Hello,

today I would like to recommend to you Blushing Fabric Second Skin Blush and Luminous Silk Foundation from Armani-one of the best makeup products on the market.

At the beginning I would like to describe the blush. The Blushing Fabric Second Skin Blush is my must have, a holy grail among the cosmetics, all time favourite blush.

Why I love it so much and most likely you will love it as well? Because unlike many other blushes this one will not accentuate your pores. After the application your skin will remain as smooth as silk. This will be indeed your SECOND SKIN. 

There are many shades available: 01 Shimmering peach, 02 Sicilian Orange, 03 Pink Chiffon, 04 Sienna, 05 Raspberry, and 07 Scarlatto.

I own the blush in  colour Shimmering Peach which is a pink with golden specks. Those specks will add a natural glow to your cheeks. After application your face will look healthy and natural. You will look well rested and fresh even if you are very tired.
At first glance the color may look shockingly bright but after the application it blends in with the skin adjusting to the skin tone. 
Application tips: use your fingers and be careful not to overdo it. You will need only a tiny dot of product, just like this:

Blushing Fabric Second Skin Blush remains untouched by the most part of the day, it may start fading by the end of the day but this is just my own experience and I have oily skin.

Pros:

  • the blush blends beautifully with the skin 
  •  looks so natural that people actually think that IT IS natural
  • won't accentuate your pores
  • the blush has an interesting texture - a mix of a creme and a gel, which gives a silky finish
  • long lasting 
  • very efficient, you need only a small amount (a tiny dot)
Cons:

  • price

The blush is expensive but totally worth the money.

The second product from Armani is its famous Luminous Silk Foundation. It is an InStyle Best Beauty Buy Award winner. I own this foundation in colour 3.75 which is a cool toned porcelain.

For the application I use only hands and it glides on seamlessly. It covers acne scars and makes the pores disappear. I love it and you will love it because
    Luminous Silk Foundation is:
  • very light, it feels like I am not wearing any foundation
  • hydrating
  • it will give you bright complexion
  • healthy looking skin 
  • natural finish
  • skin can breathe
  • weightless liquid texture
  • smooth and even application, you can use only hands
  • no smudging
  • medium/full coverage
  • buildable coverage without creating mask effect
  • long lasting
  • doesn't oxidize (it won't change the colour for orange)
  • effective, only small amount is needed to cover the whole face
  • simple yet elegant packaging
  • it comes in many different colours, over 20 shades everyone will find something suitable

Because of all the above I would recommend Armani Luminous Silk Foundation  to everyone.

Giorgio Armani Blushing Fabric Second Skin Blush, Shimmering Peach, cream gel blush

Hello,
Blushing Fabric Second Skin Blush is my favourite blush. I wanted to buy it since long time but I would always think that the price was far too high. However, a few months ago there was a sale and... became a happy owner of this blush in number 1, Shimmering Peach. I think that a Shimmering Peach should be a Shimmering Raspberry instead because the color doesn't look like a peach at all. It is pink with golden specks and thanks to them cheeks look fresh and radiant. The blush blends beautifully with the skin and looks very natural, people actually think it is natural:). Even the make-up artist was fooled away.
Second Skin blush is a mix of a creme and gel and because of that it gives a silky finish. At first glance, the color seems to be bright, but when applied to the skin it blends nicely and looks more transparent. The color remains untouched by the most part of the day, which is quite something because I have oily skin.
The blush isn't cheap but it lasts for long.
And what do you think?
