'Luminous Silk' Foundation


Sarah Nikole L.'s Review Image

This foundation photographs beautifully,and has a light-medium buildable coverage.It has a thin,watery texture but is pretty pigmented.
It doesn't cover red blemishes quite well,but that's what concealer is for.
I really like this foundation,however it breaks me out..I have quite sensitive skin,so i will save this for special occasions.I will attach a photo of me wearing this foundation.


- 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.

Armani Luminous Silk Foundation

I have been using Armani Luminous Silk Foundation for about 8 or so years. I love this foundation and many foundations cause my skin to break out but not this one. The only thing I would like is this foundation in 04 with more pink to match my skin tone. It does blend beautifully with a blender sponge or brushes.


I have SUPER dry skin and this foundation is amazing! It's moisturizing and lasts a long time in my opinion. You have to set it after applying. I put on a BB cream beforehand and it mixes perfectly with it.

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.
