I love this foundation. I didn't read about Luminous anywhere. I was at Neiman one day and ended up at GA's counter. The MA looked at me and matched me with 6.5. I wasn't sold so she gave me a sample. After three days, I run back and got a full bottle. It's gorgeous on and gives me an even and very smooth skin. I don't have a flawless skin but Luminous gives me a flawless skin. I've had several people comment on how good my skin looks. I have combo skin and I'm happy to say that it stays on me all day long and no transfer.

A little goes a long way. I'm still using my sample and it's coming up two weeks. I look forward to putting this on every morning.

A beautiful foundation, tried so many foundations but so difficult to find the perfect shade- either chalky white or too orange or pink. Shade 4 is a perfect shade for my skin and gives me a lovely glow. Doesn't feel too heavy on the skin and makes you look healthy. Only downside is that is it quite expensive

This is my all time favorite foundation. I usually wear a tinted moisturiser with SPF during the day which I love though for the evening - this is a lifesavor,.

This foundation works so well! I have dry skin and this foundation has the perfect dewy finish that doesnt make my skin look dull at all. It blends effortly into my neck. One thing I didnt like is that I have to use two pumps instead of one to get the coverage I like, which is bad considering the $59 price tag. I'm a 5.5 and I use self tanner and they match really well once I use a little bronzer. It makes my skin feel really smooth, which I love. A couple weeks ago, I decided to try my old foundation again, just for fun, and it was a joke. It was so bad that I had to wash it off and start over! Once I have the financial means to do so, I'll be buying more! :)

love the finish of this foundation, the face looks perfect, luminous but no shiny, good coverage (medium?), natural look.

Only two cons:
- the price, 47 euros
- I dont find the color match to my skin tone. The 5 it's a bit ligther and pinkish, and 5.5 it's a bit darker and too yellow.

Some reviews says that they mix 4.5 with 6, but I don't want to have to buy two foundatons (almost 100 euros!).

Good product, but poor range of color.

For reference, I'm NC25-NW20, shiseido I20, BB 3-beige

After trying a number of liquid foundations, on the recommendation of a friend, I decided to give LSF a try. I was pretty hesitant at first because of the steep price tag, but since that day I don't have any regrets. Especially since Im someone who maybe wears a full face of liquid foundation once every 1-2 months, mainly for photo shoots, this works great for me.

I actually use this as more of a liquid concealer than anything else. Because it is so pigmented, a few small drops works great at covering any redness and dark circles. Its one of the reasons I love it since I dont need to cover my entire face, just spots that need more coverage and it still looks very natural.

Im not sure this is something I would recommend to everyone given the steep price, but if you can afford it go for it! If not, Im pretty sure there are cheaper options that work just as well on the market (I have just yet to find them)

This weekend, I pulled out my GA Luminous Silk Foundation sample and gave it another try. Thought I knew the sample color is a bit too light for me (#5, I normally wear 5.5), I would like to feel the texture of it during winter. Last time when I tried it, it was during summer, and it didn't work on my oily skin. I put it on around 5pm, and took some pictures of my family and myself around 7pm just for fun. OMG!!!! My face never looked soooooo pretty on camera! My skin looked flawless, I had this very natural glow, and my t-zone was behaving pretty well. It was perfect! However, the mu did not last long on my some what oily winter skin. By 10pm, I was looking and feeling greasy. Couldn't wait to get home and clean up my face. The worse part, I found myself having tiny pimples on the next day. In conclusion, this mu is best to wear for a short period of time, couple hours max for oily skin people. But it looks awesome on camera.

This liquid foundation has had good reviews in many different forums, so I was interested to try this, given my really 'hit and miss' recent experiences (and mostly disappointments) with new liquid foundations. I think that many HE brands are still struggling with maintaining an optimal color selection, that balances all skin tones, that lasts well, and that is color true. I'm extraordinarily pale, but seem to manage to wear # 4 without many nightmares about my color being too orange, or an off match.

Texture is almost that of a light tinted moisturizer. It's very liquid. Blends fast. Unfortunately, it rubs off on to everything really easily. However, a little does go a a long way for me, when my skin is behaving and I don't need a whole lot of coverage.

When applied with a delicate hand, this applies lightly and not too sheerly, nor dewy and pairs well with my cream blush from Bloom and just a bit of Chapstick for a casual, relaxed look. Or I can also dress it up fairly effectively, by using it as a base with my Givenchy face powder. So, from that viewpoint, it's a versatile, workable choice. All of that said, I won't be re-purchasing it because it's expensive for what it is. It's good, but not THAT good!.

I have been wearing this foundation (No. 9) for 2 years now and keep repurchasing it.

What I love about it:
- it is the perfect match for those that find MAC's NC44 too yellow
- gives a very natural finish
- medium buildable coverage
- looks beautiful on photos, i.e. no ghost face

What I don't like about it:
- the price; it retails for around 45

Compare with Design Cream, this one is more moisture and light. And this produce will give you better result after 2 hours. your makeup will be looked more nature.
