I've heard this foundation is very good and it's v reasonably priced. Has anyone used it? Any feedback? Also, I am a warm skin tone with olive skin. Would I need the one with yellow tones or red tones? I am confused!
The yellows are very very yellow be warned. I used the Wayne Goss vlog to choose my colour and got it spectacularly wrong. It's problem best going for a shade in neutral if they do that. Coverage was fine though. I bought 2 colours and both are unused.
I bought the serum and coverage ones as they were so cheap. I have very oily t-zone and variable cheeks. The coverage one was like a mask on me, could not get it to blend nicely at all and it sat horribly around my eyes. The serum one felt nicer but needed a lot of work to blend, settled a bit in pores and looked pretty rubbish after a few hours. I'm not sure if I could have made it work by trying different primers and setting powders but it wasn't that great to start with.
Completely underwhelmed, made worse by three months of chasing to receive my order* Oxodised no matter which of their primers I used.
* The Ordinary customer service is terrible, I've had two orders and both have been months late on delivery... I rate their skincare but dealing with them gives me more wrinkles.somewhat defeats the purpose
Not exactly rave reviews here! I read that it had a huge waiting list at one point, which made me think it must be good ( I am just a marketers dream basically!) Queen, they sell some through Asos if you want to avoid Ordinary customer service? Thanks to you all for reviews!
