What makes an successful beauty brand? Is it the use of technology, treatments, or pure ingredients? France’s Sisley-Paris is a makeup and skincare company that focuses on all three. Since the ’70s Sisley-Paris has worked to create innovative, prestigious beauty products.

We had the opportunity to discover the brand’s creative and development processes, its impact on the beauty industry, and how the small, family-owned business evolved into an internationally recognized company.

Neiman Marcus: What makes the Sisley-Paris brand unique?

Sisley Paris: We believe the fact that the company is family created and owned is what truly makes it stand out. The main focus is always centered on the concept of phyto-cosmetology—the use of the highest quality plant-based ingredients and essential oils to create products that deliver visible results.

NM: Can you tell us about the history of the brand?

SP: For three generations, the d’Ornano family has created and led businesses in the high-end cosmetics sector. Hubert d’Ornano launched Sisley in 1976 relying on technological advancements to use the highest quality active ingredients available to create the best cosmetics. One of the unique and fascinating things about Sisley is that the Sisley Laboratories are given the luxury of time to identify the key ingredients and technology for our products.

NM: How has Sisley-Paris evolved over the years?

SP: Sisley is as timeless as its products make you look! While Sisley has a global presence in over 90 countries, it always stays true to its heritage. It has moved forward in terms of research and development, product innovation, sourcing new key ingredients, and latest technology on the market. Sisley has never been one to follow trends—new products are developed and launched based on white-space opportunity versus the latest short-term fad.

NM: In your opinion, how has Sisley-Paris impacted the beauty industry as a whole?

SP: Sisley-Paris is an innovator in ingredients, products, and in the instant and long-term results seen with use of the products. For example, plant-based ingredients and essential oils were not the norm when Sisley launched 40 years ago, and now it is considered chic to mention the very basis of the Sisley brand! Sisley was revolutionary with introducing Sisleÿa L’Integral Anti-Age Cream—no such concept even existed in the ’90s when the product was first launched. You know you can look toward Sisley for innovation and what will be the next important long-term beauty priority.

NM: Name one Sisley-Paris product you couldn’t live without.

SP: We actually just asked our followers on social media that same question, and the top picks were from our Black Rose Skincare Collection: the Black Rose Cream Mask and the Black Rose Precious Face Oil. The use of the unique Black Rose Extract to show instant plumping and a more radiant youthful look made these products instant successes when they launched and still a favorite years later!

NM: What Sisley-Paris essential would make a luxurious holiday gift for women on-the-go?

SP: Who doesn’t want to look glamorous and party-ready for the holiday season?
Sisley makeup has skincare ingredients infused within it so you not only look beautiful but also feel beautiful while taking care of your skin. The Phyto-Eye Twist and Phyto-Lip Twist collections come in a fun Zebra print and a candy-shop array of colors to suit every look you can dream up. The multipurpose pencils are easy to apply and have incredible holding power to take you late into the evening!

NM: What Sisley-Paris product would make a luxurious gift for women who deserve pampering?

SP: The Supremÿa Collection is a decadent treat—the rich, antiaging nighttime collection not only looks and feels luxurious but also reveals a rested, youthful, and plumped complexion. The Supremÿa Baume is encased in a faceted-glass jar that sparkles; the cream melts into the skin to help protect, nourish, and firm the skin. Supremÿa Eyes at Night smooths around the entire eye to refresh and diminish dark circles and puffiness. The collection also includes a lotion.

In addition, we asked the specialists to elaborate on their daily beauty routines.
