Name: Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk
Where : Giorgio Armani counters, Online
Coverage: Medium to full
The joint second most foundation I own. I went over to Selfridge’s one Saturday afternoon and made my way to the Armani counter. I bought myself some foundation after reading about about it in a magazine – ok ok, that’s not all I bought, I also bought a tube of mascara from them – Eyes to Kill. Anyway, back to the foundation. It’s a medium based coverage, and has very brown undertones. Its also not very thick and light and easy to put on. I felt I had to put a lot of it on to cover the scars on my cheek but other than that, this foundation is passable – which is not what you want to hear after spending so much on it! It does leave a lovely matte finish on your skin once your done though. The only downside is the cost of it and also how much of it you will need to use should you desire full coverage.
Unfortunately I don’t use this foundation anymore as its become way too brown for my skin tone and I look a little like a tree trunk when I have it on. Shame as it does not leave my skin oily – only one blot sheet (blue picture below) used after 8 hours of continuous wear, if you’re like me and you have an oily complexion, is a God-send.
Get it here online if you cant pop down to one of their counters.
