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?


  • Beautiful finish
  • Dewy
  • Lovely packaging
  • Wears well


  • 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
