The Ordinary Coverage Foundation | Review

The Ordinary Coverage Foundation, 2.0N, $6.90

Again, I am back with another Deciem product! They released this foundation last year and it got extremely popular so quickly that it was sold out and backordered for months!  I understand why as this guy has been a major contender against high end formulas. Which is crazy if you look at the price tag of $6.90. I mean…this is cheaper than a lot of drugstore options. I got my hands on one this fall and here is my honest review. With 21 shades with multiple undertones to chose from, The Ordinary makes it easy to find your shade.


I use 2-3 drops on my beauty blender and gently dab this into my skin. I carefully make sure to blend into my jawline/ears/upper neck. This color is currently too dark for me so I make sure their is no line of demarkation. The finish is semi-matte which as you know I have to set. Now this is a full-coverage foundation so just one application is enough. This looks great if you are looking for a flawless complexion for a special event or if your like me and just love high coverage foundations.


This 1 fl. oz. is in a thick plastic pump bottle. It is quite small but for $6.90 you can’t really complain. The matte black pump does get dirty similarly to NARS cosmetic packaging.


This oil-free formula has a similar feel to The Ordinary’s Serum Foundation, but contains higher pigment levels for a full-coverage look. This foundation does contain a SPF 15 which is great in addition to your daytime moisturizer. The formula is not cakey or heavy and covers large pores and any hyperpigmentation. I do enjoy the blendability of this product and will definitely keep on hand as one of my top foundations for daily use. *Make sure to lightly shake the formula before use.

What is your favorite foundation at the moment? Do you splurge on your base or use drugstore alternatives?

    1. I got 2.0N and it was too dark. For you, I would say 1.1N or 1.2N. Most likely 1.2N. The N is for neutral so you could also choose Y(yellow) or P (pink) if you prefer. If I were you, I would order a couple shades to try out or mix them together to find your perfect match! LMK what you think of it, I am excited to hear!
