Hi Jen, can you review The Ordinary primers?

Roberta M. A. says:

Oh, God. I need another foundation

NessMonsta says:

I LOVE the ordinary’s products. I have a bunch of their skincare products too – their serums are great!

I also love to mix the coverage and serum foundations together to get a nice glowy look, but with a little bit more coverage. 🙂

Aly O says:

Where can you buy it from?

injoyHappyness says:

It’s 10.90 and shipping is 38 am I seeing things wrong?!

Winnie Star says:

Can you provide more shade reference? i.e. What’s your shade in armani luminous silk, makeup forever HD foundation etc. Thanks in advance!

Stephanie K says:

Hi Jen! I have a question, does the YG actually have noticeable gold highlights? I’m already a somewhat oily person so I would prefer to not look extra shiny/sparkly. Thanks! Say hi to Aria for me 🙂

pixiwoo says:

I swear by it too..it’s very beautiful and not cake you can bu I ld it or just one layer is perfect….what an excellent product

Tiffany Lin says:

If you’re not using the 2.1Y I will gladly take it off your hands 😛

OneHappyCraftyChick says:

I don’t see the link for it?

AKoth Enterprise says:

The Koh gen do is so expensive, but at least their lightest shade is light enough

Gavriella11 says:

reduce the lighting a little bit plz next time? >-<

Maggie Lee says:

Do you use a brush or a Beauty Blender to apply The Original foundation?

Milica P says:

Love this review, but was sad too see there was no actual application to the face. You should definitely make a tutorial using this foundation

Nita Nika says:

Lol. You’re so funny, “..in conclusion…” just like in high school writing an English essay! Is there any way to find out what shade I am? I think I am in between a Mac NC 30 and 35?

Calida says:

Ohhhhh I need to find this!

maria remedios tomas says:

Yes the coverage version please!

Marie says:

love the review, only wish you had put a close up demo!

Jennifer Holloway says:

I can’t figure out why they call it the serum foundation b/c I didn’t see there was any serum benefits listed on their site

Sharon Nam says:

Thanks for the review. Can’t wait to try this! Where can I purchase it? Looked for the link to this product in the description box but I don’t see it. Thanks!

Connie Wong says:

Such a cute setup background! And outfit omg

Ana Niegas says:

It’s $15 when I clicked the link above T_T

Lauren Chen says:

Review all the skincare products please!!!!

Helena Kopet says:

Thanks for doing this review! How do you apply it (beauty blender, brush, fingertips)? How does it sit on oily/combo acne prone skin? 🙂

Alice Lim says:

Where is your necklace from? It’s so cute

Cocolocomococrazy says:

Does anyone know what skin type Jen has?

Amber Quinata says:

They need free shipping

Susan Earp says:

Ordering it now! I’ve been loving all the other The Ordinary products I’ve been trying! I have acne-prone oily skin too, so I’d love to know which products you’re liking

Grace Oo says:

I’m so early!!! Thumbs up before watching tho as per usual heheh hi Jen!!

Bimka says:

Please review all from the ordinary! Thank you!

Lani Jade says:

Can you do a video on your favorite foundations? Thanks

TVXQluff says:

looking forward to the coverage review as well!

cha4onda says:

My shade is out of stock, but i’m sold and will try and buy it when it comes back. Also, interested in the other reviews for the ordinary skincare.

donut says:

Why is it USD$6.90 for u but USD$10.90 for me? Why do they price it differently for different countries when I’m still going to have to pay for shipping.

Caroline Pinchon says:

I love this foundation! The serum is my favorite and I also own the coverage. I have the same skin tone as you and have 2.0 YG and 2.1Y.

May Batista says:

Hi Jen! I adore you, you’re one of my favorite youtube beauty experts! You’re so beautiful inside and out! You look amaaaazing! I just wish you showed som more swatches of the lighter and darker colors. Maybe you can do it on the coverage foundation review! Please do a review of The Ordinary’s skincare line. I’m in disbelief how similar the foundation was to your high end ones. Wishing you the best for you and your family! Xoxo May
