Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation

This might be a bold statement but the Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation might just be my favourite foundation EVER. It’s been on my radar for around a year and everyone who has had the pleasure of trying it has sung it’s praises. Seeing as I don’t have a Giorgio Armani counter anywhere near me it isn’t something I’ve ever been tempted by and until now it’s stayed as a luxury item on my wishlist.

The first morning I applied Luminous Silk I didn’t really know what to expect, it was sort of a purchase I knew I wanted but actually didn’t know much about. After my usual skin care routine I applied it all over with a beauty blender in natural light. I genuinely couldn’t believe just how perfecting yet seamless it was. My skin after two pumps was totally evened out with the most natural fresh faced, healthy glow.

Now the coverage totally surprised me as it was neither full or light but sort of comfortably in between. It covered pretty much everything but didn’t actually look like I had much on my skin at all and felt super breathable once set. It seemed natural to apply a bit of concealer over any stubborn scars but after that I kept it really simple and didn’t even bother with a powder. My skin is really dehydrated at the moment but this foundation gave no signs of that at all.

The winning point for me, as well as the reason I think the Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk foundation is my number one, is the staying power. I have been wearing this for a good 13 hours at a time and have genuinely never felt happier with how my makeup has held up throughout the day. (Primer and powder-less!) The finish as the name suggests is neither matte or dewy but sort of silky whilst instantly brightening up a tired complexion. Although this is a totally luxe beauty purchase I really have never been happier with how my skin looks whilst wearing the Luminous Silk foundation. I can totally relax and feel confident that it still looks great after a long day.

    Ive always loved the sound of this foundation but I have skin thats on the oilier side so Im too scared to spend that much money on a foundation and ending hating it. So many people love it though!
