Believe the Hype

armaniArmani's liquid foundation really is as awesome as everyone says it is.

I mulled/obsessed over this foundation for nearly four years (I guess long, drawn out obsessions are a habit of mine).  The Armani foundation gets an insane amount of press from celebrities and makeup artists and wins countless best beauty picks in magazines (including InStyle's 2009 Best Liquid Foundation).  I've used many different liquid foundations in my lifetime - Bobbi Brown, Laura Mercier, custom foundation that doesn't even have a name - and this is by far the best.

The product lives up to its name; it truly feels as though you're applying luminous silk (whatever that is) to your skin.  The finished product is an insanely smooth and silky skin texture.  In short, Armani foundation provides the perfect amount of coverage without looking overdone.

Don't wait four years to try it like I did.  Start living your life now.
