The price tag on this thing hurts me, but I love this foundation. I first experienced its magnificence during a Sephora makeover when the MUA used it on me. I was shine-free throughout the day and I couldn't be happier. I gorged on samples of this foundation for a while because I couldn't get myself to purchase it (I just bought Fenty Beauty's foundation). But after the samples were through, I found myself longing for it, so I took the plunge.

I think I need a better primer (currently alternating between the Smashbox Photo Finish Primer and that pink Tarte primer), and maybe the Tarte peach setting spray that the MUA used on me. Sometimes I'm too oily with these primers. But I still love this foundation! I have acne scars and it doesn't cover them completely, but this isn't something that bothers me. It still does a great job in evening my skin tone and making my skin appear more beautiful than any other foundation has. 

The only downside is I find myself using more foundation with this brand than with other brands. Regardless, everything else is so good so I will definitely buy this again when I'm through!

Review for: 4.5 Light Neutral, Standard - 30ml more...
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.

Review for: 5.5 Medium Neutral, Standard - 30ml more...
I have normal to dry skin and matte foundations dont look good on me. I dont like looking cakey or powdery or look like I have makeup on. I like natural makeup and this is a winner. It was difficult to find my exact shade in this range but this one came close. My forehead is darker than my cheeks and my face is also slightly darker than my body. It would probably match better when I get a little tanner over the summer. This is a medium coverage foundation and the finish is amazing. It looks like natural skin but better. It covers the redness in my cheeks and hides some of my sun spots too. My face feels smooth after applying and it doesnt feel dry or cakey at all. It just feels like skin. This shade is a bit darker but it gives me a nice bronzed glow. I mix it with a yellow tinted foundation to get my perfect match.

Review for: 2 Fair Neutral, Standard - 30ml more...
This foundation from Giorgio Armani is liquid silk in a bottle. My shade is 2 - fair skin with neutral undertone. The lightweight formula includes “micro-fill technology, producing a low-density product that pairs high-impact pigments with weightless texture.”

I would consider the Luminous Silk Foundation to have a light to medium buildable coverage. It can be used by all skin types. The end result is a natural, radiant finish.

Is this foundation a splurge? Yes, but it makes my skin look amazing. Having a great foundation in your beauty arsenal is essential because it serves as the base for the rest of your makeup. As far as luxury brand foundations, I’ve had the best luck with Dior. I love this product so much that I also purchased the Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Powder Foundation. If you feel like treating yourself, I highly recommend this foundation.

Review for: 5.5 Medium Neutral, Travel - 18ml more...
I've tried a lot of foundations in the past 5 years and by far this is my favorite. I usually aim for a medium to full coverage foundation. I've tried Urban Decay Naked, Too Faced, Kat Von D, Makeup Forever, Lancom, Bare Minerals, and a few others. This is my FAVORITE. This is the perfect coverage for me and it feels so natural and light on my face but covers my face without a cake finish. A huge problem I have with other foundations, being medium skin colored, my foundation oxidizes over time and turns orange. I don't wear my foundation everyday so I need a foundation that will last a long time without changing it's color inside the bottle. Giorgio Armani's is worth paying the extra money for the quality and for the time span it lasts for!

There is nothing bad I can say about this foundation! It is my absolutely FAVORITE EVER. Hands down! The coverage is build able which is great for someone who doesn't like to wear to much or who wants a full coverage look. The foundation itself is super light and breathable and doesn't crease on me.  I dont get oily at all (i have dry skin) and the luminous finish doesn't make you look greasy at all! Its the perfect "radiant" look! Plenty of shades to chose from! I also stock this in my professional makeup kit and it lasts all day and Ive never had a complaint!! You wont regret buying this!

Review for: 3 Light Warm , Travel - 18ml more...
I love this foundation, good medium coverage, you can built it as you need, without looking cakey, beautiful velvety texture, perfect match for my skin color, I have used other high end foundations (Chanel and Dior which I also love) and this one has really impressed me. Now, I do have good sking, no acne or deep wrinkles, some enlarged pores but I use a primer and voilà!!! and I like natural looking make up, so this foundation so the is perfect for me. I even got compliments on how good my skin looks!! One downside, it does not have SPF and texture changes on my skin when I put my tinted SPF lotion first so.. I mixing it with a little bit of my Shiseido Tinted SPF lotion before I apply it to my face, so far so good!

Review for: 5.75 Medium Warm, Travel - 18ml, 5.75 Medium Warm, Standard - 30ml more...
Luminous silk has a medium coverage glowy natural looking finish on the skin that is so beautiful. If you want to try it I wouldn't pay full price, use a gift card or wait until the Sephora sales. For the price I don't think I'd repurchase because the shade I have 5.75 is warmer than I'd like on my skin and I find it's so similar to the Too Faced Born This Way foundation but double the price. I'd pick the Too Faced one over this. Blemishes do still show through. I do really like it but I think there are better foundations at lower price points. Lasts a good 8 hours on the skin.

I’ve been trying this foundation for a while so I could give a 100% real review. First at all, it doesn’t work the money. I love this foundation! It’s natural and flawless but there is no coverage, if I’m going to pay 67$ for a foundation, the only thing I’ll expect I’ll be high coverage to be honest, that’s how I think by the way if you have perfect skin and there is nothing that you want to coverage it’s a nice foundation and I totally understand why makeup artists loves this bad boy. Looks amazing on the skin and it’s feels so lightweight but I’m a high coverage kinda girl!

As an avid lover in all things makeup and beauty as well as a self-taught makeup artist, I absolutely LIVE for the Giorgio Armani Beauty Luminous Silk Foundation! It’s extremely light on the face and is a full coverage foundation. I use it on all of my clients and it’s my favorite foundation for myself. All of my clients fell in love with it.

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.
