Armani beauty is celebrating Luminous Silk Foundation’s 20th anniversary. The brand just added a new concealer to their Luminous Silk line. Luminous Silk Foundation been one of top rated foundations yet they also added new shades to this foundation line to cover all skin tones.
Luminous Silk Foundation (C$80 for 30mL & C$55 for 18mL) is one of the best selling foundations around the world, its probably one of the best formulas for a nice natural flawless glow. The brand added 10 new shades to the collection ranging it to 40 shades to cover all skin tones. Yet I was super excited to test and try out the Luminous Silk Foundation for the first time. I’ve already tried out their primer which was launched with the concealer earlier this year – reviewed here.
I have been a lover for their Power Fabric line and as a natural beauty lover I always wanted to try out this Luminous Silk Foundation.
This is one of the foundations that mostly gets recommended from celebrity makeup artists. I find the texture is super light and sheer but buildable to medium coverage and carries translucent finish. Its definitely an every day foundation that look like your skin but better. Adds a nice radiance, evens out the skin while you do see imperfections like freckles. Definitely a foundations that enhances complexion. Its designed for those who doesn’t like the fake skin look or thick foundation feel in their complexion.
It glides seamlessly onto skin using finger, brush or beauty sponge. I personally love to use my foundation brush, I find it blends quite nicely. The lasting power is quite amazing especially when it sets with a finishing powder. Selecting shades are a bit tricky with Armani Beauty, they do oxidize one or some times two shades darker. I would highly recommend to match your under tone and go a shade lighter than your skin.
Luminous Silk Lightweight Concealer (C$49) is a hydrating full coverage concealer that comes in 20 shades to cover all skin tones. This can be used as a corrector as well concealer for better coverage. This isn’t like your full coverage concealer, it lightweight and with luminous finish. It offers brightness and radiance with buildable coverage. Yet if you’re suffering from deep dark circles or high pigmentation this isn’t some thing that will combat it. You can use this in a peach or orange shade to even out the skin then you can conceal for a flawless finish.
Its designed with a super soft plump applicator for a mistake-proof application. I was really impressed with this new feature. I received the concealer in #2 which is a good match to my skin carrying a warmer undertone.
Here is why I wanted to share the side by side swatches of the concealer in same shade to show difference. Its important to make sure it matches your skin tone in person. I feel with Luminous Silk Foundation goes well with the same shade with its concealer. I feel like #3 would have been a better or exact match to my skin.
I tried out the whole like together and I find the primer, foundation and concealer goes very well together to create a super natural and glowing complexion with amazing lasting power. Its probably one of the foundations and concealers that you can wear comfortably any time and any where. I find you can always correct the parts that need correction while add this as a nice glowing veil on your skin for a flawless finish.
