Ere Perez has created quite a stir in the green beauty community. It’s always exciting when a new, unheard brand shows up with its pretty packaging, pure ingredient lists and great promises. Though, if you live in Australia, you might have heard about Ere Perez before we European girls did. Ere Perez is an Australian brand, though, its products are crafted in Mexico. All natural makeup collection from this brand is pretty wide with beauty products such as liquid foundation, highlighters, blushes, mascaras, eyeshadows, and lipsticks. There’s also a range of vegan makeup brushes. Most of Ere Perez products are vegan, however, a few (including its lippies and mascaras) contain beeswax. None of the products contain carmine.
Versatile Vanilla Highlighter in Falling Star* 11g / £17 (approx $24)
This gently scented cream highlighter comes in 2 shades: Falling star, which is a cool rose gold suitable for pale and light skin tones with cool/neutral undertones, and Sun Halo, which is a warm golden suitable for olive and medium to dark skin tones with warm undertones. The consistency of this highlighter is very soft and moisturizing. I mostly use highlighters on my cheekbones (alone or over a blush), above my cupid’s bow and on the tip of my chin, so I use the Falling Star for the same areas. Because it’s so soft, I like to apply it with my fingers and then blend in with L’eclisse round-top blush brush or Everyday Minerals flat top kabuki brush. I’m very impressed by how easy you can achieve a beautiful and glowing look with this highlighter, and it is one of my favorite makeup products that I’m using at the moment.
Ingredients: Caprylic / Capric Triglyceride, Olive Oil, Candelilla (Euphorbia Cerifera) Wax, Cocoa (Theobroma Cacao) Butter, Ozokerite, Avocado (Persea Gratissima) Oil, Grape (Vitis Vinifera) Seed Oil, Vanilla, Tocopherol (Vitamin E). May Contain: CI 77019 / Mica, CI 77891 Titanium Dioxide. Vegan.
Pure Rice Powder Blush in My Blush* 15g / £20 (approx $28)
Ere Perez Pure Rice Powder duo blushes come in 3 shades: Bondi Blush (coral and peach pink), Rose Tones (pink and terracotta), and My Blush (universal soft tan). I’m not going to lie, when I opened it for the first time, I though that My Blush was actually a bronzer. That’s because this duo blush has two tan shades, which look way more intense in the packaging. They do look a bit orange in a swatch photo (below), but in reality they are more earthy browns, however, both warm toned. The blush is not very pigmented and even though my skin is pretty pale it looks light and natural even after a few applications. Because it’s so light and easy to blend, it can be used for contouring or even for the whole face to give it some light tan. Though, it would be more suitable for warmer or neutral skin tones.
Ingredients: Native rice starch (oryza sativa), mica, zinc stearate, potassium sorbate, caprylic/capric triglyceride, isoamyl laurate, triheptanoin, potassium sorbate. May contain: +/- iron oxides, C177891. Vegan.

Natural Almond Oil Mascara in Black* 10ml / £16.50 (approx $23)
There are 4 mascaras in Ere Perez makeup range, but this one is the first product that actually launched Ere Perez as a brand. It’s described as “a beautiful black mascara, to give length, structure and flexibility to your lashes”. You can see from the photo below that my lashes need all the help they can get from a mascara (OK, some length and curl would be just fine)! The Natural Almond Oil mascara gives that length and quite a lot of it. However, it also feels like it weighs down my lashes and even using a lash curler before application doesn’t help much. Other than that, I really like how it performs. I also like the dryer than usual mascara consistency, which isn’t messy at all, so it helps with smooth application and prevents clumping. I enjoy using this mascara and it’s better and more dramatic than many natural mascaras I’ve tried in the past. Though, I’m still going to look for that perfect one. I hear that Ere Perez Volumising Waterproof Mascara is pretty great too, so maybe I should give it a try.
Ingredients: Beeswax, Carnauba (Copernicia Cerifera) Wax, Palm Kernel (Elaeis Guineensis) Wax, Soybean (Glyicine Soja) Seed Wax, isoamyl laurate, Calcium Stearate, Isopropyl Palmitate, Sweet Almond (Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis) Oil, Palmitic Acid, Mamey (Pouteria Sapota) Oil, Avocado (Persea Gratissima) Oil, Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Orange (Citrus Aurantium Dulcis) Oil, Lemon (Citrus Medica Limonum) Oil, Bergamot (Citrus Bergamia) Oil, iron oxides.
