The Ordinary Brand has some great products but none have attracted my attention as much as the primers have.
The Ordinary’s High-Adherence Silicone Primer and The High-Spreadability Fluid Primer have been raved by makeup gurus like Wayne Goss! So naturally they were something I had to try for myself!
Let the battle begin!
The Ordinary’s High-Adherence Silicone Primer |
Rating: 4.5 / 5
Packaging: Simple. It comes in a no-fuss tubular packaging which is both practical and hygienic.
Texture: Smooth. The primer is thick and smooth, it melts perfectly into your skin once spread out.
Performance: Great. This primer hides all of my massive pores! It leaves my skin looking powerless, smooth and keeps my makeup on all day!
Formula: Moisturising. I was pretty surprised when I found how super moisturising this primer was! It was like I had applied moisturiser rather than primer.
Price: Affordable. This primer retails of $8.80 AUD, just $8.80!!
Suitable for: People with oily skin and/or large pores. This formula keeps your skin matte and fills out all of your pores. A little goes a long way!
The Ordinary’s High-Spreadability Fluid Primer |
Packaging: Practical. This primer comes in a bottle with a pump, making it super easy to use. It’s a little more liquidy than the High-Adherence Silicon Primer.
Texture: Smooth. The texture of this primer is so so smooth! Once spread out it leaves the skin feeling baby soft. The texture reminds me of the Maybelline’s Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser Primer.
Performance: Good. Like the High-Adherence Silicon Primer this keeps your makeup on all day and smooths your skin over. This primer also fills in fine lines and dry patches leaving a overall even complexion.
Formula: Oily. The formula feels a little oiler than the High Adherence Primer however it’s not all uncomfortable.
Price: Affordable. For $13.90 AUD this is a super affordable primer!
Suitable for: Mature skin and/or dry skin.
Overall, I love both primers but I’m reaching for my High-Adherence Silicone Primer more often than the High-Spreadability Fluid Primer. This is mostly as I have oily skin and large pores and so the Silicon Primer just works better for my skin.
Be sure to try them out!
Until next time,
