Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best foundation I've ever used! I had read for years that makeup artists swore by thus foundation but it wasn't until I was getting re-married that I finally ordered a bottle, after trying a few samples for color. I'm very fair and although #2 the tint I use Is more yellow based, it's The lightest shade and helps even out my red and pink undermines without looking heavy or made up. It's just light and sheer enough, while adding the right amount of coverage. Ideal for those of us with freckles thatvwish a more natural look, while camouflaging imperfection! Also you dint need much to cover. My old bottle was almost 9 years old. Can't say enough about this product,

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Foundation I have ever used!! This is seriously the best foundation I have ever used. I was a bit skeptical at first after watching all the reviews on YouTube. I went to Nordstrom to get color matched and it looked AMAZING. I used to only use Make up Forever water blend foundation but now this is my go to. It doesn't look cakey at all, it looks so natural and beautiful. I absolutely love this foundation. Definitely worth the money!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Liquid Foundation Unlike Any Other I had been using powder foundation for years due to my oily complexion. Every time I would try a liquid, I would look like I covered my face in oil and grease! I had come to terms with the fact that my face simply would never be suited for liquid foundation and that I would never accomplish that smooth seamless makeup effect. Once I tried this foundation, I've never looked back. It was so easy figuring out which shade I was, I was able to do it online and get it right the first time. The color stays all day and doesn't run or get patchy, despite my oil! I'm am Armani girl now and forever!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from OMG! Thank You! Thank you, thank you, thank you! I have been using Armani Luminous Silk for about 10 years now and I love it more than any other brand out there. I have been using the 8.5 which was the closets shade but it had an orange hue to it. I would have to use a setting powder to kind of alter the color. My whole world changed when the company introduces 8.75. Omg, this is the best thing ever! I love the way Luminous Silk applies and wears on my face so there was no way I was switching brands. 8.75 is my perfect shade, its 8.5 without the orange tint. I love it! Even did a happy dance with my girls LOL. Thank you so much for creating this shade, I've been waiting for years!
