Giorgio Armani Crema Nuda

As if I wasn't obsessed with Armani Beauty enough. They have created the single most luxurious foundation I have ever laid eyes upon. The jar screams to be displayed on your bathroom countertop. Here are my thoughts on this $200 jar of foundation. Yes, you read that correctly. 



The product: Beautiful packing - duh. The jar itself is generously sized at 1.69 ounces (the Armani Luminous Silk Foundation bottle is 1 ounce for comparison). What's inside the jar is even better. Armani has foundation down to a science. This literally does what it claims it will do: "The new generation of tinted cream: the first supreme nude glow treatment with performance power that surpasses BB and CC creams. Transparent pigments suspended into a water based texture allow the skin to reflect light in multiple directions for an enhanced glow while blurring imperfections. The specially blended formula contains Armani’s exclusive anti-aging complex Reviscentalis to improve skin radiance and reveal younger looking skin. Hyaluronic acid and mannose complete the formula by adding deep hydration with a weightless feel. Available in Six Glow Enhancing Shades." 

It truly leaves your skin glowing, dewy, youthful, moisturized, and just plain perfect. 

Cons: The only downside to this is that I would not wear it to do full blown makeup. It's way too moisturizing and maybe not the full blown coverage you would want for a special event. This is a daytime foundation. It replaces your moisturizer and whatever daytime foundation/tinted moisturizer you use. To spend $200 on a daytime face makeup kind of hurts. BUT it will last for probably eternity. 

Skin type: If you have super oily skin this may not be the product for you. For my dry skin gals- you have found your favorite product! My skin is oily, but can also be super dry if not adequately moisturized. I usually don't wear makeup during the day, so I wore this alone with no powder, etc. My skin looked beautiful throughly the day, but by late afternoon I was a bit shiny. 

I would recommend getting a sample before shelling out the cash for this one. Armani is usually so great about giving out samples.
