This is the last Ere Perez product to review…from my first order. Yes, I’ve purchased more products since…I placed an order for a skin highlighter, concealer and some lipsticks. I’ll be posting my reviews soon so keep an eye out for those.
The Oat Milk Foundation is described as a ‘sheer, lightweight, buildable foundation that can be worn by all skin types but especially those with oily or sensitive skin. It creates a natural appearance while adding a healthy glow to your complexion, offering coverage while hydrating and protecting the skin’. It is fragrance free, cruelty free and vegan.
Review: I wanted a foundation that was lightweight, healthy for the skin and one that wasn’t packed with harmful ingredients. After reading up on the Ere Perez range, I decided to place an order for the Oat Milk Foundation. I was initially torn between the shades ‘Light/Medium’ and ‘Medium’. My skin is not pale nor tanned; somewhere in between, which always makes foundation shopping difficult. When I’m stuck between shades I always lean towards the darker shade. The great thing about Ere Perez is that they include a description of each shade. It’s not the same thing as testing it in person, however it can help you to make a better choice. I have yellow-based skin, with light freckles and skin that tans in summer. So I decided to order the Medium shade. I’m pretty happy with the shade, however I think the Light/Medium shade may have suited my skin tone better. The Medium* shade had strong yellow undertones, and also leans towards neutral, so it’s slightly darker than my current skin tone. But I know this will work well when my skin is tanned.
and blended into the skin.
The foundation itself has a very creamy texture. It reminds me of the Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation, due to the texture and feel. It is quite lightweight on the skin. In terms of coverage, I would say it has a light to medium coverage. I don’t know if it can be built up to a full coverage; I haven’t tried yet, however once I do I will post my thoughts. I find that one full pump is enough to cover the whole face. I usually use my fingers for application as I feel it sinks into the skin better. I find that it doesn’t completely cover my blemishes so I always need to apply concealer.
One thing I did notice about this foundation is that when you apply it to the skin, you need to work quickly to blend it in as it sets very quickly. I like to take one full pump, warm it between my hands and press it onto the skin. This application works well and ensures a more even coverage. The finish is very natural looking; it’s almost like a second skin. In terms of longevity, it wears pretty well but tends to fade after a few hours of wear. I like to apply a finishing powder on top to set it into place.
Overall I’m pretty happy with this foundation. It has a great ‘natural finish’ and is good for those days when my skin is behaving. It hasn’t broken my skin out or caused irritation, which is great.
