This foundation is absolutely my holy grail, special occasion, ride or die foundation! It’s easily buildable, and no matter how much coverage my skin needs on a given day, this foundation will hide any blemish without looking cakey. It lasts for my full 8 hour work day and more!

It gives me a glowy, air brushed finish when it sets and it looks like my real skin, even on days when I really have to pack it on! A little does go a long way, so the price tag is fair in my humble opinion.

Honestly, it’s so incredible. I have two shades for summer tans and my winter pale!

One of the best foundations that I have. I prefer the natural skin look. I have acne-prone skin with discoloration, so I always have to cover up with a cream concealer. With so much concealer, your skin can end up looking cakey, so any foundation that makes my skin looks natural, I'm all in. 

I look for foundations that have 1) natural looking finish, 2) enough coverage or buildable so it doesn't take me too long to conceal my dark spots afterwards, and 3) matches my skin color. 

1) The Armani Luminous silk looks very natural on. It doesn't cling to my dry patches as much as other foundations do. It doesn't exaggerate any bumps either. The pigment is very fine so you don't see "mini foundation beads" on your skin. Definitely love the texture!

2)  I do have many discolorations on my skin due to breakout. These are usually on the side of my cheeks. When I first tested this, I was afraid that it would be too thin of a coverage for my need. To my surprise, the coverage is very  decent. The foundation is thin, but buildable, so I apply a thin layer first to give the nice area of my skin that natural-skin look. Then as it dries, I apply another thin layer onto places where I need more coverage. I was amazed at how much of the dark spots it covered. All that was left is to spot-conceal the spots and then whoala! flawless skin!

3) I have olive skin. Most foundations in the U.S are too pink for me, or too yellow. Many times, I end up leaving the house with my face being a different color from my neck (I thought they matched under bathroom light). Shade #6 is very olive. Though it doesn't match my skin perfectly, it's still the best match out of all the foundations I've tried.

I wanted to hate this, and I wanted to love it as well. The price is gasp-inducingly high, but if it ended up being a holy grail foundation, I was willing to pay the money. However, after I had a sample made at Neiman Marcus, all I can say is "meh". With the primer the lady applied at the counter, my face looked absolutely stunning. However, if your foundation is over sixty dollars and can't look amazing without a primer, it's not a great foundation! On subsequent days of use, I never could get the foundation quite right. I tried it with a brush and either didn't get enough on my face or I got too much on, but it never was even across my face no matter how much I blended. The foundation also separated majorly on my forehead, around my nose, and especially on my chin. I actually had white pores and foundation-colored pores in patches throughout the day. I only got one other day of beautiful skin with the foundation, and I'm not sure what I did to make it look so good that day. 

This product seems overrated to me. Definitely not worth that kind of money for my skin type, but maybe it works beautifully on others.

My absolute favorite foundation!! Luminous silk foundation makes my skin look so smooth and beautiful. I have oily skin and this does not separate as other foundations tend to do. If I want lighter coverage or a more natural look I apply with fingers and for more coverage I apply with a brush/beauty blender. It is not cakey and does not settle into my pores. It is more expensive, but it honestly so worth it. Would recommend to everyone.

First of all the 60$ price tag on this foundation is pretty high, lucky I was able to get a sample from my friend. I usually wear Makeup Forever HD for my oily to combinational skin. When trying this product out I really enjoyed the scent, this didn't have a chemical scent like most foundation. I like that it doesn't dry Matte and has a nice natural luminous finish. I definitely recommend wearing a primer, without it the product settles in the pores and fine lines. Also for oily skin like my self may course more oilyness , so definitely wear a really good primer for a better outcome. This foundation is thin, but still buildable. When I applied the first later I let it dry and apply a second layer where I wanted more coverage. if your looking to wear something that isn't heavy on the face and has a natural finish this is definitely your go-to if you're willing to splurge.

I wear the shade 11. This is a very nice lightweight sheer coverage foundation. For the days that I just want to touch up my complexion or am wearing very minimal makeup in general this is the foundation I reach for. I definitely think they could expand the shade range though. 11 is a good depth for me but I need something with golden undertones for it to be perfect.

Review for: 4.25 Light Peachy, Standard - 30ml more...
I treated myself to this for my birthday. There’s a reason why it’s expensive, it’s amazing! I love the silky texture. The color matches me perfectly. It’s great for my combo skin. I use a moisturizing primer beforehand. Its not too matte and not too sheer. It’s lightweight, but gives a lot of coverage. I don’t wear foundation everyday, so this will last me a while. I’m so happy I purchased this.

Review for: 4.5 Light Neutral, Standard - 30ml more...
I am in love with this foundation. I hate that it's so expensive but I understand why it is. It's beautiful on the skin. It's pretty sheer to light coverage (which I like) and just melts into the skin for a flawless look. I like to just use my fingers to apply it and if there are any streaks, I just pat it with a wet beauty sponge but I rarely even have streaks from applying with my fingers. I don't recommend applying with a sponge as it is a very runny formula. Once applied, it leaves just the right amount of shine. It looks so natural. I never look greasy. Just a natural healthy looking glow. I do use a pore filled primer just in my t-zone to be safe and usually only blot once. I always follow up with a loose setting powder and my face looks so smooth and beautiful all day.This is my new favorite foundation.

My favorite foundation - will continue to repurchase. Covers blemishes and discoloration without being heavy. Gives a glow to the skin but doesn’t make the skin look oily. I think it’s great for dry to combo skin types. It’s a very watery consistency which I love. Lasts pretty well throughout the day.

Review for: 9 Deep Neutral, Standard - 30ml more...
So I almost returned this foundation. The finish is beautiful but it would just sink into my pores or fine lines. But I got a good primer that is smoothing and I now I absolutely love it. I tend to only wear it when go out to an event or when I travel but I would totally repurchase. Coverage is medium and the price is a little much but if you want luxe and you got the coin, get it! I forgot to mention that it doesn’t oxides which is nice and it is long wearing!

Is this a full cover foundation? I have very clear skin and although I don't technically need something full coverage, it would be great to get one color for a face match

I've been looking for a new foundation that is medium to full coverage but doesn't look cakey. I was wondering if this is any good? My skin is typically normal but very dry around my nose during the winter.
