I always thought Lush was into bath products but a few months back I happened to see a video on youtube by DulceCandy where she presented her haul and a Lush Foundation was one of the products she showed. That peaked my curiosity and I was dying to try it out. Unfortunately, at the time, it hadn’t hit Indian markets so I had to wait for a bit before getting it …
About Lush Jackie Oats Color Supplement:-
This is for fairer folk – like those with a typical English Rose complexion or those with ginger hair. These paler skins tend to need gentle care and nurturing. So we’ve made the base of this supplement similar to our Dirty Shaving Cream, full of lots of things – like oatmilk, honey and aloe vera – to cool the skin and reduce redness. Added to Jackie Oates is a blend of pigments to allow pale types to have a covering of colour to even out their face without looking darker than usual or overly tinted. Pale skin types are the most sensitive to sun damage and we wanted to offer some protection without burdening this cream with heavy chemical sunscreens. The solution was to add titanium dioxide as part of the pigment, which acts as a sun block.
Jackie Oates is a light, soothing and gentle base for very pale skin types, which are often sensitive and prone to redness. Helen Ambrosen (LUSH inventor) used soothing oats and honey, and the moisturizing, protective qualities of lanolin to calm and hydrate. The result? A perfect porcelain finish.

My experience with Lush Jackie Oats Color Supplement:-
- Packaging – This comes in a glass tub with a screw top lid. Its sturdy and hasn’t chipped after multiple falls (yes, I’m clumsy )
- Color & Texture – This looks like a concealor and is quite thick. I suppose it’s so because it is meant to be blended with moisturizers as well. It doesn’t clog my pores and also provides sun protection so thats another plus point.
- Fragrance – I can’t quite pinpoint the fragrance but I feel like its more or less akin to an olive fragrance. It isn’t yucky and fades off within a minute of application.
- How to use – This can be used in 3 ways: As a foundation, concealor or a tinted moisturizer (mixed with a moisturizer).
My Verdict about Lush Jackie Oats Color Supplement:-
I have tried it in all 3 ways and I personally like it as a concealor or a Tinted Moisturizer. Lush has 4 more variants (Dk. Yellow, Lt. Yellow, Dk. Pink, Lt. Pink) but none of them suited me properly until this one.
- As a Foundation: This is the way I least like this..When used lightly it’s ok, But if I use a tiny bit extra, a white cast shows up. Plus, I feel like it clogs my pores when used for full coverage.
- As a Concealor: This is really good as a concealor. Just a tiny dot is required for the entire eye area and it doesn’t make me look weird like Celina Jaitley (we all know her concealor faux pas, don’t we?) It melds well into the skin and stays for a long long time.
- As a Tinted Moisturizer: I like using it best as a TM. All I do is mix 3times the moisturizer as the color supplement, mix it and apply. This does take getting used to since it requires extra efforts, but I like the even finish it gives. My skin looks bright and doesn’t get sweaty or melt in the heat. But I haven’t tested it in the summer time when the heat is at its peak so may have to hold judgement on that.
