Ere Perez Natural Cosmetics is a well-loved brand in the natural beauty community, but I’m only just getting around to actually trying some of their products. I’ve been sent Ere Perez Natural Cosmetics Oat Milk Foundation, Carrot Colour Pot and Avocado Waterproof Mascara to test, as part of my role as a Love Lula Accredited Blogger. Read on to find out if these premium natural beauty products live up to their reputation!Natural Brand Focus - Ere Perez Natural Cosmetics Review

So that’s the good stuff, but how do they perform? Let’s find out.

Ere Perez Natural Cosmetics Oat Milk Foundation Review

I’ll start with the Ere Perez Oat Milk Foundation*, which I have in Latte, the palest of the six shades available for £29 from Love Lula.

Ere Perez describe it as a “gorgeous creamy foundation with natural oat milk. Hydrating, non-greasy, breathable and long-lasting for a flawless fresh finish. Medium to full coverage.” It comes in a recyclable cardboard carton.

Now, I have to say I’m on the fence about this foundation. The first few times I used it, I didn’t like it at all. It is very thick, and a little greasy. It’s also quite hard to blend, and seemed to stick to any dry patches of skin. As my skin is combination, I was surprised – I am not sure it would be great for dry skin. I didn’t use it for ages and then thought I’d give it another go. I’m glad I did, as it is grown on me. I think the key is to make sure skin is thoroughly exfoliated, and moisturised before using it. If you want to know my favourite natural, microbead-free facial scrub, take a peek at this post.

Ingredients:

Aqua (water), coco-caprylate/caprate, glycerin, polyglyceryl-6 polyricinolate, oat (avena sativa) kernel extract, peach (prunus persica) fruit extract, tocopherol (vitamin e), biosaccharide gum-1, sodium anisate, sodium levulinate, tocopheryl acetate,magnesium sulfate,sodium salicylate,ethylhexylglycerin,citric acid,glyceryl caprylate,aluminum starch octenylsuccinate. May contain +/- iron oxides, CI77891.

As you can see here on my hand, it does cover pretty well and the colour is really great for me. Scroll to the bottom to see how it looks on my face, with the other Ere Perez Natural Cosmetics products.

I get quite a lot of oil breakthrough as the day goes on, even if I use translucent powder over it. For this reason, I wouldn’t buy this foundation again, but am happy to use it now that I have it.

Ere Perez Natural Cosmetics Avocado Waterproof Mascara Review

Next I’ll show you Ere Perez Avocado Waterproof Mascara in Black, which is £21 from Love Lula*. They say it’s “the only natural waterproof mascara on the market! A one-of a kind product formulated with organic avocado and mamey oils that nourish and fortify lashes. Volumising, full black coverage and amazing 24-hour wear for that wow effect.”Ere Perez Avocado Waterproof Mascara with brush showing

It has a bristle brush, which I like, and the simple white packaging is chic and subtle. It comes in a cardboard carton, which is easy to recycle.

Ingredients:

Carnauba (copernicia cerifera) wax, palm kernel (elaeis guineensis) wax, soybean (gyicine soja) seed oil, dimethicone, calcium stearate, mamey (pouteria sapota) oil, sweet almond (prunus amygdalus dulcis) oil, sopropyl palmitate, avocado (persea gratissima) oil, palmitic acid, tocopheryl acetate (vitamin E), orange (citrus aurantium dulcis) oil, lemon (citrus medica limonum) oil, bergamot (citrus bergamia) oil, iron oxides.

So, how does it perform? Not that wall, sadly, in my experience. It looks nice at the start of the day, and does give good definition and volume, although nothing spectacular. Unfortunately, within a couple of hours, I find it smudges beneath my eyes, and left unchecked, it only gets worse.

I’ve tried to use extra powder around my eyes to see if this helps, but to no avail. It even prints below by eyebrows, where the lashes touch the skin. The final photo also shows how the foundation wears after a day – quite shiny.

Strangely, even though it doesn’t stay on the lashes all that well, it’s really difficult to remove. I use a cleansing balm, and then micellar water, and still have residue after my shower the next morning. So I can’t recommend this mascara, and suggest reading my reviews of Inika Long Lash Mascara and PHB Ethical Beauty All in One Mascara as these are much better.

Ere Perez Natural Cosmetics Carrot Colour Pot Review

My favourite of the Ere Perez Natural Cosmetics products I’m reviewing is the Carrot Colour Pot. It’s a multi-purpose cream that can be used for lips and cheeks. They say it ‘features many healthy ingredients like carrots, full of antioxidants, considered helpful in keeping skin soft and hydrated. This vegan multitasking balm adds instant colour to cheeks and lips.”

I chose the shade ‘Hello’ which is a bright poppy red colour. You can buy Carrot Colour Pot for £21 from Love Lula* and I can tell you that it will last a long time, as a little goes a long way. This balm comes in a glass pot in a cardboard carton.

Ere Perez Natural Cosmetics Carrot Colour Pot in Hello review

It is so strongly pigmented, and so easy to apply and blend. It is available in five colours, including pinks and dark red*. It’s comfortable to wear and feels moisturising on my lips, and lasts well.

Ingredients:

Hydrogenated olive (olea europea) oil, candelilla (euphorbia cerifera) wax, ozokerite, caprylic/capric triglyceride, avocado (persea gratissima) oil, carrot (daucus carota sativa) oil, tocopheryl acetate (vitamin E). May contain +/– Iron oxides, CI77019, CI77891.

Just dab on a small amount with a fingertip or brush, and blend over cheeks. You an use your finger to apply it to your lips, or use a lip brush for a more polished finish. Scroll down to see how it looks on my lips and cheeks. I took it on my recent trip to Nashville, as it is such a great 2-in-1 product that saves space in my make-up bag.

How Ere Perez Natural Cosmetics Look on Me

On the left, I’m wearing the Ere Perez Natural Cosmetics Oat Milk Foundation all over, with no powder on tip. I’m also wearing a small amount of Carrot Colour Pot on my lips and cheeks and you can see it looks very natural.

On the right, I’ve added a dusting of translucent pressed powder, and two coats of Avocado Waterproof Mascara. I’ve also filled in my eyebrows using the technique you’ll find in this post.

The foundation covers well and gives a natural look. I added extra layers beneath my eyes, around my nose, and over blemishes. However I do get quite a lot of oil breakthrough as the day goes on. As I mentioned before, my skin is combination, so if you have oily skin, I don’t think this is the foundation for you. It’s also not ideal for dry skin, as it does cling to any rough or flaky patches.

This picture shows how the Carrot Colour Pot looks when more is added. I used fingertips to dot onto cheeks and blended it out. I used a lip brush to apply it on my lips. As you can see it’s much brighter than the pictures above, where I just used a small amount.Wearing Ere Perez Natural Cosmetics Oat Milk Foundation, Carrot Colour Pot and Avocado Waterproof Mascara

So to sum up, I wouldn’t recommend Ere Perez Natural Cosmetics Mascara at all. I think Ere Perez Natural Cosmetics Oat Milk Foundation is good for normal to combination skin, but don’t think it would be good for very dry, or oily skin. But I would highly recommend the Ere Perez Natural Cosmetics Carrot Colour Pot for all skin types.

    I haven’t tried the oat milk foundation so can’t comment, but I completely agree with Becky on the mascara and carrot pot. I found the mascara very disappointing. Dry and difficult to apply and not particularly waterproof. I gave up after the first few tries so now it’s languishing at the bottom of my makeup bag. I love the carrot pot, in fact I prefer to the rms equivalent, and that is praise indeed! It is easy to apply with finger or brush and very blendable. I also have similar colouring to Becky and also use “Hello”, which is a vibrant warm red.

      Thanks so much for your comment! I’m keen to get some more colours of the carrot pot- I have some samples of the RMS equivalent too and prefer this one as the colour is clearer- I found the RMS ones a little muddy for my taste. Have you tried RMS mascara? I might give that one a go next! Xx
