Back when I purchased The Ordinary Serum Foundation I also picked up a few other products from the brand. One of those products is The Ordinary High-Adherence Silicone Primer. I always seem to run out of primer at the worst possible time. I thought it would be nice to have a different one to use as backup. That’s really the only reason I purchased it.

The Ordinary High-Adherence Silicone Primer is described as a mattifying and blurring primer with advanced adaptive silicones which help makeup adhere to the skin. It claims to blur imperfections, help makeup last longer, all while leaving your skin with a matte finish.

I didn’t detect much of a scent. It was in fact non-greasy. I had read that another blogger had great results when she pat the primer into her skin. Ever since that’s how I’ve been applying my primer. I’ve never experienced any issues using this method of application. The primer evened out my skin nicely and my makeup applied beautifully. I actually really love the way my makeup looks when I use this primer. I think it does a pretty great job at evening out my skin for a more airbrushed effect. Now that I’m working I can say that it holds up pretty well for a typical work day. By the time I get home my makeup is still going strong.

Overall, I’d have to say this primer is a keeper! I really only purchased it to have on hand in case I ran out of my go-to primers. I didn’t expect to love it so much that I’d add it to my rotation. As for the other products I purchased? I wasn’t really a fan. Truth be told I wasn’t exactly sold on this primer at fist either. Thankfully I really got the chance to put it to the test once I started working. And now it’s one of my favorite primers.

  1. This sounds really lovely and how interesting that patting it onto the skin works best.

    • If I remember correctly the blogger mentioned pilling when rubbing it into the skin. So I just went with the patting method and it worked beautifully.

  2. I’ve never paid attention to this primer because of the word “silicone” in the name. I thought it would be a clear gel like the Smashbox primer, which I don’t love. I’m surprised that it’s a white gel cream consistency. For such a low price and good performance, I’m now going to give this a try. The Ordinary is based out of Toronto so I can actually hop over to a physical store to pick this up!

  4. I really like this primer but it dries up quickly within the tube and I don’t know why as tube primers never normally have an issue xx

  5. You have such great skin and this primer sounds like a delight! :)

    • Thank you! I’m actually hiding quite a bit of redness under that makeup though lol. The primer really is great! :)

  6. I have yet to find a primer that I like but this one deff sounds affordable and interesting. I have heard lots of good things about this brand as well so makes me want to try it even more.

    • For the price it really can’t hurt to try it out. I actually purchased quite a bit of their products because they were so reasonably priced. Some worked out some didn’t. This primer was definitely one of the winners of the bunch.

  7. Thissounds really good primer given your experience… Whole day at work and makeup gane still strong, I’m sold… I’ll check if I can find it here in Netherlands…

  8. I totally want to give this a try :)
