There has been unprecedented demand for this product worldwide, and we are receiving a very limited supply of stock for now. If you have missed out on the shade you’re after, don’t worry, it will be back. You can submit to be added to the wait list, so you will be notified as soon as we receive stock next year. Unfortunately we do not currently have an estimated time of arrival for future stock of this product.

 

 

The Ordinary Coverage Foundations are full-coverage formulations available in a comprehensive shade range across 21 shades. These foundations contain higher pigment levels than our Serum Foundations but still offer a smooth finish that avoids the heavy makeup look that can make skin appear more aged. The texture is that of a lightweight, non-oily cream.

 

The pigments used in these formulations are treated for a rich, highly-saturated effect. These pigments are suspended in our proprietary spreadability system that allows pigments to look natural on the skin, resist collecting within fine lines and stay on for longer. The foundations offer a semi-matte finish and are compatible with most primers and are designed to work exceptionally well with the primers offering from The Ordinary.

 

The Ordinary Coverage Foundation as sold in the European Union offer an SPF 15 claim. This protection is achieved without the use of chemical sunscreens and only through physical protection from Titanium Dioxide. Additionally, no nano-particles are used to achieve this sun protection. These attributes are unique in foundations because it is exceptionally difficult to create a natural, lightweight look and consistent shades when using only non-nano forms of Titanium Dioxide for sun protection without any chemical sunscreen agents.

 

Please note that the formulations are and will be the same in all markets but the packaging will claim SPF 15 only in the European Union while regulatory processes for claiming SPF in other markets are carried out individually.

Most Helpful Positive

Unbelievably Good
Combined with the ordinary skin routine I am doing with hyaluronic acid and greanctive, this foundation goes on smooth and flawlessly and gives exceptional coverage without making me break out. This price point is just CRAZY!

  1. Good coverage at a great price

    This foundation is lovely and breathable, it definitely doesn’t feel heavy like a lot of other foundations but still manages to give a great level of coverage. It’s not cakey and doesn’t seperate either, I’d recommend it.
  2. Unbelievably Good

  4. Oh my goodness

    So pleasantly shocked at the quality of this foundation. I decided to give it a go because of the incredibly reasonable price point, and that I'd tried some other The Ordinary products with good results. The colour is holy grail material for me, and the coverage and consistency is closest to Chanel's Sublimage (my absolute ultimate) that I've found, at a tiny fraction of the price.

    Only issue was that the pump on the bottle doesn't work, but easy enough to get this silky liquid out by using the pump as a dropper. Goes on smoothly and wears really well throughout the day. Love it.
  5. Would be great for people that don’t have problematic skin

    The foundation was not full coverage and I found it sat on top of the skin rather than blending in nicely. It had a beautiful satin finish that would be great for someone that doesn’t have anything major to cover. Also found that it did crease :/
  6. Seems good for the price, darker shade than expected

    This is probably the cheapest foundation I’ve ever bought and I was pleasantly suprised. It offers good coverage and a small amount can be spread quite thin so you don’t need a thick layer on your skin to feel covered. Unfortunately the colour I purchased is way too dark. I have a medium/tan complexion, I purchased 2.1y medium yellow, I will purchase about 3 shades lighter next time. 2.1y was the shade recommended to me by “find my colour” based on me entering the Estée Lauder foundation and shade I wear so be weary if you are relying on the recommendation it makes!
  7. Worth buying

    I really enjoy using this foundation, though I seem to have had a very different experience to most other reviewers. I find it not to be that full coverage; instead it gives a nice natural finish. I did find that it had faded after about 10-12 hours of wear, but I tend to think any foundation that lasts longer than that can't be good for your skin, so I was happy with it. My favourite part has to be how it feels on the skin - it feels like you're putting on another serum, not a foundation! Once you're done your skin feels like its been well moisturised, not like it has foundation caked onto it. The only complaint I have is that the shade I chose (using Findation and my Fenty foundation as the comparison) is about 1-2 shades too dark, but at such an affordable price I don't mind buying another shade and saving this one for summer :)
  8. Great inexpensive

    Buildable coverage, looks natural and subtle, doesn't cause any breakouts like a change of foundation normally would, atleast 5 bottles in now as I use it for my every day foundation.
  9. Definitely worth a try but...

    This certainly does what it claims, full coverage with a nice matte finish but this felt too thick on for me even when using a minute amount after experimenting. I also found that even with very well prepped skin and using TO’s silicone primer that it had a drying effect on my combination skin. I much prefer TO’s serum foundation. I will give it credit that it lasted and do believe it’s well worth a try as you never know and you simply cannot beat the price point for a quality product. I’m a complete TO devotee and swear by everything I’ve tried so far, this foundation just isn’t for me, perhaps once in awhile when I feel I need total coverage but not for a daily foundation.
  10. Decent, not wonderful

    Not a bad foundation, but seems to separate on the skin and settles into creases. Will persevere, but not in love yet.
  11. Worth it for the price

    I tried this foundation because I love the ordinarys skincare range to death. I heard great things about this so for $12.80 I tried my luck but unfortunately this wasn’t the product for me.

    I have quite oily skin and this applied well but didn’t sit nicely from about 1 hour onwards. It felt and looked like a layer ontop of my skin rather than a comfortable and skin like look.

    A shame but then again it was only $12.80! I recommend trying it because it seems to work for so many people - my oily skin stops me from enjoying a lot of cult products
  12. pleasantly surpirsed

    I was pleasantly surprised by this foundation, first off it's super affordable and second, there's a huge range of shades to choose from. thirdly, coverage is good too
  13. Really liked this foundation

    I was sceptical about trying this foundation, however once I had tried it I loved it. Goes on easily with a brush or blender, has good coverage and you can layer it to get more coverage if needed. Shade was easy to match as well.
    A great price as well, will be ordering this again.
  14. lovely full coverage

    I have been using this foundation for about a week. I'm very happy with it - slightly thicker coverage than my last foundation which is what I wanted, and I find that just half a pump is enough for my whole face (so it should last me well!). My skin is normal but tends towards dry and I find this foundation comfortable to wear and a really nice finish in between matte and dewy - doesn't look oily or shiny at all.
    I tried using the colour selector but I ended up choosing the shade myself as I didn't think the suggestion sounded right for me - I chose the 1.1 and it's great.
  15. Great everyday foundation

    Colour range was excellent. I found a colour that I love. Texture is smooth and applies well. I do prefer the lighter serum formula purely for the more natural finish
  16. So good.

    I'm not a fan of full coverage foundation, however I've wanted one in my collection just in case I need it and this is honestly amazing for the price. It truly is full coverage and it's pathetic how affordable it is. I love using this as concealer sometimes (I purchased a shade too light for me) and you can always mix in different shades to get your perfect match!! I only apply a small amount for a natural look and I never need to powder when I wear this. Highly recommend for those wanting to try out full coverage foundation without breaking the bank and regretting the purchase if you don't like it.
  17. High End Quality - Drugstore Price

    At first I was skeptical at how good a $12.95 Foundation could possibly be, but my mind has been blown!
    A little goes a long way with the Ordinary, and I can honestly say I'm here to stay!
    The coverage is second to none and blends really well and is buildable!
    My new go-to foundation
  18. Great foundation!!

    So in love with this foundation. Great quality and so affordable !! will definitely return for more
  19. Absolutely LOVE this product - flawless coverage

    Combined with the ordinary skin routine I am doing with hyaluronic acid and greanctive, this foundation goes on smooth and flawlessly and gives exceptional coverage without making me break out. Love it!
  20. Light and Good for your skin

    I bought this in the light tone, I have pale and combination skin with an oily T zone. This foundation is super light with a medium coverage and has a texture similar to a serum and liquid foundation mixed together.

    The foundation soaks into the skin and is a very natural look, not a paint on at all. Having minerals and other benefits in this foundation gives me peace of mind that I am not harming my skin and no harmful or effects have come from accidentally falling asleep with the foundation still on.
  21. Amazing for pale skin

    Such an amazing product especially for the price! I work in hot environments and my skin is usually sweaty and gross but my foundation stays on all day. It has great coverage and works really well on my skin (normal/oily t-zone) as well as being amazing purely out of how light the shades go! I have a never ending struggle of all foundations being too dark but no more!!
  22. Full Coverage, cult status like Estee Lauder's Double Wear

    I am in LOVE! This foundation has FULL coverage for my very dry and dehydrated skin, in that only one pump goes a very long way. When I used two pumps I achieved an extreme full coverage. The product itself feels extremely light weight and allows skin to breathe, whilst being extremely highly pigmented and hydrating. It does crack or settle or dry in areas around the nose, mouth and eye area.
    I got the shade matched to Estee Lauder's Double wear, and the color match was perfect!
    The Ordinary Coverage Foundation shade I bought is 1.1 N, it is quite light initially when you wear it, however I have very pale almond olive skin, and after the product is applied for 15 minutes, it begins to oxidize, the color is perfect and adapts to my natural skin tone.
    It covers like Double Wear, without the heavy feeling, and caked on feeling.
    This is all for a fraction of the price of other brands. I recommend this foundation over The Ordinary Serum Foundation.
    New cult favourite and makeup bag staple!
  23. Great Price & Feels Good On Skin

    I have combination type skin and am prone to oily skin on my T-zone.
    I live in QLD so I like my foundation to stay matte and not too dewy.
    I really like this foundation and it feels lightweight on my skin however I found it does not last as well in the heat. However, I wore this foundation for a week whilst in Victoria and it worked perfectly.
    I still really like this foundation to wear but I would opt for something else that lasts longer for a special occasion.
  24. Great, well priced foundation

    I have very sensitive skin but like a medium amount of coverage and this is fantastic! It is a full coverage foundation - the pigment is amazing - but I apply it with a damp beauty blender to sheer it out and it works great. A little definitely goes a long way, One pump does my whole face, with a little left over to touch up spots and redness. I’ve also mixed this with their Marula oil when my skin has been very dry/eczema prone and it blended beautifully! Will definitely be buying again!
  25. Incredible value but also incredible formula

    I am so surprised this product is not spoken about more. The quality of the matte foundation is insane it is so good - lasts all day and so affordable! Always buy in bulk.
  26. My go to foundation

    I was very happy to find this foundation as I'd been spending way too much money on foundation for years. This is such a high-quality foundation for its price. The only issue I have with it is that it is quite moist to touch (leaving a dewy finish), I set mine with powder always. Definitely worth a try.
  27. Great lighter everyday option

    I have dry skin and find I definitely have to wear a primer under this which I do with all foundations. I quite like the coverage this gives. A bit goes a long way and it can be built up in problem areas. I use this as a lighter version to my Clinique Beyond perfecting foundation and find it stays on just as long as that does. I never use finishing powders due to older dry skin but still found it stayed on quite fine.
  28. Can’t go wrong with this one!

    This foundation is firstly, unbelievably priced. If it wasn’t for all the amazing reviews most people would dismiss it. How could something so cheap be so good and good for your skin? This isn’t my HG foundation but I happily wear it as a cost effective option. The colour can be a little yellow/golden but it wears well and doesn’t oxidise and provides full and luminous coverage. Worth having a bottle on rotation in your beauty cabinet!
  29. Amazing for the cost

    This foundation is amazing for the price. The shade matched my skin really well. I use a foundation brush to apply it and it goes on my face like a dream. It has great coverage. I can't get over how fantastic it is for such a low price.
  30. A bit too oily/dewy

    Heard lots of good things about The Ordinary foundation so thought I would give it a shot, especially considering the price. The coverage and initial finish is great, it does oxidise slightly. However, within a few minutes I felt very shiny, even on my cheeks where my skin is usually dry. It could probably be controlled with powder but even so, it felt oily and was a bit too "dewy" for me.
  31. Superb product and incredible value!

    Not only great value but an exceptional foundation. The Ordinary have provided two types of tone for pinks and yellow skin tones. I use the neutral/ pink. I have mature skin ( approaching 50) and this foundation is as good if not better than other foundations I have with high, high price tags. I blend it with sunscreen or a little base maoisturiser to increase sheerness (I’ve also reviewed serum foundation in same colour). Coverage is excellent, blend perfectly with beauty blender, is buildable with no clumping or dry patches. Blending concealer of another brand and finishing powders produces a flawless, dewy and a gorgeous colour/ tone match that compliments my skin (fair olive with pink tones). Lasts all day in hot or cold weather - excellent!!!
  32. Finally found the right shade for my skin

    After finally finding the right shade for my skin (i tried 3 different ones and finally settled on a combo of two), I am now hooked. I had been using NARS sheer glow foundation for years and I find this foundation is exactly the same and priced under $15 rather than over $70.
    Note; I find that it needs to be sealed with powder or it is too sticky
  33. Good Coverage

    I have only been using this foundation a short time but so far, so good. It goes on well and the colour matching system was pretty spot on. It doesn't seem to dry out my skin and It stays on longer than my usual foundation too. All going well I would buy this again.
  34. UH-MA-ZING

    I read the hype about this product on Adore Beauty and was intrigued. How could such a cheap product be so popular? Well... it is incredible! I used to spend $50 on foundation but I won’t be from now on! This foundation blends easily, provides a full coverage without looking cakey and doesn’t need layer upon layer for the desired effect. The range of shades is huge, meaning you will be able to find the right shade for your specific skin tone. I’m so glad I tried this foundation and I won’t be going back to the more expensive brands!!
  35. Not great even if its cheap

    It makes my face look dry in certain areas that arent even dry (inner corners and eyelids) and makes my face look grey at the end of the day. I like the watery consistency but thats about it.
  36. Amazing Coverage & Feels Fantastic on Skin

    In love with this foundation already.
    Only ordered it last week due to all the rave reviews I read on it & have used it twice this week and couldn't say more positive things about it.
    My skin type is hard to describe - oily/combination, sensitive/blotchy, acne & rosacea prone. This foundation gives me amazing coverage without any need for concealer!
    Balanced my oils out beautifully, feels lightweight on the skin whilst giving skin a dewy/matte looking finish. Doesn't irritate my skin or cause any breakouts.
    I have seen some reviews saying it doesn't last long on them, this was not the case for me. It is lasting on my face from morning to night. I cleanse my face, use my zinc/niacinamide serum, then a spray primer then apply my foundation, set with my MAC Studio Fix Powder & then set with setting spray once all the rest of my makeup is done & it doesn't budge all day. I am quite olive/tanned & the colour that findation chose for me - 2.0N - (Light Medium Neutral) is absolutely perfect!! Matches my neck & deccolatage perfectly.I have used ALOT of high end foundations from Clinique to Estee Lauder to Lancome to Napoleon Perdis to MAC & whilst they have all been great the price point is not practical for me anymore. This is most certainly a winner for me!!
  37. Radiant and flawless

    I love this product. My skin is light to medium toned with dry areas around eyes and chin. I purchased 2.0 YG light) medium and have found this a great match for my tone. The product glides on effortlessly and provides flawless coverage . It can be easily built up without any tackiness or loss of original application. I am particularly liking this as having a more mature skin at 47 I need a matte but dewy look . The product feels nourishing and I have had no adverse reactions or adjustment issues with my skin. I needed a product that would cover and hydrate and I feel this is a great solution. The easy to use pump bottle is probably the best I've used , just a little pump seems to deliver the right amount for me. I apply my make up at 530 am and it's still going strong at 4 pm. I've had no issues with it transferring onto clothes etc and generally all round it's a winner for me .The price is unbelievably great and I just can't get enough of this brand.
  38. very nice

    i love this product so much, super buildable and easy to apply
  39. Great foundation

    Fantastic foundation. A little bit goes a long way and so long lasting.
  40. Holy grail

    I was so excited to see Adore were stocking this and couldn’t wait to try. 1.0N is the perfect shade. The coverage is amazing and doesn’t go patchy. By the end of the day it is usually almost gone (thanks kids and their hands!) but it’s like it fades across my whole face, sort of just becoming a lighter coverage. I won’t ever buy another foundation again
  41. The ordinary Coverage Foundaton

    This foundation is amazing for everyday coverage. I struggle with certain products and acne, but i have not had an issue with The ordinary. The formula is smooth and light wearing, I LOVE IT. And highly recommend.
  42. Great for the price!

    This is definitely a great coverage foundation, the price is unbeatable and it wears great throughout the day, the only negative I have is that it’s a little bit too heavy for me but that’s more personal preference.
  43. It's a yes from me

    YES!

    It took me a couple of attempts, but I believe I have found the perfect 'The Ordinary' shade for me. My first purchase was based on the foundation picker, not my gut. Unfortunately, the foundation picker was WAY off. I tried to match a BB cream I'd previously used (Medium) but the match was far too yellow and dark for me.

    On the second occasion, I trusted my gut and found the 2.0N Light Medium - Neutral to be the best match for me (although I do mix in the darker shade now that it's summer...) I'd recommend that you work out what your base colour is before purchasing (ie pink / neutral / yellow). Having said that, the price is ridiculously reasonable, so it's hardly an expensive exercise :)

    The coverage is quite superb. It blends really easily and lasts well into the day - even after a heavy gym class. It's almost the perfect blend of matte and dewy, which means the finish is not overly heavy. This is a bonus for those with dry skin / fine lines.

    A fabulous product.
  44. Good Coverage

    I love a good full coverage foundation and would definitely recommend The Ordinary! Its buildable and doesnt look cakey on my face.
  45. can't go wrong

    I bought this foundation because I was looking to move away from fuller coverage foundations for summer and grow my confidence without such a heavy base. This was perfect! The coverage is thin but matte and buildable, so it gives a beautiful coloured tint to my face but it really doesn't feel like I'm wearing anything which I love for work and casual days. This is great for when I fake tan because I can colour match the tan without necessarily looking like I'm wearing heaps of makeup (I don't tan my face). If I apply a small amount, I can let my freckles show through, or I can build it up until it's full coverage. I would say MAC StudioFix has fuller coverage, but for a much more affordable price I'd rather buy this foundation and build it up myself! I got the colour 2.0N for when I'm tanned and I love the colour. I also bought 1.0N to see if it'd match me when I'm pale but I'm yet to try. I feel better putting this foundation on my skin for everyday use rather than those in pharmacies or higher end brands that cost at least five times the price.
  46. good coverage, powdery finish

    This goes on really well and has pretty good coverage - I have combination skin with rosacea so its good to be able to just cover it all up. After application though it does dry quite powdery and rubs off easily - lasts long as long as you don't rub your face on anything!
  47. Great product!

    I love this foundation.

    I have used so many and this for me is just as good as some of the most expensive ones.

    It is so light and is OK with my sensitive skin.

    I also found the color matching online was perfect.

    Happy with the product and extremely happy with the price!
  48. Hard to pick your colour

    I found it hard to chose a colour based on the online colour chart. The one I got was way too dark! I’ve just been mixing it with my old foundation. Texture is nice. I like the amount of coverage when applied with hands which is light and natural. I have oily/dehydrated skin. I haven’t noticed any flaking or shinyness throughout the day.
  49. Good for the price

    I bought this in hopes to potentially find a more affordable replacement for my Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation. The colour match was perfect, but unfortunately, even though it was such a bargain, this didn't last or blend anywhere near as long/well as my Estee Lauder one. I'd recommend it to someone who needs a quick fix foundation for a couple of hours, but for the long haul, you'd be better off spending more on a longer-lasting and better-coverage foundation.
  50. medium pink shade

    i am not happy with this foundation. i tried to like it as i love all the other products from the ordinary but this was unfortunately a miss for me. it did not give me as much coverage as i hoped it would.
  51. Too dark

    I bought 1.0p and is still too dark but I love how it feels and how easily it goes on and stays
  52. Good foundation but not full coverage

    I have oily skin, large pores and uneven skin tone. This foundation is very good and has good coverage but is not full coverage in my opinion. It does not minimise pores. The colour and texture are good and it applies easily and well with fingertip application. I will purchase again as this colour is a really good much for my summer skin (mild beige with yellow undertones). I do love this brand. I'd love to see a pore minimising foundation from them.
  53. Works just like my high end

    Before i bought this I was religious with buying mac studio fix fluid, this is a perfect dupe, the colour is perfect it is a little bit thin but is buildable, plus it is a fifth of the price. I have just purchased again but in another shade to match my fake tan and will continue to repurchase in both my summer and winter shade. I wish they made a pressed powder.
  54. Good for the price

    This is a great foundation for everyday wear if you're just looking for something thats a little bit better than a BB cream. It does apply quite thin but for the price I don't mind doing a few layers (I'm quite dry on the nose). On its own I find it cracks a bit over the nose, but works really well with the ordinary primers.
  55. Good price but...

    Excellent price for a decent foundation. Unfortunately i wont be buying again as it did nothing to combat my oily face. I was shiny after just 1 hours wear. I even tried it with constant powder touch ups throughout the day but it was a bit of a mess.
    If you have dry skin this would be great for you. Good price and pretty good coverage.
  56. Great foundation

    This is a great everyday foundation, super easy to apply and you only need the smallest amount of product to get a good amount of coverage. It is also quite a thin formulation so is easily blendable.
  57. Alright for the price

    I bought this and the serum version. I much prefer the serum over this one. I found the formula quite runny but it does dry down very quickly and very matte - it caked around my nose and mouth almost upon application. I purchased the recommended shade according to 'find my shade' and found it too light upon application. I did not find the same issue with the serum version (the colour was fine there). I have fair skin with yellow undertones and purchased the 1.2YG shade in both coverage and serum formula. I found the foundation did darken slightly during the day but did not darken enough to match my skin. I would not repurchase this but would do so for the serum version. I would recommend the serum one for those with t zone oily combination skin as I found that did not make me any oilier than I normally am. I found this foundation wore off and broke around the 5 hour mark. Overall, it's an okay product for its price. If you're not worried about spending $12 on a foundation then give this go as it may work better for you than me.
  58. Colour match

    I’ve been looking for a slightly less mattifying alternative to MAC studio fix fluid. Have been wearing NC15 for over 5 years but noticed my skin become drier with age. The colour matching of this foundation is incredible! 1.1 fair neutral is nearly spot on, just a tad lighter but an even better match for me. The texture is light and easy to apply. Love that it’s a cruelty free alternative and so much more affordable than $54 for MAC. Will definitely be repurchasing.
  59. Not for me

    This isnt a bad foundation, it just isnt for me. I tried it because i love the brand and have really enjoyed all the ordinary products i have used thus far - however this foundation just give me the look i was hoping for. the coverage was good and it had reasonable lasting power - it just didnt sit on my skin the way i like.
  60. The foundation I have been searching for

    I have combination sensitive skin with large pores and signs of ageing (blessed, I know!). I have tried SO many different foundations over the last few years and this one by far has the best coverage, lasts really well, feels good on-not too heavy, and is also the best value for money. I use many The Ordinary products and have never been disappointed.
  61. Great coverage!

    I was super impressed by how amazing the coverage is! And a little bit really does go a long way. It blends nicely and stays on all day. Will definitely buy again!
  62. Great product

    I love this foundation! The coverage the size the price it can’t be beat. I also love to mix it with my other more expensive foundations when they aren’t the right shade, and this mixes in so good. I love it
  63. Epic foundation considering the price $$$

    I’m almost in disbelief at how good this foundation is and the pricing! Excellent coverage without the need to cake it on for coverage! Buildable and also has a lovely nature skin look.
  64. The Ordinary Coverage Foundation

    This foundation is amazing. A little really goes a long way, very light, and has great coverage. Use with their primer for a longer lasting look.
  65. Great

    It did take 2 attempts to get the perfect shade match, for someone that suffers with breakouts this product gives good coverage and feels breathable on my skin, a little goes along way too
  66. Great foundation at amazing price!

    I have very fair, sensitive combination skin. I didn't expect to like this as I'm not a huge fan of liquid moisturisers, generally find them too heavy, but this feels really nice on, covers well and is long lasting! Amazing for the price. It might even come to replace my expensive MAC studio fix powder that I've been using for years.
  67. Comparable to high end foundation

    This is a fabulous foundation with high coverage. Easy to blend with a great shade range. This is comparable to the Too Faced Born This Way foundation in my opinion. It lasts a decent amount of time and doesnt really break up like most foundations do over the course of the day. Very impressed
  68. Unsure about the coverage

    I have tried this after using the serum foundation for a long time and was hoping for more coverage however I don't think this offers much more coverage and appears to sit a bit more cakey on the skin. I think it may be a bit drier as well.
    The serum foundation is great and I don't think this offers much more coverage at all!
  69. Ok

    pretty good for the pricing
  70. Great value for money

    For the price this foundation is awesome i wouldnt wear it for a whole day but it is awesome for a couple of hours if you need to go out and need some foundation to cover blemishes and redness!
  71. Good, but not great.

    I love the Ordinary but I wouldn't purchase this again. I've got sensitive skin, and this did cover up my redness and blemishes. but comes off within a few hours leaving my face looking uneven. If you are someone who touches your face a lot this comes off instantly and leaves foundation everywhere. Nice colours and good range, just not very effective for a whole day at work unfortunately.
  72. Near Perfect! My New Daily Foundation

    Love this product! The colour matching is perfect, I got the perfect match. I get great coverage with this product, and a little goes a long way, which makes the price even better. I wouldnt recomend for oily skin as it does slip a bit on its own, I do need to touch up my nose and around my eyes while I'm at work, but many foundations do the same in the Queensland heat. This foundation will be perfect over the winter and leaves me glowing and lovely during the summer too. Would love to see a concealer from The Ordinary!
  73. Not good for dry skin

    I found this heavy and cakey on my dry combo skin. It didn’t melt in well with either a brush or sponge, and always looks like it is sitting on top of my skin.
    Shade range is good although most pull yellow. 1.2N is good for NC15 in my experience.
  74. Lovely texture, but I fear they've changed formula

    I love this foundation and go through it very quickly as it is perfect with my dry skin, and offered a perfect colour for me in the lightest shade. However, I have now noticed that the colour as gotten pinker (match with a previous bottle that I purchased over six months previous and this is definitely the case). I brought two of the same at the same time, and I hoped it was just a bad batch, but I fear that they have changed formulas, and therefore colours. The texture and lovely light consistency I cannot fault.
  75. Great coverage

    This is a great every day wear foundation. As it summer I purchased the Light Medium Neutral colour. It helps cover pigmentation and redness. I wear this one to work and on weekends, however feel I would need a more heavy duty foundation for 9-5 work days. This however is fantastic value for money, There are so many shades to choose from I will be getting a lighter colour for winter months.
  76. Awesome

    good shade variety and excellent formula. can oxidize a little bit tho
  77. Nice

    This is a nice foundation, it is an excellent price. I wound prefer a lighter shade for I am one shade darker then snow. All up I would recommend this to other to try for themselves.
  78. Nice

    Really easy to blend and covers well
  79. Okay

    For the price these foundations are good, especially used over the silicon primer, but tricky to get the colour correct. I had to buy a few to get it right.
  80. Good for the Price

    My skin is combination so really oily on my T-zone and dry on my cheeks. I’m still very new to buying types of foundations for myself as I’ve literally been living off samples. I decided to give this one a go since I was curious to see how good such an affordable foundation would be. I really wished I got 1 shade darker however I still really enjoyed the formula with and without their primer. It made my skin still feel like it could breathe, it was very unnoticeable by friends and family that I was wearing foundation and it made my skin looked naturally airbrushed. It doesn’t cover all my dark spots left from my pimples on my cheek area but it does do a great job at making my skin look much more smooth.
  81. Amazed!!

    Cannot believe how good this product is for this price. I have been spending so much more then this & havnt been as happy. Light weight but covers so well, blends in amazing, no cake look when going a bit thicker for night.
    My new foundation for sure.
  82. Great

    I have very oily, light skin. The coverage is good and it blends reasonably easily. It wears pretty well. My winter shade is 1.1N, it doesn't oxidise on me (most foundations do). It isn't a matte finish, but it looks nice and natural. Worth a try at this price, I prefer it to some $50 foundations I have tried.
  83. Good product for that price

    While my dry skin didn’t really love this foundation I did love the huge range of colours, I actually found one that matched my fair neautral skin tone which I NEVER do, I liked the coverage, probably medium to full and for the price I’d recommend if you have normal or oily combo skin.
  84. Full coverage

    Love the consistency, full coverage but not too thick. I probably could have gone a shade lighter but that was on me for not checking real life swatches online! great for yellow and olive undertones!
  85. My go to, even after trying many expensive ones

    I have a draw full of expensive foundations, but I always come back to The Ordinary. I have scarred skin from acne and need a full coverage, and this does the trick. I have very dry skin which is well hydrated with various creams/serums, but even then a lot of full coverage foundations will cling to any tiny dry spot and make it a lot worse, or even worse they make me break out. This one doesnt, it goes on very nicely and lasts quite well throughout the day (office job). I have tried almost every full coverage foundation at popular makeup stores, but this is the one I will keep buying.
  86. I bought 2 extra bottles for stocking as I use it for every day wear

    I use it every day for work - holds up well with medium coverage and dewy finish. Can't complain about the price of it as well.
  87. Very oily foundation

    I love The Ordinary products but I found this foundation to be awful. It's very oily, and on oily skin, it literally just slides away (even with a good primer). I really wanted this to work & tried so many different combinations, but in the end, I threw it away because it wasn't salvageable. It might be ok if you have very dry skin. The only positive thing was the colour range; the colour I picked was a perfect match to my skin.
  88. Good but not great

    I have oily skin so for any foundation i use i cover it in a powder. This foundation on its own doesn't provide a smooth coverage, but coupled with my Estee Lauder double wear powder it does the job for a work day. For the price its a good everyday foundation if you don't need it to last into the night. If I have something on in the evenings I will wear my better coverage foundations. I am re-purchasing, mostly because the colour is a good match to my skin and the price is good and it lasts ages. Just don't expect it to last if you have oily skin or exercise during the day.
  89. Good but broke me out

    This product is a lovely match for my skin tone and reminds me a lot of the Nars sheer glow in the way it looks on my skin (matte but glowy). Coverage is also impressive for such a liquidy product. Unfortunately, I can't use it because it gives me big pimples. I also found it didn't wear very well throughout the day.
  90. Buildable

    A good buildable daytime foundation with light SPF
  91. A Must have in all make up bags!

    I was recommended this to me by a colleague, I was initially skeptical given the price. I previously used Nars or Stilla for my everyday use at work costing me lots!

    This foundation is easily one of the best, the coverage is amazing and lasts all day (with a setting spray of course!). I have combination skin and when its "that time of the month" I break out. This foundation wasn't too heavy for my time of break outs and can be made matte with a good powder or that dewy look with setting spray. Defiantly a must have in your make up bag :)
  92. Great product!

    This is a lovely product and gives a good coverage. Using the primer makes it even better. Once I figured out my shade, I was hooked. I will definitely keep using.
  93. Affordable gem

    I was pleasantly surprised by this foundation! I love so many of TO skincare products, but a foundation at this price point I was intrigued but skeptical. I have normal to dry skin and have a bit of redness in my cheeks. This covers it beautifully without being thick and cakey. It is buildable too so you can add a little extra coverage to the areas that may need it. It lasts all day too and hasn't caused any skin irritation or break outs. I actually get the best results when I mix this with the serum foundation. It gives a really beautiful, healthy glow. Even buying both foundations is crazy cheap compared to other brands! Both cream and powder products layer well on top. I highly recommend for an every day foundation!
  94. Not a lasting foundation

    Im 42, with dry/combination skin. This products applies like a dream. Dewy/Satin finish that gives a lovely glow. But result unfortunately, doesn't last.
    On the dry areas it was very cakey, and showed every wrinkle under my eye. If it stayed the way it applied it would be perfect! But, alas, no such luck.
    Good range of colours, and probably great for younger, normal skinned, but not for anyone rockin a few smile lines here n there or larger pores on nose. I hope they can improve as the colour was perfect as well as initial application-it just didn't last.
  95. Good coverage

    A little of this product goes a long way and is buildable. Colour match and price mean it’s a regular purchase for me. Even better with primer underneath.
  96. Bit too much for my skin

    I found this one to be quite thick on my skin even when using a tiny bit. My personal opinion is that the serum is nice.
    In saying that, if I found the right colour match and depending what coverage you were after, this is definitely a good buy!
    The value for money with The Ordinary products is awesome and you can't fault their products. This one just wasn't for my skin.
  97. Good value for money

    Skin type: moderately oily with freckles and ache scaring.
    Found a little of this product goes a long way. Great coverage and evened out my skin tone a lot. Found it wasn’t too heavy on the skin.
  98. New fav foundation!

    I love this product. It provides good coverage and is a good base if you want to build on it. The colour suits my skin tone well and is smooth when applied. It isn't thick or oily and blends very easily. I was pleasantly surprised and prefer this product over more expensive foundations I've used in the past.
  99. value

    This foundation is great! I have just ordered this for the second time in a darker shade as my tanning foundation had just run out and I loved the ordinary coverage foundation in my shade so much! It's a good weight and doesn't feel heavy on the skin, it hasn't caused me to break out anymore than I usually do and I'm really sensitive to stuff like that, the only downside is that it can be hard to know what your shade is and it's always sold out! But that's what the find my shade is for I guess!
    Love this foundation, will definitely be repurchasing.
  100. Overrated?

    Probably not the beat I’ve used. Didn’t live up to the reviews given. But was worth a try.
