Not really suit for oily skin
Skin Type: oily Skin
Skin Concerns: Acne, Blackheads, Fungal Acne (Malassezia), Large Pores, Dehydrated Skin, Whiteheads/Closed Comedones

the coverage effect is good...
able to cover the redness and some dark spots...
feel matte right after application...
but after few hours of application, the face will become very oily...
if you need a high coverage foundation like this, suggest to use it together with loose powder in order to reduce the oiliness after few hours of application...

Awesome shade range, terrible coverage, patchy
Skin Type: combination Skin
Skin Concerns: Acne, Rosacea, Sensitive Skin, Uneven Skin Tone, Whiteheads/Closed Comedones

I really wanted to like this foundation. After all, it comes in a ton of shades, and it's inexpensive. I found a great shade match for my skin, but after wearing it for several hours, I noticed that the foundation became extremely patchy, and the coverage seemed to have melted from medium to barely-there. If you don't want or need a full coverage/medium coverage foundation, this might be great for you! Alternatively, if you have dry skin, this might work really well, as it's a very hydrating and dewy foundation. I didn't experience any breakouts from this, but it didn't provide the coverage I want, so unfortunately, I had to stop using it.

quite bad
Skin Type: combination Skin
Skin Concerns: Anti-Aging (Fine lines & Wrinkles), Blackheads, Large Pores, Sensitive Skin, Dehydrated Skin

This was my first major disappointment with a product from The Ordinary, but I guess you can't be good at everything. This foundation really was the worst and I can't say anything redeeming about it except it didn't affect my skin, thank heavens. But as foundations go, the formula was weird, almost like water with pigment. The foundation just sat on my face and the pigment was sort of powdery and settled into my pores, creating these dots. It didn't even look good in the initial application and I tried various ways to make it work: I shook the bottle (as you're supposed to, anyway), I applied it with fingers and with a sponge. I know it's cheap, but I wouldn't waste my money as I don't see how this would work for anyone.
