As you probably know, The Ordinary launched foundations. I already reviewed The Ordinary Coverage Foundation in a previous post and today’s post will be about the serum foundation.
Serum Foundations are lightweight medium-coverage formulations available in a comprehensive shade range across 21 shades. These foundations offer moderate coverage that looks natural with a very lightweight serum feel. They are very low in viscosity and are dispensed with the supplied pump or with the optional glass dropper available for purchase separately if preferred.
The pigments used in this format are treated for a rich, highly-saturated effect. These pigments are suspended in our proprietary spreadability system that allows pigments to look natural on the skin, resist collecting within fine lines and stay on for longer. The foundations offer a semi-matte finish and are compatible with most primers and are designed to work exceptionally well with the primers offering from The Ordinary.
The Ordinary Serum Foundation Review
This offers really light coverage, and I agree that it looks natural.
I wouldn’t say that it has a semi matte finish. At best, the semi-matteness only lasts a couple of hours on my skintone. If you have oily skin, this can quickly start to look dewy and you definitely want to set it with a powder.
It worked really well with both The Ordinary High Adherence Silicone Primer and Hylamide Matte 12 Finisher. Both primers are from Deciem.
It didn’t really do anything to cover my acne scars, but then I didn’t expect it to.
It is really lightweight and it feels weightless on the skin.
I should have a video up this weekend demo-ing it but I wanted to get this post up because Deciem just restocked most of the shades.
I think this is best for people with normal to dry skin with little to no blemishes who are just looking for that put-together look that foundation gives, but who still want to look natural.
If you read my review of the Coverage Foundation, the serum foundation is pretty much the same thing but with less coverage.
Here are some swatches of all 21 shades.
Have you tried The Ordinary Colours? What did you think?
