Ok, so you may not know this about us, but we’re kinda low maintenance girls at heart.
Mostly, we like top knots, eating almond butter out of the jar and binge-watching entire seasons of The Kardashians (true story).
And usually, the test of whether or not to buy a product usually comes down to whether or not it fits inside our new Kotur clutch.
Enter: Giorgio Armani’s Luminous Silk Compact. Yes, you heard right. Compact. Like the original Luminous Silk Fluid Foundation didn’t already have enough hype surrounding it, then our friend Mr. Armani goes and re-formulates it into a compact. Hype just hit hysteria levels.
Basically, this little bad boy is hands down one of the best foundations we have ever applied to our skin. And it’s the perfect solution for those of us who fall into the jeans-and-tshirt/topknot-and-sneakers category who want to take it up a notch and apply foundation every day. Compacts are easy, they’re quick, they allow for AM snooze time, they’re portable (and car/bus/train friendly), they’re clutch friendly and we love them hard. Tick, tick, tickety tick.
The dual-use applicator pad has a beige side (to set your foundation and stamp out any persistent/soul-destroying blemishes) while the black side leaves a really lightweight foundation finish. The ultra-fine pressed powder kinda takes the “sweep it under the rug” approach – it blends pretty much flawlessly to correct blemishes and finishes on the skin super bright and silky – and gets it right in the first swipe.
Your skin will look….flawless, matte, awesome.
But sure, if you want to do things that hard way you could go ahead and keep doing what you’re doing. We’ll be over here hitting that snooze button.
Get it here.
