     This isn't necessarily a full review on this foundation, as I haven't had it long enough to have fully tested it out and formed a full opinion on it.

     I did, however, want to get up some swatches and pictures of the product, just to help out anyone that might be interested in some of the fairer shades available.

     These foundations went out of stock, almost immediately at launch, and have been out of stock now, for quite awhile.

     Hopefully, this foundation will be back in stock soon, and maybe some of these pictures will help you out on deciding which shade to choose.

     I've swatched the four shades that I have, next to a few other brands, to hopefully give a better idea how The Ordinary Serum shades run.

     Here are the same swatches, after they had completely dried down.

     The Ordinary website also provides their own swatches, along with a foundation shade guide reference chart, which can be found here.

     While their guide and swatches can be helpful, and I absolutely appreciate that they've provided those, there is still no baseline or a control shade of sorts, to help determine exactly where your shade might land.
