I have some new Sisley launches to review today! They recently added a few things to their makeup line including the new Sisley Le Phyto-Blush ($80 each) and So Stretch Mascara ($72). With anything Sisley you can expect that the price points will be extremely high but the quality is always exceptional. I personally really love their skincare and hair care line. I have a few favorites in their makeup but haven’t tried a lot.
So Stretch Mascara
The So Stretch Mascara is a lengthening mascara that performs well for me. It lengthens and defines and does not smudge. It does a pretty good job at holding the curl even though it’s not waterproof. The applicator is perfect for my lashes – it did a good job at coating them all evenly while defining them. No clumping at all! I have low expectations for most mascaras and I like this one enough that I will repurchase in a few months.
Le Phyto Blush
The Le Phyto Blush is a powder blush with a soft texture that blends beautifully into the skin. I purchased two from Nordstrom and the Sisley team also sent a couple for me to try. There are some matte finish colors that have a soft satin matte and then there are a couple of shimmers that act more like highlighters on my skin. I like that they add a nice chic flush of color to the face. For my skin tone I think the colors I ended up with are best when layered together but I swatched them and applied them on my face below just by themselves. These come in a beautiful mirrored compact that is super sturdy.
I found lasting power to be pretty good! For the shimmers I noticed it emphasized some texture when I applied them alone like a blush. For me the shimmery colors are best as a soft highlighter. Formula-wise these are excellent. Color-wise I think they can be easily duped with other brands. While the quality, pigment, texture and packaging are beautiful I have a hard time saying these are worth the $80 price tag.
Colors I have below, 1 Pink Peony is a soft matte baby pink
3 Coral is a matte coral
4 Golden Rose is a peachy rose pink in the pan, on my skin it looks more like a soft gold shimmer
6 Shimmer is a light champagne colored shimmer
Swatches below, along side comparison swatches to some of their Phyto Blush Twist:
On the skin, also wearing the new Chanel Sublimage L’Essence de Teint in B40 (review soon, but I think it is incredible!), YSL Touche Eclat in Shade 4.5, Sisley Phyto Poudre Compact in 3 Sandy (love this for a soft pressed matte powder). Lips for each blush listed below:
- Sisley Le Phyto Blush in 1 Pink Peony with Phyto Lip Twist in 2 Baby (swatched here too)
- Sisley Le Phyto Blush in 3 Coral with Le Phyto-Gloss in 6 Paradise (review here)
- Sisley Le Phyto Blush in 4 Golden Rose with Phyto Lip Twist in 11 Litchi
- Sisley Le Phyto Blush in 6 Shimmer on top of Laura Mercier Powder Blush Fresco with Charlotte Tilbury Lipstick in Nude Romance on the lips
Overall solid launches and quality-wise everything is excellent, true to Sisley’s usual standards. Performance is good for everything and I think you will love them if you try. I don’t know that I can say I think they are worth the steep price tag when you can find colors that have a similar vibe for the blushes.
Pink Peony and Coral and Mascara provided for review. Other shades purchased by me.
