Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works super well on Works super well on my skin (combo/oily!), blends in really well - def recommend using a beauty blender for it to really let it melt into your skin. Super easy to apply and only need about a pump or two for medium coverage. Definitely will be repurchasing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite foundation of My favorite foundation of alllll time. It’s light to medium coverage and buildable. Luminous Silk is the only foundation that manages to keep my oily skin in check, cover the texture on my face and not break me out. It has a thin consistency that doesn’t leave your face feeling heavy— I HATE the feeling of makeup or thick creams on my face and I love that this foundation is weightless. However, that being said, if you’re a fan of full coverage foundation then this isn’t for you. Luminous Silk has a natural finish, covers my blemishes, hides my texture AND doesn’t cling to dry patches. Run, don’t walk to purchase this, you’ll be glad you did. For best results apply onto face after priming, let sit for a second Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation then blend with a wet beauty blender!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is exactly This product is exactly what it was hyped up to be. It glides so seamlessly on my skin and gives my sometimes dull skin a lovely, luminous, airbrushed glow. I’m really impressed with its formula and how it keeps in tact throughout the day when I’m wearing it. It’s lightweight and almost skin like. I love it so much I barely want to use it. You can not beat the feel of this foundation!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am blown away I am blown away at the consistency & finish of this product! It’s lightweight but super buildable with a dewy finish that leaves skin glowing! I have combination skin (more dry than oily) and struggle with redness & uneven skin-tone. This foundation leaves my skin looking hydrated, even & gorgeous. I’d recommend this foundation to just about anyone!

I like how it looks natural on the face like you didn't put any foundation plus it's very looking like hydrated look on the face!! even if it's expensive it's all good to me, you are just paying for what you are getting! the coverage is awesome too from light to full coverage. love love this since I had try this and using it for so several years now I have never tried and look for any foundation.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from If you are looking If you are looking for a natural dewy foundation then this is for you!! The best way I found to apply this is with my hands. I love the way it looks with cream products and mascara. Why I took a star off is the price for a product that’s not long lasting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is THE only This is THE only foundation I use. I don't love full coverage but wanted something for when I felt like doing my whole face and I don't even notice this is on after application. It feels super natural and evens out my skin beautifully. Will be buying this for life!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best foundation for mature skin I mix this foundation with a little serum, illuminator and my face looks flawless. I also wear a tinted moisturizer instead of foundation. So I noticed that this foundation can oxidize and get darker. That's because mine is almost a year old. If you have mature skin, try adding a drop of serum or any drop of oil. I use a brush to apply it and follow that up with a beauty blender sponge and my face looks hydrated and radiant. I am a neutral medium and the 4.5 is just right for me. I am going to buy another bottle that is one shade lighter, and mix them for a perfect winter shade. You will not be sorry with this purchase. It's not too glowy and will not settle into fine lines, not will it move around.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I honestly hated this I honestly hated this product to be perfectly honest I felt like I could never cover up my imperfections and at the time my skin wasn’t even broken out I just had some redness and I could barely cover it it was really oily and broke me out it also was very Cakey and was impossible to find a color match

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This has been my This has been my holy grail of foundations for the last 10 years. Honestly, it is the VERY best. Doesn't sink into fine lines. Great for all skin types. Buildable, so can be less or fuller coverage. Color matching is simply perfection. Worth EVERY dollar spent hands down!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I got this foundation I got this foundation from Sephora and it does wonders to my skin. The formula is so rich and hydrates my skin! I have extremely dry skin and I have a lot of dry patches and somehow this foundation still makes my skin so effortlessly flawless. The foundation has medium to full coverage and it’s really easy to blend. I never got a pricey foundation before but this foundation is worth it!!! Def a blessing for people with dry skin!! The foundation also lasts a long time and a little goes a long way. So worth it!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I wanted to try I wanted to try this foundation for probably two years, and finally picked it up last week! I wanted to love it so bad, SO BAD. It looked gorgeous in some places, but in others it looked very cakey and patchy and dry. I don’t have dry patches and I even exfoliated and dermaplaned to see if I could get it to work better. Yesterday I tried it for the fourth time and I just can’t keep it. It just doesn’t work well with my skin and possibly my other products. Try it anyways though! It might work well for you

It appears that you’ve added new shades since my last purchase. It looks as if the lowest number shades are not necessarily the lightest. So, a light medium shade can have a lower number than a light. Am I correct?

Can never repurchase the correct shade because the # disappears under the bottle.  I would be happy to pay for sample packets of shades that may work for me, rather than pay $65 for wrong color.  Not interested is posting my pic and testing.
