Liquid -Giorgio Armani -Luminous Silk Foundation

How do I love thee, let me count the ways:
- The best thing I find about Luminous Silk is the silky (duh), slippery texture that glides over the skin effortlessly. I have to blend most other foundations very carefully over small areas of my face to avoid cakey spots. With this one, I got completely lazy - I can slap a pump's worth into the middle of my face, slather it around, and it gives me a completely even, perfectly blended coverage without drying up and setting too fast and clinging to skin patches. For a light all-over application, I get the best results when I use my fingers and simply spread it around just like a moisturizer. (Some reviews mentioned that they hated LS when using it with the Beauty Blender, and I hated the BB when using it with this foundation, so it looks like they're not compatible, if that's your preferred application method. Not a problem for me, but LS is rather light and thin, so sponges and brushes soak it up quite easily.)

- It can be built up from about medium-light to medium-heavy coverage without looking heavy. On the days when the above is not enough, I like to take a bit more and apply it with a tapping motion wherever I need it, either with my fingers or a brush. This covers any redness, capillaries, faded scars and light spots. It won't cover anything too dark/red, but I'd rather use a concealer than a heavy foundation for that.

- The finish, despite the name, is rather natural with slight dewiness. For me (normal skin that's sometimes prone to dryness and can get oily towards the end of the day), it's perfect - anything more matte looks dry and patchy on me, and anything richer sits on top of the skin, and I just end up using too much powder to get rid of the tacky feel. This may not be the best foundation for those who have very dry skin, though - I tried using it after a (bad) experiment with a salicylic acid toner, and it did emphasize the skin flakes.

- It stays on quite well for 8-12 hours. It does get shiny in the middle of the day and fade a bit towards the evening, of course, but it never breaks down in patches (Chanel's Vitalumiere Aqua!) or otherwise looks offensive.
All in all, like any foundation, it won't suit every single skin type, but it's a fantastic in-between option - not too heavy, not too light, not too matte and not too dewy. I've been using this for about 10 years now, and every time I "cheated" on it with a different foundation, I regretted it.

Very beautiful matte but not flat looking foundation for my oily skin. The coverage is great and high but does not look like a cakey mask on my face. It wears nicely even without primer and keeps me shine free for quite a while, I’m very impressed!

Can't believe no one is reviewing this!! This is by far the best liquid lipstick in the whole freaking cosmetic industry.

I love it so much I am going to write a proper review for this. It deserves it.

1. The shades are very universal
- I normally have a hard time finding the right lipstick colour for myself, because I have a weird combination of undertones (medium to light, neutral + olive + slightly warmish undertone? it's confusing). Only a selective numbers of cool and warm shades are ok for me. But this product...I randomly picked 5 colours and THEY ALL LOOK AMAZING ON MEEE!! I don't have to worry about looking off everytime I try a new colour from this series. I can finally wear new colours, especially light coloured ones!!!
- The colour selection is great. From subtle everyday colours to bold ones. Just pick any colours, you will be surprised at how each colour looks on you because they are great on all skin tones.
- Amongst all the colours, 506 in Fusion is my favourite. A very elegant, muted pink. I personally find it perfect for all looks.

2. Natural and extremely comfortable finish, stays put for the whole day
- It's quite liquidy and creamy with a very thin formula, it feels like nothing on my lips and it DOES NOT transfer. Yes, no more stains on cups and straws. Not drying at all. Absolutely comfortable to wear.
- Because the colour is so intense, even with all the eating and drinking, you can only tell that the colour has faded by looking up close.
- It only transfers and wears out quickly if I have lip balm beneath this product, or if I put a layer of lipgloss on top of it.

3. Amazing application
- The applicator is very well designed!! I suck at applying liquid lipstick but not with this because the pointy applicator makes the whole application process effortless, quick, and precise!
- Different application method gives a different finish. It has an intense colour payoff so I usually smudge the product with my finger to get a more natural finish. If I want a glam look, I apply with the applicator itself.

4. Travel-friendly, amazing packaging
- Doesn't leak, very sturdy and beautifully designed packaging

5. Fragrance free
- I have no issue with fragrance, but people who prefer fragrance-free products would love this

Con? It's expensive. Otherwise, I have nothing bad to say about it.

So I realllly wanted to love this foundation after reading reviews and hearing the kardashians rated it. For me this is probably THE worst foundation I have ever used. No exaggeration. I can only think this works if you have perfect skin.

The girl I purchased it from was lovely and told me for more coverage apply with beauty blender. However when I did this I found the blender ate it all up as the product is soooo watery.
I tried with a brush which was slightly better but didn’t feel it gave me a “silky” look. After a day of wearing it I found it went so patchy and I mean like having to rub it in in places making my already combo skin look worse.

The packaging is great as it’s small so fits in bags easier but for me that was the only plus with this product. Massively over rated and over priced deffo not re purchasing. Sorry to bring the rating down but feel maybe this isn’t great for combo skin!!

Always wears off very quickly, better to not touch the face at all wearing this. My normal skin gets super oily after an hour with this foundation. I have to fix my makeup more than 3 times as skin gets oily and shiny. Also in my opinion it has narrow shade range.
The only thing that keeps me using this, that this foundation doesn't clog my pores, feels very light on my face and has a quite good consist.
Won't buy it again. For such price I was expecting higher quality.

One of my all-time favorites. Beautiful sheer but buildable coverage, dewy skin-like finish. I always get compliments when I wear it.

I love these. They’re hydrating and long lasting and are the only things that I can wear when I want colour on my lips that don’t rub off onto my braces 😁

I will always repurchase this product (unless they change the formula of course). It feels light but offers good coverage and makes the skin feel like silk. I love the natural finish and the fact that it stays on all day. I love that it does not have SPF (seriously, all these products with SPF in them? Do NOT put any chemicals on your face that you don't have to. If you're going to be out in the sun all day, fine, apply sunscreen. If you're going to be sitting inside all day, you do not need to wear a moisturiser or foundation with SPF. I can't stress enough how bad this is for your skin) Anyhoo! Because it is SPF free, I don't react which is nice (and rare).
The price is steep, the packaging looks nice but I feel that I don't get every last bit of product out (which I'd like to do after spending $100 on it).
It may sit differently on different skin types though.

Amazing foundation. It is expensive about £40 here in the UK but worth it if you are in need of a good full coverage foundation that does not look too heavy. I love the feeling of it - lightweight and does not feel heavy on the skin.

I feel comfortable wearing this in spite of the full coverage effect, it glides on easily, my skin still feels like "my skin" just better! Gives a nice sheen/glow to the skin so it is not drying or too matte. I have oily skin but even for oily skin it works wonders! Definitely would purchase again.

Awful, I really wanted to love this and I even went so far as to checking my technique with the sales lady again and youtube videos.

Thin watery foundation with a lovely glow to it, beautifully packaged. Does not work with a beauty blender as too watery and product just doesn’t hit the skin so you must use a brush.

The result: patchy uneven skin, always wears off on the nose first. Wore it to work and thought I did a good job, everyone kept saying how tired I looked. Coverage is so poor and the more you use the more your pores become emphasised.

I wanted to love this and and I don’t disagree with any of the positive reviews here as skin type differs we all suit different things, but I’m very surprised they aren’t more negative reviews.

It’s over hyped and you need good skin for this foundation. If you go to the counter ask them to do a full face or even get your own sample, do not purchase based on a patch test at the counter.

I don’t even believe Kim k even wears this as her skin is flawless.

Having allergies to sun screen products I was very interested in trying this Tinted Moisturizer Treatment Product w/o sun screen. Stopped twice at the department store and received generous samples of three different colors. No. 3,4, and 4.5. Not one of the colors were great to justify the price. My color is Neutral light/medium, not too warm or cool. The coverage is very light, barely evened out my skin color and the finish is not dewy but more flat. The product comes in a large jar which over time would not be very sanitary. A cheaper tube can be had. Over priced and under performed for the promotion of it.

Bronzers -Giorgio Armani -Sun Fabric Bronzer - 100

on 12/8/2017 4:53:00 PM

At least out of what I've tried so far, this is the perfect bronzer for those who struggle to pull off any bronzer!
I'd describe the colour as a true brown/beige that doesn't pull orange, gold (like so many bronzers meant for lighter skin) or pink. It's very neutral - definitely not the warmest, but also not the coolest on the market. For me, this is as cool as a bronzer can get while still performing as a bronzer and without making me look like I came down through a chimney. There's something very...grown-up about the look it gives me. (For reference, I am on the fair-ish side with barely any warmth/ Luminous Silk #2.)

In terms of texture, it also strikes a happy medium. It's sheer enough to be very forgiving, and I can just tap it on with a fluffy brush without having to spend a good ten minutes blending it out. It's creamy, but not so soft that the brush picks up too much product or the powder flies off in all directions. At the same time, it's pigmented enough to potentially overapply (though it's very hard to do so by accident). It's buildable without looking powdery and heavy, and I don't feel like I need different bronzers for different seasons.
I can see some sparkles in the pan, and a satin sheen if I swatch it heavily, but it never has any obvious shine and shimmer on the face - it looks like a matte bronzer, but without the flat and chalky look.

So I finally bit the bullet and picked this up during the Sephora VIB sale (reg. $70 CAD). I have dry skin, I like more natural looking foundations (i.e. not full coverage), and based off of all the youtube love, I thought this would be ideal for my skin. Result: meh.

I debated returning it, but I debated too long and missed the window lol. I purchased shade 4.0 which is a tad light for my NC25 skin tone, but since it has light coverage, it's easy to work with it in spite of that. Also the shade numbers are really odd. 3.5 is actually darker than 4.0? So keep that in mind if you're purchasing online.

There is a scent to this, but I didn't notice any strong fragrance so I'm not bothered at all by it. The coverage is quite light but buildable, so it's customize-able I suppose in that sense. I haven't tried it in flash photography or video (which is where this is supposed to be amazing), but i'm not a youtuber and I don't walk around with papparazzi following me so I'm not sure if investing in this is worth the odd time that I end up taking photos (assuming it looks amazing as everyone else says). It's not incredibly long wearing but it's not a big deal for me because i always use a setting spray.

It doesn't look bad, but it doesn't look $70 foundation good.

I would not repurchase and for the price, I would not recommend.
