Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only the BEST! Like no other! I bought this foundation Jan. 11, 2019. I was previously using Bobbi Brown Luminous foundation for the past 2 years. I researched Armani Luminous and it looked great and had exemplary reviews so I went ahead and got matched and started using it. If anyone is out there wanting to change or looking for the best foundation just do it! But this foundation, it blows away everything else. I love it and it doesn't compare to anything else. Enjoy! You'll look fantastic and see the immediate changes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Foundation I used to use luminous silk then changed to power fabric, which I loved. But when my skin was dry, it was somewhat hard to apply. So I tried to go back to luminous silk—it seemed like putting on dyed water in comparison, but since I’m older, I need more coverage. Both are great products but for me, I will try to keep my face moisturized so that I can use power fabric.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb I bought it about 3 weeks back as I had heard and read a lot about it. I must say its simply amazing and gives this soft glow to my face. Just loved it and would like to try other Armani cosmetics and see how they are:)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfection I bought this product after vigorously searching for a lightweight foundation that also made my skin glow. I was definitely skeptical with the price, but I must say I will never go back to another foundation. I don’t even feel like I am even wearing make up, and a little goes a long way. I was truly aiming for the “no make up” make up look, and this foundation helps me accomplish that beautiful natural complexion. It provides enough coverage without hiding my freckles! It also doesn’t dry out my skin, which I can sometimes have problems with. I’m very impressed and I can’t wait to try other products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Giorgio Armani. Luminous Silk Foundation I have been using this product for several years. I have freckles and very dry skin. It goes on very smoothly, sheer but covers imperfections well and is great on dry skin. Highly recommend.

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.
