Hello girls and guys,

How are you all doing? My life has been a little bit crazy for a few days and now everything is back to normal. A few weeks back I went to Paris gallery to get a full coverage foundation. Full coverage foundations are not really my thing. Though my skin is not that perfect, I still love medium or light coverage foundations. But I should own a full coverage foundation,right? I actually went to get the Estee lauder double wear foundation, but the salesgirl claimed the Dolce & Gabbana to be better for my skin type, which by the way is combination. So I thought of trying it out. After using the foundation for a few times now, this is my review of the Dolce & Gabbana Perfect Luminous liquid foundation.

My experience with the Dolce & Gabbana perfect luminous liquid foundation

The Dolce & Gabbana foundation comes is a transparent glass bottle with a gold top and the name and other things written in gold. The pump dispenser is our favourite right, this one scores a point here. Only the right amount of foundation comes out with a single pump, that’s a relief. I don’t want too much foundation to come out as the price is quite high.

I already told you I bought this foundation because I was told this was a full coverage foundation. Well, that’s not true. The foundation gives light to medium coverage, it also claims the same. Being said that, you can definitely build it up without looking like a ghost. The foundation has absolutely no fragrance, which I love. The formula of this foundation is my favourite part which contains some beneficial ingredients for the skin.The D&G foundation is not so thick, you hardly know you have it on! And my friends it blends seamlessly into your skin. It gives kind of a dewy finish but looks so natural. It’s like your skin is glowing naturally! So beautiful finish.

Another great thing about the D&G perfect luminous liquid foundation is that it is suitable for breakout-prone skin. The foundation stayed on my skin for 9 hours with primer and without any touchups, Yay! After 9 hours I had removed it. But if I don’t use a primer underneath the foundation, then my skin turns into an oily mess just after 4-5 hours. Which means a primer is necessary and I also think this foundation would not be a great choice for oily skinned beauties, even though it claims to be for all skin types. It does not look cakey and does not accentuate any dry patches on the skin. And for Instagram-worthy pictures, this one photographs really well.

I also love how the foundation hydrates my skin. So for dry skin, this foundation will be a boon. This foundation is available in 15 shades, from the palest to the darkest, every complexion has a shade!

BUT….if you thought the Dolce & Gabbana perfect luminous liquid foundation to be perfect by all means, I have a problem. For the first few uses, the foundation came out too runny. I have shaken the bottle well, but still, this happened. From the second use onwards I have shaken the hell out, but the problem still existed. This problem was solved only after a few uses. This might be due to the oil separation.

My final verdict

In love:

  • Pump dispenser.
  • Skin looks natural yet polished.
  • Fragrance-free.
  • Subtly luminous finish for a youthful glow.
  • Long wearing.
  • Hydrates skin.
  • 15 shades available, so you get the perfect shade.

Not in love:

  • For the first few pumps the foundation comes out as a runny liquid, even after shaking.
  • Price.

Overall I really love this foundation. The price is a bit high but I am totally a fan of the dewy finish it gives to my skin. And I also love how natural it looks. I am giving the Dolce & Gabbana perfect luminous liquid foundation a 4.7/5 and I highly recommend it!

  1. I prefer a light-medium coverage myself. Not that I couldn’t benefit from full coverage lol. The foundation sounds awesome. I’ll have to see if I can get a sample or something. Glad to hear it worked out for you. 🙂

    • Thank you for stopping by Ragini! Which foundation from ester lauder are you referring to? And do try this foundation it’s really amazing?

  2. I also like light or medium coverage, and normally I wear a BB cream, in fact. But this foundation with full coverage sounds good, illuminating and without scent and hydrating, that’s excellent. The price can be high, but for a good product, why not! That’s worth it, I guess! Hope you have a very nice day!

    • I agree! The price is definitely justified by the quality of the foundation and I think it’s totally worth to splurge! And hey, I too prefer B.B. Creams? Have a great day!

    • Yes of course, if she hadn’t told me about this foundation, i might not even think of buying it and this is my favorite foundation now!

  3. Considering how well it worked for you the price is easily justified. These days even drugstore foundations are almost touching AED 90 plus. But, babes your skin is flawless and does not need even a bb cream<3 And yes, I nominated you for the one lovely blog award 🙂

    • That’s true, good foundations from drugstore brands are somewhere around 100 AED these days, but there are exceptions too. But this foundation is so good I honestly don’t mind splurging. And my skin is definitely not perfect but I still don’t mind going bare face 😀

      P.S. Thank you for the nomination Soumya!

    • Thank you for the suggestion Deepika! I actually went to get the EL double wear foundation, but I am glad I found this one! xoxo
