Our New Favourite Foundation For Every Skin Type & Tone

If you’re looking for a fuller coverage foundation with plenty of skincare benefits, Sisley’s new Phyto-Teint Perfection should be on your radar. With a light-as-air yet buildable texture, it hides uneven tone, breakouts and dark circles, while allowing skin to breathe through its luminous matte finish. Offered in no fewer than 29 shades, it’s also one of the most inclusive options out there. Here’s why we rate it – and how you can claim a free sample.

Created in partnership with SISLEY

The Hype

Let’s start with the buildable coverage that’s so smooth and velvety. You’ll never find cakiness is an issue, which is rare for a fuller coverage foundation. Described by fans as a ‘blur filter in a bottle’, it has a natural finish that’s hard to rival, while Sisley’s in-built Ideal Skin Complex makes it a great pick for every skin type. 

This complex has been created by a Sisley team with over 40 years of experience in skin physiology and cosmetology – you can be sure they know exactly what does and doesn’t work to yield results. Inside Phyto-Teint Perfection, the complex works to moisturise, smooth and illuminate skin with every wear – it’s one of the few foundations out there that you’ll find looks better on your skin as the day continues. 

Ingredients within the complex include cucumber extract and glyco-complex, which immediately bolster your skin’s hydration levels, while green lentil extracts smooth the texture and enhance the tone of your skin. Finally, buckwheat seed and peach blossom extract help to deliver antioxidants into your skin, strengthening and brightening it simultaneously, which is why, despite the mattifying effects, you still get a lasting glow.

The Shades

With 29 shades available, there is one for every skin and undertone, including cool, neutral and warm, so you can get a perfect match.

To claim your free sample and to ensure you get the correct shade, don’t miss Sisley’s clever shade match tool which works in seconds to help you identify your correct tone. There are 3,000 samples available, so it’s worth doing this process quickly.

If you miss out, an easy way to discover your undertone is by looking at the veins in your wrist. If they are blue/purple, your undertone is cool;, if they are green and yellow, your undertones are warm. Those who find the veins are neither or in between the two are considered neutral. 

The Tools & Techniques

Just a pump or two will be enough to cover your entire face. We recommend using a brush with this foundation for the most seamless blend, working it in circular motions into your skin, starting at the centre of your face, then working outwards. Layering it up lightly means the areas where you end up needing more coverage – like the nose and under eyes – get a smooth, even blend every time.

The Reasons Sapna & Becky Love It

“I’ve never received as many compliments on my skin as when I’ve worn this foundation. A big part of that is down to the seamless coverage it offers: it leaves no dark or red patch visible, but it never feels heavy or suffocating on the skin. The luminosity it gives is impressive too, while the texture is velvety and smooth, making it easy to work with and buff out for a flawless finish. And little goes a long way, so you get your money’s worth.” – Rebecca Hull, Beauty Director

“I rarely use matte foundations, but this one has me converted. It stays put, but never looks cakey. It really has boosted the appearance and tone of my skin the more I wear it. It never makes me feel as if I’m wearing too much, yet it covers everything I need it to. I love how impressive the shade range is too.” – Sapna Rao, LuxeGen Junior Editor & SL Junior Fashion & Beauty Editor
