Giorgio Armani Lasting Silk UV Compact Foundation
Lasts: More than 12 hours
8:30 A.M. The powder, applied with a sponge, stays exactly where you put it, so blending is a little difficult.
12:00 P.M. My skin has the same smooth look it did when I left my apartment in the morning.
3:00 P.M. Skin feels oily, so I use blotting papers, but the foundation doesn't move.
9:00 P.M. Use makeup-removing towelettes, then wash my face with a mild cleanser. Rub a cotton pad with toner on my face and still see traces of color, so I wash my face again to remove any residue.
