Sevi Eco Vegan Minerals: Flower Powder Blush Review + Swatches

This past weekend I attended DC Vegfest: an annual vegan food celebration at Navy Yard in Washington, D.C.  Among the fantastic foods offered there, a few venders who sold vegan, cruelty-free cosmetics caught my eye.  I grabbed three of the Sevi flower powder blushes while I was there - they were only $4 a piece at the booth!



Like a lot of indie powder products, these blushes came in small sifter containers, and they each had 2.00 grams of product.  That's quite a lot for the price you're paying!


The colors I got were rose petal, pink heather, and peach blossom.  They are made of iron oxides, mica, vegetable lecithin, L-lysine, and they may contain zinc oxide.  They're also manufactured in the USA, which is a positive.


These are absolutely GORGEOUS in the container.  You can see that peach blossom has a little bit of glitter, while the other two don't.



Swatched on NW40 skin, no primer.  Left to right: Rose petal, pink healther, peach blossom.

Rose petal had fantastic color payoff and wonderful pigment - I will definitely be wearing this a lot in the winter.  Pink Heather, on the other hand, had a very iffy consistency and did not apply well.  It separated on my skin and did not have much color to it.  Peach blossom is easily my favorite out of the bunch - it's very true to color and looks lovely on the skin.  I can see this working for many different skin tones, at many different times of the year.

Rose Petal: 7.5/10
Pink Heather: 5/10
Peach blossom: 7.5/10

Sevi blushes normally retail for £13.49 pounds, but occasionally you can find booths that have them on sale, like I did at VegfestDC this year.  You can get them online here:  http://www.carefreebeauty.eu/face/sevi-mineral-blush

Will you be picking these up?
