So today I’m trying out the very much raved about ‘Giorgio Armani Silk Foundation’ and I’m in the shade ‘2’.
Not gonna lie guys – This is ONE of my most expensive purchases for a foundation, but with that being said, I am open to buying something of expense IF it does what it says on the tin!
I first purchased this from the Feelunique website and as you can see, they have a wide variety of shades that you can purchase which is excellent as I feel it is very important if you’re going to create a higher brand foundation, to cater to ALL your potential customers.
In order to apply this I have just used my trusty Real Techniques ‘Miracle Complexion Sponge’ which I absolutely LOVE – It just make the application process that much more enjoyable and the blending so much more smoother and easier – For anyone!
I must say when it comes to application – you don’t need a lot to make a difference as it has a very delicate consistency which feels weightless and glides on the skin beautifully. Upon first look impressions; It looks incredibly beautiful, natural and radiant on the skin (Still allows my freckles to peek through – which I kinda like).
It’s oil-free – which is great as I have normal/combination skin and I can often find that around the areas of my ‘T-zone’ I can become quite annoyingly oily, but with this product I haven’t found that being the case.
In my opinion this is a versatile foundation, initially being a light/medium coverage, but definitely has the option to build. It holds the perfect amount of coverage to hide those ‘naughty no no’s’ without giving you that thick, ‘cakey’ feel that we all detest and most importantly, it allows your skin to breathe.
However, that’s not to say that when it comes to PARTY time and you’ve been looking forward to a night out with the ladies (Or lads – No judging here) that you can’t get your full-coverage desired look. Just try switching it up a notch and apply a little bit more. Either way you will still find that compared to several other foundations, it will NOT hold that weighted feel on your skin, which is a major bonus as you will want your foundation to stay in place all night and to look on ‘point’ but with the care-free, weightless feeling so that you can just dance the night away in your heels until your little heart’s content knowing that you look ‘da-bomb’!
Let me know in the comments your thoughts and if you’ve liked/disliked this product.
