Heather Silk is a satiny, cool toned berry/dark pink blush that sits beautifully on the skin. In the pan it looks pretty matte, but buffed onto the cheeks it does have a subtle glow. For me, this is the perfect "wintertime flush" blush.

Wow wow wow calm down you Heather silk. I see what you did there.
This is single-handedly the most pigmented item I own in my beauty bag. No kidding. It took the crown from Wnw's Cherry Picking (the most reliable lipstick I ever, ever found and, in my personal charts, the others are far away from the 2nd and 3rd position) after an extreme experiment where I wore it on my hand, and a single strike lasted through 3 hot showers, 6 dish washings, many hands washed and gardening, for a total of 3 days. Just for a comparison.
I got it for only 2 euros in the sales box in one of my favourite drugstores along with Mellow Wine (reviewed elsewhere), and it was the last of its colour, so I had to bring it home with me even if I wasn't convinced by the shade. But for 2 euros, there's nothing to worry about if you want to experiment a bit.
So, boom! I dabbed a little (less than Mellow wine I was still in shock for that lighter shade's pay off) and became a clown. Like, no training, no costume, no creepy jokes, that single cheek made me a full professional clown. Wow.
Aside from jokes, this is really the very own definition of impressive, wheter it's positive or negative. I just stood there with a wide open mouth thinking like "Okay, how am I supposed to use this without losing my mind everyday for blending the s**t out of it?". This is truly an issue if you don't like spending more than 5-10 minutes. I had troubles in blending it with the Real techniques sponge, and that sponge blends everything except smoothies. It really took more time than I allow myself to spend on make up.

BUT! The colour looked kind of..flattering? Personally I've never dared to discover the fuchsia side of blushes, I always stuck on corals and baby pinks. But I got the strong feeling this will be lovely when my skin will turn to its normal colour (I'm freshly sun tanned) and will give a flush of health this winter. It will look quite fake, but I usually fail in giving a damn about it. I just have to figure out the fastest way of blending it and the correct movement to pick the littlest amount of powder from the box.

This will last ages unless the packaging cracks which is very likely when we speak about Wnw. But, even if I still didn't try it on the long run, I'm sure I'll never need to carry it around in the bag.

This blush can stand up against any MAC blush I have (and I own a lot). This was a first purchase for me, and I am amazed at the color, formula, and staying power of this lovely blush.

I tried this because I use Wet N Wild highlighter (I think it is actually marketed as a bronzer) in Reserve Your Cabana. I LOVE that powder and use it everyday on my cheekbones, just above my blush.

Will definitely be looking at more of the Wet N Wild line in the future :)

I bought this blush in Toronto (Canada) at Lowblaws for only $5 and change. I'm light to medium brown skinned, but in the midst of winter my skin is more of a dark beigey complexion. This blush is probably the only blush that looks "normal" on me color wise...Meaning it's not too dark so that I don't look like Clancy the Clown, nor too sheer that I keep applying and nothing shows up. It's that perfect flushed look. I love it!! I was worried at first that since it was so cheap it might break me out (as I've sensitive acne prone skin), but so far so good. It makes my cheek-bones subtly appear higher and puts a nice little subtle color on my (winter "pale") face. Brings it to life more. I bought a Physicians Formula one last year, but was disappointed that it did not show up and gave up on blush for a while, but since I found this I am glad. May try Mellow Wine by W n W next.

Too bright
I like a natural flush to my cheeks, not hey look at me I'm wearing makeup.
I wish they would make some new shades because I do love the quality of the product and appreciate the pigmentation but it was just too much for me and I really don't want a bright fuschia cheek.
I have tried the other shades as well which are also great products just none of shades are something I would use.

This is the only Wet'n'Wild product that I've tried, as you can't get them easily here in NZ. However, I spotted this at a makeup sale a while ago, and snapped it up immediately as I remembered hearing really good things about W'n'W blushes. Unfortunately, this particular shade isn't one that I've got much use out of, and I wouldn't repurchase it if I ever did (somehow) finish it.

To start with, the good things about this blush:
-It's *extremely* pigmented. Not even the fussiest person could complain about any lack of colour payoff here.
-Lasts all day. Granted, I don't have in any way oily cheeks, but even so, some blushes wear off during the day. Not this one!
-You get a large amount of product, which means that this isn't something you're going to have to be shelling out big bucks for on a regular basis. That leads me to my last point....
-This is incredibly cheap. Obviously all makeup costs more here than it does in basically any other country in the world (are you picking up on the tone of bitterness here?), but you can get this blush for less than $10 online, and I believe even at the makeup sale it was only about $8.

However, despite all the points above, here are the reasons I don't really like this blush that much:

-Although I dislike non-pigmented products as much as the next person, I personally find this blush to be TOO pigmented to work with easily. I don't like having to spend 5 minutes on applying my blush alone in the morning, but this blush does require lots of time to make it work. I literally barely touch the product with my brush and it picks up WAY too much product to apply straight away -- I have to work some of it off onto my wrist and then spend ages buffing it out and sometimes even applying more regular face powder on top to get it toned down enough to wear out in public.
-The colour just has too strong a blue undertone for me to be able to pull off with my fair, warm skin. I'm sure that this colour would work amazingly on people with cooler undertones - I can picture it as being the perfect just-in-from-the-snow flush of colour on some people, just definitely not on me. It really doesn't look flattering, and therefore I rarely wear it.

All that being said, I think this is a beautiful colour, and if it actually looked good on me I would probably be more willing to expend the time it requires to apply it nicely. I'm definitely keen to try out some of the eyeshadows, if the pigmentation anywhere near matches that of this blush. Overall, for the price, I think this blush definitely worth a try. :) Hope that helps some of you!

I really like Wet n Wild blush. They are the most pigmented and long lasting (at least on my face and I do live in a tropical country where the heat can be too much, almost all year round, with no four season, here we only have rain or sunny day). I don't need to use a lot to show the color on my face although it is not easily available in my country, I order it online and had to wait till a month to get it but still, it is worth for it price and got the work done very well. Usually I save them for outing when I need to spend more than 6 hours outside and I know they won't fade or disappear easily on my face. Why I gave this blush 3 lippies is because of its color. I love Mellow Wine and I intend to get other two and see how it goes since it is cheap, there isn't any harm anyway right? But for Heather Silk, the color just isn't suitable for me. It is sort of a blue pink mauve on me and I don't look right, healthy or even fresh. No matter how light or slightly heavy, with different application way I applied this blush, it is just not appealing at all to me. I feel like I overdone it every time. Like one reviewer who mention that the color look like she has been smacked, I feel and think the same way when I saw this color on my face. With Mellow Wine and a light tap, it makes me look sophisticated and can be elegant. Too bad this color just don't work for me. I really like how it look in the pan but like Nars Desire, this just doesn't work. Probably it will work for someone with cooler skin tone. Needless to say, I won't repurchase. Will check out the other colors though.

Love the color. Very pigmented! Good texture, smooth and not chalky. I really like that this is a matte color bc wnw always seems to put shimmer in everything. Can't beat the price. I've done a lot of drugstore hauls lately and this was definitely one of the more mention worthy products I've brought home. Deducted this brand again for the packaging. It is light a convenient but no mirror so applying on the go would require another compact. And the product is such a thin layer that I would be afraid it would break in my purse or travel bag. Over all a good buy and I would repurchase.

I tried the Heathersilk blush and was not impressed. I had been searching for a dark pink that would compliment my skin and give me a sultry, night-on-the-town look. This was not the blush for me. It was streaky on my face and didn't blend well. It was dark, but it was a dark/bright combination and upon application it had looked as if I had been smacked. I toned it down with light face powder to blend some of the brightness. I threw it away because I just couldn't work with it. femme couture had a similar looking shade in their loose blush (sweet blush) that was more agreeable in terms of shade. I love Wet-n-Wild, but I personally did not like this blush.
