Lasting Silk UV Foundation is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 69.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bring it Back I have been wearing this foundation for over 10 yrs., and was so disappointed to see you discontinue it. When I wear it, people always comment - "you have great skin". It's the best makeup on the market - long-wearing yet natural. Please bring it back!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Foundation I wore this foundation on my wedding day and it was absolutely gorgeous. It lasted all day long in the heat and humidity. I am really sad to hear that the product is being discontinued. I'm not sure that I will find anything else that even compares.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this foundation! I really hate to see this discontinued! Lasting Silk has great coverage and staying power! The colors can be a bit deceiving as I am a medium skin color but #7 matches me perfect. Hope Armani rethinks the decision to discontinue. Meanwhile, glad I stocked up in Italy in November.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Why discontinue a great product ??? This is the best foundation it has it all color , coverage, wear, weight, spf and I am struggling to find a replacement in the other Armani foundations! The others are too heavy or too sheer and the color selection is not as good . Unfortunately this will be the first time in years I move to another beauty brand to find a foundation . Please please bring it back !!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from absolute favorite I am am so incredibly sad to find out this is being discontinued. It's the best. Armani's color choices perfectly suit my olive skin tone. This foundation felt light on my skin and offered buildable coverage that ACTUALLY lasted. The luminous silk had a similar result for the first hour or so, but didn't last nearly as long as the lasting silk on my combination skin.

Q&A

I have been wearing luminous silk 4 and I am thinking about trying the power fabric for more coverage. The shades seem a little bit different for the two series, so I wonder if you could give me some guidance as of which shade I should go for? Thanks!

Asked by: Naomi
Thank you for your question. The best shade match from Luminous Silk Foundation in Shade 4 for light skin with golden undertones is Power Fabric Foundation Shade 4.5 for light skin with golden undertones. The best shade match from Lasting Silk UV Foundation in Shade 4 for fair skin with neutral undertones is Power Fabric Foundation in Shade 3.5 for fair skin with neutral undertones. If these are not the correct shade for you, giorgioarmanibeauty-usa.com offers complimentary returns on all foundations.

I have been wearing Maestro Fusion 5.5 for 5+ years.  I love it but looking for more coverage.  So, I'm thinking about trying the Lasting Silk UV formula however not sure if I should go with 5.75 or 6.5.  Any guidance will be greatly appreciated.  Thanks!

Asked by: Laura
Thank you for your question. Power Fabric Foundation in Shade 5.5 for medium skin with neutral undertones or Lasting Silk UV Foundation in Shade 7 for medium to tan skin with neutral undertones would be the best shade matches for Maestro Fusion Foundation in Shade 5.5.

Is this foundation being discontinued? It is becoming more difficult to find online.

Asked by: armanilover90

I'm wearing the Luminous Silk number 3.0 so what color should I get for the Lasting Silk? I have a warm undertone and definitely don't want anything that looks too dark. For MAC reference I'm NC20-25.

Asked by: Ami17

Hello, Is it true that Lasting Silk is being discontinued? Please say it isn't so. I will be so sad!
