Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation

$74CAD at Sephora, and available in 30 shades.   This is a natural finish, light coverage foundation.  I have heard endless numbers of people touting this brand, and this foundation in particular. The formula is unscented, applies smoothly, and dries down quickly to provide a natural finish.  Although the product wears well, it is so light coverage you could literally skip the entire process of using it.  I seriously take A LOT of product to achieve any kind of coverage.  For the high price, it really just isn’t worth it in my opinion.  Yes, it looks great.  But, at what cost?

Pros:

  • Beautiful finish
  • Dewy
  • Lovely packaging
  • Wears well

Cons:

  • Extremely expensive
  • Limited shade range
  • No coverage without using significant amounts of product
  • Not Cruelty-free
  • Not Vegan
  • Dimethicones
  • Parabens
  • Fragrance ( although I didn’t notice any when I smelled the product)
  • Ultramarines
  • Mica
