The Ordinary Serum And Coverage Foundation

Back at it again with the beauty post, ayyy. Today I've decided to chat about The Ordinary Serum and coverage foundation's, their differences and if I think they're any good. The only thing I'd tried out from The Ordinary before, was their Hyaluronic Acid Serum, which I really liked, so I had high hopes for both their foundations.

Let's start off with the serum foundation shall we? This is the lighter coverage out of the two, and has a very watery consistency, as the name would suggest. I've tried applying this with both a beauty blender and foundation brush, and I found the two give very different results. When using the beauty blender, this gives a super light/sheer coverage, so if you were looking for that then I'd recommend using a beauty blender to apply it. However, if you prefer a light/medium coverage for your foundation, then I'd recommend blending it out with a foundation brush. This definitely gives you the chance to build up the foundation more, to give a medium coverage. As for how it sits throughout the day...well pretty damn well. Its still very much on my face by the end of the day, which I was quite pleased to see, considering its literally £5!

Onto the coverage foundation. I think this is probably my favourite of the two, but thats because I prefer a lil bit more coverage because of my troublesome skin. Again, I've applied this with both a beauty blender and foundation brush and the results vary. With a beauty blender you get a medium/full coverage, but with a foundation brush it really is proper full coverage. If I'm going out in the evening or prefer a higher coverage, I'll definitely go with the foundation brush option. But for every day wear, applying with a beauty blender is perfect.

Overall, I'm pretty impressed with both of these - especially for the price. Although if I were to purchase them again, I'd certainly get a lighter colour as the lady in the shop definitely colour matched me wrong. But I'm hoping these will look a bit better in the summer months when I have a bit of a tan.

Have you ever tried The Ordinary foundations?

  9. I heard loads about the Ordinary foundations and I finally tried the coverage one last week. Mind blown! And only £5 too. Brilliant product at a brilliant price. I can't wait to try their skincare now too.

  11. I've seen so many good things about The Ordinary, I just don't know makeup very well so I get scared to try new things, especially because my skin is so sensitive, but it's so cheap so I feel I have to give one of their things a go. I like the sound of the serum, I want something lighter for my face!x

    1. I think this would be good for sensitive skin to be honest, since they're predominantly a skincare brand!
