Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation 6 Review & Swatches

Not Sponsored: I've wanted to try Giorgio Armani's Luminous Silk Foundation $64 (Harrods, Bloomingdales, Barney's, Sephora, Saks Fifth Avenue) for awhile. I always hear great things. I selected Shade 6 (medium, warm), but I think I could bump it up to 6.5 for Summer. I found the coverage, on its own, to be really good. I show a picture of myself below with no makeup (Smashbox Photofinish Primer) and then with ONLY the foundation. It covered the dark areas under my eyes, other discolorations and evened my skin-tone. When I added my Becca Under Eye Brightening Corrector, NARS Soft Matte Concealer (I'm currently out of my favorite Tarte Shape Tape :P), things really came together. This foundation is pretty matte on DRY SKIN, so I had to spray Urban Decay's All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray to get rid of the cake-iness/dry look. It really made a difference. I then added Too Faced's Got Peach? Lipstick. I then tried it with Laura Mercier's Translucent Powder, but it along with the foundation made my skin look dry. It's a really good foundation, but I don't think it's the best foundation for DRY SKIN. You would have to use a primer that is moisturizing and a makeup setting spray that adds moisture. This foundation can look drying on DRY SKIN. I don't know if the Giorgio Armani Primer would help. When I went through the foundation finder on their website, it said I should try their Designer Lift Foundation. So I may try that formula! I have more foundations I want to try :)
