Let’s Test!: The Ordinary High-Adherence Silicone Primer

The brand “The Ordinary” has been a hot topic in the online beauty community as of late so I figured it was about time for me to review one of their more hyped products: their silicone primer! It’s ULTRA cheap but, more importantly, does it work!? (ू˃̣̣̣̣̣̣︿˂̣̣̣̣̣̣ ू)

Alison Self says:

I appreciate you addressing the flaw in the PAWS system. However, I saw you mentioned the problem with P, but I think S needs tweaking also. I have seen you drop the S on some products that don’t have a shade range, but on this product you gave it a 5/5 on shade range when shade range isn’t applicable. Therefore it skewed the overall score of the primer making a one of your highest scoring product simply because it (like most primers) doesn’t have a shade.

Ryssa Chrysalis says:

No Cassie! Don’t give FIg any ideas! Next thing you know, he’ll try to race out to catch a squirrel or a bunny and then not know what to do with it? We have the world’s greatest bunny hunter (Wootz) but he doesn’t know what to do with them once he catches them. Instead he brings them into the house to play with them (and show them off).

But I digress. I liked seeing what this primer does on oily skin. The Ordinary makes two primers and I wouldn’t mind seeing how the other one does on your oily skin or even seeing what happens when you use your regular primer on one side of your face and the test on the other side. Or going no primer at all and the test primer on one side.

But thank you for another video! I really enjoy watching you. I hope you enjoyed that yummy piece of chocolate cake! Om nom nom nom!

Jenn Newball says:

Cassie! Do you think this would be good for sensitive skin?

Corrie- Onagoodday says:

Whaa I was so hoping you would answer my question a few videos back. Corrie

Erica Freeman says:

What is the primer you like that you normally use?

purrsandwhispers says:

Great video. Your cats are gorgeous!!!!!

mariem1680 says:

Nice job! I think this is a great budget friendly choice. I would like to see more affordable options. I thought your makeup looked really nice with this primer! Thanks for the video!!!

kimisilv says:

I promise, their packaging is amazing! It’s so extraordinary (borders luxe). I felt like a special person opening my order.

Kathy Dowdle says:

I bought the Ordinary High Spreadability Primer, and I LOVE it!

walkbyfaithnlt says:

“Its a nice squeezy tube” Bahahahaaa I just love you!

vc 89 says:

I received my primer and makeup this past Thursday and I am sold and very much in love with it! You should do a video on the foundation and serum!

birenn says:

literally in love go your personality

Arlene Ameerali says:

I absolutely love this primer.

Nienke de Rot says:

xox.o_ren_ishii says:

Thanks for the great review:) I really appreciate that you take the time to update the video with how your skin reacted to the product afterwards!

Melinda Ihnen says:

I hated this primer! I break out every time. Finally tossed it.

Nephelle S. says:

I legit get the song stuck in my head for like a week after watching the video

judith landingin says:

please do a review on wet n wilds unicorn makeup line!! I think it would be fun lol

Maggie says:

Cassie, you should test out the new Paula’s Choice Resist primer! I know you are a huge fan of PC like I am. I got a deluxe sample from them of the primer and I haven’t tried it yet.

Ana Calderón says:

So which is your favorite foundation and primer? Which products work best for you?

Betty Dunn says:

They also have a serum primer that I love. I am interested in seeing their two new foundations. Would love to see a review on those. The shade ranges aren’t great but for the price you could buy 2 and mix your own. Would love for you to do a review on those! You are gorgeous as always!

Panicked Antics says:

Actually, you should use this primer as your last step in your skin care routine, ie do not use a moisturizer underneath it. The outcome would have been dramatically different. Also, a silicone based foundation paired with it works best. It is the only primer I have been using for over a month. You have to use this product correctly and wait until it completely dries before applying your foundation. Just wanted to throw this info out there in case someone isn’t going to purchase it because of this video. xoxo.

Cynthia Price says:

I’m glad you procrastinated long enough to be able to include the update footnote at the end, regarding cystic ickiness. I was making a mental note to make an electronic note to remind myself to go pick some up when it popped up, and I had to rewind a little to catch it all! Mental note allowed to wander off.

isluna says:

I was wondering why I wasn’t seeing your videos anymore and I realized they YT had unscubscribed me from your channel 🙁

Monica Berebichez says:

Happy Easter? Really? You waitedthis long to post this?……..

Sarah Beth SS says:

“I’m trying to remember if I like this foundation.”

Seriously? Why choose a foundation you don’t 100% know how it performs when testing a new primer?
