Giorgio Armani are one of my favourite highend brands, so I’m always excited by a new Armani launch, especially if it’s a base product.
The Giorgio Armani Designer Essence in Balm Mesh Cushion Foundation is their newest foundation launch, and I am in love with the super sleek packaging design.
Giorgio Armani Designer Essence in Balm Mesh Cushion Foundation
The Giorgio Armani Designer Essence in Balm Mesh Cushion Foundation has a formula that melts onto your skin giving you instant radiance and glow while providing SPF 50/PA+++ protection.
● High covering mesh cushion foundation
● Anti-dullness & instant radiance
● comfort feel
● Maximum sun protection
When using for the first time, Armani recommend that you gently rub the mesh in a circular motion with the applicator several times to activate the formula.
Apply gently by:
– Tapping like a cushion for low coverage
– Rubbing like a compact for medium coverage
– Wiping like a cream for higher coverage
The Designer Essence-In-Balm Mesh Cushion can also be applied with a foundation brush, to deliver higher coverage with a perfect, professional finish.
The Giorgio Armani Designer Essence in Balm Mesh Cushion Foundation formula has been created to offer multiple benefits for the complexion.
They’ve created a combination of electric blue pigments and pearls which counteract dullness and deliver instant radiance too. The skin is protected from both UVA and UVB rays thanks to SPF50/PA+++.
Infused with glycerine and hyaluronic acid, the formula also provides long-lasting hydration to the skin, and the high water composition offers a fresh and lightweight texture.
The foundation’s cushion design with a mesh layer allows for a controlled and even application, whilst the three application gestures (a tap, rub or wipe) offer endlessly adaptable coverage.
The Designer Essence-In-Balm Mesh Cushion delivers effortless perfection tailored to a multi-tasking lifestyle. The result is a radiant complexion that lasts all day with skin feeling moisturised and comfortable.
The Giorgio Armani Designer Essence in Balm Mesh Cushion Foundation is £72 to purchase as a whole, but you can also purchase the puff applicator separately and purchase refills to refill the compact once you’ve bought the full compact.
In all honesty, the shade range isn’t the best but cushion foundations always have a much smaller shade range compared to the average foundation bottle format.
- 2 – light with a cooler undertone
- 3 – light with a neutral undertone
- 4 – medium with a warmer undertone
- 5 – medium with a cooler undertone
There are only four shades of the Giorgio Armani Designer Essence in Balm Mesh Cushion Foundation; 2, 3, 4 and 5. So there’s definitely room for expansion, but if you are able to find a shade match the formula of this new foundation sounds so lovely.
