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 Great product! This is the product I was looking for, my skin looks glowy and not dry. I love it!!

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.

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 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!

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?

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.....

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.

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 Very Natural Appearance I believe I have found my favorite foundation! The shade and texture are superb. The coverage is perfect. Worth every penny!
Date published: 2019-03-30
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!!
Date published: 2019-03-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceeds expectations I didn't think that this would cover enough as I'm a mature woman but did not want to cakey finish. It's very buildable and remains natural looking as if it melts into your skin. I would definitely wear this for a special occasion
Date published: 2019-03-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful texture!!! My very favorite face make up. So easy to apply and once you do, it appears that you are not wearing any makeup whatsoever. However, it still manages to even out your skin imperfections.
Date published: 2019-03-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice foundation I have been using this for about a month, and love it. The only thing is I ended up picking a shade (online, which is difficult) that is a tad too light. When I run out of this I will get the next shade darker. But the finish is quite nice.
Date published: 2019-03-01
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not sure it’s luminous I ordered one and you sent and charged me for two. The color is one shade too isn’t and I have to mix it with moisturizer. It’s too dry and I have very good skin, so I’m a bit disappointed. I don’t have time to return the extra bottle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dewy Skin I love this luminous silk foundation. I only wish that it had spf protection. It really brightens my skin!
Date published: 2019-02-17
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love love love I bought this a few weeks ago and I had the biggest buyer's remorse when I did but when I got it and used it. It was one of the best foundations ever! I don't like super full coverage simply because I have dry skin but this foundation is buildable without giving me cake face. I went with the shade 7.5 and it matched perfect. I can't say enough good things. I love it and I'll definitely be purchasing it again....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect I love this foundation! I was using tinted moisturizer but felt i needed something different lately and this is perfect.

Is the luminous silk foundation non comedogenic

Asked by: Sarah
Hi Sarah! We appreciate your interest in the Luminous Silk Foundation. The term non-comedogenic indicates that the product has a low potential for clogging pores. The presence or absence of oil in a product does not mean a product will or will not be non-comedogenic. Not all products are tested for non-comedogenicity. If the non-comedogenic claim does not appear on the product, it is not an indication the product is comedogenic. We hope this information helped!
