Product Review: Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation

Hi Beauties,

I wanted to put up a quick review on this foundation I recently purchased. As you can tell by the title of this post, I will be talking about the Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation . I use the shade 7.5 and for reference, I am NC42 in MAC.

This foundation claims: “Capture the glow of perfect skin with this award-winning foundation. Luminous Silk foundation features an exclusive Micro-fil technology. So weightless, it redefines foundation. Its hydrating fluid glides on seamlessly with a silky texture and all-day, buildable coverage. For all skin types.”

I honestly agree with all of these claims. Its a beautiful foundation, goes on very light but has very good coverage. I only use one layer and I feel like its enough to cover problem areas. I apply the foundation with a Sephora Stippling Brush after applying a mattifying primer. It looks gorgeous on the skin, doesn’t cake and gives you a healthy glow not to be confused with looking greasy. I have a very oily T-Zone and I usually stay away from anything that contains the word “Luminous” for fear that I would look too greasy but this foundation makes you look dewy and healthy. If you like to look fresh and matte all day, this isn’t the foundation for you.  I would say that with a setting powder, this foundation can last about 8 hours before it starts to get oily. This could also be because its summer and humid out right now but we will know once cool fall weather comes around how it performs. I would suggest a blot powder on hand if you need it to last longer.

I purchased this foundation for going out at night and special occasions mainly because its very expensive to use every day (for me) and it doesn’t contain SPF (great for flash photography). See photos below on how it looks after applied and set with loose powder. These are photos taken with flash and no filters or skin altering apps  🙂

    Your skin looks amazing with this foundation! Would you say 7.5 is a close match to NC42? I bought the foundation and I’m also an NC42 – still using the tester since I’m scared to use the bottle and then not be able to return it!

    Had a look at those and your shade matches are the same as me – makes life much easier! My HG for a year now as been EL DW how ever, have you ever found that 4W1 has come across as ashy/light around certain areas? Armani is the perfect shade now, I’ve used it for a few days and I love it. I’ve noticed it’s a better match than 4W1
