Customer reviews
Lasting Silk UV Foundation is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 62.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from absolute favorite I am am so incredibly sad to find out this is being discontinued. It's the best. Armani's color choices perfectly suit my olive skin tone. This foundation felt light on my skin and offered buildable coverage that ACTUALLY lasted. The luminous silk had a similar result for the first hour or so, but didn't last nearly as long as the lasting silk on my combination skin.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Terrible shopping experience but nice product I bought this for its attractive sale price. It is not very thick but can still conceal the spots on my face.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SAD THIS FOUNDATION IS DISCONTINUED This foundation is fantastic! it gives medium coverage and stays put all day on my semi-oily and sensitive skin. It has never given me a breakout, and looks fantastic in photos. It makes me incredibly depressed to hear this line is no more! WHY ARMANI, WHYYYYYYYY!!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from PLEASE DO NOT DISCONTINUE IT! I've been using this for more than 2 yrs. It gives me the perfect coverage that I want. Despite that my face looks shiny (a bit oily) after a day's wear, it is so lightweight and my skin has been liking it so much! I literally cannot believe they will discontinue it! I tried the new Powder Fabric foundation, but it is so thick and I cannot find a perfect shade for me. Right now I have been freaking out what I should do without my favorite foundation :(

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lasting Silk Foundation Please do not discontinue!! I've been using this foundation for years now. I've strayed and tried other Armani foundations to no avail. This is hands down my favorite foundation. I notice my color is gone and that stores are limited or do not sell this foundation at all anymore. I'm heartbroken my holy grail foundation is gone

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easily the best foundation of all time I've been using lasting silk for 4 years now. Can't use another foundation. This is second skin medium coverage with a skin enhancing, traceless finish that leaves everyone thinking my skin looks transformed the day I wear it. Thank you Armani beauty for this and please never discontinue it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Please please don't discontinue I just recently discovered this foundation. I heard so many people raving about luminous silk but for my combination skin it's too dewy. Lasting silk is the perfect medium coverage and finish. When I asked sale asosiate what is the closest coverage to lasting silk for comb/oily skin she recommended power fabric. I tried a sample of it and didn't like it as much. It's too heavy for me as I don't have problem skin. So sad to hear they are discontinuing lasting silk ((((

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!

Q&A

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, giorgioarmanibeauty-usa.com 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.

Is this foundation being discontinued? It is becoming more difficult to find online.

Asked by: armanilover90

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!
