I absolutely love this foundation! I have dry skin and find the armani shaping cream moisturising and of good coverage. A lot of people comment on my skin in a positive way and I am pretty sure it is down to this foundation. The only downside is the price - I would like to find a foundation as good as this but cheaper.
First time I tried this and its great. I bought an 8 which is the darkest Colorado they make in this foundation. My Color is more like rihanna. I have been searching for a creamy dewy foundation that.leaves ur face flawless and I swear it does! U may need to place a primer.to help shrink pores and for it.to last. That's what I did. I will try another day without primer. This left my face feeling moisturized and smooth. Frangrance free & spf 20. I used my fingertips and sponge.to blend. Set it.with Mac studio fix.primer and I swear I'm camera ready. This stuff is amazing! I.finally found a foundation that gives me all ive ever wanted. I would have paid.more for it.but it is expensive about 65 bucks continued >>
One of the best foundations I´ve ever tried. The shade 5,5 is a perfect match for me and doesn´t oxidize. It has a very good and buildable coverage, but manages to look natural and not heavy at all. Doesn´t settle in fine lines and doesn´t let me look overly greasy or matte. I´m impressed. It´s expensive, but worth it. Just a pity that the packaging is a jar.
I was really excited to try out this product after reading so many positive reviews, but this product made me breakout, which is the last thing I need right now, as I bought this to help cover up acne scarring. Had I been able to find an ingredient list for this product anywhere on the web beforehand, I probably wouldn't have purchased it - it's got a nice load of parabens. I was looking for a fuller coverage foundation to help cover up acne scarring without looking to make-up-y, but this definitely got greasy over the course of the day, didn't really cover up scars that well, and broke me out, so it's definitely going back. Not worth the hype or the price, unfortunately. I'll stick with Koh Gen Do Moisture Foundation.
I'm still in two minds about this foundation, after using it about five or six times now. It has a very full coverage, so I only use it at night and always with a foundation brush. I find that it does give fantastic coverage and makes most of my skin look flawless, however, I have mild acne scarring in one area, and I find that it does spread strangely over the scars and I really have to blend to get it to look smooth. Not sure if it is because of the brush that I am using but it definately doesn't go on as smoothly as I'd like. I have combination skin and I do find that halfway through the night the product starts to slip and my skin feels quite greasy - so if you tend to get an oily t-zone and you are using this foundation, make sure you make loose powder your best friend. I am quite happy to finish off using the jar (which is a pain to travel with) but not sure if I would purchase again.
It's my first Armani foundation and was recommended by SA out of their entire range. It did a great job on coverage on pores and acne scars to an extend, there were few darker scars which requires additional concealer. I do have combination skin so by later afternoon, my t-zone started become oily. Usually I would put but some loose powder and do for the rest of the day.
I am using shade 5.5 and matches my skin tone perfectly.
It came in a glass jar which is inconvenience to carry it around. Perhaps transfer small amount to travel container for touch up.
This is my favorite foundation so far and i have used a ton others before. it gives me a flawless airbrushed looking complexion and i just love love it. While the price is pretty steep as it cost twice what it would cost for other good brands, i know the importance of a good base and nothing beats a flawless complexion!
This cream gives very good coverage - hides pimple scars well. People with naturally good complexion need not use this. Sometimes when i feel like less coverage, i will combine this with the Armani's liquid foundation.
Bought this after receiving lots of recommendation and rave reviews about it and I must say it did not disappoint. Sure its pricey but it does a wonderful job at making my skin look flawless. I have acne scars and a few break outs here and there and it managed to conceal everything. Tried lots of other foundations before and I must say this does the best job. I would rather spend more for something that works than less for something that does a mediocre job. Would definitely buy it again. Ive tried luminous silk as well but I must say I prefer this. I reckon if you have flawless skint to begin with you wouldnt need to spend that much for a foundation but if you have got scars and pimples this is definitely worth the cost. Just make sure you cleanse thoroughly before going to bed.
I had very high expectations on this product (considering the price- £45!!!), sadly it did not satisfy me! Yes it's a good foundation if your looking for the 'dewy' look but it didn't hold onto my skin for long and caused me to breakout on my cheeks and forehead. But i guess one positive is that the first hour into wearing it, it made my skin look flawless. Covering every acne scar and blemish it did a great job. If only it held on for atleast six hours and didn't cause spots i would've definately purchased this. After two hours of wearing it i was a greaseball, no matter how much i blotted or applied powder it always seemed to tuen my face oily. That being said this may be great for those with dry skin.
Well, darn. I really wanted to love this foundation! I am *ok* with my current foundation but am always looking for the next best everything.
I realize that foundation is sort of a YMMV type thing (due to skin type, color, etc.) but this product did not suit me at all. I have dry skin, large-ish pores in my T-zone, a few forehead lines, and a few areas of redness (broken caps) that need to be concealed. I have been searching for a full coverage foundation that would be moisturizing and not too matte and the sales associate assured me that I would love this foundation. Unfortunately, I don't. It seems to settle into my pores really badly and wears away in a weird uneven way. My face feels really greasy when I am wearing this foundation, and I have dry skin----it never feels greasy! I picked up a primer today (Hard Candy) so hopefully it will help. If not, I guess it is onto to the next one :(
EDIT (2/19/2011): I gave this foundation another try and I am really liking it. I think the issue was my skin, not the foundation. My skin was very dry and red when I tried it, so of course the coverage wasn't going to be enough. I have been using full coverage for so long (CG AquaSmooth) that I forgot it is ok to have your skin show through! My skin is in a lot better shape right now, so I think that made the difference. If you aren't happy with your skin no foundation will suit you. So far so good, and I changed my rating to "would purchase again".
