I have always been a fan of the Giorgio Armani foundations, when it comes to quality they are a cut above all others. Since the Face Fabric Foundation was discontinued, I figured it was the perfect time to give the new Armani Neo Nude Foundation a try.
Where the Face Fabric Foundation is more of a foundation, the Neo Nude is more of a tinted moisturizer. Interestingly, Armani recently rebranded the Neo Nude. It used to be called the Neo Nude Foundation and now it’s called the Neo Nude Tinted Moisturizer, which is actually a more accurate description. Eventhough it’s a different foundation type, I was excited to give it a try, mainly because I love tinted moisturizers!
Read on to see my full review of the Giorgio Armani Neo Nude Tinted Moisturizer.

What is the Armani Neo Nude Tinted Moisturizer
The Giorgio Armani Neo Nude Tinted Moisturizer is an ultra-lightweight, buildable tinted moisturizer that delivers a natural healthy-looking glowy satin-finish, all-day hydration along with beautiful coverage.
The tinted moisturizer comes in 24 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. I still have the old packaging, but both are pretty similar.
|Skin Type:||Normal, Dry, Combination|
Neo Nude Tinted Moisturizer Shades
The tinted moisturizer comes in a generous amount of shades with all of the undertones: cool, warm and neutral. When it comes to choosing a shade for my skin, usually, it’s pretty straight forward, 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 fairer than usual. The lightest shade is almost white, and there I was thinking I was the lightest shade that skin gets:)
The Formula of The Armani Neo Nude
The Armani Neo Nude Tinted Moisturizer has a divine silky gel texture with a lovely, yet firm consistency. Made from skin-loving ingredients, you don’t only get pretty coverage, but also healthy skin!
- Hyaluronic Acid: Helps attract water into the skin for a smoothing, plumping effect
- Glycerin: Locks in moisture for long-lasting hydration
My Honest Review of the Neo Nude Tinted Moisturizer
I tried out the tinted moisturizer and it’s quickly become my holy grail. I’ve never been a fan of makeup that feels like makeup! The cakey feeling that full-coverage foundation makes me want to wipe all my makeup off.
That’s never the case with the Neo Nude Tinted Moisturizer. Although you won’t get the coverage that a full-coverage foundation gives, you get skin like, natural-looking coverage that’s buildable and most important, comfortable!
It applies smoothly and easily, even on my drier areas like around my nose and mouth areas. It has a highlight kind of glow that doesn’t look oily or shiny. I’m usually not one for a glowy product, but I guess as I’m aging, my skin needs that extra glow!
As you can see from the swatches, the tinted moisturizer is highly pigmented and blends out beautifully. Although from the image it looks like the shade is too dark for me, bear in mind, the swatch is on the back of my arm, which is quite a few shades lighter than my face. It matches my face perfectly and seamlessly blends in.
The Neo Nude Tinted Moisturizer covers my pores and fine lines without settling in them. This is really important for me because my large open pores are quite a big complex of mine!
Due to the hydrating ingredients like hyaluronic acid, the skin doesn’t get dried out at all when wearing the foundation and it stays that way throughout the day! I usually set the tinted moisturizer with a setting powder, and sometimes a setting spray too. It helps my makeup stay on longer and better.
Pros and Cons of the Neo Nude Tinted Moisturizer
- Doesn’t settle in lines
- Skincare ingredients
- Buildable coverage
- Not suitable for oily skin
- Not cruelty-free

Is the Armani Tinted Moisturizer for You?
Ideal for dry, aging, mature and even combination skin, this moisturizer gives the skin a glow with a healthy, no-makeup makeup look. If you love a skin-like finish, you’ll really enjoy this tinted moisturizer.
Armani recommends it for all skin types, including oily. However, I think it works best on drier skin types although combination skin can benefit from it too.
