Damn it, GA. You are perfection. More coverage than my previous HG MUFE F&B and a touch more matte. Longer lasting than PF Nude Wear Glow, although the texture and coverage is very similar. Is more natural looking than Lancome Teint Idole and EL Double Wear Lite, and more comfortable on my skin than Colorstay. Also, more glow than Colorstay too, so take that Colorstay. Luminous even coverage that makes my skin look *better* while covering my flaws. This lasts all day, but doesn't look cakey and doesn't sit in pores. It is expensive, but comes in a convenient and hygienic pump bottle. You win. Are you happy now? Damn.

Anytime I try another foundation I'm reminded that this the best, most flattering foundation, and I don't think there's a close second. My skin glows and looks considerably younger. My #1 choice for many years.

I bought 6.5 at bloomingway.com! They have the cheapest price for the GA! Here in Australia, it retails for 80aud ish . I got if for 60+. When i received it , i was so shaky and excited! Imagine i have been lemming this product since 2007! Omg! And now i had it , it's a perfect moment! Initially i thought it looked beigey because i applied it in the morning where the sun is so so bright but when i applied it at nightime, it's the perfect yellow olive shade that I always see online. So yeah i would use it more on the night. It's kinda weird hey. But trust me i have been studying foundations, undertones, colors for like 10years now because i hve been searching the perfect color! Ai love how it feels! It blends well. Yeah it doesnt give u the most matte finish like hourglass but it creates a beautiful look overall. I hate the smell , reminded me of fhe old Bobbi Brown oil free foundation that I abhored back in the days. Yes it is buildable, and it takes time to set. I can compare it to Loreal true match but the latter is weak in oil control . You must try it I promise! Im an nc40, olive in becca , cashew in EL DW. Give it a try!

When a male friend notices & remarks on how great your skin looks you know you have found THE foundation. The one. Great coverage without feeling or looking false. This hides my rosacea without upsetting my sensitive skin with 2 pumps. Worth. Every. Penny.

I bought this foundation due to all the hype about it. I thought it would be good for my dry skin given that it was "luminous".This foundation was a good enough match for me, perhaps a little on the yellow side. I have very fair skin and was in the shade 3 (I think it's the lightest shade). The coverage for this foundation let it down. It gave a light to medium-ish coverage. Although it didn't emphasize my dry areas, it certainly didn't hide them! I liked the texture of the foundation, it was light but you could feel you were wearing foundation. The staying power wasn't great. After about 3 hours it would go patchy and oily. Especially around the nose and jaw area. I bought it again to see if I just got a bad batch but that wasn't the case! I would recommend testing it out before buying it as the pricetag is quite heft!

PROS: I like the very subtle glow it gives. Has enough yellow-based shades, at least in the lighter shades. Great in my pores. Pretty good in my wrinkles.CONS: The price. This sits on top of the skin and looks obvious, even with trying to apply lightly and matching my skin well. And even applying lightly, I can't get a more natural look when I want that. I can't even imagine trying to find a match without testers. The shades jump from lighter to darker to lighter as you go up the numbers of shades. There's no rhyme or reason to it. I had to blend two colors to find my match, which I don't mind too much, but it took me forever to find them from the testers.ALTERNATES: I always go back to my L'oreal Visible Lift Serum foundation for the best look in my pores and wrinkles.

This foundation broke me out quite badly. I normally use MAC Face and Body (my HG) because I have normal, blemish free skin that doesn't need a huge amount of coverage. Even though I love MAC f&b, curiosity got the best of me and I tried a sample of Luminous Silk, loved it and therefore bit the bullet and paid an eyewatering £36.50 for it. I loved it at first, the shade, the silkiness and the fact that it's pretty longlasting. However, after about two weeks of use I started to notice loads of small hard pimples on my chin that felt like little grains of sand under my skin..it felt horrible. I put it down to stress and tiredness and really didn't want it to be the foundation so kept wearing it. A week later, these pimples had spread from my chin up the side of my cheeks - and turned into large red spots, both places where I never get spots. The spots are painful and really angry looking which I assume is due to the foundation as I haven't started wearing anything new. I looked up the ingredients and there are a few very potent ingredients that are notorious for clogging pores and causing breakouts many of which aren't found in many other high end foundations.It's also not as 'glowy' as it is often marketed as (IMO). I found it to be quite drying and found it to totally emphasize my dry patches. To achieve a glow with this foundation I found I had to mix it with illuminators/highlighters which I hate doing because no matter what people say they mostly look gimmicky and glittery.Aside from the fact that it has broken me out I probably wouldn't recommend this for the price. I find it hard to build up for special occassions/evenings, compared with other light weight foundations that can be built up nicely. I'm left asking myself if because I have been using MAC f&b for so long I have become so accustomed to the gorgeous, glowy finish of that foundation that maybe nothing looks as good as that, that's just my opinion though. I've stopped using it now and hope my skin clears up.

I donít understand why itís so popular? Maybe depending on the shade you get and the skin type you have? I really donít like it, and Iíve gave it a good go for 2-3 months. The less expensive foundations Iíve tried were much better than this one!Pros;- Beautiful colour, that matches my skin tone perfectly - Luminous look - glow- It looks okay for an hour - Okay coverage Cons;- Makes my skin oily (even with primer, or without moisturiser) - After an hour of wearing it, it sinks into my pores, it looks awful - Breaks me out (Iíve got sensitive skin, and I get a few pimples here and there, I feel like every time I wear it, I get more pimples after)- It has a heavy feel on my skin, just makes me want to scratch it of my face - I feel like you have to apply a lot to get a good look- It doesnít stick to the skin well, anywhere you touch on your face you remove the foundation Better waste money somewhere else!

I purchased this via the web and had to guess on a shade (did not find the product in stores in Omaha Ne), the pump doesn't work and the shade might be a bit off but I still am not impressed with the product. Crazily I do like the Bobby Brown that I've read poor reviews for (has an SPF of 45 I believe) much better coverage.
