WET 'N' WILD BLUSH PEARLESCENT PINK




Wet 'n' Wild Blush (UK Shopping link)

Hi lovelies! Yet another US beauty product review for you all today! Today, I'm talking about this gorgeous blush from Wet 'n' Wild. You can get Wet 'n' Wild online in the UK (but there is quite a difference in price), but as far as I'm aware, you can't really get it in stores. So, needless to say this was a brand I'd never really used before, but I'd heard so much about their products on youtube videos and US beauty blogs, so I was really excited to receive this in my swap with Ashley!

This blush is a totally gorgeous peachy pinky colour, it's not exactly coral, but it's definitely a more warm toned pink, which I love (I don't do blue toned cheek colour!). While the products appears to have a lot of shimmer in the pan, it's more subtle on the cheeks, so it gives a pretty glow rather than giving disco ball face vibes. The colour itself is gorgeous, it's a little more muted and not quite as bright as some of my other blushes, making it perfect for the coming Autumn months as I tend to tone down the colours of my makeup i the cooler weather. Side note - who's getting excited for Autumn? I just love the Autumn, I'm looking forward to the cooler weather so I can start wearing hats and boots again. Though guaranteed I'll be moaning about it come November, so fickle.

Anyway, back to the point. I don't know a great deal about Wet 'n' Wild, but from what I understood it was a fairly cheap, drugstore brand. So to be honest, while I'd heard great things, I wasn't really sure what to expect pigmentation wise. However, I can confirm that blush is incredibly pigmented, so much so I actually have to be very careful not to end up with way too much on my face! It doesn't have the best texture of any blush I've ever used, I actually find it a little chalky, but as it's such a pretty colour and so well pigmented, I can forgive it. It doesn't appear chalky on the skin anyway so it's fine! While I love this colour on my fair-but-currently-lightly-tanned skin, I think it would look fab on girls paler or darker than me. However I do think it could be a little harsh on very fair skin if you got a bit brush happy, however used carefully I think it would look fab on pretty much any skintone.

I don't have much to say on the packaging, it's basic and fairly cheap looking, which to be honest is probably why I questioned the quality before trying (book by it's cover, whoops!), but I do like the fact that it's got a clear lid because it means I can see the colour through it. This would be a lot more useful if I actually had more than one of these blushes and actually needed to tell the difference, but if I did have a collection, the clear lid would make life a lot easier at 7 in the morning and that's always a bonus. Speaking of which, after applying my makeup at 7 in the morning, it's still there, albeit slightly faded when I get in from work at about 5:30pm, so that's a good 10 hours plus, which is amazing. As for the brush that comes with it, I'm sure I don't need to tell you that it's useless, as are most brushes that come with products like this. I think it'd be okay if you wanted to top up during the day, but I found it way too rough for the product itself and it picked up way too much product and felt kind of scratchy. Give me Real Techniques any day.

Overall, I'd recommend these blushes if you can get your hands on them as they're cheap and cheerful and provide excellent pigmentation and lasting power.

So, what do you think? Have you tried anything from Wet 'n' Wild? What are your thoughts?
