I got some of the Ere Perez Pure Rice Powder Blush* as part of my ‘face of natural make up’ for my LoveLula* video (I got it with credit I was rewarded but am reviewing it as if I purchased it myself). You can see the video at: https://youtu.be/OSAWjVOnXxw or see it embedded in my earlier blog post (which links to each of the products).
I don’t tend to wear blush often, but I always feel like it makes a difference to a ‘made up’ look. I was particularly intrigued by this blush as it has two shades that you can use swirled together or independently. It actually says on the box you can use it as a blusher, eye shadow or to add colour to lips with a balm. I’ve only tried it as a blusher so far.
It’s a pure rice powder with minimal ingredients (no GMO) and is vegan and cruelty free (and fragrance free too). There are a number of different shades to choose from and I went for the Rose Tones one which seemed the most suitable for my pale skin.
I really like the packaging – it’s a sturdy product with a good clasp that I trust would stay closed (seems a minor thing but essential for travel and so many blushes are either too difficult or too easy to open!). Having said that, I don’t know about its eco-friendly credentials. It also has a mirror included in the packaging, and it’s one that you can actually use to apply the blush as it does show the whole face.
I’ve been swirling the two colours together using a blush brush to apply this. It’s darker than I was expecting and it’s very pigmented so you really do only need a tiny amount. It doesn’t have much shimmer so is more of a matt effect blush, which I feel means it is suitable for all times of year and for both day and evening wear. It’s a fairly natural shade, definitely a ‘just pinched’ type effect. I’ve found it does wear during the day, though I find this with most blushes.
I like it, but I’m not finding myself reaching for it very often. As mentioned I don’t tend to reach for blush that often anyway, but when I fell in love with an Inika blush I wore that every day as I loved it so much. I don’t love this that much but I’m not sure why.
I probably wouldn’t repurchase this though to be honest I think it will last a long time anyway! I’ve not fallen in love with it as much as some of the other items I’ve tried so although there’s nothing wrong with it I’m not finding myself scouring the Ere Perez brand for other products at the moment (though I have to confess the cream lip and cheek balm* is tempting!).
