Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation Review

Effie XuReviewed By: Rating: ★★★★½ (4.6) Updated On: Aug 5, 2014

Looking for an all-day liquid foundation that hides skin acnes, black spots, and blotches in the face? While there are many foundations which actually hide these blemishes, most become too shiny or oily in the later hours of the day. Few others which actually work are very heavy and uncomfortable to put on. There is always a tendency to wipe out the foundation. There is also a fear that the foundation may give in and melt in the humidity. However, Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation helps the skin to remain radiant and fresh even after hours of its application. Find out more features of this product in the following paragraphs.


The packaging of Giorgio Armani products are all classic and elegant. Available in 1.7 oz or 30ml thick glass bottle, the foundation container looks neat and handy. There is a dark colored large cap which needs to be opened to reach the dispenser. The hygienic dispenser ends in a pump that can be effortlessly used by any novice user. About 1.5 pumps are usually needed for a normal face treatment. There are various shades of this foundation and one can easily figure out the hue of the product by checking the color of the liquid from the transparent glass.

The texture of the foundation is more like a liquid which readily flows on the skin. It is extremely light and non-reactive. The oil-free liquid is made from Micro-fil technology where the ingredients are mixed in special machines or blenders to give a light, weightless feel. The fluid is silky that glides through the skin, giving a buildable medium coverage.

Just one application is required for the entire day. The foundation with its anti-aging and hydrating properties go deep into the cells. The skin dries up quickly and the user does not feel as if a foundation has been applied. The sheer foundation does not reveal that a solution has been applied on the skin.

The foundation is not really scented – or, it was not meant for being scented. There is also no long lasting smell as well when the foundation is put on. However, users may get a peculiar whiff of the foundation. Those who like it will be able to enjoy using the product. However, some users are too picky about scented skincare products and the whiff may actually put them off.


There is a subtle glow in the skin when the user daubs a little amount in a damp cotton ball and massages it on the skin. The skin tones up but it does not feel dry. The skin feels hydrated and soft from within. There is a slight matte finish and little shine. Together, the properties work wonders for the face that is ready for a party. Although it may appear to be a light coverage foundation, it is so long lasting that the blemishes are not seen after 10-16 hours of the application.

The Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk foundation works well for dry skin as well as for the oily skin. For the dry face, the fluid seeps into the skin and makes it dewy. It does not shimmer but gets hydrated. For oily skin type, the foundation absorbs excess oil and gives a matte finish. The natural finish with a luminous glow gives an attractive look even to a tired or worn-out face.

The skin becomes buoyant and velvety. The lightweight foundation does not show at all. It has anti-oxidants that remove skin radicals. It allows the natural collagens to replicate in the skin’s epidermal layers. The blemishes disappear as the skin becomes calmer.

There are Cellulose Gum, Nylon-12, Disodium Stearoyl Glutamate, Aluminum Hydroxide, Hexyl Cinnamal, and Cetyl PEG/PPG-10/1 in proper proportions. The elements are blended in specialized blender along with glycerin. There are many other hydrocarbons as well. The foundation also has Cyclopentasiloxane, Magnesium Sulfate, Linalool, and usual minerals. Some popular ingredients commonly available in foundations are iron oxides, mica, titanium dioxide, and ultramarines.


The cost is a major factor for buying this foundation. True, the foundation is made from a different technology and smoothen the skin. It is also comfortable to wear. However, a small bottle of 30ml costs more than $60. It is overpriced indeed. Many potential buyers would not like to spend such a whooping amount for a small foundation bottle.

Nonetheless, the foundation indeed changes the complexion and toning effect in the skin. So, for ladies who don’t mind the cost, the gorgeous Luminous Silk Foundation from Giorgio Armani can be a handy choice.
