I've tried about 6 full samples of this (enough for several weeks of wear-testing)... and I didn't like it. At first it looked so nice on me! It wasn't completely matte, which I liked. The consistency is really thin but covers quite well (this is more of a light-medium coverage foundation) and looks natural - that is good. But then it began breaking down in a really short amount of time! I have normal-dry skin, which wasn't flaky or dehydrated in any way at the time I was testing this... but this foundation partly disappeared in patches - as IF it was flaking off. Other places it was sliding around and didn't really set in place. It didn't last on my pores either, leaving me with little dots on my nose. Overall, it lasted worse than Luminous Silk (which I also dislike) did on me. From what I know about my skin, I would guess that this foundation somehow irritated my skin, as I oil production and flaking is something my sensitive skin can do when being irritated. It didn't give me any redness or acne, but it seemed a little like my skin was trying to get rid of it. People whose skin is not irritated y this might have a much better experience. It's lucky that Armani provides samples though - at least you can test before buying a whole bottle. If you're still interested, 4.5 was a pretty good color for my then NC20 skin.
