Beauty Splurge vs. Steal of the Week: Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation

Beauty Splurge vs. Steal: Giorgio Armani Foundation

In this weekly column, I’m bringing you my favorite budget-friendly beauty products (and their high-end equivalents!) that are available online and in-store. This week, we’re chatting luxurious foundation (!). Also make sure to check out my blog, for even more beauty product reviews and tips.

Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation has pretty much dominated every foundation beauty award for the past decade, making it a staple in every makeup artist’s arsenal, as well as every makeup fanatic’s makeup bag…but, guys, it costs $62. So what makes it so fabulous? Well it’s oil-free and weightless but also magically really hydrating and makes everyone’s face look like pure silk – I’m not exaggerating – but listen, I get it…it’s a cult favorite, it’s Armani, it’s fabulous, but when I discovered a similar product, I was PRETTY excited, I can’t lie.
