I know that for most of you this may seem like quite an old foundation to be reviewing, but as my first beauty blog it had to be an ode to this gorgeous glass bottle full of amazingness that transforms and beautifies you in a way that no other ever can.
Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation has been my go-to foundation for all those special occasions for the past few years! Since the foundation has No SPF, I don’t generally use it as an everyday foundation, but because of the very same reason it photographs beautifully with absolutely no white flashbacks.
Even though it comes with a big price tag the effect this foundation has on the skin makes it completely worth it! It’s a hassle free application, blends instantly since its very lightweight and provides a velvety smooth finish and a very luxurious feeling. It leaves your skin feeling like skin with all its imperfections effortlessly covered leaving behind a dewy and radiant glow. It comes in 21 shades so for a change color matching was a breeze and achieving the perfect match is not a problem for most.
Considering how lightweight this foundation is, it is exceptionally long lasting and keeps your face looking polished and airbrushed for up to 18 hours (the longest I’ve had it on for). The light bouncing quality that most Armani foundations posses blurs and gives anaturally flawless impact which translates in pictures. It has a light to medium coverage that can be layered further for a fuller coverage if required. I personally have combination skin, with an oily T-zone and some occasional dry patches here and there, and this foundation has been perfect for me. It glides over dry patches and even on the T-zone I rarely ever have to use a finishing powder.
Overall, it has been and continues to be my absolute favorite foundation for special occasions and remains unsurpassed in all the qualities it possesses.
