Super lightweight and silky smooth but provides great coverage and doesn't feel like its caked on your face. A great everyday foundation but I can really build it up for evenings too
Most Helpful Criticism
I was expecting this to be very good but my colour isn't right and I have to mix it with other foundations to get the right colour. It is full coverage so would only use this for a night time event or occasion as it seems too heavy for daytime.
Like it but don't love itI expected a lot from this foundation after all the rave reviews. I even tried two samples of this before buying because I wanted to be sure, and even then I kept expecting more from this product. It's nice and has a nice, satin finish that does look like your skin but better (what I go for in foundation). I'm just finding that it's better for night time rather than day time wear, it just wears better and lasts a bit longer. Would recommend, but think I prefer other foundations to this.
Okay foundationI was expecting this to be very good but my colour isn't right and I have to mix it with other foundations to get the right colour. It is full coverage so would only use this for a night time event or occasion as it seems too heavy for daytime.
Lovely, lightweight and naturalSuper lightweight and silky smooth but provides great coverage and doesn't feel like its caked on your face. A great everyday foundation but I can really build it up for evenings too
Medium coverage foundationThis is hands down the best foundation I have ever used and would recommend it to anyone. It looks so natural on my skin I can put it on light on some days to correct my skin or build it for a more medium to full coverage on nights out. Its so sheer and dewy!
GreatGood foundation, bit over priced but definitely full coverage and blends nicely on the skin!
Not for my oily tzone and dry cheeksI prefer the estee double wear for my oily tzone + dry cheeks. This is more for nornal to dry skin people who want a dewy glassy look
Giorgio armani silk foundationBeen using this foundation...and its so good .so smooth and silky .. just the colour still too pale for me... i'm still need looking for the right colour and i hope i can find it soon..
Sheer coverage dreamThis foundation has become a staple in my everyday routine, it provides a beautiful sheer coverage, and is reasonably long wearing, and comes in a great range of shades and tones to suit my skin colour year round.
Amazing!The only foundation I use!! Great for someone wanting a full dewy finish!
HGMy holygrail. This is the only foundation that can help me achieve the "glass skin" look. I have oily skin and this really controls the shine.
Best foundation everI just love it ! Looks so natural and smooth on my skin.
High quality foundation!
Gem!This foundation has a satin finish that makes you feel like you've applied an Instagram filter! It's light, breathable and leaves my dry to normal skin feeling fresh and never cakey.
As good as they all say!I bought this with the hope that it will live up to the expectations that all of the makeup artists I follow on Instagram speak of it... and it did just that! The way it sits so seamlessly on my skin, which is not perfect at all is just amazing. I have combination to dry skin on a good day and the foundation does not cake on the dry patches that I have and covers my imperfections so well. Although the price is nasty the product is definitely worth every cent. 10/10 .. I would recommend
BeautifulThis foundation looks so effortless on my face and I love it. It covers everything too.
over hyped!!I have given this foundation so many chances and it just doesn't work for my dry skin. It holds onto every dry patch and makes my skin look like I haven't exfoliated. So disappointed considering the reviews I had read and heard. Definitely not worth the $100 price tag, I do not recommend this product.
Such a good foundationLove this foundation so much it doesn’t make me break out at all and is really good for oily skin it doesn’t make my face dry out or the oil come through it it’s so so good I love it so much
Feels like wearing nothingBeautiful light weight foundation. Blends in and covers so well with my skin that it looks like im 'barely wearing any foundation'.
The bestHave been using this for years now. Only foundation that makes my skin feel like literal silk. My oily skin doesn’t feel like it’s taking off the foundation either. It’s such Hugh coverage but can also be blended to low
AmazingThis is one of the best foundations on the market. It leaves your complexion looking flawless, without being high coverage. I find the high coverage foundations can look too cakey, whereas this foundation achieves a full coverage without looking cakey. It can be quite a light coverage or you can build it up. Also lasts a long time and I don't find I need to touch up. Worth the cost!
Not what i expectedI REALLY wanted to love this foundation because I have super dry skin but it accentuated every dry patch even though I was well moisturised. Also the coverage was not great. When i tried to build it up it looked and felt heavy and I still couldn't get the coverage I wanted. Was really disappointed with this as it is not cheap!
Didn't live up to the expectationI wonder if I'm using this wrong. I find the smell of this fragrance to be quite sunscreeny. I definitely mix it with my other foundations as I find that by itself you have to work quickly and can become patchy on my skin.
However the finish is amazing once you really work with it.
Light but greatThis is a great foundation that I have been using for years and love it
NaturalThis is a gorgeous natural looking foundation with buildable coverage.
My Holy Grail FoundationI absolutely love this foundation, I’ve been buying it for 7 years and use it as my special occasion/going out foundation. People actually give me compliments when I wear it, and tell me I look “glowing” and “radiant”... it is the foundation that many makeup artists and bloggers rave about and I know why! It’s light, but buildable coverage, and when set with the Giorgio Armani translucent powder it lasts me from morning to night.
Lightweight beautiful glowI really enjoyed using this foundation it is lightweight and gives an all over glow to the face, definitely suits the name “ luminous silk”. It has a light-medium coverage that it buildable but the only downfall is the price point.
Natural finish, light feelI have acne prone, sensitive, combination skin. I tried multiple foundations before this one including MAC Mineralise and all NARS variations - I found that they all showed up my dry skin in winter and were either too heavy or smudged easily. This one has a super light feel and blends into my skin very well. If you do have blemishes you will need to use concealer as the coverage is medium at best, but that works for me!
Good coverage and gives great skin texture and glowI love this foundation! It gives a smooth and glowing finish. I personally think it gives a perfect medium coverage without leaving skin cakey or dried
Lightweight and DewyThis foundation is fantastic. The way it applies to the skin is like velvet. It has such a nice finish once blended out.
Worth every centLight weight on the skin felt like wearing nothing. Coverage was a light-medium but could be built. blended in well and comes with a pump and really cute bottle!!
FlawlessThis foundation gives me a flawless look and is a perfect colour match for me too
Lovely coveringThis is a lovely foundation that’s great for sensitive skin. It provides good coverage that lasts all day. You are definitely paying for the brand with this foundation though. I’ve also used Estée Lauder’s double wear nude foundation and get the same results for half the price.
AmazingThis is by far my favourite ever foundation. It can be used lightly applied with fingers for a sheer result, or used with a brush for a full coverage. I used the colour match system and found my perfect shade.
LOVE ITSuch a good foundation, perfect coverage and such a light weight feel, feels so soft on my face and covers all my imperfections
Still the bestHave been using this foundation for a few years now. Tried other foundations for a change but keep on reverting back to Luminous silk. Lightweight, medium coverage (which you can build up) and most of all makes you skin glow. A classic
Wow!This makes my skin look stunningly flawless! It leaves it smooth and glowy without having the makeup look. It looks incredibly natrual and healthy
AmazingI am really happy with this product, it is long lasting and whenever I wear it I always have comments that my skin looks glowing. I really like that you can build on the product so can wear it to work or to a party at the weekend! V.happy customer
AMAZINGThis always seems to be what I go back to! Really really great coverage but also looks so natural and pretty. Really worth the hype and money!
10/10I have tried a lot of foundations and this is by far my favourite, well worth the spend! Love the packaging and bottle it comes in and always leaves a flawless look.
The bestHonestly this is the best foundation you can buy, it feels so sheer but gives a great medium coverage, this is the ONLY foundation I will buy
Sheer and NaturalBeautiful sheer and natural coverage.
SilkLike the name this honestly feels like smooth silk to apply. By far the best foundation I have ever used (comparing to what I used to use: Nars and Estee Lauder)
A really good foundationI've tried heaps of foundations and this is definitely one of my favourites. I've got mature late 30's skin and getting harder to find something that doesn't make me look older, this is easy to apply with fingers. Blends well, doesn't sit in pores and doesn't exaggerate fine lines.
Beautiful silky feelThe product is really beautiful and easy to apply. Does not look cakey and is very skin like.
Beautifully natural and lightweight!This foundation feels like it's barely on my skin and gives me dewy, natural-looking skin (a much better version of my skin, though!).
Perfect for combination or dry skin but I wouldn't recommend for oily skin.
It is perfect if you don't like heavy, full-coverage foundation but have a bit more to hide than a BB cream can handle. Very build-able as well.
Feels like a silky dream when I set it with the RCMA powder.
Like wearing nothingWhen I apply this it honestly feels like I'm wearing nothing. Its so light and silk, I LOVE IT!
Love!Love this foundation; it’s not cakey at all and gives a luminous look without being shiny
Sheer coverageThis foundation felt weightless on my skin which is what I love about it. It is a light coverage and can be built to a medium coverage but feels so nice on the skin. Doesn't feel heavy like most foundations. The shade I purchased also blended perfectly!
Light weight but buildable coverageI purchased this foundation as my NARS sheer glow wasn't offering me long lasting coverage in the office. This foundation has great staying power and manages to stay matte during the day. Unsure if worth the price.
Well worth the investment!I have been using this foundation for years and years so I was thrilled when I found out Adore Beauty was going to stock it.
I have mature/ normal type skin and I find this light weight foundation is suitable for my skin type. It subtly evens out flaws while keeping my complexion looking natural. Definitely worth the price!
NaturalSilky smooth and natural looking. Worth the money. I usually use the Estee Lauder double wear but since converted to this one. It is very light weight but also sheer to medium coverage.
Beautiful foundationThis makes me look super natural and flawless. Such a natural finish. If you can work it up to full coverage too.
Super lightweight and buildableThe price initially scared me away from this after seeing celeb makeup artists and dermatologists recommended it. I used about 2 bottles then went back to Nars purely for price, but had to come back to this because it's honestly the best foundation I've ever used. It's so amazingly lightweight, doesn't break me out, super buildable and works well with so many products. HG foundation for sure.
Still goodThe formula is amazing - somehow it dries down to skin well but still looks dewy. Normally to achieve the same finish my foundation sits on top of my skin oilyish and smears in the day. Not with this. Highly recommend.
PERFECT FOR SPECIAL OCCASIONSThis foundation is STUNNING!!!!
It does not feel heavy at all and has the most beautiful finish!
It does not look cakey at all and blends beautifully!
My go to for special occasions! If it wasn't for the super expensive price I would use on a daily basis!
Blends well and looks naturalWhen this foundation first arrived I thought the colour looked way too light for me even just looking at it from the bottle and when I applied it, it just fit right into my skin and looked amazing. By far the most natural looking foundation I have used to date. It is a very light coverage and I built it up to a medium but its so worth it because it just sits so well on the skin and looks like your skin but better? Doesn't have that obvious foundation makeup look. Really light and dewy.
No makeup, makeup look!Such a flawless foundation. Really has that 'No Makeup' look. Its subtle and light and blends easy onto the face with a brush or beauty blender. I use this as my day time foundation mainly because its a light-medium coverage but it seems to cover all imperfections. If I have had a breakout I do usually need to add some concealer also. I have removed all my previous foundations from my kit and only use this one now - unless I have an event to go to at night I will alternate with the 'Estee Lauder Double wear foundation' for a more full coverage.
GreatNice foundation. Set really well and applied so nicely. Definitely like the name: silk. So happy with it. The colour matched perfectly too.
WORTH EVERY PENNYThis is by far the BEST foundation I have ever used. You get an amazing finish even using your fingers for application. Now, if not set with powder it WILL transfer!
For no makeup makeup this is your secret weapon!
Stunning finish - worth every pennyThis foundation is the best I’ve ever used. A gorgeous light satin finish on the skin but covers everything. Wears well and I don’t even powder
My skin but FLAWLESS!Glow glow glow - this foundation is silky, weightless and makes skin look radiant and natural!! Love it!
Beautiful & QualityHappy with the quality of this foundation. Looked beautiful and blended well. Came with a pump unlike almost every other foundation (so it should for the price). I very rarely find a foundation I like enough to re-purchase and I think I definitely will be for this one. The packaging and bottle look amazing too so thats a bonus.
Feels so light on the skinHonestly feels like im not even wearing makeup - so lightweight. Feels really lovely on the skin and looks so natural and blended in. I would class this a sheer or light foundation and use it for day time. Its not a full coverage foundation. Really has that no makeup, makeup look to it - very dewy.
Sheer coverageI have never spent so much on a foundation before but so glad I did with this one. I have fair skin and got the shade 4 (light) and it didn't disappoint. It was really silky and easy to apply and the colour was very natural looking. It also felt like I was wearing nothing. In terms of coverage it was very sheer to light. Could be built to a medium coverage. Comes with a pump too. I was surprised to find it doesn't have SPF because it smells like sunscreen.
Silkyness & Flawfless FoundationEfficient and amazing as its name! It creates a silky & flawless foundation. It makes the skin looks healthy and naturally glow.
Worth it!A natural beautiful coverage! This foundation is a must. I have acne prone skin and it didn’t break me out at all! 5 *****
Best foundationThis foundation is luxurious and beautiful - it is so easy and light to blend on the face and gives the most natural look! It does not have SPF so photographs well. It is definitely expensive but I have not been able to find something better so will continue to buy. I use colour 5.75 and it is a more yellow-tone. The colour numbers are confusing to me..
Great foundationI watched all the hype on YouTube and read all the glowing reviews so really wanted to try this foundation out. I have to say that it took me a few goes to get the application right. Some primers work better than others and the foundation takes time to set. Once it does, it certainly gives a beautiful finish and so far has lasted a good 15 hrs with barely a touch of powder at the 12 hr mark. Covers well, but again allow to set before adding more.. All in all a lovely foundation though expensive
Holy grail foundationI don't think I could ever be without this foundation in my life. Over the years I have tried just about every low end and high end foundation and none of them have been as good as this! It offers just the right amount of coverage for my skin, so that my freckles are still showing through but my imperfections are not. It doesn't dry out my skin either or make me oily throughout the day. I have combination skin and it definitely doesn't accentuate my dry patches or make my oily areas worse! It photographs amazingly and it lasts all day for me without touch ups. It is well worth the price tag in my opinion!
Light and natural finishVery light formula ,comes out runny when you pump it out
but when it hit my face i was surprise by the velvet feel
It dries down Satin -matte finish and it is quite lightweight on the face
The colour shade selection is quite limited compared to other brands out there
But for the price i would only use in special occasions, since
it would run out quite quickly if it was use everyday
If you have blemishes this would not cover it alone, would have to use concealer
Professional MUA go-toI've been working as a MUA for 10 years now in everything from editorial, commercial and bridal work internationally. Armani Luminous silk really is my go-to for a holy grail foundation, medium to buildable, long wearing and natural looking. I keep #4, #6.5 & #8.75 in my kit and mix between colours. You'll love it.
Great but not full coverageI wanted to try this after all the rave reviews - it is good, but I prefer fuller coverage. I wear this when I'm going for a very light look but for daily wear I prefer the Power Fabric
Incredibly flawless coverageWhat an amazing foundation. High coverage and flawless finish.
I use this at night and on special occasions due to it being so expensive but it is just beautiful. Highly recommend.
Best Foundation EverI am obsessed with this foundation. I was using dior skin nude serum and I loved the light weight sheer coverage that it gave, however, it oxidized and I started turning slightly orange throughout the day. With this, I still get light weight coverage that I cannot feel and it does not oxidize. It leaves my face looking natural, smooth, and it lasts through my 14+ hour work days.
SOOTHING & CALMING FOUNDATIONThis foundation lives up to its name and is smooth as silk. It is so calming and soothing for my ageing skin. It magically hides any redness of my rosacea which gives me my confidence back.
OhhhhhhhhhhhmagawdA MUA used this foundation on my combo skin. And ohhhmagawd. That's all I have to say. The finish is satin matte, lightweight on the skin, but not gross and definitely not cakey looking. I love this foundation. If you have combo skin definitely use an oil controlling primer on your oily bits. Photographs perfectly, no flashback, will 1000000% purchase again. New holy grail!!
Feels like air!I absolutely love the light-weight texture of this foundation. I have been using a brush to work this in to the skin and it gives a light to medium coverage and feels like I'm wearing nothing. On days when I need a little extra coverage I've used my fingers to work a bit in to my skin under the eyes and around the nose before brushing the remainder of my face.
I also like the very subtle fragrance in this product which is noticeable while brushing on but not once set.
Beautiful finishSuch a beautiful foundation, finish is amazing, skin looks perfect and glowy. Love this one. Not too good in flash photography however. Smells lovely too!
Beautiful light-medium foundationI have very oily, acne prone skin and this foundation surprised me. I have struggled with blemishes on my cheek area so I wouldnt suggest that this covers them entirely, but it is most certainly buildable. I actually mix this foundation in with my estee lauder double wear foundation sometimes, if I am after more coverage and it is a beautiful combination. I would highly reccomend you use a primer under this foundation, I pair mine with the Hourglass Vanish Primer and it tends to get oily after about the 6hr mark- which isn't bad for me at all!
So gorgeousThis foundation is light and silky on the skin leaving you with THE MOST flawless face. I personally like a very natural finish and this foundation does that beautifully. It is very pricey but in my opinion, worth every penny!
Amazing!!!!This foundation is everythingggg. It can be super light and natural but can be built up to a night out colour which I love. Only down side is that I’m slightly in between colours which means I need 2 shades (it’s worth it for this foundation)!!
Beautiful FoundationThis is an absolutely beautiful foundation! I have recently ran out and am working up the courage to invest in another bottle. It is worth the cost however, as it sits so beautifully on the skin.
Best foundation to date!I'm 34 and have tried SO many different foundations In the hunt for the perfect one.
Chanel, Nars, you name it I've tried it!
I have sensitive normal to dry skin, and olive complexion. I don't like wearing concealer or too much makeup. I wanted a make-up that was flawless, evening out pigmentation, but also doesn't look like you ware wearing make-up. This foundation does all that, and the consistency is beautiful. It is buildable and doesn't feel like you have a film on your skin. Well worth the extra $$$
Excellent on dry combo ageing skinI am nc15 and use 4.5, it’s a good match.
Lovely foundation that lives up to the hype - it blurs pores and lines and stays put a full work day. I keep coming back to it.
One of my favourite foundationsThis looks like skin, not overly dewy just a natural, healthy, luminous glow. My preferred foundation for events and nights out. It’s a solid medium coverage. The warm undertones in this range are magnificent, not too orange. Expensive but definitely worth the price!
Radiant and glow foundationI really liked this foundation and found the colour matching system worked well. I found the foundation to be light weight and luminous. Unfortunately I do have sensitive skin and had a reaction to it but the amazing team helped me resolve it super promptly. Amazing product but unfortunately wasn’t right for my skin.
100% would recommendI have used this foundation for about 2 years and I cannot go back to any other foundation. During these two years, I have tried other hyped up bases but have always gone back to this foundation. The price point may be high but one bottle lasts me around 4-6 months and I use it every day. I love that I can use less on a beauty blender for an everyday look or I can layer the foundation for a dramatic full base for a night time look. I have dry skin and an oily t-zone, and I just set my foundation with translucent powder on my t-zone and it stays for hours!
MUST TRY!I have to admit I only tried this because of all the reviews (especially after I found out Kim K uses it) I was skeptical especially given the price tag but after some hesitation I tried it and have to say that it is the best I have used EVER. hands down.
If you are able too, this is a MUST.
The best foundation I've EVER tried!If you're after a medium buildable foundation that always looks glowy and flawless look no further. Luminous silk blends like a dream, is a perfect colour match for me and doesn't crease or sink in to my pesky smile lines. Will definitely be re-purchasing!
Lives up to its incredible reputation!If you want beautiful, glowing skin and even, buildable coverage then this foundation is for you! It feels lovely on the skin and has great staying power! It doesn’t draw attention to my fine lines and hides my old acne marks and pigmentation as well as any full coverage foundation. It can be layered up for more coverage without losing its light and luminous texture. I adore the feeling of wearing this foundation and love how it looks like an airbrushed version of my skin in both photos and natural light. I have light to medium skin and often use fake tan, and have found the shade 5.5 to be perfect for me - this looks so natural and I just add bronzer depending on my level of tan!
AMAZING!This is the best foundation I have ever used. Silky smooth and flawless, leaves a beautiful dewy finish but not too dewy.
I mix 6.5 and 8, depending on my tan and they are perfect!
WORTH. EVERY. CENT!
SuperbThere is absolutely no foundation like this one. Goes on beautifully and gives the most radiant glow. I have bought 6.5 and 8 depending on my skin and tan at the time. I cannot fault it. WORTH EVERY SINGLE CENT!
An oldie but a goodieThis does make the skin look amazing. I use this when i am going to events that don't require a long wear however because i do find it can tend to melt off slightly on my skin. But does look amazing for approximately 5 hours or so. Use the right primer and powder and you will be set!
Luminous!I have dry skin and foundation normally sticks to my dry spots however this foundation blends in so easily! It also makes makes my skin looks fresh and dewy which I love. I do not believe this foundation is full coverage so on a night out I will mix it with a high coverage foundation.
Worth the investment!I have combination skin; oily t zone and sensitive cheeks. This foundation has a very versatile coverage from light with fingertips to medium-full with a brush. Beautiful glowing finish that lasts all day!
Great product and serviceI had already had a few samples of this to try it out at Myers and haven’t found a better one since. It looks great for hours and doesn’t make me look Cakey or dry. For me it’s worth the money. I had intended to buy it with afterpay on the Myers website, but they Charged for shipping and if they didn’t charge for shipping I still wouldn’t buy it because there’s a minimum spend of $100 for afterpay and the foundation is $99. I remembered the last time I ordered from Adorebeauty and how great the service was. They not only do afterpay under $100, free shipping, fast shipping( 1.5 days for me) and throw in free samples, they also through in a timtam. Best service I have ever received. The website is also great and easy to use. 1000% better than beauty bay. Well done
Gorgeous flawless light finish!As soon as I put it on for the first time I felt justified for 'lashing out' on a rather expensive foundation. It feels as light as a feather and the coverage is flawless but not at all heavy. I don't wear a lot of makeup and like a light coverage, and this is perfect. It smooths away unevenness and patchiness perfectly.
Mixed feelingsThis foundation feels lightweight on the skin, even when built up to medium coverage. I like the fact that it doesn’t have spf for photographic purposes. In saying this, I prefer something with a little more coverage and found that the wear wasn’t great either. Won’t be repurchasing.
GorgeousVery pricey but will give you that Kardashian flawless finish
Light Flawless FoundationI’m not one for heavy foundations and this one definitely ticks the box for a great coverage but being light at the same time. The downsides are that a) it is a bit on the exxy side $$$ and b) hard to find just one shade that is a perfect match for my skin so do need to mix it. Overall it blends really well, is NOT cakey and hardly feels like you’ve got anything on :)
THE BESTI am obsessed with the foundation. It is the only foundation that doesn't sit in the creases, doesn't move with the grease - it really is the foundation made for everyone! It gives the most beautiful sheen
