Today I want to tell you about the cult classic foundation Giorgio Armani Lasting Silk UV Foundation in color #4.
The design of the product is very simple and sleek at the same time. The tube with the content is made of thick matte glass, though you can be sure that it won’t break if you accidentally drop it on the floor. The lettering doesn’t fade over time, as well as the brand logo GA on the top cap.
There’s a pump dispenser which is fine as I can control the amount of the product that comes out. But the pump is always stained with the foundation leftovers which I don’t actually like.

I have my foundation in the fairest color which is #4. It oxidizes on my skin and becomes one tone darker with time. Even though the product has a matte finish my skin still looks very natural with it.
I like to apply it with my densely-packed brush #103 Zoeva, as the sponge gives too sheer and lightweight coverage that I don’t like.
Let’s have a look at the foundation in action?
My nude face:
There’s only this foundation on my skin:
How do you find it? I appreciate this rather lively finish that glows only in the right face parts.
In the photo the product looks good against my skin, though if you have uneven skin relief, this foundation will show it:
It’s very difficult to predict the way this foundation will look over the skin - you can either look fantastic with it on or so terrible that the only way out will be to wash it off completely.
The product has SPF20
to it and a clear rose scent as well, which isn’t distracting for me as I can feel it only while application.
The product offers a good wear time of 7 or 8 hours and after that it fades from my face. The oily shine appears only after 5-6 hours of wearing and I also noticed that it’s almost transfer-proof.
The product is stunningly comfortable while wear. As I’ve already said before, this foundation can show your skin relief and pores, especially if you have problematic skin type.
This is the same foundation in other look:
I like the way this product looks on me in the photos but in life it doesn’t looks so great and perfect.
I guess this is an ideal “my skin but better” kinda foundation if you have good skin and there aren’t any significant blemishes on it. I just can’t see any point in splurging on a product that really performs rather shitty on my face.
