Giorgio Armani Maestro Glow Nourishing Fusion Makeup
Giorgio Armani is a brand I haven't tried much from so when I received the most exciting email ever, in which I had the opportunity to try their new foundation, squealing did happen, if I'm honest. I have recently also tried the new Chanel Les Beige Healthy Glow Foundation and I thought this would be similar (and I am right. Spoilers.) so I will have a comparison post between the two foundations on my blog soon, if anyone would be interested?

I have the *Giorgio Armani Maestro Glow Nourishing Fusion Makeup SPF 30 (£40, 30ml) in the shade 04 which was the lightest shade available at the time and yes, it looks too dark and it is quite yellow toned but thankfully it works SO well on my pink toned, super pale skin.

The foundation claims to enhance radiance with a light texture and buildable coverage; as well as a comfortable long lasting formula and hydrating skincare benefits - I know, it sounds far too good to be true.

I have been using this foundation for the past couple of weeks and I have to be honest and say that it is the one foundation, in the past couple of years, that has really wowed me - even considering the new Chanel foundation which I do also love. The Giorgio Armani foundation does look far too dark for my ghostly pale skin in the bottle and it is really quite yellow toned but when blended and then applied down the neck it matches my skintone really well!

The foundation has a light, thin consistency and it comes with a pipette dispenser which is definitely needed and it feels so fresh and lightweight on the skin. It gives an almost airbrushed look to the skin even though it isn't very detectable and the coverage is light/medium, it makes my skin look amazing. My skin looks more even, radiant but not greasy, moisturised, pump and fresh. The coverage is light, boarding on medium for me and it does cover redness and pores very well but it can't cover blemishes or very dark circles. It has a gorgeous glow to it, as the name would suggest but it isn't greasy looking or shimmery, it looks like a natural, healthy glow.
Excuse the sports bra!
After all of those amazing positives, I didn't think it could get any better but it does! The foundation lasts all day on me with only a tiny amount of powder to set it! The first time I used this foundation, I applied it at about 1pm and by 10pm, it was exactly the same as it was when I applied it - even though my skin wasn't in the very best condition. I'm incredibly impressed with the foundation, especially the finish, apparently magic shade matching ability and the seemingly time defying longevity. Also the packaging is just gorgeous, as you would expect from such a high end brand - speaking of high end, the price...it is the most expensive foundation I own but I cannot recommend it enough and I will be buying it when this bottle runs out. Overall rating: ★★★★★, 5/5!

Have you tried any foundations from Giorgio Armani?

  10. I'm totally in love with the packaging of this - looks soooo luxurious. And wow, looks so natural as well, you've done a great job matching your colour! The thing which puts me off Giorgio Armani products a little bit is the price tag... I could hardly justify the £30 I spent on Double Wear Light at first but actually the more I use it the more I think it's totally worth it, so maybe I would find the same with this foundation! Thanks for your comment on my blog by the way, very kind! Do you want to follow each other on Bloglovin' so we can keep up with each others' posts? I really like your blog :)
