Last summer I finally took the plunge and bought this much sought after foundation for a whopping 50 euros and whoa, do I have no regrets! Everyone and their cats and dogs have been singing its praises but I just had to join the crowd and write an equally enthusiast review because I would not be able to pass on it anymore. We are talking about a serious love affair here so if you have been postponing this purchase prepare yourself to get involved.
Luminous Silk is master at turning bad skin days into good ones thanks to its smooth and silky texture. Because of its heavy silicone formula it’s pro at smoothing over imperfections, dry patches, and omits the need of a primer, creating a flawless canvas. You could say that it’s an Instagram filter in a bottle: It blurs imperfections and creates a beautiful soft-focus look. The Micro-Fil technology, which provides a weightless formula, allows a buildable, sheer to medium coverage whilst still providing a natural and glowing skin.
Why Luminous Silk defeats them all?
I have tried numerous foundations throughout the year and I’ve caught myself reaching back to Luminous Silk time and time again. You could compare this foundation to shapewear — I kid you not: invisible and always reliable. Invisible because once buffed into the skin it’s barely noticeable. It’s not matte nor dewy, it sits just right in the middle. Always reliable because whenever in doubt or whatever my skin condition, it’s Luminous Silk I can count on.
A few other things worth mentioning: A genius pump that manages to squirt out just the right amount, no spilling whatsoever. It comes in a whopping 24 shades! I currently use shade 6.5 which suits me perfectly. It lasts all darn day which makes you actually feel guilty to take it off at the end of the day. It looks too good to be wiped away. And finally, it photographs beautifully as it doesn’t contain any SPF which means you’ll need to slather on an extra layer of SPF during the day but at night you’ll be the star of the picture, that’s guaranteed.
