Today’s blog post goes along with my recent Tester Tuesday video. A first impression review and demo of the new Giorgio Armani Maestro Glow foundation. I wear the shade 4. This incredibly pigmented, yet light-weight foundation, offers a natural radiant full coverage finish. The day that I decided to try out this new high-end, designer foundation, my skin was incredibly red and bumpy due to a reaction from trying too many skincare products at once (#beautybloggerproblems). I was shocked at how well the foundation concealed and covered the redness and smoothed out my skin. For a full demo, review, and check-ins, along with close ups through out the day, please watch my video here.
Many are asking me to compare Maestro Glow to the famous Giorgio Armani luminous silk foundation, it is not the same. They are two completely different products. I have used both. Luminous Silk use to be my go to. I wore it on my wedding day and the year after my wedding. First off, Luminous silk is a traditional foundation formulations and does not include SPF in the product, which makes it perfect for events hands down. Luminous silk does not separate, like the Maestro Glow. I also feel that luminous silk can be more of a natural finish vs. a glow finish, depending on skin type and primers used. While luminous silk is light-weight and beautiful on the skin, Maestro Glow is weightless and even more invisible, still offering full coverage. Maestro Glow has a chemical SPF of 15, which should not cause flashback in photos. Maestro Glow is dispensed through a dropper because of how fluid the formula is. Maestro Glow is also recommended to be applied using fingers. Luminous silk can be used with brushes, sponges, or fingers. The two just cannot be compared, but since I keep getting questions about how they compare there it is. I think because the name include luminous and glow people are thinking it is the same product, but Maestro Glow has a bi-phase technology gives you the richest glow and color payoff with the thinest texture. Maestro Glow is a silky texture, infused with skincare oils perfect for drier skin. Maestro Glow has skincare built in.
What really stood out to me was how the radiant glow the foundation offered, did not make me look oily or greasy, even after 8 hours of wear time. I am very happy with the Maestro Glow and will continue to test it out in the coming weeks.
