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) and didn’t feel like it needed too much powder to set. I pretty much only set my t-zone on this day.
It wore lovely throughout the day too and never looked cakey, I was really impressed! I think that this foundation could work for both dry and oily skin complexions as the formula isn’t to matte or too luminous! For an oily skin type I would advise you prep your skin 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!
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!
As of right now I’ve no regrets in buying the Armani luminous silk foundation! I’d love to hear your thoughts about it too, so please if you have tried it please share in the comments?!
Until next time,
Much love, Lisa
