Luminous Silk Foundation is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 147.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Luminous silk foundation I absolutely love this foundation. I get more compliments on my makeup than I ever have. I have dry skin and this foundation makes your skin look supple and glowing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Love Love Very beautiful foundations that is light as a feather. Makes my skin look beautiful without looking like I'm wearing foundation. It was recommended to me by my coworker and I would highly recommend to anyone. This is not suitable for "cover up" just FYI, but perfect for luminosity.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magical fantasy Silk title is self suggestive for the product and at the same time fails to cover all the charisma of the foundation

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The BEST! Nothing compares I have been using this for 3-4 years and it's perfect in every way. Nothing compares to it. Every time I try a different product, I instantly regret it. Why bother when this is perfect. It may seem pricey but it lasts a long time. I only use a pump for light coverage but you can use more to l build more coverage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Foundation I bought this foundation about three weeks ago and have used it several times since and I must say, I absolutely adore this foundation. I have oily combination acne prone skin with hyperpigmentation left behind from previous breakouts and 1) this foundation did not break me out, and 2) it decently covered my hyperpigmentation. With that being said I wouldn't necessarily say it completely covered all the acne scars to the point of perfect skin, but that's not what I was looking for in this foundation, if it did it would lose its very natural look upon application, I simply dabbed a tiny bit of concealer on a couple of darker spots. This foundation gives an exceptional amount of coverage while still feeling weightless, it really is the lightest liquid foundation I've ever worn, and when it's on it really looks like my natural skin just ten times better. If you have an oily t-zone like me you definitely need to set this foundation with a really good setting powder, nothing too matte that's going to remove the luminosity of this foundation though. I've tried a couple of powders with the luminous silk and I found my favorite is the Nars Light Reflecting Setting Powder, I just set it and can literally go a whole 8 hour day without blotting or reapplying, plus these two work so well together when photographed as well. The luminosity still shines through and the Luminous Silk really keeps it high pigmentation all day long, it's an exception foundation so if you're on the fence definitely go for it. For color reference i'm C2 in Mac Studio Fix and purchased 4 light, golden in the Luminous Silk. Perfect color match for those of you with that yellow undertone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best foundation I've used I bought this 2 months ago, it's my favorite foundation, it looks so natural on my face, and as long as you wear, the more natural you get.
