It’s time to test out Power Fabric foundation from Giorgio Armani.
They claim that the product is a must-have for evening makeup and it provides the best hold. Let’s find everything out. Outer appearance:
This tube is nude and small. It has some info about the product on it.
Size: 5ml (the full size comes with a 30ml tube)
Shelf life: 12 months of opening
Made in France
Shade name: 3.5 (it’s a light shade with a slight yellow undertone)
Smell: fresh and barely there
Texture: lightweight, as though an emulsion
My skin: mixed, prone to oily shine in my T-zone and breaking out.
Application: you can use any tool to apply this product. It’ll look gorgeous anyway.
It’s so easy to distribute. No patchy or streaky finish. It blends into my skin seamlessly.
Thanks to the silicone in the formula, the product smoothes out my skin texture and blurs away all the pores.
It won’t be enough to cover up your skin blemishes on the first go, so be ready to pack it. I’m glad that I don’t see any cakeness on my skin at all.
The finish is satin and the product sets and doesn’t move afterward.
Wear time: since my skin is mixed, I can see some oily shine there within 2-2.5 hours of application. So, a setting powder is essential for me. I can recommend the Laura Mercier Loose Setting Translucent Powder.
Spending: 1-2 pumps are enough
A swatch on my hand:
Impressions of use:
It’s true that the Giorgio Armani foundations are really one of the best.
After application, I always try to find the reason to look in the mirror to watch my skin. It’s very hard to make me use any other foundation besides this one because GA is always in my heart.
It looks beautiful on my skin, it doesn’t have any mask-esque finish and the staying power rocks my socks off. It fades delicately from my face, leaving no patches or splotches behind.
Price: $64 for the full size
Rate: 5 stars
Overall thoughts: it is pricey but very beautiful foundation. I mean if you want a splurge, then you definitely need to pamper yourself with this product.
I hope that you found my review informative! =)
