Medium to full coverage.
The Ordinary Coverage Foundations are full-coverage formulations available in a comprehensive shade range. These foundations contain higher pigment levels than the Serum Foundations but still offer a smooth finish that avoids the heavy makeup look. The texture is that of a lightweight, non-oily cream, and is designed to be pourable.
The pigments used in these formulations are treated for a rich, highly-saturated effect. These pigments are suspended in the Ordinary's 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, are compatible with most primers and are designed to work exceptionally well with the The Ordinary primers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Malmayn from So far I love it I ordered this about a month ago. Being in quarantine mode I have only used a few times but so far I am very impressed! I usually use Lancome bb cream and do not like heavy products. When I first apply this product I felt like it would be too dry looking or matte, but once you evenly spread the product out and add the rest of your makeup routine it sets and looks flawless! I use with the high spreadibility primer which I would reccomend, otherwise I could see it looking too dry or having a harder time spreading. This is perfect for me since it has the ability to layer for more coverage/very versatile!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sabse from The best! This foundation is the best! Feels like you are wearing no makeup at all, but has medium coverage. Was on the lookout for a replacement for my 50$ two faced foundation and definitely have found it! I ordered the shade 1.1 and is a perfect match (used to by shade snow for two faced). The shade1.1 is perfect for people on the neutral to warm side and the foundation does not make me look pale. Only con.: you have to use setting powder if you have oily or combination skin since the foundation doesn’t “dry”

Rated 5 out of 5 by FrenchiesOnParade from Beautiful Natural Looking Foundation I absolutely love this foundation!!! It is lightweight and a little goes a long way. As previous reviewers have mentioned, it does work best with The Ordinary High-Adherence Silicone Primer. I do not wear a lot of make-up and prefer the natural look, and I find this product does not get all creasy halfway through the day. The Ordinary is now my go-to for all skin-care products. They made an amazing line that is affordable for everyone. Please do not stop carrying this line... EVER!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jess from Great coverage, silky texture, awesome price. I really love this product, especially considering the price point. It offered really great coverage and I like that it comes with a pump (keeps things sanitary). The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because the shade range doesn't seem to properly range from light to dark. I got 1.1N and it's a bit too light for me (fixed with bronzer), but some of the lower numbers seem darker from their picture. I'm not sure which shade to adjust to.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anna from Love it! I have dark spots on my cheeks, forehead, and chin, therefore I always go with Dermatologist expensive full coverage foundation. since I'm working from home now I've decided to buy a cheaper one and give it a try thinking worse comes to worst I won't go out with it). I'm so glad I did. this makeup works very well giving good coverage without the flaky cakey feeling. it blends very well with the skin and feels natural and the skin looks fresh and vibrating

Rated 5 out of 5 by MissC87 from Amazing coverage!! I am so happy I tried this foundation. It covers up my redness, other foundations I would have to use a concealer first. Not with this one. It covers so well!! One pump is enough for myself, some may need more. However I find that to be enough. It blends like a dream (brush or sponge), color matches perfectly. The price is unreal. I REALLY hope this is a product they continue to make for a long time, because I will definitely be buying more, and more!

Rated 1 out of 5 by ST from What, even, is this? This slides ALL over, transfers, and does not last more than an hr on my combination skin. Even when freshly applied it emphasizes texture, settles into fine lines and pores. After a short time, it breaks up and sits on top of the skin in an undesirable way. By the end of the work day, I feel I would have looked better with no make up on than I do with this foundation. It doesn't look good at any point :(

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jenn A from Full coverage, low price I purchased the light, pink undertones and it's a bit dark for a fair skinned person. It works right now since I have a light tan but will need to go lighter than I thought next time. Overall this product is great, the container is small so I'm not sure how long it will last but for the price it seems worth it. It covers well and stays on throughout the day. Would purchase again in a lighter colour.
