Sisley Phyto-Teint Expert Foundation Review, Photos + Giveaway



Sisley skin care and makeup is ultra luxe, but the new Phyto-Teint Expert redefines all expectations of a luxury foundation. This new skin care formula delivers on all fronts. I have not been so thoroughly impressed by a liquid-to-powder foundation before! This all-day long, flawless formula enhances the surface of my skin and provides a smoother, more even-toned complexion. Find out more after the jump!


Sisley claims the Phyto-Teint provides radiance and optimal coverage. True to its word, this new oil-free foundation hides imperfections using ultra-pure pigments with perfecting and soft-focus powders. Phyto-Teint is also non-comedogenic and more importantly, does not emphasize any of the existing blackheads on my nose. It does not irritate my sensitive skin whatsoever.


While the new YSL Fusion Ink and the ground-breaking Armani Maestro foundations are very popular, I believe the Sisley Phyto-Teint outshines them all. Most of these new generation, 'weightless' liquid-to-powder foundations tend to accentuate any and all surface dryness, but the Phyto-Teint manages to soothe and unify. I love the semi-matte finish, which looks very much like real skin while providing medium-full coverage with just three pumps. It does not dry down quite as powdery as the Fusion Ink or Maestro; Phyto-Teint maintains a suppleness to the touch as it settles. The botanical extracts like Frangipani blossom, cucumber, and glycerin soften and moisturize, keeping my skin comfortable. I actually skip the powder entirely on colder days! Most of my readers know how much I love powder, so that should speak volumes to the loveliness of the lightweight, velvety finish. 


Best of all, Ivory (1) is the perfect match for my skin tone. Since I tend to wear bronzer often, I usually go half a shade or so lighter for balance, but I love wearing the Sisley Phyto-Teint Expert in Ivory alone. I tap it in with my warm fingertips, and it does not oxidize throughout the day. I may try Porcelaine (0) and Vanilla (0+) during the winter months if my skin tone becomes fairer. Currently, there are eight shades available. 



Bottom Line: I have my hands full with testing the multitude of foundation launches this Fall, but Sisley's Phyto Teint-Expert is fast becoming my favorite and potentially my Holy Grail for medium-full coverage!

  3. I really want to try this foundation! How would you compare the longevity of this to YSL Fusion Ink and maybe an old favorite of yours like Lancome Teint Idole Ultra?
