Ere Perez Review – Eye Products

This is my second post for the company Ere Perez. Over the years, I’ve collected a few items and I thought it time to think hard about what I like about them. Please click here for the review featuring the Pure Rice Powder Blush in Bronzer Tones and My Blush and Versatile Vanilla Highlighter in Sun Halo.

Sorry again for the lengthy post!

Organic Certification:

Again, rather than writing about any certifications for individual products, I will mention that first. Not all products are vegan and Ere Perez does not carry official organic certification, for any individual products or as a company.

They do commit to not including harmful ingredients such as parabens, talc, petrolatum, propylene glycol, BHT & BHA, Imidazolindinyl Urea, Paraffin, Lead, DMDM Hydantoin, nano particles, synthetic fragrances or mineral oil. They are also not tested on animals.

All Day Sunflower Oil Mascara in Brown

Ingredients:

Sunflower (Helianthus annuus) Oil, Beeswax, Carnauba (Copernicia Cerifera) Wax, Soybean (Glyicine Soja) Seed Wax, Palm Kernel Wax, Isoamyl Laurate, Calcium Stearate, Mamey (Pouteria Sapota) Oil, Palm (Elaeis Guineensis) Oil, Isopropyl Palmitate, Avocado (Persea Gratissima) Oil, Sweet Almond (Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis) Oil, Orange (Citrus Aurantium Dulcis) Oil, Lemon (Citrus Medica Limonum) Oil, Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Bergamot (Citrus Bergamia) Oil, Palmitic Acid, CI 77491 / Iron Oxide Red, CI 77492 / Iron Oxide Yellow

*NOT VEGAN

Expiration:

Not specified on packaging

Pricing:

$29.95 AUD for 10g or 0.35oz.

Packaging:

tube

The white tube is typical of most mascaras. Screw the lid off and the neck scrapes enough product off so you’re not left with an amount that is hard to work with. The wand is a spiral  with bristles. It’s not oversized so you don’t feel like you’re going to poke your eye out.

Scent:

It doesn’t have a scent, so the smell of the oils and waxes are not masked.

Texture:

The texture is not too wet or thick, which makes it easy to apply. I also don’t feel that I have to wait ages before I can start batting my eyes.

Application:

Wiggling the brush will help coat the lashes, as it’s a little thinner than most.

Opacity:

It will give you a thin coat that still has enough pigment to show. The brown is a lot softer than pure black.

Colour Purchased: Brown

Long-lasting brown mascara made with sunflower oil. A smooth non-greasy formula straight from nature to coat your lashes, adding shine and colour.

I do like this as an every day mascara if you’re not into full false lash effect. I don’t think the formula is that thickening, it’s better for lengthening. It holds a curl all day. I still like to brush my lashes out as I find that they can clump together. I also think this makes them look a bit stiff.

I have never noticed any smudging, however I don’t apply to my bottom lashes. Washing them off with a wash cloth and plenty of warm water works well enough. I do find it doesn’t take it all off, so you might need a cleanser to be completely clean.

PROS:

  • Brown is softer than black, so can be worn for those who need it
  • Non irritating
  • No strong scent
  • Holds a curl
  • Doesn’t clean off as easy as some mascaras I’ve tried (this is a good thing for those who need smudge proof)

CONS:

  • Not a thickening formula
  • Can clump lashes together if you apply too much
  • Probably not waterproof
  • Not vegan

Final word:

I’m going to be completely honest, I don’t use this that much because my lashes are already black. Coating them with brown makes them fade a little and I quite like a long, fluttery lash look. However, if you want an eye look that is a little more subdued or black doesn’t suit you then, I would definitely try it.

Natural Almond Oil Mascara in Black

Ingredients:

Sweet Almond (Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis) Oil, Beeswax, Carnauba (Copernicia Cerifera) Wax, Palm Kernel Wax, Soybean (Glyicine Soja) Seed Wax, Calcium Stearate, Isoamyl Laurate, Isopropyl Palmitate, Mamey (Pouteria Sapota) Oil, Palm (Elaeis Guineensis) Oil, Palmitic Acid, Avocado (Persea Gratissima) Oil, Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Orange (Citrus Aurantium Dulcis) Oil, Lemon (Citrus Medica Limonum) Oil, Bergamot (Citrus Bergamia) Oil, CI 77499 / Iron Oxide Black

*NOT VEGAN

Expiration:

Not specified on packaging

Pricing:

$29.95 AUD for 10g or 0.35oz.

Packaging:

almond-mascara

Exactly the same tube and wand as the All-Day Sunflower Oil Mascara.

Scent:

I actually can’t smell essential oils at all, which is great. Again the waxes and oils are unmasked, so you will smell those. It’s not a lingering smell.

Texture:

It feels quite thin, but I feel that it applies thicker than the All-Day Sunflower Oil Mascara. This could just be the fact that it’s black.

Application:

You’ll find that it’s easy to apply as it’s not too wet or thick.

Opacity:

This is a true black mascara.

Colour Purchased: Black

Endorsed by beauty editors, this best-seller is the original natural mascara that launched the Ere Perez range. Smudge-proof, water resistant and made with the highest quality ingredients

By far the most used mascara I have, simply because it works. It makes my lashes long and glossy black. I don’t like to apply a lot, because I don’t have heaps of lashes and too much will clump them together. Sometimes there are also a few small clumps, so I always comb them through. When I put it on at the start of the day, it’s exactly the same at the end. There’s no smudging and I can wear it on my lower lashes as well.

The one drawback? It’s EXTREMELY hard to take off. It’s not sold as waterproof but it might as well be. It is the most waterproof, natural mascara I’ve ever used. Of course this is great when you don’t want it to budge. When it comes to removing it though? Not so much. I hate rubbing my eyes and I just can’t take this off without being a bit rough.

*UPDATE*

You don’t need fancy makeup removers, you need oil! I have found that using Jojoba Oil is perfect. I put some on my fingers and then lightly rub them over my lashes. Both mascaras come right off and once I’ve rinsed away any oil my eyes are completely bare!

PROS:

  • Budge proof formula
  • True black
  • Lengthening formulation

CONS:

  • Not vegan
  • Very hard to remove
  • A little clumpy (with the more you apply)

Final word:

This is not my every day mascara as I can’t take it off easily. I do like it for nights out, or if I know I will be out all day and I need my eyelashes curled and set all day.

*VEGAN

Expiration:

Not specified on product

Pricing:

$25.95 for a standard pencil

Packaging:

Looks like a standard pencil with a silver lid.

Scent:

None

Texture:

Feels quite smooth and is not heavy.

Application:

If the tip isn’t sharp, this doesn’t apply well. It pulls on the eyelid and I feel that always sharpening is a waste of product.

Opacity:

With a little pressure you can achieve a good, opaque swatch of colour. Lightly applied you can achieve a softer smokier line.

Colour Purchased: Brown

A must-have for everyone, this great dark brown pencil delivers perfect lines to expertly frame your eyes. A soothing jojoba oil formula, natural and excellent for sensitive eyes

Even though my hair is black, I find that brown suits me better because black appears so harsh. I feel that a lot of product is wasted because the tip needs to be sharp to apply smoothly. As soon as it’s a little blunt it’s harder to apply and needs more pressure than I like to use on my eyes. It can be smudged for a smoky effect.

PROS:

  • Nice, rich colour
  • It’s not a light brown so it still suits my skin without looking too light
  • Long lasting
  • Not easy to rub off without water

CONS:

  • Pencil needs to be sharp for smooth application
  • Easy to clean off with warm water

Final Word:

I would probably repurchase based on the fact that this doesn’t budge and the colour is great for me. I would prefer it to be a bit creamier and easier to apply, even with a blunt end.

That’s it for the eye products I currently own.

Which ones have you used and do you enjoy using them?
