Armani Luminous Silk Foundation: Is It Worth The Hype?

I’m very loyal to the foundations I love, and at the moment am not really wearing much foundation at all. However, saying this, I have been on the hunt for a more full coverage base for events, and for those days when I want my makeup to last all day. I’ve done my research, and for years have been umming and ahhing over the Armani Luminous Silk foundation, so decided to bite the bullet and get it.

It’s one of the most talked about foundations in the beauty business, so I’m here to tell you if it really is all it’s cracked up to be.

I didn’t know where to begin when figuring out what shade I was, so popped into Selfridges and asked the girl at the Armani counter. She was so lovely and incredibly helpful. I couldn’t decide between shades 4 and 4.5. I decided 4 was probably best as I’m only tanned for about a month of the year. However, I was telling her how I have my graduation the day I get back from my holiday so will be tanned then. So, she gave me a sample of the darker shade to use for graduation day, which was amazing. If you want a sample and they don’t offer, just ask. They will be more than happy to give you one.

I’ve been using the foundation for a few weeks now and completely love it. It’s so buildable, so when I want a lighter base, it looks like I’m only wearing a BB cream or tinted moisturiser. Yet, when I built it up to a fuller coverage it still looks flawless and not cakey at all.

I’ve been trying a few different ways to apply it, and have settled on two. The trusty damp beauty blender never ceases to perform, however, isn’t always the most practical if you’re in a hurry. For the days when I don’t have hours to get ready I like to use the largest brush from the New Look Oval brush set, which so many brands do versions of.

The longevity is amazing too. As someone with very oily skin, I struggle to find a foundation which lasts all day. This, although budges a bit, is the most long lasting foundation I’ve found yet.

I think it’s safe to say this foundation absolutely is worth the hype and has lived up to all expectations I had. Definitely a must have in my makeup collection.
