After looking at all the raving reviews here, I went out to go get this myself. It really is amazingly cheap and super, super pigmented. My problem with this is that it is actually a little too pigmented for me; while I have pretty tan asian skin, I felt like I had to be super careful dipping my brush into the blush or else as soon as I put it on my cheeks, I would have one spot on my cheek that was super pink, even after blending it out. Those who are used to applying blush with a light hand will probably be just fine, but I actually prefer to be able to swirl the brush around in the blush a little bit ( maybe I'm just being weird). The packaging is also pretty bad, btw; the top of the case broke off for me, so I can't even put it in my makeup bag now unless I tape it. And once you get the blush, this is pretty obvious, but the brush is cheap and awful. The one I use for this blush is the ELF studio powder brush .
The color has a bit of shimmer, but it isn't chunky glitter-ish or anything. I really like it as a natural looking everyday blush. As far as staying power goes, I would say that it lasts for quite a few hours, but the color slowly fades throughout the day. Pretty good product; I would recommend it because it IS pretty, pigmented, and long lasting, not to mention it has soo much product that it will probably last me forever...but definitely not HG or anything.
$2.99 for blush? Yeah, okay.
I picked this up expecting it to perform like a cheap, crappy, poorly-pigmented glitter-blush. The rose color in the pan was gorgeous, though, so I couldn't resist-- at the worst, I figured I'd just use it as a pink shimmery highlighter.
Except when I applied it with my usual brush (the included brush is, predictably, useless), I ended up with a dark rose streak across my cheek. This blush is WAY more pigmented than I expected, especially given the price. And the shimmer, while "chunky-glittery" in the pan, translates to a beautiful glow on the face-- I don't know where all the chunky glitter goes, but I am pleased to report that it does not end up on my cheeks.
I don't know when wet 'n' wild became a legit makeup brand... it used to be my "play makeup," for Halloween, etc. But while the prices haven't changed, the quality is unbelievably improved. To be sure, this brand still has a few duds, but $2.99 for a pretty blush that I can actually incorporate into my makeup collection? I am not going to complain about the odd disappointment here and there.
Since I literally just applied it, I can't say much about its lasting power. Provided it doesn't disappear in the next few minutes, I will definitely be buying again.
This is a lovely medium toned pink with gold shimmers on it.I thought I couldn't wear pink blush with my redish cheeks but this goes on so natural so perfect I certainly recommend regardless of skin tone.This is super pigmented so you really don't need to use much esp with this products lasting powder.
This shimmers do not show up as much as they do in the pan so don't be frightened off because of the shimmer.
Horrible. I am surely shocked at all these good reviews. I put this on one day and the day after there was a trail of big red zits all down my cheecks. In my opinion, it's not worth the risk, nor purchasing.
I got this blush today and even though I'm 17, I haven't experimented with makeup as much as many girls my age so this is my first blush and all I can say is that I'm in love. My mom personally loves Clinique products and I've used hers for a while but this product is absolutely gorgeous. For $2.99, you can't go wrong with this blush. It adds a natural flush to your cheeks, especially if your a more of a tan skin tone. The brush that comes with this however is not completely as useless as a lot of reviewers have said. Using one of my mom's throwaway Clinique blush brushes, I swept a little bit on and was blown away by the amount of pigmentation this blush has! A little really does go a long way for this. Going back to the brush the product comes with, if you apply too much on by accident or you don't like the gold shimmer to it (which looks gorgeous but some aren't fond of shimmer), you cab give a quick sweep and you're good to go! Other than the fact I'm in love, the only con to this is that it's a very loose powder and you have to be careful you don't get the product all over the place. Other than that, this has quickly become a favorite product of mine. Definitely repurchase!
This Blush is SO beautiful. Its pink with a hint of gold. Its perfect for ANY skin color. Its super pigmented and the price is so cheap. I got mine for 2$ in rite aid. I will deff stock up on this blush! <3 it continued >>
I bought this product expecting a gorgeous pink blush, I swatched it on my finger when I got home and it looked gorgeous! But then when I put it on......it was a bunch of gold shimmer and no pink? I dont know what happened if I applied it with the wrong brush or what ? But I applied it like any other blush and it came out horrendous!
I have been lusting after nars-deep throat. But having spent loads on all my cosmetic cravings in the past couple of months, i decided to hold back. pearlescent pink is a great dupe for deep throat. it's a rosy peach-pink that is actually the perfect shade for any skin tone. a must have!!
I definitely recommend getting this blush as an everyday go-to blush. It's a very pretty medium-deep pink with a soft finish. It is highly pigmented, so apply it with a light hand lest you wind up looking like Raggedy Ann. I don't use the brush that comes with the packaging, but I almost never do for any blush or eyeshadow that I buy.
I will never need another blush again! This blush is highly pigmented, I don't use the little brush that came with it though. A light dusting on your favorite blush brush is all it takes, you might even want to blow on the brush before applying because the color is strong. However, applied lightly this gives a gorgeous in-from-the-cold flush that is a deep pinky-peach with a shimmer. The only complaint I have is that the blush particles get everywhere when I use it but that is a small price to pay.
