Giorgio Armani Beauty Face Fabric Foundation
Liquid foundation with light buildable coverage and a mousse to powder matte finish.
Face Fabric blurs pores and imperfections with a natural matte finish. At first touch, the formula is a soft mousse, but as the foundation spreads across the skin it melts into a powder. Face Fabric has a second skin fit due to its 3D stretch tehnology which allows the formula to move with your skin leaving the complexion retexturized and smooth.

When I first went to apply this product to my face, I'm not going to lie, I thought I was going to hate it. That being said, I was looking super close at my face and all I could see was the powdery finish coming along. That being said, when I pulled the mirror back and looked at it from a normal view it looked a lot better. All of my other products applied so smoothly overtop of this product and I was feeling really happy with how it was looking. But then, I did the final touch of adding my facial mist and my skin looked BEAUTIFUL! I think that's really the key is to set your skin with a mist or setting spray so that all the powder can melt into your skin.
Actually, this product just kept looking better and better as the day went on and my natural oils started to come through. I was able to blot with no problem, makeup stayed in place.
Final thoughts to the point: If you're a full coverage only kind of person, I would pass. If you like a more fresh/natural look frequently or from time to time- this is a great product. If you have dry skin- moisturize well before applying. Wears well through the day- doesn't come off when blotting. If you're interested, I would check it out. Not to say there aren't dupes at the drugstore but still, this is nice!
**I did receive this product complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.
It is exactly what I had been looking for. It is a step up
from BB and CC Creams. The part I don’t like about BB Creams or CC Creams is
the oiliness or slick of them and how they don’t last. But I love the look of
them when you first apply. Well Face Fabric looks like aBB or CC Creams and
lasts and lasts and it’s so breathable and really looks like skin! A light
foundation for everyday use with a matte finish. It is absolutely easy to
apply, it’s has made my morning routine – easy breezy. No more sponges or
brushes. All I do is after my morning routine (serums, moisturizers and SPF), I
put this on, with my fingers and voîla, out the door! You don’t need a setting
powder, but for the first few days I still used one as I was so used to having
to use one and it still looked great. But it does have it’s own powder finish. I
will say it never builds up to a full coverage but I definitely recommend it
for everyday use if you are looking for that BB cream/ flawless finish type of
look. It won’t be my favorite for special events when I want full coverage but
it is my new favorite for daily wear! I received this foundation from
Influenster for a honest review and I was honest!
Consistency/coverage: The foundation is a creamy consistency that turns into a powder finish. About a quarter size dollop is enough for coverage. The foundation provides a light to medium coverage, much more lighter than what I normally use. Even with concealer, the foundation is not enough to cover all my blemishes nor evens out my skin tone. The foundation is buildable, but I did not try to attempt for full coverage. It dries to a demi-matte finish.
Application: I used one of my Morphe brushes to apply the foundation. When using the brush, the foundation was easy to apply evenly and did not streak. However, the foundation quickly blends to a powder finish quickly.
Color: I received shade 3.5 (light with warm undertone) and the foundation was surprisingly a perfect match. I have olive tone skin with golden undertone and usually use a medium toned foundation. The color blended well with my natural skin tone.
Lasting power: Under normal wear, the foundation lasts about 8 hours before a touch up is necessary and before patchiness occurs. I have combo/oily skin so it does an okay job controlling shine. The foundation reminds me of the bareminerals original powder foundation finish and lasting power.
Price: At $49, this foundation falls in the price category of higher end luxury brands and much more pricey. Considering this is a Giorgio Armani product, the price is to be expected.
Overall, I would recommend this product for someone who’s looking for a powder finish foundation, but likes the application of a liquid. It’s a good foundation, but not my holy grail. I like it enough to use the rest of the foundation, but not enough to buy a refill once I’m out.
It is definitely light coverage, as you can see in my photo (before is left and after is on the right, it really just smoothed my face and looks like I used a filter).
I will say though that I dropped one star because this is not dry skin friendly. Any dry patches or bumps will be accentuated and look rather noticeable and bad. As long as you keep yourself well moisturized, you will like this product.
Oh for reference, right now I am shade Santa Fe in Nars, and the shade 3.5 in this foundation works, however I think shade 2 might work a tad better.
