I got a sample of the infamous Giorgio Armani Lasting Silk foundation at Nordstrom in December and I finally got a chance to try it out. This was my first time trying it. I wanted to try the Giorgio Armani Luminous silk one but the sales woman advised me that it might it be the best for my oily skin. I told her I was looking for something that had good lasting power and she suggested I try this one. The foundation retails for $65. She did not write down the shade which is why I did not list it. I applied it a little before 3 pm and I removed it at 11:42 pm. I wore it to lunch and to the theatre that day and it held up very nicely. I only retouched one time at 7 pm but I didn't really need to. I went grocery shopping at 10 pm after the theatre and the foundation didn't look shiny at all. I would have to try it to work to see how good it can hold in my fast paced retail environment. I would definitely that it does have a very good lasting power and that's saying a lot because I have trouble dinding higher end foundations that have a good staying power.
