Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Matches my skin tone - does not look cakey and does not fade throughout the day.
Date published: 2019-10-10
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exquisite THIS IS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL FOUNDATION IN THE WORLD. I started using in 2014 and people stop me all the time you have the most beautiful skin. I said not bad to be almost 63 with no work done on my face or filters or fillers I said I have to say Armani made this face. I can’t be without it and I have sold so many bottles for Armani. It helped as I had my own beauty show each week in my state on CBS THEN WARNER BROTHERS PLUS MODEL. Go to the store and try on and remember foundation gets darker as the day wears on. So you want 2-3 samples made up for you before you choose. Do not be afraid of the price as you do not add a lot and the foundation is our canvas to our face. If you can splurge and only have the money for The foundation please make the investment as our foundation is our canvas of our face. It does not take much and it wears beautiful. I have tried them all. It’s just a must as not everyone is born gorgeous but with Armani foundation you will be beautiful. Victoria/Bella THE BEAUTY MAVEN est.1996

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the splurge This is my favorite foundation. It has a light texture and is easily layered. The coverage is perfect. Color matches my skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I love this product. Perfect blend for my skin tone I can barely feel it. Please continue with producing the colours you have. I haven’t been able to find the perfect shade till now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flawless porcelain skin with this foundation This is the best foundation on the market. My skin always looks flawless with it on.
Date published: 2019-09-14
Rated 3 out of 5 by from A Little Disappointing This foundation is not as creamy as I like and it feels dry on my skin. The finish is less luminous and more matte than I like. Do you have another product that would meet my expectations in those areas?
Date published: 2019-09-12
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Light foundation that feels nice. Nothing heavy about it. Lasts most of my 12 hour work shift and I really like it. I also like to mix the fluid sheer with it for a nice glow.
Date published: 2019-09-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Literally the Only Foundation I Use I’ve been using luminous silk since I was 19 (I’m 26 now) and I try new foundations all the time but I constantly come back to this. It’s perfectly buildable, medium coverage. I use shade 7 and it’s a perfect neutral tan. Mixes well with sunscreen if I want light coverage for the gym or something. Is amazing for when my skin is perfect and when I have some texture. Can’t recommend it enough.
Date published: 2019-09-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing foundation My sensitive skin loves this foundation and so do I. It goes on easily and will automatically settle into my face to create a flawless glow. I wish I’d found this years ago.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Natural Sheer Foundation Yes I love this foundation so much this has become my everyday go-to product. It's just so natural so lightweight, with a beautiful glow, and looks like my real skin. It also looks great for taking selfie photos. Just so great! This is water-based so it's best to go with a water-based primer as well as the power fabric concealer. Thank you Armani!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great makeup! I love it because it looks good and stay on all day. It is not oily.
Date published: 2019-08-30
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Luminous Silky Goodness It is a great foundation no doubt but with my combination/oily skin, it isn’t like 100% the best foundation for me... but having said that, with the ideal powder and prep primer to go along with this foundation, you’ll definitely have a winner that gives that professional makeup look. I would still recommend this foundation because out of all the foundations I’ve tried from high-end to drug store, this one has pleased me the most.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It really does work! I absolutely love this foundation. It goes on so smoothly and makes my skin feel great.
Date published: 2019-08-23
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite Foundation I do not understand the negative reviews for this product. It is the only foundation I have used for the past 3+ years. It makes my 63 year young skin look flawless, does not clog pores and blends seemlessly. I have sensitive skin and many things break me out. Not this. I also have the powder foundation for touch ups on the go. As a new retiree that now needs to watch her budget, this is something I will still splurge on.
Date published: 2019-08-13
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best I have been using this for years. It is perfect just enough coverage to decrease imperfections in my aging skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best foundation This will be my new go to foundation. Went on so nice using a blender sponge. Not cakey or ashy on my warm caramel skin. Purchased No. 8.75 which is a perfect match. Love it and happy to see matching foundations for women of color. Beautiful packaging.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Foundation Ever! I was giving you this as a gift. However, now I’m a customer for life! As a 61 year old woman, Foundation really matters - people keep asking me what I have done to make my skin look so good!
Date published: 2019-07-21
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst foundation I have ever tried This is the worst foundation I have ever tried, it does nothing for any coverage what so ever. It’s like I put nothing on my face. So disappointing bc of the name brand you expect a quality product and this is so far from that. Luckily I only bought a travel size so I wasted half the price of a regular sized bottle but it’s still such s let down. I have normal skin with a bit of rosacea on my cheeks but this forced virtually nothing. The thinnest foundation I’ve ever tried. Not worth price or hype.

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!

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!
