Wet n Wild Color Icon Blushes have amazing pigmentation!

March 6, 2013
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.
Berry Shimmer
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.

Heather Silk
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.

Mellow Wine
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.

Pearlescent Pink
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! 
You can purchase Wet n Wild Color Icon Blushes at CVS, Walmart, Walgreens or online here.
