suit every skin tone and preference. I broke the shade range up into color families, which shows the versatility and variety in the shade range. I also thought it would help with those looking to select specific shades. All the shades are named after titles of royalty, which very apt because you will feel like royalty when using these beautiful and luxurious lipsticks.

Swatches from left to right: Count, Baroness, Knight, Countess, Baron, Prince, Princess


Count - This shade is a very light peachy beige with gold shimmer. The pearl in the lipstick is very fine and adds a soft metallic sheen to the lips but it isn't too metallic or tacky. It's a very refined and sophisticated shimmer. I recommend using this shade with a lip liner for more definition or if you feel intimidated by the shimmer, use it to top other lip colors or apply a gloss on top.

Baroness - This shade is a soft peach-pink with gold pearl. This shade adds a nice touch of color and glow to the lips. It has a very wearable warm pink tone and the gold pearl is very fine and soft on the lips. I recommend using this shade with a lip liner for more definition or if you feel intimidated by the shimmer, use it to top other lip colors or apply a gloss on top. 


House of Sillage Diamond Powder Satin Lipstick Swatches

Knight - This shade is a light peach with gold pearl. This shade has a lot of shine and shimmer, which stands out stronger because the base shade is so light. This shade is best worn with a lip liner to help define the lips because of the strong pearl. It also makes an excellent lipstick topper for any lip color to add dimension to the lips. I recommend using this shade with a lip liner for more definition or if you feel intimidated by the shimmer, use it to top other lip colors or apply a gloss on top.

Pinks

Countess - This medium pink shade has a warm undertone. This is a very wearable light pink shade for a warmer skin tone but will suit any skin tone. It is a very fresh petal pink shade that adds a fresh glow to the face. This is a great everyday pink shade and will look especially pretty in the springtime. It has a cream finish and no shimmer. 


House of Sillage Diamond Powder Satin Lipstick Swatches

Baron - This shade is a very light pink with a warm undertone. This is a shade that works well for a medium to deep skin tone who wants to wear a light pink but doesn't want it to look stark against their skin tone. This is a very wearable rosy pink shade that has a beautifully creamy finish and no shimmer.

Prince - This shade is a very light pink with a cool-lavender undertone. This shade has a slightly white-base so, it is very bright and can be a difficult shade for deeper skint ones to pull off. This shade works ideal on a cooler skin tone and a fairer skin tone but that isn't to say it won't work on other skin tones. I like to pair this lip color with a simple cat eye and mascara.

Princess - This is probably the most vibrant shade in the collection and the name seems very appropriate, for what can only be described as, a cool-toned "Barbie pink". This shade is bright pink with a very cool-purple undertone. It's a very brightening pink shade, best suited for a cool skin tone and a fairer skin tone, but it is a very wearable vibrant pink that can work on most skin tones.

Neutral Pinks

Dutchess - This shade is a perfect medium pink with a hint of a neutral base but it does lean slightly cool-toned. This is a beautiful natural everyday lip color because it gives you that "my lips but better" kind of look. It is also the perfect bridal shade because while it adds color to the lips, it still looks very natural and fresh. I think this is a universally flattering shade that many people will enjoy wearing on a daily basis to look professional and polished.

Dame - Also, a very natural lip color. This neutral pink shade has a slightly warm, almost salmon undertone to it. This is very flattering for those with a warmer skin tone. However, I find on the lips it appears a bit cooler. This shade is a beautiful everyday lip color or bridal lip color, adding the perfect natural hint of color to the lips. Very universally flattering and creamy, this shade is perfect for a quick everyday lip color. 


House of Sillage Diamond Powder Satin Lipstick Swatches

Duke - This is the most neutral of the neutral pinks and it is more of a brown than pink. This shade is also a beautiful everyday lip color. It can work for a wide variety of skin tone and I believe it works especially beautifully on a deeper skin tone. This shade is a neutral caramel with a strong pink undertone and it makes a great nude shade for those who are afraid their skin tone will be washed out.

King - This shade is a warm-toned red with a very subtle orange tone to it. This shade doesn't contain any shimmer and is a true classic red lipstick. The warm tone brightens a warm complexion and pairs beautifully with bronzed skin and bronze tones on the eyes. The pigmentation in this lipstick is really rich and it really lasts on the lips.

Queen - This red shade is a very cool-tone red with a pink undertone. This lip color has no shimmer and has a very vibrant and rich finish. This red lipstick brightens any complexion and the blue tone will make your teeth look whiter. This strawberry red will flatter every skin tone and the pigment really lasts on the lips.

Plums

Emperor - This plum shade has a very warm tone and has a red tone to it. This is a very wearable plum shade and should suit all skin tones. It appears to have more red pigment in the swatch but on the lips has a slightly cooler plum tone. This shade is very creamy and has no shimmer in it. It's very rich and saturated in color. 


House of Sillage Diamond Powder Satin Lipstick Swatches

Empress - This plum shade is a deep cool-toned plum shade with a rich purple-berry tone. This is the deepest shade in the range but it is still incredibly wearable. I wouldn't say it has a shimmer or a pearl to it but it does seem to have an almost-metallic finish, which is extremely unique! I have not seen a lip color like this before.

FORMULA 

The formula of these lipsticks is very buildable. When you first apply the lip color, it has a medium pigmentation but you can continue to layer the color to full intensity. I appreciate a buildable formula because it makes the lipstick much more versatile. The ability to wear the lip color in different ways means it will work for a variety of looks and work well for any occasion. These lipsticks are infused with diamond powder from real crushed diamonds to even out lips, promote firmness, and add luster! I bet you've never owned a lipstick that actually has crushed diamonds in it before! That is the most unique ingredient I've ever heard of for a lipstick. 


It seems the lipsticks do come in a variety of finishes, some seem to have a pearl to them while others are just a cream finish. The lipsticks with a pearl have a very lovely fine shimmer running throughout them, so you don't feel any particles of grit or shimmer on your lips. They still apply very smooth and glide across the lips. I will say, that when it comes to wearing any kind of lipstick with shimmer, you should always prep your lips very well. The cream lipsticks are as equally creamy and they just glide on to the lips.

The formula lasts fairly long and the deeper or more vibrant the shade is, the longer it will last on the lips. This formula is not meant to be super long-wearing but it will give you on average 5-6 hours of wear, depending on how much you're eating and drinking. I don't mind reapplying this lipstick because it's an opportunity to show off the beautiful and luxurious packaging! Also, I would rather reapply a lipstick than suffer with something that is long-wearing but incredibly uncomfortable. As I've matured and gained experience in this world, I find myself choosing comfort over long-wearing beauty products.

I can happily say that this lipstick formula is extremely comfortable and hydrating! I found myself several times throughout the winter months with dry lips regardless of the amount of lip mask I slathered on in the evenings and these lipsticks glided over the rough texture, smoothed it out, and made lips look youthfully perfected! It's rare to find a lipstick, even in the luxury space, that will conceal and perfect rough texture but these lipstick do it so well. I just don't recommend using any of the shade with shimmer when your lips are in a rough condition because shimmer will emphasize texture, regardless of the formula.

The formula is very creamy and hydrating. It feels borderline balmy on the lips without having too much emollience or slippery texture to the lips. This lipstick formula is exceptional for wearing throughout the day and is particularly, good for dry or mature lips. The formula really helps fill out and smooth out lines in the lips, creating more youthful and plump lips. 


FINAL THOUGHTS 

If you're a luxury beauty lover, like I am, you will fall in LOVE with these luxurious lipsticks! Not only is the packaging exceptional and the epitome of luxury, but the lipstick formula is also! These lipsticks are for a person who not only appreciates beauty but the artistry behind crafting it. My philosophy behind beauty purchasing is always buy something that will have you constantly reaching for it. For me, that means the packaging of the product has to be just as alluring as the product itself and these lipsticks really check all the marks! The rich and creamy formula of these lipsticks is just so divine and luxurious. The formula and the beautiful case make you want to continue applying and reapplying it throughout the day. I have received so many compliments and comments about both the lip colors and the lipstick case when I am out and about. I highly recommend checking these lipsticks out! You will not regret treating yourself to one of these beautiful refillable bow cases and lip colors!
