I've recently become somewhat of a foundation fiend, long gone are the days where I would stock pile my favourite drugstore L'Oreal Lumi Magique like there was going to be an apocalypse. Despite being a hoarder of all things cosmetic, I was never really tempted to try a high end foundation scared off by the price tag when I was already quite content with my cheaper alternative. However, I began to realise that different formula's were needed for the colder months, or days where I want a bit more coverage and so I began to stock up.
Now, don't get me wrong I still love my L'Oreal Lumi Magique with it's light dewy finish, it was perfect for everyday wear during the Summer but with winter coming it was time to branch out. I love my Estee Lauder Double Wear for nights out and days where my skin is just not co-operating, and I've tried and tested Lancôme's Teint Vissonaire which again is good for coverage but was slightly too dark for my skin tone. But, after hearing many a good thing about Giorgio Armani's Luminous Silk Foundation I had to give it a go...
This foundation is perfect for the winter months and those of us who battle with dry skin, I apply moisturiser before hand and no longer suffer with those dry foundation patches that were the bane of my life. The shade range is bloomin' marvellous with 21 shades in all, you can tell I'm the palest of the pale as I was matched up to Shade 2. It blends into my skin seamlessly and the colour match is spot on for me, something I again have trouble with having to often mix and match shades. I have found myself reaching for this more and more with the only downside being it retails at £35 a bottle and I can see myself running through this within a couple months.
Have you tried Luminous Silk? What's your go to winter foundation?
