Alas, The Ordinary Colours Coverage Foundation has landed in my hands! I have waited long enough and then not long after, I received a sample as well. If you missed out on reading my review on the serum foundation, I have a link at the end of this blog post if you would like to check that one out too! Continue reading to learn more.

*Coverage Foundation 2.0 YG Light medium 30ml AU$12.90
This coverage foundation is described as rich in pigment with an non-oily creamy texture, as it offers a natural finish that never appears heavy on the skin. I tested this foundation for a solid week to see how it held on my skin.
To my surprise, it held up pretty well. It did give a good light to medium coverage that was buildable, however, felt that it wasn’t completely full coverage. Compared with the serum foundation, this gave more of a natural and comfortable matte finish. My skin felt hydrated as the day went on and I found that it didn’t hug or cake up obvious dry skin patches. It was easy to apply and blend when using a foundation makeup brush, as it didn’t leave any streaks or lines.
The shade 2.0 YG light medium is a tinge lighter for my skin, however could mixed shade 2.1 Y to get a closer colour match to my natural skin tone. The bottle is made from a light plastic that comes with a pump dispenser, a very cool and simple design.
Overall, I really enjoyed using this coverage foundation as it settled well into my skin. I think I may actually now prefer this over the serum foundation. It was a close call as both formulations were great, but I would most preferably gravitate towards a matte finish over a dewy one. Just like the serum foundation, this is also available in 21 shades and is divided into 9 various depths with skin complexions ranging from cool, neutral and warm tones.
