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 Great Product! I started using Giorgio Armani make-up over 15 years ago and I would not use anything else. I love it!

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.

Q&A

Hi! My skin is very light, and it's difficult to find a foundation that would match me. My color is light porcelain, do you think the fair shade would match?

Asked by: Dori
Thank you for your question. Giorgio Armani Beauty recommends Luminous Silk Foundation Shade 1 if you have light skin with neutral undertones. Giorgio Armani Beauty recommends Luminous Silk Foundation Shade 3 if you have fair skin with golden undertones. If these are not the correct shade for you, giorgioarmanibeauty-usa.com offers complimentary returns on all foundations.

Which is the best primer to use with this foundation? 

Asked by: Makeupfiend
Thank you for your question. The best primer to use with Luminous Silk Foundation depends on your skin. Use Maestro UV Makeup Primer if you would like to protect from sun and environment. Use Fluid Master Primer if you have textured skin or large pores. Use Light Master Primer if you have dull skin.
