Armani Luminous Silk Foundation Photos + Swatches of shades: 4 – 4.25 – 4.5 – 5 – 5.5

Hi and welcome to GirlGetGlamorous!  I did a full review of Armani Luminous Silk foundation before in this blog post, but wanted to share some more swatches with you.

I decided to invest in a few more shades for my makeup artist kit.  I love how the foundation looks on almost every skin type, so I knew it was time to splurge and add some of these to my pro kit for clients.

For this order, I picked up another bottle of shade 4.25 (my personal shade) and shades 4.5, 5, and 5.5. The Luminous Silk foundation comes in a frosted glass container which makes the shades look very similar in the bottle, but you can see how much these shades vary in the cheek swatches below.

  1. I had recieved an email to get a free Armani luminous silk foundation and tried I to apply for but couldnt find the fkr it
    Can you please help I never had Armani anything and would love this free product.

    • Hi Marisa! I wish I could help, but I am not sure. I paid for these foundations all myself for my makeup artist kit.

      I hope you can find the email!

  2. Hi Molly,
    I have been using shade 5 and received compliments that it was bang on. But in natural light I have noticed that it looks peach/light orange on my skin. I have been unable to get samples to swatch, and in store lighting at Sephora does not help. Unfortunately I stocked up during the Sephora sale and am now stuck. Any recommendations? Or a shade recommendation? I love the finish of the product.

  3. Hi.
    I’ve been using 4.5 in armani luminous but it seems to be a bit too pale. Thinking to go a tiny bit darker (but not pink ). Any suggestions?
    Thank you.

    • @Molly Gardner, i current have the 4.5 but found it a bit too dark and through research on your website it seems that 5 is actually lighter. Sephora rep also said the text description for 5 is light and for 4.5 is light to medium which is super strange!! Would you help confirm 5 looks lighter than 4.5? Or is it that 4.5 oxidizes more? Thank you so much

    • @Molly Gardner,
      Thank you so much for your reply.
      I tried 5.2 (a bit too peach) and 5.25 (definitely too pink).
      I was looking at the colours and was undecided between 3.5 and 5. I’ll go with your recommendation!
      Thanks again.

  4. Hi,

    I’ve been using drugstore makeup (concealer, foundation, powder) for 25 or so years but now that I’m 41 I need to up my game. I recently upped it to Clinique Even Better. I dont feel comfortable leaving the house without makeup and powder to set it but the powder makes my skin look dry. Does the Armani Luminous Silk require a powder to set it or can you recommend another medium to full coverage foundation for my aging skin? Thanks for your time!
