The $6 Foundation That's Selling Out Everywhere
It may be called Ordinary Cosmetics, but it's truly anything but ordinary.
A foundation that is $6 might sound too good to be true. But in the case of The Ordinary, their serum foundation is anything but ordinary – and it’s mind-boggling to me that it’s only six bucks!
With a proprietary spreadability formula, the serum-like foundation is just enough coverage to make you feel put together, with all of the lightweight and blendable goodness of a skincare regimen. It truly feels like serum when it’s applied. What I particularly noticed was the lovely way it absorbed into my skin. Despite many cosmetics brands claiming certain products feel like a second skin, I mean, this really takes on the look and feel of a second skin.
The Ordinary serum foundation is available in 21 different shades. Although it’s only available online at this point, their swatch system is extremely helpful in identifying what is the correct shade for your skintone.
Their website also explains that the foundation is,
“So natural on skin that three shades or more will suit most skin tones.”
There are even a few different shades – the shades ending in “S” for silver, or “G” for gold – that provide an additional highlighting element in your foundation coverage.
