The thing about natural/organic skincare ranges is that the quality is so varied. Every time I have the chance to review a new mineral make up brand I am excited but also holding my breath at the same time. I even splashed out over £100 on some RMS make up and I only liked half the products. But I digress.
I was sent a few products from a brand called Ere Perez. The lady herself is from Mexico, where her family worked in natural therapies for generations. She moved to Australia and elevated her make up range that contains natural ingredients.
Ere Perez is free parabens, talc, petrolatum, lead, mineral oil, synthetic fragrances, Propylene glycol and more. Since it is free of so many of these things you have to expect the finished product to be slightly different you what you are used to.
I’ve written this review much quicker than my normal turnaround because I’ve really enjoyed using these products – every single one. Let me give you a run through…
Packaging – it’s white and quite clean looking. It’s not fancy or anything but it’s quite fitting for a natural make up brand – you’re not going to have an all natural powder then have it encrusted with diamonds, are you?
I have three products;
1. Translucent Corn Perfecting Powder – One for all (£21.50).
When I heard CORN POWDER I of course thought of the classic Corn Silk powder! I am NOT a big powder fan although I have so so so many mainly because I like the glow finish and with dry skin, most powders turn crusty on my face.
Therefore my dream powder is extremely light with a tiny bit of coverage! But a light finish for me is everything.
This powder is brilliant for what I want. It’s currently sitting in my daily make up bag which speaks volumes – it is incredible incredibly light and does not look powdery on the skin. It simply disappears and takes shine away and importantly, locks in my foundation so it lasts and lasts. I didn’t swatch this because it is traceless once you blend it.
2. Versatile Vanilla Highlighter Fallling Star (£18).
This creamy highlighter comes in two shades Falling Star (a light pink) and Sun Halo (golden tones). They are not too soft not too hard and not too soft. It does have a lovely glossy finish and really highlights nicely – it is what I wanted RMS’s highlighter to be. It’s also not sticky.
Volumising Waterproof Mascara (£17.50) is the only ‘Natural waterproof mascara’ on the market apparently.
Natural mascara is not an area I have had success with before. This is made of a mixture of waxes and oils, as well as essential oils like lemon, orange and bergamot.
Firstly this smells different to regular mascaras – it is not horrible, but it sort of smells a bit…almond-food like. I can’t explain it, it just smells different! The brush is also quite large I personally would prefer it a bit smaller but that is because I have shorter lashes.
Despite this, this mascara was a SUCESS! Amazingly it held my curl which is quite rare with lashes like mine that like to point downwards, and added quite a lot of length too (but not so much if you want tons of volume). It is also completely waterproof – I have watery eyes and I didn’t experience any smudging. As it is waterproof you will need a good eye make up remover to take it off.
