Cheap and Pigmented- What Could be Better?
Once I heard about these little babies on Beautylish, I knew I had to snatch one up. Pigmented and cheap? Wet n Wild is hitting home run after home run lately- it seems the success of the shadows has rubbed off on the blushes! I picked Mellow Wine because it was more familiar- but now I wished I had gotten more! And because they are so cheap, picking up a few more won't break the bank!
Mellow Wine is similar to a red-toned blush in my Sephora Collection Makeup Studio Blockbuster- L.E. Holiday 2011 kit and also looks a bit like my newly re-discovered and other fave reddish blush- the discontinued Revlon Golden Affair blush in 430 Rose Rapture, which is great for adding contour with a color kick. Mellow Wine is mostly matte with a faint micro-shimmer and as with the shadows, its super soft and easy to kick up powder. I think this shade would work great as an eyeshadow as well. The brush is crap so I ditched it, but the blush is awesome! If W n W keeps this up, ALL their products will be re-formulated and even better!
These Blushes Pack a Punch!
Some of the most pigmented products in my makeup collection! You have to use a really light hand but they look AMAZING when applied. I own them all because I have yet to find a blush I like as much in the whole drugstore.
Pearlescent pink is my everyday blush, because I don't need a highlighter because it does have a nice amount of shimmer.
Mellow wine is my favorite blush because its the most matte and I use it a little farther back on the cheeks when I don't feel like contouring as well.
Heather Silk is a bright dramatic blush that I always use for my stage makeup in dance and theatre because it is a visible colors but a natural shade, not neon or anything.
Berry Shimmer is like a mix of Pearlescent Pink and Heathersilk because it's glittery and dramatic, I use this one the least because it is by far the most pigmented and I prefer natural makeup.
This blush is amazing. Perfect for all skin tones. And matte. It stays all day. And if you are fair like me this blush will last you forever. You seriously need the littlest amount. It's incredibly pigmented. Just a little tap in the product is all you need. And it will keep you looking gorgeous all day long.
These blew me out of the water!
I honestly don't think that you can get a better blush than this for $4 (I'll even go out on a limb and say that these are the best blushes on a drugstore level). They're supremely pigmented, they blend like a dream, they're super silky, there isn't an unnatural or powdery appearance, and they last a pretty decent amount of time. Since these have such crazy pigmentation, application has to be light... one or two taps with a brush will do. The fact that you need so little means that a pan will last you for quite a long time.
OMG! shocked !
i just got this today. i have for long time wanted to try out a matte blusher, so i decided to go for a cheap one, in case it wasn't for me. The Heather Silk might just have a little hint of shimmer in the pan, but on my face there's no shimmer what so ever. This pink is true Barbie-ish, but gives an amazing natural flush on my fair-skintone... i am in love with this, and for spring i can't pick a better color, this is -hands down- amazing ! the cheapest matte blusher i could find, and OMG the pigmentation ! - only dip the tip of your brush ever so gently, because this little awesome guy is soooo sooo sooo pigmented, and gives true color pay-off... having this in my makeup-bag i don't need any high-end cheekproduct, because it doesn't get any better than this one !
i really recommend trying this out ! <3
lots of love, xo xo
I recently got this blush a few weeks ago and I have been using it everyday ever since.
Pigmentation is great! A little goes a long way, trust me. Such a great blush for so cheap. Cheaper than an ELF Studio Blush and the Wet N Wild one doesn't even have as much shimmer as ELF making it very wearable for people with aging skin. I bought it for my mom and she loves it too. :)

better than i thought
This is so pigmented!! I never would have expected such good quality for three dollars! This shade has a lot of golden shimmers. If you like matte blushes, this isn't for you. Sometimes, it is too bright, so I recommend using a stipple brush to apply this. With a light hand, this looks gorgeous.
My new favorite blush!
I have always stuck to sheer or shimmery blush, because that's what I would only find in stores. I found this in Walmart for only $2.99, so I bought two in Heather Silk and Mellow Wine. I love them! I use Mellow Wine more often because it tends to match my darker skin tone this spring, I only use Heather silk if I want to go a bit on the lighter sheer side. These are both pigmented, so don't let the affordable price fool you. The brush that comes with it is useful, but the only thing that irritates me is the fact that when you grab product with any blush brush, the pigment of the blush just tends to come off too much, so I have blush all over the place, and a few extra on my brush which I don't need since it's already pigmented. Being that it's the only matte and affordable blush that I have come to love, I recommend this product to anyone who loves matte blushes:)
