Rated 5 out of 5 by from IN LOVE I want to start of with saying THANK GOD for armani! I am extremely fair and I wear the shade number 2. It is a very neutral shade...possibly leaning slightly yellow. For us pale girls, foundation is the hardest product to find...most lines the lightest shade is still too dark for me. And if they are a match, it doesn't make my skin look good. This foundation is EVERYTHING to me. It matches perfectly, is a medium/buildable coverage (could sheer it out or get flawless), has spf, adds radiance, doesn't make me look greasy or dry, isn't heavy (thin consistency)...I can't say enough good things. I always get compliments on my makeup when I have this on. HOLY GRAIL people!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from wish i could have it! I have the luminous silk foundation in shade #3.75 since I have pinky undertones in my skin. it is the perfect and best colour match, but I find I need a matte finish foundation due to my combination/oily skin. The sales lady tried to match my skin tone, but she agreed that none of the colours were right for me. I ended up buying the lasting silk compact but even those colours were not a perfect match to the luminous silk colours. I hope others like me, will submit feedback asking Giorgio Armani to please broaden the colour selection in the Lasting Silk line to match the luminous silk line. Love the products, just wish I could have one in this Lasting Silk formula!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best foundation! Phenomenal! I have tried almost every foundation brand - pharmacy brands to high-end cosmetic counters/stores. They are all nice however, I could not find a foundation to match my skin tone and combination skin. I am fair, with pink undertones - some oliliness. At makeup counters, they always insisted on darker colors or thicker products to even it out. It inevitably looked yellow, felt too thick, looked darker (line along the chin), or wiped off. I recently purchased Lasting Silk UV 4.5 and have been completely impressed. I also bought the foundaiton brush. The color blends seamlessly into my skin, evens my skin tone, and lasts all day. I could not be happier. Absolutely worth the price - I will never buy another!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not perfect, but the best liquid foundation I've tried so far. To be fair, I have not found one that makes me think "oh my god this is it!". Especially with liquid foundations. I like feeling real comfortable like I don't have anything on, but that might be just a dream. But I must say that this one was the lightest, smooth satin-like liquid foundation that I've tried so far. I've been wearing make up for over 10 years and this is good. I just got one for my mom and she loves it too. One thing to keep in mind with color selection is that this is lighter than the luminous foundations. I wear shade # 6.5 for Long lasting, and 5.5 for luminous.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Blending Capabilities I use many of the Armani cosmetic products and find them all to be excellent. Luminous Silk #10 has been my foundation of choice for a few years now, but I wanted something with a matte finish so I purchased the Lasting Silk #9. The color was a little too light, but after speaking with a rep, she suggested to add a little golden bronzer #5 to forehead, temple and cheek...PERFECT! The color blended perfectly. The staying power, on my combination skin, is awesomely matte even after 9 hours with NO touch-ups. I love how easy Armani's products work with each other to achieve the ultimate look you're desiring!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolute silk Amazing. Truly amazing. I've used and experimented with many high end foundations and this is really unlike anything i've ever come across. Applies smoothly, looks like perfect SKIN- and lasts noticeably well on my very oily skin, in the hot humid summer, and for being a foundation that leans ever so slightly to the dewy side of satin finish foundations- isn't the absolute best in long wearing- but quite good. I do use master primer, set with pressed powder and do blot and re-powder throughout the day- but i do that with most foundations. It has to be something in how this is milled or something you have to have this on your face to understand the "wow" factor this has.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from my favorite foundation I've tried many foundations from cheap to high-end and this one is the best. It has good medium coverage and is incredibly lightweight. No one can tell i have foundation on when i'm wearing it but it covers very well. It softens the look of fine lines and makes pores invisible. it also brightens your skin without looking too shiny or greasy. I had my mother try this out and she loves it. It makes her look years younger, her skin has never looked so beautiful with other foundations. We both get compliments about our skin when we wear this foundation. I recommend it for all skin types as mine is oily and hers is dry, it works great for both of us. I would also recommend it to people who have very sensitive skin and tend to have acne breakouts easily. this is truly noncomedogenic. very very wonderful high quality product. I will be using this as long as it's made.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am obsessed with this product This product is my absolute favorite! This product was recommended to me while I was modeling. It provides a very natural look as well as photographs beautifully! Lasting silk UV foundation shade 5.5 is the one make-up item that I genuinely believe that I could not survive without. It is light-weight, but still great coverage (and very natural looking), and it makes my skin appear very youthful and even. It is more costly than some of the other products out there, but it is more than worth it. Thanks Giorgio Armani Beauty for supplying us with a great product!

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!
