Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation – 2

Another foundation that is way too light for me. I was given this, so it’s totally nice of them but is just a wrong foundation for me. Not only it’s the wrong shade, this is a luminous foundation. Means that it’s not a matte one, so it’s not something I will use. It’s a watery one, but it’s just pigmented. A bit goes a Long way. With just a slight pump, I can’t seems to get the foundation to sheer down. It’s just so thick on my face. Also, not sure why it’s call silk, when it doesn’t feel like one. But I’m sure this will suit normal to dry skin who wants a bit more coverage in their foundation. I’m just not it. 


Acqua di Gioia Eau Fraiche


Armani launches its new fragrance Acqua di Gioia Eau Fraiche in early 2013. The fragrance is a new version of the original Acqua di Gioia perfume from 2010. Other editions include Acqua di Gioia Essenza from 2011 and Acqua di Gioia Eau de Parfum Satinee from 2012. Acqua di Gioia Eau Fraiche is a fresher and lighter version of the fragrance that celebrates natural beauty.

The composition is inspired by delicate breeze, gentle shower of water and soft green leaves. Aquatic notes are more pronounced, while the floral are softened compared to the original. It opens with sparkling notes of grapefruit, Primofiore lemon and mandarin peel leading to the floral – aquatic heart of ylang-ylang, jasmine tea and jasmine water. In the background, cedar wraps around musk and brown sugar to provide long lasting effect.

It’s a very fresh high end EdT. Has a very light floral scent. First spray is quite strong and it lingers on to a light mix scent and in the end it become quite jasmine scented. I really am still bad at figuring scents. But it quite a nice scent. Even as a EdT it’s still very strong. I like it for work. Cause it feels good but still quite light enough to use in the day.
