Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Natural I use the Luminous Silk Foundation in the summer. Very light. I will mix the Power Fabric and the Luminous Silk Foundation for a special occasion and winter time for more coverage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Luminous Silk Foundation I have used this product for several years and love it. It is easy to apply, stays on for the day and is light on my skin. I recommend it to everyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Foundation This is my 2nd bottle of luminous silk foundation. Both are travel size. I keep one in my travel bag. You don't need the bigger bottle as a little goes a long way. It is not heavy on the face. I love it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good for dry skin I enjoy this foundation. I have dry skin and this does not feel oily or heavy. This also does not cake on the skin. I do not use a primer with this, fyi. I enjoy this foundation and have no complaints.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Travel Size I bought the travel size foundation on line and the texture & color of the foundation was slightly different that my full size foundation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Natural looking finish Have seen reviews of this foundation for years. Decided finally to try it. Very happy with results. My skin is fair and #02 is perfect. Lightweight and doesn’t discolor on skin throughout the day. Looks good at end of day without touch-up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sets Perfectly! I bought this product because I read that Makeupbyariel used it on Kylie Jenner. No idea if this is true but I will forever use this foundation. I use it with the Armani brand ti ted primer and a little goes a long way. It completely covers and blends with my skin to look like Im not even wearing makeup and I have had no breakouts from it. I used to use Tarte and I felt like my face would get oily at the end of the day and oxidize into an orange color after a few hours of heat exposure. This foundation doesnt do any of those things to my face. It is a lot more money than Tarte but by how its going, I think it will last longer and is overall just worth the money. Dont waste your time on anything else!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flawless This foundation is easy to apply evenly and buildable for heavier coverage but never looks cakey or unnatural.
Date published: 2019-06-01
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Oh my God After trying so many different foundations I finally bought this gem and it completely changed my life! This gives a velvety soft soft focus natural Matte finish but still manages to keep your complexion dewy! I just love the inoffensive makeupy smell and the fact that it plays well with setting powder, dries fast without feeling uncomfortable and has a great staying power while allowing your natural oils show through! As a matter of fact, I work as a makeup artist and sweat a lot and I daily wear this baby for 12 to 15 hours and at the end of the day when I look in the mirror I don't feel like gross. To the contrary I am loving my skin and the way that it looks ! My colleagues always comment on how beautiful and well rested my skin looks without a mask effect! Hands down one of the best if not the best

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product! I started using Giorgio Armani make-up over 15 years ago and I would not use anything else. I love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely Foundation I am very happy with my Luminous Silk Foundation. It takes just a little to provide a nice light and sheer coverage, but it definitely smooths out any skin imperfections. At my age, the liquid is better than powder for my dryer skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING! This is what 60 years young looks like using this beautiful finish foundation! Found my holy grail!
Date published: 2019-05-12
Rated 5 out of 5 by from FLAWLESS This foundation makes your skin FLAWLESS. I really didnt believe the hype until I tried it myself. Looks amazing not only in pictures but in real life. I really didnt think I'd find my "holy grail" foundation until now. I see why so many people including Kim k rave about this. And I see why it's so expensive. I get it now. This is my holy grail and I'll be buying the full size soon. Amazing job Armani you really killed it with this one!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I look ashy I have been using this foundation for about a month and though I love the texture and the natural coverage, the end result isn’t as glorified. The foundation makes me look very grey. I matched to a shade 9, as it was complimentary to the shade warm honey I use in the foundation stick range from Bobbi Brown which is a perfect match to my skin tone. However, I am not sure why I look grey. Any solutions?
Date published: 2019-05-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best foundation on the market With in the past month I have bought this foundation and I am so glad I did! I have tried tons of luxury foundations over the years and this is hands down the best foundation I have ever used. I will be a life long user of this product!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Parabens and aluminum. I’m so disappointed. I’ve been using this foundation for almost a decade and I just now realised that this foundation contains parabens. Still. In 2019? When all other makeup lines are putting out cleaner products with the health and safety of their clientele in mind, Armani is still putting out foundation with parabens? Say it isn’t so. I have 5 bottles I now how to throw away. So disappointed and honestly slightly panicked considering I wear this stuff every single day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best foundation loving it ! I'm in my late 40's ... for my budget it was something to thing about it, but I get tired to try others Department brands and feel a thick layer of product. After hear some bloggers about this, I decide to buy it and......... the best decision I ever made... match perfect with my tone, I see that glow thru my skin and the best part.... it feels like my own skin....... I love it.....
Date published: 2019-04-20
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best foundation I’ve ever used This is literally the best formula I’ve ever seen in a foundation and I honestly have used so many high end foundations. I have oily, acne prone skin and this sits amazingly on my complexion. It covers, it feels light weight, it lasts and most importantly it leaves my skin so beautiful after wearing it almost all day. MUST HAVE, REALLY WORTH IT.
Date published: 2019-04-16
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not long wearing I wish this would have worked for me, I’m happy I was able to get this in a travel size to try rather than buying a large bottle and realizing it did not work well for my skin. I was not impressed with the coverage, and it does not wear well on oily skin. I will not be repurchasing this foundation. ;(
Date published: 2019-04-13
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best!!! This is my favorite foundation of all time and I’ve tried many. It looks so natural on the skin but can be built up for more coverage without looking cakey. Love and highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A learning curve I originally found this foundation to be splotchy but a friend recommended using the flat makeup brush instead of a beauty blender. I do a layer all over and add another layer to my trouble spots. Looks smooth but like skin. Love it!!
