The variety of shades alone makes this a great option. Never mind the fabulous price. And awesome coverage. It plays well with other mixers such as natural sunblocks or mineral highlighters. My...

Wowza. I'm 52, and ELDW is my HG foundation. I prefer a medium coverage foundation that I can build up in spots and it's gotta wear all day. ELDW does that for me. But I like to have a drugstore...

I quite like this foundation, and find the coverage to be medium to full depending how much you build up and how you apply it. One absolute positive for me is that 1.2YG is the perfect match to my...

I really wanted to like this foundation, because 2.0YG is the perfect yellow shade for me. I struggle finding foundation formulas that work on my skin type (40 y/o, combo skin type with...

EXCELLENT FOUNDATION! I have bought the 1.2P (pink tones) and 1.2N (neutral/warm), both in serum and full coverage and love, love them! I have so many foundations (expensive and cheap) but this...

I love The Ordinary line of skincare. With that said, this company should stick to skincare and not makeup. This foundation is HORRID! Not only does it not apply well (tried it with fingers,...

I have such a love-hate relationship with this product, I wanted it to be my new HG foundation but unfortunately the cons outweighed the pros. Pros: - Great packaging, feels professional and the...

I love The Ordinary skincare line...it has given me so many of my favorite products. This one, however, is a monumental disappointment as it contains silicones and copolymers that trap sebum,...

I bought this foundation as an interim until the Shiseido foundation shade I wanted was available again. I quickly searched in Google “full-coverage foundation” and this was one of the first...

I'm a total full coverage fanatic, and have worn KVD Lock It for years. I have many foundations from which to choose, and I've been reaching for this since I got it. Over a Silk Canvas dupe ... I...

**UPDATE: I don't wear this foundation at all any more. I do keep a bottle of 3.0Y to use teensy drops as a liquid bronzer. Will never rebuy again. Pros: - EXTREMELY gentle on the skin, even...

This is by far the worst foundation I’ve ever used. I used the lightest neutral shade there is and my god was it awful. I applied the foundation and it had ok coverage it was probably a medium...

I read all the reviews and was excited about this product, I ordered 1.2N and when it came I have to say that it was a fantastic colour match for my skin, I used my porefessional primer and put on...

The consistency is lovely, not heavy or watery. I have combination skin and it worked well, skin didn't look shiny until a few hours later. It's described as semi -matte, which I would agree. I...

I guess that the problem with this product is the misleading name. You think it is something like EL Double Wear, something longlasting, mattifying and with lots of coverage. Instead I would...

Right after application it looks surprisingly good, but it doesn't last. It enhances any dry skin by being absorbed of the dry patches. The top of the bottle gets stained after the first pump...
