REVIEW: Seraphine Botanicals Blush

Packaging - 4 (very good)
Texture - 5 (excellent)
Longevity - 1 (bad)
Pigment - 2 (not very good)
Wear - 1 (bad)
Overall:


Let's just get right to it! Seraphine Botanicals as a brand are supposed to be high end and natural. Their website boasts that their products are 99% natural, gluten free, free of  phthalates and parabens, they contain no mineral oils and are vegan. I was super pumped to try this out. This is the shade Ginger and Gold, I also tried the shade Mangosteen and Gold.

I love the packaging. I almost gave it 4 starts because it is a little basic (like there is just no wow factor) but I realized there was no category that lends itself to the fact that this product is all natural, so I bumped it up a star for that. The packaging is simple and sturdy, but the white looks high end and clean. It does have classic screw off lid, so some might not love that because you may loose the lid. I also like the texture, it isn't grainy at all (which is common in other botanical cosmetics). It is very smooth and it has that light weight feeling on your skin.

So here is the bad. It is low pigmentation which means you have to put on a lot of layers for it to show up (which is bad for the longevity of the product) and you have to reapply regularly (so poor wear, and that does factor into the longevity score too). I understand that this blush is supposed to be very light and add depth or warmth as opposed to being a pigmented and bold blush.  But whether it was alone or on top of another shade I couldn't see any result without at least 4 applications. For this reason I would not recommend it.
