Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation - Review!

Hello beauty bugs!!
Today I'm going to bring you a review of the ever famous Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk foundation!
Lily Pebbles and Vivianna Does Makeup are always raving about this foundation, so when my boyfriend bought me it for my birthday I was over the moon!! 

Firstly, I love the packaging of this foundation! I suppose for over £35 a bottle it should be beautiful, but I love the frosted glass and the little Armani logo on the front of the lid.
Also the pump doesn't deposit too much product, that's always annoying when you feel like you're wasting such an expensive product!

Now for the DREADED makeup-less before picture!
As you can see, my skin has a few issues! 
I've been getting so many spots lately, as I'm writing this I'm wearing a charcoal mask from Origins to try and draw all of the nastiness out of my pores!
Also I have dark circles and some redness.

It's completely evened out my skintone, covered the spots and some of the dark circles.
This is before I've used any other makeup like concealer or powder.
The colour I'm wearing is 02 (not quite sure what happened to 01, as there doesn't seem to be one!) and the shade range is pretty good, ranges all the way from light skinned to dark skinned, I hate it when foundations leave some skintones out!

This is what it looked like when I'd put the rest of my makeup on, nice flawless base which makes me less embarrassed to be seen in public!!
I wore this makeup for 6 hours at work, and as I work in a kitchen it gets pretty hot and sweaty at times in there so it's a great test for foundations!

6 hours later.....
I'm definitely a lot oilier, but as I work in a kitchen as I said that's not surprising! My blush is still on which is always a sign of a good foundation, but my concealer is fading and creasing a little bit, I used the Collection Lasting Perfection concealer and I find it to be pretty non-creasing, but to find a few lines at this time of the night isn't uncommon with any foundation underneath it.
It's worn off quite a lot on my forehead but that's just because of the band of my hat that I have to wear whilst in the kitchen!

Overall, this foundation is definitely a great one! I don't know whether I'd rave about it as much as some people have, but I always wear it when I want a bit more coverage or for a special occasion.
It has a great shade selection, gorgeous packaging and a lovely satin finish, although after a few hours wear shine is definitely noticeable, and you would need to touch up with powder, especially if you have oily skin which I don't usually.

Lots of love! x
