Continuing on with my theme of Thursday "splurge" posts I figured I would share my favorite "splurge worthy" foundation.
Aside from my beloved Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua I find myself reaching for the Armani Luminous Silk more than any other foundation I own. I had been looking at it, and wanting to try it for ages (after reading so many rave reviews who wouldn't?!) and finally bit the bullet back in the middle of September. This foundation is a pretty good all rounder in terms working well with different skin types and it photographs like a dream. The lack of SPF means you won't get "flash back" when wearing this foundation, meaning it is perfect for events and big occasions. The formula is a bit dewy and a bit matte meaning that it sits right in the middle of the two and leaves the skin perfectly radiant. The lasting power is pretty phenomenal as well...about 8 hours.
ps : Please excuse the fact that I am holding a NARS lipstick in this photo. It was taken during my five bold lipsticks for Fall post but I wanted to be able to show you all an example photo using the foundation (not taken on my phone!)
