Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous Great coverage lasts for hours even without a primer. Good color range. Blendable and buildable. Nothing I’ve tried looks as good at the end of a 20hour work day. The bottle size is good for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Phenomenal!! I don’t know why I am new to this product. I wish I would have discovered it earlier because it is literally the beat foundation ever. However, I can only order online because the closest store is about 4 hours away. The first time I ordered it a few shades too dark, so I had to order another super light one so I can mix them. I wish there was a closer store :(

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Good foundation, bad purchase experience Great foundation, decided to purchase two since the deal was great, free samples + 20% off. Well, package arrived with no foundation but only samples. I have emailed customer service, waiting for a reply. The company really needs to do a better job in checking the items before mailing out. Really unprofessional.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nothing Else Comes Close I’m in my 70s and want serious coverage but not a matte finish. I get a wonderful result by mixing Power Fabric and Luminous Silk. Thanks, Armani!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best ever Love, love, love this foundation. Perfect color match, stays on most of the day. Doesn’t aggravate my red, sensitive areas, but covers them nicely

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 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.
Date published: 2019-11-06
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!
Date published: 2019-11-05
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exquisite THIS IS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL FOUNDATION IN THE WORLD. I started using in 2014 and people stop me all the time you have the most beautiful skin. I said not bad to be almost 63 with no work done on my face or filters or fillers I said I have to say Armani made this face. I can’t be without it and I have sold so many bottles for Armani. It helped as I had my own beauty show each week in my state on CBS THEN WARNER BROTHERS PLUS MODEL. Go to the store and try on and remember foundation gets darker as the day wears on. So you want 2-3 samples made up for you before you choose. Do not be afraid of the price as you do not add a lot and the foundation is our canvas to our face. If you can splurge and only have the money for The foundation please make the investment as our foundation is our canvas of our face. It does not take much and it wears beautiful. I have tried them all. It’s just a must as not everyone is born gorgeous but with Armani foundation you will be beautiful. Victoria/Bella THE BEAUTY MAVEN est.1996

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the splurge This is my favorite foundation. It has a light texture and is easily layered. The coverage is perfect. Color matches my skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flawless porcelain skin with this foundation This is the best foundation on the market. My skin always looks flawless with it on.
Date published: 2019-09-14
Rated 3 out of 5 by from A Little Disappointing This foundation is not as creamy as I like and it feels dry on my skin. The finish is less luminous and more matte than I like. Do you have another product that would meet my expectations in those areas?
Date published: 2019-09-12
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Light foundation that feels nice. Nothing heavy about it. Lasts most of my 12 hour work shift and I really like it. I also like to mix the fluid sheer with it for a nice glow.
Date published: 2019-09-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Literally the Only Foundation I Use I’ve been using luminous silk since I was 19 (I’m 26 now) and I try new foundations all the time but I constantly come back to this. It’s perfectly buildable, medium coverage. I use shade 7 and it’s a perfect neutral tan. Mixes well with sunscreen if I want light coverage for the gym or something. Is amazing for when my skin is perfect and when I have some texture. Can’t recommend it enough.
Date published: 2019-09-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing foundation My sensitive skin loves this foundation and so do I. It goes on easily and will automatically settle into my face to create a flawless glow. I wish I’d found this years ago.
Date published: 2019-09-01
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Natural Sheer Foundation Yes I love this foundation so much this has become my everyday go-to product. It's just so natural so lightweight, with a beautiful glow, and looks like my real skin. It also looks great for taking selfie photos. Just so great! This is water-based so it's best to go with a water-based primer as well as the power fabric concealer. Thank you Armani!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great makeup! I love it because it looks good and stay on all day. It is not oily.
Date published: 2019-08-30
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Luminous Silky Goodness It is a great foundation no doubt but with my combination/oily skin, it isn’t like 100% the best foundation for me... but having said that, with the ideal powder and prep primer to go along with this foundation, you’ll definitely have a winner that gives that professional makeup look. I would still recommend this foundation because out of all the foundations I’ve tried from high-end to drug store, this one has pleased me the most.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It really does work! I absolutely love this foundation. It goes on so smoothly and makes my skin feel great.
Date published: 2019-08-23
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite Foundation I do not understand the negative reviews for this product. It is the only foundation I have used for the past 3+ years. It makes my 63 year young skin look flawless, does not clog pores and blends seemlessly. I have sensitive skin and many things break me out. Not this. I also have the powder foundation for touch ups on the go. As a new retiree that now needs to watch her budget, this is something I will still splurge on.
