The Ordinary Foundations – Yay or Nay ?!

I love a good budget foundation , so when I first heard about The Ordinary Foundations a few months ago I immediately knew I would have to try them for myself ! These foundations are really cheap and the packaging is in the same vein as the rest of The Ordinary collection . I bought two foundations , the full coverage and the serum .

Serum FoundationĀ 

In case you have not guessed I love this foundation , we had a rocky start as your skin would need to be nicely hydrated before you put this on or else it will stick to any dry patches . I have been using this with the Bourjois primer and it is a fab combination . This is one of those your skin but better products . I only use one pump , beware , it is very liquid so use sparingly ! I love the fact I can still see my freckles when wearing this šŸ˜‰ It lasts for a full day and feels really light on the skin ! The colour range is quite good on this and as am I very fair I went for the 1.0 N very fair shade , it was perfect on me ! I highly recommend it .


High Coverage Foundation

I do not normally opt for high coverage foundations but as this was so cheap I had to try it out ! I was very surprised at this one , although it says high coverage , it really is not ! I found it to be light to medium coverage ( hits the medium side if you build it up !) Again the shade on this was the 1.0 N Very fair and I found that to be perfect for my colouring . To be honest I find this to be very like the Serum foundation although less liquid, I would still only use one pump of this as well .I really like this BUT if you love a really high coverage foundation then this would not be for you , however if you like your foundations to be light then this will be right up your street .


Overall I really love The Ordinary foundations and I will definitely be repurchasing the serum foundation ! Have any of you used these foundations ?
