Giorgio Armani No. 10 Fluid Sheer
Giorgio Armani No. 10 Fluid Sheer

Giorgio Armani No. 10 Fluid Sheer ($59.00 for 1.0 fl. oz.) is a warm, medium golden bronze with a very fine shimmer–reads more as a sheen than a shimmer. Physicians Formula Light Bronzer is more pigmented, warmer. Burberry Copper Glow is darker, browner, matte. MAC Gold Deposit is darker, more shimmery. MAC Fresh Honey is less shimmery, more pigmented. MAC Blazing Haute is lighter, more orange. All of the possible dupes I came up with are blushes/bronzers, so they were all more pigmented. If your coloring is medium or deeper and you’re looking for a bronzer, you might want to consider one of the dupes, as this is designed to be sheer and is very much so. For something more similar in type of product, MAC Golden Elixir, which is more bronze, and MAC Sun Rush, which is more shimmery. See comparison swatches.

I think the finish is spectacular; it’s beautifully glowy on the skin while adding a golden warmth, and it never looked shimmery–just slightly dewy with a natural sheen. With my medium complexion, I can mix this with my foundation to use all over or even just pat this onto bare skin. The consistency is thin, so it ends up being rather sheer and spreads out easily. It also mixes readily with liquid foundation and moisturizer. It lasted well both mixed with foundation as well as patted on cheeks alone; gradual fading started just after eight hours of wear, and my foundation didn’t wear away any sooner than it normally would with this mixed in. For any warmer-toned complexion looking for a golden glow, No. 10 is worth checking out to see if it’s a good match for your skin tone.

P.S — Giorgio Armani Beauty is also having their Friends & Family sale now through the 30th, so that’s 20% off + free shipping when you spend $75.

  1. I’m really liking this! I recently got MAC’s Golden Elixir, but this seems nice too. Would love to have it as an option. :)

    Looks like a winner to me. You look radiant and gorgeous. Love the glowy finish, even for more mature skin types. Although matte finishes are often recommended for mature skin, I find it to make the skin look dry, flat, boring and sometimes cakey.

    Oh that gives such a lovely glow! Is that now going to be a staple product for you Christine?

  4. So gorgeous on you Christine! I think it might be a little dark for my complexion though. Hmm I’ll see if any of the other shades will fit my pale, warm to neutral toned skin.

    I’ve been jonesing for this product for the past several months. Your review just pushed me over the edge.

  6. I have fluid sheer in no. 2. Got it last summer and I am most likely not half way through the bottle yet. In the old bottles you can’t see how much you used but you really need very little of it. I mix it with foundation. Am thinking about buying the pale pink one after I saw the review.

    Hi Christine do this give more of a wet look to the skin? I have yet to find something that will give me that look without looking shimmery. If so which would u recommend , I’m NC 30-35.

  8. I bet these look really pretty mixed into foundation, or mixed into lotion and applied to the body. Given the price point, the fact that it can multi-task is definitely a plus. Have you tried either of these methods, Christine?

    • Hi Stephanie!

      I mentioned it in my review :) Here is the relevant portion: “It also mixes readily with liquid foundation and moisturizer. It lasted well both mixed with foundation as well as patted on cheeks alone; gradual fading started just after eight hours of wear, and my foundation didn’t wear away any sooner than it normally would with this mixed in.”

  9. Where did you buy your earrings? I really like them! :)

    I must have used 4 or 5 bottles so far, definitely a must-have for me.
