The Armani Luminous Silk Perfect Glow Flawless Foundation is a staple in so many makeup artist’s kits, and for good reason. A long-time makeup artist and beauty editor favorite, this foundation is a little pricey at $69. So, is the Armani Luminous Silk Foundation really worth the lofty price? In short, yes. Ask anyone who has tried it, and I can almost guarantee they will vouch for the fact that it is, in fact, worth every penny.

What makes the Luminous Silk Foundation so good? The beauty award-winning, oil-free foundation is a medium coverage formula that delivers a luminous, natural-looking glow without being overly greasy or dewy. It flatters most skin types and gives a natural-looking finish while still providing buildable coverage—and it never looks cakey.

The foundation comes in 40 shades and is formulated with Micro–fil technology that allows color pigments to lay flat for seamless blending and layering, giving you customizable coverage. According to the brand, “this hydrating foundation helps improve skin texture and blur imperfections, all while delivering a long-lasting, lit-from-within glow.”

“The coverage is so good, but your skin also shines through,” says celebrity makeup artist Jamie Greenberg. “The finish leaves the skin hydrated and covered but looks like second skin.” Greenberg, who uses the foundation on her celebrity clients like Kaley Cuoco, Rashida Jones, and Chelsea Handler, says she likes to apply the Armani foundation with a makeup brush and a Beauty Blender. “I love using a Beauty Blender after applying it with a brush; I bounce a wet blender (over the face) to really make it look natural.”
