My new go to makeup brand is Armani. Most people use the luminous silk foundation; however, I prefer a liquid foundation that has a lot of coverage and that dries matte. My go to liquid foundation is Armani Power Fabric (shade 8 for summer, and shade 7 for winter).
The thing with liquid foundation that has full coverage, is you need to let your skin breathe. That’s why I wanted to get something lightweight to wear on the weekends so I can give my skin a break. I was super intrigued when I saw Armani launched their new Face Fabric Foundation. Think of it as it’s version of Laura Mercier’s tinted moisturizer. It has medium-sheer coverage. It’s good for normal, combo & oily skin. It’s basically a liquid foundation with light, buildable coverage and a mousse-to-powder matte finish.
What does it do?
The Face Fabric ($49) blurs the look of pores and imperfections with a natural matte finish. At first touch, the foundation is a soft mousse, but as it spreads across the skin it melts into a powder. When I first tested it out, it truly melted into my skin and felt super creamy but in a very lightweight way. This foundation has a second skin fit thanks to its 3D stretch technology, which allows the formula to move naturally with your skin. It leaves the complexion looking retexturized and smooth.
How does it compare to other products?
It gives more coverage than a tinted moisturizer, but less than a standard foundation, and hides imperfections without looking makeup-y. My shade is 3.5
When will I use it?
I definitely will use this during the weekends when I’m running errands. Or when I’m vacation and don’t want to wear a full face of foundation. My makeup also doesn’t last all day so I will probs use this a mid-day touch up to my power fabric since it’s buildable. This is a perfect foundation to use to get that healthy glow. But if you’re looking to cover up red spots or any blemishes, this prob isn’t the foundation for you.
