Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfection In a Bottle Best face makeup that doesn’t leave my face looking like I have on face makeup! I never needed to wear a foundation until.....age! I have tried many to give me a natural look and yet still cover me up. This is it. 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 Best Foundation I’m absolutely in love with the entire luminous silk line. If you want the “no makeup makeup” look - this is the answer. Feels like skincare. Looks like your own skin, just enhanced

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 A Must Have This makeup looks like your not wearing anything! It is so light but the coverage is amazing still covers sun spots and dark circles under eyes, freckles, I absolutely love it! Don’t have to use powder on top to try and hide anything, I am in 40’s and get people guessing my age at 32-34 when I wear this! think it is the best foundation in the world! It is amazing and will never try anything else after using this!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Outstanding foundation! I I love my Luminous Silk foundation because it because , and skin- like on my face. It wears all day and beyond, and doesn’t feel like I am wearing anything on my face. I am 53 , I definitely feel way younger when I wear my Luminous silk, because it adds a youthful glow to my skin. I’m so happy that I treated myself for my birthday to your Armani Luminous Silk foundation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best. Foundation. Ever. This foundation feels like a second skin! It's difficult for me to find one that doesn't make me look gray and one that actually fits my skin tone. This foundation is AMAZING!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not for me. The texture is lovely and lives up the the silken fluidity promised in the product's name. The color, however, is not compatible with my skin tone. I looked that swatches, studied those forearms----to no avail, evidently. I returned the Armani and will wait to try the foundation on in-store.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this foundation I don't wear foundation every day, but when I do this is my favorite. It gives a sheer glow and isn't cakey. It has buildable coverage and goes well with any bronzer, blush, and highlighter. Would recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from In love! From the first time I tried a sample I fell in love and I had to buy it. I’m not a heavy makeup girl so I’ve only worn it a handful of times so far but every time I get a compliment on how flawless my skin looks. It doesn’t clog my pores or break me out and it wears like a dream! I feel like I’m not wearing a ton but it covers so well!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful but it fades Beautiful glowing foundation, the coverage is a medium. The only reason I’m giving it a 4 is that it doesn’t last very long, it fades during the day.

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.
