I have always been a fan of the Armani foundations! When it comes to quality they are a cut above all others.
With the Face Fabric Foundation discontinued, it’s the perfect time to give the new Armani Neo Nude Foundation a try. Judging from its description, it’s almost the same as the Face Fabric foundation, only a lot lighter in texture.
The main difference is the Neo Nude sets to a lovely glossy, satin finish, whereas the Face Fabric sets to a beautiful matte finish.
I haven’t been this excited about a foundation in quite some time now and I can’t wait to share my thoughts and review on the Neo Nude Foundation with you!
The Giorgio Armani Neo Nude Foundation is an ultra-lightweight, buildable foundation that delivers a natural healthy-looking glow, and all-day hydration, with skin food ingredients to top off this makeup delicacy.
Its key selling points are that it’s extremely hydrating and is very buildable. In fact, it’s a lot like a tinted moisturizer in the way that it is hydrating and the coverage that it gives.
The foundation has 17 shades with different tones and undertones. It’s a neat packaging with a glossy peach plastic tube that is the perfect shape and size for the on-the-go, as with most of their foundations.
It’s cute and pretty and touches on the minimal side which I love! Clean, functional and simple is just wonderful and that’s exactly what the Neo Nude is.
The foundation comes in a nice amount of shades with all of the undertones it needs, cool, warm and neutral. So, usually, when I buy foundation I barely need to try it on, I simply go for the lightest shade.
Well, I was in for a shock when I tried the lightest shade of the Neo Nude. It was way too light for me and honestly, that was a first for me!
My recommendation is to go for a shade darker than you usually would because these colours are pretty light. The lightest shade is almost light, and there I was thinking I was the lightest shade that skin gets:)
Formula, Application & Wear Test
One thing Armani knows how to do is a natural-looking foundation which at the same time has good coverage. I absolutely love the Neo Nude Foundation because of its unique natural-looking high-coverage combo.
The Armani Neo Nude Foundation has a divine silky gel texture with a lovely, yet firm consistency. It applies smoothly and easily, almost like applying a moisturiser.
I tried out the foundation and honestly, I love it! Here is the results layer by layer.
Layer 1: my skin looked amazing, almost photoshopped as if I didn’t have pores! (I wish!) While the redness and other colour imperfections were still slightly visible, it definitely gave me a smooth face.
Layer 2: the redness was covered up nicely and the dark spots were slightly masked. Even the dark circles under my eyes were less noticeable.
Layer 3: the imperfections were all nicely covered up and it still felt like one light layer! If you’re not impressed now you have gotta be a robot!
I really like that it builds up so perfectly. It doesn’t patch or crumble in dryer areas and the glowy satin finish is really beautiful. It has a highlight kind of glow that doesn’t look oily or shiny.
In simple English, the glow is just the right balance and adds so much to the skin, especially during these days when dewy glowing skin is all the rage.
I can’t even begin to describe how youthful the Neo Nude Foundation makes my skin look, all the pores and fine lines get covered beautifully and seamlessly.
Due to the hydrating ingredients like hyaluronic acid, the skin doesn’t get dried out at all when wearing the foundation. The best part is that it stays that way throughout the day!
Is it worth buying?
This is the foundation you need if you’re after that perfect skin-like, no-makeup makeup look! It is extremely easy to apply with its amazing creamy formula and feels amazing on, or to rephrase, wearing it feels like you aren’t wearing anything!
I love this new foundation from Armani and I think it’s a wonderful replacement for my Face Fabric foundation. It’s especially good for aging skin and drier skin that tends to get dry patches.
Since it’s June now and the weather is becoming hotter, my skin is naturally becoming oilier. That being said, the Neo Nude foundation hasn’t given me any trouble at all even during the heat. It somehow manages to keep the oil at bay.
You know by now how much I love Armani foundations and the Neo Nude has just proven how worthy they are of this love! It’s silky smooth to apply, it doesn’t feel greasy and the coverage is natural but there!
Their foundations are seriously amazing in how they feel and how they look and the Neo Nude has an added bonus, it’s also more affordable. Win, win and win!
