Review | Sisley Phyto Teint Expert All-Day Long Flawless Skincare Foundation

Klik hier voor de Nederlandse versie.

The two most important criteria for me when choosing a new foundation are 1) that it looks natural and 2) that it lasts the whole day. That’s why foundations like the Estée Lauder Double Wear Light Foundation and the MAC Pro Longwear Compact Foundation are amongst my favorite foundations. But that doesn’t mean that there isn’t room for another favorite in my foundation stash. Girls, meet the brand new Sisley Phyto Teint Expert All-Day Long Flawless Skincare Foundation!

Review (Sisley Phyto Teint Expert All-Day Long Flawless Skincare Foundation) (1)

The Phyto Teint Expert All-Day Long Flawless Skincare Foundation is Sisley’s newest foundation and will be in stores in September. It claims to provide flawless 12-hour wear while also nourishing and protecting the skin with its special skincare formula.

The Sisley Phyto Teint Expert All-Day Long Flawless Skincare Foundation comes in a very chic rectangular frosted glass pump bottle. My color, 1 Ivory, is the second lightest color from the range and has a yellow and therefore warm undertone. The texture of the Sisley Phyto Teint Expert All-Day Long Flawless Skincare Foundation is very light, smooth and very easy to apply and blend.

I was promised natural-looking and that is exactly what the Sisley Phyto Teint Expert All-Day Long Flawless Skincare Foundation delivers. I don’t feel the foundation sitting on my skin at all and it really looks like second skin. And yet the coverage of the foundation is more than okay. One layer provides light coverage, while a second layer – or application with a foundation brush instead of with my beauty blender – provides solid medium coverage that manages to hide all my redness, discolorations and imperfections. I usually just stick to one layer, but it’s good to know that even on my bad days I can count on the Sisley Phyto Teint Expert All-Day Long Flawless Skincare Foundation. The finish of the foundation is somewhere between matte and dewy and the light-reflecting pigments in the formula create a smooth soft focus effect. Lovely!

So how about that 12-hour wear claim? Well, if I touch up my face in the early afternoon by reapplying a fresh layer of powder to set my foundation again and to take away shine, the Sisley Phyto Teint Expert All-Day Long Flawless Skincare Foundation definitely lasts for 12 hours.

Bottom line? The new Sisley Phyto Teint Expert All-Day Long Flawless Skincare Foundation meets my two most important foundation criteria, and it deserves bonus points for its behind-the-scenes skincare benefits that come from the plant extracts, the ginkgo biloba extract and vitamin E in the formula. Yep, the Sisley Phyto Teint Expert All-Day Long Flawless Skincare Foundation definitely deserves a spot on my foundation favorites list!

The Sisley Phyto Teint Expert All-Day Long Flawless Skincare Foundation will be in stores in September for 123 CHF.

What is your favorite long-wearing foundation? What are your thoughts on the Sisley Phyto Teint Expert All-Day Long Flawless Skincare Foundation?


  1. Sounds nice, but 123.- for a foundation?!
    I’ve bought the MAC compact foundation because of your recommendation, but I just can’t apply it evenly, it always looks patchy and “artificial” :-/

    • Oh seriously? Well that’s not good. It happened to me twice when I came home from Greece and was using a different moisturizer than the one I normally use. I used a moisturizing gel instead of a lotion and all of a sudden my foundation balled up a bit and didn’t look even. So maybe the problem lies in what you use underneath the foundation?

  2. Ziet er erg mooi en natuurlijk uit! Fijn dat het ook nog eens verzorgende eigenschappen heeft. Win win!

  4. Ziet er schitterend uit! Ik vind je reviews altijd heel interessant, ik leer echt dingen bij over producten, vooral naar de werking ervan en de voor-en nadelen voor de huid. Deze lijkt me ook echt fijn! Ik ge ruik op dit moment geen foundation, maar als de herfst eraan komt ga ik me nog eens een nieuwe aanschaffen!

  10. I love the Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation and BB creams. I work 12 hour days in sultry Asia, and this stuff always lasts despite the high humidity. I might take a look at the Sisley, as I’ve liked some of the brands foundations in the past. I used to love the La Prairie Caviar Foundation when I was living in Boston, because it lasts for 12+ hours, and is similarly priced to the Sisley, but it’s far too heavy coverage for Asia.

  11. Owjee, ziet er zooo goed uit! Ik heb al de Sisley Phyto Teint Eclat, maar deze lijkt nog zoveel beter. Nu ben ik heel benieuwd!

  15. Wow, dat is een aardige prijs, maar hij staat je inderdaad fantastisch! Ik ben gek op de Givenchy Éclat Matissime, die vind jij vast ook geweldig; blijft de hele dag goed zitten en ziet er onwijs natuurlijk uit ^^

  16. The foundation looks pretty good on you! I guess that for the price I would expect the thing to last without touch-ups, but…that’s asking a bit too much :P

  17. I usually use just BB creams and mineral powders as my skin goes crazy with heavier foundation. This sounds good, but it is expensive especially when you have great cheaper options:)

  18. Hey Melissa, this looks lovely! The longest-wearing foundation I have is probably EL Double Wear Light, although it really doesn’t photograph well so I haven’t used it for a while now. Glad to hear this one actually works well for you! I like the yellow tone here. A lot of companies don’t make their foundations yellow enough for me ;)

  20. ooh sounds lovely and looks great and very natural on your skin! But this is just too expensive for me… because of my dry skin foundation lasts pretty well on my face so I don’t really need to touch up even if I’m wearing a foundation like the Bourjois healthy mix.

  26. Nice foundation and ginko really is a plus! Does seem that the more high end foundations have more yellow undertones than the cheaper versions.
    Jasmine recently posted…Chameleon inspired look

  27. I will definitely check out some of the foundations you mentioned, even if I’m quite happy with mine at the moment. This Sisley one is so expensive, though!
    Tanja recently posted…The castle

  28. The packaging reminds me of Dior, very luxurious looking! your skin looks flawless up close, so jealous! I DO need to give MAC foundation a try!

  29. This is a great sounding foundation… I haven’t found my favorite one yet but I’d like to try this one♡
    Launna recently posted…Love Will Come To Me

  30. Oh man I’d love to try anything Sisley! I have so many foundations to use right now so I probably won’t need it, but omg, this one is just so tempting!!! Love love love the finish on you, Melissa! But you seem to have a really nice skin to begin with! I wonder how it would do on my messed up skin haha.

  31. Die gloed tussen mat en normaal in is echt waw!

  34. Yaay EL double wear active. My fav long wear foundation:) I saw this brand around here in Turkey but didn’t know what to get from it. .it’s new to me . What do you have on for your eye makeup here? You carry off the whole smokey eye look so well!

  37. Hey Melissa! This does look very natural on you. How long would you say this lasts on you without touching up? I don’t touch up (only use blotting sheets) so would be curious to know. Thanks!
    Carolyn recently posted…Bobbi Brown Sheer Lip Color in Pink Taffy and Peach Sorbet Review & Swatches

    • Hi Carolyn! I touch up by reapplying mattifying powder. If I do that once a day when my face is about to get oily, the foundation stays perfectly put until let’s say 8PM or so.

  38. Je reviews zijn altijd heerlijk uitgebreid, ik blijf nooit met vragen achter. Ik ben eerlijk gezegd al helemaal overtuigd, I need this in my life. Maargoed aangezien ik way too much foundation heb mag ik hem niet aanschaffen van mezelf..

  39. LOL, my primary question when it comes to foundation is ‘does it come in vampire white?’ – *then* I can worry about coverage and longevity. :-D

    I like the idea of foundation with skincare benefits in it!
    Sylirael recently posted…The Painted Rogue Now on Facebook!

  40. The foundation looks pretty nice albeit expensive; it is Sisley-Paris. The texture appears to be a perfect solution for my needs and hope to try this one. Great post here!

  41. Hi Melissa,

    This new foundation is really pretty good on you !!!
    I want it too !

    So, could you send me its ingredient list please to check if it’s safe or not for my sensitive skin ?
