The Ordinary serum foundation
The Ordinary serum foundation
I love The Ordinary for their no-nonsense formulations and unbeatable prices. I had held off on trying their foundations for a while because I wasn’t sure I’d be able to get the right shade just by looking at swatches online, but when I was able to visit their store in Toronto a few months back, I picked up one of their serum foundations. Overall, I think it’s a great formula for the price. This is the lighter of the two coverage options, but it covered more than I anticipated. I was also pleasantly surprised that this did not break me out—it contains some coconut derivatives that evidently don’t agree with everyone’s skin, and I’m acne prone. But nope, I did not notice this affecting my acne at all, and it covered like a dream while giving me a natural, skin-like finish. Sadly, even though I bought it in person, the color ended up oxidizing on me and thus looking too dark. This could be remedied by just buying a lighter shade, but it was still disappointing. I also found that it tended to cake slightly around my mouth by the end of the day. I’ve put this product aside for now, as my skin has been doing well and I don’t need this much coverage anyway. Overall, I think this is a good pick for the very low price (around $6!). Be warned that you may need to get a lighter shade than normal due to oxidation, though. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a light to medium-coverage foundation on a budget.

Good budget foundation under $10 but not for me

When this product first went on I was so amazed and impressed at how gorgeous it blended on my skin and did not feel gross. But once I’d finished my makeup and set it with powder (I live in a tropical climate) it was starting to kind of magnify my pores? For context I have genetically massive pores. Unfortunate, but I keep them as clean as possible and it is what it is. By the end of the indoor/outdoor function I went to (2.5 hours later) I looked like a hot mess (see last pic of me. Yikes.). It also doesn’t do much to cover redness and I had some flaky spots but that could also be my powder who knows. Maybe this is for you if you already have minimal redness, acne, and small pores? I will say it did not irritate my eczema at all (yay). Overall I would not personally buy this product again and only recommend it to people with minimal skin issues. The Ordinary - Colour.

✨ FLAWESS FOUNDATION UNDER $7 ?? ✨

I think by now we’ve all fallen hard and fast for The Ordinary products. I was already hooked on buying skincare products from Deciem so when I saw they had a foundation I had to pick it up and it has been my go to ever since 😍 💪🏼 |PERFORMANCE| This water based foundation glides evenly and smoothly over skin. It gives great coverage, and effectively covers my redness and hyperpigmentation! I like the final look that is more of a matte finish. My skin can get oily, so I typically use a setting powder and powder contour to finish off. 🤲🏻 |TEXTURE| the texture is thinner then most foundations I’ve used in the past but by no means runny. Personally I think it’s a really nice consistency. Their website describes it as a lightweight, non-oily cream 🌿 👃🏻|SCENT| This product doesn’t really give off anything other then like regular makeup smell ? Haha 💦 |INGREDIENTS| I feel like their aren’t any super notable or beneficial ingredients in these formulas ( other then having SPF of course which is always a bonus) but there also aren’t any ingredients that are going to cause harm to your skin 💛 💸 |VALUE| for $6.90 to me this foundation is a no brainer, it’s great value, and works like a charm. I think it’s nice to have something so affordable especially when the seasons are changing and your skin tone might be adjusting for the season, there’s nothing worse then buying an expensive new foundation that doesn’t match you skin a couple weeks later. The Ordinary - Colours Coverage Foundation with SPF 15 I’m looking forward to trying the The Ordinary - Colour. Serum Foundation next!

One of my first foundations ive ever bought has been the NARS natural long wear radiant foundation. One day, while shopping for the ordinary, i saw on their website that they have a serum foundation! i bought it, because it was only a few dollars, and let's just say i was missing out! Here im going to list out the pros and the cons of each foundation! The Ordinary - Colour. Serum Foundation Pros ✅ •Very lightweight and buildable •Can work in just about ANY makeup look •Smoothly blends right in to my skin •You can't even tell im wearing foundation •Price is incredibly cheap!! Cons ❌ •Not enough darker colors •Some people say it dries their skin, I don't really notice it though NARS - Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation Pros ✅ •Gets the job done •Is somewhat more shade inclusive Cons ❌ •EXTREMELY cakey •Very drying to my dry skin •50 dollars? way too expensive for this! The ordinary has done it again! A low price point product that works REALLY well. As for NARS, I expected better out of you! Price tags don't determine the quality of a product! ps: the only reason the ordinary didn't get 5 stars is because they aren't very color inclusive

• My Skin: I have a medium-olive skintone, with green undertones. I have combination skin- an oily nose and chin, with dry cheeks and eye area. I also have sensitive skin, so I avoid added fragrance and essential oils. I am prone to breakouts. • Foundation Goals: I love a sheer foundation that feels more like a moisturizer or sunscreen- I hate the heaviness of traditional foundations. Lightweight is a must, with either a satin finish or semi-dewy. • The Foundations: Both are cruelty-free and vegan, contain silicones, and offer little by way of skincare boosts. Glossier. - Perfecting Skin Tint had been my favourite foundation for a long time. Glossier isn’t high-end or drugstore, charging a reasonable $26 USD for 30mL. It takes only a few droplets to apply a thin wash of this lightweight serum-like foundation, the silky formula easily layered in areas where my PIH is darker. This is a very thin, light formula that doesn’t clog pores, doesn’t emphasize fine lines, evens skin without flattening my complexion, and is easy to remove... but I do find I can’t use it frequently or else the alcohol aggravates my skin a bit. So I went hunting for another foundation... The Ordinary - Colour. Serum Foundation was gifted to me by the Ordinary and I am a huge fan! Offering drugstore prices online and in Ulta, it’s $6.70 USD per 30mL, an absolute steal considering it’s free of alcohol, fragrance, and essential oils. Perfect for sensitive skin! Thin and slick, this light foundation is highly pigmented so only a couple drops are needed- layer as desired! I love how just a tiny bit offers very natural and comfortable medium coverage, like a second skin. It doesn’t settle into fine lines, doesn’t break me out, and makes my skin feel delightfully soft to the touch. The finish is radiant without shine, a healthy glow that isn’t dewy but makes my skin look like I’ve moisturized and wore sunscreen since the day I was born. There isn’t a drawback thus far, other than the shade range which is unfortunately not very inclusive. #CheriePartner

LOOK GOOD ON A ZOOM CALL
LOOK GOOD ON A ZOOM CALL
People always say doing your makeup in your bathroom, then stepping out into natural lighting can be jarring. But have you ever done your makeup and joined on a Zoom call? Thank God for being able to turn off video while on a call. Things I did exclusively for this video: 1. Bolder brows: For Zoom, I want my brows to be a little bit more amped up so I make the tail a wee bit darker with #LA Splash - Ultra Defined Brows[products]#[FourStars] . This brow pomade is great because it also has small hairlike fibers to build up the brows. 2. Targeted powder: I have oily skin so I used set my face regardless, but for Zoom calls, I know I won’t be able to blot my face like I would normally try to. I used the LAURA GELLER - Baked Balance-n-Brighten for my under eyes as the only highlighter and placed SEPHORA COLLECTION - MicroSmooth Baked Foundation Face Powder in over the B3 to tamper down the brightness. 3. My skin, but better: I don’t want to look uber cakey so I use the The Ordinary - Colour. Serum Foundation with theL.A. Girl - PRO.color Foundation Mixing Pigment to bring down the warmth of the foundation. The foundation is a thinner formula so it doesn’t look overwhelming. 4. Check thyself before thy wreck thyself: Before the meeting, check the lighting, how you look on the video call and adjust whatever you want. #CheriePartner
