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
