The Ordinary Serum Foundation

During the start of Lockdown 3, I ran out of my foundation. I was using the NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation for the last few years and absolutely loved it, however did want to try something else. Ordinarily a quick nip to the shops could avoid any disasters, however that option was not available and I didn't want to spend a lot of money on a shade that I wasn't 100% sure on. This led me to The Ordinary Serum Foundation which I thought I would review for you all. 

The Ordinary Serum Foundation  (£5.50/30ml) is affordable and amazing value for money, retailing at £5.50 for 30ml. What is surprising is how great the product looks in it's packaging, it doesn't feel like a foundation under £6, it looks as great as The Ordinary Skincare, designed to be used effectively and efficiently.  

A 'serum' foundation is the best term to describe this foundation, it has a watery, blend-able consistency that sinks into the skin rather than on top of the skin, like skincare. With a solid medium coverage too, this foundation actually leaves the skin looking like skin, which is honestly really great to see. It evens out the complexion effectively the way foundations are designed to do. Once you apply the rest of your makeup, you honestly cannot even tell you are wearing a foundation that costs under £6. This foundation lasts the test of time too, still looking great on my skin over 12 hours later which is hard to find with even luxury foundations! 

I have been pleasantly surprised by this foundation, initially I bought it to use whilst in lockdown, however I think a lot of people would be happy with the quality and value of this foundation, it's just the right amount of everything, not too high in coverage, not too matte nor too dewy, not too expensive and not too heavy on the skin. I think this is a great foundation for everyone especially as we are now used to wearing less, and I think this foundation really covers all the bases whilst still making me look like myself. 

Have you tried this foundation? If so, what did you think? Comment below to let me know!
