Hi guys and welcome to this blog post which is going to be my thoughts on the reformulated Ere Perez Oat Milk Foundation and it’s new sister, the Quinoa Water Foundation. I’ve had this review sitting for a bit as I really wanted to test out the foundations for a good while and give you my honest thoughts.
So here they are in their gorgeous packaging! I started by getting two samples* of the Oat Milk Foundation* in the two lightest shades… Latte and Honey. I have a light skin with a pink undertone. Latte was the right undertone but way too light, its extremely fair. Honey is a good depth of shade for me but it’s much warmer in undertone. However with Summer coming I decided to go for Honey and I will speak more about the shade in a moment.
So these are the shades for the Oat Milk Foundation on three different complexions. From lightest to darkest they are Latte, Honey, Chai, Caramel, Brew and Mocha. Ere Perez have increased the shade range from 3 to 6 shades with the reformulation, which is great, but I think the shade range does need work, which is something I’m sure they will expand on. As I said, I got Honey, which is a tad warm for my complexion but I must say it does blend into my natural tone beautifully.
For those that are interested, here is the full ingredients list for the foundation, which is Vegan.
So, the shade is workable for me, now about the formula. The foundation is said to be best suited for normal, combination and oily skins and is marketed as a medium to full coverage, buildable product. I find the foundation to be a lovely, creamy consistency and easy to work with. I feel it is worked in well with a damp beauty sponge for a more sheered out coverage, or can be buffed in beautifully with a brush for a solid medium coverage. I don’t love a full coverage look but it definitely can be built up. What I love most about this foundation is the finish. To say it is aimed at normal, combo and oily skins, it has a lovely nourishing, dewy finish. Being combination myself, I’ve always gone for soft matte finishes, but I actually adore how this looks on my skin and it really lasts all day. I don’t have dry skin, but I think someone with a drier skin could enjoy this formula, as long as they prep their skin well. I also find it works great over an SPF primer, so big bonus on that front! It’s a 30ml tube for £29 which is lasting very well as I seem to only need a small amount for a full face application.
Now to the newer Quinoa Water Foundation*. It comes in only these 3 shades, Haze, Dawn and Dusk, which are all fairly warm in undertone as far as I can see. I went for Haze, the lightest of the three, which is a little too yellow for me, but as with the Oat Milk, it does blend into and adapt to my skin tone.
Again this product is Vegan and here are the full ingredients.
It’s said to be a ‘barely there’ lightweight coverage and suitable for all skin types, with a matte finish. I find that this can be worked in with a sponge, brush or the fingers, but less is definitely more. Because it is a very watery consistency, it is tempting to put a lot in the face to begin with, but this will just sit on the face and not blend in. It also dries down extremely quickly so it’s best to work in small amounts in small areas. I also find I like to let it sink in whilst I do the rest of my makeup, and then powder, as it can sit on top of the skin a little and needs time to melt into the skin. Perhaps my skin is a little dehydrated? I’d be interested to see how folks with dry skins find this foundation. It’s a 30ml glass bottle with a dropper for £26.50. I think it’s lovely and it feels really weightless on the skin.
So as you can tell, I’m a big fan of both of these foundations. The Oat Milk Foundation is my favourite out of the two and the one I would recommend to most people. I will definitely be repurchasing this and I think it’s one of the best foundations natural beauty has to offer.
Have you tried either of these foundations and what do you think?
