In my previous blog post you may have read that I mentioned the word “perfect” when referring to the Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation..well it’s a true statement for me.
I have been trying to find the perfect foundation that would give me good coverage as well as making sure I don’t look too oily or too matte..this one, for me, seems to do the trick. If you have been following me from the days of Elizabeth’s Beauty, then you know that I have combination skin.
I have tried numerous foundations and felt that even though they were good I still felt that they weren’t perfect for what I needed them to do. Which was..making sure it would stay on the whole time I was at work and not oxidise or become too oily or stay too matte so it looks caked on. I’m also not a person who likes to pile on a huge amount of products on my face..I don’t like to be spending too much time on my make up in the morning cause I’m always rushing to get into work! (I should really get up early every time-right?!)
This foundation has the right amount of coverage and glow to give you that illuminated look. Of course I still like to highlight my cheekbones etc but I don’t do it often because I don’t feel I have to with this.
It’s a creamy foundation and it has a nice scent..it’s not too overpowering. I always shake it and the pump is great! It gives you enough product in one pump..you can control it which is great.
I apply it on my face and buff it in with my Real Techniques buffing brush (perfect brush for liquids) I got it in shade 4 and I find it matches my skin tone perfectly! I often find it hard to find the right shade because of the tones in my skin. I have an olive tone but I’m pale so it does become difficult. This shade, however, is the perfect one for me. I do recommend testing the shades to find your perfect one.
The girls at the Giorgio Armani counter, in Brown Thomas Limerick, are so helpful and are willing to give you samples because they know it’s best for their customer to try out the product before they invest. They’re not cheap products. It’s nice that they’re so helpful! Go up to the counter and ask for Mary Kiely or Chloe..they’re all super helpful though!
I took a photo of me wearing it after coming back from work and I basically had it on today since 9am until 7:15pm. You can see that it has held up well.. It’s very hard to find a foundation that stays almost the same as when you first applied it. (By the way I know I needed to fix up my lipstick..just forgot but at least you can see the foundation)
So..the conclusion…it is well worth the money! I’ve been recommending it to my colleagues at work because that is how much I love it. It really is my perfect foundation.
What do you think? Have you tried it? Next up will be the concealer.
