Talk about a cult classic. These six life-changers don’t just talk the talk — they also can walk the beauty walk! From foundation to a fierce lip, and even the brush that does it all, these Giorgio Armani Beauty products have been staples in the industry for years (and years to come). And we’re not just saying that — they have the trophies to prove it! Er, more like award-winning seals, but you get the point.
There’s nothing like a good beauty buy that really does the trick — from covering up any imperfections to giving your lashes a big, BIG boost, here’s why these must-haves should join your beauty bag, like, TODAY.
1. Luminous Silk Foundation
A foundation, hydrator, airbrush, highlighter and miracle in one — the Luminous Silk Foundation feels like just that (ahem, luminous silk). Change the way you feel about makeup entirely by ditching the sticky, cakey-coverage and wearing something that feels like your natural skin (but even better). Plus, it’s buildable, keeps skin silky smooth and stays put all day — sounds like exactly what we need!

2. Coverage Foundation
Foundation Rule #1: Find a coverage option that works perfectly for your skin type, texture, tone and undertones. Absolutely no exceptions. Luckily, that’s exactly what you’ll get with the Maestro! If you’re looking for even coverage that feels practically non-existent (who isn’t, right), this is your go-to.
It only takes a few fluid drops to correct imperfections, all while allowing skin’s natural luminosity to shine through (and no, that’s NOT code for grease). In the world of foundation, it doesn’t get any better than this, ladies …

We’re sure you’ve been hearing the terms “highlighting,” and “illuminating” thrown around a lot lately (maybe even strobing?) — and there’s a good reason why! The appearance of healthy skin is always in and the Fluid Sheer will help you land a glowing complexion — without going overboard on shimmer. There’s always that one person, right? Add a few drops of this translucent stuff to your foundation (or use it alone) for a boost of radiance that will fool everyone into thinking you had a full night’s sleep (because who has those anymore, anyway?)!
Our love of long, dramatic lashes is borderline obsessive … and we’re the first to admit it. Thankfully, the Eyes to Kill Mascara can lend your lashes exceptional volume, thickness and length due to its oversized brush, fusion of wax and ultra-black pigment. And what’s almost better than all of those things combined, is the clump-free coating it provides!
Plus it takes less strokes to land the “falsie” look, which means you can finally get to work on time! Oh, c’mon, you know it’s true …
A lipstick that doesn’t crack and make our lips look dry and corpse-like is one that gets an award in our beauty book too! D’Armani Lipstick features a creamy, feather-light texture that hydrates like a balm. The formula contains a revolutionary component that is able to retain twice its volume in water for 8 hours of serious shine and moisture! Are we sure we’re still talking about a lipstick here?! Yes and yes — you need this.
Who would have thought that brushes could win awards? Try this one and you’ll fully understand why (and simultaneously never understand why you ever used another brush before). If you want a flawless foundation application (and we think know you do!), the Blender Brush features a flat shape with rounded edges to precisely follow the curves of your face, dispensing the perfect amount of makeup for an airbrushed finish. Seriously … airbrushed. We can’t say no to that!
