Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing I love the lightweight feel, I hate when I feel like I have cake face. And it was buildable without being caky. The feel and look is unbelievably natural I received this product for free/complimentary for testing purposes

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So smooth! Great foundation, especially if you have combination skin. The shade I ordered is a bit to grey for my skin tone, but the texture and the way it evened out my skin tone were both amazing. I received this product for free to review through Influenster.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So light! I received this foundation and I loved how it felt on my skin. It felt so light on my face like if I wasn’t wearing any. I got the wrong color if not I would wear it everyday.
Date published: 2018-11-13
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfortable to wear I’ve been using this daily for a few weeks now and it’s great for daily use at work or for building up the coverage for special events. I only need a tiny amount for daily use when going to work. And then for fuller coverage I added bother two pumps and wow the coverage is insane! The formula is also very comfortable for being so full coverage. I received this product free for review purposes but my review is 100% genuine

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it Absolutely Loved This Product I have Never used a prodigy like this before I’m more of a drug store shopper so when I received this foundation I didn’t know what to think I was shook to see how amazing the coverage is An how long it lasted when I applied it an hours later to see it was still flawless over all loved it!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Complimentary for Testing I am absolutely in love!! This is such a great light weight, natural looking foundation. It gives great coverage, but yet still remains natural looking. I received this product for free from Influenster to test and oh boy am I glad they sent this. Definitely recommend to anyone!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Smooth coverage Influenster sent me this product to review, I had to tone the shade down with my everyday foundation to be able to wear the shade they sent, but the texture and coverage of this foundation is amazing and I'll be using it full blast this summer when I'm tan.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from my favorite foundation I received this complementary product for testing purposes thanks to my VoxBox of influenster and Giorgio Armani. I have been trying out a lot of foundations recently and this one is amazing. I find that this foundation looks best when applied with a brush and buffed into the skin. It is a medium coverage but buildable to full if desired. It doesn’t look cakey or flat on the skin. It has a nice satin finish and is indeed luminous. It gives the skin a healthy glow, it doesn’t look at all oily or greasy though. It lasts well throughout the day, not separating, fading or transferring. It lasts well through heat, humidity and sweat also which is a bonus if you live in a hot climate! I love how this looks and feels on my skin. The only downside is the price, it is $64USD. However, if you have the money to invest in this product I would highly recommend it! It lives up to its reputation

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My skins new friend I was sent this foundation in a v- box from influenster and all I can say is hallelujah ! This is the best foundation that I've ever had .I normally wear another high end foundation but this is ten times better it gives my skin a smooth matte finish with a slight glow it is not at all drying to the skin and stayed on all day with no retouching. I have been wearing this for a week and receive daily compliments. I would definitely recommend this product even though it is pricier than some foundation it is more than worth it and now will be a staple in my makeup routine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great foundation I have been wearing this foundation for the last 2 week. I recived shade 11 from influencer and it was way too dark but I loved the feel of the formula so I bought shade 8.75 and it was perfect,! Light to medium coverage with a slight glowy finish is my favorite! I wore this foundation for a full shoppimg day and it didnt move or transfer while trying on clothes!! #influencergift

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light-weight, Comfortable to Wear, & Smooth I really enjoyed this foundation. I was sent this product to review but am not paid for my opinion. As a woman of color with dark spots I appreciate this foundation so much. It’s virtually weightless and buildable to full coverage. It did not irritate my skin or cause any issues when wearing it. I will be purchasing this foundation on my own and my color match was perfect.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Influenster This makeup was ok i like full coverage it was not. Its stays on my face all day and it really not bad at all

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great foundation I loved the foundation it did last all day & the color match was great. I usually get oily by mid-day and my nose cracks but not with this foundation. The only thing it has an unpleasant odor. I did receive this product for free for testing purposes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it This product was giving you me as a complimentary gift. It is silky and smooth. Only need a smart layer. Good coverage and it doesn’t have that chemical smell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful foundation but... I received shade 15 to review. I tried it out for a week and although it is a very nice foundation, as far as texture and shade range it just wasn’t a foundation that fit my needs. It did have medium coverage and I didn’t feel the need to build it on my problem areas. It also mixes well with other brands and products. Yes I would recommend this product to someone with dry skin. I received this product complimentary for review purposes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versitility at its finest I’ve made this luxurious foundation a staple of my make-up routine. Being able to control coverage is a game changer! I have unevenly toned skin so being able to get full coverage from one application is fantastic. The pump dispensar ensures that I don’t waste any product which is great considering the price point. I would def recommend as a treat yourself product! I was lucky enough to receive this product complimentary from Influenster.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New foundation. Who’s this I enjoy this foundation so much. I’m looking for this to be my go-to foundation whenever I have somewhere major to go. It’s so smooth and looks flawless. The pump is nice. I really enjoy it currently my favorite of all my foundtaions

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great foundation I have Oily skin and this foundation went on beautifully ! It was light weight and buildable and felt comfortable on my skin - throughout the day I had To blot but it didn’t look too oily or the product didn’t break up on my skin , I recieved this product complimentary from Influenster !
Date published: 2018-11-11
Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEAUTIFUL APPLICATION Best foundation ever! I received this product complimentary from influenster for testing purposes. I enjoyed using this product as it was smooth and could use a foundation brush with it. I generallyhmmm use Fenty's liquid foundation. Both foundations are similar in formula in that they apply excellent coverage. This formula has a luminous, glowing finish on the skin while Fenty has a matte finish. This product has little to no fragrance while Fenty has a strong perfume smell that often lingers hours after application. As far as wear, both products last throughout the day. Fenty had quite a bit oil buildup, which made my face shiny whereas GA did not. If you can afford the splurge, I would definitely go with GA.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks like Skin I got this foundation complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes and I gotta say I was so impressed by this foundation that I will be buying it when I run out. i Ann huge on foundation and I am always trying out new ones and there are 2 thing I look for in a every foundation I get. 1-buildable coverage 2-looks like skin. And this foundation does both for me and on top of that it is sooo lightweight. I truly recommend! I typically like very full coverage and I applied a couple layers to get it to my desired look and it still looks like my fresh skin because it also is the PERFECT match!! I have never seen a foundation that is that perfect match to my skin tone. I am in love!! See the photo of me wearing the foundation and you will see what I mean. This foundation is so worth it and I am so happy I came across it!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Foundation I got this foundation a couple of weeks ago and I live the quilty and the smoothness it's a good foundation but it dies create an orange tone for the darkskins I wish there were more colors more for us milani's and foundation does oxidize a lil for those who want to know I recieve this free from influencers other then the choices of color it's really a good foundation I would say it's mindum coverage

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it!! I received this product to try for free for testing purposes! But is now one of my favorite foundations! Right now it is a shade to dark for my skin but I add a few pumps to my current foundation, and then it’s perfect for winter. I can’t wait to use it full time when it’s warmer. I can wear it now if I use concealer under my eyes and use it more for a contour color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glowing! So In love with this foundation! It’s very lightweight which I always look for in a foundation. And even with buildable coverage it never feels too cakey. The glowing finish is my favorite part, my skin looks so fresh and healthy. Definitely a product I’d be willing to continue using. I received this product for for testing purposes, from Influenster.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the formula! Overall i am very pleased with this product, the formula blends out perfectly without feel cakey. I will say at first it looked a bit ashy on my skin tone but oxidized to a perfect match. received this product for free or complimentary for testing purposes.
Date published: 2018-11-10
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight yet full coverage I love full coverage make up that doesn’t look cakey and this is it. This is my go-to foundation now that I have switched over from another brand and I am loving the more natural look! I received this product for free to test out but I am already planning on buying another bottle when this runs outs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from HOLY GRAIL FOUNDATION!!!!! I am OBSESSED with this Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation. I received it as a complimentary gift from Influenster to test. I could not be happier that this was the product I received. The packaging is beautiful, the box has a glossy look to it and is appealing. I LOVE the bottle itself. It is a glass bottle with a pump, the pump makes it so easy to apply foundation to a beauty blender or a brush. Very convenient. The foundation is lightweight, build-able, has great coverage, & gives off a "luminous" (hence the name of the product) glow all day long. The Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation has great coverage, when used with concealer it covers all of my blemishes, scars, dark circles, uneven skin tone, and redness. I have extremely dry skin, and this foundation is PERFECT for dry skin. It moisturizes your skin and will not make it feel dry & look patchy, like some other foundations will do to my dry skin. I will say, that this foundation does go right into pores, fine lines, wrinkles, etc. So you will absolutely need a good primer. With a great primer, this foundation will make your skin look absolutely flawless. Overall, I absolutely love the Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation and I highly recommend this product. I am so glad I received this FULL SIZE bottle for FREE from Influenster just to write a few reviews! Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing coverage! I love this foundation! The feel of this foundation is so smooth and lightweight. You can build up this foundation for more coverage without it looking cakey on the skin. I really loved how this foundation blended out so nicely with both my beauty blender and a foundation brush. I recieved this foundation from influenster to test out and will definitely be purchasing when the time comes for a new bottle.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from amazing I got this product as a free sample. Probably my new favorite, Its a very easy to build and has a natural/total coverage. im so happy to finally try this foundation. personally i recommend this product, despite the price I think its totally worth it.
Date published: 2018-11-10
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Buildable and beautiful This foundation is very beautiful, easy to wear and buildable to full coverage. Those are the pros. The con, for me, is that there isn’t an exact match for my shade one way or the other and the undertone is categorized in warm, but definitely reads a little more neutral on my skintone. It’s really pretty and if it weren’t for the match factor, this could easily become my everyday foundation! I was sent this complimentary for testing purposes, but would highly recommend purchasing if your match is available!
