Wet'n'Wild Pearlescent Pink Blush

Wet'n'Wild Pearlescent Pink Blush ($3)
A little while ago (maybe a month or so) I read a post over at Jane's blog (Life's Entropy) where she had side-by-side swatches of the Wet'n'Wild Pearlescent Pink blush and NARS Deep Throat. They looked identical! I've always wanted Deep Throat but put off purchasing it because it costs $28 dollars. I made a mental note to purchase Pearlescent Pink next time I was at the drugstore. I ended up getting it and I'm quite happy with it. I'll keep the review short because there's not much to say about it. Pearlescent Pink is a shimmery pink blush. The effect is very pretty, the shimmers don't look offensively frosty on the face. The blush is soft and pigmented. The only downside is that it's very powdery. It kicks up a considerable amount of excess powder when I swirl my brush in it. That's the same (and only) problem I encountered with the WnW Eyeshadows. In the end, this blush does what it's supposed to and it only costs $3. For the price I can definitely overlook having to blow the excess powder off. If Wet'n'Wild expanded the range, I would definitely purchase more colors. Right now I'm not interested in any of the other blushes they have. Anyways, Pearlescent Pink is a great budget blusher.
Pros: Pretty color, soft texture, good color payoff, affordable
Cons: Powdery, flimsy packaging

  7. Not sure if you have ever commented on this - but do you fill in your eyebrows - or are they god-given? If you do, you must, must, must write a post on this. If not - I will just admire the luck of genetics and figure out how to con my way into the look.

    1. Haha, thank you so much! I fill in my brows 90% of the time so yes, they are filled in in this post. I don't change their shape when I fill them in, I just use a brown eyeshadow (MAC's Charcoal Brown) to fill in the sparseness and gaps. I'll have to do a post on it to explain it better. xx

  9. I actually have this blush! But I had no idea it was a dupe for NARS, I've actually wanted the NARS one for a while, so maybe I'll dig out my WnW one and see if it fixes my craving. :) xx

  14. I remember that post by Jane and yes, the swatches did look identical!! I love that you used her split screen thing to show the blush as well (this post just has Jane oozing out of it haha)! I'm sure she's flattered :)
    And this looks so absolutely lovely on you... I think you just reminded me that I need this blush in my life!

    1. Haha, I told her I would have to adopt the split screen because it's really effective. xx

  15. Such a pretty colour and I can't believe how similar it is to Nars Deep Throat. I so wish we could get the w&w products easily in the UK. x

  16. ive never tried wnw blushes, or anything from them for that matter!

  23. I love this colour so much, I've never owned anything by wet and wild before but I feel that needs to change, and quickly! I've been on the lookout for a pink blush, but i feel my search has just ended x

  27. This looks like such a pretty colour, I'm not a fan of the packaging but for such an affordable price I shouldn't complain too much. Wish these were easy to get in the UK!

  28. This looks beautiful on you! Pretty sure I might own this haha, I'm gonna have to pull it out and give it a go :) x

  29. What a soft, pretty shade! Really brightens up your face. NARS Deep Throat is maybe my favourite blush ever, but this definitely looks like a more affordable version :)

  35. I also have the WnW Pearlescent pink blush and I think that its a good color on all skin tones, some compare it to NARS Orgasm, which I disagree with in terms of texture and level of "peach", but I do agree that its CLOSE enough to where MOST people can't tell a difference. Love the level of pigmentation :)

  36. I'm in love with your eyelook, what eyeshadows did you use?
