Rated 5 out of 5 by from One and only!!! I absolutely love this foundation! I kept seeing reviews and that it was award winning so I decided to try it! Went to Sephora and bought it and will NEVER use anything else! It is perfect coverage and on my mature skin it goes on flawlessly with my brush!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too Watery Did not like at all. Very "THIN" foundation. Returned it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Luminous silk foundation Love it! One of two foundations I’ve ever used that goes on smoothly and doesn’t feel heavy. I also have sensitive skin and didn’t have any kind of reaction to it! Will definitely buy it again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smooth as silk as the name suggests This foundation is like silk and like wearing nothing at all. Best foundation for my 56 yr old skin and my 25yr old daughter loves it too! Age has no barrier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Ever! This is the loveliest foundation I have ever used! Beautiful look on my (not-too-young) skin. The online color finder was spot on! I have recommended it to my sisters and friends.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from color range could be better I love this foundation. But I wish there was a color slightly neutral, less yellow than 2. It is good for neutralizing redness when it's that yellow but it doesn't match my neck skin so I really have to be careful with blending. Please add more shades!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best buildable foundation - doesn't settle This foundation beats my Dior, Chanel, Bobbi brown foundations. Doesn't settle into lines or pores, lasts through the day, has amazing coverage but also lightweight (HOW?!?!) and just makes your skin feel like the name suggests - silk. I kid you not. One warning, the colors as shown on the models faces are more accurate than the swatch or color of the bottle. I originally ordered #3 based on the color swatch, but it was much lighter than I expected. It will work for winter months but am getting 4.5 for anytime I get some sun.

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!
