I really can’t believe I’m this late to the GA club! It’s a bit harder for me to purchase higher end products with fear that shades will not work for me because I don’t live near any makeup counters. I really like to get a feel for a product before I decide to invest in them but GA were kind enough to send some items over for me to try out!
They have recently release their new Armani Prima makeup perfecting skincare collection which is so good! It meant to prep the skin before makeup application to create a smooth hydrated canvas. The packaging is the beautiful ivory and gold design, it is scented (very soft fresh scent) so for those with sensitive skin you might want to sample before buying. I was able to test all three items from the range and was really impressed…
Prima Lip & Eye Perfector – This eye cream is so hydrating and I love that it’s packaged in a squeeze tube, you can easily control the amount product you want to dispense. I did test this out on the lips and I prefer using it as an eye cream, for me it’s a texture thing. The idea of slathering a cream on the lips just feels really weird to me but I must say it primes the lips for lipstick very nicely.
Prima Skin Perfector – For those who have oily skin you’ll love this. It’s very creamy initially but once it’s been worked into the skin it starts to mattify. I’ve been using this mainly on my T-zone area and it’s soooo good. I don’t have huge pores but the ones that I do have around my nose become instantly smooth because of this stuff!
Prima Glow-On Moisture Balm – This is a heavier cream that comes in a gorgeous tub. It does have a pasty consistency but on the skin it emulsifies and just melts leaving this radiant glow on the skin. This would be great for dry to normal skin types!
I’m super excited to say I have finally tried the GA Luminous Silk foundation and I’m head over heels! I’m in the shade 6.5 which is a perfect match for my skin tone. I can’t even remember when was the last time I wore a proper foundation and was this happy with it. I now understand the hype behind this and why MUA’s around the world use this in their kits. I barely have to use concealer because of the coverage it provides but doesn’t look or feel heavy! The finish is semi-matte but still has this luminosity to it that I can’t explain. This is seriously the best foundation I’ve tried to date and one of my favorite discoveries of the year so far, yup I said it. It looks beautiful for filming, in photos and most importantly in person.
Huge fan of the brand, big thumbs up from me! Nuff said…
