What do Sabrina Carpenter, Leslie Bibb, Sydney Sweeney, Lucy Hale and Sarah Levy have in common? OK, yes, they’re all gorgeous celebrities, but they’re also all fans of Armani Beauty’s Luminous Silk Foundation. As the name suggests, the skin-enhancing liquid goes on like silk to deliver buildable, medium-weight coverage with a luminizing finish (without a shimmer in sight) that leaves complexions nearly flawless and velvety-soft to the touch.

Virtually everyone who’s tried it loves it—just ask any of the 832,000 shoppers who gave it a “love” on Sephora. A big part of its appeal is its versatility; the formula is hyped by every skin type—oily, dry, mature, acne-prone, sensitive—and is available in 40 shades. One 50-something shopper on the hunt for a foundation that “doesn’t show every fine line on [their] face” calls Luminous Silk “an amazing foundation” for dry skin that’s “totally buildable” and “doesn’t look cakey.” A shopper with combination skin raves, “This is the perfect definition of a ‘your skin but better’ foundation,” and notes it “looked the same from start to finish.” A reviewer with oily skin agrees it lasts “all day.” A person with sensitive skin insists “you need this,” before confirming it “does not enhance pores and wrinkles.” But the comment I saw the most by far was: “worth every penny.”

Speaking of pennies, its entire shade range is rarely included in sales. Luckily, if there’s anyone who can spot a low-key sale, it’s a beauty editor. Buried in luxe retailer Violet Grey’s Private Sale, we spotted Armani Beauty’s Luminous Silk Foundation for an unheard of 25 percent off.
