Saw a few people had been asking and mine arrived today. I ordered the coverage and serum ones, both in the palest cool shade which is 1.0p
The serum one hasn't arrived yet but the coverage one is now on my face grin
The colour is absolutely perfect, it's not a mega full coverage. Not entirely sure it would work on dry skin without a good primer so I'm interested to compare the serum one when it arrives
I took a photo if anyone wants to see the palest shade smile

Just got an email saying mine was being dispatched today - only the serum one, I'll have to wait for the fuller coverage version. I got it in shade 1.2Y - I'll report back when it's here. Stupidly excited (been waiting 6 weeks!) grin.

Olivander please could I see the shade you've chosen and also the name and shade of your normal foundation. I normally use Boots Super light Cool Vanilla.

I went for 1.0p (palest and cool tones)
Usually I'm the palest in any brand, Lancome teint idole I wear 008, mac about NW10/13

I went to the Spitafields shop yesterday. Like softkitty2 says, they are out of stock mostly (due back in stock in about a month) but they did have the serum foundation in the 3 palest shades if that helps anyone. I tried the tester serum foundation for my shade and it was a perfect match and also covered some old acne marks I have.

While I was there, I picked up some of the Ordinary serums and having lots of fun trying them out!

Ollivander thanks for posting the pictures.

I got the serum one this afternoon, also the lightest shade. Have only tested it on my hand and a bit on my cheek. Very light coverage and very runny but felt pleasant enough. Will try it properly tomorrow and report back.
