GIORGIO ARMANI LUMINOUS SILK FOUNDATION


Once I've read: „Beauty isn't about having a pretty face, it's about having a pretty mind, a pretty heart, a pretty soul. A beautiful appearance will last a few decades, but a beautiful personality will last a lifetime.“ Sometimes I ponder how wonderful it would be if beauty magazines promoted such messages and facilitate the growing up of little girls, telling them that each have something beautiful inside, rather then compare themselves with photoshoped faces whose natural beauty is obscured by thick layer of makeup. I was never approving of excessive makeup and always preferred powder or liquid foundation underneath which a natural looks wouldn't be lost. After a lengthy search, I found it in Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation.

I'll start with the packaging. The liquid foundation comes in an elegant and sophisticated elliptical 30 ml bottle of recognizable Armani design. Lower part is made of transparent shaded glass through which you can see the hue and check the consumption, while on top there is a black lacquered plastic pump for optimal dosing. The lid is made out of same material with a silver Giorgio Armani logo.

First time I heard about it was when Victoria Beckham mentioned it laudably in an interview, saying that it is the only one she uses. Then I read that Kim Kardashian and Chrissy Teigen also wear it, but the final decision for purchase came when I discovered that one of the consumers is Meghan Markle. The reason why she in particular was the key factor is the fact that every time I see her face on TV or in a magazine it gives the impression of complete naturalness and her likable freckels comes to fruition. She wore the foundation on her wedding day and yet her face seemed to have nothing on it.
Luminous Silk Foundation allows natural and at the same time chic makeup look and reveals the inner glow. Top experts in Armani labs have presented revolutionary micro-fil textures, an approach to cosmetics boosted by advanced fiber technology. Inspired by charmeuse silk, “the fabric of emperors”, this glistening foundation weightlessly glides across the face and produce a deep, flawless sheen. New generation of extremely light, radiant, satin and splendid formulas introduce colors and textures in a nouveau, different way, offering evenness, smooth application and incredible softness and comfort.

Armani foundation procures lasting hydration and coverage, the sensation of “second skin” with a sunny finish and impeccable durability in all conditions. After utilization, the texture operatively merges with the skin and blurs the irregularities beneath airy veil that does not cause any weight. Velvety, illuminating natural finish can be upgraded if needed and because of its spectacular upstroke the foundation is an indispensable part of makeup for women who knows exactly what they want: to be beautiful, self-confident and inartificial. Armani himself stated that this product, no matter how many layers you apply, sieves a natural skin’s luster. That’s why I love it so much, along with light to medium coverage, buildability, bright finish and persistent hydration. With its unique formula and because of all of the above said, it has achieved an iconic status in cosmetics and turn into absolute favourite among numerous makeup artists, and with the help of wide selection of 31 nuances which are suitable for every single type of complexion it gained fans and admirers on a global scale.

The premier usage of Luminous Silk Foundation was like love at first sight! The texture is creamy and exceptionally lightweight and it felt like I didn’t place anything on my face. When applying I always move from the centre to the sides of my face and one layer is enough to attain fresh, airy and youthful look. Since my face is clear and free of marks, any additional overlay is quite unrequired, and preferable shade 4 perfectly matches my complexion, while silky texture seems very natural and leaves no impression of the mask.

I normally employ the foundation with Beauty Blender in classical pink hue. I’m sure that everyone at least once dealt with this extraordinarily efficient applicator which, due to exclusive water-activated foam, a design devised for delineation of seamless lines, reusability and supremely soft texture, secures the practise of the so-called airbrush that absorbs minimal amount of product so your favourite formula ends up on the face instead on the sponge. In my opinion it’s ideal for powders, liquid foundations, BB creams, concealers and for thorough coverage and finish. It’s also the conviction of entire cosmetic industry as this blender won the Allure Best of Beauty award for the tenth time in 2018.

It's the only device I use, because it supplies precise and simple setting, improvement through build up, it’s light and practical, tender and comfortable upon touch and I can reach and cover all parts on my face with it.

As you've already observed in previous posts, I put more emphasis on skin care. I believe that glittering and glossy skin originate from proper care, meaning that it’s possible to use less makeup to keep the skin still glowing. In that regard, for me it's sufficient to put on just this foundation and Giorgio Armani Ecstasy Shine Lipstick in shade 502 Drama.

The delicate, facile Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation makes me feel like that, enhances the skin tone and obfuscates potential fissures without the effect of a mask. Face is not a mask – don’t hide it. Although I’m aware that we as people strive to perfection in various fields, and perfection of looks and appearance is perhaps most desirable one, still I’m more inclined to be real. We are born to be real, not perfect. Perfection is an illusion based on our own perception. We are all perfect in our imperfections.

All the best till the next post!

    Unfortunately, the product contains palm oil, which is responsible for the destruction of rainforest, micro-plastic, which is also questionable, and it contains a drug that is hormonally active.

    Dubious: Cyclopentasiloxane + 3
    Hormonell wirksam: Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate + 3
    Enthält Palmöl: Acetylated Glycol Stearate, Glycerin

    So I wouldn't use this product.

  33. All the flower power heaven gorgeous goddess! This foundation looks beyond stunning and I love the natural message behind it. You made such a valid point about magazines promoting inner beauty instead of photoshopped images, I think we've reached a more "real" point in society where most people want to feel reassured when they read a magazine instead of downbeat and insecure. Especially when it comes to the wellbeing of young girls who read these magazines. I'm so happy this foundation was a gem for you, the lipstick looks truly stunning too! ♥︎

  57. I can see why so many famous ladies swear by this foundation, it does sound wonderful. A foundation that looks natural and feels light weight on the skin sounds like a perfect foundation to me. I'm a fan of natural looking make up and this especially applies to foundation.

    I think that people often forget that we shouldn't eliminate basic human traits in our search for perfection. Freckles are adorable and there is no need to hide them. I'm just not a fan of over edited images, or make up looks that make people look like dolls. But I guess we all define 'perfection' in our own way.
