The Ordinary Colours Foundation Swatches – Launch Information

30 Mar 2017

UPDATE – JUST LAUNCHED HERE!

Before I start, you should know that even though both these foundations are under £6 each, they are such hot property that some of the samples have been stolen from the Deciem Spitalfields store! This is pretty funny apart from the fact that it means I am missing a couple of shades in my swatch library, but hey, what can you do? This product is super scarce right now – there are no samples or stock in the UK at all, apart from the testers and the two foundations I have here in my shade! I am SO excited!!!

I have The Ordinary Colours Coverage Foundation and the Serum Foundation in shade 1.2N and I’ll have before and after photos to share with you in an upcoming post.

But first, swatches!!

The Ordinary Colours Foundation Swatches

As I said, there are a couple of gaps, but I have the majority of shades here for you to check out. Just so you know, the shades are pretty much identical across the two different formulations.

Key:

  • N = neutral tone
  • P = pink tone
  • Y = yellow tone
  • R = red tone
  • NS = neutral silver
  • YG = yellow gold

I literally can’t wait to share before and after photos of both the foundations with you. I thought I was going to prefer the Serum Foundation but I think maybe it’s the Coverage foundation I like! You can make up your own mind when I show you them both.

Also, a note about the packaging. There have been a few changes and it seems that it has now been decided that the Coverage Foundation will come with a pump included (this was previously going to be available separately).  I haven’t seen the pumps yet.

The Serum Foundation SPF 15 (£5.70 30ml) has been developed to be a natural-looking medium coverage foundation with a very lightweight serum texture. It will come with a screw cap and an optional dropper dispenser will be available to purchase for 30 pence.

The Coverage Foundation SPF 15 (£5.90 30ml) is a rich in pigment, non-oily cream textured foundation that offers a high coverage yet natural finish that never appears heavy on the skin. This is the one that comes with a pump.

I hope you found The Ordinary Colours Foundation swatches useful. As most of you will be purchasing online, I think it should help. The foundations are available to order HERE now!

  1. The yellow shades actually look yellow! That’s rare for a budget foundation! I’m really interested to try this out when they come back in stock. Thanks for the helpful swatches!

  2. I (pre) ordered one of each the other night on Victoria Health, I went for shade 1.2N, looking at your swatches I think I have picked the right shade – hopefully. I was going to wait for your swatches but…. well I couldn’t wait! 🙂

  3. I would love to know how different of YG and Y. Does YG has something different from Y? i’m pretty confused right now but your review helps me alot ! Thanks for this amazine review. Can’t wait to order them soon.❤️

  4. Hello ! I’m around nc 25-30. Could you please give me any suggestion what shade i should go for ? I can’t find any review on this product and i have to order this online so it’s very hard for me to find the right shade. Thanks for this amazing review !! Love it.

  5. Hi, I see you have watched shade 1.1YG? I can’t seem to find this shade anywhere on the website for some reason? Did you mean to right 1.2YG?

  6. Hi, just curious…you have 1.1Y and 1.1YG swatches but according to the Deciem site they don’t have Y shades for 1.1. Are your swatches actually 1.2Y/ 1.2YG by any chance?

    1. G if got Gold – as in a gold highlight.

      I did the swatches with the PR team so are correct as far as I can be aware x

  7. Thank you for the comprehensive shade swatch! Couldn’t find this anywhere else. Very helpful in ordering foundations online.

  8. Thank you so much for posting this information – very helpful & I am excited to try the foundation and skin care!

  9. Hi im loving the info you provided. Im looking at the very fair colours, need to order online living in Australia- im super fair, freckles red hair. Im just wondering if you could shed light on what the silver is for in the very fair N.S. ? I cant seem to find information anywhere x

    1. The silver and the gold are highlights – so extra glow. I haven’t tried them on my skin though so I can’t personally vouch for that xx
