Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation Review

Giorgio Armani’s luminous silk foundation is very well known in the blogging world. I purely purchased it because it’s meant to be good for people with acne. I also wanted to see if it would live up to all of its good reviews. 


At £37 it isn’t something you could go out to buy everyday, but I personally think it’s worth every penny. It gives your skin the most beautiful finish, it doesn’t look like your wearing any foundation at all. It’s basically your second skin. It says it in the name, it makes your skin look luminous. It gives your skin that perfect dewy glow without making your skin appear oily because it has a matte finish. The foundation lasts all day perfectly, at the end of a long shift at work it looks like I’ve only recently applied it. The foundation blends so well by itself, with highlight, contour as well as when you apply it on top of concealer.


I’d say that it’s medium coverage, but it’s definitely buildable. Has no SPF, so it’s perfect to wear on nights out or when there’s flash photography. The foundation is oil free, which means that it’s good for acne prone skin. Extremely lightweight and silky in texture, it doesn’t even feel like your wearing a foundation.

Overall, I’m in LOVE with this foundation. It’s my new go to foundation and will be for an extremely long time I think. It’s my current perfect foundation.

      It’s honestly amazing! The glass bottle adds to the appearance so much, that’s when you can tell a foundation is super high end!!
