Out of the 2 primers, this is my favourite, but I also use the other primer. This just seems to help my make-up look flawless and last longer.

What is The Ordinary Silicone Primer

The Ordinary says – High-adherence blurring surface smoother and primer. This formula uses advanced adaptive silicones to act as a matte, hydrating, blurring primer for makeup that looks higher in definition and adheres longer. The formula can also be used alone as a non-greasy hydrator that reduces the look of pores and imperfections.


  • Makeup Adherence
  • Visible Surface Texture
  • Hydration

How & When to use The Ordinary Silicone Primer

Use as the last step in your skincare regimen after your SPF but before applying your make-up. You can use this alone if you wish as a hydrator to reduce the look of pores.

What is the colour, texture and smell of this primer?

It’s a white creamy texture. Some people say it smells quite strong. It´s not that strong for me, and I´m quite sensitive to smell. It blends into the skin wonderfully, leaving it feeling really smooth and velvety.

Reviews of Silicone Primer

This currently scores 3.7 on the Deciem website. The reviews are very mixed on this. I personally love this primer. I find it works best with my stick foundation rather than my liquid foundation, so you may need to play around with different foundations. I normally apply this and let it dry for a few minutes before applying foundation.

The Ordinary Primers - Silicone & High Spreadability Primer

The Ordinary High-Spreadability Primer

As you can see in the unboxing video above, The Ordinary High Spreadability Primer is very different to the Silicone Primer.

What is The Ordinary High-Spreadability Fluid Primer?

The Ordinary says: High-Spreadability Fluid Primer helps create a smooth base for longer-lasting makeup application. This next-generation primer increases the spreadability of your makeup so that it looks more even and natural—especially around your eyes, within fine lines, and on dry skin. Plus, it contains high-flexibility silicones, which means it has a soft, velvety feel with a dewy finish. This formula is designed to be suitable for all skin types.

When & How To Use High-Spreadability Primer

You would apply this just before your make-up. After your skincare and SPF.
