Giorgio Armani Beauty recently released their newest foundation: the Power Fabric Foundation. This product is a full-coverage liquid foundation with SPF 25. This foundation comes in 20 shades and promises to give a matte finish while feeling lightweight on the skin. Here is what the Giorgio Armani site says about the Power Fabric Foundation:
“POWER FABRIC combines full coverage with an ultra-light formula. Upon application, the texture melts into the skin, effectively blurring imperfections with an incredibly lightweight matte veil that feels like you’re not wearing make-up at all. With a SPF 25 filter, power fabric offers effective daily UVA and UVB protection up to the promise of broad-spectrum SPF protection.”
The shade range of this foundation is very impressive. It ranges from the shade 1 (perfect for very fair skin) to shade 14.5 (perfect for very deep skin). My skin is at my lightest and I found shade 4.0 to be the perfect match (I will use a darker shade in the Summer).
The Power Fabric Foundation comes in very sleek, luxurious packaging with a pump. The packaging is stunning and I found the pump dispensed just the right amount of product. I needed 2 pumps to achieve the full coverage that I wanted (when applied with a beauty blender). You can achieve medium coverage with only 1 pump.
This foundation is SUPER light-weight. You cannot feel it on your skin at all! I was worried that the finish would be too matte but it is actually more of a velvet matte finish and looks very natural on the skin.
I tested the Power Fabric Foundation along with the Luminous Silk Foundation and was surprised at how similar they were upon first application. The Power Fabric Foundation is slightly fuller coverage and slightly more matte. However, they both feel incredibly lightweight on the skin.
After an hour of wear, the difference in these foundations was more noticeable. The half of my face with Luminous Silk looked more glowy and radiant while the half with the Power Fabric remained more matte. Throughout the day, the Power Fabric held up on my combo skin better than the Luminous Silk.
In the end, I love both foundations. I prefer the Power Fabric for long workdays where I want more coverage and I do not want to touch-up during the day. However, you cannot beat the gorgeous finish of the Armani Luminous Silk. (My husband preferred the Luminous Silk on my skin). So, I will definitely choose the Luminous Silk for nights out or special occasions.
If you already love the Luminous Silk foundation but want something slightly more matte, slightly more long wearing, and slightly more full coverage, then I would highly recommend the Power Fabric Foundation.
