In Australia we don’t get many of the good things that come out of Mexico. We get Corona, Jarritos (pineapple is my favourite!) and the little fire cracker that is Ere Perez. Ere was born in Mexico and moved to Australia 15 years ago, but it was exactly 10 years ago that Ere developed her self-titled natural cosmetic line. Ere’s family have worked with natural therapies for generations, and her grandfather still practices natural medicine using the healing properties of plants, so it was bound to happen that Ere would end up working in this field as well. However, it was when she arrived in Australia that she was inspired to create a makeup range that used natural ingredients – marrying her family practice with a passion of her own.
Something I love about Ere Perez is that she has a great skill for taking an every day essential beauty product, such as an eyebrow pencil, and finding a way to create it using only premium natural ingredients. Almond Oil is used in a lot of her products, but I wouldn’t have thought it would be useful in a brow pencil. I put it to the test and reveal my results in this review.
- Light Brown-Grey is the solo colour option. I feared it wouldn’t be suitable for my brow colour or match my skin tone but I found it to be a perfectly suited match. It’s a realistic shade that doesn’t make my eyebrows appear obviously filled in.
- The pencil is capped with a brush at the end. This allows you to brush brow hairs into position as well as soften the drawn-on look that a pencil can leave during application.
- I found the texture of the pencil to be quite creamy which allowed me to draw a rough guide to where I was filling and then tidy the hairs into place with the brush on the lid.
- Tested through all weather extremes, the pencil wore quite well. There was minimal fade throughout the day and I had to remove it each night with the rest of my makeup. This is a positive in my opinion as I only like to do my brows once in the morning and forget about them. Seriously, who has time to touch-up their brows?
What Ere Perez says ….
This unique formula glides on smoothly to fill in or define brows. It dries naturally and the brush included allows you to comb the brows distributing the colour evenly. This tone is perfect for all eyebrows.
