Giorgio Armani Maestro Fusion Makeup is Life-Changing. Seriously.
There are few makeup products that I would deem ‘life-changing.’ Giorgio Armani’s new Maestro Foundation is definitely one of them. It has become my go-to daily foundation since I got my hands on it in July. I have waited two months to post about it because I wanted to give it a proper run…and to be quite frank, it was hard to write about because it is so different and is so fantastic.
What I love most about it is that it doesn’t feel like foundation. It looks like regular foundation in the bottle but once you start applying, it’s unlike anything I’ve ever tried. Applying this is as close as you can get to makeup magic. Seriously.
I love how my skin looks when I wear this because it looks like my skin but better. Way better.
The first thing I noticed when I opened the bottle was the eye dropper applicator — very unique for a foundation. You squeeze the top to get product and then apply (I use my fingers or a kabuki brush). I only need a small drop to cover the areas I want to cover. The fluid spreads very evenly over the skin. Blending is a dream. It literally feels like it disappears on your skin and suddenly my skintone is even and luminous. Sigh. The consistency is as thin as water but once on your skin it feels dry but is not drying.
It’s so difficult to explain — it’s definitely something that needs to be experienced in person.
I also like that it offers a Broad Spectrum SPF 15 — I wore this all summer and loved that it added that extra layer of sun protection. It never broke me out and coverage lasts all day. I’d highly recommend if you prefer high-end foundation and/or are looking for something that feels light but still gives coverage. Here’s a look at how it improves my skin: the before (no makeup), with the foundation, and the final look. Click to enlarge.
Available as of October at Holt Renfrew, the Giorgio Armani Maestro Foundation is priced at $68 in Canada.
Have you come across a ‘life-changing’ product lately?
