Packaging: 9/10

These cream blushes come in small, cylindrical tubes made of plastic that show the color of the blush inside. The caps slide off and snap shut. The bases twist to push up the product inside.

Quality: 9.5/10

Hibiscus is an incredibly wearable shade. It’s a pink-nude and, once applied to the skin, has a tint of peach to it. It’s the kind of shade that can be paired with any lip or eye color.

The formula of the cream blush is actually pretty solid in the packaging, but it’s surprisingly non-drying on the skin. You can use this product on the lips as well and it brings a little moisture to them. It doesn’t leave an oily or even shiny finish.

The shade wears very well through the day. I had no problems with it becoming patchy or fading.

Ease of Use: 8.75/10

Despite being stiff in the packaging, this blush transfers onto the skin well, though it does require putting some pressure onto the tube. Like many cream blushes, you’re best off applying several thin layers of the blush to help the color blend out evenly.

Price: 9.5/10

For $6.00 you get 0.013 ounces of product. This isn’t a ton of product, but it’s still a great deal for the price.
