This is a beautiful colour in the pan. And for $4 i couldn't resist buying it, but unfortunately this looked way too harsh on my skin even with the lightest application. This is very highly pigmented which is a good thing but for my fair skin it just didn't work out. Too bad.

Before I bought it, I barely gave this blush a second glance at the store. However, now that I own it, I'm in love. Mellow Wine is a totally matte rose color with a hint of peach. I love to wear this when I don't want all the attention to be on my cheeks. Beautiful for a natural look. It's so soft and buttery, and like all Wet 'n' Wild blushes, very pigmented. I use a light hand when I apply it--literally just a tap into the pan--and it looks very natural and pretty on me. I'm really liking this blush!

Holy pigmentation!!! Wet'n'Wild does not play w/ their blushes! The hype is real people. A little goes a long way so don't put too much on your brush and be sure to tap off the excess. I only wish they had more colors! I paid $3 at Walgreens and after trying Pearlescent Pink, I went out and bought Mellow Wine a few days later. My favorite blush before this was Milani Baked Blush ($8) but this has more pigment and last longer, whoop whoop! I will eventually own all four colors. And to anyone who doesn't trust this brand, this blush did not break me out or irritate my skin. WnW is really stepping up their game b/c I love their Megalast polish, Coverall foundation, eyeshadow trios, and Megalast lipstick...and now I'm adding this blush to the list of must haves! If I had to mention one gripe, I wish they got rid of the crappy brush that comes w/ it and used stronger smaller packaging. (The Milani blush has the same problem).

My HG blush, I'm embarrassed to say-- having spent $$$ for NARS and Bobbi Brown blushes in the past. Natural-looking, flatters all skintones, lasts all day. The shade is genius, really; a brick-rose flush that can be built up or scaled back as your complexion demands.
The packaging sucks; you definitely don't want to drop this one on the floor, nor attempt to use the ridiculous doll-sized brush it comes with. Mellow Wine is a pigment MONSTER and requires some practice. I recommend a large, fluffy blush brush (I use EcoTools); TAP onto blush and blow most of the powder off before applying. It's easy to go from "healthy glow" to "tubercular fever" with this one, so tread lightly until you're used to it. Great, great blush!

I absolutely love this! My perfect natural blush shade. It looks a bit too pigmented when it goes on but don't get scared, it's very blendable and easy to sheer out. The shade is a lovely dusky peach with a rose tinge, to my eye. It'll be perfect for you if you're warm-toned and fair. (Just a refresher: warm-toned skin has a yellow tint to it, cool-toned skin has more of a pinkish tint. Warm skin looks great with blush shades described as "peach," "golden pink," or "rose"; cool tones look best in shades described as "baby pink" or "true bright pink," or even "hot pink." I saw that one reviewer of this particular shade said it was "an unflattering/unnatural russet" on her, so she was probably just too cool-toned to pull this shade off.) So: If you've got warm-toned skin and want a perfectly natural flush, get this product! It's really perfect for my kind of complexion. :D

Sorry but just don't get the hype about this blush. I bought this shade as it appeared the most neutral in the available shades and having had great results with their Color Icon Brulee shadow and thought I would give it a whirl. Just a awful slightly warm sunburned looking unatural russety red with a magenta undertone. Texture was ok highly pigmented but only serves to make you look like a clown. Might be nicer on darker skintones though.

*I have the colour icon version of this, for reference*
I ordered this online after hearing so many positive reviews, and it didn't disappoint!
The formulation is way up there with brands like Mac, Benefit etc, it's so pigmented! You really need the lightest hand with this one.
The colour is a great mid-tone pink, not peachy or berry or anything, just straight up pink.It can get just a tad chalky, but once it's applied I don't feel like it comes off that way.
Truly one of the drugstore 'diamond in the rough' products, A+!

i noticed that if iuse a yellow based foundation (i use mineral powder foundation), the color turns to be reddish and if i use a more neutral color of foundation, it keeps its color which is medium rose. in any case, the color is very natural and has great pigmentation. i use elf big stippling brush to apply it and i use it vey vey lightly. it stays all day long on my face. its not powdery at all. very good blush texturewise and colorwise. i would buy it again if i ever finish it!

I luv this gem!

I was hoping this blush would be an exact dupe for Mac's blushbaby but this isn't it. The color comes off more orange on my skintone and not that flattering (I have natural-beige complexion with yellow undertones). Overall, it was just an ok blush and not what I expected. Will not be repurchasing.

This is my new HG blush. It is the perfect color for my fair skin. It is neutral, without being too brown, but isn't too pink either. It is a color that works well on a day-to-day basis and can transition through every season flawlessly. It has the perfect amount of pigmentation. I don't have to build up the product on my cheeks, but it doesn't deposit too much color in one go. It blends effortlessly.
There is a little bit of shimmer that makes your skin glowy, but you can't see individual shimmers on your skin.
All in all, a great product for an incredibly low price.

I won't repurchase this blush because I purchased the wrong color for my skin tone. However, it is super silky, pigmented, and overall a delightful formula to use on my cheeks. The packaging is okay, and the brush it comes with is poor quality, but otherwise it's a truly amazing product. What I love about it is that it doesn't contain shimmer, one thing that has previously peeved me about some other blushes. I recommend this to anyone!!

Pretty good cheapie blush. VERY pigmented but can be a little chalky and dusty. I have to be careful when I use this because it does come out so dark. The color almost has an orange tint on my skin? I like this blush and I think it's a good value but it's not my favorite. I prefer blushes that are more pink. I'm definitely going to pick up some more of the W&W blushes.

I got the older version as well as the newer version of this blush and i absolutely love it! It's a warm rose on me. I don't see any pink but more towards reddish when applied. It's a very elegant and classic color for me and i like to wear it for occasion and esp. at night. It's long-wearing (on me just like most Wet n Wild blush, which i do have some other long-lasting one fading out on me by the end of the day), it's cheap and it's pigmented, alittle goes a long way. There are some issues though, the older version, the one with the silver packaging break when the item came to me but luckily the blush remain unbroken or else, i'll have to get a refund since the other wet n wild products, both of them, shimmer blush all came broken but the packaging remain intact. Strange isn't it? Secondly, the powder does fly everywhere but it's not like i'm using alot, i don't really care. Finally, i don't like the mirror and the brush but who uses them anyway? lol. For me, the blush haven't crack on me mysteriously so i'm crossing my finger that it won't anytime but since i have quite a few blush to rotate, i think it won't be a problem yet. I got a backup just incase Drugstore decide not to carry this brand. Heard the newer version is abit different than the older version (more buttery?), i've yet to used the new one since i don't think i will be using up the older version anytime soon! I'm just fumed that Naive is discontinued and i thought they might include it in the newer version. THAT is my favourite color and it's no longer available since the older version.

Mellow Wine is a very buildable, very pigmented Rose Pink color (warm pink with a hint of red). For the heavy handed, this may be a little strong, but luckily this blush is easily blended out with a Kabuki or large powder brush. The formula is a bit soft, causing it to be a bit "dusty" and it sometimes gets mysterious cracks and breaks, causing me to give this 4 stars. However, the wearing of this is amazing - it lasts all day with little fading, and the color pay off rivals that of prestige brands!

This was my first WnW purchase, and I've got to say, I couldn't be happier! I bought this blush at a BOGO deal at CVS so it was even cheaper than the already low price! This blush is super pigmented, a light tap in the pan is more than enough to apply to your cheeks. It is a rosy/plummy/pink color which is perfect for the fall and winter months. I have received so many compliments wearing this blush because it gives me the "just got out of the cold" look. The only negative things I can say about this blush is that is is super soft, so it is prone to breaking easily if dropped. Some people complain about the crumbliness of the blush, but I personally don't mind; it just makes it easy to blend out. Also the packaging is flimsy and cheap, but for $2/$3, I'm not going to complain. Aside from those minor issues, I love this blush. Definitely an HG product for me.

I think this is one of my HG blushes. This color is very natural looking on my NC45 complexion. I love that it is very pigmented so a little goes a long way. One day I wore this in with bronzer I used for light contouring and my BF (who RARELY notices my blush) commented on my cheeks. That right there tells me this is a keeper and will always stay in my makeup bag. Definately worth the money!!

This blush is amazingly pigmented, just to get that right out of the way. It's a nice color, though I don't think it reminds me of wine, whatever the name might say. But, as I said it was pigmented, please watch out if you get it, you don't need to swirl your brush. A tap is really all you need.
I think that this goes very well with my skin but would work just as well with every other skin color.
The only reason I take a lippy off, and this may not be due to the blush, is because I find that the color changes a bit throughout the day. Don't get me wrong, I still like the color that is there, but it is a different color than I started with.
Also, since these blushes are so cheap, I want to get some more! But, I wish they had more shades!
