Review: The Ordinary Serum Foundation


I have finally gotten my hands on The Ordinary Serum Foundation and thought I'd do a quick review and comparison with the Coverage Foundation.



In a nutshell, the Serum Foundation is a lightweight formula compared to the Coverage Foundation (click here to read a full review of the Coverage Foundation). It is also runnier, and has less coverage.

I love that the Serum Foundation is also packaged in a translucent plastic bottle with a pump dispenser like the Coverage Foundation, as it makes it so easy to use and is extremely travel friendly (the dispenser also locks so it does not dispense product).

The Serum Foundation is also fragrance free and is easy to spread and apply. It dries to a semi-matte finish.

In terms of oil control, I feel like the Coverage Foundation is better than the Serum Foundation. I find I have to blot a bit more (but that might also be because I do have to mix foundations/pack on concealer as my skin has gone absolutely nuts).

I use the shade 2.0N for both and find that they are more or less the same colour/shade. For reference, I am normally a light-medium in foundations (NC20-25 in Mac foundations).

The Ordinary Serum Foundation

Out of the two, I much prefer The Coverage Foundation, mainly because it provides me with the coverage that I need to cover blemishes. The Serum Foundation would be perfect for those who want a touch more coverage than a tinted moisturiser. It definitely is good enough to even out the skin tone, and does look really natural on if you already have fairly good skin. 

Summary
Texture:★★★★★
Coverage:★★☆☆☆
Longevity:★★★★
Oil Control:★★★
Fragrance:NIL
Application:★★★★★
Packaging:★★★★★
Overall:B+
