Heyyyyy everyone, welcome back!
As usual, I’m on a foundation hype and have been going slightly mad!I’m thinking about doing a whole post where I rate all the foundations I own. For years and years, I stuck to one foundation, and one foundation only – Estee Lauder Double Wear. And while I love this foundation so much, sometime the price gets in the way, and a girl hasn’t got over £30 to spend on a foundation! Times are toughhhhhhh.
So anyway, I decided to finally buy The Ordinary Coverage Foundation, as I am coverage girl, and I like the full coverage look (especially in Winter). The Ordinary is brand I’ve fallen in love with because of their unique skincare remedies along with a really great price tag!
So lets talk about the Coverage Foundation….
First of all the price, so you can pick this up from ASOS for £6!
£6 I think is such a good price, considering a lot of the drugstore foundations are priced over £7 and most of them are around the £10 mark. So for £6 you’ve got yourself a pretty good deal! Although the bottle is only 30ml which isn’t that much, but it’s still good price!
I always buy from ASOS as well because I have the premier account (which is dangerous as I’m always on there).
Next up, I want to just mention the colour options. Normally a drugstore foundation only comes in like a maximum of 10 shades, but nope, not this one. This comes in 21 shades. yes 21!!!!!!!!!
I love this because I find it so hard picking the right shade, and to be honest, when I bought this one, I just had to guess because I couldn’t swatch it or anything. I picked up this in shade 2.0N Light Medium, and you know what, I actually think this is my perfect shade.
I think it does oxidise slightly, as when you first apply it, it seems lighter, and then when it drys it does actually turn into a darker shade, but not too dramatically.
As you can see from this photo, for £6 it even comes with a pump applicator, making life easier for us girls when applying it. I don’t know about you, but I just seem to tip foundation out like it’s going out of fashion and that means I either waste it, wipe it all over my clothes, or I apply way too many layers!
But this, is just perfect!
Now coverage wise, I’d say yeah, this is pretty full coverage. I have tried quite a lot of drug store ‘full coverage’ foundations before and some of them are just not what they say on the tin. However, yeah I think we can say this gives good coverage.
It’s one of those foundations that isn’t thick at all but still leaves good coverage – if that makes any sense at all.
I like to compare full coverage bases to Double Wear but, this is no way near as thick in terms of texture than Double Wear. This is quite liquid and blends really easily.
It is a MATT finish, which I’m starting to love more and more as I swear my skin is getting really oily!
I wore this foundation all day yesterday and even after 10 or so hours, I didn’t really get any shine come through which is perfect!
I really really like this foundation, and I think I will be repurchasing this one again as it really works well with my skin.
Have you tried this foundation?
If so what are your thoughts?
