I certainly wanted to love this, after dabbling in Armani lipsticks and being blown away by the Fluid Sheer liquid highlighter. (Tip to cool, fair girls: it works on its own!)The coverage is good--a bit more than medium, I'd say. The finish is neither chalky nor greasy, but given the heaviness of this product, I wouldn't want to wear it every day.My big issue with it is color choice. I'm about an NW20, maybe even a touch lighter. I've tried 3 different shades, from 3.75 down to 5.25, and cannot find one that doesn't make me glow yellow. Darn!

I quite like this foundation as it has a medium type of coverage and a nice soft finish. I have not had issues with it and it has not become cakey or melted. I wear it throughout the day and sometimes over 10 hours and so far so good. I wish it came with SPF though but it still works fine if you wear a moisturizer with sun protection. The swatch range is better than a lot of "luxury" branded foundations and tanned to darker or deeper skin tones can find a match.

This is a lovely light to medium coverage foundation. As others have stated, it is not going to last more than 6-8 hours on your skin. However, this is typical of most foundations that offer coverage on the light side. It also doesn't have sunscreen. If you want that try their Lasting Silk. Those points aside, Luminous Silk offers a beautiful velvety finish. I apply a second light coat over any "problem" areas. As with most foundations, the key is finding a good color/tone match. They offer a nice range of shades.

I really really tried to make this work for me because nothing beats the natural finish GA LS provides BUT the fragrance is so damn strong and harsh , my bf calls it a man repellant bc of the grandma powder sunscreen fragrance. I wear contacts everyday for actual vision needs and together or without, this foundation gives me watery eyes, stuffy nose & accentuates my under eye circles EVEN with a corrector. Unbelievable right!? At first I thought it was just me n allergies but my boyfriend even commented on the strong smell.. I eventually gave it up because it only made me look worse.To those that aren't sensitive to fragrance , this foundation is a holy grail and looks incredible in photos. Its also what news anchors use for HD recording. Though its not as long lasting as I would hope but the formula melts into skin so well that it sort of gives that 'after sex' glow for at least an hour before it really starts to grease, something rare for my combo skin. Getting the right shade is also super tricky. I recommend getting samples in at least TWO shades before finalizing your purchase.

This foundation is great for those looking for something that is good coverage yet not cakey looking. It gives a finish that is in-between matte and dewy. I found that its very moisturizing on the skin, and because of this it is very buildable to give you a light-medium coverage.I've never EVER found a foundation that totally matches my skin until using this in shade 3, its perfect for those who have very pale skin but with warm undertones as this shade is super yellowy.The only downside to this product is that it doesn't really stay in place throughout the day. I use a good primer and setting spray and find that this does fade from my nose area. I don't have very oily skin and have found that this foundation does give me a lot of shine on my forehead, chin and nose but its not anything that a bit of powder can't fix.Overall, I like this foundation mainly because it suits my skin perfectly, but the formula is not amazing. If you're looking for a light/medium coverage foundation this is perfect, if not do not buy this as you can get better coverage foundations for a cheaper price.

HOLY GRAIL PRODUCT! I've been using this for 2 years and I've never used anything like it before! After all the hype from bloggers I gave in and bought the product. It's coverage is light, and literally feels like silk on your skin! I've never gone back to using any other foundation. I have combo to oily skin and this is just perfect for me, it's highly difficult to find a foundation which suits my combo skin days and highly oily days and this just does that. Defos worth the investment

I love this foundation! I have very difficult coloring to match as I am dark but with pink tones. The only foundations that are beige with pink undertones are this Luminous Silk in 5.25 and Chanel Rose Beige . ( unless anyone has found any more!)The coverage is perfect - not too heavy but medium coverage with a brush. The staying power is okay- not remarkable but with Chanel finishing powder it lasts a good eight hours. I have mature skin and it does not accentuate undesirable elements! I wouldn't call this dewy or matte but more like luminous satin. I always set with powder which does detract from the luminousity.I also bought the GA highlighting fluid in the number 5 which gives a lovely subtle glow to cheeks and other areas you wish to highlight. The color looks really bubblegum pink in the jar but honestly it looks natural after application and it is a light weight runny liquid. Yes expensive but both last long time and I feel the color selection is good for a great many people.

It's one thing having alcohol in a foundation, but it's another charging £37 for it. It is a cheap ingredient used to make cosmetics feel more weightless but it is very bad for your skin. So don't let the 'weightlessness' fool you into thinking that this foundation is miraculously breathable - it comes at a price. The foundation looks very nice on. It photographs very nicely and blends into skin nicely. It lasts pretty well and becomes more dewy as time goes on. The coverage is medium-buildable.Overall: I mean, it really does look lovely. And if you don't care about it being bad for your skin and paying an excess amount for literally nothing (the designer name), then you will probably like this. But I feel angry for being charged so much money for a foundation that has a substantial amount of alcohol in it, when there are foundations out there which work just as well with more state-of-the-art formulations, and a smaller price tag (between £20-£30). Chanel is the same: they have alcohol in nearly all their foundations. Out of the £37 you pay, what you receive is only a couple of pounds' worth. Higher prices don't always mean higher quality.

Bought it due to the hype but i found it drying and a bit cakey on my dry skin even when applied with my sephora hd brush. I don't see much luminescence. Finish is too matte for my liking even though it's described as a "satin finish". I prefer Makeupforever HD and Face & Body. For every day wear I prefer Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer. Thank goodness i bought the smaller bottle and I'll finish it since it was expensive. It actually accentuates flakes when I have them.

Not a good foundation. It's ridiculous to pay an arm and a leg for a name and cheap chemicals that damage our skin and health. This foundation is full of cancer causing agents. Every product we use in our skin is absorbed into our skin and enters our blood stream. Look the ingredients up on EWG's Skin Deep, or anywhere in the internet. If you care about your health, don't fund products like these.
