Review by frucht_tasche
This is a divine foundation. I have already many foundations (chantecaille, BB, SM, shu, chanel, cle de peau, etc.), but after trying some samples of this one, I'm hooked. It's lightweight, and goes on very smooth (even without primer) without any sticky feeling. It covers minor imperfections very well, feels truly weightless on skin, and provides a very natural luminouos semi matt finish (not flat or chalky at all like many oil free fdtns). Although it's oil free, it does not sit on fine lines/ accentuate flakes (in fact it hide flakes better than cream fdtns) and does not dry out my already dry-ish skin. It lasts long, too. I don't think I can wear this fdt in colder months, but in spring/ summer, it's great. As other reviewers said, the shade selection is not great. If you're very fair PPP, you will not be able to find a match because the lightest color (01) is already around NC 20-25. Darker shades looked quite orange. If you have normal to slightly dry or oily skin and like natural finish & are lucky to find a color match, you'll love this one! My gripe is its packaging. You cannot control the amount you need from the pump, so there's some wastage. & for this price, the bottle could have been prettier. I will buy again next spring/ summer. ***Update Jul 2007*** I still think it's a very good foundation, but I found a better one: by Terry Teint plumping fluid foundation. It's more moisturizing than sisley, but still light and not oily/greasy at all. If you like the texture of sisley oilfree fdt but want to try something which is more moisturizing, it'll be a great product. & By Terry shade selection is fantastic (very sophisticated) for lighter skintones.
