Sensational skin: Armani Beauty Luminous Silk foundation and concealer
Although they aren’t necessarily any better than their drugstore counterparts, there is just something so special about luxury foundations. Maybe it’s the fact that it costs so much money that you feel it has to be good, or just the rush of owning something from a brand that turns out items that costs thousands of dollars… I mean, it does feel nice to apply a designer item on your face, am I right?
Anyways, although my foundation collection is quite large by this point, I do get excited trying out new ones and one that has been on my hit list for years now is Armani Beauty Luminous Silk Oil-Free Froundation (C$80). This foundation, which comes in a staggering 40 shades, is a lightweight medium-coverage buildable foundation that is designed to give your skin a radiant glow and an amazing complexion.
The oil-free formula contains a Micro-Fil technology that produces a low-density product with lots of pigments and a weightless texture. The first thing I noticed when I used this foundation was how lightweight the formula was, which in the times of COVID and the fact that I don’t really wear as much makeup as I used to, I really loved. It’s very lightweight and you don’t really feel it on your skin, which is very pleasant.
I got the shade 5.2, which the brand categorizes as a light-to-medium peach tone, and I find that it does suit my natural skin tone quite nicely. I have only applied this foundation with a beauty sponge but really like how it makes my skin look and feel. Like I said, it’s very lightweight and doesn’t feel like you have anything on your skin. The coverage is also really nice. It does a good job of giving you just the right amount of coverage you need without overdoing it. Of course, if you want a little more, another pump of the product will do the trick.
Pair the foundation with their new Luminous Silk Lightweight Liquid Concealer (C$49). This concealer, available in 20 shades, conceals and highlights with that same lightweight feel that the foundation is famous for.
Apply the concealer via the doe-foot applicator to reduce the look of dark circles, as well as to hydrate the area you’re applying it. The formula contains amino acid coated mineral pigments to cover up any imperfections on the skin. Since the formula is lightweight, it’s also very blendable, meaning that a little goes a long way with this.
I got the shade 4.75 in the concealer, which is light with a cool undertone. I find it pairs nicely with the shade I got in the foundation and together, they really give my face a beautiful glow. This concealer also contains caffeine and vitamin E to reduce dark circles and wake up the eye area, as well as glycerin to hydrate.
I pair these products with the brand’s Luminous Silk Lightweight Primer, which together with the foundation and concealer, the three work in perfect harmony to give you a perfect complexion.
At $80 and $49 each, these products are definitely on the pricier realm of products, but I do think they perform really well. If you had to choose one of them though, I would go with the foundation. I love the way it looks and feels on my skin. The way it applies is so natural-looking and you really don’t feel it, which during this day and age, is super important right now (also I didn’t find there was much mask transfer). There is definitely a reason why it’s a top seller in the foundation realm and I would say it definitely lives up to the hype.
