The product

The easiest way to even out your skin tone, create a flawless base and mask imperfections is with a foundation that has a finish that looks like your skin, only better.

Giorgio Armani Beauty Luminous Silk Foundation has reached cult-status for good reason: the base offers a buildable medium coverage that never feels heavy on skin; the finish is radiant-matte; and the formula is suitable to wear for all skin types. Plus, the brand has just added 12 new shades to the range, meaning you’re more likely to find your perfect match.

Our panel of Review Crew® testers put this product to the test. Here’s what they thought:

The finish of the foundation: Testers liked that the foundation gave their skin a natural-looking glow and that it offered the perfect amount of coverage without ever caking or looking too heavy.

How the foundation felt on their skin: Our reviewers really enjoyed how lightweight and fresh the foundation felt on the skin, like they weren’t wearing anything at all.

How perfectly the foundation matched their skin tone: Many Review Crew® members of different skin tones comments  that there was a generous range of foundation colours on offer, and that they were able to successfully find the perfect shade that suited them.

The verdict


“It feels super lightweight on your skin – almost like you are wearing no foundation. I would absolutely recommend [it] and think it is such a versatile base that is perfect for creating both a dewy daytime look, and a more polished nighttime look.”
Review Crew® Member
“The silky fluid formula glides onto the skin easily, provides a light to medium coverage but also a buildable coverage that stays put all day with a radiant, airbrushed finish.”
Review Crew® Member
“Medium coverage and buildable, but does not cake up or feel heavy. The one key difference is that this foundation gives you a GLOW, which makes you look [a] million dollars.”
