Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great I received this for free. The foundation goes on smooth but should add a couple layers if wishing for full coverage

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Giorgio Armani Silk Foundation I received this as a free sample from Influenster, I’m very happy with how it makes my skin look. Very silky and smooth, buildable coverage. The only thing I wish is that it was Moreno natural ingredients. Other than that I’m very happy with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it I’ve been using this product for about a week I would say and I am I love with it. This has become one of my favorite foundation, I would never thought that I would like it this much i leaves my foundation looking flawless and my skin so smooth and hydrating. I noticed that it has has coverage just not full coverage which is good. It also doesn’t cake my face when I use a powder which is a plus for me. This foundation is pricey but better then all the other pricey brands I’ve used. Thank you Influenster for sending me this for free.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Well I love that is foundation is buildable and moisturizing. It's probably great for combination and dry skin especially. Being oily year round, I a usually go for a more matte finish, but I will add this to my foundation rotation, especially on winter days when I want something fairly sheer. (I don't believe in adding too many layers of foundation, because it makes my face feel heavy on top of all my skin's natural oil.) Overall, I recommend this, but I use a foundation at the same price point that better meets my needs. Also, I received this product free for testing purposes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing!!!! I received this as a complimentary gift from Influenster an this has to be the best foundation it’s literally a second skin!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Luminous silky goodness Initially I was sceptical about trying this foundation because I have extremely oily skin. However once I applied it, the foundation complimented my skin so flawlessly that I instantly started rooting for it. It made the skin look dewy and really silk like. Two pumps were enough for my entire face even though it us a liquid like, medium coverage foundation. The foundation held up nicely for about 10 hours with the usual blotting the T-zone because I usually have an oily T zone. Disclaimer : I received this product from Influenster and Giorgio Armani free for testing and reviewing purposes and this is my honest opinion on the product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best! One of the best foundations on the market! I stayed away because of the price, but after trying it, it is soooooo worth it! Silky on my skin and shade is perfect! *I received a complimentary sample to try from Influenster*

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! I was sent this product complimentary for testing and I am beyond shocked how much I love it!. I have oily skin and this foundation works well on it, it's a buildable formula and makes my skin look flawless and as if I have no make up on. This is my new go to and definitely will be using for now on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not for me but still great and do recommend I recently received this as a free sample from Influenster. Normally, I would not pick a buildable coverage foundation or natural finish, as I need a matte, full coverage. But I was actually really impressed with this! Feels super light on skin, definitely great for anyone with dry skin. The coverage was actually good and it looks super pretty and dewy. I’d stay away from this if you have oily skin, which I do, but I still give it 5 stars because it’s amazing for what it is!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from SUCH A NICE PRODUCT I received this product for free from influenster. I love the packaging, very pleasing aesthetically. I like the pump dispenser!! I got the shade 8.75 and it was a PERFECT match. Not too red, not gray. Perfect. It felt lightweight. I have super oily skin so I did use a mattifying primer before, but it all worked out perfectly. It’s a new fave.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing It’s amzing. It’s very lightweight however the coverage isn’t amazing and it’s smooth on the skin. I received this as a complimentary gift from Influenster you test this product out however I may go out and purchase it Forbes myself after I finish this bottle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best foundation ever! OMG!! Best foundation ever! Seriously one of the best, if not THE best, I've ever used. So lightweight yet full coverage. The color is absolutely spot on, blended perfectly with my skin tone. And it lasted all day! Received this for free to test out and I'm so happy I did!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buildable Coverage. Lightweight Feel. This is by far the best foundation I have tried. This feels awesome on my skin and is very light weight. The finish is beautiful and very skin-like. I was happy to receive this as a gift for testing purposes but I will definitely purchase on my own.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Foundation! I love this product! It’s super lightweight and long lasting. It works well no matter how I apply it. I forgot to use highlighter, and realized that my skin looked really nice still since it gave it this dewey look where I had a natural highlight! Will definitely continue to use this product, and would recommend it to anyone! I received this product free for testing purposes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Silky - Beautiful Finish I've never tried any foundation before by Giorgio Armani but this one is the bomb! I didn't get the right shade but none the less it allowed me to build upon it and lighten it up to give me a beautiful finish! It worked well with my beauty blender and I couldn't have been happier with the end results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Active Things I’m a college cheerleader so when I do makeup for games I typically use foundations that will stay and look great on my skin. Even when I’m sweating. This foundation went on flawlessly without streaking and my felt extremely soft on my skin. I definitely recommend this. I got this product free from Influenster but all opinions are my own.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth every penny! I received this product free from Influenster in exchange for an honest review. Let me just say that after wearing it for the last few days I am in love! It’s very lightweight, but covers well. It’s buildable so you can customize based on your needs for the day. It’s not a matte finish, but also not a greasy or wet look. It feels and looks very natural! Believe me you WILL get your moneys worth. It takes half the amount of my MAC foundation to get the look I want. I really love it! Don’t let the price scare you, it’s worth every penny!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new favorite foundation! I have been wanting to try this foundation for a while now and I am so happy I got the opportunity to do so! I used this foundation with my Real Techniques blender sponge and it worked perfectly! I love the way it evenly finished and it does not create a crease where some foundations tend to do this! I am so happy to say this has to be my new favorite foundation! I did receive this product for testing purposes!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Coverage is so skin like ! Now I've never had such a beautiful foundation ever. Its super light weight and buildable ! Major plus. Also the lay of the foundation is skin like and the color is spot on. Gorgeous products! I received this product for free or complimentary for testing purposes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from wont regret buying this I got this giorgio armani foundation complimentary from influenster for testing and reviewing, i had never tried this before or purchased it. As soon as i applied this foundation it was so light weight so soft and not cakey . it set into like a matte look but still really luminous and made my skin feel super hydrated the whole night it definitely is a buildavle foundation that wont make you feel like a heavy face . i forgot i even had anything on! i am definitely going to keep purchasing this! I Used a Cream based primer before applying this but even without primer if felt so soft and look amazing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Finish I received this complimentary for testing purposes and this will definitely be my go to foundation. It matched perfectly especially with my undertones which is usually hard to find for my darker complexion. I also like that I didn’t have to apply a lot for full coverage. I used a brush to apply which was perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing day or night foundation! I was so pleasantly surprised by this foundation. I have dry/normal skin and I get oily very rarely, but dryness is my main concern so I typically go for dewy, hydrating foundations. This foundation did not disappoint and lived up to its name “luminous silk.” I got the color 11.75 and used a buffing brush to apply it. I loved how it glided effortlessly on my skin and felt so light — I hate the feeling of a foundation choking my skin. The coverage was pretty great and buildable too. I have one or two acne scars that need a little extra attention, and this mostly covered them (I supplemented the remaining coverage with my concealer). I also noticed that this has a light, pleasant smell that I’m not used to in foundations. I personally am not opposed to fragrance in things so I enjoy it and definitely prefer it to the chemical smell I sometimes get in other foundations. I love this product and can’t say enough good things and love that I can rock it for work or a night out. — This foundation was sent to me free for review.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful finish! I received this product free for testing purposes, and was so glad I did. What a beautiful foundation. It goes on light but buildable and my skin feels like it can breathe. I usually use cc creams because I like the none makeup look. This provides more coverage but still a fresh, pretty finish. Great product Giorgio Armani!
