Light, Flawless Summer Foundation: Giorgio Armani Face Fabric Review

Have I told you lately how much I hate silicon? Ugh! The primer world is taken over with silicon bases and now suddenly foundations are popping up left and right with a silicon base. No please, no! I truly hate silicon in my face products. It feels terrible on my face and on a rare occasion I've been to known to break out because of it.


That's why I was ever so shocked when I got my hands on Giorgio Armani Face Fabric a few months ago and fell in love!

With it's base of silicon I was sure I'd hate the feel of Giorgio Armani Face Fabric but turns out I love it, especially now that the weather is warmer!




If you like your foundation extremely light, subtle, sheer, and flawless you should indulge in a tube of this. The foundation is a unique silicone based formula that's neither oily, sticky, or uncomfortable to wear. I normally feel like I'm wearing a mask when I indulge in silicon based primers or foundations but this gives my skin plenty of breathing room with very light coverage.

The product is ideal for mattifying as I can get good continuous wear out of it for about 7 hours without having to blot or reapply. The finish is dewy and evens out skin tone creating a brilliant canvas for makeup. It is advertised as a "tint" so it can't be called a foundation however it feels like a cross between a primer, foundation, and a tinted moisturizer all in one to me.




I'd recommend this if you like lighter coverage in the warmer weather. It's particularly fantastic at holding in for longer periods at a time where as many tinted moisturizers and foundations melt away quickly in warmer weather. It looks so natural and pretty on that it's perfect for a natural, fresher makeup look. The product contains an SPF of 12 so you'll want to add a bit of your own sunblock for extra protection.

All in all Giorgio Armani Face Fabric is one of my must have makeup items for the Summer. Muse Approved for purchased for sure!



Who might like it?
  • Anyone who wants a lighter foundation product for Summer.
  • Those who want a long wearing tint that evens out skin tone and creates a fresh, natural finish.
  • Anyone who likes their makeup simple and fresh.

Anyone a lover?

Hi Muse,

I have the Armani Face Fabric No. 3 and I've reveiwed it here:

I love it as much as you do! Fortunately it is a very sheer tint, because No. 3 made me look quited tanned...but not fake or orange! I really recommend this for fair skin tones that want to look sun-kissed.

P.S. Aishwarya should be out in the U.S. right now...

great review hun :-D

It's truly a fab one for Summer.

I know I noticed some shades were too orange or tan...but the fairer ones weren't good either. It's hard to get a good color match :P

I've been looking for her but no joy yet hehe!
