The Ordinary concealer range is finally on sale in the UK: Shades, price and where to buy

20th December 2022 | Author: Victoria Woollaston-Webber

UPDATE: The Ordinary is discontinuing its Colours makeup range. The concealers are on sale until 30 January at which point they will be removed from stock. You may still be able to buy them from third-party retailers for a few weeks after this fact, but then they will be gone.

The Ordinary foundations are also being discontinued but you have until June to stock up on these before they leave shelves for good.

You can read more about the reasons behind this decision, and get alternatives to The Ordinary foundations here.

Although The Ordinary is probably best known for its incredible range of skincare products – honestly, we’re obsessed with them and their ability to solve a whole hose of different skincare concerns – the Deciem-owned brand also sells makeup.

We recently reviewed The Ordinary Silicone Primer, and are big fans of The Ordinary’s Serum Foundation and now the brand has launched a new range of The Ordinary concealers, as part of its The Ordinary Colours range.

This range is on sale at Cult Beauty and Beauty Bay and is available in 21 shades, with each concealer coming in around the £5 mark.

At the time of writing, two of the concealers for deep skin have already sold out via Beauty Bay.

The Ordinary Concealer

When the brand first teased its The Ordinary concealers, there were reports they’d be available in 36 shades – which would be a great range. Of course, 21 is still a decent amount when you consider some brands don’t venture beyond 10 but the more the better. Especially for people at the ends of the spectrum.

This is even more impressive when you think that these concealers are under a fiver!

The good news, though, is that by sticking to 21 shades in the UK, each of the concealers matches directly with The Ordinary’s Serum foundation shades, so if you already know your shade in the foundation range, you can just buy like-for-like in the concealers.

The concealer promises full coverage and is said to contain colour pigments suspended in The Ordinary’s proprietary ‘spreadability system’. The company claims that this means the coverage is both full, while being natural, and the colour is more even.

It also is lightweight enough not to gather in the fine lines under your eyes.

We’ve ordered The Ordinary Concealer in 1.1P. With both these concealers, as well as The Ordinary’s range of foundations, the number represents how light the foundation is and the letter represents that particular foundation’s undertone.

So 1.1P is Fair with Pink Undertones. By comparison, 1.0N is Very Fair with Neutral undertones, 1.2Y is Light with Yellow undertones – all the way up to 4.1R Deep with Red undertones.
