Hey there everybody. Happy September to you all. Soon, we will be falling for fall :-). Here is a review that I thought of posting but never got the chance to post until now. Please excuse me for my current MIA situation. I am currently very busy and will not be able to respond to your messages quickly. Rest assured that I have read all of them and will respond as soon as I have the time. Thank you mucho.
So, back to this long-overdue review, the Giorgio Armani beauty is one of the most exciting beauty products to always have in your purse. In line with the Chanel and Dior beauty, Armani’s makeup line is superb and well-crafted. I am a big fan of their makeup bases, powders, and lip products. These last few days of summer and even last year’s, I have been using and testing some Armani products, and I am very satisfied with each product’s quality.
Here are my top picks in Armani foundations, concealers, and primers.
Neo Nude Foundation in #5 – Light with a neutral undertone. Marketed as a lightweight hydrating foundation infused with skincare benefits. This foundation is meant to give a natural glowy finish. To me, this feels like a tinted moisturizer that is ideal to use on good/clear skin days because the coverage is light. There is no sticky feeling while wearing this, and this is the kind of foundation that is ideal for warm temperatures.
Luminous Silk Hydrating Primer – This is one of my most preferred primers ever due to the fluid consistency. This product feels like a skincare/primer hybrid, similar to the Milk Makeup Hydrogrip primer, also my holy grail. I have tried using this primer with just about any foundation, and the gripping power is very good. The fluid consistency is never sticky, and gives a moisturizing effect on the skin. I believe this is a great primer to combine with the Armani Neo Nude Foundation.
Luminous Silk Face and Under-Eye Concealer in #5 – Light with neutral undertone. This concealer is an Allure Best of Beauty winner in 2020. I like this concealer a lot. This sets well on the skin, and this has medium coverage and a somewhat radiant finish due to the micro-shimmer effect. Meaning, the finish will not look so flat while you are wearing this. The texture is creamy but never sticky once the product sets on the skin. I find that it is easy to build this product on the blemishes I want to conceal, and the lasting power can be more than 4 hours.
Power Fabric Concealer in 4.5 – Light to medium with a golden undertone. I reviewed this concealer before, and I always love this in any season and at any temperature. The lasting power is impressive, and the finish does not crack on the skin. The coverage is full, and the finish is matte, yet will not look flat once the product sets on the skin. Additionally, this concealer will hide your blemishes, your feelings, and your sins, LOL. This will even hide your age. So, go try! You are welcome (kidding) :-).
Power Fabric Compact Cream Foundation Balm in #4.5 – What can I say? I love this product VERY MUCH. I am not sure about the bad reviews about this product, but this product is heaven-sent for me. Imagine having a full-coverage foundation packed in one gorgeous Armani compact? This is it. I am not sure why Armani called this a “balm”. To me, this is like a true creamy foundation with the concept of a cushion that you dab on the face in terms of application. I like the idea of this product because this is easy to carry. Also, the coverage is really good and will cover anything you want to cover. There is no need to keep packing the product on the skin, as one dab will usually work. If the packaging of this product is gorgeous, the packaging is also a caveat because it feels quite bulky. The product feels like there is too much packaging that it may be tricky to carry the product in small purses.
