Review of Wet 'n' Wild Silk Finish Blush - Mellow Wine 833D by fes_fsa
there's nothing warm about this blush. if you've stayed away from it because it looks warm (like almost all of the other WnW blushes), don't. it goes on a neutral dusty rose. it's matte, sophisticated, and perfect for everyday wear. in fact, this is the only blush i've ever hit pan on (without dropping, LOL). i'd even got to the point where i scraped the edges of the pan, looking for blush residue, it's that good. i first bought this color when i was 14 or 15, it lasted me about 3 years with daily use (yes, it's THAT pigmented and you get .24 oz--double the size of your standard blush and almost the size of a compact), then i didn't buy it again until recently (i'm 25 now) because everyone who carried WnW never had this color (it was always the first one gone). i'd since gone through so many LE and HE blushes, and none of them came even close to this. sure, some have hit HG status (BE's Glee), but that was only because this color wasn't available to me.
i tend to place drugstore cosmetics into 2 catergories: 1. a great buy; and 2. you get what you pay for. this is (and now that they've reformulated their lipsticks with more pigment and lasting power, those too) a prime example of a great buy... and now that they've come out with Pearlescent Pink blush 381D, my HG is a toss-up between this one and 381D.
