SWEET AS A NUT // Ere Perez Natural Almond Oil Mascara

Received as a birthday present last month from my in-laws, this mascara is thicker and packs a little more of a dramatic punch to my usual daytime mascara (Green People's Volumising Mascara), and I think that's down to a different wand-shape, with wider spacing between the rows of bristles allowing more space for the inky rich mascara to sit between, thus transferring to the lash. 

There's a sweet smell to this product - one that I'm not overly keen on if I'm honest - and I was surprised to the size of the mascara is quite small in comparison to what others are offering at a cheaper price. 

But the rich, inky blackness is worth the while requiring less time to build up upon than other mascaras and as per usual, I'm a big fan of Ere Perez's clean branding and pure ethos.

 

Here's a few snaps of me wearing it:

PERFECT PEEPERS // Volumising Mascara - GREEN PEOPLE

Last week I talked about my exploration into organic mascaras.. Having not yet made the transition across. And this week I’ve managed to get my mits onto the Volumising Mascara by fellow Sussex Locals, Green People.

Full of natural pigments and dowsed in Vitamin E, Sunflower Oil & Organic Beeswax, there is a big difference when applying this inky, sleek little number to my lashes first time.

Slick and not claggy, I was surprised to feel that my lashes seemed instantly nourished and full - rather than bogged down and flakey. Every comb allowed a silken coat; gliding on much smoother than what I am used to and the build up was very effective.

Non-messy or sticky, the wand holds more rigidity than a bushy, bristley wand - but I think this works in it’s favour for defining the lashes and coating them evenly.

I wasn’t expecting definition from a volumising mascara but I’ve been extremely impressed with the definition of my lashes on application - each individual lash seemingly more defined rather than just becoming more heavy upon loading. And they remained at their pre-application curled state so I didn’t need to re-curl to open the eyes up again.

There is an admirable simplicity in the packaging; a glossy black tube with exactly what it needs to say highlighted in a zero fuss font. Plus all the ingredients on the packet explained in a neat little box so you know exactly where you stand - and that is a luxe vegetarian, cruelty free, organic piece.

HELLO YELLOW // Light Yellow Colour Supplement - LUSH Cosmetics

I wasn’t sure what to make of LUSH’s make up range at first.

Would it stand up to the task?

Would it be drying and make my skin dull?

Thankfully exactly the opposite.

This foundation includes a delicate rose petal infusion within the ingredients that reduces redness - which is immediately noticeable - and a smooth, light consistency induces a subtle glow underneath makeup.

For me, it’s more like a tinted moisturiser in its coverage than a foundation - so if you're looking for something a little more concealing, I wouldn’t say this is the one for you.

But I do get a lot of sweet compliments about my skin and I swear it's down to a little dab of this - under my eyes, chin and nose - first thing within my beauty regime to add a subtle dewy finish.
