Luminous Silk Foundation is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 150.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from wedding foundation I have worn this product for three years now. I really save it for special occasions because it gives a flawless natural finish. I wear the Maestro for everyday wear but since the luminous silk does not contain an SPF it is perfect for photo ready events! I can't wait to glow in this amazing foundation on my wedding day. Thank you Armani for such a 5 star product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best purchase! This is my recently best purchase for a foundation. I didn't see any SPF number in there, since I got allergy on any chemical sun protection product. I didn't get allergy on this one, so i guess it doesn't have it. This foundation is light, but it does cover my sunspot. I got shade No.5. It works so good on my skin. My face doesn't change into oily after wearing it for a day, which I really like. It makes my skin looks bright and gives me a fresh looking. And not exaggerating, my skin is smoother than before after using it. It is not only a foundation, it also does a moisture work for me, but everyone has a different skin type or condition though. And also, this is a small-bottled foundation, 30ml, but I think it is worth for the purchase since it works really well on my face, and I only use two drops per time. Hope this helps.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Luminous silk foundation I absolutely love this foundation. I get more compliments on my makeup than I ever have. I have dry skin and this foundation makes your skin look supple and glowing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Love Love Very beautiful foundations that is light as a feather. Makes my skin look beautiful without looking like I'm wearing foundation. It was recommended to me by my coworker and I would highly recommend to anyone. This is not suitable for "cover up" just FYI, but perfect for luminosity.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magical fantasy Silk title is self suggestive for the product and at the same time fails to cover all the charisma of the foundation

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The BEST! Nothing compares I have been using this for 3-4 years and it's perfect in every way. Nothing compares to it. Every time I try a different product, I instantly regret it. Why bother when this is perfect. It may seem pricey but it lasts a long time. I only use a pump for light coverage but you can use more to l build more coverage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Foundation I bought this foundation about three weeks ago and have used it several times since and I must say, I absolutely adore this foundation. I have oily combination acne prone skin with hyperpigmentation left behind from previous breakouts and 1) this foundation did not break me out, and 2) it decently covered my hyperpigmentation. With that being said I wouldn't necessarily say it completely covered all the acne scars to the point of perfect skin, but that's not what I was looking for in this foundation, if it did it would lose its very natural look upon application, I simply dabbed a tiny bit of concealer on a couple of darker spots. This foundation gives an exceptional amount of coverage while still feeling weightless, it really is the lightest liquid foundation I've ever worn, and when it's on it really looks like my natural skin just ten times better. If you have an oily t-zone like me you definitely need to set this foundation with a really good setting powder, nothing too matte that's going to remove the luminosity of this foundation though. I've tried a couple of powders with the luminous silk and I found my favorite is the Nars Light Reflecting Setting Powder, I just set it and can literally go a whole 8 hour day without blotting or reapplying, plus these two work so well together when photographed as well. The luminosity still shines through and the Luminous Silk really keeps it high pigmentation all day long, it's an exception foundation so if you're on the fence definitely go for it. For color reference i'm C2 in Mac Studio Fix and purchased 4 light, golden in the Luminous Silk. Perfect color match for those of you with that yellow undertone.

Which is the best primer to use with this foundation? 

Asked by: Makeupfiend
Thank you for your question. The best primer to use with Luminous Silk Foundation depends on your skin. Use Maestro UV Makeup Primer if you would like to protect from sun and environment. Use Fluid Master Primer if you have textured skin or large pores. Use Light Master Primer if you have dull skin.
