When I saw a YouTuber talk about the new Wet n Wild Color Icon Ombre Blush, I had to pick some up. Today I have swatches and review of all three shades. Check them out below!
The blushes come in a square compact without a mirror or brush. I love that! I hate those little brushes. These are also thin and easy to store. They look sleek and chic. The only thing I’m not a fan of is that the shade name is a sticker.
The first shade is The Princess Daiquiries, a shimmering mid tone pink. The top color is a little more golden while the bottom shade is a blue-based pink. There are some chunks of glitter, but it fades in the brush.
The left swatch is the top color, the middle swatch is the bottom color and the right swatch is the two colors blended. The shades mixed together create a mid tone pink that doesn’t lean too blue or yellow.
This shade wasn’t very pigmented, but it showed up really well on the cheeks. It was a bit sheer, but it easily built up with more product. On the cheeks it looks more yellow toned than mid tone.
The second shade is Mai Tai Buy You A Drink, a golden coral. The top color is a shimmering peach and the bottom shade is a orange-coral.
The left swatch is the top color, the middle swatch is the bottom color and the right swatch is the two colors blended. Together, the shades create a beautiful golden coral.
This shade is gorgeous and super pigmented! One swipe on my hand was enough. On my cheeks, I needed a light touch to get a pigmented cheek.
The third shade is In a Purple Haze, a lavender-toned pink. The top shade is a shimmering pink and the bottom shade is a shimmering lavender.
The left swatch is the top color, the middle swatch is the bottom color and the right swatch is the two colors blended. Blended together, the colors make a lavender pink blush.
This shade is not for the faint of heart. It doesn’t look completely purple on the cheeks, but others can definitely tell you’re not wearing straight-up pink blush. This blends in perfectly with the skin, though. Even though it’s a little more sheer like The Princess Daiquiries, it is easily buildable to a natural flush.
For wear, these are okay. I got about 6 hours for each before I saw some patchiness as it wore away.
Bottom line: These blushes are awesome. They are pigmented, wear a decent amount of time and provide multiple shades of blush in one pan. If you are looking for matte blush, this isn’t it, but if you want a beautiful cheek color, these are worth picking up.
