    Very Ordinary

    Very ordinary foundation... Its nothing special and I feel like there are a lot better foundations out there if you just spend a little more money. This slips around so much, and it not matte at all like it claims to be. It'll feel wet on your face the whole day if you don't powder over it and because of that, it'll come off your face easily too. One precaution is that this is much thinner and water-like than most foundations so be careful when you first use it.

    Moderate coverage at a great price

    I was a bit skeptical at first given the somewhat mixed reviews by a number of youtube bloggers. However, since the price was so low, I figured it was worth a shot (it comes in way cheaper than most drugstore brands of foundations). I have been using the coverage foundation, as well as the serum foundation for about 3 months and I have to say I love it so much. The coverage is just about right, and wears pretty long without having to set with powder. My skin is generally sensitive, but has worked out quite well with the foundation so far.

    Only downside is the lack of shades, though I'm unfair in comparing their range to other brands like Clinique and Laura Mercier. The colour is close enough to my skin and should work great for most skin tones. I just wish there was something more yellow/petal undertone - right now, its either yellow, gold, pink, or beige.

    A staple in my “everyday makeup routine”

    the ordinary coverage foundation is a great product at an amazing price.. I’ve gone through at least 4 of these already and l just ordered more! In my opinion, this foundation provides medium coverage but it is buildable. It feels so light and applies evenly., this foundation has a semi-matte finish. I love that my skin looks so natural when I use this. I hope to see the ordinary add more shades of this foundation in the near future. :)

    Great and Affordable Foundation!

    I'm a big fan of The Ordinary serums so I was so excited to try this foundation. I've always struggled to find a foundation that is true to my skin color, so I was very pleased to be able to choose from a variety of shade and undertone combinations. I do love how lightweight it is and how natural it looks in comparison to some of the cakier foundations out there. My only drawback is that it can cause my skin to look a little too glowy (as it is pretty oily), but it's not something some powder can't fix.

    I prefer this to the Serum Foundation

    I bought the Serum Foundation first and quite liked it but I think it's better for the summer, for my needs anyway. I have a drier skin and prefer a little more coverage so I really like the Coverage Foundation. It is similar to NYX's Total Control Drop Foundation - a watery feel but ultimately buildable, full coverage foundation. It leaves a matte finish with a velvety feel and works well my favourite foundation brush. They are also made to be used with The Ordinary's primers, which I use, and they work so well together.
