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.

  1. 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
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Good Coverage

    I love a good full coverage foundation and would definitely recommend The Ordinary! Its buildable and doesnt look cakey on my face.
  6. 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.
  7. 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!
  8. 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!
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. 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.
