Customer reviews
Luminous Silk Foundation is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 190.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful! I had to order online as it is not available in my city. The customer service representative was very helpful. I told her what color I wore in a different brand and she was able to use that to match me perfectly. The Make-up is beautiful! I have oily skin all over -not just T zone. I routinely put Shine Stopper under it and it lasts all day. It probably would be great without it too. I don't feel it on my face. I bought it for my wedding originally because I read multiple reviews stating it does not cause flashbacks. I wi. Definitely buy it again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Always a winner I've been using this foundation for about one year and I simply cannot go back to my old foundation. I gave this one a try last year when my sister recommended it and omg it's simply perfect. I have combo skin and this works wonders for me.

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.
