Customer reviews
Lasting Silk UV Foundation is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 55.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Please do not discontinue the Lasting Silk !! I've been using this foundation for 8 years and have not found anything that can compare over the years. I have sensitive reactive skin, and this is the only foundation that is gentle enough for me to use. I was recently told that this is now being continued, and very disappointed! Please reconsider and continue selling this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Please Don't Discontinue I've only just started using this foundation, but one use made me a believer! no foundation i've tried (including other armani foundations) can compare to this one!! i love it so much! reading reviews, I'm seeing that i am not the only one! i have dry skin with the occasional breakout. it covers everything i need covered but lets my skin breathe. it doesn't look like foundation. it looks like great skin. Please don't discontinue this amazing foundation!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Please don't discontinue this! As matter fact, this is the very FIRST and the ONLY foundation I use. It gives me nice full coverage and still give me enough glow! I have tried the new powder fabric one, I did not like it. Heard that you will replace this one with the new powder fabric foundation, I am pretty upset about the decision. I just wish my voice get heard :) This is the best foundation! And the strong connection keeps me going back to you

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lasting Silk....THE BEST!!! Been using this for 10+years! Have numerous high end foundations unused as i always go back to this! Tried the power foundation, it just doesn't compare, too heavy and hard to apply evenly. I live in a warm climate so i need something that will hold up and look great through the day. Heard this is being discontinued...i hope Armani will replace with something comparable that has an SPF.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect~~ This foundation is lightly colored and has a natural skin tone. It is perfect for me who prefer natural makeup.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Please don't discontinue!!!!! We need it! Makeup-aholic. Tried them all. This is the best foundation for my Oily skin. I dis-like the colors and muddy undertones of the new skin fabric in comparison to lasting silk. I dislike the texture and consistency on my skin as well. I love love the lasting silk and I wear everything from maybelline to cle de peau. 5.5 + 6.5 are my ideal match. I Mix them to get perfect shade and i have loved it for years.

I have been wearing luminous silk 4 and I am thinking about trying the power fabric for more coverage. The shades seem a little bit different for the two series, so I wonder if you could give me some guidance as of which shade I should go for? Thanks!

Asked by: Naomi
Thank you for your question. The best shade match from Luminous Silk Foundation in Shade 4 for light skin with golden undertones is Power Fabric Foundation Shade 4.5 for light skin with golden undertones. The best shade match from Lasting Silk UV Foundation in Shade 4 for fair skin with neutral undertones is Power Fabric Foundation in Shade 3.5 for fair skin with neutral undertones. If these are not the correct shade for you, offers complimentary returns on all foundations.

I have been wearing Maestro Fusion 5.5 for 5+ years.  I love it but looking for more coverage.  So, I'm thinking about trying the Lasting Silk UV formula however not sure if I should go with 5.75 or 6.5.  Any guidance will be greatly appreciated.  Thanks!

Asked by: Laura
Thank you for your question. Power Fabric Foundation in Shade 5.5 for medium skin with neutral undertones or Lasting Silk UV Foundation in Shade 7 for medium to tan skin with neutral undertones would be the best shade matches for Maestro Fusion Foundation in Shade 5.5.

I'm wearing the Luminous Silk number 3.0 so what color should I get for the Lasting Silk? I have a warm undertone and definitely don't want anything that looks too dark. For MAC reference I'm NC20-25.

Hello, Is it true that Lasting Silk is being discontinued? Please say it isn't so. I will be so sad!
