Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I love this product. Perfect blend for my skin tone I can barely feel it. Please continue with producing the colours you have. I haven’t been able to find the perfect shade till now.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best I have been using this for years. It is perfect just enough coverage to decrease imperfections in my aging skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This foundation really is silky smooth ! This foundation is beautiful . It goes on smoothly and always evenly and matches your skin tone perfectly. I have tried many foundations and this one is def one of the best.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best foundation This will be my new go to foundation. Went on so nice using a blender sponge. Not cakey or ashy on my warm caramel skin. Purchased No. 8.75 which is a perfect match. Love it and happy to see matching foundations for women of color. Beautiful packaging.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Foundation Ever! I was giving you this as a gift. However, now I’m a customer for life! As a 61 year old woman, Foundation really matters - people keep asking me what I have done to make my skin look so good!
Date published: 2019-07-21
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst foundation I have ever tried This is the worst foundation I have ever tried, it does nothing for any coverage what so ever. It’s like I put nothing on my face. So disappointing bc of the name brand you expect a quality product and this is so far from that. Luckily I only bought a travel size so I wasted half the price of a regular sized bottle but it’s still such s let down. I have normal skin with a bit of rosacea on my cheeks but this forced virtually nothing. The thinnest foundation I’ve ever tried. Not worth price or hype.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for me! I have finally found a foundation that I love. Beautiful coverage and long wearing. It all started with a sample from Neiman Marcus. Had to have more!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Natural I use the Luminous Silk Foundation in the summer. Very light. I will mix the Power Fabric and the Luminous Silk Foundation for a special occasion and winter time for more coverage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Luminous Silk Foundation I have used this product for several years and love it. It is easy to apply, stays on for the day and is light on my skin. I recommend it to everyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Foundation This is my 2nd bottle of luminous silk foundation. Both are travel size. I keep one in my travel bag. You don't need the bigger bottle as a little goes a long way. It is not heavy on the face. I love it!
Date published: 2019-06-16
Rated 4 out of 5 by from good for dry skin I enjoy this foundation. I have dry skin and this does not feel oily or heavy. This also does not cake on the skin. I do not use a primer with this, fyi. I enjoy this foundation and have no complaints.
Date published: 2019-06-16
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Travel Size I bought the travel size foundation on line and the texture & color of the foundation was slightly different that my full size foundation.
