Most Helpful Positive



I love this! I only use it for special occasions due to the price however your skin looks almost like silk when you wear it. The only negative is I find it drys quickly so you have to be quick when applying.

A little cakey


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!

  2. Beautiful finish

    Nicole M.

    This is my favourite foundation of all time... it gives a really natural, fresh look. I really like that I can also build it up for evening or special occasion when I need just a little bit more! Great value for money, it goes a long way.
  3. Great coverage


    I use 5.5 colour and absolutely love it. I find it gives me good covered, even for my pigmentation, and sits well on my skin. The foundation is prices but, in my opinion, is well worth it.
  4. 50/50


    while shade 6 is the best shade match I've ever found for my light-medium olive skin tone, the formula itself is a bit moody and can sometimes look great and can sometimes cling to all my dry patches. I find that I have to mix this in with a beauty oil to create a beautiful skin tint for everyday use that more consistently sits nicely on my skin, but I don't that should be the case with a $99 foundation.
  5. Silky skin


    Gorgeous foundation as you’d expect from Armani. This leaves skin looking airbrushed. I simply love it. It doesn’t get cakey and it’s a breeze to work with.
  6. Great foundation


    Such a fabulous foundation, so lovely. It’s very buildable and looks beautiful on my skin. I love the shade range too.
  7. I love it


    It's very natural on my face, although the colour is bright. Also, it's lightweight, which means it's smooth and comfortable on my skin. The only thing I dislike is the price. It's really expensive. But I still like it.
  8. Great Coverage


    Great full coverage foundation. Looks so smooth and silky on.
  9. Best foundation


    I love this foundation and have been using it for a couple of years. It’s easy to blend and nice coverage. Worth the price tag
  10. Best foundation

  12. High Quality


    A very high quality foundation. It looks so natural and smooth on my skin.
  13. Natural looking light coverage


    Love this foundation for days where I want a light to medium natural coverage. Barely feel it on!
  14. AMAZINNNGGGGG!!!!!!!!!


    This is one of the BEST foundations I have ever used (I have used many!)

    I only use this for special occasions as its quite pricey for everyday.

    It makes my skin look flawless and glowy (I prep my skin well before using too) and doesn't look or feel heavy at all.


    The only reason I give it 4 stars instead of 5 is due to the price.

  15. My dream foundation


    I have tried sooo many foundations over the years trying to find this. it is the perfect light-medium coverage, yet buildable for nights out/more formal occasions and just leaves my skin looking glowy. also feels incredible on the skin, like nothing I've tried before. expensive, but worth it as it is the foundation I've been searching for.
  16. Good but not for full coverage wearer's


    This is a lovely foundation for sheer to medium coverage seekers. I prefer a full coverage (like double wear) and thus the bottle ran out too quickly and I can't justify the price.
    Love the satin finish though.
  17. Game changer


    I cant go past this foundation. beautifully sheer yet evenly covers any imperfections. lats all day long and has a great range of colours. Bit pricey although a little goes a long way
  18. Stunning finish


    I have dry-leaning normal skin, but my T-zone gets oily throughout the day, so finding a foundation that works with all of that can be a bit of a challenge. I was shade matched for this foundation at a David Jones, and I'm glad I actually tried it in person at first, because I was matched as a 5.75, but online indicated that I would be a 5.5. For comparison, I also wear Hourglass Vanish Stick in Nude.

    Luminous Silk has a beautiful skin-like finish, and is medium coverage. I have old acne scarring texture around my cheeks, and can build it up a bit here for a fuller coverage, but I wouldn't recommend applying a thick layer all over the face. Around the nose, it will break apart a little if you build it up too much, but if you apply a thin layer it's perfect all day. I like using a Juno microfibre sponge best for this foundation, as a regular sponge sucks up way too much of the product, as it's quite thin in texture.
  19. Holy grail


    Holy grail foundation, it’s like liquid gold. Full, flawless coverage that lasts all day long
  20. Dewy, luminous foundation


    A couple of years ago I thought I would give this foundation a go after reading that so many make up artists use it. I love it! It’s dewy, luminous and I personally love wearing it in the summer as it’s not too thick and heavy. Originally I found it hard getting a good colour match however now they have bought out the extra shades it’s heaps better.
  21. For short wear times


    This foundation applies and looks amazing for the first 5 hours then it starts to melt off my skin. So i like this for special events that i know wont last long.
  22. Ride or Die


    After seeing so many MUA's with this in their kits i decided to give it a try after hunting for the perfect foundation for literally years and holy wow...
    I have dry skin, so anything to matte just makes me look really cakey and gross, this foundation sits on my skin beautifully and doesn't dry me out or get to oily during the day. It is a lighter coverage, but can be built up and allows your skin to look like skin.
    It is pricey. but it lasts a really long time, for every day use, I only need 1 - 1.5 pumps.

    If you're struggling to find your perfect foundation, this one is definitely worth a try!!
  23. My old faithful


    I recently decided to switch foundations after using luminous silk for over a year.. just to try something different. Wasn’t long till I bought a new bottle of luminous silk. Perfect coverage but not too heavy. If you want a full full coverage this might not be for you. This doesn’t crease or flake, and so easy to blend other products. Can’t go wrong
  24. Not over rated.


    Im like EMBARRASSED to have purchased this, its so expensive. People have said its overrated. Its overPRICED but not overrated for dry, dull skin. Im in the mirror admiring my glow. Its beautifying. A lot of colours available too, from many different tones for very fair. (Im SUUUPER fair and there are colours too light for me) to colours for non caucasian people! Hooray! It will never cling to flakes or emphasise texture and I find it can be built up for a good coverage. It really does have some very special luminosity and if you have dry skin don't hesitate. Also it is kind of invisible? You can pretend your skin is that gorgeous. Sixty eight thousand dollars though.
  25. My all time favourite


    I first tried this foundation as a sample four years ago. I have bought four bottles since and I just can’t go past it for finish, coverage.
  26. Fancy


    Very luxurious foundation and looks very natural, enough coverage
  27. THE BEST!!!!


    I cant go past this foundation. beautifully sheer yet evenly covers any imperfections. lats all day long and has a great range of colours. Bit pricey but and little goes a long way.
  28. Great for perfect skin - not suitable for acne prone


    This is a beautiful foundation for those requiring little coverage. Not great for oily skin types as it can get quite shiny after a few hours.
  29. Great


    This foundation feels silky and makes my skin look blurred and covered. Absolutely love it
  30. Treasure!


    This foundation is a dream to use. The silky, creamy, velvety texture leaves my dry to normal skin feeling fresh and never cakey and it blends like a damn dream!
  31. Love!


    This is everything I expected it to be...literally feels like silk. Good coverage, feels like my skin but better! Only downside is the price.
  32. Not for me


    This is one of the most hyped up foundations (probably because Kim K loves it) but unfortunately it does not work on me oily skin. It emphasises my pores and leaves me greasy. Also not long wearing on me. I was able to find a good shade match though and I do like the bottle.
  33. Heavenly silk, so natural, transforms me, this is new skin!


    Absolutely so natural and silky smooth, doesn't cake or get in creases. This literally is like a new skin which I apply and it doesn't even look like I am wearing make up. Worth every cent!
  34. Beautiful foundation


    This is absolutely beautiful! Very sheer but creates a very lovely and healthy looking skin! This is very expensive so I only use in on special occasions but I definitely recommend it
  35. Holy grail foundation


    Works perfect with my normal-oily skin type. Feels weightless and looks like you have a glow from within. It’s the perfect foundation if you love that fresh glow skin. Matches tan perfect shade 6.5
  36. New everyday foundation


    I have been wanting to buy this foundation for ages but the price tag always put me off. I finally decided to purchase and am so happy I did. I now use it for my everyday foundation. It glides on easily and has long wear for someone like me with an oily t zone. I usually set it with a loose powder. I wish it had the tiniest bit more coverage but for a medium coverage long lasting foundation this is a winner!
  37. Gold


    Totally in love with this foundation. Maintains coverage on my oily skin well
  38. Great product


    Feels so nice and light on skin and provides the right amount of coverage
  39. Always come back to this one!


    I am always on the hunt for the perfect foundation that I steer away to try other foundation ms but always find myself coming back to what truly is the best foundation. Yes price is a little steep but it is so worth it. Only let down is coverage could be a little bit more fuller because i find myself layering to get the coverage I need.


    This foundation honestly looks so sheer and natural on. Almost feels weightless on my skin and I forget I'm wearing foundation. Super dewy and just lovely. The first time I purchased this I struggled to justify spending so much on a foundation but I'm now onto my third time purchasing and wouldn't go back to any other foundation!!
  41. This foundation is Gold


    This is my 3rd re purchase of this foundation and having tried many, many, did I say many, other foundations over the time (I am in my 50s) I can honestly say that I only have eyes for this one... This foundation is a no brainier does the job, covers while making my skin feel silky and does not cake or make me feel that I can't wait to take my make up off... Do your self a favour try it...
  42. Great formula for dry skin


    Ive been to the DJ's counter 3 times to try to get the right colour (im a creamy light) and bought 4.75 in the end but its still not the right colour, so do try lots of shades before you buy. This product contains silicone so it sits well on dry skin and lasts all day.
  43. Does not suit me


    Many people say it is good but I don’t think it suits me
  44. Expensive but worth it


    This is on the pricey side but worth it. Blends so well onto my skin and lasts all day, I have oily skin and find this hide the shine
  45. The perfect foundation


    This is by far the best and most natural sitting foundation I have ever used on my skin.
  46. Best foundation


    Love this foundation! I've tried so many and this is definitely my holy grail. Flawless coverage without looking too heavy. No more looking orange.
  47. Holy Grail Foundation


    This foundation is amazing!!! It contains a really silky and lightweight formula. Leaves me with such a glowy and dewy finish.
  48. Silk in a bottle


    Silky and dewy. Provides full coverage but is so lightweight. Gives me a beautiful natural face!
  49. perfect coverage and perfect for dry skin


    this foundation is so stunning! It is perfect for dry skin, it hydrates it and doesn't dry it at what so ever! It makes it dewy, but doesn't leave it looking oily. The coverage is perfect and so buildable, you can use this foundation for an everyday natural look or a full glam look. I would recommend this to everyone, especially if you have dry skin!
  50. My skin (But better)


    This foundation is so natural looking and sheer that it makes me feel like I'm barely wearing anything but at the same time improves my skin and evens it out. Its very light and silky.
  51. a good product


    Colour 2 is suitable for people with fair skin. It looks bright and feels comfortable.I really like this one.
  52. Broke me out worse than ever!


    Wanted to love this, especially for being $99. Broke me out in the most painful pimples in my brow bone, chin, forehead and lips! Didn’t even look nice on the skin, accentuated all my pores and texture :(
  53. Like it but don't love it


    I 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.
  54. Okay foundation


    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.
  55. Lovely, lightweight and natural


    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
  56. Medium coverage foundation


    This 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!
  57. Great


    Good foundation, bit over priced but definitely full coverage and blends nicely on the skin!
  58. Not for my oily tzone and dry cheeks


    I 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
  59. Giorgio armani silk foundation


    Been 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..
  60. Sheer coverage dream


    This 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.
  61. Amazing!


    The only foundation I use!! Great for someone wanting a full dewy finish!
  62. HG


    My 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.
  63. Best foundation ever


    I just love it ! Looks so natural and smooth on my skin.
    High quality foundation!
  64. 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.
  65. 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
  66. Beautiful


    This foundation looks so effortless on my face and I love it. It covers everything too.
  67. 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.
  68. Such a good foundation


    Love 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
  69. Feels like wearing nothing


    Beautiful light weight foundation. Blends in and covers so well with my skin that it looks like im 'barely wearing any foundation'.
  70. The best


    Have 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
  71. Amazing


    This 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!
  72. Not what i expected


    I 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!
  73. Didn't live up to the expectation


    I 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.
  74. Light but great


    This is a great foundation that I have been using for years and love it
  75. Natural


    This is a gorgeous natural looking foundation with buildable coverage.
  76. My Holy Grail Foundation


    I 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.
  77. Lightweight beautiful glow


    I 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.
  78. Natural finish, light feel


    I 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!
  79. Good coverage and gives great skin texture and glow


    I 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
  80. Lightweight and Dewy


    This foundation is fantastic. The way it applies to the skin is like velvet. It has such a nice finish once blended out.
  81. Worth every cent


    Light 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!!
  82. Flawless


    This foundation gives me a flawless look and is a perfect colour match for me too
  83. Lovely covering


    This 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.
  84. Amazing


    This 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.
  85. LOVE IT


    Such a good foundation, perfect coverage and such a light weight feel, feels so soft on my face and covers all my imperfections
  86. Still the best


    Have 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
  87. 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
  88. Amazing


    I 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


    This 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!
  90. 10/10


    I 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.
  91. The best


    Honestly 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
  92. Silk


    Like 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)
  93. A really good foundation


    I'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.
  94. Beautiful silky feel


    The product is really beautiful and easy to apply. Does not look cakey and is very skin like.
  95. 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.
  96. Like wearing nothing


    When I apply this it honestly feels like I'm wearing nothing. Its so light and silk, I LOVE IT!
  97. Love!


    Love this foundation; it’s not cakey at all and gives a luminous look without being shiny
  98. Sheer coverage


    This 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!
  99. Light weight but buildable coverage


    I 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.
