My favorite and a total classic is Giorgio Armani @Luminous Silk Foundation. It’s pricey but lasts and definitely worth it in my opinion. It’s medium coverage and applies flawlessly and leaves The most gorgeous luminous finish. I’ve tried countless other foundations but I always come back to this one.

This is like the only foundation brand that matches my skin color perfectly, doesn’t separate on my dry nose/Accentuate my dry patches, and doesn’t crease around my mouth

Nearly my HG

I say nearly only because even the lightest shade is a little too dark for my very fair skin. I can make it work, but I have to be careful to take it down my neck and bronze my chest but this foundation is actually worth going through all that trouble for now, come summer I don't expect it to be an issue. Onto what I love about it though--everything! The thin fluid texture feels like nothing on the skin, it has a perfect medium coverage (I prefer to use concealer for problem areas vs. having a mask face), and looks like nearly nothing on the skin--SO skin like! I have extremely combination oily/dry skin with dry patches and this actually makes the dry patches invisible without making the oily parts look shiny any sooner than they normally would. It's actually rather amazing. It looks gorgeous and skin like when freshly applied, is easily buildable, and the most impressive part was that I found it looked just as good 10+ hours later! I do usually use a primer, but even switching up primers this foundation lasted just as long--and I've never had a foundation look as good at the end of a long day as this one does. As for the "luminous" finish--I think that's a bit of an exaggeration. I would say it is a satin finish, not at all flat, but also in no way dewy. I do powder this foundation in my t-zone where I tend to get oily, but it doesn't seem to compromise the skin-like satin finish. I love that it comes with a pump, and that the lightest shade (2) is yellow based as often times the lightest shades are pink based. I just wish they made a neutral or yellow based shade 1 for us super fair ladies. I will say that if you're looking for very full coverage you certainly can layer this without looking cakey, but you'll have to use a lot (I use 2-3 pumps for medium coverage) and you'll probably go through the bottle faster than you like. Obviously the price is very steep, but I just haven't found anything I like nearly as much (and I've tried A LOT). I plan to save it for bad skin days/days I need extra confidence, and special occasions. « less

Not worth it unless you have great skin already

Product: 6/10 Colour: 4/10 Not the best shade range Blendability: 8/10 Coverage: Medium, slightly build-able Finish: Demi Mate Price: 3/10 Packaging 10/10 I really wanted to like this product because everyone absolutely raves about it but it was NOT for my skin. This is my review for dry skin, slightly acne prone slightly texture skin. The colour on my skin was wack, I have light skin with rosy undertones but this looked like white out on my face.The next shade with my proper undertone was for medium skin. Foundation blends pretty good but come on its medium coverage, how thick can it be if its mostly water, alcohol denant and cyclopentasiloxane Coverage was disappointing if im using a 70$ foundation i want it to cover at least some of my redness and dont want to have to use multiple layers. The finish is what threw me for the biggest loop, i know some brand like Nars will have foundation names that suggest quite dewy but are more mate or satin but this was medium coverage marketed as luminous so i thought it would have a bit more of a wet look. nope looked quite powdery and drying on the skin Price is expected for a prestige brand but the value isn't there because of the need to build. The packaging is vanity candy though,it just says i'm boujee Overall i'm disappointed and quite surprised because of all the hype, would probably work best for someone who uses a brush for their foundation ( I used hands and brush and brush looks best ) I'd be wary to us with a sponge because its watery and again this is $70 foundation that needs to be build a bit so you'd want all the coverage you can get. I'd suggest this for someone with more normalized oil levels which already has quite smooth skin and little acne and discoloration. The BEST way i got this to work is by mixing some facial oil in to counteract the mattifying effect, spot conceal redness and imperfections with a concealer either before or after and stipple on a layer concentrating on center of face.

This Foundation is fantastic

I want to start by saying thank you to Giorgio Armani and influenced her for allowing me to participate and this review campaign. Well I was given this product to review my opinions are my own. I must say straight from the gate I love the complexity of this Foundation the color is unlike something I've ever seen with my particular undertone there only a few Brands I can go to without having to adjust the formula more cool or less warm. But this Foundation was the perfect match to my undertone. If you take this foundation and you spray it with a bit of water you see the green pigment. My particular golden tone has green and this Foundation caters to that. Whoever formulated these colors really understand skin. Next let's talk about how this Foundation looks on the skin the skin just looks like skin it's amazing it Blends well with a brush or a beauty blender and I made sure to try this product several times before I gave her review I received this product last week but I wanted to make sure I did my due diligence working this product. I found this product to be a team player she works well with other products and does what she supposed to do. The first day I tried I wouldn't for a sheer coverage a coverage that I prefer I don't have too much discoloration and the small discoloration I do have I can touch conceal but I like for my skin to radiate. The second time I used to starvation I bulked up the coverage with two drops instead of one like the first day. Also if you need to lightly rehydrate Andre blend if you need to adjust for your personal skin tone this Foundation is very forgiving in that manner. When I look for a foundation I look for performance color ease of use and longevity. This Foundation satisfies all of those requirements. I'm not a full coverage girl so I'm not particularly looking for full coverage but you most certainly build the coverage with this Foundation. This will be my new go-to now that prescriptives custom blend is no longer in the mall « less

Hello! I have combination to oily skin and currently use the @Pro Filt'r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation but my skin got flakier when I started applying my foundation. Could it be because of the foundation or because of my acne medication which includes tretinoin, a retin a, has been drying my skin out a lot? Also, can I please get suggestions on primers, setting sprays, concealers, powders to use after concealer, and foundation? Thank you!

Hi! I have dry skin and I tried this foundation (before the hydrating formula came out) and I hated it. Like I don’t think a foundation has ever looked so bad on my skin before LOL. That said, your acne treatments could be making your skin drier and then having a matte finish foundation probably is just exacerbating the condition. Maybe try the hydrating formula of the fenty?? I use a hydrating one from Giorgio Armani and it’s kinda pricey but, buildable and not cakey!
