Luminous Silk Foundation is rated 4.7125 out of 5 by 80.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Luminous skin perfector! This is the most amazing foundation I have ever tried. I have very sensitive skin and other foundations irritate my rosacea, but this makeup makes my skin look absolutely perfect. The color is even and glowing, it feels light and airy, and just makes it look like I have perfect skin. Some other great features of this foundation are that it covers so well I do not need to use concealer, it lasts all day without the need for touch ups, and even in hot and humid weather, it will not melt or streak. I get the best results when I apply it with the Giorgio Armani foundation brush. Powder to set the makeup is optional. I will never go back to using anything else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Luminous Foundation Really nice and long lasting without a heavy feel. The only problem I had with this foundation in the past was the shades choices. However, now Armani has come out with new colors, colors for us with yellow undertones in our skin. In the past the only shade that was close to my skin tone was the no. 8 which left a grey tint to my skin. But now with the new 7.5 it's a perfect match! If you have never worn this foundation go to a store to get match the colors are not true to detail on line. I thought I was a 8 or 8.5 but I am a 7.5. I believe that I have finally found a foundation that matches my skin! Thank you so very much! Also, I really love the new packaging the bottles are beautiful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfection. This is absolutely THE best liquid foundation I have ever used. I have tried so many brands/formulas, and have always been disappointed- until I tried this. It really is perfect for my needs- the color match is perfect for my skin tone; the finish is soft, luminous, and completely natural-looking (actually, it's the only one I've used that doesn't look obvious); the coverage is completely and easily adjustable. But the best feature is the texture- it is so lightweight, it feels like I'm not wearing it at all- and yet, the coverage is still perfect, and it's long-wearing. Works very well with the Luminous Silk powder foundation. Just perfect!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST FOUNDATION!!!!!!! I hadnt tried a liquid foundation in over 8 years-being a big mineral makeup wearer.However I started not liking how I looked in photographs.After reading some stellar reviews on this foundation I thought I am going to give it a try.i am so glad I did-it is a superb foundation and gives great coverage but yet I dont feel anything on my face and that was my biggest complaint years ago about liquid foundation.The color is spot on and there is no line of demarkation-just great luminous coverage-your face looks like you were born with perfect skin!!This was my 1st Armani product but it wont be my last!!!!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't bother with any other foundation This is THE foundation to use for that perfect glow! Smooth and flawless. I only use 2 pumps for my entire face. It's the kind of foundation that gets better with time: I put it on before leaving the house and just looks amazing after 1 hour and so on. As if it just responds so well to the skin's heat and movements. I discovered this foundation back in 2008 and I tried others along the way and nothing comes even close. I have sensitive skin and this keeps it looking healthy with that perfect glow. LOVE IT. And you must apply it with the GA foundation brush for that airbrushed look!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Natural Glow Makeup I have been wearing 9.5 for eleven years or better. The best makeup on the market. I have cyst acne and this makeup has good coverage, radiant, and long lasting. The runner-up is Chanel. The only thing I don't like is that 9.5 seemingly is to be discontinued. Set it with the luminous silk powder. The powder is excellent. Once you have applied the makeup on your skin it looks and feels natural not cakey. This makeup doesn't makes you look like the living dead (lol) if you like it heavy. Ladies this makeup is for all women of color and age. I have used them all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply The Best Foundation! I've used just about every high end/drugstore brand foundation and this one is my absolute favorite. I've been using GA Luminous Silk foundation for several years now and I love how it makes my skin look flawless, natural and luminous looking. I apply it with a foundation brush which gives me an airbrush finish. Coverage is buildable and it lasts all day, even in this hot Florida humidity. I have oily skin and this did not clog my pores. The price is a little steep, but so worth it. A bottle lasts me 3-4 months and I use it everyday.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great foundation!!! It's been almost an year since I first used this product. I didn't like to wear foundation before since it felt so heavy on my skin. After I got a job, I needed to do daily make up for my work and my friend recommended me this product. After all, I can't live without this product. I can apply this product on my face without heavy feeling on my skin and still it gives me adequate level of coverage for me. If you need more coverage, you can just apply more with some intervals (probably 30~60 secs interval) -- because its texture, it is totally ok to reapply this product. you'll not mess up with your make up. And in this way, I don't use concealer anymore. Overall, I sincerely recommend this product who wants to find light-wear foundation with moderate coverage.
