The Ordinary High-Adherance Silcone Primer


A lightweight serum-like primer that prepares skin for the application of makeup.

Using an advanced formula of adaptive silicones, this smoothing serum mattifies and hydrates skin, blurring pores for a high-definition makeup look and helping foundation to adhere to skin for longer. For those who prefer to go bare-skinned, this also performs as a light, non-oily surface hydrator for a natural dewy look. Creates a smoothing barrier over the skin’s surface, helping makeup to glide across with ease.

  1. Sarah

    At first I hated this primer. Like some other reviewers said it would slip and slide and move my foundation around, then I read the description again and thought I’d try it as the last step in my skincare routine and I am shook! If you let this primer set for a while and then apply foundation on top it makes your pores invisible!! Also my make up has been lasting longer than ever! Lovveee

    I love it as it does keep my extreme dry skin quite moisturised and also keeps my base makeup super flawless and glowy. Also love wearing it on the regular as it makes my skin look amazing and glowy. Tip:- don’t apply too much, go in small amounts because sometimes my foundation does slip but overall I love it.

    My intent when I bought this product was to only putted around my nose, I tend to have larger pores there and my foundation seems to disappear after a few hours. When I first started to use this product I was really delighted, my foundation would look really good even after a 8-10 hours. But after a week I started to have some redness even some spots. I never ever ever had any spots there and the only new product in my routine was this one so I deducted it was the problematic one!

  4. RC

    This product is a great price, makes your foundation go on better and did not dry out my skin. Makeup still comes off a little throughout the day, especially in more oily areas but would purchase again.

  5. Martina

    I usually use this on my no make-up days to fill in my pores, put on some concealer and that’s it. It works nice and for the price you can’t really go wrong. I enjoy using it because I can see some difference when I look at my face few hours after applying this which I appreciate.

  6. Klara S

    This primer works an absolute treat! It’s very thick, and it helps the foundation to stay longer. Very very happy with the product, thank you The Ordinary! 🙂

  7. Claire

    For this price, the product is great! It’s super soft on the skin and a tiny bit goes a really long way. Putting too much on gets cloggy on my skin under make up but I’ll also sometimes wear on its own to blur pores and even my complexion on make up free days.

  8. Jas

    I really like this primer, the price was very good so I thought I would try it. It feels very nice on and then made my foundation go on nicely too. I did stop wearing primers because I started to feel they were getting very expensive, but this one is super good!

  9. Nadine

    First time using time using this brand but absolutely love it. Makes my skin feel so smooth and my foundation glides on. So pleased, especially considering the price.

  10. Nicky

    I loved this primer ever since I first used it. However, even upon using it for the first time it was evident that the tube was not filled fully, as if I only had half the product even though it was brand new. This was disappointing however the product itself is great so it would be good to receive a full bottle rather than half.

  11. Nay

    This primer is my favourite for how it keeps my makeup still all day and holds in the moisture from my moisturiser. It does smooth over texture but it says mattifying in this description and comes up very shiny on my skin and only gets worse if I don’t put makeup over it, I don’t have overly oily skin too. Otherwise I would highly recommend (especially for the price).

  12. Alexa

    I thought this would be way better than it was, it didn’t help my make-up stay on, just made my skin feel greas

  13. FI

    Great price, probably cheapest primer out there with some good reviews, however the primer breaks up on my skin so any foundation layered on top crumbles. I have switched moisturisers and foundations but the primer is the issue. Will not repurchase but not the biggest loss.

  14. Rose

    Perfect primer for oily skin, long lasting and looks great under foundation. This product has kept my makeup on for more that 10 hours without moving and just a little bit of oil on the t-zone. Great paired with the Urban Decay setting spray for super long lasting effects.

  15. Moyzie20

    One of the first cheapest primers I’ve ever found. It’s quite nice and moisturising and helps stick products on your face however its just a bog standard primer, so its worth buying if you are on a budget

  16. Kat

    I have combination skin type and it’s pretty oily on the T zone. I tried this primer under MAC Face & Body foundation and it made it patchy, my skin looked oily and the application was uneven. So I wouldn’t recommend it for oily skin types.

  17. Lulu

    I didn’t expect much from a 4 dollar primer but it was pretty hyped so I thought it would perform well but it does not work for my skin at all… Made me break out and made my foundation look really patchy but it does go really smooth on the skin.

  18. Meg

    Really good value for money, as The Ordinary always is. Love, love the silicone and makes my make up last for ages, very similar to the Huda Beauty primer if you don’t wanna spend money on it.

  19. Brainybimbo

    This primer is amazing for the price. I have oily skin and have used high-end primers which haven’t saved my makeup…this, on the other hand, keeps my make up looking fresh ALL Day. I use a decent sized blob all over my face but concentrating on rubbing it into my t-zone and let it sit for a couple of minutes before applying my foundation, with a beauty blender works best. I’ve even been able to use foundations I’d given up on as they slide off my face. Can’t get my head around how cheap this is vs how effective. Will definitely be repurchasing.

  20. HM

    I have combination skin and I noticed after using the primer, my foundation would slide off and wouldn’t sit well around my nose. Even applying powder seemed to make no difference. Initially, I thought the foundation I was using was the issue however after using it without the primer I noticed that the foundation applied better and lasted longer. I also noticed that I began to break out around my nose and forehead (the areas of my face which tend to get oily) after using the primer. The price is great, but It just didn’t work for me!
