Armani Luminous Silk foundation is definitely a cult classic, you can’t help but stumble upon it’s name being mentioned in most highend fashion & beauty magazine’s! Adored by so many, needless to say I was excited to try it for myself!
On first impression I was happy to see that one layer provided a solid medium coverage, don’t ask me why but I always pursumed it would have a light coverage. Although it had a medium coverage it still felt lightweight on my skin.
I started with 2 pumps to begin with & then followed up with maybe two small pumps more. I really liked how it applied (I used a kabuki brush). As I have dry skin I did set my tzone with a loose translucent powder to avoid it breaking down later in the day.
It wore lovely throughout the day but I would say if your very oily you would need to carry blotting papers or a touch up powder.
I think that this foundation is beautiful if you have normal or dry skin as it does have quite a dewy finish. For an oily skin type I would advise you prep your skin well with an oil control lotion first to absorb excess oil and then apply a loose translucent powder to set. Dry skin types might not need powder but play around with it and see what works best for you! If you want an all day matte foundation this doesn’t really provide that.
In the picture’s you can see what it looks like in natural lighting with no edits or filters- I even used my Canon camera to get the most realistic picture. I think it has a lovely coverage without looking to heavy- I personally like when you can see a little skin showing through!
On the right person Armani luminous silk is a stunning foundation! I’d love to hear your thoughts if you have tried it before in the comments?!
Until next time,
Much love, Lisa
