Luminous Silk Foundation is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 165.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Diffuses the look of my wrinkles I have been using the Luminous Silk Foundation for about a year and have found that after I smooth it on, it does a great job of hiding the darker skin under my eyes and it seems to diffuse the look of my crow's feet and other small wrinkles. Love this product...l.please don't ever change the formula! I am 72 years old and love how this feels on my skin and how it improves my complexion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So glad I tried while at Heathrow I would never have purchased this unless I had seen for myself what wonderful color matching and wear it provides. Really truly feels like nothing is on, looks beautifully natural and wears gracefully over the day. I don't like wearing primer, and while Luminous Silk would definitely benefit from primer (wear time is really only about 8 hours without it, and I work 10 hour days), as it wears off you can't even tell it's going anywhere, if that makes sense. There's no patchiness, no flakes, no breaking or pooling. I don't spend a lot of money on makeup, but I'll always have Luminous Silk from now on. I will add that for the first 20 minutes of wear I was dubious about the color match, but it oxidized into being just right for me. If you have the opportunity, let an Armani MUA match you, then leave the store and make up your mind later. You won't regret allowing yourself the extra time to make certain the color is right.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keep trying other foundations and none come close. I like the way it smoothes my face. Stays on all day. Touches up easily if I need it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I have tried many foundations. This is my favourite, by far. Skin looks flawless.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding application and finish- Velvety Smooth Im pretty new to makeup and was suggested this foundation. It is beyond amazing! It applies so easily, sets really well and gives my skin a flaweless finish. I used this in combination with the UV maestro primer (before)+ silk UV compact (after), for a perfect matte finish. Now I know why they say the right products do all the work for you-- no one could tell I was new to makeup, my skin looked radiant and photoshopped. Thank you GA for the BEST foundation, compact and primer!!!! Im in love. (used the 4.5 luminous silk and 3.5 silk UV compact)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very light but covers well My sister uses this and I borrowed some a few years ago while on vacation. I haven't gone back to my old brand. It's a little pricey, but I love the way it feels.

Which is the best primer to use with this foundation? 

Asked by: Makeupfiend
Thank you for your question. The best primer to use with Luminous Silk Foundation depends on your skin. Use Maestro UV Makeup Primer if you would like to protect from sun and environment. Use Fluid Master Primer if you have textured skin or large pores. Use Light Master Primer if you have dull skin.
