Review of Sisley Oil Free Fluid Foundation by Tess35
I have been using this product on and off for years. I have strayed occassionally and lately to La Mer (liquid & creme- too hyped/ too overpriced), Guerlain and La Prairie (unnatural/too overpriced/acne). But I always come back to this liquid foundation.
Funny but after stints of being disloyal, this foundation never ceases to amaze me everytime I start applying it on my face all over again.
Texture: Light and oil-free. Blends easily and you only need one small light pump to cover face. Spreads thinly but sufficiently. This is ideal for oily/combi skin, so if you prefer a little more moisture, get the Botanical Foundation (transmat) which is also as addictive.
Color: I have this in #2 soft beige and it stays true all day and night long.
Performance: For the first hour after application, it's just like any ordinary foundation. The dough kicks in after that one hour. My pores shy away. I look more vibrant and soft and younger as each hour passes by. I have the look of someone who's born with perfect skin...the most natural I have encountered so far. In fact, sometimes I become so accustomed to that type of skin that I hate my face when it's bare.
Price: Here in Singapore, this is very reasonable (about S$140) compared to La Mer (S$168 for creme fdn) and La Prairie (about S$360 last year). A little more pricey than ordinary liquid foundations but the result is priceless.
Conclusion: THE BEST FOUNDATION EVER CREATED. My issues on big open PORES and redness are swiped out. If you are thinking of buying any high end foundation, I highly recommend that you try Sisley first. Better performance and quality at a fraction of the price.
There are people who say that this fdn is overrated and over-priced and yet they keep on using its sample version over and over again for years...umhhh....
