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.

Apply with the sponge for buildable and lasting coverage    

Backstage tip:
Use the sponge damp for maximum coverage.

I ordered shade 1 but it’s too light for me. None of my local Nordstroms have this in-store so I can’t go there to shade match. I am fair skinned with a cool, neutral-leaning-pink undertone. Can you please advise me on which shade would work best for me?

Hi there! Thank you for reaching out about Giorgio Armani Power Fabric Foundation Balm. Based on your skin color we suggest you try shade 5 or 5.25. This is a natural-matte full coverage foundation. An Ultra longwear pigments deliver all-day matte coverage in a revolutionary balm to powder technology that transforms from sensual balm, to a blendable cream during application, and finishes as powder for a flawless non-greasy look. Hope this information is helpful and hope you continue using Giorgio Armani with great satisfaction!

Do the shades correspond to the luminous silk foundation shades? I am a 5 in that, would I also be a 5 in the foundation balm? Also, is it best applied with a sponge, brush or fingers? Thanks

Asked by: Ilene
I found that this product DID apply best with a beauty sponge. As far as shade descriptions go, the shade I ordered is too light (shade 1) so I’m also hoping they answer your question about corresponding shades. Hope this helps!
