Finding a perfect, foundation isn’t easy even with conventional brands. Often times foundations don’t look natural, or oxidize and you end up with too dark shade, or they look cakey, or show dry skin patches, or make your skin looking greasy… or all at once! Sounds familiar? Recently I tried Ere Perez Oat Foundation in shade latte and I think it is close to perfection.
This 100% vegan foundation is creamy, but not greasy. Latte – very light porcelain shade matches my light skin with neutral undertones perfectly. It actually looked so light when I put it on my hand, that I was afraid for a moment that it will be too light for me. However, as soon as I put it on my skin it looked perfect. Although I think it may be too light for most of the people, especially in the summer. It comes in 6 shades:
LATTE – light, porcelain skin
HONEY – light skin
CHAI – light to medium skin
CARAMEL – golden, warm skin
BREW – medium to deep skin
MOCHA – deep skin
The problem here is with undertones, I haven’t found any descriptions on the web. I had to reach out to Ere Perez brand to ask specifically if latte will work for neutral undertone skin.
This product gives a very natural, dewy finish, providing medium coverage, but you can build it up to full (I haven’t tried it though, I don’t need full coverage). If you prefer more matte finish, you can set it with any translucent setting powder. I didn’t, since I love the glowing skin effect.
Very small amount is enough for my whole face. Foundation is hydrating and long lasting – all day with no touch ups, however I could matte my T-zone a little bit. I have dry combination skin. What is also a great thing, it doesn’t clog the pores at all! I was surprised, because that usually happens to me with any foundation, even clean, and I needed to use face scrub every night to get rid off excess of sebum. Ere perez oat foundation definitely doesn’t clog pores, so it is safe to say it will work for acne prone skins.
I love everything about this foundation: from minimalistic packaging to the product quality and performance. I think it is a very luxurious product in a simple, modern packaging and with affordable price tag. The only down side I see is the fact that there are only 2 light shades and one is for neutral/cool complexion and the other seems to work better for warm, which means if the lightest shade is gonna be too light for me (let’s say in the summer) I have no option to find a perfect match, since honey shade will be too warm. Also, it would be perfect if it had UV protection. All in all, I’d give it 5 of 5 stars for the performance and beautiful, natural and dewy finish. Now I’m super curious about their other products, can’t wait to try more!
