lovely dewy finish and not cakey

Monika

I have very dry skin and this doesn't leave a dry, cakey look even though it is full coverage. It still leaves a lovely dewy, natural look all day. Such amazing value! I like this equally as much as my double wear foundation.

Light everyday foundation, bit oily for me

Lan

I found this foundation really thin which I liked and provides pretty good coverage, almost like a really thin (slightly runny) tinted moisturizer.
However, for me it was a bit greasy. I found a little while after applying, I had a sheen across my t-zone.
I don't normally wear liquid foundation on a daily basis, I use a loose mineral powder and wanted to try a liquid foundation that wouldn't feel thick.
I like the texture of this, I didn't feel like I was wearing foundation, but I didn't feel like it sat well and was concerned it would easily rub off.
I haven't continued to use it and won't be re-purchasing but mainly because I'm not a fan of liquid foundation for daily wear in general.
For the price, it was worth a shot!

  3. Great coverage for a great price

    Erin

    Can’t fault this foundation given the reasonable price tag! Coverage is medium I’d say, stays well with a primer underneath. Colour range is good for fairer complexions, I always find it difficult to find foundation in a fair enough shade with pink undertones without being too pale. On to my second bottle already, plus the price point means you can purchase more than one shade I.e. a winter and summer shade. Definitely become a staple in my makeup bag!
  4. Good Base

    shana

    For this price you can't go wrong. Great base foundation
  5. Great everyday foundation

    Meagan

    Love this! Builds to a medium coverage, sinks into the skin beautifully without ever looking Cakey. Great for everyday and I’d recommend for all skin types
  6. Great improvement

    Meagan

    I used as instructed and I must say I have seen an improvement for wrinkles,depuffing and dark circles
  7. For the price point, reasonable coverage for scarred skin.

    Jo

    For reference, my HG foundation is the Mac Studio Fix - I was looking a cheaper, slightly 'lighter' option (but still full coverage as I have a fair bit of scarring from acne). I found this works best when applied and buffed in with a brush. I do set this powder after, as I have very oily skin, but I do think it wears well, and doesn't oxidise. There is transfer as the day goes on, but again, given the price, I think it's still a good foundation if you need coverage.
  8. Great product

    CAtherine

    This is a really nice foundation it’s light and feels lovely on skin looks natural yet has great coverage
    Excellent value and product
  9. Buy this if you know what’s good for you

    Molly

    $12.90!?! Are you kidding me!?!

    I usually buy Mac foundation but am currently trying to save money.

    Not only is 1.2P a perfect match to mac NW20, I use so much less of it!!

    The product is great and I believe you should all stock up because it’s selling fast!
  10. Mum loves it

    Ashleigh

    Originally bought for myself but the shade I bought was a tad dark so gave it to my mum. She loves it! She has been usint it now for over a year and buys multiple at a time. She said it doesn’t go cakey and really easy to blend. Her skin is quite red and dry
  11. Loveee

    Amanda

    This is such a great every day foundation! It's not too heavy but provides great coverage. The only negative is that it has to be set really well because it does not have great longevity, especially on oily skin. Highly recommend this foundation for day to day wear though!!
  12. Good, but not great for dry skin

    noha

    The foundation is light and a little can go a long way. I use a sponge to apply the foundation as I the finish better. The foundation is matte through and it tends to look a little dry and cakey on some areas of my face. I feel like it would be pretty ok in summer but not a good pruduct to use during the dry winter months (for people with dry skin). The coverage is good, not amazing but it does cover my redness and some acne scarring.
  13. Perfect dupe for glossier skin tint

    Jessica

    This is such a good dupe for the glossier skin tint, it makes my skin look even and fresh. It is super light and my skin is pretty sensitive to foundation and this one doesn’t make me break out. Would recommend using a primer with it so it lasts longer
  14. All day glow

    Renae

    This is a great medium to full coverage foundation. It sits nicely on the skin and doesn't feel thick or suffocating like some full coverage foundations. It does a great job of evening out the skin and minimising any pigmentation you want to hide, while still allowing for that not wearing any foundation, foundation look.
  15. not good very patchy

    Gabrielle

    Not good. Too hard to blend for me no matter what base I use underneath by the time I get in the car and look in the mirror it's so blotchy, has dry patches just looks terrible. Makes my skin look like its peeling. Colour wise its a tad warmer than the same shade in the serum. Would 100% recommend the serum version of this though.
  16. Not What I Was Expecting

    Samantha

    This foundation didn't sit well on my dry skin and built up in areas. I tried applying with a beauty blender, fingers and with a brush but I think this just doesn't suit my skin type. This isn't down to the foundation - I'm sure it works well on other skin types. Silly me also incorrectly colour matched online so thats my own fault
  17. Fantastic every day foundation

    Krystal

    I have very oily skin and this foundation sits well on my skin. A perfect, cheap everyday foundation with loads of shades to choose from. I do use a loose powder over the top to help set it - but often have compliments on my make up!
  18. Best money I ever spent!

    JW1509

    I used to spend $50+ on foundations. I thought I would give The Ordinary a try based on reviews, and at such a cheap price I figured I had nothing to lose. I haven’t looked back! This foundation offers the same, if not better, coverage than MAC or NARS foundations. The shade I ordered is a perfect match to my skin tone. The only issue is that it is often out of stock (due to popularity!)
  19. Brilliant coverage

    gayathri

    I usually use the MAC foundations for my brown skin but managed to find my skin tone in The Ordinary Coverage Foundation. It goes on easy after concealer, gives good coverage and doesn't cake as much as many of the other cheaper foundations around. Definitely worth it for the price.
  20. Hit and miss

    Sepi

    I love The Ordinary products and I had very high hopes for this foundation but I just found that it didn't last long at all.
    It has moderate to light coverage which meant using it alone didn't cover any of my acne scars. The only time I see myself using it is If I have clear skin without any pimples to get a bit of coverage.
  21. Beautiful texture

    Kylie

    It’s always a risk buying foundation online & I didn’t quite get my colour right unfortunately. Waiting for another shade to become available so I can mix them because I absolutely love the texture & coverage of this foundation. Not cakey or blotchy & feels just like a light moisturiser on my skin
  22. Love!!

    C

    Really like this foundation! Nice buildable coverage and sinks nicely into the skin
  23. Needs restocking!

    Sha

    Lovely everyday foundation that doesn't crease/ crack and fades gracefully. Unfortunately, my shade is almost never in stock on this site.
  24. Great coverage

    Bianca

    Great coverage similar to my mac for a fraction of the cost! Only issue is my colour match was a little off but happy to use it at night for a little darker coverage.
  25. Colour was perfect, but...

    blackrice

    I love using Nars sheer glow, Revlon Color Stay foundation, MAC studio fix, etc - that provide medium-full coverage with long-lasting power. This foundation creases into fine lines crazily. I can see the cakey pigments on my skin and it does not look pretty close-up. When standing from a distance, it looks great because the colour matched me perfectly (N1.1). I would rather spend a couple of bucks more to get a decent foundation though.
  26. Great coverage!

    Bianca

    Awesome colour match and quality, it’s just as good as the foundation I usually buy but it’s 1/4 of the cost! Will definitely buy this all the time
  27. dewy foundation

    T

    Nice dewy foundation, I found the foundation can look patchy in some places, the shade i ordered is slightly too dark for my skin tho so that might be why
  28. Surprisingly Good

    Jessica

    I purchased this based mainly on pricing and I have been pleasantly surprised!
    It's quite light on the skin and easy to apply, and doesn't oxidise which is something I have a lot of problems with. However it does not last all day but I feel it still gives me enough coverage to be acceptable for every day wear. For the price, I can't complain!
  29. Great

    michelle

    Doesn’t dry skin out and doesn’t soak into all my lines and creases when set with a good powder. Great price and high coverage
  30. Coverage

    Sarah

    This is a high coverage foundation that looks great on my skin and lasts well for 6-8 hrs.
  31. Gorgeous

    Kylie

    So easy to apply, gorgeous colour. My skin feels so soft wearing this & it survives a sweaty gym session. Amazing price.
  32. Lovely

    jj

    this is the perfect foundation and really easy to put on my face with the dropper
  33. did not like at all

    sis

    my skin did not like this foundation at all. i find the colours off. didnt last long at all and broke up on my skin in 2 hours. also broke out from this
  34. Cheap

    Meg

    Great price point, i purchased a few colours to get my perfect shade
  35. Value for money

    ashliegh

    Good little day to day foundation that is quite light and doesn't dry your skin out.
  36. Like it

    Isobel

    A pretty good coverage foundation. Leaves skin super smooth and buffered looking,
  37. Not kidding about the coverage

    SS15

    Really full coverage, and slightly too much for me straight. I usually cut it with my moisturiser and it’s PERFECT, has a radiant and natural finish, and I love it!! BUT by itself, it can tend to look cakey if you’re even slightly heavier handed with foundation.
  38. One of the greatest!

    melanie

    I love The ordinary serum foundation range. I am a make up artist and I find this one is beautiful especially on maturing or dry skin. I mix this in with either a full cover foundation (like mac studio sculpt) for an extra coverage. it give a beautiful dewy finish and feels super hydrating on the skin. definatly use a power to set in areas where you crease. I personally use this one as well. So cheap for what is an amazing product.
  39. Cheap and natural

    christy

    This product has a good price, without any harmful ingredients. However, the coverage effect is not as much as the other foundation products.
  40. Excellent shade range and coverage for the price

    Shelby

    The price of this foundation and the varied shade range is amazing, and I was hoping to find my new holy grail! Unfortunately even the lightest shade (my best match) oxidized really badly on my skin throughout the day which is not a problem I usually have- the coverage was excellent though. The yellowy tone made me look a bit jaundiced! I also found even with well primed skin and set with powder, this foundation slid around on my face and didn't last all day. I think this may be better suited to those with darker skin tones than mine, or those with very dry skin. I have passed my bottle on to a friend who loves the product.
  41. Good

    Yo

    Can’t complain for the price!
    This is actually a really good foundation for the price. The only issue I have is that it seems to separate in oily zones after wearing all day but other than that it’s really good. Great for dry skin too, good coverage and SO CHEAP. I now use this daily for work (I usually only ever use high end foundation)
  42. Perfect coverage

    Ashley

    Loving this foundation, perfect level of coverage without being too cakey, it lasts well if primed and set properly. For the price it's hard to beat
  43. My go-to foundation - never disappoints!

    Stephanie

    This is one foundation I always come back to - it’s just too good! Lightweight but good coverage, blends beautifully & a little goes a long way. It’s amazing, especially for the price! I always find myself reaching for it over my high end products.
  44. I love this foundation

    Mia

    One of my favourite foundation. It’s very tiny bottle but a little goes a long way so you won’t need much each application anyway. I was surprised because I didn’t expect that much of coverage as it’s very cheap foundation. Very buildable and non creasy when layers. Does not break apart after hours on my oily combination skin. Just beautiful!
  45. Perfect

    Courtney

    Love this foundation - The colour matches my skin perfectly and doesn't photograph too dark or light like some other cheaper foundations do. It is perfect for everyday wear. It is easily buildable to give great coverage. Lasts a while as not much product is needed.
  46. Great foundation and so affordable. Works well with the serums

    Rani

    Absolutely love this foundation! It's buildable and doesn't dry out on my skin.
    I use a lot of The Ordinary serums and struggled to find a foundation that didn't peel off but this works well with what I use.
  47. Great coverage!Great value!

    Mumx2

    Excellent foundation great coverage but not heavy and cakey. Long wearing and doesnt clog up my pores. The price is fantastic. I wouldnt use anything else after buying it. Love it!
  48. Comfortable, clean and cheap!

    c.p.

    This product feels very comfortable on the face. I am guessing this is supposedly 'heavier' in feel in comparison to The Ordinary Serum Foundation, but it does not feel weighty on the face at all. I feel fresh-faced when I am wearing it, and it is certainly buildable for a covered look or can be used sparingly for a fresh-faced work-ready alternative. I use it with a cushion puff to lightly blend it into my skin for an everyday look, and I doubt I will be looking elsewhere for an everyday makeup base. For the price, it is definitely a go! Seeing how expensive the 'basic' chemist brands are in Australia, I think this is something that every beauty lover needs to try as it is sooo budget-friendly.
  49. Great

    Isabella

    Great coverage! A little really does go a long long way. I really like it! Worth a shot!
  50. Value for money - medium coverage

    Bee

    A great foundation for the price. It gives medium-to-full coverage, not the full coverage it is marketed as. It is highly pigmented however the texture is quite thin.
    I have a few hyperpigmentations due to post-acne marks and it needs to be covered with a thicker, more creamy textured foundation.

    It does not stay long if you do not prep your skin properly (primer, setting powder) which I don't usually do for everyday wear.

    Overall, it is an awesome foundation considering the price and what it offers. Use it for everyday wear.
  51. Best foundation at its price

    Tina

    This foundation provides incredible coverage, the smallest pump goes the longest way and feels soft and lasts all day! It's better then so many of my high end foundations
  52. Awesome

    Kate

    Great coverage previously used Estée Lauder double wear but this at 1/4 price wins hands down
  53. FANTASTIC

    @makeupbyneesha_x

    THIS IS MY FAVORITE FOUNDATION AND I CANNOT SAY THIS ENOUGH. I am a certified makeup artist/beauty influencer on Instagram, so I have tried a WIDE range of foundations and this and the coverage
    foundation hands down is the best one I have came across, and for the price range, I am stocked to the wall in this product. I love how flawless it looks on clients too. If you're interested to see how it performs, I have tones to videos and pictures on my Instagram of this product in use. @makeupbyneesha_x
  54. Amazing!

    Mary

    Amazing foundation! So easy to apply and spreads so nicely. Would definitely recommend!
  55. Good coverage

    Chloe

    This foundation is lightweight with a good medium coverage. Like other reviewers, I didn’t find it long lasting (even with TO primer and a setting spray) so wouldn’t recommend for a night out, but great for everyday wear.
  56. Cruelty Free & Cheap

    Tracey

    I bought this foundation because I’m switching to cruelty free beauty products. It’s so cheap and I love the simple packaging and matte feel of the bottle. It’s good to find cruelty free products that are well priced. As for the product itself, for the not too heavy coverage I’m after, I don’t have to use much. I like the feel of it and it has staying power. I agree with other people who have said to buy a bit lighter than you usually would, I usually buy a medium shade and I bought a light/medium shade which is a good match. I will purchase again!
  57. Love it

    Jacqui

    I thought I'd give it a bash just beccause it was so cheap and I love their skincare products. It has turned in to one of my favourite foundations. I have very dry and pale Celtic skin but was able to find a light enough match pretty easily. The liquid is very thin and watery but goes on very easily and a little goes a long way. Easy to apply with brush or beauty blender, also goes on relatively well with fingers. Much more coverage than I was expecting and has a fairly matte finish unless I wear a glowy primer under in which case it can look quite dewy. I also use it as an under eye concealer as it's one of the few products that doesn't make my skin look crepey. Would love it if TO actually made an under eye serum concealer similar to this.
  58. Great foundation

    Michelle

    I have oily skin and was really skeptical about ordering this foundation after reading a lot of negative reviews and watching YouTube videos. However I am really glad I ordered it. I would say it is definitely medium-full coverage. It lasts really well on my skin and looks good. It is comparable to MAC studio fix foundation which is my go-to foundation, however it definitely has more coverage than MAC. The price point is great for this product. However I do find the shade range limited. I usually use NC35 or NC40 in MAC. I was matched to 2.1Y using findation but it is definitely too dark. The next shade down which is in the yellow tones is similar to NC25 so way too light. There doesn't seem to be an in-between shade for me so I may need to mix two colours together to get my perfect shade. However with such a reasonable price tag it won't break the bank to do so.
  59. I mix with the serum base foundation

    Jessica

    I originally ordered this purely for the price, and after trying other products in the range. Unfortunately the shade was too light, and I didn’t really like the oily looking finish, so I took the opportunity to buy a darker shade in the serum based foundation, I am so glad I did! I mix the two together and absolutely love the coverage and finish. Together they work wonderfully, and are nice and gentle for acne prone/dry skin. I needed a cheaper foundation than my usual VERY expensive Nars or MAC, and I found it and even prefer the finish.
  60. DOES NOT LAST ALL DAY.

    SOC

    This foundation has great coverage and is so well priced!

    I find it does not last for long periods so I would never for special occasions.

    Its great for an everyday foundation and great value
  61. Easy to wear everyday foundation

    Isabel

    I’m not a big fan of most liquid foundations and have always been a moisturizer + mineral powder kind of person - but I actually really enjoy using this foundation because of how light it feels. It doesn’t dry out on my skin and I’ve never had issues with oxidisation either. The range in colours is great - I’m quite pale and was able to colour match really well online. I also gifted the same foundation to my sister who is used to heavy coverage, and she likes to use it as a lighter wear option for days where she wants less coverage. My only issue is it sometimes becomes slightly oily/shiny by the end of the day, but that’s mostly due to my combination skin and oily T zone! Great value for money though and worth a try for a light and easy to wear foundation.
  62. Full coverage, beautiful finish

    Anna

    Was skeptical but bought this because of the price and I was pleasantly surprised. I have very textured skin but still got a dewy finish. Long lasting
  63. New Favourite Foundation

    casey

    I am obsessed with the coverage and color of this foundation. All other foundations are either too peachy or orangey and the ordinary tones are SO silkly and actually nude in tone. I mix the 1.2yg and 2.0n for contouring. Such a smooth finish and never looks heavy.
  64. Love

    Sinead

    I have oily acne prone skin. This foundation has great coverage and isn't overly oily after a 12 hr day at work. Previously using inika liquid and find that the ordinary covers better and lasts longer.
  65. For the price, great

    Elizabeth

    I went for the very lightest shade, I find a little goes a long way and the coverage is really nice, did feel a little bit heavy on for me but still a lovely product.
  66. My Fav Foundation

    Amy

    Love this foundation, I have sensitive dry skin prone to rosiness, the coverage is light enough to look natural but still gives me enough coverage and doesn’t dry out or irritate my skin
  67. Don’t think it’s for me

    Joel

    Not amazing, quite sticky and tacky which I HATE. I don’t think the ordinary works in my favour unfortunately, I don’t love their skincare either.
  68. APPROVED!!

    Ange

    I used the foundation finder and I got an exact match!! This foundation is extremely affordable. Easy to blend and has a medium coverage. Great buy!
  69. Good coverage

    Emily

    This is a good foundation - I love the dewy look it leaves after an hour or so. I do find it a little difficult to dertermine which colour to buy (i didn’t think I had a pink-toned skin but the yellow fair tone is previously tried wasnt quite right). This one is pretty accurate, but I might try another shade next time to compare.
  70. Great coverage

    Cate

    I thought I would give this a go.. it covers my face beautifully.. a little goes a long way.. feels very light weight on your face would use again
  71. Ok for the price

    Cate

    I thought I would give this a go.. it covers my face beautifully.. a little goes a long way.. feels very light weight on your face would use again.. great range in shades
  72. Beautiful foundation for the price

    SUzanne

    I used the colour match and it worked perfectly for me! Very pleased with this foundation. I have dry skin and I notice this foundation goes on quite lightly, it's not as much coverage as other foundations I've used. (Although I know others have the opposite experience!) But I'm using a lot of moisture under the foundation and the high spreadability primer as well, maybe this makes it more serum like..
    For me it's very light and dewy at first (again, I'm putting a lot under it) but after 30 minutes it's matt on me (skin absorbs all the dewy) For me it's a very natural breathable foundation. My only negative is it doesn't last very long. But I live in an extremely humid climate so I'm not sure that's the foundations fault but that's the only reason I can only give four stars instead of five. I use a primer (ordinary) underneath, as well as a Rimmel setting spray both underneath and over the top to try and combat this and seems to be helping a little. Price, colour and consistency means I will definitely be ordering again!
  73. good

    NINA

    worth the money but not my favourite , a bit drying and shade hard to match so will have to mix with another shade
  74. Good coverage

    abigail

    It is quite concentrated so a little goes a far way but for heavier coverage it would work well also. I’ve got olive skin so it suits well, might get a lighter shade for winter.
  75. Good coverage at a great price

    Krissy

    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.
  76. Unbelievably Good

    Lisa

    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!
  77. Really sticky when on

    Jacinta

    Really sticky when on, needs powder to set!
  78. Oh my goodness

    Kirsty

    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.
  79. Would be great for people that don’t have problematic skin

    Miranda

    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 :/
  80. Seems good for the price, darker shade than expected

    Laura

    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!
  81. Worth buying

    Alisa

    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 :)
  82. Great inexpensive

    Monique

    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.
  83. Definitely worth a try but...

    Marcella

    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.
  84. Decent, not wonderful

    Jen

    Not a bad foundation, but seems to separate on the skin and settles into creases. Will persevere, but not in love yet.
  85. 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
  86. pleasantly surpirsed

    Lily

    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
  87. Really liked this foundation

    Bec

    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.
  88. lovely full coverage

    Gen

    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.
  89. Great everyday foundation

    Steph

    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
  90. So good.

    Lina

    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.
  91. High End Quality - Drugstore Price

    Brianna

    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
  92. Great foundation!!

    Huyen

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

    Paige

    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!
  94. Light and Good for your skin

    Lauren

    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.
  95. Amazing for pale skin

    Laura

    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!!
  96. Full Coverage, cult status like Estee Lauder's Double Wear

    Nadine

    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!
  97. Great Price & Feels Good On Skin

    Laura

    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.
  98. Great, well priced foundation

    Rebecca

    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!
  99. Incredible value but also incredible formula

    Melissa

    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.
  100. My go to foundation

    Jo

    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.
