Wild Rose is one of the glossimers that is part of the Spring 2009 collection. It is a mid-tone pink-rose color with silver sparkles and shimmer. In the tube, it looks more mauve, but on the lips, it shows up as a warm pink, and it really warms up the face and just looks so pretty. Today, I paired it with NARS cream blush in Penny Lane, but I think it would be gorgeous with Chanel Joues Contraste blush in Rose Petale, or even a brighter pink bush like Narcisse.

Now, for reference, compared with some other Glossimers in the same tonal family: This is less "metallc-y" and sheerer than Blizzard... I would say it is actually closest to Sarong. While Sarong is more cool-brown toned, Wild Rose is warmish pink-toned. So, if you found Sarong too brown or cool, try Wild Rose.

Can this color be duped? You might be able to get *close*... I actually think Revlon's Glossy Rose is similar, though Glossy Rose is a tad brighter, and plus, the texture is totally different. Some other glosses that might be close are MAC VGV (though VGV is browner, and on me, closer to Sarong) and BE Buxom Lips in Dolly, though Dolly is more mauvey. So... I don't think the color is 100% dupable... and, therefore, worth the splurge. I just love the texture of the glossimers - sort of light-weight, yet moisturizing.

Hope that helps!! continued >>
