Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hands Down Best Foundation I received a sample of this foundation with a Sephora order. When I used it first what I noticed was how little I needed and second how beautifully it melted into my skin. Absolutely flawless coverage that is light and pretty. I waited to buy the foundation because it was $65, but I realized I was buying so many subpar products I might as well invest in a foundation I know I love. I was at a friends house in the kitchen and we were all getting ready to go to dinner, I had forgotten a mirror and was blindly applying the luminous silk foundation. I was thinking worst case I can blend when the other girls are done with the mirror. One friend was watching me and she is notoriously against the look of heavy makeup and usually goes bare because she has trouble finding products she likes. When I was done applying the make-up, with my fingers without a mirror, she was was like "What foundation is that!? I watched you just apply a bit to your face and it looks perfect!". Obviously I let her know!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Used item I love this foundation, and always use only this one it’s very light and natural, but at this time I ordered it online and it had been used, I am very disappointed...

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not what I imagined. I waited so long to try this and was so excited when I finally ordered it. The shade was so off for 1. The coverage is minimal. Not happy with it at all.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ehhhh... I feel that for the price that this foundation is not much better than one a third the price. It seems to transfer and not set. A short time in from wearing it and it seems to start sliding off my face. The color is nice though.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not happy I have dry skin and this product made my skin look worse. It was too thick and not very luminous on me at all. The shade made my skin look chalky as well

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Name speaks for itself! Such a stunning shade that looks so natural and gives you a silky glow. Definitely on the light side. Not much coverage so if you have textured skin/uneven skin this is a miss.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Luminous Look I tried this on in the store and couldn't wait to get it. The 8.75 was a perfect match for my Olive undertone skin. Light weight and good coverage on first layer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What A Joy I am not a person who uses daily Face (Foundation) so it is a pleasure when I can pat this on my face using a brush or makeup sponge. Both tools put this luminous foundation on and it just makes my skin look glowing, not oily and even, not cakey. I am in my late 40s with oily T-zone and dry perimeter. The match is perfect and it feels as though I have nothing on my face. What a joy.
Date published: 2020-06-18
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful results Goes on very smooth and doesn’t sink in fine lines or pores! I picked this shade online and honestly wasn’t expecting it to be a good match for my skin tone, I didn’t see similar tones on any of the models and I am not really an experienced foundation user. It turned out to be a great match, doesn’t look like I am wearing that much makeup which was my ultimate goal since I don’t like that look on me

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Can't try yet. I ordered this a while back but due to COVIS shipping was delayed. I have now developed a tan and the color is too light. Gave to my daughter who likea it but said it seemed a little sticky on the oilier regions of her face. I will try in a darker shade but go to a department storw to get matched.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight I love this lightweight foundation. I’m usually a matte foundation girl but it’s nice to try something different with a luminous finish. I simply use a matte primer to help with my oily skin and or a matte setting spray.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE Did a fair amount of research on foundations for mature skin and this one got great reviews. A bit pricey but well worth it. Goes on smooth with little effort. Good coverage without being cakey or heavy. Wasn't sure of color so the online camera really helped

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So luminous its exactly as the name of the product states. Luminous silk. I wasnt sure i would be a fan. I had finally found my perfect foundation with NARS natural radiant foundation but thought i would go out on a whim and try something else. So glad i did. It is a very light coverage. You could probably get medium coverage with more applications. It truly leaves my skin with that luminous no make-up look.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Finish is unbeatable I have combination skin on the dry side. This foundation truly made my skin look so nature but healthy. I usually use one pump and apply with a beauty blender, most people can't tell I'm wearing a foundation, but it hides all the imperfections. It has a nice sheen, and what's the most important, it doesn't accentuate my dry patches. After finishing one bottle, I wanted to try something else, including those recommended by lots of youtubers for dry skin, but only this one doesn't show my dry patches, so I'll just stick with this one. I take one star off just because its shade range. I have very fair skin and both shade 2 and 3 are not fair enough for me.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Overrated Overhyped and overrated. The foundation wears as a mask and is sticky. For the cost, I was expecting much more.
Date published: 2020-05-31
Rated 1 out of 5 by from TERRIBLE I was so excited to get this foundation because i love using Armani perfumes except it was terrible! it felt disgusting on the skin, the color match was completely off, just a complete waste of money! oh and it literally took one month to get delivered!!
Date published: 2020-05-31
Rated 5 out of 5 by from great product I love the product. I am glad to see a new shade for darker skin tone 13.25. I have always had to go a shade darker but now that the new is out I have been using that shade. the match is closer. In the shade 13 there are 2 neutral and cool. I'm hoping the will be a warm in the 13 shade next. If so that will be my perfect shade. And also expand in the matte formula.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Foundation I've never ordered a foundation online before without having tested it in the store. But I couldn't locate a store in my area that sold this foundation. I'm very fair-skinned so I ordered number 2, fair neutral and it matched my complexion perfectly. I love the way it feels on my skin. It's not heavy and it looks very natural.

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.
