The Ordinary High-Spreadability Fluid Primer

The Ordinary High-Spreadability Fluid Primer

I'm sure by now you've all heard about The Ordinary; i was dying to get my hands on some of their products so whilst i was in a London the other week, i made a visit and picked up a few items that had been on my wishlist. I was actually intending to buy the The Ordinary High-Adherence Silicone Primer but they were out of stock, so i picked up The Ordinary High-Spreadability Fluid Primer instead.

The Ordinary High-Spreadability Fluid Primer

"This new generation of primer is a lightweight serum-like formula that increases the spreadability of subsequent complexion makeup to help avoid the unnatural and uneven accumulation of pigments especially around the eyes and on dry skin. The formula also acts as a light, non-oily surface hydrator for a natural dewy look."

I'll hold my hands up and say i didn't do very much research into this primer before i bought it; i had every intention of buying The Ordinary High-Adherence Silicone Primer but as that was sold out and I'd just seen an instagram (post or story?) from Hello, Terri Lowe saying that this was the best primer she'd ever bought, i just decided to pick it up and try it.

I like to apply this once I've finished my skincare routine and then allow it to settle into my skin for a few minutes before i move onto the rest of my make up and so far, I'm absolutely loving this primer. It has the nicest formula; it's so lightweight and smoothing, it does have that slight silicone feel to it but it's nothing like other silicone primers I've used, it's such a pleasure to apply to the skin.

When i first used this, i paired it with the Serum Foundation from The Ordinary and i was a bit unsure about it - i didn't know whether it was the foundation, the primer or just my skin that was issue but I've since tried it with other foundations and it works like a dream. It really smooths out the skin giving you the perfect base for the rest of your make up, it's almost like it has a blurring effect to it and I'm really loving using it.

The packaging is stunning, it has a frosted glass bottle that looks so sleek and luxurious, not to mention it applies with a pipette and we all know how much i love a good pipette applicator! The best part? It's only £5.50! I've tried high end primers that cost triple that, that don't even come close to the quality of this primer!

I'm still intrigued to try The Ordinary High-Adherence Silicone Primer at some point but I'm genuinely glad that it was sold out and i picked up this one instead because personally, i think this is one of the best primers I've ever tried and i couldn't recommend it enough.

Have you tried The Ordinary?

  1. I’ve never tried anything from this brand before but this sounds great and is so well priced too! Think I’ll have to try this! X


  2. I've never tried anything from these, but I've been eyeing up their foundation a while now. I might pop onto their site and have a nosey!

  3. I love The Ordinary so much. I'm using the Squalane oil in the morning. Just a couple of drops before moisturizer and it makes such a difference. Your foundation goes on so smooth afterward. The Retinolbis great too.
