I don’t normally like to buy luxury brands, but while walking through Neiman Marcus I couldn’t help but stop at the Giorgio Armani counter. I’ve heard so many people talk about the Luminous Silk Foundation that I had to see what the fuss was about. Of course I had to get more items so I picked up four more things!
The Luminous Silk Foundation is amazing. I have the shade 4.5, and I’d say it’s a medium coverage. I don’t have many issues with my skin, but I have to say this foundation makes my skin look amazing. I never wear a concealer when I wear it. To go with the foundation the woman who did my makeup use the Light Master Primer. This was a nice primer that keeps the foundation on and gives me skin a nice glow. Nothing crazy since I do have combination oily skin.
To set everything I use the Luminous Silk Compact in the shade 4.5. I really like how the powder looks and feels on my skin. I can use it over the foundation or on its own when I don’t really feel like wearing much makeup. Throw on some concealer, the powder and that’s it.
I picked up a Lasting Satin Lip Color in 512, which is a beautiful neutral pink. It’s great for everyday wear. The formula is quite nice. It’s pigmented, moisturizing, and lasts a few hours on my lips before I have to re-apply. A few months later I picked up a limited edition lipstick in a pale mauve shade. It’s a nice formula, but I’m not a fan of how this shade looks on me. It doesn’t really work with my skin tone.
Overall I’m loving what I’ve tried so far. I really want to pick up a mascara and a few eye products and a blush and bronzer. The products are quite pricey, but the quality is there and well worth making the splurge if you really want to try the brand.
