Foundation Review- Armani Luminous Silk


Hello Lovelies,

God it really feels like an eternity since I posted a one product review like this. Of course I'll blame the wedding but we are know there's way more to that like time management in our general lives, you certainly don't need the excuse of a wedding as a blogger, not to have the time to do something.

I actually had every intention of posting this long before the wedding as I was considering this to be one of my wedding foundations. I had heard so many good things about it that I went to Brown Thomas' one very busy Saturday and got skin matched to a light tan to get the correct shade I thought I'd need.

On the big day itself, I didn't end up wearing this foundation but... I brought it on honeymoon instead. 3 weeks in Thailand was deffo going to be a test for this foundation!

So how did it get on? I loved it!! Honestly I was so chuffed with this foundation in the heat and with all the sun factor products I was also wearing. How I started with the Armani Luminous Silk foundation was researching popular bridal foundations online followed by a quick stop at the Armani Counter in Brown Thomas'. There I was skin matched by a lovely MUA who of course at this stage I've forgotten her name. I explained it was my wedding coming up and that I was looking for a healthy glowing look without being shiny on the wedding day.

I was matched to a shade 5 which wasn't too dark but deffo not my pale tan. This actually proved a little funny towards the end of the honeymoon as I decided to skip reapplying the tan and just go with the pale. Trying to dry fake tan in a humid Thailand was not my best plan, even with air conditioning. 

So back to the foundation here's some of the claims from the brand itself...

Luminous - Lightweight - Comfortable

Lightweight, buildable, medium coverage foundation

Fluid Foundation

Reveal your inner light. Inspired by charmeuse silk, "The Fabric of Emperors," this luminous foundation glides on weightlessly for a flawless lit-from-within glow. 30ml format. Using exclusive Micro–fil™ technology to sculpt and brighten, this buildable, medium coverage foundation improves texture and blurs imperfections. Comes in 24 shades to match every unique skin tone.

How to apply:
Use the blender brush for a radiant, air-brushed finish.

I have to agree with the brand on a few of their points here.. I would completely agree it is a medium coverage foundation but does have the capacity to build once applied again in a new layer. I also think it's lightweight as I really wouldn't have manged a heavier foundation in that heat. So it was both easy to apply and easy to remove with an oil based cleanser (I love my Dermalogica precleanse oil so I'm never without it)

I can completely see why so many brides love this foundation and it may just be on my wish list again once this one runs out, I think in a darker shade this time so I can use it for nights out kinda tan ;)
