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!

Most Helpful Criticism

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.
  1. Treasure!

  2. 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.

  4. 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!
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. 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!
  8. Gold


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


    Feels so nice and light on skin and provides the right amount of coverage
  10. 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!!
  12. 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...
  13. 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.
  14. Does not suit me


    Many people say it is good but I don’t think it suits me
  15. 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
  16. The perfect foundation


    This is by far the best and most natural sitting foundation I have ever used on my skin.
  17. 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.
  18. Holy Grail Foundation


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


    Silky and dewy. Provides full coverage but is so lightweight. Gives me a beautiful natural face!
  20. 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!
  21. 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.
  22. a good product


    Colour 2 is suitable for people with fair skin. It looks bright and feels comfortable.I really like this one.
  23. 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 :(
  24. 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.
  25. 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.
  26. 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
  27. 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!
  28. Great


    Good foundation, bit over priced but definitely full coverage and blends nicely on the skin!
  29. 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
  30. 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..
  31. 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.
  32. Amazing!


    The only foundation I use!! Great for someone wanting a full dewy finish!
  33. 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.
  34. Best foundation ever


    I just love it ! Looks so natural and smooth on my skin.
    High quality foundation!
  35. 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.
  36. 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
  37. Beautiful


    This foundation looks so effortless on my face and I love it. It covers everything too.
  38. 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.
  39. 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
  40. 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'.
  41. 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
  42. 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!
  43. 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!
  44. 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.
  45. Light but great


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


    This is a gorgeous natural looking foundation with buildable coverage.
  47. 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.
  48. 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.
  49. 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!
  50. 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
  51. 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.
  52. 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!!
  53. Flawless


    This foundation gives me a flawless look and is a perfect colour match for me too
  54. 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.
  55. 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.
  56. 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
  57. 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
  58. 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
  59. 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!
  61. 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.
  62. 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
  63. 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)
  64. 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.
  65. Beautiful silky feel


    The product is really beautiful and easy to apply. Does not look cakey and is very skin like.
  66. 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.
  67. Like wearing nothing


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


    Love this foundation; it’s not cakey at all and gives a luminous look without being shiny
  69. 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!
  70. 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.
  71. 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!
  72. Natural


    Silky 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.
  73. Beautiful foundation


    This makes me look super natural and flawless. Such a natural finish. If you can work it up to full coverage too.
  74. Super lightweight and buildable


    The 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.
  75. Still good


    The 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.


    This 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!
  77. Blends well and looks natural

    Trina N

    When 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.
  78. 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.
  79. Great


    Nice foundation. Set really well and applied so nicely. Definitely like the name: silk. So happy with it. The colour matched perfectly too.


    This 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!
  81. Stunning finish - worth every penny


    This 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
  82. My skin but FLAWLESS!


    Glow glow glow - this foundation is silky, weightless and makes skin look radiant and natural!! Love it!
  83. Beautiful & Quality


    Happy 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.
  84. Feels so light on the skin


    Honestly 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.
  85. Sheer coverage


    I 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.
  86. Silkyness & Flawfless Foundation


    Efficient and amazing as its name! It creates a silky & flawless foundation. It makes the skin looks healthy and naturally glow.
  87. 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 *****
  88. Best foundation


    This 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..
  89. Great foundation


    I 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
  90. Holy grail foundation


    I 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!
  91. Light and natural finish


    Very 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
  92. Professional MUA go-to


    I'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.
  93. Great but not full coverage


    I 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
  94. Incredibly flawless coverage


    What 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.
  95. Best Foundation Ever


    I 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.


    This 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.
  97. Ohhhhhhhhhhhmagawd


    A 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!!
  98. Feels like air!

    Tresna (Adore Beauty Staff)

    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.

  99. Beautiful finish


    Such a beautiful foundation, finish is amazing, skin looks perfect and glowy. Love this one. Not too good in flash photography however. Smells lovely too!
