I love this compact foundation!! However, I never use the sponge that goes with it - I hate sponges...I use a kabuki brush instead and it just covers enough not to feel too much or too little. I easily break out, but this I have used so much and never get any breakouts when wearing it. It is almost as if it helps my skin not to break out?! I have a classic combination skin that can get a bit surface dry and flaky in the winter time which makes all foundations a challenge. Either they are too oily or too dry. But this one just melts into my skin. I do get a bit shiny on the forehead in the afternoon after a whole day in front of the computer, but it is not more than what looks natural. I don't like to look too dry as if my skin was made of velvet...I consider that a caky look. But hey, we have all different opinions on what our skin should look like. :-)

Since I am 42 years old I have to use products that don't end up in my eye creases and this one definitely doesn't. This Sisley Phyto teint compact foundation is my HG.

I have tried all brands, all qualities all price ranges but this one is my favourite. I do have a Lancome as well that works totally ok, but the Sisley is the favourite. My second favourite is actually from Roche Posay: Toleriane teint - compact foundation.

This powder was recommended to me by a make up professional. Pricewise, it's really expensive! I think this is the most expensive make up item I have at the moment (I paid around 85€ for it). However, I use it almost everyday for the past 3 months and there's still a lot left.

The package is nice and you don't necessarily need to use an extra brush. However, I do feel like my face looks a bit "orange" in certain lights. It has a good coverage but it's also really tricky since it comes out easily (never put a white shirt AFTER applying this powder). It doesn't last all day - maybe a couple of hours -.

I'm not sure if I would buy it again as it is indeed good but at the same time really expensive for the amount of cons.

Pros: The product is good, no break out, good coverage without cakey look. It seems to stay on my face for the whole day.

Cons: Expensive. Oily and melt on the T-zone area after half a day(can be fixed by oil blotting paper). Powder will be left on your husband/boyfriend shirt if you bump your face into their body :)

This is an interesting one. I use it as a powder over liquid foundation and it works perfectly for this and extends wear. Packaging is interesting, deep amber red plastic case in a black velvet case that matches nothing else in the range.

I thought sisley was a good brand for make up but i found out the hard truth, it's not. There are more cheaper products that would do a lot better than what they promised. I got really bad experience with sisley products. For make up products I go for Dior and YSL.

This product has been in my drawer for almost a year, never used because I didn't get the result I wanted, but then when I started tinted moisturizer and put this over it I just got a very nice result. Glowing and radiant look. I'm glad it's not totally wasted because it's really an expensive compact powder. But will definitely not repurchase it again because there are a lot cheaper products out there that can deliver better results.

I was DEVASTED when my HG of all time was discontinued -- CD Fluide [honestly, I've never found something so perfect to this day].

Anyway, went on a long and arduous hunt -- one of my main problems is that every foundation now has chemical sunscreens, which I seem to be very sensitive to. Even the new CD formulations. Sisley was the only foundation I found that did not have this. Goodness knows what I'll do if they decide to add sunscreen to it!

This stuff is pretty good. Colour selection is a bad limited [although I've heard they're introducing new colours] and I found that my colour [second lightest] has a slight orange tinge to it, which I really do not like.

However, the coverage of this product is relatively good, and it doesn't break me out or anything like that. Which is what I wanted.

The packaging is also good [Ilove a good pump] but each pump does deliver too much product I feel [it's not a very sensitive pump]. The product is also really expensive, compared to other foundations. However, that's o.k. becasue I was at my wits end trying to find something that would work for me.

Sisley, I've found are pretty good with samples -- I would definitely try it out first, just because of the costs!

I don't know if the actual compact I bought was old, but it made my face so red and irritated and itchy, and although I do have sensitive skin, it usually doesn't have quite THAT bad of a reaction!!! I do happen to LOVE the sisley oil-free foundation, so I wouldn't buy this one ever ever again. It is very hard to get product, and can look heavy because it is difficult to blend it. there is just much better product out there to spend that much money on something that is not that great. The only thing I like is the package, I love the red case with the crown!

This is a compact not-quite-a-cream, not-quite-a-powder foundation. I agree with the reviewer below that is is very solid, so it is hard to pick up the fdtn, and it can be difficult to blend. However, once it is applied, it gives a flawless, radiant finish. It looks very natural. But it does feel a bit heavy on my skin, even though it doesn't look heavy at all.

It comes in a deep-red case that's very pretty but a bit difficult to open.

Limited shades available (especially in the lighter end), but shade #2 soft beige suits me perfectly.

I will not repurchase because this is not HG for me, and I am always trying new products!

EDIT: this turns orange by mid-day, and it does not wear off nicely.
