Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation: Review, Pics, Swatches

Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation

For the first time in forever, I am having a really, really good skin day.

Yes, some of that is down to my new BFF, the Clarisonic Mia, but some of it is most definitely down to this lightweight, luminising and light-reflecting base.

Hot on the heels of our foundation matching tales of woe, this month sees Giorgio Armani Cosmetics release 7 new shades of Luminous Silk Foundation.

This makes it easier than before to match your unique complexion shade, and huzzah! New shade 3.5 is actually my perfect match.

Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation Swatches

In the car this morning I caught sight of my face in the mirror and marvelled for the rest of the journey at how the light was bouncing off the tops of my cheeks.


With zero highlighting or contouring going on, my face somehow looked more radiant and sculpted. And with my chubby cheeks believe me, that’s somethin' like a phenomenon.

Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation before and after

Before and after; obviously I'm not wearing any other makeup in the after pic but you can see it on my fully painted mug here.  

Now it’s not perfect by any means. Coverage is on the light side, so it’s just as well my skin has been whipped into submission these days, and I still use concealer and a dusting of powder on my tzone. And by the end of the working day I would definitely need to top up if I were planning on a cheeky wee cocktail or two.

Oh, and it’s €42.69, which will be a deterrent to many right there.

But if it’s gorgeous, glowy, radiant and natural looking skin you’re after, and it works with your budget, then this baby should be ticking all your boxes. It’s definitely ticking mine.
