Lasting Silk UV Foundation is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 46.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best foundation I have been using this for years and find it to be the best foundation ever! Don't know why Luminous Silk is much more famous cause to me this is the Holy Grail! Nice colours and texture, doesn't look that you have much makeup on. Dewy and natural! Love it! I hope they will never ever discontinue this, I could not survive without!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from DONT DISCONTINUE!!!! I've been using this foundation for at least 7 years. I've tried every foundation on the market, and nothing compares to this. The new power fabric is not good for oily skin. With the oils in it, it gets shiny quick. Lasting silk is the perfect light weight, long lasting foundation. I will be devastated if you discontinue it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Please do not discontinue this! This foundation is wonderful. It truly is long lasting and the best part is that it feels very lightweight on my skin. And the color match is perfect. I heard this is being discontinued and am very disappointed. The new Power Fabric foundation is nice too but I still strongly prefer the Lasting Silk which is lighter and in my opinion works better on skin that is combination/dry. I hope Armani will continue selling this because it's popular for good reason!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love, but... Absolutely love the texture and colour range. But please make a version without SPF! It oxidizes so the colour changes throughout the day...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Produce I have been using the Lasting silk for probably about 15 years. I have occasionally tried other brands but always come back to this product. I get compliments from strangers on my skin looking flawless. It just blends so easily and I Love it and will continue to use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Like it! I used to use the cream one,but they don't sell it any more.Obviously the cream one is the best. But this one is great. It's hydrating but not really long-lasting honestly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great natural coverage! I LOVE LOVE LOVE this foundation. It is the only kind that I wear ever!! great build-able coverage, but still feels lightweight. Lasts all day! If I am going out after work, I just have to blot the oil a bit (my face is oily) and maybe apply a bit more around the nose area and add powder - my face looks like it did 10 hours prior. This is also the only brand that has my skin tone as well. I am curious to try the new long wear foundation they just released, but have to wait to use up what I have of this one first.

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.
