Review / Ere Perez Chamomile Eyeshadow Palette in Gorgeous

Thursday, 29 March 2018

As time goes on, I’m less and less inclined towards bolder makeup looks. That isn’t to say I don’t still love experimenting with it, trying new products or playing around with wild eyeshadow and lip looks every now and again, but on the daily I gravitate towards more natural looks. That’s where Ere Perez, one of my favourite brands, comes in to save the day.

As well as providing more natural, gentle ingredients in their products, Ere Perez’s makeup also leans towards fresher, more natural looks, too. When I saw that they also offered palettes, I knew that they would be a perfect option to revitalise my makeup routine and add a new every day, more subtle palette into the mix. They have a selection of different neutral palettes in various shade ranges, but all feature natural, earthy colours that compliment all kinds of skin tones.

I decided to go for the Chamomile Eyeshadow Palette in ‘Gorgeous’*, which contains six shades of balanced, warm-toned neutrals ranging from a sheer, peachy satin to a more chocolatey brown. The palette contains 3 matte and 3 shimmer shades, and according to Ere Perez is also perfect for sensitive eyes due to the calming chamomile used in the ingredients. Given how delicate and important the eye area is, using soothing, gentle ingredients in your eye products is certainly a good idea in my book, and as someone who suffers terribly with sensitive, watery eyes I’m so relieved that we’re seeing so many more options like this for our cosmetics.

On to the review. The packaging is typical of what I’ve seen from Ere Perez’s new rebranded items so far; it’s made of a sturdy white, sleek plastic and is very pleasing to the eye. It closes securely, and it doesn’t pop open or feel as though it could damage while bouncing around inside my makeup bag during travel. It’s also very compact compared to other similar palettes I own – this one is much better for when you’re tight on space in your makeup bag. Obviously aesthetics aren’t everything, but my Ere Perez products are some of my favourite to carry around or keep out for regular use – they just look so simple and elegant and picture-perfect on a dressing table. Not that I have one, since I have to do my makeup on the floor of our lounge!

Unfortunately I’ve lost the little slip that came with the palette that detailed the names of each shade, so bear with me! From left to right, we have a soft peachy, skin-coloured shimmer; a light matte very light brown, a matte warmer brown, a shimmer warmer brown, an antique gold shimmer and a soft, cooler brown. Each shadow compliments each other very well, and the palette can be used to create a variety of day and night looks without the need for further shadows, so it’s perfect for travel or overnight stays due to its versatility as well as its size.

The texture of each shadow is extremely soft and effortless to blend. When swatching on my fingers, they feel silky smooth and have no hint of chalkiness. They also don’t create any fall out, which further adds to their positive points for those with sensitive eyes (I don’t know about you, but fallout when applying eyeshadow has always been a real killer for me when doing my makeup).

My favourite shades in particular are the left-most, right-most and the antique gold shades. Each glide onto the eyelid like a dream, and create a beautiful, subtle wash of natural colour. My only complaint about these shadows would be that they are definitely not as opaque as other shadows I own, so either require a great deal of building up to achieve your desired opacity, or else are better left for more natural looks. Given that I haven’t been favouring bolder eyeshadow looks lately, this has turned out to be perfect for me and helps to refine and uplift my face in a way that looks more elegant and put together, but nonetheless understated and like my face, but better.

If you’re a very creative, artistic makeup artist who likes your makeup to be as loud and proud as you are, this probably isn’t the palette for you – there are other neutral eyeshadow palettes out there that have a wider colour range and better opacity for creating original and exciting looks. However, if you’re in the market for a simple, neutral palette that will simply help you feel more polished and serve you in a variety of different situations, if you’re someone with sensitive eyes and skin, or if you’re a beginner who wants an easy-to-use palette that doesn’t need you to be the queen of blending to achieve a beautiful end result, then Ere Perez’s Chamomile Eyeshadow Palettes are certainly an option I can recommend.

At £26.50 Ere Perez’s Chamomile Eyeshadow Palettes are similarly priced to many higher end palettes of the same size and shade ranges, so it is something I consider a worthy investment for myself, at least. This little natural, cruelty free and vegan beauty has been the perfect addition to my makeup bag as I shift towards subtler looks and is one that I’ve been reaching for again and again. If you’re interested, you can nab the Gorgeous palette or one of their other shade selections over at
