Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfection I have tried many foundations over my lifetime ( I'm 60) this foundation is by far the most perfect I've ever used. I will not use anything else, so please Armani don't ever get rid of this product.
Date published: 2017-09-19
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! Love the way it feels and the fact that it's light. They sent the perfect color just by answering a few of their questions. I will be buying it again!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Foundation Color too light. Had used an Armani foundation before that was more silky and provided better coverage, that I liked a lot more

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Would love it if they had my shade I've tried samples of this foundation several times and every time I absolutely love it. It applies smoothly, lasts well, feels great, and makes my skin look amazing (especially in photos). However, no matter how much I want to buy it, there just isn't a shade that matches my skin well enough (which I know is hard to believe, as there are a lot of options!). I have light very yellow/olive skin (for example KGD 213 Aqua is an almost perfect - but slightly dark - match for me), but unfortunately none of these shades are yellow enough, or they're too dark for me. I really, really hope Armani continues to expand their shade range to eventually include a shade that will match me because I will buy it without hesitation!

Which is the best primer to use with this foundation? 

Asked by: Makeupfiend
Thank you for your question. The best primer to use with Luminous Silk Foundation depends on your skin. Use Maestro UV Makeup Primer if you would like to protect from sun and environment. Use Fluid Master Primer if you have textured skin or large pores. Use Light Master Primer if you have dull skin.
