Sisley Paris Toffee (7) Phyto-Ombre Eclat Eye Shadow ($47.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a medium-dark, red-toned brown with warm undertones and a soft, satin finish. Makeup Geek Brown Sugar (P, $5.99) is darker, less red-toned. Anastasia Truffle (LE) is less warm-toned. Inglot #122R Bottom (P, $6.00) is darker, less shimmery. MAC Exposed (LE, $15.00) is more muted, lighter. Guerlain Les Fauves #2 (LE) is warmer. See comparison swatches.

The Phyto-Ombre Eclat formula is supposed to wear all-day long and have a great texture with blendable, buildable color. The brand also says that based on the “naturally-derived extracts (green tea, white lily, and camellia)” that the formula also “protects and softens the delicate epidermis of the eyelids.” I can’t attest to any long-term effects of wearing Sisley’s formula, but as an eyeshadow, it is exceptional. It is really everything you’d want in an eyeshadow: richly pigmented, beautifully blendable, incredibly finely-milled but never powdery, and long-wearing. It very nearly blends itself, but it doesn’t sheer out–it adheres well to the bare skin with even, smooth color, and the edges soften almost as you apply the color. When I tested it, the color wore well for nine hours with very, very minimal fading. Whether it’s worth it is going to depend on the individual, as it’s a luxury product with a corresponding price point, but at least it performs at a high level.

That’s one expensive eyeshadow! Here in belgium it’s 30 euros, which is cheaper but still scandalous!

Chanel are 26 euro. Sisley is definitely one of the most expensive easily available brand in Europe.

The reviews of Sisley single are better though (anyway on French review sites). Apparently the black from sisley is amazing.

They seem more comparable at 26 euros vs. 30 euros – here it is $29.50 vs. $47! This was my first Sisley eyeshadow, and I don’t know whether to be happy or sad it was so good, LOL!

This seems to be a lovely eyeshadow… but 47 $ for one single eyeshadow?!? I knew Sisley was expensive, but thatยดs just ridiculous

Yeah, it is pricey! I think for the right color that really makes you happy or is one you’d use all the time, it might be worth it!

This is the philosophy I need to live by here in NZ ๐Ÿ™‚ One does end up with a rather modest collection, but it’s a collection of stuff you absolutely love, usually!

This particular shadow is way too warm for me, but like the word ‘mango’, the word ‘toffee’ makes me want to own it ๐Ÿ˜›

products like this really mystify me… I mean… $47 for one eyeshadow. one shade. not a palette of colours to use together, just one single tiny eyeshadow. I get that it’s a luxury item but that is just extortionate. especially when its a common neutral tone shadow.

Sometimes a shade that might be more “boring” or less unique, but really well done, is something one can use often, which may make it a better buy in the long run than a color that’s super unique but you’d wear once a year! It depends on what you’re looking for, and it’s a luxury brand for sure!

Yeah, I could go for this. I vastly prefer red toned browns on my skin to yellow or orange. I wonder how similar this is to NARS New York. This might be warmer, but I still like it.

NARS New York is matte, and redder, IMO. This looks like it may be closer to Fez or Lola Lola (on my screen, it look like it falls right in between).

I have to say that for me personally, it isn’t worth the price point, but I immensely appreciate when a luxury product actually performs like one. It’s the kind of thing that would still make me consider the brand later on, perhaps for a color that I would use often enough to justify that hefty price tag.

I’m with you, Carrie! It would have to be just the right shade – something either really unique or that I would use often!

Very much NOT my colour but I have to say that at that price, I’d have expected a somewhat better applicator! (I guess that is always my complaint!). Christine, how would you say the pigmentation, blendability and just overall quality compare to the Hourglass shadows (I know you have or used to have the Gypsy duo)?

I’ve never found an applicator included in one of these compacts that I’ve REALLY liked or would voluntarily used. I would say that Hourglass eyeshadows have a denser texture… Sisley somehow manages to be less dense but still really, really smooth and not powdery. In terms of quality, they’re neck and neck – Hourglass just feels a little denser. I don’t think you’d notice the difference in texture when applying to the lid, though.

Re applicators – I know, I know. I’m of 2 minds – is it better to leave them out entirely or put in a crappy one so that if you’re stuck somewhere, at least you can use those to apply/reapply. I remember some youtube tags about what you’d do if the makeup you’d packed got lost in transit and you had some limited amount of money to get stuff to see you through your trip (maybe it was $25). One youtuber said that she’d buy XYZ shadow and use the sponge tipped applicator that came with it, saving herself some of that precious budget by not having to buy Q-tips (weird the stuff that stays with us makeup obsessed; I couldn’t start a fire in the woods or deal with a venomous snake bite but in a makeup emergency, I’ve got ideas!). I guess what sticks in my mind, though, is the reasonably great brushes BM/BE put in their 8-pan Ready eye shadows (granted, there was more room to fit an okay-ish double sided brush).

I was impressed by the quality! Now, if only there was a little more product (more generous, you know, for the price) or a palette option, lol!

Wow, that is a really high price point – but at least the quality is there! I hate to see expensive brands with low quality.

I’ve never even heard of this brand… I’m glad the product is amazing for that price, ’cause the packaging looks like a garage door opener.

ฤฐ truly adore Sisley eyeshadows, they definately live up to the company’s claims & worth every penny in my opinion/experience!
Btw you need to try their Hydrating Long Lasting lipsticks as well as the Phyto Lip Star glosses, Christine, ฤฐ believe you’ll love them!

I purchased Sisley shadow in Stardust, an incredible dirty pewter kind of shade, a couple of years ago and it is certainly one of the best shadows I have in my collection. I generally try not to visit my counter too often because I don’t want to start liking their other products- I’d have to stop eating. Still, for that extra-special item, the quality (in their eye shadows at least) is there.

Ugh, that was the one I was eyeing. Don’t tell me it’s a pewter. I was hoping the stock photos were horribly wrong, LOL!

If I were the type who pretty much wore the same eyeshadow look nearly every day, I could see myself investing in a handful of shades at this pricepoint, especially if they were workhorse shades. However, I’m the type who likes to experiment with different shades/combinations, and never go more than a week in the same color range, so I would get bored quite quickly, LOL! Besides, with these luxury branda, I tend to find the available spectrum quite small & limited, which is why I prefer to go with brands such as NARS, UD, MUFE, etc… I may not wear alot of “color” on a daily basis, but I find the subtle differences amongst my neutrals to be very apparent. Besides, the aforementioned brands have shades similar enough to not be able to justify this particular shadow, but if something spectacularly unique became available, I’d be swayed to at least consider it.

Kate mentioned Stardust, which is the one that struck me when I was looking online, as being a more unique shade… and it’s pewter. Weakness.

There is no way in the planet I will ever pay that much money for one single eyeshadow, even if I got a lot of use out of it, but it is a really pretty colour.

There are huge differences in cost of makeup in Europe. $47 is about what I payed for a single shadow from Dior, I think it was last year.
Makeup is really quite expensive here in Sweden ๐Ÿ™
It’s a lovely shade of brown, this. Maybe I should be glad Sisley aren’t available in stores here anymore.

I adore Sisley eyeshadows, I had picked up Toffee and Dune for my wedding makeup. Bought in 2007 and still in perfect condition.
Since then I invested in some more, but Toffee is still my most beloved brown, for all the reasons you described. I’d love to hear more about Sisley.
