I have a problem. I’ve always wanted to be French. I own a beret, j’adore pain au chocolat and I long for my morning commute to consist of a ramble through the Parisian streets on a bicycle carrying fresh bread. Yes, you could say I’ve thought about it quite a lot.
The thing is I’m not French; I’m English – quite possibly the polar opposite to elegant chic. Sigh.
So I live out my double life through beauty. Hence me being rather excited about the launch of high-technology foundation, Sisley Phyto-Teint Eclat this Sunday. Its bevy of beautifying ingredients include volatile silicones which give it a gorgeously lightweight texture; “silicone”- coated pigments that, thanks to their spherical nature, glide over the skin with ease and then voila: vanish, leaving a matte, satin smooth film that hides irregularities and imperfections; gardenia, linden and mallow extracts, all of which have been used for their softening and emollient properties. In other words it’s sheer heaven in a bottle.
Its radiant, flawless and non-greasy formula lets me channel my inner fabulous French self. So slink on down to your closest DJs (in your black Chanel-esque sunnies of course dahling) and be treated to a complimentary foundation colour matching service.
