I was really pleased to discover Flora and Fauna online a natural boutique that offer samples of Ere Perez foundation. They charge 5.41 AUD and free shipping. This is about £2.50. In addition, for every AUD spent, you earn a loyalty point.
As it was coming all the way from Australlia it wasn't the quickest order. When it arrived it was in a bubble wrap envelope and came with a handwritten card "Hi Alison, thanks for shopping at Flora and Fauna. Hope you love the sample foundations, F&F x". It was a sweet personal touch and my two samples were in neatly labelled screw top pots (I can probably reuse) and packaged in a cotton gift bag.
There was a small card with the web address and details about Flora & Fauna shop "Natural, cruelty free beauty and skin care. Over 40 luxurious local and global brand. seasonal beauty boxes. Shop, vegan, organic, local". There was a green theme throughout.
The Ere Perezfoundation is exactly the texture I was looking for. It's thick enough to even out your complexion but fluid enough to blend easily.
I only really wanted to try the shade Light but the shades came as a pair so I had Light/Medium for comparison. I didn't feel there was much difference in the two shades. Sadly I felt both shades were too dark for me.
It's a real shame because I really wanted to like this. The foundation ticks all my boxes for everything I want but if it is too dark. I don't want to look like I've been tangoed which is even worse for a redhead (Orange hair, orange face - nooooo!).
I did try it on my wrist so another day I'll try it out on my face and see if that works better. However, for now... It's top marks to Flora & Fauna and a no to Ere Perez for pale skin.
