By Rekha (Entry #1)
The Wet n Wild “Silky Finish” range is now re-launched as the “Color Icon” range with a new stylish sleek black case packaging, bigger brush and of course with the same shade names 😉
In other words – An Old wine in a new bottle 🙂
These blushes are available in four variants,

  • 831E Pearlescent Pink
  • 832E Heather Silk
  • 833E Mellow Wine
  • 834E Berry Shimmer

Per WnW,  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.
Today I will be reviewing the shade Pearlescent Pink 🙂
Pearlescent Pink is a nice peachy pink shade packed with golden shimmer. I bought mine at Walgreens when the sales lady told me that this was a close dupe for Nars “Or*asm” blush. 🙂 
I also have the sleek Rose gold which is also called as a dupe for Nars “O” 🙂  I forgot to take a swatch comparison of this WnW Pearlescent Pink n Sleek Rose gold but both of them look almost similar. 🙂 
WnW PP is highly pigmented and blends well when applied. This shade is quite buildable
Though the blush is packed with golden shimmer (which is obviously visible in the swatch 🙂) the shimmer is barely visible when applied and it leaves a hint of that “extra shine” and an “Oomph” factor if you know what I mean. 🙂 
The blush lasts like solid for about 7 to 8 hours and I love the way it fades away leaving a hint of a color behind 🙂

The brush is just ok quality but I suggest you to use this blush with a good blush brush for a perfect finish and to do justice to the excellent color payoff it offers. 😀

The old packaging is a silver case with a small mirror and it’s quite sturdy and travel friendly.


The blush retails at $2.99 or Rs. 180 for 6.8 g/0.24 Oz
Not available in India 🙁 but can be bought online from websites like nonpareilboutique or Ebay at your own discretion and risk 😀
Overall this is a wonderful blush and if you have this ultimate thirst of buying Nars “O” one day, please give this a try, who knows your thirst may quench here 😉
So have you used WnW blushes before? If so which is your favorite? Do let us know in the comments section below 🙂
Take care and Thanks for reading 🙂
