Review| The Ordinary Coverage Foundation.


This is what it says on

Coverage Foundations are full-coverage formulations available in a comprehensive shade range across 21 shades. These foundations contain higher pigment levels than our 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.

The pigments used in these formulations 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.

So, I’ve been using, and loving, some of the skincare products from TheOrdinary for a while now, and I’ve been curious to try some of their makeup products as well.
And I do really like the claims this one have on having full coverage without the heavy makeup look, and the claim that it’s supposed to offer a smooth finish.
But I have to say that I’m a bit disappointed with this one.

Now, when it comes to coverage, I do find it to be a high medium, buildable coverage, so it does hold up to that claim.
However, it just looks too heavy on me. It clings to my dry pathes, it almost makes my skin look more textured than it is, and it settles in my fine lines.
So I almost feel like I need to have a beautysponge with me at all times so I can try to fix that.
And I don’t want to have to constantly be thinking about how my makeup looks.
And I also have to touch up my t-zone every couple of hours when I’m wearing this, because it gets very greasy. And that’s just not for me.

So, overall I don’t like it. It provides a good coverage, but that’s about it, in my oppinion.
But I’m curious to hear what you guys think about it?

It’s available on for 6.90EUR.
