Testing: The Ordinary Full-Coverage Foundation

0 comments

I'm a little late to the bandwagon but I finally have tried and tested this foundation!

Foundation claims: The Ordinary Colours Coverage Foundations with SPF15 are full-coverage formulations available in a comprehensive shade range across 21 shades. When applied, the formulations blend in effortlessly with your natural tones and your skin glows. These foundations contain higher pigment levels than the Serum Foundations but still offer a smooth finish that avoids the heavy makeup look that can make skin appear more aged. The texture is that of a lightweight, non-oily cream.
Let's get right into it, the foundation has a wide range of shades with 4 different undertones to choose from - Yellow, Pink, Red and Neutral so there should be a colour that suits your complexion. Saying that I did have to pick 2 shades which were 2.1Y and 3.0Y only because after reading some mixed reviews online I felt like 2.1Y would be slightly too light for me because my neck is much darker than my face. Surprisingly 2.1Y matched me perfectly (my current mac shade is NC40) so I didn't need the darker shade after all but its ok I'll use it during the summer when I tan some more.

At first when I applied the foundation it looked a little off colour but as I moved onto the other side it settled down to my exact shade which goes to prove that the claim of it 'effortlessly blending with the natural tones of your skin' does actually work!

The foundation is absolutely amazing, it has medium-full coverage and it can be built on because of its light weight consistency - it doesn't even look cakey which is what I love the most about this product. I prefer using this with a complexion sponge because it really does push the product into the skin making it look like 'my skin but better'. The finish of this foundation I'd like to say is semi-matte which I usually hate because I have dry skin but it didn't look bad on my skin what so ever - it actually left my skin looking radiant which you guys know I love in a foundation.



The longevity of the foundation is amazing, I wear it to work (7am-5pm) and by the end of the day even without touch ups my skin still looks flawless, it does come off around my nose but thats because I touch my face a lot so its bound to come off and in the t-zone it does look slightly oily but again I don't carry make up with me to work so it's expected. I am 100% sure if you carry powder and you touch up after 4-5 hours of wear the foundation would still look intact!

Other than that the foundation lasts a really long time on my skin and I'm impressed with it, its been my go-to foundation ever since I purchased it and I will 100% be repurchasing this when it runs out. For the price you really can't go wrong, £5.90 for a bottle which is cheaper than your usual drugstore foundation and not to mention they have a better shade range too. I've linked a video down below which gave me an idea on what shade I could possibly be, I hope it helps you all!
