Ere Perez is one of those beauty brands that over a couple of years or so became regular choices for many green beauty lovers. It’s easy to see why by looking at the nice packaging and clean ingredient lists. But it’s not only that, most of the products that I’ve tried from its range, give an outstanding performance and results. I had reviewed a few items about a year and a half ago when the brand wasn’t that well know as it is now (I can’t believe that so much time has already passed). You can find the review here, if interested.
Oat Milk Foundation in Light* 40ml / $32 – £24
This foundation has been on my radar for a while, but I was hesitant to get it because of many controversial opinions about it.
It has a thick consistency, which tends to dry rather fast, so you have to work quickly with it. Because it’s thick, it can look cakey when applied incorrectly, therefore, start out small. I like to apply it with a foundation brush and blend it in with my fingers where needed. This way it sets in nicely. This foundation is definitely not your friend if you have dry skin or dry skin patches. Although it does not dry the skin out, it makes the dryness more visible. To avoid that, make sure to exfoliate your skin from time to time and moisturize it well prior applying the foundation. Also, I noticed that it looks much smoother with a primer (I use Inika Primer). It’s worth mentioning that the foundation is suitable for sensitive skin since it doesn’t contain any fragrance or other potentially irritating ingredients.
The coverage is medium with a natural, matte finish. I find that the foundation lasts well and does not dry out the skin as the day goes by. Oily skin types might still need to set it with powder for some extra longevity.
There are four shades available: Light, Light Medium, Medium, and Dark. The shade Light is suitable for fair/light skin and is a perfect match for me at the moment. I love that it has a neutral undertone, which is very rare as most light foundations tend to have pink undertones and, therefore, look unnatural on my skin.
Eco Vegan Multipurpose Brush* $29 / £22
A vegan small flat-top kabuki brush made from corn resin with synthetic fibres and an aluminum ferrule. To be honest, when I first saw this brush I was slightly appalled by its petite size. I thought that with a size like this, it won’t perform well, but it seems that I was wrong. Now, this brush is one of my favorites. I use it to apply my foundation, my bronzer or to do touch-ups throughout the day. It’s soft and picks up the ideal amount of product. Also, because of its size, it’s purse-friendly and convenient to take on the go. The only downside is that its price is definitely on the higher end.
Beautiful Beetroot Cheek & Lip Tint in Joy* 10ml / $24 – £18.50
Beauty products that you can use in more than one way are my favorite kind. That’s why I was so thrilled to try this Beautiful Beetroot Tint, made for both – lips and cheeks. Its name already tells us that one of the main ingredients providing this luscious cherry red color is beetroot. So here we go, going as natural as it gets. The Tint has a gentle, sweet scent, and I can definitely detect traces of blue agave (well, tequila) in it.
The main thing that this tint stands out from many other tints out there is that it’s extremely PIGMENTED. You have to be careful and precise with it, or the situation can go from beautiful to scary in one careless stroke. High pigmentation, however, ensures that you’ll need only the tiniest amount for each use, which makes the product a good value for money.
For the cheeks: as I mentioned earlier, you only need the smallest drop of this tint for each cheek. Because it’s fast-drying and pigmented, I recommend you not to apply it directly onto the cheeks from the bottle. This can cause streaks, which aren’t easily blended (or at all). Use a brush or a damp beauty blender instead and tap it into the skin with gentle circular motions. The result is beautiful though and totally worth the effort – long-lasting cherry red cheeks.
For the lips: I find it best to apply the tint with a lip brush for a more precise look. You can try to apply it directly with a roll-on carefully, but chances are you will still need to correct it with a lip brush or a lip pencil. It dries out into a stunning classic red color with a matte finish. The best part is that it feels super comfortable and does not dry out the lips at all. You can remove it with only water and a cotton pad, so make sure to recheck if the tint did not move outside the lines after drinking liquids.
These last two makeup products from Ere Perez are the ones that I’ve already tried and reviewed on the blog before: Natural Almond Mascara in Black and Vanilla Highlighter in Falling Star, which is one of my favorite natural highlighters ever. I’m not going to elaborate on them any further because you can read my thoughts and see swatches here.
All Ere Perez natural makeup range is available at its official online shop. Other online stockists are Naturisimo (worldwide), LoveLula(worldwide), and Carbon Beauty (US).
