Giorgio Armani Face Fabric Foundation
Labels: Product Reviews
What it is: "Giorgio Armani translates his skills in texture and layering into its unique range of cosmetic textiles, a wardrobe for face.
Face fabric is an invisible makeup with a 3D Micro-fil™ technology.
Its unique Micro-fil™ formulations bring lightness and fluidity to makeup, allowing infinite blending and layering to enhance the natural glow of the skin.
A subtle, neutral palette is accented with two shades – porcelain and apricot – to be used alone to create a healthy-looking glow, combined with any of the shades to boost the color, or alone to sculpt or highlight the complexion." (Giorgio Armani)

PROS: I fell in love with Face Fabric the first time I had it on. It's so light and sheer. The consistency is silky soft. Imagine a feather caressing against your skin, this is exactly how soft it feels like. Aside from the soft texture, it not only even out my skin tone but made my skin glow. I have had people asked me what kind of skincare products I've been using lately because they notice that my skin is more even toned and brightened. Another reason why I love this is because I have had it on for literally over 8 hours and my skin seriously looked the same or nearly the same at the end of the day. The best part is, because it's so sheer and soft, I hardly feel that I'm wearing makeup at all.
CONS: It has only SPF12. I like my sunblock/tinted foundation to be at least SPF25. Although, it's ideal for the summer since it's light and soft but the SPF is way too low for a face that's only want to play in the sun :( Summer is almost over though, so my face get to play with softness again. LOL.
Here's my before and after pictures:
And here is me wearing my favorite foundation at the moment. I gained 5lbs within the last week. Can you tell my face is a little bit swollen? The foundation is a good cover though....or not. LOL
So would I buy again? Definitely. I actually got some of my friends to convert too! I don't recommend buying it online as the shade tend to be a little off. I actually got a shade lighter than what I normally wear and so did some of my friends. Go to the beauty counter and try it on. That way you can touch, feel, and see for yourself if it's suitable for you.
Enjoy LABOR DAY weekend everyone!!!
