At the moment I'm using the Beauty Pie Everyday Great Skin Foundation, which apparently is basically the same as the Giorgio Armani luminous silk foundation.
Ive never tried the GA one (too expensive for me at £42!!), but if it's true that they are basically the same formula, then it really is good in every way. Matches my skin tone well, adds brightness, goes on well, and stays on well with decent coverage.
But I guess it all depends on how much you're wanting to spend on it, because £42 is pretty steep!
You can always add/ mix some illuminating drops to get that glow, Cover FX ones are great. For a change in foundation YSL lightweight is really nice but is really light so depends how lightweight you want it 🙈 xx
@Pineapple I've tried the double wear light, there are not many foundations I've not tested 😁
@DJMcCumiskey I got colour matched at the Giorgio Armani counter yesterday and the lady was very helpful and gave me a little pot of their most popular foundation to test. I tried it out today and although the match and application was pretty good, it became a bit patchy towards the end of the day. I'll give it another go tomorrow. £42 is a bit steep to be honest but my birthday is coming up this month so I could splash out. Sorry for the close up!
This one looks lovely one you 😊 the all hours is different from the ysl teint touche eclat. I first brought the all hours and honestly it was awful made me patchy within hours. ysl teint touche eclat Gives more of a dewy finish rather than matte. X
When your skin looks that good, close ups are allowed! @Priya_13 👍 Like you say, it looks to be a good match and coverage, and if you can't treat yourself on your birthday then when can you?!
I'm currently working my way through my beauty pie sample pack to find the best shade so I can order a full-size foundation. I thought I'd found the perfect colour, but my Mam said it looked a bit pale.
But it in terms of staying power and not oxidising (which can be a big problem for me being oily skinned) it appears to be just what I'm looking for.
@DJMcCumiskey thank you, urban decay optical illusion hides a multitude of sins. I tried the Giorgio Armani again today and although the shade is perfect I had the same problem as yesterday as my make up looks patchy by the end of the day. I'm undecided whether to invest yet. I might try and get a sample of the Kat Von D lock it foundation, that's another brand of foundation I haven't tried. I've had foundations in the past which have been too light and I tried using bronzer to get the tone right but I just ended up looking like my face was dirty 🤷♀️
