Yes, glow! To give Giorgio Armani Maestro Glow it’s full name, Maestro Glow Nourishing Fusion Makeup Bi-Phase Elixir SPF30 (don’t even try this after wine), lets you know exactly what it’s all about. This is exactly the texture of foundation I love – ridiculously light on the skin but giving such good coverage that it’s as close to second skin as you can get. And how SPF30 is built into this texture is anyone’s guess – it’s certainly a next-gen indicator of the future of sunscreen, that’s for sure.
There are a number of technologies going on in Giorgio Armani Maestro Glow – although we’ve seen this water-feel texture before, I haven’t seen it with the glow element added. And yes, you will get glow. The bi-phase element is interesting – oils that feel super smooth on the skin but not at all greasy or oily followed by ‘luminous’ oils (no idea), and finishing on apricot, passiflora and rice bran oil. And none of it feels oily on the skin. In fact, Armani make the claim that the formula will help to absorb excess oils. Pigment comes in the form of ultra fine milling them with synthetic mica.
The difference between Giorgio Armani Maestro Glow and Maestro Fusion is the finish – Fusion is velvet, Glow is, er, glow. There are 9 shades, launching in February for £40 – I’m fast-forwarding in my head to the first signs of spring and knowing that this is exactly what I’ll be feeling for by then.
