If I would get a penny for each glowing review on the Armani Luminous Silk foundation, I’d be a very, very wealthy lady. After a year of teasing myself, I finally bit the bullet and just went for it (the fact that I still had some credit left on a gift card may have helped a bit as well).
Without boring you with the details that everyone has already written about, yada yada yada, let me recap the foundation in just four words: Luminous. Silk. Is. Bloody. Amazing. Oops, that was five, but still, you get what I mean. As a foundation-gal, I take my bases very seriously. Having suffered with acne with most of my life (so far), I need that bit of coverage to feel good and confident about myself. And I’ve found Armani Luminous Silk to be a product that just ticks all the boxes, and doesn’t make you look like you’ve got a ton on your face.
It’s definitely a medium to full coverage foundation and for the coverage it gives you, it feels very lightweight on the skin. Actually, I’ll go as far to say that I actually forgot that I wore it —yes, it was that light. Because it’s so light, it’s very easy to build up the coverage without looking like you’re attending a cake-fest (the one you’d rather not attend).
What else can I say about this… It’s definitely an investment, but you get a bang for your buck. The shade range is a bit weird, so I definitely would recommend checking the product in person and getting shade matched. At the time when I bought it, I got matched to shade 4, which would be my perfect late-Autumn/Winter/Spring shade. Oh, right. I completely forgot to mention the best part of the foundation: it’s SPF free, baby! Meaning, no more crazy-white-ghost-face pictures for me anymore. Bring on the flash photography!
