Review for: Armani Luminous Silk Foundation more...
This is a beautiful foundation. I was drawn to the "luminous" feature that this foundation claims. As I have gotten older I find myself searching out skincare products for my (face) that have a weightless feel and radiant finish. This foundation exceeds both of my wishes!
I used a  Sigma F80 - Flat Kabuki Brush to apply this foundation rather than a  beautyblender original makeup sponge because beauty blender tends to soak up product and with this foundation being so pricey I can't afford to just soak it all into my sponge and not my face.
Happily the f80 was the perfect choice for this application-wise. The formula glides on and blends in like a dream. It does transfer easily onto clothing, which is one thing I don't like about it. It does not feel heavy on my skin and looks incredible in photographs. This foundation absolutely lived up to the hype for me. On it's own it looks incredible and natural. I didn't use primer or other face products underneath this- just used it all on it's own! I used shade 5.5 and while it was a good match I think I could do better at creating a better mix of 2 shades however... that would be way too expensive and for that reason I am sticking with my tried and true current foundation.

Review for: 4.75 Light Rosy, Standard - 30ml more...
This is my holy grail foundation! When I use it on myself or others it blends out flawlessly on the skin. It keeps the skin nice and dewy as well, so you can avoid the matte pancake face. You barely need to highlight with this skin, and I’ve found that liquid highlighters blend beautifully into the foundation. Powders also sit nicely atop of this one. If I could I would have EVERY shade of this foundation so that I could play with shadow and light a bit more.

One thing I will bring up is that this foundation SLIGHTLY oxidizes after wear on the skin. Now it is a very subtle oxidation but it is there. The 4.75 shade turned just a touch pinker on my skin once everything had settled in. I maybe would have purchased a shade with more yellow undertones but I have used my entire bottle and will be purchasing another.

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!

Review for: 10685231002 Number 5 Light Beige 30Ml-1Oz more...
I've heard great things about this foundation and had tried it years ago, but forgot what my opinion was. I sampled it again at Sephora and didn't even bother to finish the sample before I placed an online order. This is my absolute holy Grail foundation. For me, this is perfect. It has a medium-high medium coverage. The term luminous silk couldn't be more fitting, as that is the only way to describe what it looks like on your skin. My fiance said it didn't even look like I was wearing anything. The shade range is great. I wear the shade 5 and have never had a match so perfect. It looks clear, the color is so perfect. This stays on all day, I use a primer to control some slight oil, a setting powder and the cover FX illuminating spray. My new favorite combination for an all day, insanely long lasting, gorgeous and luminous glow.

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.

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

Review for: 2 Fair Neutral, Standard - 30ml more...
I was originally using Christian Dior Forever and everytime I went in to purchase it they were out of my shade. Finally, I decided that I would go ahead and switch brands but knew that I wouldn't be able to settle on anything less than a luxury line. Using a Kabuki brush I began to paint this on my face.. I was worried at first because of how runny it seemed. Nevertheless I am beyond thrilled with the even coverage that this foundation gave me! It covered my redness and my dark circles without seeming to caked on and it didn't dry me out or disrupt the sensitivity of my skin. I will be purchasing this again without a doubt.

Review for: 5 Medium Neutral, Standard - 30ml more...
I found my holy grail foundation.  I am a foundation hoarder basically hehe. I have heard mixed reviews on this foundation, and for me it was a total WIN! I highly recommend if you have combo skin, or dry skin.  If you are REALLY oily, I wouldn't suggest.  This foundation is def medium coverage, and feels SO lightweight goes on so beautifully, and looks like flawless skin! The best part is the makeup application on top of the foundation goes on dreamy! I LOVE this foundation and its worth every penny!

MY FAVORITE FOUNDATION EVER. If you know me, then you know this is all I ever talk about. When I think of makeup, this is what I think of. This foundation is the next best thing, and is very similar to the Too Faced Born This Way. The skin and texture feels amazing once applied, and it's lightweight and medium (buildable) coverage. It feels so smooth like silk on the skin, and doesn't bunch in any spots or cling to dryness. It looks natural, yet it covers well and has a lovely finish. I'm obsessed with this stuff. It's pricey, but to me it's worth it!!!

Review for: 7.5 Tan Warm, Travel - 18ml more...
I can't lie you guys, when I first saw the price of this foundation I was very iffy about purchasing it. I don't exactly suffer from pimples, but more of an uneven texture due to little bumps on my face. When I finally sucked it up and bought this foundation, I knew instantly that I wouldn't regret splurging a bit. My skin appeared completely smooth, in person and in pictures! I applied this using  Beautyblender Pro and it completely blends into my skin. I have tried applying it with a  Morphe M439 Deluxe Buffer brush, but it did look more caked on in my forehead area, so I would go over it with the beauty blender again. All the different highlights, blushes and bronzers I use go perfectly over it! I even try several different primers and the foundation still looks amazing- I am always complimented when I use it!! I would 100% recommend this to someone. I know it is on the expensive side, but it really is worth every penny.

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 have really dry skin and I haven't been able to find a good foundation for my skin. Is this good for dry skin?

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.
