I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – I’m Katie and I’m a foundation-a-holic. It’s a real disease y’all.
After sampling Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk, I knew I wanted to purchase it but I needed to make room in my stash. I need to adapt a one-in-one-out policy these days, I often struggled to fit them all into my muji draw inserts. I took a little pot from Harvey Nichols late last year in the shade 4.25 which was the perfect match – I normally go for slightly warmer tones for a foundation to be an all year rounder.
When sampling foundations, I always promise to return to that particular counter to make my purchase especially if the customer service had been good. The sales assistant was brilliant, very approachable and extremely willing to provide me with a sample. Once my sample was used up – I’ll be honest I used it sparingly, I set off to the counter and purchased the full size version. It’s my first Armani make up product and what a choice it was.
I absolutely adore this foundation – I know, I know so says every man and his dog but it really is fantastic. It’s just so multi-functional – you can wear it super sheer by just using your fingers to apply (sunday face anyone?) or you can buff it into the skin for a really, really flawless medium coverage.
It’s not too matte or too dewy, it kind of just sits in the middle for a really natural finish. I prefer a mix of finishes when it comes to foundation – I like a bit of glow to peek through. That’s not to say I don’t powder, I’m an oily-skinned gal so my T-Zone must be attended to but it’s not a necessity.
Also, how amazey is the bottle – it’s super luxe and is easily the prettiest of the bunch. The foundation also comes with a pump which dispenses just the right amount of product. I’ve never understood why brands release foundations without a pump, unless it’s a squeeze job – obvs, such a pain in the arse!
On a final note, LSF comes in a whopping 21 shades – it’s good to have some options.
Have you tried this or any other recent amazing finds?
Love, Katie xo
