Love this

Jess

Thought I would give this a work after seeing so many good reviews online. It is my new favourite foundation, it’s gives your skin a nice luminous look and can be built up to a fuller coverage if desired

Most Helpful Criticism

A little cakey

Lizzie

This foundation looks lovely on a lot of my friends but just clings to all my dry areas and looks cakey! Which is such a shame because it can look so good when first applied. Id recommend trialling primers with this one!
  1. Love this

  2. As great as they say it is!

    Christine

    Have been tossing up on trying this or sticking to my usual go to foundation. It does not disappoint. It feels like nothing on, such a smooth luminous finish, buildable for fuller coverage, long wearing and comes in a good range of shades. I used Findation and thank the stars it turned out super accurate to my skin! It is definitely a staple and must be tried at least once in your life.
  3. Very luxe but a little too matte

    Mrs S

    This product feels very luxe but it's a little too matte for my tastes. I can't use it without a highlighter added to the product which is a little disappointing considering the price. I also feel like I need a dewy spray over the top too.
  4. Will never buy another.

    Ren

    If you are looking for a light silky coverage this foundation is perfect. It is foundation that makes you look like you are wearing no foundation and have perfect dewy hydrated skin :)
  5. Holy Grail

    Jemma

    I was lucky enough to get a good sample from... a department store... and oh my god it’s amazing. I will absolutely be buying a full size when I can! I look and feel flawless in this foundation!
  6. Super luxe

    Clairexo

    Worth the splurge feels great on and long lasting formula the shade range is expansive feels great and looks very luminous as stated
  7. Great

    sam

    this foundation looks good on my skin when I apply a light layer.
  8. A lovely special occasion foundation

    madmads

    This lovely, buildable foundation is my go-to for special occasions. It can go from medium to full coverage (or light if you mix it with a moisturiser) and has a natural finish. I would wear it every day but the price and alcohol level are too high for me to wear every day. I don't find this sticks to any dry patches but a good exfoliation and skin prep before applying never goes astray.
  9. The absolute best

    Emma

    My skin is acne-prone, dehydrated yet oily. This foundation is fantastic. Coverage is great and can be easily built up with no cakie-ness. Highly recommend it.
  10. amazing

    jenny

    my go to foundation, long lasting, good colour match and natural finish
  11. just beautiful

    cherry

    gave such a nice look on me. it gave me a no makeup look as it is so hydrating and so good. i am very happy with my purchase.
  12. Amazing

    D

    I got this after I watched a you tuber recommend this. It feels so comfortable on the skin. I have combination skin and this doesn't look oily at all and looks luminous as the name has it.
  13. Best foundation ever

    Nat

    This is my ultimate favourite foundation of all time! Not only is it light but it’s also buildable and provides great coverage. It feels so nice on the skin, very dewy and not drying at all. I also feel like it doesn’t aggravate any active breakouts.

  15. Lovely.. but after a lot of trial and error

    ALW

    I have oily/combo skin, but wanted to try a lighter foundation product. Fair warning, the only way I can get this foundation to not look cakey is to use a wet sponge. However, I only can dab it lightly (and not too much) otherwise it starts to peel. It has taken me so long and lots of trial and error to make it work, so hopefully this helps someone else! Otherwise it is a lovely light foundation,...

  16. Lightest foundation ever

    Cherry

    It is a lightweight foundation that sits so beautifully on the skin and gives a luminous finish. Coverage is not too high that makes it perfect for summers
  17. Incredible

    Jemma

    This is the most beautiful foundation I’ve ever put on my face. The coverage is beautiful, the shade is perfect, it lasts, it doesn’t cling to dry patches or slip off oily ones. If it was t so expensive, I’d use it every day!
  18. My HG special foundation

    B

    I use this foundation when I’ve got a special event or if I’m going out. It’s lightweight, makes your skin so beautiful and luminous. Honestly looks so beautiful on. I use it with the Giorgio Armani foundation brush and also a beauty blender.
  19. One of my favourites

    Christyca8888

    This foundation gave me a beautiful, luminous skin, especially that I have a combination skin with an oily t zone. Lasts for hours and leaves a satin finish. I tend to use a brush to apply and blend. Gives a light to medium coverage. Didn’t notice a scent. I use this mostly during winter season as my skin doesn’t get too oily.
  20. My holy grail foundation

    Grace

    Still the best foundation I've used and, for the price, it's not that much more than a NARS or MAC foundation but I just find it so much better. It's natural-looking and it really sinks into your skin instead of just lying on top like face paint or clinging to dry spots. I hadn't bought in a while because of the price tag but now I remember why it's totally justifiable (for me).
  21. Flawless finish

    Jessica

    Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk is by far my favourite foundation. I bought my first bottle for a job interview and fell in love. The coverage is light to medium, luminous (duh) but not at all shiny. I would call it radiant. It evens out my skin tone without ever looking cakey or over the top. Day to day I wear a tinted moisturiser with SPF 50 but for special occasions, weddings, going out, job inter...

  22. Absolutely the best out there

    Nour

    There is no doubt this is the best foundation I've every tried, and it is worth every penny. There is no price you can put on gorgeous, smooth, silk like skin and this gives you that.
  23. Great colour match but . . .

    M D

    The packaging is lux and it comes in a frosted, heavy glass bottle.

    I have a medium olive skin tone and the shade 6 is perfect for me. But I feel like the pro ends there.

    The cons: I found that this flaked and looks cakey throughout the day no matter how much I moisturise, how long I wait for my base products to set before I put it on, and even if I try the correct prime...

    Love this foundation! Definitely a good option if you favour light-medium coverage. Before this I was using Nars sheer glow - I prefer luminous silk.
  25. Everything I want in a foundation

    Laura

    This has been my go to foundation for many years now.

    I will occasionally use others I like or try new ones, but Armani Luminous Silk is the foundation that I ALWAYS have in my makeup collection. It has the perfect amount of coverage and glow for me, and it photographs lovely. It's a beautiful foundation and is always the one I will reach for before a night out or an event, and quite...

  26. My new best friend

    TabzG

    Perfect for everyday and perfect for night's out !

    This foundation goes on so smooth and easily and doesn't dry too quickly so it gives you time to work with it and blend it out ! But when it dries, it leaves a glowy (not too glowy) finish to the skin, giving you a very smooth airbrush texture to your skin without being matte.

    Coverage is medium, but I found if you pop ...

  27. Goodbye pores

    Mandy

    As I applied this foundation I assumed the cover would be quite light cover because it felt so light on my skin but it blended into my skin beautifully, covering my acne and making my large pores around my nose look non-existent. Possibly the nicest foundation I've tried in s long time. The only thing I dont like is the strong scent, but that's just personal preference.
  28. Best foundation

    amyhalfway

    This foundation is the go to, it's fine and light with medium coverage to wear all day long. I'm on my third bottle now.
  29. My Go To

    DZ

    Despite the price tag, I quickly began replacing my old foundation with Giorgio Armani's Luminous Silk Foundation. Unlike most, this foundation looks like a second skin. It has a smooth and dewy application (which can easily be minimised with some powder). It also holds up well throughout the day.
  30. The good reviews say it all.

    Sarah

    This is a brilliant foundation with a beautiful dewy finish and medium coverage that is long lasting and comfortable to wear all day. Total winner.
  31. #1 foundation

    Bee

    This foundation is perfect in every way. Perfect colour, good coverage and feels beautiful on skin. I keep it for special occasions as it’s pricey.
  32. Perfecto!!

    Liz

    I have been looking at soo many foundations lately. I have noticed a massive change in my skin (approaching 40) I trialed over 8 foundations... I finally caved and bought the most expensive one, but WOW, it is definitely worth it. Glides on smoothly, The colour match is perfect and just feels like second skin. Silky to touch. I wish I didn't wait so long to purchase. A beautiful satin finish
  33. Go-To for light-medium coverage day events!

    Sophie

    Finally purchased this product and definitely did not disappoint (bought shade 6.5 which matches my fake tan perfectly - very similar colour match to NARS Sheer Glow in Barcelona which I also adore for more so medium-full coverage) I think its gorgeous for day time events and it has hold up pretty well longevity wise which I am impressed by! I do suffer from some of that post-blemish pigmentation,...

  34. Second Skin

    AHHH-MAZING

    This is the god of all foundations. Literally like a second skin. Beautifully matte, yet dewy. Stays in place all day, doesn’t settle in fine lines. Blends amazingly with whatever products I put over it. Words cannot describe, I am blown away!
  35. Luminous look

    Lily

    This gives me a smooth, even and luminous look. Recommend it
  36. Best Foundation for Olive Skin Tone

    Kayla

    This is truly the perfect foundation. It has a lovely finish that makes my skin glow, however it is not too dewy for my oily/combo skin. It has a medium coverage, that can be applied more sheer or built up. It doesn't look cakey and you can still see your skin. I have tried so many other foundations and I always come back to this one. The other thing I love is that shade 6 perfectly matches my med...

  37. Great for light coverage

    Nadja

    I have normal to dry skin and this product lasts all day without much sign of wear - I was looking for a more luxury foundation and this is perfect for a natural finish. Did not find it to be cakey and spreads over face really easily.
  38. Natural finish

    Amanda

    I’ve been using tinted moisturizers recently and decided to try something a little more coverage. This has a surprisingly natural finish, one layer is perfect for me without feeling heavy. It’s a light liquid but can be built up and gets better over time. I’m fair but ran easily and 5 suits me perfectly can I can deepen it with bronzer if needed.
  39. So good

    Tahlia

    I bought this because I had a voucher to use and I would never normally pay full price for this. At first I thought it looked a little powdery on me but I get that it’s a satin finish. But then the more I played around with it; I actually love it. It looks Glowy without looking shiny or wet on the skin.
  40. Definitely silky

    Coby

    Have had a lot of friends recommend this foundation but was hesitant because of price but being a beauty therapist myself, I thought I best give it a go and I’m so glad I did. It sits like a second skin and give you an overall flawless coverage, once it warms into the skin, you have a healthy radiance with little to no effort. My new fav !!
  41. Everyday Look

    Lilian

    This foundation is really lightweight and sheer, great for the 'no makeup' look but also very buildable!
  42. Love!!

    Jess

    Love love love this foundation. Gives a nice medium coverage but can be layered to a full coverage. Love the longevity too.
  43. Silky and natural looking

    Jayde

    I am so glad I spent the money on this foundation. Its so light (feels barely there) and looks so natural. Easy to apply to feels really silky and smooth. Its more of a LIGHT to MEDIUM coverage. Definitely not a FULL coverage foundation. I usually go over with a concealer or a little bit of the Estee Lauder Double wear on my red areas (Nose and Chin)
  44. Almost perfect

    aazzaa

    This looks so amazing and elegant on the skin, about medium coverage with a nice natural finish. The only cons are that the shade range is kind of confusing, and this does get quite oily for me.
  45. Not for me

    Lauren

    I bought this online after seeing my friend wear it and she looked GLOWY. For me however it is very matte and makes me skin look dry. Won't be swapping form Nars sheer glow for this, especially at $100

  49. very lightweight

    Cath

    This foundation is divine, it doesn't look like your wearing anything at all. It is good for photos or for a really natural look! It doesn't offer much coverage though.
  50. Super smooth

    Cherie

    I love this foundation, it has great coverage and makes the skin look super smooth! I’m now on my second bottle.
  51. Silky and no makeup look

    Jayde

    One of my favourite foundations it’s so light and sheer looking. I still have to use a concealer with it because it is sheer/light.
  52. Light on the skin

    Amy

    It's my everyday foundation! It feels light on the skin, has a dewy finish and is medium coverage!
  53. flawless

    ashley wild

    this foundation gives a flawless, glowy, natural base. it still shows my freckles but creates an even tone. I forget im wearing it! It is very expensive though and I alternate with another foundation because of it.
  54. Perfect colour

    Sasha

    In my opinion the colour of the foundation is what makes it so good. The shade 5.5 is perfect for my skin when I have a tan on. It has a very watery consistency which makes applying and blending very easy. The coverage is light-medium in my opinion, and the finish is 'natural', leaning slightly towards glowy.
  55. Holy grail foundation!

    Issy

    Such an amazing non-comedogenic foundation which doesn't feel heavy on the skin and sinks into your skin. Buildable to full coverage or can be applied lightly for a sheer wash of colour. Only downside is the price-point, but the quality is amazing.
  56. Foundation was interesting

    Alexandra

    I found it just didn't sit well on my skin. I tried with primer, without and in different combinations of brush or sponge but it just didn't turn out how I was expecting.

    It looks cracked and dry on my skin.
  57. Great coverage

    Maya

    Great amount of coverage and leaves the skin looking and feeling glowy and supple.
  58. Occasion wear

    Jenna

    Although this foundation is extremely expensive, it does give you a luxurious finish. I would never use this everyday but definitely save it for special occasions where you need to photograph flawless!

  60. Absolutely worth every penny - best foundation I've ever used!

    Gracey

    I spent over a month watching review after review of this product, but was worried about spending $100 on a foundation. I have very pale skin but it is warm toned, and I have found many foundations in the past leave me looking orange and don't get the yellow tone of my skin right. I eventually went and got a tester and tried it on my skin - and BOY was I blown away. This foundation looks like my s...

On my normal to dry skin, this foundation sets down well and does not need a setting powder over the top. My other favourite foundation is the Make-up F...

  63. Amazingly silky smooth

    Kat

    I purchased luminous silk foundation a week ago, and must say I’m not disappointed. Although my skin is combination and normally stick to full coverage foundations, this foundation is amazing. So smooth and silky and 4.5 completely matches my skin tone. It feels like I’m no wearing foundation at all, but can layer it where I need it more.
  64. not worth the price

    john

    This is very expensive, especially for how much product you get, I also found it to be a bit cakey looking
  65. Great Hydrating Foundation

    Jackie

    A great hydrating and buildable foundation. The only downside is I feel like it isn't as long wearing but I still love this foundation. Colour 6.5 is the perfect Olive undertone.
  66. Good natural coverage

    Brittany

    This was my first time using this foundation and it is amazing! Gives me face full coverage while also have a nice natural dew look. Would recommend!
  67. Effortless glow

    Lilian

    A little goes a long way with this foundation! it is very light and you hardly feel like you have anything on.

    Rachel

    I used to use Chanel Vita Lumiere Acqua, however wanted to change it up. This product was recommended to me and it does not disappoint!

    I have very dry skin and this does not show my dry patches, looks natural and has buildable coverage.

    I find this formula blurs and makes it look like you have a filter on!
  70. Lovely texture

    Chinchila

    This foundation is a really nice texture and goes on well , unfortunately i purchased a shade too dark so I’ll probably buy a lighter one to mix in for the winter.

  72. The Silkiest

    Julia

    LOVE this foundation! I've been using it for a good few years now and find I just keep coming back to it. It still allows your skin to breathe and look like skin while providing a nice, clean coverage. I also feel as though it isn't bad for my skin in anyway as I have felt with other chemical filled foundations. A bit more on the pricey side but worth every cent!
  73. Best foundation

    Katelyn

    This foundation is so silky smooth and beautiful on the skin!! Its got medium coverage that is buildable and an amazing light weight texture that makes you feel like you're wearing nothing.
  74. Over-rated

    Ali

    I always hear so many good reviews about this foundation however, it did not work well on my skin type. I have normal to oily skin and am prone to breakouts, it did not cover my acne scars and the product completely faded by the end of the day. Definitely get a sample before buying as it is quite expensive.
  75. Silky like it’s name.........

    Chrissie

    Love this top quality foundation!!! Provides a natural flawless cover. Unlike alot of other foundations it feels weightless on your skin.
  76. Silky smooth and weightless

    Jay

    This foundation felt so weightless on my skin. Almost melts in and barely notice it. It’s is a sheer light coverage and can be built a little bit maybe to a medium coverage.
  77. Absolute favourtie!

    Laura

    I have been using this for a year now, and It has become my favourite foundaiton I have used.
    Even though it leaves a glowy finish and I have normal-oily skin, I use a mattifying primer and it doesn't leave me oily through out the day.
    Definitely recommend it!
  78. Amazing Foundation

    stirona

    If you don't like that heavy, full on coverage look and are used to cc/bb creams and tinted moisturisers - this is the foundation for you! I love to use this on days where I am going from day-to-night, or for events and nights out.
    It's got a beautiful natural, satin finish (not too glowy) but you can add extra glow depending on your occasion.
  79. Finally trying this beautiful foundation!

    Miranda

    I've wanted to try this for years and the recent offer with a $20 gift voucher seemed the perfect opportunity!

    The foundation is beautiful. It applies easily and has a fairly seamless coverage. Glad I finally took the plunge!
  80. So silky

    Kasey

  81. Flawless finish

    Emily

    This is awesome, gives such a glowy flawless finish to my skin. Expensive but worth it. The bottle is gorgous
  82. Nice but expensive

    Marina

    I wanted to love this foundation but I like a much fuller coverage and this isn't what I'd call full coverage. It is quite a runny formula and doesn't have the staying power I'd like. If you are after a light coverage look than this is very nice. Not for anyone with blemishes or would like to cover up imperfections, the coverage is too light. Hefty price tag too
  83. my go to!!!

    Laura w

    This is a beautiful foundation, I love the packaging! The product feels amazing and there isnt an overwhelming smell to it at all. I have oily-normal skin and it doesn't break me out
  84. Still amazing

    Maree

    For the past 10 years I have come and gone from this foundation. But in my eyes it’s still the top one for me. It’s gorgeous and natural. It gives a beautiful glow while making your skin look amazing

  86. BEST of the BEST

  87. GOAT

    Kylan

    My most used foundation on clients! I love this one.. great for sheer-medium and can be built up to be quite a good coverage. I also mix it in with other foundations. Glowing and fresh finish which is super comfortable on the skin. My favourite shades are 3, 6 (for green based tan), 6.5 (for most other tans), 9 and 12!
  88. Perfect

  91. WOW

    Dancinqueen

    I have tried and bought many high end foundations, but this one is my favourite, The colour match is perfect and applies so beautiful. I recommend this foundation before trying any other. Expensive but soo worth the price
  92. Wish I never discovered this because I love it but its so expensive

    Brucey

    It really is the silk on the skin. So lightweight and a little goes a very long way. It lasts a very long time and it feels like I am wearing nothing the entire time I am wearing it. But it is so pricey that it makes me sad... Like I definitely will repurchase it but it's just an expensive addiction.
  93. Love!

    Ava

    Beautiful foundation, I have oily-normal skin and does not break me out. No over whelming fragrance.

    Tia

    This is my go to product for a night out and it gives a luminous and beautiful finish on my acne prone skin
  96. Luminous silk

    Maaloula

    The best foundation I’ve ever tried. It’s the one foundation I always go back to and leaves a very natural, non cakey finish. Luminous silk isn’t a full coverage foundation, I’d say it’s medium coverage but leaves a beautiful slightly dewy finish. Definitely will repurchase
  97. Holy grail

    Ash

    Great sheer coverage, does not look cakey. Looks like skin rather than makeup however the coverage is not high, would still need to use a fair amount of concealer to cover a pimple.
    If you like NARS sheer glow than this foundation is perfect for you

    This foundation glides on. With a good primer and highlighter you will be looking flawless AF

  100. Worth your Pennies

    Alice Feez

    This product initially wasn't my love, I found it different from other foundations to work with. But the end result is just divine. My skin has never looked so good. I'm all about the my skin but better look. And it just does that superbly.
