Ere Perez 2017 Collection Review
I began this blog two years ago to the date, with a review of Ere Perez, so I think it's only fitting (and actually, entirely coincidental) that this post is going up on the 2nd birthday of Liberty Green.
The entire Ere Perez brand has had an overhaul in the last few months, with gorgeous new packaging (still in their chic silver and white minimalist style, but with more glass, less plastic). The Arnica Concealers have been revamped and reformulated, now in a layerable, full-coverage cream consistency. The Carrot Colour Pots are now also in the same glass pot as the concealers, but with a mirrored lid, and new shades.
Versatile Vanilla Highlighter in Falling Star. I also have their new Lip liner Pencil in Sweet, but I'll be reviewing that separately.
Don't forget you can get free shipping within AU over $50 on any order.
This is a super pretty peachy pink - just peachy enough not to be washed out, it also looks beautiful on the lips. The shade Harmony is similar to Kjaer Weis Blush in Blossoming, but this is more on the pastel. The colour is intensely pigmented, so only tap your brush once or twice in the pot, building up the colour only if needed.
It is creamy enough to give a light dewiness to the skin, and not be dry on the lips, but stays put and doesn't fade throughout the day.
I've been using the new Multi-Purpose Brush to apply this to the apples of my cheeks, and this brush is the perfect size for the pot, and my cheeks. I absolutely LOVE it. It distributes the product evenly over the skin without disturbing the foundation or concealer underneath. I've actually been using it for all my cream blushes. I wonder now how I ever lived without it.
I actually think this brush would also work well for concealer/foundation, but I've yet to test it for that.
I've been wearing the brown Ere Perez eye pencil for ages, but the new Bronze shade takes it up a notch. It has a soft metallic finish, that adds a subtle light and sheen to the eyes, rather than a flat finish. All of the eye pencils are very creamy, so you can smudge it out with a brush for a soft smoky effect, or set with a little powder to stay put all day.
I have found the Bronze shade is creamier than the Brown pencil, so if you don't want to smudge your eyeliner, I recommend you opt for the latter instead.
This is the product that I love the new formula and packaging of the most.
The old style was in a roller-ball applicator, and the formula was very thin (almost water-like). I could NEVER get it to work for me - all of the colour ended up settling into the inner area of my lips, and it wouldn't blend well on the cheeks.
The new Beetroot Lip & Cheek Tint has a doe-foot applicator wand, and more of a gel-like consistency. It provides a long-lasting stain to the lips and cheeks - once it's on, it will stay put for hours.
I have been loving wear this on my lips especially. If you like bold, red lips but hate the maintenance, this product is for you!! I can wear it with just lip balm over the top (for moisture), alone, or even pair it with a little lipstick if I want a custom shade that I know won't wear off.
I put lip balm on, let sit whilst I do my makeup, then blot off any excess. I swipe the colour onto my lips, focusing on the outer edges most (as the colour holds more readily to the inner lip). I then use my finger or a dry Beauty Blender sponge to pat the colour out. It dries within seconds, and then you're done! If I want more intense colour, I simply build it up. For the cheeks, it's easiest if you apply it from the back of your hand, in a quick patting/blending motion.
The formula of this hasn't changed, but the packaging has. It's sleeker, in a screw-top pan rather than the old mirrored compact. The new flat-topped packaging makes all of these products much easier to store.
The shade Falling Star is reminiscent of RMS Beauty's Living Luminiser, but with a more golden undertone. It gives the skin a glowy, lit from within look!
