On a recent trip through Dublin airport, I decided to treat myself and buy some Giorgio Armani luminous silk foundation, I’d heard so much about it, I couldn’t help myself!! The price at Dublin airport was €34 for a 30ml bottle which I thought was a stonkingly good price! So excited was I by the product and price, that I decided to get three shades for my kit. The product promises a ‘silky, lightweight, fluid foundation. Blurs away imperfections without masking… Hydrading, non-greasy, long lasting formula. Velvety, luminous natural finish on the skin. Will not crease or cake.’ Well how could one resist!!
I have to say I am really happy that I bought it, it goes on like a dream with good coverage, although admittedly I am a layer and a half type of gal. It has pretty good staying power even on a hot sweaty day (we do occasionally get them in Ireland!!). As promised, it doesn’t crease and does produce a luminous glow to the skin. And if all that wasn’t reason enough to run out and buy some, the range of shades is fantastic to boot!
Only negative: Giorgio Armani claim that this product is for all skin types. I would have to disagree! If your skin is quite dry I wouldn’t recommend this product, it has a tendency to sit and clog around any obvious dryness, you need well mositurized and hydrated skin for this product to work it’s best. It’s a tad greasy for me, I was wearing it for about a week and did notice that I was springing some small white heads!! I do really love this product but it’s not an everyday use product for me.
Overall, this product pretty much does what it says on the tin!
