The Ordinary – Serum Foundation – Review

Posted by

The Ordinary Serum Foundation is a budget friendly light/medium coverage, dewy foundation with a skin-like finish.

I really enjoy this foundation – it’s a beautifully natural looking product. I think that you would like this foundation if enjoy cushion foundations or water based foundation like the Smashbox BB water. I like wearing this for short periods of time like to run errands because it is not long lasting (but fades evenly throughout the day).

This foundation has a crazy big array of shades – 21 total with cool, neutral, and warm undertones. I have mine in 1.2N and it matches me pretty well, The Ordinary states that every person will match two to three shades so it should be easy to find a shade that matches you. They also have two unique shades 1.0NS and 1.2 YG – a light foundation with silver highlights and a medium shade with golden highlights. I know there was a lot of chaos when the foundations were first release (I waited 3-4 weeks for mine). Now that the hype has calmed down, I haven’t read any more about issue of keeping up with demand.

I do plan on repurchasing this foundation and I will probably buy two shades – 1.0NS, pale shade with silver highlight and a foundation in my shade – I might try their coverage formula, but maybe I’ll just stick with the serum foundation because if it’s not broken, why fix it?
