Product Review: Wet n Wild Blusher in Mellow Wine

Hi Everyone!!

With the onset of spring I wanted to try some affordable ways to add a some bright colors to my makeup routine. Coral is probably the most beloved color for spring makeup. So I tried Wet n Wild's Color Icon Blusher in Mellow wine. I think this blush has been named inappropriately. This color is neither mellow nor wine!

What the brand has to say about the product:

Sweep on this silky-smooth blush that strikes the perfect balance between a blendable transparent sheen and a radiant pop of maximum color. A special blend of treated nylon powders provides long-lasting color. Dermatologist-tested.

What I think about the product:

I think of this blush as a perfect dusty coral colored blush. The color is quiet muted, which makes it perfect for daytime wear. It is completely matte and has no shimmer at all. The formula is smooth and easily bendable. It is a very pigmented formula. So you just need a little bit. Also before applying be sure to tap off the excess. I think it is beautiful color with a beautiful formula at an amazing price. It is not as smooth as high end blush formulas, but nonetheless, performs well. The staying power is good, and lasts good 5-6 hrs without fading away. I think this color will look good on people from fair to medium skin tones.

Lets talk about the packing. As any affordable blush, it comes with a tiny brush, which goes without saying, is useless. The packing is very plain and prone to breakage. Although the packaging is thin, the extra space provided for housing the brush makes the packing unnecessarily big. The packing really devalues the product in my opinion. 

In conclusion, I would definitely recommend this for any one looking for a matte coral blush at an affordable price!

Final Verdict: 4.5/5
