Seint Makeup Review: Is It The Cleanest Makeup Brand?

Seint Makeup Review: Is It The Cleanest Makeup Brand?

Read our Editorial Guidelines to learn more about what makes our site the premier resource for online health information.

Seint is one of the most popular makeup brands and has beautiful branding. The brand sells a wide variety of makeup products including foundations of various shades and bronzers. 

But does Seint makeup function better than cheaper options? Does it contain any questionable additive ingredients that may be unhealthy? And how do real users respond to Seint makeup?

In this article we’ll answer all of these questions and more as we share real, unsponsored user reviews of Seint makeup including product demos, and review every ingredient in their most popular products (their foundation and bronzer). We’ll also overview some controversial aspects of the brand’s multi-level-marketing (MLM) status.

Seint Foundation Review

Seint sells two popular foundation products: “Highlight” and “Contour.” Both contain the exact same ingredients, and the coloration differences are achieved with differing levels of iron oxides and ultramarines.

Iron oxides are safe and effective colorant ingredients used in makeup that are a much healthier alternative to artificial dye. Iron oxides are shown in medical research to protect the skin against UV damage.

Ultramarines are dark-hued pigments created from minerals. This category of colorant was found in a medical review to have some heavy metal contamination, though lower levels of contamination than other colorants.

Seint Highlight and Seint Contour also contain the preservative ingredient phenoxyethanol that we recommend avoiding. This ingredient caused toxicity and atrophy to human cells in a test tube study, that we detailed more at length in our Function of Beauty reviews article.

Overall we do not recommend this makeup product from a health perspective, due to the inclusion of ultramarines and phenoxyethanol.

One of the most popular reviews of Seint’s foundation products is published by a YouTube creator named Erin Wygant, whose video has a live demonstration of both the Highlight and Contour products with timestamps:

Seint Makeup Controversy

Seint is an MLM, and many MLMs have a significant amount of controversy surrounding their business practices and how they pay their consultants. Seint is no different in this regard.

One of the most popular YouTube videos highlighting the controversy surrounding Seint comes from a creator called “Isabella Lanter” who analyzes how much Seint “artists” actually make, why their business model is questionable (artists apparently have to buy inventory from the company), and breaks down commentary from a Seint “top leader.”

It’s a very well-researched and engaging video that includes timestamps for individuals who may not have the time to watch the full thing:

Seint Bronzer Review

Seint’s Bronzer contains the same ingredient list as their foundation, with the addition of mica which is a safe and non-toxic colorant that adds texture.

One of the most popular YouTube videos on the Seint bronzer comes from a channel called “Fit Mission Makeup.” The creator shares how to properly use this product along with foundation:

Our Clean Beauty Recommendation

We recommend a product called Ilia True Skin Serum Foundation as our top clean beauty pick for makeup and bronzer.

Like Seint, this product is naturally colored with iron oxides and free of questionable additive ingredients like fragrance and artificial dye that are common in commercial cosmetics.

Ilia’s makeup has natural ingredients beneficial for skin health like aloe vera juice, coconut and jojoba seed oil.

Ilia’s makeup is free of the preservative phenoxyethanol that we documented in Seint and is also free of ultramarines. While it does contain two preservatives (ethylhexylglycerin and sodium benzoate) we consider these to be less harsh options than the preservative in Seint.

We would prefer to recommend a preservative-free makeup product but have not come across one. If we do, we will update this section of the article with that recommendation.

Interested consumers can check out Ilia True Skin Serum Foundation at this Amazon link, where it’s available in many shades.

Conclusion

Seint makeup is a better-formulated and safer option than many commercial makeups. We don’t recommend the product overall due to the inclusion of a preservative ingredient that we recommend avoiding, and a colorant ingredient that was found to contain heavy metals in a medical study.

Consumers seem to rate Seint well from an aesthetic perspective.

There is some controversy surrounding Seint’s business model and payout structure to their business partners, called “artists,” which is unfortunately common with MLM companies.
