[Review] Sisley Phyto-Blanc Brightening Cushion Foundation | A Whisk of Blissful Natural Radiance For Your Complexion

March presented us with a little surprise from the beloved French luxury skincare and beauty brand, Sisley Paris. Thanks to the graciousness of Sisley Malaysia team, we received a very special package, to the least of our expectation, Sisley Paris finally came on board the cushion bandwagon - presenting you the brand's very first cushion foundation with skincare benefits, the Sisley Phyto-Blanc Brightening Cushion Foundation, (here for more) extending a more than 15 years of research on the mechanism of melanogenesis in its Photo-Blanc range of skincare expertise to make-up, creating an all-new foundation with lightening and protective properties.

Sisley Paris as a brand is renowned for its phyto-cosmetology philosophy, incorporating this concept to all its creations - using the best plant-based extracts in order to create the best skincare and cosmetics. We are super excited to say the least, to try out this cushion foundation designed for Asian skin! Let's get started, shall we?

For those who are already familiar with Sisley's Phyto-Blanc Skincare range, it is formulated to lighten the complexion, restores radiance to the skin and reduces dark spots. Phyto-Blanc cushion foundation is enriched with active ingredients of Phyto-Blanc Daily Defense Fluid to provide 2-step action: it immediately offers optimal correction of the complexion and creates a perfect skin effect.

It is said its adjustable coverage makes it possible to mask imperfections and blend the skin texture. Active ingredients like Wheat sugar derivatives, Pro-Vitamin B5 and Phytosqualane help maintain skin moisture and hydration. Patented Phyto-Blanc complex and Hibiscus flower extract brighten and even out the complexion and reinforce its radiance. Titanium Dioxide, a mineral screen which protects the skin by reflecting UV rays and Buckwheat seed extract preserves the skin's barrier function and protects it against the harmful effects caused by atmospheric pollutants and fine particles.

Housed in a lovely nice simple white with striking stripes designed box, reveals this cushion compact that is not as slim as some cushions in the market, but simple, elegant and sleek in its presentation. The cushion comes with a sponge, pretty standard. It is soft to the touch. Nonetheless, what is very unique about this cushion foundation is that it has no usual netting for you to press onto to pick up the product, instead, it comes in an airless case, foundation is dispense via a little small hole in the middle (note, peel off the transparent protective seal first) and press the push button to dispense the desired amount. We find this super hygienic, not wasteful and protects the texture use after use. The cushion format is definitely convenient for touch ups, specially designed just for that - reapplication throughout the day when necessary.

Its formula of SPF30 with PA+++ has the functionality of anti-pollution, anti-fine particle and anti-free radical to protect the skin from environmental aggressions. It does have a very slight perfume scent which smells lovely and doesn't really bother us that much, its fresh and delicate texture is supposedly humidity, sweat, rub and heat resistance.

We have to say, it may look rich upon dispensed, but once we applied onto the skin (with sponge in tapping motion, always with cushion), it immediately even out our complexion. We believe it has to do with its golden and pink Colour Correct Pearls that add light and radiance while providing double correction: Optical correction (the pearls restore the skin's natural glow by smoothing away imperfections) and Colour correction (the pearls neutralise colour irregularities by illuminating fair complexion, warming grey complexions and guaranteeing a fresh, radiant, glowing porcelain complexions).

Fair to say, if you have a good complexion to start with, we believe you will look amazing. For us, it did all the above beautifully, imparting a natural luminosity on our skin, but didn't exactly measure up in covering our stubborn pigmentations and some dark spots completely. We do need concealer. Having said that, we absolutely love its lightweight texture, feels airy on our skin and extremely comfortable, almost feel like not wearing any foundation at all yet we look refreshed and awakened *_^ There are 3 shades to choose from - White opal, White Pearl and Light Rose. The shade we have is No.2 White Pearl.

In today's modern busy world, we do look into convenience and best of all, make-up that comes with skincare ingredients to enhance our skin over time. It does come with a price though. This cushion foundation is retailed for MYR460 (14g) and refill pack at MYR360. More on this cushion here.

Thanks again Sisley Paris for the huge love! We believe we will continue to enjoy this foundation as long as it last. Most definitely worth a look into if you have deep pocket and appreciate its skincare quality. Here to learn more about the brand. If you love Instagram, you could explore further here.

Till our next beauty discovery, have a luminously gorgeous new week ahead, lovelies *_^

With love,
