Rated 5 out of 5 by from The BEST for skin of any age! As a makeup artist, I use this foundation in my kit and always get rave reviews!
Date published: 2020-03-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect foundation Have used this product for almost 10 years. Frequently asked “what make up do you wear, your skin looks great?”

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it This so far is my favorite foundation. Makes my face look dewy but doesnt feel cakey or oily...
Date published: 2020-03-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely amazing foundation!!! I am so in love with this foundation! It gives good coverage but is so smooth and looks like second skin! It hides all imperfections but still looks natural and never caked! My new fav!! I don’t know why it took me so long to try it!! :)

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Save your $$ It was ok but just ok. I decided to return it as I did not think it was worth the price. And it’s been at least 3 weeks, I still haven’t seen a refund. Very disappointing.
Date published: 2020-02-23
Rated 4 out of 5 by from I like it I really like this foundation it's the exact match to my Lancome, but the only downside is that it makes my Tzone oily which does not happens with Lancome, and if happens with another foundation my Laura Mercier translucent powder fixes it, but not this one. Aside of that it is really good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this foundation Great foundation...for me. Goes on like skin and does not cake. I have used Chanel for ever but after 45 it was not sitting well on my maturing skin PLUS chanel would cake and turn orange when it was very hot. Armani goes on well and if I need a little moisture, then I just add more moisture to my skin. I hope they NEVER discontinue it. Its so difficult to find a foundation that works with ones individual skin type and color.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Blends well Pricey but it blends well. It's buildable to cover brown spots. Moisturize than foundation is the key.
Date published: 2020-01-29
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite product I love everything about this brand and this product! It’s is light and luminous but not so luminous that you feel oily! I will definitely be using this product for ever!
Date published: 2020-01-25
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worth it I bought it a month ago and i have to say that it is the best so far..very easy to find the right colour and coverage is great as well. 4 star simply because I still have to apply a bit of almond oil on my face to make it stay smooth as I do have very dry skin. But with this trick it won’t go away and it stays really good on the face.
Date published: 2020-01-17
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best foundation ever Perfect for my sensitive skin. I have rosacea and this foundation blurs all redness but with extremely light coverage

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Excellent product, well worth the price. This was for my daughter & she absolutely loves it!
Date published: 2020-01-06
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not blown away like I was hoping to be I really wanted to love but think I’ll have to settle for like. Doesn’t have the staying power I’d hoped for, especially compared to other high-end brands I’ve tried. Starts to get “cakey” after about 1/2 day. I made the mistake of trying to color match online, clearly that’s on me. This was a splurge for me, don’t think I will re-purchase.
Date published: 2020-01-03
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surpasses other brands I have spent a ton of money searching for the perfect make up for my skin. A foundation that doesn’t set into the lines in your face or make you look older than without make up has been a chore. This foundation surpasses others. My skin looks amazing finally. I have been recommending Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk to all my clients.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product This is a foundation that truly makes my skin look wonderful. I receive compliments when wearing it!
Date published: 2019-12-10
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous Great coverage lasts for hours even without a primer. Good color range. Blendable and buildable. Nothing I’ve tried looks as good at the end of a 20hour work day. The bottle size is good for the price.
Date published: 2019-12-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Phenomenal!! I don’t know why I am new to this product. I wish I would have discovered it earlier because it is literally the beat foundation ever. However, I can only order online because the closest store is about 4 hours away. The first time I ordered it a few shades too dark, so I had to order another super light one so I can mix them. I wish there was a closer store :(

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Good foundation, bad purchase experience Great foundation, decided to purchase two since the deal was great, free samples + 20% off. Well, package arrived with no foundation but only samples. I have emailed customer service, waiting for a reply. The company really needs to do a better job in checking the items before mailing out. Really unprofessional.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nothing Else Comes Close I’m in my 70s and want serious coverage but not a matte finish. I get a wonderful result by mixing Power Fabric and Luminous Silk. Thanks, Armani!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One and only!!! I absolutely love this foundation! I kept seeing reviews and that it was award winning so I decided to try it! Went to Sephora and bought it and will NEVER use anything else! It is perfect coverage and on my mature skin it goes on flawlessly with my brush!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too Watery Did not like at all. Very "THIN" foundation. Returned it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Luminous silk foundation Love it! One of two foundations I’ve ever used that goes on smoothly and doesn’t feel heavy. I also have sensitive skin and didn’t have any kind of reaction to it! Will definitely buy it again.
Date published: 2019-11-10
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smooth as silk as the name suggests This foundation is like silk and like wearing nothing at all. Best foundation for my 56 yr old skin and my 25yr old daughter loves it too! Age has no barrier.
