When it comes to foundations I’ll be the first to admit that I don’t keep an open mind. I have my staple formulas that I grab for specific occasions and they’re usually all from one brand, Chanel. It’s not that I’m a makeup snob or that I don’t get all the feels when a new product launches. I love trying new brands and new formulas but time and time again I’ve been let down and completely disappointed, reverting back to my usual ways.  It’s not easy to find a great foundation if you live in a hot and humid climate. If you have combination or oily skin, forget about it. Everything I’ve tried which includes high-end, middle tier and drugstore brands has either made me break out, smeared all over the place or felt far too heavy. Is it really too much to ask for a medium to full coverage, matte finish foundation that will last all day and not feel like cake face?! I thought the answer was ‘yes,’ until I discovered Giorgio Armani’s new Power Fabric foundation.

When I first heard about the Power Fabric foundation by Giorgio Armani, I was curious because I assumed that it would be different from the ever so popular Luminous Silk. While most of the beauty loving world is obsessed with Luminous Silk, I simply can’t wear it because of its dewy finish and light coverage. It’s my favorite foundation to use during makeovers because it’s so gorgeous on most women, but it’s not meant for me. I was pleasantly surprised to learn that I assumed correct. Power Fabric is the complete opposite of Luminous Silk. It has medium to full coverage, a matte finish, it’s long-wear with SPF 25 and it feels weightless on the skin. In my full review down below I go into further detail about why I absolutely love this foundation.



I still can’t believe that I’ve found a foundation that fits my needs so perfectly. If you have combination to oily skin and love the flawless appearance of a medium to full coverage foundation, take my word for it, Power Fabric will change your world!
