I loved this foundation very much when I tried it for the first time. It is very runny, quite pigmented (medium to full coverage I'd say), and gives a semi matte finish. For someone with very dry skin, who usually goes for very sheer, dewy finish type foundations, this was quite a change for me, but I loved it because it still looked very natural and covered all my imperfections in one layer. It also stayed on for hours, and after some serious digging I managed to find a color that suited my very fair, cool toned skin.As it is quite expensive, I did not buy the product straight away but got a sample to try first. This turned out to be a good thing because this foundation oxidized like crazy on me. After just a few hours, I turned bright orange. Needles to say I did not end up buying this foundation.However, I think that if this foundation does not oxidize on you it can be a fantastic choice, especially if you're looking for a matte but still natural looking, good coverage foundation that will work on dry sensitive skin.

Every time I finish a bottle of Koh Gen Do Aqua foundation I try to seek a better substitute. I like a sheer coverage, oil-free base for summer. Phyto Teint fits the bill in that sense: the finish is matte yet luminous, it is super easy to blend and does not sit in lines AT ALL! (even better than KGD), and it`s also very long lasting with a light setting of powder. I am 012 for KGD Aqua and Ivory for Phyto Teint and the color match is just great for my complexion. I did not experience any oxidation after more than 10 hours. The reason that I will not repurchase is that it is incredibly expensive, has a fragrance which I am not too crazy about, and has no SPF whatsoever.

I used this one 2 bottles .....long time ago when I graduated and wanted something new.The foundation is satin texture , rich , easy to blend on your skin . It keep your skin look glow all day. At the end of the day , the color change to slightly dark on my skin . I live in a hot climate , so this product is quite oily when I stay in the sun , sweat ... doesn't look good.I think this product is good when you use in winter , low humidity . All of them have PINK undertone . I'm asian with yellow under tone , I can't wear it often . But I do love its rich luxurious texture on my skin.

This is the best foundation I have ever used but it is way too expensive to be practical for me. If you've got money to burn though, buy it!

This is a really lovely foundation, satiny and natural light coverage, can be built up a little but not good for covering anything major, the only real thing that out me off is THE SMELL! It has this fragrance packed scent that makes my face wreak of a grandmas powder table and I really can't handle it, these days I just seem to have a weak stomach for anything that is scented and this is one of those things :(

I am very conflicted about buying this again because the price is utterly ridiculous and this is definitely a every day wear rather than special occasion type of foundation as it has only light coverage in my opinion. I have maybe 2 or 3 face fulls of my bottle left now and ive been desperately trying to find a cheaper alternative but there simply isn't one. The main positive points for me about this foundation are that the colour 0 porcelain is an excellent match (very hard to come by when you are the colour of clotted cream!), and that it really does stand up to my oily skin with no fear of clogging or irritation. It also gives a lovely matte but not flat or dead looking finish and never settles in pores.My complaints are that in order to get even medium coverage (I have loads if acne scars and usually a few spots) I have to stipple onquite heavily with a beauty blender. The effect is lovely and airbrushed this way although it uses a ton of very expensive product. The other things that bother me are the smell and the fact that when my skin is dry it can show up flakes quite a lot and itdoes look very powdery when first applied but this wears off quickly as I am so oily! Overall its a lovely product and one of the best I've found but I think I will keep looking for something else a bit longer before I cave and buy it again!

This foundation has some good qualities, lightweight, it minimizes pores, does not accentuate dry, flakey skin, lasts all day it provided a natural, slightly matte finish. When I applied this foundation it looked great very natural, it didnít feel like I was wearing foundation which I loved. However, this foundation does not perform better than a $50 foundation, or Revlon colourstay. There are much better foundations on the market.The Pros-Once applied it looked natural, a light to medium coverage-Great for flash photographyThe consThis shade ( Mocha ) oxidized on me. It got much darker(and more red, Iím a yellow undertone) so this was a no. in a few hours it didnít look very natural at all.-Not enough shade ranges for darker skin, if youíre darker than NC50 forget about it.-It is very expensive! Not worth the price!I would not buy this again

If you are concerned about parabens and/or talc, this product has both. It is similar to Chanel Perfection Lumiere in that it shrinks larger pores for a flawless look, only more so. 2 big differences are the frangrance and price. I don't usually like to be so blunt, but I can't help it (maybe the price has something to do with it). The smell is hideous, and the price is over the top. The smell goes away after a while though. I like Chanel's Beige 30 color better, as compared to the 1+ in Sisley. The 1+ is a little lighter, but was the best match. My complexion is light/warm. If I could get past the ingredients and smell, I would highly recommend; if you don't mind shelling out a few extra bucks, this is an awesome look. Alas, I cannot. I will use for special occassion. It should not be a problem with the parabens, it will last. Sorry to be negative, but this product has tremendous potential.

I really quite liked this after my first few tries and I am very fussy. It's a lovely leightweight formula, not drying and very smooth to apply. Melts into the skin but covers well. The first thing i noticed was the scent, very overpowering and i thought at first this would be the dealbreaker but the very strong floral scent actually grew on me after the first to days of wear. The deal breaker was sadly this foundation broke me out badly and i rarely break out with foundations or any cosmetic. I noticed itching on my chin which then quickly developed into tiny, angry red itchy spots. So i can never use this product again now. Another negative of this was i found it to set a little too powdery for my likeing. The lasting power however is very good as well as the oil control which is why i found it suprising that i broke out from this i am guessing the extreme perfume is the culprit.

This is the MOST AMAZING foundation ever known to man. I have been using this for the past few years and although it cost a pretty penny, it is definitely worth every cent. It makes make up stay on better and look very natural. Only thing I will say is the coverage is medium at best so do not expect full coverage.
