Giorgio Armani Beauty introduced this year – Neo Nude range for skin, cheeks, and lips, with the promise of ‘no-makeup makeup perfection' – ‘INVISIBLE MAKE-UP. VISIBLE PERFECTION'. As is clear from the name, the entire collection is focused on creating that no-makeup makeup look with a luminous sheer glow. If you like natural makeup, like me, this Giorgio Armani Neo Nude collection is going to be right up your alley. I have been playing with two products from the range – Neo Nude A-Blush and Neo Nude Fusion Powder which I think are a must-have if you want to indulge in this collection.
Giorgio Armani Neo Nude Fusion Powder contains a high-performance color fusion emulsion with advanced pigments that maintain a skin-matching veil, which stays true no matter how many touch-ups you make throughout the day. It is available in 12 shades. Floating weightlessly onto the skin like a cloud, the secret to its brilliance lies in Giorgio Armani beauty Laboratories’ new patent*: the water memory formulation process. During formulation, water within the powder evaporates, leaving a powder texture behind. Upon contact with the natural moisture found within the skin, the process is reversed: the powder transforms into a veil-like liquid that becomes one with the skin, avoiding harsh lines, smears or caking over time. A second patent* allows a soft weightless powder – so thin it appears invisible.
Neo Nude Fusion Powder has a medium coverage, I use it mainly on the days I need a very natural look, like a simple touch up to brighten my skin and blur the imperfections and I am good to go. Other days, I am using it as a setting powder. I have Shade 5.5 – Beige which is perfect for my skin when I am not tanned.
The finish is very natural and luminous without looking oily. Skin looks radiant and healthy, I do notice it blurs my problem areas and does not emphasize them. The application is easy, the finely milled powder blends in seamlessly into the skin and does not look cakey. My combination skin, with some part being dry and another oily, it does not cling to the dry areas and overall, the skin looks smooth and luminous. The packaging of the powder is so elegant, the touch and feel are so luxurious.
Giorgio Armani Neo Nude A-Blush gives a wash of color gives skin a healthy flush, so natural it looks like you – but better. The water-based product instantly fuses with the skin, comforting and hydrating whilst simultaneously adding radiance. So light, the products promise to blend seamlessly with one another. The new pointed applicator of all three collects precisely the right dose of formula to accentuate your most natural beauty.
It is a beautiful addition to my blushes, very unique yet very natural. I have shade 51 – raspberry which is a natural pink flush on my cheeks.
It is very lightweight and blends in nicely into the skin, giving the most natural dewy flush to the cheeks. The applicator works nicely to apply both on the cheeks and also on the lips. It stays on my cheeks for almost the whole day, around 7 hours.
