Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great coverage with natural finish I received this foundation as a free sample and I have been loving it! It's a great long wearing formula that gives a nice natural finish while providing enough coverage. It is definitely pricey but worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from HOLY GRAIL FOR DRY SKIN Luminous Silk Foundation is definitely a great splurge item. It is lightweight, but it provides an amazing coverage that lasts all day without looking all CAKEY. I have received many compliments when I use this foundation, it has a beautiful glow to it without looking overly dewy. This is my new go to foundation !!! I received this product for free for testing purposes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Like it alot Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation Thank you #influenster and #giorgioarmani for the complimentary foundation. I dont love it. But I dont hate it. The packaging is awsome, I love the way the foundation goes on my face so silky. But then it dries really fast and I cant spread it all around. I have found that if you do an area at a time is best and it's an all day foundation. Besides the drying fast i have no issues its stays on for a long period of time. Being outside all day in a hot weather and not smearing or getting oily. Only that some time I'm in a rush and dont have the time to do one area at a time and making it seven. Everything else is just fine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just like skin! I received this foundation complimentary for testing purposes, but I will 100% buy this again in my correct shade. This is literally like a second skin. It feels like lotion on the skin and it smells so good! Can’t wait until I get my proper shade for the winter because 13.5 is a tad too red for my skin tone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lightweight feel I must say I was a little apprehensive when I got this but I quickly amazed by it. The matching to skin tone, the coverage and the lightweight feel made me fall in love. I tried it on a night I knew I would be out and about and it proved to stay in place and last throughout the night! I was truly amazed at how light it felt on my face and the coverage it gave. Thanks Influenster for sending me this complimentary product to try and review! It's definitely going to be added to my makeup collection!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Oily skin tested ? This foundation is perfect for dry skin type, it will work with oily skin with a matte primer underneath, this foundation comes in a matte glass bottle and it includes a pump. It is very lightweight and has buildable coverage, I love it. And I am happy I got to try this foundation. I received this complimentary for testing purposes.
