Wet n Wild really does offer great products at even better prices. The powder blushes are an awesome product and I was finally able to get my hands on all four of them. Every store I went to always seemed to be sold out of two of the colors. These blushes are incredibly pigmented and a little goes a very long way. I purchased the Wet n Wild Color Icon blushes in Berry Shimmer, Heather Silk, Mellow Wine and Pearlescent Pink (as shown in order above and below).
I prefer applying these blushes with the Real Techniques blush brush since it blends the color onto my cheeks effortlessly. The quality is a bit different than say something on the higher end such as NARS- a lot more fallout and can be a little chalky. But I find with the right brush and a light hand they apply beautifully. Plus at $2.99 each, you really can’t go wrong.
This is the darkest of all four colors and really gives the most pigmentation. You have to use this shade with a VERY light hand as it can go on a little strong. But once blended out it leaves a beautiful rosy color on the cheeks.
This is the only matte color out of the four and reminds me of a few MAC blushes. This is also very pigmented and should be used with a light hand. The matte rose color would look great on just about every skin tone.
This was the first color I purchased and I loved it so much I had to try out every color. Mellow Wine gives a great mauve hue to the cheeks and works with an makeup look. I especially like pairing this with a brown smokey eye.
This is hands down my favorite blush out of the four. You could say it is slightly similar to NARS Deep Throat but even lighter. It has a perfect sheen to it. Pearlescent Pink looks great on those days when I wear lighter, natural eye makeup.
Swatched (heavily) from left to right: Berry Shimmer, Heather Silk, Mellow Wine, Pearlescent Pink.
If you haven’t tried the Wet n Wild Color Icon Blushes I HIGHLY recommend giving them a try. You really can’t beat the quality for the price. I use these quite a bit and they’re great for traveling since they’re so inexpensive!
