Ere Perez Oat Milk Foundation
The Ere Perez Oat Milk Foundation is a staple in my kit, I use it personally and have recommended it to many friends and clients, many of whom have become loyal fans. I feel it is easy to use and gives a really natural radiant skin finish.
This vegan foundation has been one of my favourite foundations for at least the last five years. The brand have just added another 4 colours to the range, taking it to 12; I was going to update an already updated review on here but decided a brand new one would be better, I hope it is helpful. I’ve also included updates to the other complexion products all of which are vegan too.
The texture of the foundation is quite creamy and applies well with fingers or a brush. I like to warm the product first with my fingers and then press into the skin just where I need it when applying to myself. When applying to a client I use a mixture of brush and fingers to work it into the skin. It blends beautifully into the skin with no caking or dryness. The coverage is medium but you can make it more lightweight or can build it to make it heavier where you need fuller coverage. It feels very light and comfortable on the face, you barely know it is there.
The foundation gives skin a nice glow but not shiny; I don’t feel I need to powder all over, just under eyes and any blemishes. Oilier skins may need more powder down the t-zone. I find that it lasts well throughout the day, so good durability.
I feel it is suitable for all skin types. Like any foundation, prepping the skin well underneath is important – moisturise well, using products appropriate for your skin type. Gentle exfoliation can also help with foundation application – a smoother surface means it will sit better and for longer.
The Ere Perez Oat Milk Foundation started with six colours which I had to mix quite a bit, two more were added a couple of years back perhaps and recently the range has grown to 12 colours, which is very welcome. Ere Perez call them flexi-shades meaning each colour is versatile and suits a few different skin tones. I haven’t had so much of a play with the new colours but am looking forward to doing so.
I personally used to be a mix of Honey and Chai but now wear Malt very comfortably.

Arnica All-Over Pot
The Arnica Concealer has been renamed as the Arnica All-Over Pot and had two colours added to the range. The formulation stays the same, the name change is to show the flexibility of the product – as a concealer but also as a fuller coverage foundation.
I’ve always liked this formulation as it is one of the very few natural concealers to have no coconut oil. This makes is great for anyone who is a bit more acne prone and sensitive to coconut oil and other derivatives. It also contains arnica which is antiseptic and anti-inflammatory so good for blemishes. It works really well under eyes, helping to conceal darkness – the shade Chai is quite yellow so I find it helps purple shadows and the mocha more orange so great for deeper skin tones.
This has good coverage that can be customised and has a matt finish which is great for blemishes and longevity. Gently powdering can also help it last longer. It comes in a little glass pot – use fingers or a brush to apply.
Ingredients – isononyl isononanoate, c12-15 alkyl benzoate, tapioca starch, euphorbia cerifera (candelilla) wax, copernicia cerifera (carnauba) wax, theobroma cacao (cocoa) seed butter, helianthus annus (sunflower) seed oil, arnica montana flower extract, aqua (water), polyhydroxystearic acid, ascorbyl palmitate, polymethylsilsesquioxane, tocopheryl acetate, tocopherol. May contain +/- iron oxides, CI 77891
Mocha shade: diisopropyl sebacate, mica, candelilla (euphorbia cerifera) wax, carnauba (copernicia cerifera) wax, cocoa (theobroma cacao) seed butter, c12-15 alkyl benzoate, sunflower (helianthus annuus) seed oil, arnica (arnica montana) flower extract, tocopherol (vitamin E), stearalkonium hectorite, ascorbyl palmitate, tocopheryl acetate, propylene carbonate. May contain +/- iron oxides, ci77891.

Lychee Creme Corrector
This is the newest addition to the Ere Perez complexion range. The Lychee Creme Correctors are highly pigmented liquid multi-taskers. They’re great to use anywhere on the face where you want to even out skin tone – so great for any pigmentation for example. Use them under eyes to correct and brighten dark shadows – Ere Perez call them sleep in a bottle! They’re also great to highlight and add dimension to the face.
I bought Uno to have a play with – in hindsight I should have bought Tres to correct my dark circles. However I’ve still been using Uno – I sometimes mix it into my foundation to give that more ‘punch’, I also use it to highlight so on my cheekbones, brow bones etc and feel that it brightens me.
I’ve been using them on a few different faces during some sessions I’ve been doing at Content, and have found they work really well. I’ve used them for brightening tired eyes, correcting pigmentation but also as a full coverage general concealer covering stubborn redness and blemishes.
The texture is creamy, it doesn’t feel dry and blends well into skin. The coverage is really great but doesn’t feel thick at all – use with fingers or a brush. It is quite a matt finish, so no sheen or shine which is a great asset in a concealer (as a sheen can draw attention to something) and also helps with longevity.
Ingredients – aqua (water), coco-caprylate/caprate, glycerin, polyglyceryl-3 polyricinoleate, litchi chinensis pericarp (lychee) extract, tocopheryl acetate (vitamin e), ascorbyl palmitate, butylene glycol, polyhydroxystearic acid, magnesium sulfate, citric acid, ethylhexylglycerin, potassium sorbate, sodium salicylate. +/- CI 77891 (titanium dioxide), CI 77491, CI 77499, CI 77492 (iron oxides).
