I love a good beauty product with a plus. Pluses claim to add moisture, or even skin tone or provide leprechaun protection you can trust. The two Ere Perez lip products I'm covering here each have their own plus. One contains 'Rich Olive Oil', the other 'Real Rosehip', and both claim moisturising and smoothing properties.

Available from April (so today!), the Rich Olive Oil Lipsticks are moderately pigmented lipstick, which I did find moisturising and creamy. They have a shine finish and, yes, feel a little oily on my lips which I didn't mind. My favourite of the eight available is Surprise, a bright hot pink. Ere Perez says it's a matte shade, but I really didn't think so - it's got a shiny finish on both my arm swatch and lips. The other shade I tried was Dance, a red-bronze and not a colour suitable for me at all, way too brown. It's a very 'mum' shade and I'll be passing it on to my own mum to try.

Slightly off topic, it's rare that you get to meet the people behind the brand. Often they're very behind the scenes and invisible to consumers, or on the other hand, way too involved in being 'the face' of their brand and IMHO bordering on obnoxious. Right, Mr Perdis?
Then you get someone like Mexican, but now Australia based Ere Perez, who isn't the face of her namesake range, but is clearly involved in everything from the ingredients and formula to the naming of shades. I like this. I mention this, because it's one of the few times I've met someone who is so very passionate about their product. When I went to the launch for her new lippies, I was blown away by how incredibly into it she was. Bubbly, all about the enthusiastic hand waving and full of personal anecdotes for testing her natural products on her own babies (edible and toxin-free makes for a fun toy!). Based solely on her vivacious personality, I want to buy all her things, with the Clever Carrot Cheek and Lip Balm next on my list for natural goodies. Plus Ere is just plain adorable. Like baby sloth meet Paul Rudd meet basket of day-old kittens cute.

These products was gifted to me by Ere Perez at a product launch. Ere Perez has in no way influenced my review and opinions are my own. It is also my opinion that baby sloths should be mandatory gifts for people with a chronic case of the grumps. Just try and not let your heart melt cuddling one of these little guys.
