Sisley Paris is a brand, the more products I try from them, whether skincare or makeup, the more I trust them. I am hooked on the Sisley-Paris Instant Correct Color Correcting Primer, Sisley-Paris Phyto-Khol Star, and the Sisley-Paris Phyto-Lip Twist Matte which I use every single day as many of you asked on my Instagram stories, which I reviewed here. I am talking about my essentials from the brand which I am absolutely adoring these days and hence are the essentials for anyone who loves the brand or who wants to get started with the Sisley Paris makeup products. I have a roundup of my essentials, which include Sisleÿa Le Teint Anti-aging foundation, Instant Eclat, Phyto-Blush Twist, and Phyto-Lip Twist which I have been testing since last few weeks and you will see more products in the pictures below which I will link for their detailed review.
Sisley Paris Sisleÿa Le Teint Anti-aging foundation
Sisley Paris Sisleÿa Le Teint Anti-aging foundation (CAD $220) is described as an anti-aging fluid foundation which provides a youthful effect make-up, instantly and throughout the day. The complexion is radiant (complex of 2 Micas and ultra-pure pigments), the skin is smooth (unique smoothing base), make-up stays perfect for 8 hours (Sisley Color Expert technology). Its skin care formula combines many powerful anti-aging ingredients based on the latest Sisley research. Most notably, it is formulated with Persian Acacia extract, a key ingredient of Sisleÿa L’Intégral Anti-Age, for cellular energy*, a source of radiance. The skin is more luminous and even–instantly and with continued usage. Signs of fatigue are minimized. In 4 weeks, the face appears smoother and more firm. The appearance of wrinkles is diminished. Skin is moisturized, plumped and firmer.
I have been using it for last three or so weeks and absolutely impressed with the formula. I would say, it has all the right ingredients and the formula which gives anti-aging benefits along with the giving the complexion enhancement. The formula just melts into the skin and gives a really beautiful youthful radiant complexion. The finish looks radiant and very natural. The staying power is really amazing, it last whole day on my combination skin tone. I do use a primer and setting powder on my t zone or on the areas I have used concealer. The coverage is medium and buildable. The consistency is good, not too thick or runny, blends in nicely into the skin. The foundation does not oxidize on my skin and stays beautifully radiant all day. Another thing is it did not break me out or have me any sensitivity or irritation. Apart from all the benefits that I can see on my face, means the way it looks to eyes, there are some good ingredients which are full of all the skincare benefits that ideally make it a really good all-in-one foundation. I even got so many compliments on my skin when I was wearing this to a get-together this weekend. This is one of my top 5 foundations and highly recommend you check this out or get a sample to try first.
For my medium tan complexion with yellow undertones, I mix 3.B almond and 4.B chestnut this time of year. I was more of 3.B almond a few weeks back in winter and looking forward to 4.B chestnut in summers. To use this foundation, apply with fingertips or a foundation brush, by patting lightly over the whole face, and if desired, to the neck and décolleté. Smooth the foundation with circular strokes starting from the middle of the face and moving outwards. Start at the base of the face and work upwards to smooth lines. Pat to finish to even out the complexion.
Sisley Paris Instant Eclat
Sisley Paris Instant Eclat (CAD $115) is described as a two-in-one product – an illuminating primer and radiance-boosting skin care. A luminous complexion is easily achievable–including reproducing the same effects taught by professional make-up artists with just one step & product. Instant Eclat immediately revives the complexion’s radiance, erases shadowy areas and signs of tiredness, while it smooths and evens skin texture. A complex of key skincare ingredients (Kiwi extract, Butcher’s Broom extract and Padina pavonica extract), acts on 4 key factors that influence the complexion’s radiance day after day: moisturizing, energizing, toning, and giving a plumped look.Its fresh, evanescent texture feels like a light, second skin.Non-greasy, non-comedogenic and perfectly adhering, it may be applied immediately before or after make-up without the need for drying time.
This is a really great primer if you are all about glowy and radiant skin. I am all about the glow and radiance, which in turn makes your skin look youthful and plump. The consistency is light cream like, very smooth and blends into the skin easily. It makes the skin look fresh, toned, and radiant. I use this both before and after applying the foundation, Before foundation all over the face to boost the foundation’s radiance and hold, After foundation on the contours of the face to catch the light and highlight features. On the days of no-makeup, I use this on its own all over the face to boost the complexion’s natural radiance for a nude, radiant finish. This is a really nice primer, highlighter and an all in one product for the skin to look healthy, toned, energized, and fresh.
Sisley Paris Phyto-Blush Twist
Sisley Paris Phyto-Blush Twist (CAD $85) is described as a blush which is colored as a cream blush, as soft as a powder blush and as fun as a Twist. It has a rounded tip for easy and precise application, even without a mirror. Its cream formula with a unique sensory experience turns to powder upon contact with the skin to provide the benefits of both textures: the unique smoothing velvety finish of a powder in a long-lasting creamy texture. Non-comedogenic, enriched with Camellia oil and Shea oil, it maintains skin hydration. Luminous shades, ready to blush, boost the complexion’s radiance with just a twist.
First of all, the formula is so lightweight and the packaging is so beautiful, just so easy to apply and keep it in your bag too. The formula is very smooth, buildable, and pigmented. It blends in very easily into the skin, like literally melts to give a beautiful flush of color to the cheeks. The finish is a radiant flush of color with staying power for over 7 hours for which I tested. I have shade 2 Fuschia which is really pretty pink flush on the cheeks, just dab the cute little tip of the blush on the apples of the cheeks and I am done.
To use it, apply Phyto-Blush Twist directly to the face. Apply the desired amount of color, then blend with your fingers using circular movements. For optimal highlighting, apply the Glow shade over the shade of your choice.
1- To gently illuminate the complexion and strobe the shape of your face, use the Glow shade on the curved areas of the face.
2- To slim the face, apply the blush to the center of the cheek, then blend toward the temples. Opt for a darker shade.
3- To soften the features, apply the blush to the top of the cheekbones. For perfect application, smile broadly in front of the mirror and apply the color to the apple of the cheek.
Also, in the picture is the Sisley Phyto-Ombre Glow Luminous Eye Shadow which I have been using consistently, especially the shade amber which I reviewed here. Another favorite for eyebrows is the Sisley Paris Phyto-Sourcils Design 3-in-1 Architect Pencil and Sisley Paris Phyto-Sourcils Fix Thickening Gel which I reviewed here and are worth checking out.
Sisley Paris Phyto-Lip Twist
Sisley Paris Phyto-Lip Twist (CAD $65) is described as a tinted balm, colored like a lipstick and shiny like a gloss. It is applied with a single “twist” and leaves the lips supple, moisturized, visibly smoothed and plumped thanks to its cocktail of original plant-based key ingredients. Its ultra-sensory smooth glide-on texture reinvents lipstick. Its luminous, easy-to-wear shades match any occasion, from virtual nude to intense color. Fun and practical, this new XXL pencil does not need a sharpener.
I am really liking the formula of this tinted balm, I would say one of my favorite formula which moisturizes and also gives color to the lips. It is very comfortable to wear, apart from making my lips smoother, I do feel they are soft, hydrated, and plump after the product is worn off. The staying power is nice, keeping in mind it is very hydrating too, it stays on well for over 4 hours with a little tint, I then reapply as and when needed during the day. I have shade 15 nut which is beautiful rosey beige and looks very natural.
To use it, applied like a lipstick the tip is the perfect size for outlining and coloring the lips in a single stroke. Apply a single coat for a sheen of glossy color, or add more for a stronger, stunning flash of color.
