The Giorgio Armani Maestro Glow Nourishing Fusion Makeup Bi-Phase Elixir £40 could quite possibly be the beauty product with the longest name ever, but what is it?! That’s exactly how I felt when I got it as I don’t think the name reveals what it actually is. The Bi-Phase Elixir comes in a total of nine different shades and boasts an impressive description..
Giorgio Armani say;
MAESTRO GLOW foundation enhances the complexion with a fresh, natural radiance thanks to a surprisingly light texture, coupled with a perfecting buildable coverage. Like MAESTRO FUSION MAKE-UP, despite its fluid texture, MAESTRO GLOW foundation contains no water. Instead the formula contains a high concentration of nourishing oils, but without an oily effect on skin.
Skin is perfected and feels nude and supple to the touch. MAESTRO GLOW foundation glides onto skin, procuring an immediate moisturising sensation with nourishing comfort and lasting glow. It also features SPF 30, for daily UV protection. Perfect for dry skin, it nourishes with a real skincare effect just after four weeks. Nine shades are available to suit all skin tones, from light to deep.
In a nutshell, the new Giorgio Armani Maestro Glow Nourishing Fusion Makeup Bi-Phase Elixir is a brand new innovative foundation formula which doesn’t contain any water like typical foundations do, instead it contains nourishing oils which you can see separated within the glass bottle before use but you have to shake the bottle until they’re fully blended before use.
The reason it contains oils, is so that it has a skincare effect on the skin, which is especially effective for those with dry skin as the oils help to nourish the skin whilst the foundation offers buildable coverage and a pretty glow. The bottle contains a pipette which you dispense the foundation from, and the consistency is unlike any other foundation I’ve ever tried.
From the nine shades on offer, I have the shade 4 which is obviously much too dark for my super pale skin – or is it? When I first saw the shade, I thought it would be ridiculously too dark for me but it’s actually very usable. If I apply a very light application, the colour blends seamlessly into my skin without making me look orange but if I go ahead and apply a generous application, then my skin is indeed left looking pretty dark compared to my neck so I have to be very light handed.
However my favourite way to use the Giorgio Armani Maestro Glow Nourishing Fusion Makeup Bi-Phase Elixir, is as a liquid bronzer which I find it excels at as it’s such a lovely, natural colour with just one drop which I love to apply with a beauty blender over the top of my foundation.
I would be really intrigued to try the paler shades of the Giorgio Armani Maestro Glow Nourishing Fusion Makeup Bi-Phase Elixir so I could build up the coverage, as I can’t get away with using too much of this particular shade but it’s such an intriguing product and one I really recommend trying next time you’re near a Giorgio Armani counter, and it even contains an SPF of 30 which is perfect for Summer.
