Forget buying expensive blushes. This is super cheap & INCREDIBLY PIGMENTED. A little goes a long way! Don't heavily dip your brush in the pan because it's so pigmented you'll look like a clown. GET THIS IT'S WORTH IT.

OMG, I love this blush. I went to NYC not too long ago and came across this blush for only $2.00... nothing is THAT cheap in Canada -.- I looked for the darkest color, given my medium skin, (most companies only cater to lighter people) and I bought it. I regret not buying every color. The blush is SOOOO pigmented that the lightest pink would've shown on my skin anyways. I believe that it looks good on any skin tone, as i tried it on my asian friend. I love it, and wish they sold more of this company in Canada. boo hoo :( The only thing that I would recommend for good blend ability is a GOOD blush brush... which is vital for any makeup collection. The blush will look perfect with a Kabuki Applicator. LOVE!

wow! These WNW Coloricon Blushes are freaking unbelievable! I have really pale skin and all of these blushes are so pigmented that i have to be careful esp Berry Shimmer since its darker than most blushes i reach for which is good since ive since realized i dont have to wear light pinks or peaches all the time. This actually looks great on my pale cool skin. I apply a very lite tap of blush & even tap my brush on to the back of my hand just so i apply the thinnest layer- id rather work up then have too much and have to buff and powder so this Berry Shimmer is amazing!
PRICE/AVAILABILITY- this blush will only cost you $2.99 at your local drugstores like Rite Aid, Walgreens, CVS as well as Walmart, Target etc. Wherever your WNW products are sold. Price may vary slightly depending on where you purchase it and your area.
SHADE/FORMULA- Berry shimmer is almost nearly that- its a berry fuschia undertone with a slight shimmer more of a sheen though. Its gorgeous for ALL skin tones. From the cool to warm to the lightest to darkest skin tones- i honestly think its a universally flattering blush!!! On me, its a berry tone blush that pulls more on the cooler end w/ my cool skin. it gives me that warm berry fall winter look that i was out in the snow & cold for hours without actually being there (trust me In pennsylvania, the winter is harsh & im not looking forward to it) i find it to be one of those blushes i look forward to wearing more in the fall and winter weather- it may be a tad too much for me in the summer but sometimes i do pull it out! Be wary- this blushes are so stinking PIGMENTED!! they are soft and blendable and are probably my fav blush formula ever. Its pressed well, but if you do tap your brush in it fiercely, you will get a tiny bit of loose powder in the pan so go in lightly and tap off any excess & for my paleness i got to tap off on the back of my hand with this shade too. But overall- for real this is a great blush to add to your collection..They go on with any type of blush brush you like and blend very well. i havent had them stick or slide- they are beautiful! all the coloricon blushes are gorgeous and i really have fallen in love with this- i appreciate this shade so much since it opened my eyes to the world of berries and rose blushes for my skin.
PACKAGING- this isnt the prettiest nor is it the ugliest either. These blushes use to come in a silver compact but now theyve upgraded the packaging as well as the formula. i own an older blush but only the new version in Berry Shimmer. This is a hard rectangular snap close compact. The top part is see thru so you can see the shade inside. There is a sticker on the front as to what shade it is.. try not to pull it off. they are closed up in store with those stickers though. hard to get off stickers. the back is a glossy black with labeling and ingredient list. the pan of blush itself is decent size. probably 2x2" or around there. its a decent size considering how pigmented this blush is, i havent made a dent yet. The blush itself has a almost marbleized etching in the powder- its so pretty. i almost dont want to touch or ruin the design. :) This also comes with a mini brush. its not the worst ive seen but i havent used it nor do i plan to but i guess in an emergency id try to make it work. its black synthetic bristles that are bit too loose and flimsy. id def suggest making sure to pick up a cheap blush brush like say Elf Studio Blush brush which is only $3 it works good.
Overall- this is seriously a really gorgeous berry esque blush that is universally flattering for all and so nice and smooth and easy to use & make it work. This is great for this time of season, fall and winter. Def give it a try or at least try one of the WetnWild Coloricon blushes! they are so much better than before & ive fallen in love. Very affordable, amazing quality blush from a cruelty free company- all my requirements plus more!

I bought this back when it first came out--mine has the clunky "old" packaging (but you got more product back then). I was kind of afraid of it, since I'm so pale. I tried it, but I don't remember it turning out either remarkably good or bad. Berry Shimmer seems like a fall color, so I got it out again recently. I applied it carefully, since I tend to overdo my blush, and I certainly didn't want to do that with something this pigmented. Applied lightly, this came out on my cheeks as a rosy flush with subtle golden sheen--nothing to be afraid of! WnW makes good products that are usually worth more than the few dollars you spend on them, and this blush is no exception. Still, it's not as exciting or bold as you might think by just looking at it. Should you get it? Yes, but only if you don't already have something similar.

I can't believe how pigmented this blush is! After purchasing, I came home eager to try this out. I haven't purchased drugstore blushes since the early 90's which were all duds. I figured I'd apply it heavy handed just to see how long it'd take to build the color and boy was that a mistake. My cheeks look like clown cheeks as I sit here and type this. A fan or skunk brush is a definite necessity with this color. I'm quite impressed with wet n wild eye shadows but the blush blew me away.

This is an absolutely gorgeous color! Normally I don't go for shimmery berry blushes, especially warm toned ones, but this isn't too warm or too cool. It's just a bit warmer than a pink, which is the best color on my cool toned Asian skin. This has AMAZING pigmentation and you need barely any for the prettiest flush! I think it's probably too much for everyday wear but what I love about it is that it's great for the holidays because it has a subtle shimmer that makes you look glowing and looks natural as long as you use a little!
Plus it's great for darker skintones because it's such a bright, pigmented color and it's not going to look chalky on your skin. But if you have fairer skin like me it's still going to look very pretty! :)

Well, I bought today Wet n Wild Silk Finish Blush in Berry Shimmer. It is soft, don't use the applicator it will ruin the blush. I use my own. The color is very nice and very natural, I use just a little. I will update, so far I like it. The price is great! Packaging is cheap by the way.

Perfect for deep/dark skinned ladies!! This was not discontinued but repackaged as part of the Color Icon line that WnW recently released. A deep shimmery rose with a soft shimmer. It may be a tad darker than MAC Ambering Rose. Very pigmented, a little goes a long way. For $2.99 this is a steal.

I'M SO SAD THAT THIS HAS BEEN DISCONTINUED :-( Such a pretty blush/ eye shadow for spring and summer. Even though it's called Berry Shimmer, it's more of a peachy coral color with gold shimmer. Very pigmented. A little goes a long way, even on my NC45 skin tone. I'm really going to miss this :-(

Changing my review because of an amazing revelation; this blush is my favourite of all time. I own dozens of blushes - high-end, drugstore, online indie companies, but this $3 wonder is the best there is. The pigmentation is outstanding; I turn a dark golden colour during the summertime, and this blush makes my cheekbones stand out, even against my tan. You only need to put a little on the brush to get a nice, healthy glow, so it'll last a very long time. I bought this three years ago, wear it every day during the summer and still have yet to hit pan. The cool undertones may scare some of you warm-toned ladies, but don't be fooled! This blush looks good on everyone.

Great color; great subtle shimmer. I took off one lippie because it requires impeccable blending/ placement of the color, and that's kind of annoying when I'm in a rush. Otherwise, a great product.

I love that this blush is very pigmented that it will prolly last me for a long time. Not bad for USD $3 and even better that I got this at a 40% off sale.
The packaging is very cheap; it's a very flimsy case that you can't really trust inside a purse or even a makeup pouch. And the brush is crap. But if you can de-pot or be careful with the blush and find a good brush, it's worth it.
Too bad it's been discontinued but the Color Icon blush in Berry Shimmer is almost the same thing, they look like different lot batches of the same color.

Terrific Blush! Very pigmented, just blend out well! Not too much shimmer, just enough. Looks great with my NC44 skintone. Ladies, check out these blushes at Rite Aid. They are on clearance there for 75% off. I only paid 74 cents for this blush! It is well worth it.

Extremely inexpensive. I would have never even thought to buy Wet n' Wild or this very intense berry colored blush had it not been for MUA. It is very pigmented, so a little goes a very long way. It give a nice flush to my cheeks.

Wet n Wild Silk Finish Blush in Berry Shimmer: The color is a darker red with slight shimmer. Super pigmented! If you are trying it the first time you may want to just tap your brush in lightly at first just to build it up rather than tone it down (I did the latter by accident)!
I have a MAC Merrily blush and while this isn't an exact dupe it has a similiar look. For the price you can't go wrong!
Another reviewer commented that this blush looks like Snow White's red - I concur! Similiarly, another reviewer remarked that this blush gives you the "Coming in from the cold" look and that is accurate as well.

love it!...works well with my nc43 skin...is cheap,and vibrant...just make sure u use a light hand, because the blush is very pigmented.
*edit* upon wearing this a few more times, i realized that the blush's undertones are too cool for my skintone. its still an amazing blush for a dirt cheap price, but is definitely made for those with cooler undertones.

This blush is amazing and if you have MAC's Dolly Mix it'll add a moajor pop of shimmer. This is my HG blush for when I want to up the amp of my look for an evening, date or whenever I need a little extra. Love this blush and for less than 2 bucks you can't beat it. It's very fragile though, and if you open it without a gentle touch it will crack, no problem though I can put it in a sifter jar, but for now I'll handle this delicately. I am NC45 for reference and this blush is somwhere like Dollymic but much more pigmented, so I sometime use both. Gorgeous berry color. I'll buy a back up of this and I am now a fan of Wet N Wild blushes. Wish they would get better packaging...

Deep rose with gold/bronze shimmer. A version of Orgasm for deep skintones. Although will look great on most warm(yellow) toned complexions. Very pretty. Blends easily and stays on well. A winner in my book. Cost $4 at RiteAid. Will depot and put in a palette with my Black Radiance, Flori, NYX, and Black Opal blushes/bronzers. DDD NW45

click continued for version with pics.
Product: Big blush pan in a cheap plastic compact. Comes with a small brush.
My experience: so i finally got the WnW berry shimmer to see if it could replace my breaking-me-out-like-a-mofo nars outlaw (which i love).
anyway, here are the pics:
in the pan:
hmm looks similar. well, not quite, there are differences that are quite subtle, although the two are close, and definitely in the same color family. the WnW is brighter, and less 'dusty' in color, and also a bit warmer. the nars is more 'dusty' (like more brown?) and more berry and more blue-based than the WnW. but they look the same.
so here they are swatched:
L - R: WnW berry shimmer applied lightly, nars outlaw applied lightly, WnW berry shimmer applied heavily, nars outlaw applied heavily
yup theres definitely a difference when swatched heavily. even though they are close (and this is possibly the closest dupe ive seen so far), there are differences, esp if you layer it on like me, for swatch purposes (see the last 2 swatches from the left). the WnW is a warm berry color, the nars is definitely more cool, and more muted. so for girls who are worried that the nars might be too cool, the WnW is actually a better bet for you. but for cooltoned girls who hate any sort of warmth on their skin, the nars might be a better bet. the WnW is also a bit brighter, but given how both colors are screaming berries, not by much.
but what if you wear both as a blush? you wouldnt be wearing them as heavily, so i did light swatches (first 2 from left). and here , i think theyre pretty much indistinguishable. i did make the swatches lighter, but this is still much more than what you'd wear on your face as a blush. so i'd say that to all intents and purposes, theyre not exact dupes of each other, but they're close, and in the same color family.
now for notes on quality: surprise! the WnW is by far sooo much more pigmented than the nars. no kidding! this shocked me. for the 2 heavy swatches i really had to dig into my nars to get this level of pigmentation, but for my WnW i only needed a few strokes. i cant believe this, but it looks like WnW has totally smashed, kick-assed, owned, pwned, and just generally trashed nars in terms of pigmentation.
the only gripes i have about WnW are the packaging. the plastic window in the casing likes to come off and dig into the blush (be careful if travelling with it), and the small brush it comes with is really useless. the brush issue isnt a problem for me, since i use my own brushes anyway, but i'm always worried about my WnW blushes getting all banged up if the plastic window screen comes off. not that sturdy for travelling.
all in all: i'd totally recommend this if: you want something similar to nars outlaw, but dont need an -exact- dupe, or you like nars outlaw, but found it ashy or muddy or too cool on you, or if you found the nars not pigmented enough for you, or that it doesnt show up on you. i'd totally recommend this to anyone and everyone. now everyone likes to rave about cheap dupes for expensive stuff, and not all of them live up to the hype, but this blush is proof that you dont need to spend a ton to get good quality makeup!
