♡ Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation

July 19, 2013

Giorgio Armani's Luminous Silk Foundation has been receiving a lot of attention recently from the beauty community, and after owning and loving a bottle of the stuff for just over two months I can definitely see why. It has become the foundation I reach for almost everyday, so with nothing but good things to say, sit tight and prepare for what I can only describe as an essay of praise!

First off, the Luminous Silk Foundation is available in a wide range of shades and for once I actually managed to find one pale enough (shade 2) to match my skin tone perfectly, hallelujah! Colour match a success, I was willing the foundation itself to be great, and it most definitely did not let me down. The coverage is very buildable, from sheer to medium without ever looking 'cakey'. The finish being somewhere inbelween matte and dewy, it is something I can only describe as 'skin-like' - extremely natural and hardly detectable, even when faced with a magnifying mirror and direct sunlight. And best of all, it pretty much stays looking perfect all day. Even in the recent heatwave this foundation hasn't let me down. With a bit of help from a setting spray and the occasional touch up of powder, this stuff stays in place and remains looking pretty natural too. It also doesn't contain  SPF which I personally find a bonus as it means it's suitable for photography yet when SPF is needed you can just add some sunscreen underneath. Oh, and let me just throw in that it has a pump dispenser, which if you've ever fallen for a foundation without a pump or squeezy tube before, you'll know just how enjoyable it is to have the luxury of a mess free pump!

So rant over, I think it's safe to say that this is without a doubt, the best foundation 
I have tried so far (and I do not say that lightly!). Available for £34.50 a bottle it's not the most affordable foundation, but for something you put on your face everyday, it's definitely worth every penny.

  12. I've seen so many people use this foundation but this is the first review I've read. I'm completely sold!

    I kind of prefer a foundation without SPF because they create a slightly ghostly appearance and they take longer to blend in.
