Giorgio Armani Maestro Fusion Foundation

This foundation from Armani is a great alternative to a powder foundation and for those who like their skin matte.
This liquid is really lightweight and even though I found it to be super matte it didn’t feel chalky.
It does dry quickly so work fast but once blended it smoothes out the skin providing a second skin like finish.
One layer buffed in will even out pigmentation and smooth the appearance of the skin. Build up the layers for a fuller cover.

This lasted well on my skin with just one touch up of powder needed during the day.
If you like a matte finish foundation but have a dryer skin I would maybe mix a little of your moisturiser in with this to give it a bit more fluidity over any dry areas.
I really loved this foundation and even though it is a higher price at £38.00 I would say it’s well worth it.


However, I didn’t like the style of bottle. It has a pipette style lid. I think this must be because the product is very thin and runny however I found it to be messy and at £38.00 I don’t want to loose a drop!
The pipette is good to put the product directly onto the brush rather than waste it by pouring onto your hand.
The 30ml bottle would last a good few months if using for a natural cover. 
Available in 12 shades that are mixed between yellow and pink based. 
Shade range would suit fair, pale skin through to medium and dark skin tones.



  1. this is my favourite foundation of the moment although I think the pipette is a bit messy too.

  2. Ooh sounds perfect and i love the bottle :)

  3. I'm a sucker for any sort of gimmicky releases and the little pipette would actually be reason enough for me to buy this. I know I know, advertisers must love people like me :)

  4. What brush should I use with this foundation?

  5. I did not like this. I have dry skin and tried it during winter... I thought it would make my skin looks gorgeous as all the rave about it but all it did was diminishes the redness... I was amazed by the texture though. Wow! It does not transfer at all. It feels like nothing on the skin. I was about to come back to Sephora and buy it just because of the texture itself but I looked myself at the mirror just 3 hours after applying and Maestro was already fading, my skin looked dry as ever. It might be good for those with oily/combo skin but it doesn't give much coverage or last longer.
