My skin is pale, cool-toned winter type.
I recently bought this product, so I have the newer, coral version of this blush.
As many of the other comments here state, the pigment is very strong and is easy to overuse. Additionally, the brush that comes with it is very bad, so I suggest using a different tool to apply the blush with.
Unfortunately, the blush is physically very weak, and disturbing the cake to get the blush will produce a lot of powder. It will most likely break if not careful, and I cannot leave it sideways or face-down in my makeup pouch without the powder getting everywhere inside the plastic casing. However, considering this is a very cheap product, I do not consider this a big downer given the nice quality of the actual blush relative to the price.
The color lasts my 8 hour work-day (granted, I stay inside and it is a very sedentary job), and if applied in moderation, looks very natural and cute.
It is matte, and did not change color throughout the day for me. I applied this over my foundation.
4/5 great product for the price. Definitely recommend despite its faults. It is an extremely cheap product with great staying power, great everyday color, and is a great find if you can control the amount put on your face well.
Unfortunately, I will not buy again since I travel a lot, and being able to fit it sideways in my makeup bag without the product ruining itself is important to me. Additionally, I hate the gunky look the casing gets when the powder gets everywhere inside. I leave it outside my makeup pouch, and keep it on the vanity at home. I only use it when I am at home.

It's not the best blush I've used, but also not the worst. You get what you pay for with this product. It doesn't stay on very long, but I have received several comments on the color. A little goes a long way- Don't put too much on or it will be way too dark! I would definitely use a professional brush with this because the brush it comes with is very hard to use.

I wanted to love this so much more than I did. The color is beautiful, and it is well pigmented. However, I find that it had less staying power than other blushes I use. Honestly for the price it is an amazing product and I would encourage anyone to try it. Just for me, I won't repurchase this color.

Love all Color Icon blushes! This one is the least pigmented of the 3. But that's good because the other 2 are SO pigmented, you need to really learn how to use a light hand & how to spread evenly without getting them all over your face. This a beautiful peachy pink with gold shimmers in it. The shimmer hardly even shows up at all, so all you see is this light glowy pink on your cheeks. You don't need a light hand with this color & it blends so beautifully. I love it. I heard it's Nars' Orgasm dupe but that it has less shimmery & is a little more on the pink that peach side. So cheap, too! But do NOT drop this. It WILL break. Always be gentle with Color Icon packaging.

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 it, I went and bought a second color (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)

This blush was a bit too rosy for my cheeks but nonetheless i enjoyed the consistency and the feel of it when i put it on my skin. We 'n' Wild is not considered a high end cosmetic industry but they do have some good makeup that feels rather nice on the skin and does not give me acne. I tend to get acne all over my face, there is really not anywhere that is a 'safe' zone. It doesn't matter what day of the week or that time of the month, there is usually an annoying pimple that won't go away. i have to say that i am thankful for trying this and it has not made me skin any worse. This blush comes in a few colors but i really love the pearlescent pink the best.

LOVE this blush! I was searching the internet for drugstore dupes for Nars Orgasm and this one had the highest amount saying it was super close, so I tried it and omg its so pretty! I like it better than the Nars one because I dont like glitter in my blushes, and the wet n wild one is just the right amount of shimmer. It is also VERY pigmented so use a light hand with it first. You can always build up if you need to but its harder to take away!

Gorgeous baby pink blush with gold shimmer. This gives my face a glow without looking too shiny or crazy bright. Wet n' wild blushes are super pigmented yet inexpensive. I use a big fluffy brush (ecotools blush brush) to apply to my cheeks. Be careful with these blushes because they're super fragile and will shatter if you drop them. Def would repurchase!!

What! How can I have no reviewed this product yet? This is my favorite highlighting blush from the drugstore. When applied with a light hand in the right spot you can get a little dewy look perfect for summer. So worth it, the best shade in the Wet N Wild line. I am a blushaholic and own a TON of both drugstore and high end blushes and I still reach for this one all the time. In fact I even picked myself up a backup in case this ever breaks.

The blush is nice and the colour payoff is amazing. I just find on my skin is comes off too warm tends to look more orange then pink. Makes me sad cause it looks so nice on other people :(. I'd definitely recommend for people to try though it's cheap and can potentially look amazing on u. :) xo

I do enjoy this blush. I actually find this to be an excellent dupe for the NARS "orgasm" more than the ELF Studio Blush&Bronzer duo. This blush has the same hue of pinky-coral that the NARS has, with a little less golden glitter in it. I am not a huge fan of GLITTERY blushes, I prefer matte or shimmery blushed. I find that big glitter pigments can be quite noticeable. However, the glitter in this blush is not quite as over powering as some other blushes, and its very flattering.

So gorgeous. My only complaint is the unfortunate packaging. But at four dollars, my argument is just not valid. Not going to give a long rave on this product because it's pretty basic. Gorgeous natural healthy pink color. Fine milled sparkles. Easy application. Natural glow. And done. The only thing I would suggest is using a very light hand with these because they are very pigmented.

This is a very pretty, pigmented glowy golden pink. I've had mine for quite a while and I adore it. It's a good "gateway" blush if you aren't used to wearing a lot of color on your cheeks.

I wish I had noticed that this blush had mineral oil in it before I tried it on and just fell in love, FELL IN LOVE...... but sadly, so very sadly, this broke me out. horribly.
mineral oil is not friendly to my skin, but if you're okay with it then for sure go out and buy this color! its super cheap and such a beautiful pinky color with a golden sheen (reminds me a bit of the ever so famous NARS Orgasm)
So unfortunate. if it had not broken me out, it definitely would've been HG material.

I got this blush on sale for around $1.50 at Rite-Aid and have been using it for over a year. It does not irritate my skin at all and is a buildable color. This blush is a warm rosy/coral pink with iridescent gold specks- I love the shade and it makes my cheeks glow. Looks great and very natural on my Asian yellow toned skin. However, my complaint is that it does not last all day- maybe max 2-3 hours. I also have to use my own blush brush, since the one in the package has very stiff bristles.

LOVE THIS BLUSH. ONE OF MY FAVORITE OF ALL TIME.

Finally, a blush that lasts! I have been on the hunt for a blush that doesn't fade out for a long time. I find blushes that look so pretty when first applied, but I look in the mirror later, and look so pale, as if I forgot to put any blush on at all. I read the good reviews on this, but still didn't expect much. I have tried their eyeshadows, and though most love them, I did not like them much at all, and threw them all away. But of course, Wet 'n' Wild is so cheap, what the heck. It was worth a try.
I chose this color as I thought it looked like it would be good with my fair, neutral-to-warm coloring. I thought maybe it would be to frosty, but it's not. It has a nice sheen, but is not glittery at all. It is highly pigmented, so I have to be careful not to load my brush up too much. But it really looks pretty, and quite natural.
And it lasts! It really lasts! I continue to look fresh and not pale far into the day. I love it, and I will definitely repurchase. The price is a wonderful bonus.

The Wet 'n' wild coloricon blush is my Favorite drugstore blush of all time. This is my holy grail item. These blushes are so pigmented, is almost unbelievable. The texture is very silky and smooth. It has that velvety feel to it. I prefer and recommend using less dense or stippling brush (e.i: ecotools finishing kabuki or MAC 187 duo fibre brush). Also use this product sparingly. I have the shades pearlecsent Pink and mellow wine. It comes with a brush, but I prefer to take them out and set them aside. f you use the brush use it sparingly, it will catch A LOT of product. I HIGHLY recommend this product. The only (minor) complaint is the packaging. Mine shattered twice, therefore I had to return it and go back.. I also don't like the brush it comes with. its too stiff and applies TOO much color. If you use the brush it comes with and don't tap of excess you will look very pink.

I really didn't think much of this color when I saw it in the pan at my local CVS; infact I thought this color would hardly show on my nc30-35 skin (olive, warm undertone for reference). It's just such an unassuming shade! This blush was only $2.49, so I figured it would be chalky and poorly milled, and leave me looking washed out. Boy was I wrong, got this home swatched it and I was hooked. This blush is VERY pigmented, so use a light hand and build it up. This blush has fantastic staying power, and truly is a must have for those of you with warm yellow undertones. Will definetly be repurchasing!

I love this blush - just finished one pan and will buy another. It is the only blush I have and the only one I need. Best $3 I've spent. I have some HE MU but no need for HE blush.
