I’ve recently signed up for this monthly Sisley subscription. It’s an excellent way to trial run products before purchasing the full size items. It’s a lovely treat every month. And I really look forward to receiving it. I’ve actually purchased some excellent products off the back of this. Some of the items I already own but it’s great having handy travel sizes if I’m going away for the weekend. The subscription service costs either £35 for 6 months or £70 for a year, which considering the quality of the products, is excellent value.
I find myself sliding more and more towards Sisley for cosmetics these days. Where they are predominantly known for their uber-luxe skin care,I feel that their cosmetics are really starting to come to the fore. And the reason, is because they are packed with super quality skin ingredients. So not only are you getting stunning make-up but you are also investing in top notch goodies, which being in my mid forties is a must. I can’t afford to put anything on my face now that isn’t working for me in some capacity. This sunglow powder is their latest offering.
I’d hit pan on their bronzer,that I’ve also reviewed and decided to give this a go for a change.
My first thoughts is how much it looks like Neopolitan Ice-cream. The colours alone set the pulse racing. Three perfect shades for summer.
There is another variation of this in darker bronze shades, which in the past, I would’ve automatically chosen, but, as I no longer sport so much of a tan, I opted for this colour combination instead. The main reason being is that they suggest using the middle powder shade as an all over powder. This is something I’m really looking forward to using. Setting powders as an rule leave me looking a bit cakey however fine they promise they are. Yet, this really does feel light so I hope it lives up to its claims.
The darker bronzer shade is not as dark as the original bronzer,but it is a shade cooler which is probably a more authentic tan colour.And the Pink is really subtle and pretty. It creates a natural flush.
The added bonus is this little Kabuki Brush. It’s pure luxury and I will almost certainly be using it. It’s manufactured by the brand that create Sisley’s range of full size brushes. It’s a welcome addition to my ever expanding brush collection.
The Powder itself is as soft as it comes. Enriched with Shea and Camellia oils it’s bound to feel amazing on the face. At £71 I think people will probably hesitate at first but once they try this out for themselves and feel how gloriously soft it is, they’ll be hard pushed not to want it, even if it’s just for the stunning gold Zebra Print compact.
Edit* I’ve now been wearing this for a couple of days. And the secret of this is to definitely wear the lighter middle shade over the whole face and to then lightly buff in the bronzer around the perimeter of the face. This product blends really well and leaves the complexion with a brilliant seamless finish. Add the blush shade to the apples of the cheek so they give off that slightly caught look. It’s even better to you use the bronze underneath the blush so it gives off a truly tanned look. I’m delighted with this product. All colours are designed to work well together. And my skin feels velvety soft.
