Love this blush so much! It gives me a very natural flush on my skin tone . It's quite pigmented so 1-2 swipes will do. It stays around 3-5 hours on my skin ( I stay in a hot and humid climate) which is fine to me considering the crazy cheap price of this blush. My only complaint is the brush that comes with the packaging , it's absolutely useless as the bristles are so thick and tough and makes the blush streaky. But that's ok with me since I already have a better blush brush :p would definitely repurchase this shade and try out other wet n wild blushes :)

All of the blushes in the WNW Color Icon line are extremely pigmented, and Pearlescent Pink is no exception. Pearlescent Pink is a vibrant pink blush with peachy undertones and finely milled golden glitter. The low price point of WNW blushes makes them extremely appealing, however I think that the standard target audience should be wary. Due to the crazy amount of pigmentation these blushes give off they require patience and experience to avoid looking like a clown. This means having good tools (such as a stippling brush), and a very light hand... something that many people who are looking for an affordable "get the job done" type of blush might not necessarily have experience with.

With the crazy pigmentation in mind, I think that Pearlescent Pink is a wonderful blush for any experienced makeup user. The shade is very pretty, and would likely suit many different skin tones depending on how built up it is. Additionally, the formula of these blushes last long on the skin, making them suitable for daily use. For those less experienced with blush, I recommend trying something less pigmented such as Milani's "Dolce Pink" or NYX "Pinched", which both give off a similar effect to Pearlescent Pink at just a few dollars more. If budget is less of an issue, The Balm "Bahama Mama" is also similar yet much easier to work with.

PROS:
Cheap.
Very pigmented.
Long-wearing.

CONS:
Crappy packaging.
Harder to blend than some of my other blushes.
Very powdery, which makes the packaging a bit messy over time.

I can understand why these blushes are popular. They ARE indeed great value for the price you are paying.
For me, this is not a product I would repurchase. Although I can make it work, I find that it does not always blend seamlessly on me. It just requires a bit of brushwork to get it sufficiently blended, and I have to use an extremely light hand for it to not look too intense on my fair skin. I don't regret buying it because, hey, it was super cheap. And as I said, I am able to get use out of it. It's just that in the future I would just prefer to spend a bit more $ and get a blush that is amazing on me, rather than this which is just ok.

There was a while I reached for blusher everyday, but I have found other drugstore ones that I like more. Overall, it is a high quality blush, but it does have some small glitters. It is very pigmented, which can make it go a bit overboard if you aren't careful. It's a really nice pink with hints of coral, perfect for summer.

I love this blush. It is very comparable to Nars orgasm blush. It's a beautiful color with a little bit of sparkles. It gives you the right shimmer to the cheeks and it gives you a great color payoff. It's matches a lot of skin tone very well. It gives a nice flush look to the cheeks. Really great product!!

Holy wow...Ok, I bought this honestly not expecting much. I mean, this was less than $3, so I knew it was either going to be so lightly pigmented that I had to use half of it just to make it show up, or it was going to be garish. It's closer to the latter, but it can work. The first time I used it, I used the same brush I like for blush, but I brushed it across the powder a couple of times. That was waaaay too much product, even after tapping off the excess. Learn from my mistake. (**Disclaimer: I am very, very pale. If you do not resemble a ghost, your results may vary.**)

I used an E.L.F. stippling brush and just barely touched the brush on the blush, then tapped the brush to shake off any excess. Then very lightly I worked it onto my cheeks. The result, on full coverage foundation, was actually very nice.

I think this is more of a coral shade, which is exactly what I wanted after using kind of bubblegum pink, mauve-ish, and peach for the last...well, a really long time. So, I saw this and thought, "Why not? It's cheap and will at least let me see if I like this kind of color so I can get something better if it sucks." But I'm really impressed by this one, so it might be my HG blush. I never thought I would have a HG blush, but here it is.

It seems to wear well, but I haven't tested it in high humidity and heat yet. I'll update this later if my opinions change. I'll also see how it looks with BB cream instead of full coverage foundation and add that later.

As of now, I recommend this one. Just be careful and use a light touch, because it is VERY pigmented. It's better to use too little and have to add a bit more, than try to fix having way too much on.

Beautifully colored blush - I'd call it a peachy pink leaning more pink. Its got some shimmer, but on me its subtle. Packaging sucks, but its cheap so whatever.
The thing is that this blush is somehow very powdery and hard to blend. It ends up looking streaky on me, and wears off pretty quickly. Its very pigmented, so you need to use a light hand or it can be too much very easily.
Its an okay product, but I just find it difficult to work with. In a pinch, with no other options, it would be a fine blush. But in comparison to other blushes with a similar color, I destashed this one first.
If you love this color, try Jordana blush in Coral Sandy Beach. On my cheeks they look about the same (Jordana's blush is more peachy) but the quality of Jordana is far superior for about the same price.
