If you are looking for a sheer coverage everyday foundation this is perfect. The price is awesome and the bottle comes with a pump which I always appreciate. It's also just really easy to apply and I find it last just fine. Bought this multiple times now.

Nice cheap foundation
This foundation has a nice smooth feel to it and good amount of coverage. Also very inexpensive. However, I found the colour match lighter than I wanted so I'd advise to cross-check colour with a few existing foundation colours you already have.

Better than BB creamI have always had difficult dry and sensitive skin that does not take well to foundations so have stuck to bb creams for a long time. I decided to take a leap and try this one. It's actually amazing. Sits better on my skin than most BB creams I have tried. Absolutely love it. Zero dry partches. Did not gather all that much. Occasionally at the end of the day there's a little bit of movement but not enough to be noticeable. It is a velvet finish. I use 1.1p and 1.2p
WOWTHIS 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
Best FoundationGood coverage, amazing colour match would defiantly recommend for light to medium coverage

Love it!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 velvety 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.
Such a pretty glowy finish that helps even out skin toneI very rarely wear foundation because I don't like looking like I'm wearing anything. This honestly looks so natural and it just glows. It doesn't really cover much, but evens out my skin tone well, which is all I was really after. I've noticed that it doesn't last all day on my skin, and I have pretty normal skin, not oily, dry or blemished. But considering its price and formula it exceeds my expectations.
Great foundationInvest and skincare and you would need much foundation at all. This one is the best cos I just mix it with primer or sun screen and it doesn’t make me feel like I’m wearing too much. It doesn’t cake and blends well
My new everyday foundation.I love this foundation. A super light a dewy formula that still delivers a fully covered look. I use a damp beauty blender to apply but can easily be applied with fingers also. This stays all day working in my retail job. The colour range is fantastic. I used the foundation matching and was 1.1 N which is perfect.
Doesn't Like My SkinI was really disappointed with this because so many of my friends have spoken highly of it but it just doesn't sit well on my skin.
It was very streaky and settled into weird parts of my face. Very oily and moved heaps throughout the day (I had to powder constantly).
The shade range is amazing and the price is fantastic but it just doesn't want to co-operate with my skin.
Second time aroundFInally bought a shade suitable for my skin (after buying one too light) still love the product. Makes skin looks extremely smooth and feel it too! Gives a velvety skin look. Lovely for the price really
Best foundation I’ve ever usedI love this foundation so much! I usually find foundation too heavy and hard to match with my skin tone. This one is the total opposite. It blends in perfectly and looks so natural. I cannot imagine a better result.
I mix with the coverage foundationTogether 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.
Holy grail foundationDefinitely, my favorite foundation feels like nothing on the skin and a bonus that it comes in good shades!
My new favourite foundationLove love LOVE this foundation. It’s light on the skin, has a natural finish and doesn’t make me break out at all (I have combination/ sensitive skin). Took me a couple of goes to find my shade, but that’s no one’s fault lmao
A little bit goes a long way so this will definitely last you a while. It’s a very thin (almost watery) formula but is also buildable for higher coverage.
Love this foundationI find it super lightweight and hydrating. It smooths on beautifully and gives just enough coverage to hide imperfections but not look like I'm wearing makeup. Leaves my skin looking healthy and glowy without feeling heavy like some BB creams - It's my go-to summer foundation.
It's just okBit over rated! Its super oily and not long lasting. Works well to mix with a dry foundation or to use for contouring. GREAT for the price!
Great finish and long lastingAmazing product! 1 pump is enough coverage for single use so no wastage. Light weight and great Matt coverage lasting a full day!
Nice coverageThis foundation is great especially for the price. It doesn't live up to most of the more expensive foundations I have used but for something with a wide colour range and a ridiculous price point it's a really nice 'no brainer, slap it on' sort of product. I bought the coverage foundation in the same shade and they are nice worn together.
Beautiful natural finishI’ve used this for close to a week now and I’m so, so happy I bought it.
I suffer from dry & dehydrated skin (lacking in both water and oil) so my skin tends to be overly textured. Getting a smooth finish from my makeup is nearly impossible.
This foundation is the perfect balance between being moisturising but still looking like makeup, if that makes sense. I have stepped my up skincare game to remove dead cells, but even still, makeup usually sits on top of my skin or slip-slides around. This one just...aheres. I absolutely love the finish. I don’t feel cakey at all.
The coverage is just right and is nicely buildable if I want a little more. I apply it with a Morphe buffing brush, but fingers work just as well to be honest.
I love it and will be repurchasing.
Every Day EssentialI love this lightweight foundation for everyday use. I don't want to look caked on but at the same time want to feel like I have a smooth, even base. This foundation is perfect and I find that it is buildable if you want.
Easy, beautiful application, but did not wear wellThis product still needs experimenting with. It goes on easily and can beyond up to a nice everyday coverage. I loved it. Only thing was after 8 hours at work I came home to my makeup looking oily in my t-zone and cheeks. I have dry skin so I’ve never had this problem before. I’m hoping that with the perfect primer it will wear better.
good coveragegiven the price, it's a really good foundation and i like the dewy finish.
Great for the price!This is an amazing, lightweight foundation with many undertones to choose from. Is it amazing? No, it's not - but honestly, I don't care considering it only costs like $13!!! You can purchase more than one shade to colour-match and you won't even make a dent in your bank account. It's honestly good stuff
FantasticReally lightweight, good coverage, easy to wear. I don't really like wearing foundation, so this was great for me. My best friend also uses it, and she just wears a tad more than I do as she likes a fuller coverage. Might not be great for really dry skin because it is so light; having said that, it mixes really well with a moisturiser. Love it!
Amazing light foundationI have only been using this foundation for 2 days but I have fallen in love with it! The consistency is perfect, it is very light, just like any other serums. The coverage is great, I would say it's medium coverage, it hides the redness around my nose and small zits on my forehead very well. I use a matte powder on top to set this foundation and it has worn beautifully throughout the day. I have very oily skin but this foundation sits very well on my face even after a full day 8-9 hours (I do blot my face once during the day). The colour range is great, I own 1.2YG and 2.0 YG, it's so hard for me to find foundation with true yellow undertones, I'm so glad I bought this foundation as the shades match me very well. I'm currently using 2.0YG but will be mixing it with the lighter 1.2YG as i usually get paler over winter. Highly recommend this foundation, for the price point, it is an absolute bargain.
Amazing for the price!Great product for the price. Pump pack is very convenient. I do use a little more product than other foundations to get reasonable coverage, but at this price I don't mind. Good option to get a few in different shades and mix and match your skin tone depending on the season/to match fake tan. Great finish and lasts most of the day. I use it for travel as the bottle isn't glass, and its quite compact.
OKThis foundation is ok. It is lightweight, but I'm not completely sold on it, as it appears oily quickly after applying. I think it would suit someone with dry skin.
Best colour.. light.. longwearingIn love with this foundation. It reminds me of Mac face and body foundation.. but slightly more matte.
Its pigmented enough and very lightweight.
What's great for me is the shade is absolutely perfect for my skin. 2.0 YG ...the bomb for yellow undertoned skin. Its quite a task to find a low cost foundation with the perfect shade like this. So stoked!
Love this for everyday wearI struggled to find a light foundation for everyday wear until I came across THIS beauty! Perfect shade, dab a little bit in a few red spots to even out the colour, and it doesn't leave any streaks or marks. The Neutral / Light / Dark tones are great too for avoiding that pink or orange look.
If you need full coverage, this isn't for you, but perfect if you're looking for a light, everyday glow!
Perfect for meThe Ordinary is just the gift that keeps on giving!
I purchased this product on a whim, without using Adore Beauty's colour matching option. Previously unhappy with my foundation shade matching my skin - I took a guess - and it paid off!
I have extremely fair skin and always find foundation throws orange on my face. This foundation matched my skin perfectly.
I'm not a heavy makeup user, and tend to prefer BB cream, however this foundation is light and easy to apply. It has great coverage and a beautiful finish.
It is extremely affordable and I have the Silicone Primer on my wishlist,which I think would be a perfect match for this foundation.
Thanks The Ordinary, you have ticked all the boxes for me!
Love this for everydayI love this lightweight foundation for everyday use. I don't want to look caked on but at the same time want to feel like I have a smooth, even base. This foundation is perfect and I find that it is buildable if you want.
I used to use the Smashbox waterwight foundation for everyday but since i've tried this there is no turning back. Such a great price too!!
Fabulous everyday foundation even for dry skinI bought this on a whim just to see what the hype was all about and it’s well justified! I hate dry cakey foundation that feels like a mask and wasn’t sure if this would feel heavy and it’s light and the coverage is excellent. I’ve got mature combo skin and was also concerned it would either be greasy or leave dry patches, I don’t experience either issue. I’m absolutely religious about my morning skin care regime and use TO 23% Vitamin C HA mixed with their 3% Reversetrol & Ferulic Acid, I use quite a thick formulation moisturiser and once it sets top with TO Silicone High Adherence Primer, then this. I pat lightly on, one pump is more than adequate, and blend with my Beauty Blender and the finish is natural, it doesn’t oxidise and has incredible staying power. Not bad at all especially for the price. I find I’m switching to more and more of TO’s products from the ultra high end stuff I have been using and I’ve yet to be disappointed. I really believe the secret to my success with this foundation is skin preparation. This is definitely worth a try!
Great liquid foundationThis foundation is light, full coverage and when applied to skin looks so natural. Great every day foundation.
Sheer, long lasting coverage!This foundation is more sheer than its full coverage counterpart making it a great foundation for those who don’t need full coverage. I love that it has a Serum in it too. I find it slightly too sheer for me to wear alone (I have pigmentation and old acne marks) but under a powder such as Nude by Nature Mineral Powder, it gives a great long lasting result. A nice foundation.
The best of the bestI have mature skin with lines. I used The Ordinary Serum Foundation which I used after their moisturizer and primer. You only need a very small amount and it spreads beautifully. I patted on some of The Ordinary opacity fluid to add a little more colour. As they say, the proof is in the pudding. I met a friend i had not seen in 10 years who said I had not aged in that time. The foundation is very natural looking and light. It does not sit in my lines and even after 6 hours was still looking good. I bought the color using the Adore comparison tool and it was spot on. I would highly recommend The Ordinary serum foundation for ease of use, spreadability, longevity and value for money.
Would of been great it I had chose the right shade :(I bought this foundation awhile ago when it first came out, unfortunately the shade I purchased was too light (my error) however I still wore it around the house to see what it was like.
First off, omg!! It leaves skin so silky, I’ve never experienced this before with any foundation!!! It’s so weird but so awesome! Second the coverage is actually so good!! It gives a slightly powdered look but it still looks so natural. The staying power is also quite good for such a cheap foundation! Great for every day use I say, cheap and good for your skin. Give it a go!
Excellent day foundationI’ve reviewed The Ordinary coverage foundation in 1.2P and purchased this serum foundation in the same shade for lighter coverage for daytime . It perfectly matches my light olive with pink skin tones. It combines beautifully with my sunscreen which I then apply with a beauty blender. A sheer coverage which is excellent for day wear without being heavy or cakey (which I hate as I’m nearly 50) and wears well all day. Excellent quality, is buildable and gives an all over skin improvement without looking made up! Tick! This is my third bottle and hope they continue it.
Great productApplies so light and has an amazing finish
Light to medium coverage without feeling greasy on the skinThis foundation is so easy to wear day to day or build up to wear as a base for a more full coverage look. Has a nice natural, skin like finish and doesn’t clog up my pores.
LightweightI find this product to be good for a very light weight coverage foundation . Good to use on days you want to have minimal makeup. Blends in easy with a beauty sponge. Is a little more oily then I expected, but it’s good quality for the price range
Great coverage colors just not my colorThe coverage of the product is wonderful and very lightweight. It feels like a serum rather than a caked on foundation which is fantastic. The coverage is medium to full on my skin, a little bit goes a long way. You can also build the coverage to be full. Unfortunately the color match isn’t the best but I am likely to get this foundation in another color
Great Light coverageGreat product. Great coverage for daywear makeup.. Love the selection of tones!
Too dewy for meThis foundation claims a semi-matte finish but I think that's for non-oily skin types. It feels great on and blends really well, but immediately made my skin look super shiny even with a primer underneath, which accentuated fine lines. Also the shade I was matched with was a bit too dark - recommend going one lighter than the shade finder recommendation.
Colour matching is hardI recently purchased The Ordinary Serum Foundation - 2.0P Light Medium – Pink.
However, I’ve now tried it and I’m finding it too yellow. Please could you advise what colour would be best for me (this one said it had pink undertones, but I think it seems more yellow).
I’ve found Natio Tinted Moisturiser SPF 20 in Neutral colour and Honey colour both suit me, but the Find My Shade app on your site said it couldn’t work with these products, even though they were listed.
I'm wondering if all The Ordinary shades are quite yellow, given this one was listed as pink?
Look forward to your thoughts.
Amazing foundation for dry skinI am very pale, freckled and tend to be dry on my forehead and cheeks.
This foundation looks absolutely flawless on, I have had so many compliments and friends asking what I'm wearing! And with my skin that NEVER happens to me!
You only need to use the tiniest squirt on a damp beauty blender and it takes just few seconds to do your whole face, perfect for everyday and could easily layer this for a high coverage situation if you want.
I am in love!
Fantastic every day productThis is a wonderful every day foundation. I use it for work where I like a medium coverage that lasts well.
It's just OKI bought this hoping i'd love it (like I love all my other products from the ordinary)and unfortunately I didn't. I find that I really need to work it in with a beauty blender to make it look ok and even then I find it can accentuate and sit in fine lines.
AMAZINGTHis is without a doubt the best foundation I have ever used. A little goes a long way with this and has THE BEST coverage ever! It’s so deep and hydrating at the same time and I don’t even need to set with powder. Would 100000% recommend to anyone wanting a good coverage foundation! And for the cost of it too!
My favourite foundationI have combination, fair skin and I always used to have trouble finding the right shade and something that didn't leave me feeling cakey. I found with a lot of light-wear foundations that they didn't cover enough or they were oily, and I never bought the same foundation more than two or three times. Since using this, I am sticking to it. I feel hydrated and covered (light/medium) but It doesn't feel or look like I'm wearing much make up at all. Also so many colours to choose from. I tell all my friends to get it.
Perfect for everyday use.I needed a light foundation for everyday wear and this was exactly what I was looking for. I have sensitive-blemished skin so I wanted something that would help my skin 'breathe; and this foundation was the 'one',
Great coverageGoes on nicely, great price, would definitely re purchase, though my colour match was a bit out, I’d go a little darker next time
Great natural finishLove this! Beautiful natural finish, a little dewy which I like but I have combination skin so I’m not sure if I’d recommend it to those with oily skin.
Light coverage. But not good on my sensitive skinI have given this product a good try and have probably used about half of it in my desire for it to be good.
The shade match was perfect as recommended by Adore. It goes on nicely.
But. It irritates my skin and I don’t find that it lasts long and even encourages my oily skin.
I would say that I don’t recommend it for oily or sensitive skin.
Great value and qualityI originally purchased this after having purchase a new skincare regime of The Ordinary products. I was worried at first as I have oily/combination skin and a lot of foundations accentuate that. This foundation honestly exceeded my expectations. It provides natural coverage and can be layered if needed, has staying power and doesn’t feel heavy on the skin. Great value
LOVE this foundation!Such an amazing foundation at an excellent price. It’s hard to find decent foundations light enough for me but the lightest neutral shade is perfect. Coverage is good without feeling too heavy and it lasts well
Not a nice colourI ordered a medium Yellow. It is very dark for my skin way darker than what the samples look on the internet. Its also a very yellow unnatural colour so wont be wearing. Very disappointed as I had such high expectations and it was a waste of money.
This is my 3rd bottleThis foundation is light and has good coverage so you don’t fee like your wearing foundation .
There are lots of shades . I’m naturally super fair so I usually struggle with foundation colours looking cakey. This one doesn’t do that as has very light shades available . Does not cause breakouts whatsoever on my sensitive acne prone skin. Highly recommend
Better than BB creams!This foundation has similar coverage to a BB cream, but has a more lightweight feeling. I have combo skin, and found it did somewhat cling to dry patches. However throughout the day, this problem seems to go away.
Great for the priceI have dry skin and found this foundation great to apply. Glides on with ease and doesn’t cling to any dry patches. I did however find that after 8 hrs of wear my t-zone got especially oily. It’s a great product for the price, but maybe I’ll have to put a mattifying primer on underneath to combat this.
Incredible valueThis is a beautiful light- medium glowy foundation. For the price it is an unbelievable steal with a skin-like finish. Best for drier and textured skin but could be used by anyone. The only issue I found is that it transfers if not set but overall the ordinary provides a high-end product at an affordable price!
Great product for the price!I have dry skin and use this to conceal. It can be drying however I apply an oil underneath. It lasts a full work day. Great product for the price. Sometimes the pump can clog causing foundation to spurt everywhere so keep the pump clean as possible.
Not good for dry skin, but good on oily skin!I got the shade fair-pink. I have cool undertones and usually wear NARS monte blanc. The colour was an excellent match for me colour wise. Sadly that's about all I can say for me. It clung to my dry skin, separated on my nose almost immediately, and just looked really unnatural and gross on my skin.
However, i handed it on to a friend who is the same shade foundation as me but has oily skin and she loves it. I believe my skin just didn't like this one.
good light coverageI have sensitive, mature skin which reacts to many foundations but this one has not caused me any skin problems. The coverage for a serum is actually quite good, not too light so you don't need to use much. It spreads evenly, especially over a primer. (I use the ordinary's primers.) The colour match to my old foundation Paulas Choice' Best Linen turned out to be fair neutral with silver, however, i found the latter to be too 'white' for my skin tone - PC's foundation is a better match for me. Nonetheless, the ordinary's foundation was still flattering and I think it'll be a good match for my winter skin colour. For now, during summer, I'll use it at night in dim lighting which makes my skin look glowy without any cheap shimmer.
silly smooththis foundation serum has surpisingly great coverage! i was pleasantly surprised when trying this for the first time and now it is my go to foundation for every day ! a small amount definitely goes a long way ! the colour match tool makes it super easy to choose the correct colour for you as well if you're a first time buyer!
Great everyday stapleThe product is super light weight but still has a decent coverage. Great for everyday/work etc as it can really showcase your skin. A little goes a long way with this foundation as it so light. I find it's best applied with fingers and then a beauty blender (not a brush) as it is so lightweight.
Good coverage - light feeling, just a bit drying.I have terribly dry skin and I liked the coverage, I have been wearing this all week but I am finding that it is starting to dry out my skin even more. It's better than Serum foundation but I might need to switch back to the other brand I was using.
I wanted to love this - not good for dry skinI prefer a heavier coverage, this is far too light and almost dissolved into my skin. I wouldn't get this again. I have dry skin and found that it just highlight all the patchy areas instead of keeping them at bay. I really wanted to love this, but will be giving this a miss.
Good for the price not for my skinThis is a good foundation but I'm quite dry and found it caked a little bit around my t-zone. Still a nice lightweight for everyday if you don't want anything too heavy, a nice colour selection too and for the price its a great everyday product!
Beautiful, great value productI purchased both this and the coverage foundation from TO. I am in love with this serum formula (and much prefer it over the coverage version). I have oily t-zone combination skin (very little breakout) and found this light serum provided perfect coverage. I applied it on one occasion with a beauty blender and found the blender sucked up way too much product (I had even wetted it first with a spray). The finished look was alright, a bit cakey around the nose area. On the second occasion I applied using just my fingers in a moisturising motion and applied a second light layer over areas which needed more coverage and found the finished look to be much more seamless, smooth and nice. I would definitely recommend using a dewy setting spray as the formula dries down to a powdery, matte look very quickly. I love this product and will repurchase because of the formula, the finish, and of course the price.
Not badThere isnt anything terrible about this makeup - it is good for the price. However it is not a long lasting foundation and it doesnt provide much coverage. It feels moisturising on the skin and is good for short periods of time. Transfers to clothes easily.
Nice for a light foundationI liked this foundation overall, but I would say it had a light coverage. It was good for everyday use, it did have a thin consistency but I found that the application was even. I have normal to dry skin and I found that this product didn’t dry out my skin which was great. I had never used any of this range but was easily able to match my shade which was a great bonus.
Feels light on my face and matches my skin colour really well!I love this serum. It feels so light and doesn't feel like I'm wearing a heavy foundation. I wish there was a way to test the colours before purchasing, however, I picked really well and this colour matches me perfectly. Super happy with it!
Huge bang for your buckI was wary about trying this because of some of the reviews but I've used a lot of the Ordinary's products and I thought it couldn't hurt to try it, at twelve bucks and change!
This foundation is light and blends easily. There are a lot of shades to match to your skin tone. I have fair, slightly yellow skin and chose shade 1.2.
I usually wear BB cream; this is still light & sheer but gives slightly more coverage than a BB. It goes well over moisturizer (I also wear a primer) and stays on pretty much all day as far as I can tell.
I was pleasantly surprised by this foundation and will likely purchase again.
A fantastic lightweight foundationI really love how lightweight this foundation serum is! It spreads evenly and gives me the coverage I want - a smooth and thin veil to even out the tone of my skin. I don’t like heavy foundations and have been using a BB cream until now - this is even lighter!! It’s so well priced too!! I have bought a bottle for my friend I like it so much!!
Good, but light and oilyI'm usually a full coverage kinda girl (my go to foundation is estee lauder double wear) but thought i would give this foundation a go for something lighter during the day on weekends. While the application is smooth and spread quite nicely over the face it is not suited to my skin type. Have an oily t zone and 1 hour into it most of the foundation had rubbed off. Not much staying power so probably wont purchase again.
Love this foundationLight weight and just makes my skin look less dull and skin tone more even. Everything I want in a daytime foundation
Lovely and light but oilyI have combination skin and while this product looks great when my breakouts are at bay, it’s not suitable during a breakout as there’s not enough coverage and it tends to look quite oily by midday.
Good pricethis product is well priced and light coverage, would buy again
Love this light foundationI am big fan of this lightweight foundation. Goes on really smooth and perfect for light coverage for people who don’t want that cakey look / feel. Wears well throughout the day as well.
10/10 would recommend to a friendI don’t wear foundation during the day, only BB cream. And when I want to go to an event I try and use something a bit more covered. This foundation is amazing! So light weight yet such good coverage. Enough coverage but still light to show a few freckles. Works great on dry skin!
Good CoverageThis foundation is great for everyday wear. Doesn't feel like your wearing foundation but provides a good amount of coverage. If your looking for a full coverage foundation then this is not for you. This is similar to a tinted BB Cream but with more coverage.
Good for $, That's ItThis foundation is brilliant for it's price, and perfect if you've got flawless skin.
However, my skin is acne-prone and has a lot of breakouts quite regularly, so it only works if I'm not worried about the texture of my skin.
Super nice formula, but doesn't look great all day.
Amazing price, definitely buy it to see how it goes with your skin, after all it's only a couple of dollars.
In love with this product!!Although wasn’t expecting as watery as it was, still enjoyed the coverage and fits my complexion and skin tone. Will definitely be recommending to family and friends.
Great, lightweight foundationI use this foundation daily for combination skin with hormonal acne and I find it is great, doesn't irritate my skin and sits well however often by 5pm has sweated/slid off. It is a light, runny consistency and has mre of a BB cream type coverage however for the price it is great.
I am a darker colour in this than I have ever been in any product so perhaps go a tad darker than usual.
Great Colour/ Very LiquidyAlthough this is a good colour for my VERY pale skin, it's consistency is very runny making it an uneven application, looking patchy and getting very shiny throughout the day. Definitely not a long-wear foundation.
Not the best for dry skinSkin 50+ and dry. Light with freckles
Colour: I tried the 1.2N but this was still a little too yellow for my skin tone in winter. I should have bought the 1.2P
Texture: I was really happy when I got it as it is a light fluid. However even though I used their FABULOUS foundation primer, it dried too easily on my skin and was difficult to blend. I found it separated on my skin with perspiration.
Great for daily wearVery light texture but still having excellent coverage and a price that even beats supermarket brands but has department store quality. Good range of colours and was able to find my match straight off the bat with Adore’s colour chart that compares the colour with other brands.
WowzaSince being pregnant I’ve had to put away some of my holy grail foundations as they refuse to sit on my skin. Received this foundation today and am shocked at how well how sitting on my skin, it’s looking amazing and feels amazing. A few hours in and I’m so impressed :)
My skin type is dry and my colour is 1.1n fair
Silky coverage!I LOVE anything from The Ordinary, and this has continued to impress me. I have dry combo skin so it’s important to find a foundation that is nourishing. This leaves a silky feel and doesn’t make my skin look dry. I blend two shades to match and would definitely recommend to friends :)
Great for everyday use!I'm not a hug fan of using foundation everyday. I have combination skin and pores that easily clogged and break out. I've been loving using this mixed in with my daily spf moisturiser! It provides just the right amount of coverage for a natural glow and does not break me out.
Love this!I was excited to try this product but with having sensitive skin was worried it may not suit. I've been using for 2 weeks now and no problem! Great light to medium coverage and a little goes a long way! Will def buy again! Great price too ;)
Don't let the price trick you, cheap yet it works!Beautiful light consistency, buildable and doesn't smell too bad. Perfect for a Sunday afternoon lunch or a great alternative to just a light weight face for a casual day.
Love this product - Super lightweightI love this product, I have been using it for about a week as a light foundation to wear during the day while at work. I do feel that my skin is a little bit shiny by the end of the day but its great for keeping my skin hydrated in an air conditioned office
Not mad on itThe colour I got was really nice and really suited my skin tone, unfortunately the formula is a bit too oily for me. I have pretty dry/normal skin but found this product after a couple of hours really highlighted my pores and slid around on my face. I’m going to give it another go when winter comes around as I think it could suit dry skin, but at this point won’t be using again.
Light coverage, great for dailyI love how dewy my skin looks when I use this on a daily basis. (I have combination skin and it helps cover my dry patches without looking cakey). However this is quite light coverage and doesn't stay that well during the day. I would recommend using powder to also reduce its oily appearance.
Good foundation, terrible colour.This is a really good foundation, looks really natural and not at all cakey but the colour is too yellow. I have warm skin tones and got the medium, yellow undertone one for this reason but it was far too yellow - I looked jaundiced. So this time I tried the medium, pink undertones and it was still much too yellow; I can get away with it at night but not in daylight. I think people with cool tones to their skin would not be able to use this.
Photoshop in a bottleThis foundation is so great because it isn't heavy and you can't see it on your face really. If you want full coverage this many not be right for you but if you are looking for an even tone that isn't too obvious, this is the foundation for you. I absolutely love it, I've used chanel, lancome, mac etc but I always come back to this foundation.
non-drying light-weight coverage at the perfect price!This foundation was the perfect match for my skin tone (which is not easy being biracial and even shopping in store!) they have such a wide range of shades and feels so light weight on the skin. The formula comes out quite watery so I prefer to smooth it over the face with my hands first them smooth it would with a foundation blending brush. The perfect coverage for a non-makeup wearer such as myself - as student budget friendly! Will definitely be repurchasing
Good but breaks me outLove this the finish and the colour but this stuff breaks me out! It completely clogs my pores, which is really disappointing. Coverage isn't anything special but it's great for a good skin day. Sadly I can't use it anymore, but I'd recommend giving it a go considering how cheap it is.
