I’ve been exploring more from Sisley-Paris and my latest discovery is the Phyto-Blush Twist ($68 each for .19 oz/5.5 g). This is the first I’ve tried from Sisley makeup-wise and it was love at first swatch. These Phyto-Blush Twists are twist up cream to powder sticks for the cheeks. They have a soft creamy feel but dry down to a powdery finish when you blend. As far as scent goes it has a very soft light makeup kind of scent but it’s not noticeable to me unless I actually try to smell it straight from the tube (huge plus for me). They are enriched with Camellia and Shea oils to keep the skin hydrated, yet they remain powdery feeling with a fresh look for an impressive amount of time. There are four colors, unfortunately one seems to be sold out everywhere. I received these as a press sample with one of the most fun boxes I’ve ever seen, it came with game board of tic tack toe.

  • 1 Petal is a pale baby pink cream, it has no shimmer and even though it’s pale, it still shows up on my medium skin, I suspect if I get any darker though it will be best worn as a base for other powder blushes because alone it might be too light
  • 2 Fushia is a bright pink, it’s very pigmented but can be sheered out for a more subtle look
  • 3 Papaya is a coral peach, this one also can pull bright but it’s easy to blend
  • 4 Glow (the one that’s sold out everywhere) is a sheer champagne shimmer, it’s sheer-looking on my skin because it almost seems to match my skintone (see it swatched on Beauty Professor where it looks a bit more visible with the contrast to tan skin, often times we are the same foundation shade, but right now she is darker than me)

At $68 each these are very expensive but readers have been telling me for over a year now to explore the line and have sung praises of their skincare. I’ve splurged on a couple skincare items and really loved them. For the makeup line I this is the first I’ve explored from the line. I did not expect these to last as long as they did. Right now in South Florida we have a cooler week but even back on the West Coast with cool or warm weather I found it rare that cream blushes last all day without getting dewy. I was particularly impressed with the fact that these do indeed last a long time. They look good from morning to afternoon without getting dewy. Below is how they look on my medium complexion, I’m wearing Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Invisible Cover Foundation in 125/Y315 with the Kat Von D Lock-It Setting Powder (I just discovered this and love it).

I’m usually a lover of peaches and coral blushes, but with this formula I find myself drawn more to the pink ones when I’m lighter in skintone. I like mixing the light and deep pink together for an in-between shade, but really all the colors are good. Glow is a nice one for that super natural looking sheen – it matches my skintone right now so it appears to just give the skin a glow rather than a sharper highlight. If you need a visible highlight this may be too sheer for you. Since it’s sold out I did a quick swatch comparison at home to find a dupe.

Bottom line very pretty, well made, long lasting and classic. They have a very chic French kind of feel in the sense that they can be worn for a natural barely there look, yet at the same time they can definitely be layered for more color. I like that there are two colors bright or deep enough that will show up on medium to tan skin tones. The pigment is good!

You can find the Sisley-Paris Phyto-Blush Twists at all counters now. Available at Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Saks Fifth Avenue, Barneys New York, Bloomingdale’s and Sisley-Paris.

    Oh they look really pretty but I can’t use alot of cream blushes due to inclusion of castor oil or zea mays cornstarch. Do you happen to have the ingredient list for these?

      I do! If you shoot me an email I’ll send you a quick snapshot of the box.

    I haven’t tried much from Sisley – barely anything to be honest. These look very pretty – playful packaging and sounds like good quality. I like Papaya a lot on you!

      That makes two of us πŸ™‚ I love the packaging too!

    These are all really pretty – I especially like the first two pink ones. I don’t much enjoy a cream blush, though, even though it sets to a powder – I hate having to blend too much, lol.

      I totally get that! Cream blush formulas can be tricky, so many times it can be hit or miss πŸ™‚

    They are really really pretty! I have lip twist lipsticks in few colors and they are so moisturizing and colors are so juicy that i might try these ones as well!

      Thanks Anete! I’ll have to check those out, I love juicy colors πŸ™‚

    This looks nice for traveling. The fact that it lasts all day is a huge plus! I may check out the orange one. Thanks for the review!

    This is something I’d usually pass by, so I’m glad you’ve reviewed it. Nice to know it dries down to a powder finish since I have oily skin! But too bad these probably wouldn’t show up on my dark skin tone. They seem so luxurious and pretty, though, especially Fuschia. Love the lip colors you paired with them, too!
