I have to show you the case. I don't usually dwell on cases, particularly when they are the same as every other like case in a brand (e.g., all eye shadow quad compacts). In this case, the look is noteworthy. Is it classy, or what?
Sisley Phyto-Blush Éclat is "radiance revealed, in a single sweep. Its high-tech texture reveals and beautifies the complexion, while leaving the skin soft and comfortable.Ultra-fine, unctuous and silky, for a light, astonishing translucent and long-lasting makeup result."
Sisley's wonderful blushes adapt to all skin tones and looks, from the most natural to the most sophisticated. I'm living proof. I tried all the new shades, and there wasn't a single one I couldn't wear! That's impressive. Of course, it made for a terrible decision-making process. Would I purchase one, two, or even more?
I got rational and choose one to start: Pinky Rose (#4). I took swatch photos in full sunlight, applying the blush heavily at the top of my arm with a sponge-tipped applicator and fairly heavily below with a brush.
This is a gorgeous blush. Yes, it's a bit pricey. Sisley color usually is. You always get some nice skin-care ingredients with Sisley color, so that's how I justify it. Here are the key active ingredients in Phyto-Blush Éclat.
- Woodmallow extract: moisturizes and softens
- Linden extract: softens, soothes
- Corn: nourishes, increases hydration
- Gardenia extract: softens, moisturizes
- Ginkgo biloba extract: boosts surface microcirculation, fights free radicals
- Rosehip extract: tones
I purchased my Sisley Phyto-Blush Éclat at Neiman Marcus. You can find it at any Sisley counter.
Update: I forgot I had this photo, taken in terrible store lighting, of the new blush display. Ta da!
