Product Review : Luminous Silk Foundation

Friday, September 25, 2015

I'm sure we've all seen this product before. It's the Luminous Silk Foundation by Giorgio Armani. I have been using this foundation for almost three months straight. I'm on my second bottle, and I will probably buy a third. I first heard of this foundation through make-up artists on Youtube. I actually saw Jaclyn Hill raving about it months ago, and decided to pick it up. 

I'm in the shade "5". It's obviously fair in color, but has neutral undertones. This foundation does have a light finish. It's intended to leave your skin dewy and fresh looking, hence the "luminous". I really like that the formula is on the lighter side, because I am definitely one to pack on concealer, so having a lightweight foundation doesn't make me look overly done. Most of the time, I forget the foundation is on my face, because it's blends in effortlessly into my skin. 

The foundation is build-able. It's doesn't leave you with full coverage with one application, but you can double-dip with problem areas. I usually leave my problem areas to my concealer, and use this foundation to even out my complexion. This product is a bit on the pricier side at $62 for an ounce of product. 

This foundation does really last all day though. I've had it on through twelve hour doubles at my job, and it's always stuck through to the end. I have super sensitive skin, and its given me no trouble at all with breakouts. I will just pump twice, and apply with my Morphe foundation brush. 

Overall, I love this foundation. It leaves my skin silky smooth, and gives me a pretty glow. I love the coverage, I love how it's blend-able and build-able, and I really like that it is a weightless formula!

Buy the foundation here!



  1. Sounds amazing and I've heard so many people rave about this. It must be worth the price!

  2. This foundation has been on my list to try for what seems like ages now. I honestly don't think I've read a well written review about it that had anything bad to say either. Glad you're loving it!!
