Several readers brought to my attention that I had neglected to swatch one of Armani’s most popular formulas: Luminous Silk Foundation (LSF).
Luminous Silk Foundation is a fluid in a pump bottle. It provides buildable sheer-to-medium coverage with a luminous finish (by comparison, Face Fabric provides sheer coverage with a matte finish. Click here for an explanation of the differences between Armani’s foundation formulas). LSF is lightweight, oil-free, hydrating, and long-lasting. It is $59.
Any strange gaps in the numbering most likely indicates a discontinued shade. Armani’s website lists shade 6, which unfortunately wasn’t available at my counter to swatch — although my counter did have shade 12.5 (not on the website and presumably discontinued).
