Armani Face Fabric foundation cross-referencing

In addition to the Face Fabric swatches, these may help. I think the reason for the shade overlaps is that the Face Fabric is fairly flexible.

    >Hey very nice blog! I’ve always liked your swatches on MUA, I’m very happy that you’re putting them in a blog. Not nsure if this is what you want, but I use Armani Face Fabric is 3 and I also match to the following shades: Stila Illuminating Liquid Foundation 30 W, RMK Creamy and Liquid Foundation 203, Paul & Joe Dual Powder Foundation 30, Armani Luminous Silk Powder 5. Hope this helps. Cheers, Ana

    >One of the reasons I’m hesitant to online-order this…so hard to tell. I wear Armani LSF5 and from this info, looks like I’d wear FF3. But from your swatches, I’m much closer to FF1. Great posts and nice blog! :)

  • Amber says:

    >Umm… I'm glad to see these swatches are here, but why are are the corresponding foundations missing for shades 5, 6 & 7?? You took pictures of them, so why no cross reference??

  • KarlaSugar says:

    >Hey Amber —

    Potential matches for the darker shades are missing because I couldn’t find anyone who wore those shades. The rest of the list was compiled by asking people what they wore in Face Fabric and what they wore in any other foundation. If I collect that data at any point, I’ll be sure to update this list!
