First off, I waited soooooo long! Soooooo long, almost 3 months for this foundation. I have used this for 3 days now and I just can't deal with this foundation any longer. I was so heart broken on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd time I tried it. I was expecting so much because Wayne Goss said so along with their skincare line that totally broke me out (that's another review). Now back to this foundation. I am an NC30-NC35. I got 3 shades because I thought, foundation (2.1Y), concealer/highlight shade (1.2Y) and a contour shade (3.2N). Let's just say I am glad I got two different shade of yellow undertone. 1.2Y beautiful shade really yellow but it's light. BUT this oxidises into a banana shade! 2.1Y this is actually an orange more so than a yellow! You will look like an ompaloompa (not sure if that's how it's spelt)3.2N beautiful shade for contouring and bronzing until it goes muddy! Primer used for 3 days: Smashbox Photo Finish Primer, MUF Step 1 smoothing, Jouer Antiblemish PrimerSetting Powder used for 3 days: RCMA no colour powder, MAC SF and MAC MSFSetting Spray used for 3 days: Gerard Cosmetics Slay All day and Australis Matte sprayI used my fingers at first, then I feel so gross and finish it off with my Beauty Blender. I used a brush, yeah don't bother! All combo failed! FAILED spectacularly!!!Cons;- settles to fine lines, does nothing for pores even with great primer, highlights texture! So unflattering to my skin. Reminded me of my experience with the KVD lock it foundation. - it oxidise like no one's business!!!- it last for 2hrs at most. I can't even blot and fix it because it just disappear and seperate in areas- it is patchy with a non silicone primer- what coverage??? You can't even layer this foundation more than twice to build coverage. Terrible mess! Pro's;- It didn't break me out- good controlled pump- Price is Ok. It's almost $13AUD and I got 3 of them so almost $40 wasted.- Shade range is good, but like I said above, it oxidises and the 2.1Y is orange!!!! This reminds me of a BB cream. But you probably get a better result with a BB cream. Not mature skin friendly. I am mad at this foundation as you can probably tell. I suffered 3 days of humiliating bad foundation day at work. Mind you, it's winter in Australia right now so I am combo and not that oily at the moment. If you have a younger skin with not many problematic facial issues then this foundation can possibly work well for you. But it's a big FAIL for me.

Of course, each of us has different skin and different requirements for what is successful -- I like this formula because it works for me. I think it is an excellent foundation and easily fits in among my top favorite foundations: Chanel Vitalumiere, Guerlain Parure de Lumiere, and Lancome Renergie Lift. The price is remarkable!I have mature skin which tends to be dry and I have a tiny amount of rosacea on my cheeks. I've been faithful about using several products from The Ordinary (Vitamin C,E,Ferulic acid; Niacinamide + Zinc; Advanced Retinoid 2%; Matrixyl 10%; Rose Hip Seed Oil; 100% Squalene; Buffet....) I follow a specific regimen for a.m. and p.m. to keep my skin healthy and moisturized. Before I apply this foundation I use a foundation primer (from Hourglass, Smashbox or The Ordinary). I use a combination of my fingers and a buffing brush to apply the foundation. I set my foundation with a light application of translucent powder (Bare Minerals) or ByeBye Pores (IT Cosmetics).The Ordinary Coverage foundation works well for me. I've also had great success by mixing a bit of the Serum Foundation along with the Coverage foundation. My skin looks flawless, it covers my bits of rosacea, it doesn't accentuate my pores or wrinkles. The Coverage Foundation lasts through the work day for me and into the evening with no patchiness or wearing off. That is a success, for me.

The packaging and price are nice on this, but that's about it. I absolutely hated this. I bought this when it first came out and waited forever for it to come- but that was fine, as I knew it would take a long time, so I don't hold that against it! I was so excited when it came. I also bought the High Adherence Silicone Primer because Wayne Goss used this in his YouTube video trying it (and it's cheap too). I got 1.1 N and 1.2 N- the 1.2N was really yellow, but both still worked okay color wise on my skin. It was awful. Truly awful. I tried it with the high adherence primer, by the end of the day it had worn off in patches, looked like it hardly covered. It was even kind of greasy. Totally awful. It looked good for about 3 minutes after I applied it with my brush (I use an Artis copy brush from Crown that I got in a Boxycharm)So the next day I tried it with my favorite primer, the UD Optical Illusion primer- that normally makes me look airbrushed- and it was the same thing. Truly awful. I tried it with my RT sponge, awful. I tried it with my Elf prep and hydrate primer. Awful.After looking awful at work for so many days, I decided never again. So now I'm trying to figure out if I will give this to someone with dryer skin (I have combo/dry) or just throw it out.I have to say, I've tried the high adherence primer with my regular foundation (Revlon Colorstay) and I really like the primer. So there's that. I love a lot of things from The Ordinary- this is absolutely not one of them.

It took forever to arrive. It looks great when freshly applied but really disappears quickly. I have redness around my nose and inner cheeks and it really doesn't do a great job of covering that for long. I stuck it in a drawer - I'll use it...sometime...maybe. But honestly, you'll get better coverage out of Maybelliene - which runs around the same price.

I was really excited to receive this after waiting for around 2 months but sadly it just doesn't work for me. The coverage is poor and it settles into fine lines and breaks down on my skin after about 2 hours. Shade range is great though.

Was expecting good things from this. No. Colour match was surprisingly good considering it was bought online (two slightly different shades), however it oxidises the instant it is out of the pump and goes a much darker orange shade. It is quite thick and one pump is enough for entire face, coverage is good and I didn't need concealer besides the usual undereye stuff.But. Gathers horribly in hairline, it creases and settles instantly into the smallest lines, and separates into streaks by the end of the day (even using The Ordinary primer underneath). Adding a drop of oil to sheer it out on a less-makeup day just made it worse. On checking makeup in daylight in my car at the end of the work day, I found it had entirely disappeared from my nose and round my mouth onto my chin, gutted. I'd been walking about at work with half a face on for who knows how long. I'm not even that messy of an eater that I'd had to wipe round my mouth at lunch, so god knows how it had vanished. There was a definite makeup/no makeup line and it just looked dreadful. Tried different methods of application, with/without primer, and it just doesn't work for me. I really wish it had as the price and initial colour match is very good, but I definitely won't be buying this again. Shame. Might try mixing it with my usual MAC foundation to see what happens and use up the rest of the two bottles purchased.

This product just came out around the time I was ordering a few other products from the site and I thought, 'why not?' and got both the Serum and the Coverage products. Because why not. I think I liked the Coverage product a tiny bit more than the Serum one, but not enough to give even 2 lippies. The shade I got was 1.0N and it matches my skin, almost. It claims all sorts of things, long-lasting, no settling in lines, natural look and full cover, and then some more (sunscreen, spreadability…). Well, it applies easily (with both brush and fingers), it goes on with an almost matte finish, but it's not exactly uniform and I needed a lot of work to make it even. The final finish is definitely on the more dewy side, but it starts out almost matte and then quickly turns oily, similar to the Serum. It needs a powder to set it, it's quite sticky on it's own and doesn't set/blend into skin, so it does look like make-up, and on top of that the pigmentation is quite high (but hardly full, nope) and it does blur facial contours. Comparing against something that truly is full-cover like Dermablend 16h Fluid Ordinary gives more of a pancake face, but it's not as pigmented, doesn't cover birthmarks (which Dermablend and other full cover liquid products can actually do), for example. I can't see how the claim on superior suspended pigments is true by any stretch of imagination. Lasting power is average, about 5-6 h and by then it's shiny, despite powder (silica-based), and it does migrate into lines and pores. Long-lasting is something else. It's not that I had expected it to be this abysmal, but Ordinary make-up manages to not live up to any of their claims (which are pretty high for any make-up to live up to, honestly). Though, even if the description said simply 'lightweight, medium coverage foundation in 21 shades' then it would still be a forgettably bad foundation with no redeeming qualities.

My HG foundation is UD All Nighter so I already had low expectations of this product - and I was not disappointed. Despite being highly pigmented, it performed poorly. I use a Sigma flat top Kabuki brush to apply my foundation. This is so runny and covers nothing. I would compare this to a tinted moisturizer. After an hour my face was a shiny mess and I do not have oily skin. I used Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer and this still ran right off my face. The pump is nice but why no cap? The only good thing I can say about this is that it was cheap.

I was so excited to try this product after Wayne Goss recommended it. I have both pink and yellow undertones and can usually either wear NW20 or NC20 in MAC. I hopped on eBay and found 1.2N for a reasonable price (more than you would usually pay, but not outrageous). I received it quickly and tried it on the next day with The Ordinary primer. My daughter also tried it with the Pores No More primer. I am 46 and have dry skin and my daughter is 23 and has oily skin. For both of us, it went on beautifully. We used the MAC 196 foundation brush. It gave full coverage and left a soft finish. We each topped it with a light dusting of powder, I used MAC prep and prime transparent loose powder and she used MAC Studio Fix Powder. For me throughout the day, it became more yellow. By the end of the day, it was really yellow and I looked like I used the color banana on my face. In addition, it didn't hold up. Even with my dry skin, it faded on my chin, nose, and cheeks enough that it was obvious. For my daughter, within an hour, it oxidized the other way and became really orange, which was crazy because it has yellow undertones, and separated on her nose, chin, and cheeks so that it looked like she was two completely different colors and the makeup was floating on top. She immediately took it off and went back to her MAC. I was so disappointed in this product.
Are you sure this product is discontinued?
