Giorgio Armani

'Luminous Silk' Foundation

Reviews

- Expensive - Light Coverage - Smells good -Flawless finish - Need to set it - Not a long lasting foundation Summary: Use it everyday, I love the fact that we cannot see that you are wearing a foundation with this one. It gives you a natural effect that I didn't see with a lot of foundation. But, because of this effect this light foundation will not last you all day long, you need to do some touch up during the day.

I did not really like it. it was nice through but there are other foundations that i love more. I did not find it to be long lasting. it gave me liminous affect but it would be flaky sometimes.

Gorgeous, Glowing, and Non-Comedogenic

I was recommended to try this foundation out and I'm glad I did! The foundation is light but buildable. It's non-comedogenic so it won't clog your pores and I think it's been doing great with my skin. I have oily, combo, acne-prone skin and I haven't broken out yet. I wear a 4.5 and it matches my skin perfectly! I'm definitely going to be trying out more products from Armani's Beauty Line.

My Perfect Match

Out of all the foundations I’ve tried over the many years of wearing makeup, I have finally found my perfect match! I have fair skin with a warmer undertone and the Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation in shade #04 fits me perfectly. I have been using this foundation for about a year and had just recently purchased my second bottle, which is one of the first things I love about this product; a little goes a long way! Just one or two pumps of this product during each application provides me with a full, flawless coverage giving me a silky smooth and dewy look that lasts, even with my combination skin type. When I want a slightly more matte look, I apply my favorite Laura Mercier Loose Setting Powder which also helps to hold the foundation in place for long periods of time. The Luminous Silk also works great with a BeautyBlender sponge which allows for quick and easy application. Lastly and most importantly, because I tend to have sensitive skin, I am happy to say that this foundation does not irritate my skin at all. Overall, amazing foundation!

Irritated my skin unfortunately

Loved Maestro so I thought I'd give this a whirl. I have dry skin so for winter I wanted a foundation to give me a dewy look. Something about the formula and silicones really didn't do well for my skin. Loved the color match but hated the way my skin felt.

Maestro Much Better

I have Armani's Maestro and so I thought I'd try something different from the line. Color match was right on but application was difficult. Applied over my serum this foundation was difficult to spread with my fingers even though I worked in sections. The coverage is fairly decent but I didn't like having to set it with powder unlike my Maestro which dries to a powder finish. Will I re-purchase? Nope.

Feels like silk...

This foundation is great! I got to play with it yesterday in a product training and instantly fell in love. No, I wouldn't recommend this product for someone with oily skin, or at least not without a mattifying primer applied underneath. All in all a great product.

One of the best foundations I have tried, settles nicely and smells good. If you want more coverage you can just apply more, gives you a glowing and fresh finish. A bottle lasted for more than a year, worth it.

Fantastic range of colours!!

I've never found a more perfect colour for my skin, and this foundation is so beautiful on the skin! It is very expensive, so I recommend trying it first to see how it reacts with you. Also, the coverage is what I classify as sheer- medium, but that might be different to what you might call it, so just test it first. It's very pricey, and purely for that reason I wouldn't purchase it again... just because I think there are cheaper alternatives that can give a very similar effect. Overall, this foundation is very beautiful and I would suggest it for people with cash to splash & who enjoy hydrating foundations that give a natural and dewey finish.

It has that dewy finish, very light, makes you skin looks polished. However, if you have an oily skin, I wouldn't recommend this simply because it will make you look shiny.
