Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wonderful foundation. Love, love this foundation. Have used it for years. The trouble is the dispenser.

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 5 out of 5 by from Found my perfect foundation I absolutely love this product! I am 65 years old and have lots of laugh lines. This product does not enhance my wrinkles, rather it smooths out my complexion. It’s not heavy nor has a “caked on appearance “- I have no idea how this happens with such a light foundation. I love that I can “build” in troubled areas without difficulty. It provides a lovely, natural glow. I’ve found my perfect foundation. Thank you!!!!!

I try to buy on sale or when special promos happen however I have also bought full price because well it’s worth every penny!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As good as it gets This is ,hands down, the best makeup I have ever used. It is like night and day between my previous makeup and this one. I am a senior woman and I don't want plastic surgery or anything else because it's too costly but I want to look at good as I can. This makeup looks so natural and covers exceptionally well. When I take photos I am pleased with the way I look. I will never change makeup again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great foundation to build on:) My skin looks great and it applies smoothly. It is quite pricey. My only problem is possibly the color, which is due to the fact that I couldn’t try it on in the department store due to COVID-19. The color looks like it blends well, I just wonder if there was a shade that would match a bit closer to my skin color. Not at all heavy or sticky. It is like wearing nothing at all. Also, it does not settle into lines:)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful “Skin” Since I began using foundation, I’ve received more compliments on my “skin” - My hair is silver white, my eyes brown, and I’ve been using the color medium neutral.

Q&A

I have tried 5.75 and it looked light and ashy, while the 5.5 looked darker. I am returning them but I like the formula. I am a Tom Ford stick foundation 5.5 and an Estee Lauder 3 W Tawny. What Armani luminous silk foundation should I get?

It’d be great if there’re more golden tone color between fair to medium shades available. My best match color is mixing 30% of #4& 70% of #5.75.   There’s not many shades with golden tone between 4-6. will there be more shades coming out soon?

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?
