There are no better words to describe the newest foundation from Armani Beauty.
Giorgio Armani Maestro Glow is the first bi-phase foundation elixir that gives you the richest glow in the thinnest texture. The light, silky formula gives you an instant and lasting glow thanks to true skincare oils infused with pure pigments. These oils make the texture comfortable, easy to apply and nourishing for women with drier skin. Each drop perfects the complexion.
Before I get into all the technical aspects of it let’s talk about the results. I received a small sample of it to test a couple weeks before Project Beauty at Neiman Marcus.
After hearing so much buzz in beauty circles about this product I was really excited to try it. I have been wearing it everyday for 2 weeks and have NEVER received so many compliments on my skin. Everyone asked what I was doing differently with my skincare and even said that I had a “happy glow”. It is truly transforming and I firmly believe it is THE product that will bring your skin as close to perfection as it can get. Needless to say the second my sample ran out I headed straight for Neiman Marcus to buy a full size bottle.
One noticeable difference from other foundations is that Maestro Glow is distributed with a dropper and then applied with fingers. At first you will be taken back by how liquid the product is. It is truly a liquid not a cream- almost the same consistency as a droplet of water. Absolutely weightless it flawlessly melts into the skin yet builds nicely. Light as a feather going on, rich and nourishing once it has settled in. You will be shocked at the amazing coverage you get from a product that is so light- it covers all the redness on my skin from my Rosacea and camouflaged any other imperfections. It honestly feels like you simply applied a serum not a foundation yet the coverage is so complete that you achieve flawless skin PLUS bonus it has SPF30!
Despite its fluid texture, Maestro Glow contains no water. Instead the formula contains a high concentration of three nourishing oils (volatile oils that balance the complexion without greasiness, half-volatile oils that give a perfect complexion natural glow and high proportion of natural, nourishing oils with antioxidant properties-apricot oil, passion fruit and rice germ oils-, known for restoring lipid balance in the epidermis and strengthening its natural protection, together with enhancing skin brightness) which leaves skin feeling comfortable all day, without having an oily effect on the skin. Skin appears perfected and feels supple. Excessive sebum is absorbed thanks to fillers thereby allowing better stability of pigments.
To put it simply: This product is skin magic in a bottle and you need it. The ultimate foundation for anyone in a dry climate or someone experiencing dryness in their skin.

Pro Tip: Make sure to shake the bottle before each use- because of the oils in the product it will tend to separate in the bottle when resting.
