Wet ‘N’ Wild Color Icon Blush in ‘Pearlescent Pink’ – Review, Photos & Swatches

While everyone on the internet is practically discussing and debating about what’s the real color of #thedress, I thought instead of confusing myself, I should just resume blogging. Anyway, I know that this is way delayed, for those of you who are also sick of the dress debate (like moi) then come join me and let’s just talk about makeup. Shall we?

Wet 'N' Wild Color Icon Blush in 'Pearlescent Pink' - Review, Photos & Swatches

Today, I’ll be reviewing the Wet ‘N’ Wild Color Icon Blush in ‘Pearlescent Pink’. This is actually my first Wet ‘N’ Wild blush. I’ve owned their highlighters, bronzers, eyeshadow palettes and lip products but I don’t have any of their blushes. I don’t know why really. I’ve heard tons of great things about their blushes, so I’m definitely excited to put mine to the test.

Product Details/Claims according to WNW Beauty
Sweep on this silky-smooth blush that strikes the perfect balance between a blendable transparent sheen and a radiant pop of maximum color. A special blend of treated nylon powders provides long-lasting color. Dermatologist-tested.


PACKAGING

Similar to other Wet ‘N’ Wild face products, their blushes are just housed in a plast packaging with a clear lid, and a slot for the brushes. And yes, the packaging, does feel cheap and flimsy so you will need to take care of it if in case you take this for traveling. It can also acquire a lot of scratches over time even if it’s just in your storage. This is also something that I forgot to mention in my previous review regarding The Naked Truth eyeshadow palette. The blush brush is okay. You can definitely use it if you’re traveling and you want to fit everything in a small pouch.


SHADE & APPLICATION

Pearlescent Pink is a beautiful warm pink shade with tiny specs of silver in it. I actually thought that the blush can be really intense since WnW products are known for their extreme color payoff. But when I lightly tapped my brush onto the pan and applied it on to my cheeks, It wasn’t as vibrant as I expected, which is not exactly a bad thing because overly pigmented blushes are not really good for beginners. Nevertheless, the blush is still very buildable and very easy to apply/blend.


TEXTURE & PIGMENTATION

Similar to WnW eyeshadows, this blush also very soft and creamy to the touch. This one also has a nice pigmentation and a decent color payoff. Though like I said previously, it may not have an extreme color payoff, it’s exactly what I prefer personally. That way, you won’t have to really be cautious in applying & blending your blush specially if you’re in a hurry. #clowncheeks What I also like about this blush is that it’s not powdery, nor does it look cakey when applied. It doesn’t give me any fall outs so it leaves the packaging clean after every use.


LONGEVITY

This blush lasted on me for more than 4-5 hours depending on where I am. I’ve used this outside while running and so far it lasted for the entire day. Though it might’ve faded a bit since I sweat like crazy, mind you. I also tested this while I was at home, and it lasted me for nearly 5 hours. By then it started to fade.


SCENT, ETC.

Similar to their eyeshadow palettes, Wet ‘N’ Wild Color Icon blushes don’t really have any particular scent. So if you’re not in to scented makeups, you might want to try these out.

I really like this blush because it’s suitable for day to day use. It gives me the right amount of glow that I need and I can freely skip applying a highlighter if I want to.

  • Love this blush! I love how similar it is to NARS Orgasm! I’m just not a fan of the packaging too

    • Yeah, I understand. Sometimes the packaging trumps the quality but you really should try this one. You won’t regret it

  • hannaespiritu

    Shade is so pretty and it looks good on you Ms. Yette. Wet n wild has good makeup products. But maybe they should also work on their packaging as well.

    • Thanks Hannah!

      Yeah, I agree. WnW needs help with their packaging.

  • I think I had mellow wine before but it’s super pigmented so I just gave it to my mom, but for its price, definitely a great buy!

    • Yeah, I had that one too. I gave it to my niece because it was just so pigmented. This one’s not like that. Tama lang

  • I had this in shade of Berry Shimmer. My experience on their Color icon brush is amazing.
    I Must say I’m very impressed! Works great on my pale skin to give my face a touch of color.

    I hope they work on their packaging because they have a good products though.

    PS. I love your skin!

    i havent tried their blush but i read a lot of raves about it my dear.. (most of my read posts were they’re found as dupe for MAC blush and Nars blush) im planning to get one after finishing my mary kay shy blush =)

  • abegaill villacruz

    I love the color though I haven’t tried their blush yet. Maybe the packaging is compensated for its affordable price. But after your review, I think this blush is a great buy. I would try one too.
