Hi ladies, I have seen threads on WOL before from women using Armani foundation and saying that they loved it but no one ever mentioned what type it was. I was in BT yesterday and had a look and have fallen in love with their "Designer" foundation. It made my hand look amazing!!!!!!! It is €65 which is the most I have ever spent on foundation so before I buy I wanted to see if anyone has used it? Thanks for any help. :thnk

I use the luminous silk,this is their most popular one.Its about €35 in think.I always get comments on how great my skin is with it and i dont have great skin to be honest.The only thing i have heard some people say is that they thought it was a bit yellow,but i prefer a yellow based foundation than a pink one.Go in and get one of the girls to put some on you or ask for a sample before you buy it maybe?

Luminous silk is the one I use too. It is in Dublin duty free so if you're going through soon, save your money and buy it there.

hey, ive been using this foundation for a couple of months now and love it. it come in a lovely glass jar with its own brush. i was a big fan of lumnous silk and when i went to get some more the girl asked if i have tried the new designer one and now im hooked! its a little pricey but well worth it. the coverage is fantastic. here is the link to it. i think i paid 65 euro in bt's for it. http://www.giorgioarmanibeauty.com/_en/ ...

That's brilliant, thanks so much tab25, that is the one I was looking at. It's great to hear from someone so has used that and the other. I think I will have to invest!!!!!!

Ive just got a sample of the designer wear foundation. The girl in the shop told me it was for more mature / dehydrated skin but for a wedding it would give you more coverage than the luminous silk foundation. It's the luminous silk I use at the moment but will be trying the other one out soon :wv

[quote="tab25":124uz80o]it come in a lovely glass jar with its own brush[/quote:124uz80o] Does it come with the brush now? Frick, I was robbed so :o0 I have both the Luminous Silk and Designer Shaping Foundations. The designer one gives better coverage and the luminous silk one is a little more matt to my eye anyway. I find the luminous silk a little more dry.....as in it dries quite quickly so you have to blend fast....because of this I find it works better for me anyway in the summer when your skin tends to be less dry, I use the designer shaping in winter when my skin is a little drier or when I just need a little more coverage. Either one are really nice and make sure you try out the shades in both as I have shade 4 in the luminous silk and 4.5 in designer shaping cause they're not exactly the same colours. HTH and have fun trying them out.

are you sure you ahve the right one? it always came with a brush. "Integrated expert shaping brush : allows for the most smooth and natural buildable coverage." "Available in a range of 6 tailor made shades. Brush included with product." http://www.giorgioarmanibeauty.com/_en/ ... OUNDATIONS anyway, i agree with you. it is more for winter than summer as it is a much heavier foundation. i use my iluminous silk in the summer. i use no. 5. the reason its heavier is because it has a powder built into it. i think the reason they say its for more mature skin is because it hides fine lines very well. anyway, i love it....one of the best foundations i have used in a long time. :lvs
