Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worth it I bought it a month ago and i have to say that it is the best so far..very easy to find the right colour and coverage is great as well. 4 star simply because I still have to apply a bit of almond oil on my face to make it stay smooth as I do have very dry skin. But with this trick it won’t go away and it stays really good on the face.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best foundation ever Perfect for my sensitive skin. I have rosacea and this foundation blurs all redness but with extremely light coverage

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Excellent product, well worth the price. This was for my daughter & she absolutely loves it!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not blown away like I was hoping to be I really wanted to love but think I’ll have to settle for like. Doesn’t have the staying power I’d hoped for, especially compared to other high-end brands I’ve tried. Starts to get “cakey” after about 1/2 day. I made the mistake of trying to color match online, clearly that’s on me. This was a splurge for me, don’t think I will re-purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surpasses other brands I have spent a ton of money searching for the perfect make up for my skin. A foundation that doesn’t set into the lines in your face or make you look older than without make up has been a chore. This foundation surpasses others. My skin looks amazing finally. I have been recommending Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk to all my clients.

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!
