Compact Foundation

Drape your skin in luxurious coverage inspired by the textiles of Giorgio Armani. This ultra lightweight powder foundation is infused with micronized optical effect particles and UV defense ingredients. The combination of highly-selected spherical, bouncy powders and small-particle talc creates a soft and smooth formula that glides onto the skin's surface, leaving behind an all-day luminous radiance.

Intense protection SPF 34
Designed for the sensual on-the-go woman, who is not only in search of perfection but also protection, the silky compact foundation consists of a new formula that, in spite of its lightweight texture, provides a high level of UV protection (SPF 34) and preservation from signs of premature aging.

8 hour resistant veil and color*Micro-fil™ mattifying particles composed of lipophobic and hydrophobic powders, increase the resistance of the makeup over time. The specific powders therefore eliminate the risk of foundation color change during wear. The ultra fineness of the talc particles in the formula allows a smooth deposit, and therefore a better adhesion to the skin, making the product highly resistant throughout the day.

*self assessment by 63 women.
Apply with the sponge for buildable and lasting coverage    

Backstage tip:
Use the sponge damp for maximum coverage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Please Bring This Back! This was the perfect amount of matte without looking like a chalkboard and still have a healthy glow without looking greasy while adding coverage. I need this back AND the liquid foundation before I kill myself!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite foundation but why is it out of stock? I have been using this product since 2010, and I love it. Very lightweight to wear and doesn't have a cakey makeup texture. Blends with my skin color very well. I am extremely disappointed it is never in stock and I am running out of my last supply. If it is on longer going to be produced, please remove it from your website.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is definitely a holy grail! The last time i used this powder was around 4 years ago because i ran out of it, so meanwhile during those 4 years, i had to use other powders because i never bought this one again. What i remember was that this powder used to give me the smoothes coverage ever. My skin looked like a porcelain skin making it full coverage and it glided so delicate making my skin so beautiful and i used to have alot of acne back then. However, I just rebought it again the other day, and let me tell you that this powder does not compare to anything i had tried when i stopped using it. I have no idea why i stopped using it because it is the most beautiful formula i have ever tried. And i used lot of high end powders. Moreover, It is even better than the luminous silk new powder because it is matte and more full coverage, but this matte effect gives such a radiant look to the skin which is crazy because many matte products make your skin flat and not this one. I just discored i do not know what will happen if they discontinued this because this trully makes the skin look ultra flawless and so even with any no effort what so ever.

Thank you for your question. Giorgio Armani Beauty is sorry to let you know that the Lasting Silk UV franchise has been discontinued. The best shade match from Lasting Silk UV Compact Shade 5 Natural Beige would be the Luminous Silk Compact in Shade 4.5 Light Neutral or Luminous Silk Compact Shade 5.5 Medium Neutral. If these are not the correct shade for you, giorgioarmanibeauty-usa.com offers complimentary returns on all foundations.

Hello, Do the colors match up with the liquid foundation? I am a 6 in the liquid form, would that work?

Asked by: Samantha
Thank you for your question. Yes, the shades of Lasting Silk UV Foundation and Lasting Silk UV Compact match, therefore Lasting Silk UV Compact in Shade 6 would be the best match.
