Product Details

Snap it up while you can; The Ordinary Coverage Foundation is the sell-out product that every beauty buff wants to get their hands on.

This cult-favourite, full-coverage foundation allows you to put your best face forward, no matter how fatigued you may be. Think your real skin, but better, as the lightweight formula provides a natural, semi-matte finish that never creases, cakes or settles into fine lines.

Specially designed with a unique blend of colour pigments, all of which are suspended in The Ordinary's proprietary 'spreadability system', the foundation seamlessly blends over skin, leaving imperfections blurred and skin smoothed. Better still, an added dose of SPF 15 further protects skin from sun exposure and environmental aggressors.

Suitable for all skin types and tones, the foundation arrives in 21 shades that range from fair to deep, whilst an undertone guide allows you to truly identify your perfect match – 'P' stands for pink undertones, 'R' for red, 'N' for neutral and 'Y' for yellow.

Wearing all day long, and boasting a super-affordable price tag, it's no wonder that this cute bottle of face makeup is so sought-after.

Product Features

The Ordinary Coverage Foundation is great for those with combination, dry and mature skin, looking for full and buildable coverage and aiming to get a matte and natural finish.

This The Ordinary face makeup contains coconut oil which helps to keep skin hydrated.

The Ordinary says

"Our Coverage Foundation is a full-coverage formulation available in a comprehensive shade range across 21 shades. These foundations contain higher pigment levels than our Serum Foundations but still offer a smooth finish that avoids the heavy makeup look."

How To Use

  1. Apply 1-2 pumps of the foundation to face
  2. Using your fingertips, a beauty sponge or buffing brush, blend the foundation outwards and into skin
