Flawless Finish: Dolce & Gabbana Liquid Luminous Foundation

Type: Liquid Foundation
Skin Type: Normal to Dry
Coverage: Medium to Medium-Full (Buildable)

I think that for every foundation review going forward, I’ll list them in terms of skin type and coverage. I have been testing this foundation out for the last 3 weeks or so, and I feel that I can make such a judgement on it by now.

One of the best things about this foundation is that the colors run parallel to the Dolce & Gabbana Cream Foundation. So my color is exactly the same… Soft Tan. Takes all of the guesswork out of choosing your foundation color in this brand. Love that.

It comes in a typical pump bottle… about 1oz of product. The consistency of this foundation is thick and creamy. It reminds me a LOT of the YSL Teint Eclat foundation.

See… pretty full coverage. Because I am so oily, I’m not a fan of wearing this foundation during the day. Like YSL Teint Eclat, I prefer this for nighttime, when it’s cooler and maybe I want a more dramatic coverage. It has the same type of coverage as Teint Eclat … medium and easily buildable to full. I’ve had great success building it to a full coverage, and still maintaining the integrity and intended finish of the foundation.

Special thanks to Shontay for putting this foundation on my radar. It’s quite lovely. You can find out more about Dolce & Gabbana Liquid Luminous Foundation HERE.

  1. Yay! Glad you reviewed it. I really like it on my dry skin. I, too love that the colors run the same to the creamy foundation. I was curious at first, but it only made since that it did since they use the same names/numbers. I'm glad to hear this is comparable to the YSL foundation because I was so hurt that I can't try that one due to certain ingredients that cause breakouts for me. Between this and the Armani 'foundation' I really need to stop now! I think I have 8 foundations in rotation now.

  2. 8 Foundations is a GREAT selection… now you literally have a foundation for every occasion. LOL I do like it. I prefer it for the medium to heavier coverage, for more dramatic looks. I used on a client for a red carpet event (she is the exact same shade as me) and it worked on her beautifully. It's a definite winner.

  3. Hey! I love that you review and swatch foundations from higher-end makeup brands. Of course, it helps tremendously that we seem to be very similar in terms of skin tone. Where I live, the high-end lines don't seem to want to bring in their darker colours and it annoys me to no end. Your reviews and swatches go a long way in helping whenever I decide to get my foundations from overseas. A big THANK YOU for that. 🙂
