Aveda Hibiscus Petal Essence Face Accents
Aveda Hibiscus Petal Essence Face Accents

Aveda Hibiscus Petal Essence Face Accents ($24.00 for 0.30 oz.) is described as a “nude highlighter to soft coral to bright coral.” Together, the blush swirls to create a subtly pink-tinted coral with a soft, beige-champagne shimmer-sheen finish and warm undertones. Tarte Curious is pinker. Too Faced Sweethearts is lighter and pinker. bareMinerals The Natural High has a stronger gold sheen. MAC Fleet Fast is darker. NARS Deep Throat is similar. Because this is a split-pan blush, it can be applied lighter/darker depending on how you swirl your brush. The individual shdaes consist of a deep, rich orange-red with a satin finish; light-medium rosy beige with a satin finish; and champagne beige with a champagne sheen.

This blush is easiest to use altogether or concentrating on two of the three shades, because each strip of color just isn’t wide enough to accommodate most blush brushes. It is supposed to ve scented with lavender, though I couldn’t really smell it in the pan or on. All three individual shades were very, very pigmented, so when applied together, the result is just as rich in color payoff, but the texture is very soft and smooth. It can be sheered out to a lighter color or built up for something more intense. It has a delicate satin finish, so there’s just barely enough shimmer to give cheeks a natural glow but nothing frosted or metallic, which means pores are not emphasized either. Hibiscus lasted eight and a half hours on me, and I saw signs of fading after nine hours of wear.

It's a very richly pigmented blush, and if you like the idea of being able to lighten/darker the general color, this is one to consider. I only wish that the strips were a bit wider to better use them individually!

    So glad to read pores are not emphasized, I’m liking this color.

    I love it when you bring in some other brands (than the usual) into the mix. Especially when they are accessible ones.

  2. I have this one as well and I like it a lot. I wish it would be bigger though.

  3. This is really pretty! I may have to go into Aveda and pick it up!

    Based on the looks alone, I would say no way – but this is gorgeous, especially on you!

  5. I steered clear of this because of the one shade looking so bright and orange in the pan. It translates pinker than I expected. It’s lovely!

  6. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Rebecca becca

    Love this on you!

    I didn’t think I’d like it from the picture and the swatches, but I really like it on you, Christine. I think it’d be too red for me, but it’s a lot prettier than I was expecting.

  8. These colours are very pretty!

    I love how natural it looks on you, Christine. Beautiful!

    love orange eyeshadow and blush

  10. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Alison Alison

    Not my kind of colour (I don’t do orange ANYTHING) but I LOVE this sort of thing! The strips of different colour (and the great formula) I can definitely get behind. So versatile.

    I just love this blush! It took a while to get the hang of it since it is soooo pigmented and I have fair skin but now it is happiness everyday. I also really love Aveda’s Bronze Glow…. And love the fact that it is talc-free etc….

    Is that promotional packaging? It looks terribly cheap.

    • No, they’re sold as pans so you can put them into palettes.

      • Liz

        Well, if that’s the case, the product should be less expensive in my opinion, especially since they want so much for the compact.

        • VickyM

          I agree, when I first looked at the image of the compact, without scrolling down I though it was a 1 or 3 dollar product, and when I realized it was 24 I was surprised. The packaging is horrible if you can call that plastic container packaging at all, also not everyone has pallete pans available for this blush, most people I know don´t have any and neither do I. Honestly some of the Bobby Brown blushes cost almost the same or even Mac blushes. I would´n buy this.

          • tamara

            Aveda’s prices are expensive because they are natural. I believe they are 93% natural and they revamped their entire skincare line and makeup i believe so that it doesn’t contain parabins. Its a great brand and concept!

  13. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Amy Amy

    Gorgeous color and I like that it’s striped! Though the price makes me hesitate…

  14. At first glance, I thought it was an Inglot rainbow eyeshadow.

  15. Ellen

    Is this anything like Benefit’s sugarbomb? I like blushes that are more on the peachy side, but this looks like it might be more red.

  16. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Nugget Nuggetchu

    I honestly didnt know this blush was so pretty! I work at a Aveda spa and we have the full Aveda makeup line, yet i tend to steer clear of them because they tend to be more on the sheer and sparkley side which caters to the more standard lady.

    I believe we have this blush clearanced out at half price as well. Will have to check it out!!

  17. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Katherine Katherine

    You look adorable with your hair up! I do like this blush.

  18. Oh wow–I didn’t expect it to be this pretty! I have never tried any of Aveda’s makeup products before. I am curious now…

  19. I like how the trio is all in one — as opposed to bringing around three separate containers in your purse!

    They seem to have a nice color payoff.

  20. Um, INGLOT Rainbow Shadows, anyone?

  21. Manny

    I used to work for an Aveda salon and absolutely could NOT stand their makeup. Most of it lacked pigmentation, had terrible, chalky consistencies, and didn’t show up on the skin. They always had really interesting collections though. Had their products performed well, I would have been all over them. I’m REALLY excited that this blush works so well though, I have to go out and try it!
