Holy Grail: Giorgio Armani Lasting Silk UV Foundation SPF 20

Girgio Arman Lasting Silk UV Foundatoin Review

In this post I review Giorgio Armani Lasting Silk UV Foundation

Could it be? Have I finally found my Holy Grail foundation? I had read about this foundation for a long time. It’s been voted best foundation in many of my favorite magazines, makeup artists that I love and admire have sworn by it, a lot of the celebrities I have crushes on use it. So I took the plunge and decided to try it. Shut.the.front.door. It is amazing. Right off the bat, you notice the texture right away. It feels weightless and fresh, and that’s precisely how it looks on the skin. I love water based foundations for this very reason. It glides across the skin, seamless and luminous {hence the name}. The coverage is medium and buildable. A little goes a long way and you can layer on for additional coverage. The finish is a beautiful mix of matte and satin. I don’t know how they managed to accomplish this feat, it may have something to do with the silk pigments and optical effect particles, but it is lovely and natural looking. This foundation really holds up too, it’s advertised as 14 hour and I can personally attest to this claim.

It is designed for normal to oily skin types and I don’t need any touch ups with blot powder or oil blotting sheets when I wear it. I’ve worn this foundation with my NARS and Laura Mercier primers with success, but I think I may need to try Giorgio Armani’s primer next {luxury is a slippery slope my friends}. It makes the skin look pretty and polished; you can expect many compliments when you wear it. At $59.00 it’s not exactly inexpensive, but if you wear foundation everyday it could be a great investment and addition to your makeup routine. I’m a big advocate for using products that really work and deliver.

You can stop by a Saks or Neiman Marcus and inquire about this foundation and ask for a sample to try it before you buy it. Remember to always try foundation, whenever possible, before you commit to purchasing to ensure the perfect match. If you need additional help with your foundation you can read more here and here.

    what do you think about mineral foundations? any faves?

    @Teri I am not a fan of mineral foundations. As a makeup artist, my vote is for long wearing foundations that photograph flawlessly. I’ve never had any success with mineral foundations-they made my pores appear larger, made me look shiny and reflective, and I was ghostly in photographs. I like what mineral makeup is doing for women who would never wear makeup otherwise, but it’s not for me. Stay tuned for my thoughts on mineral makeup in an upcoming post!
