Wet N Wild Color Icon Ombre Blush

IMG_0052
New from Wet N Wild’s Spring 2016 Line are the Coloricon Ombre Blush.  Available exclusively at Target, there are three shades in this permanent line. 
ColorIcon™ Ombre Blusher by Wet n Wild® will get you riding the shade wave to radiance! Blendable, lightweight powders in a soft gradient of ombre hues. Silky-smooth formula blends seamlessly for buildable color. Use as a blush or even as a shadow for a fun pop of color.
All 3 blushes have an ombre effect to them, starting out light in colour at the top, with the colour selection deepening towards the bottom of the pan.  It makes for a very pretty effect.  Each shade has a party drink name to it : Mai Tai Buy You a Drink, In a Purple Haze and The Princess Daiquiries, and they are pastel like in colour, perfect for Spring!

These ombre blushes swatch nicely, but when applied to your cheeks they don’t seem as pigmented and don’t give a lot of colour on the cheeks.  I find that they give more of a highlight with a hint of colour.  They are chalky and powdery so perhaps that comes into play.  They all have finely milled shimmer, but it is more subtle in The Princess Daiquiries and In a Purple Haze.  Speaking of In a Purple Haze, it is a very unique and gorgeous combination of pink to purple to lilac.  I recommend this shade, just because it is so unique!  I have been using it as an eyeshadow as it just doesn’t work as a blush colour for me.  But if I could, I would wear it as a blush.  It’s just so pretty!
As I mentioned above, they are available now, exclusively at Target stores and Target online.  For my Canadian readers, Target now ships to Canada!!

      *Glad I could help. They are so pretty, but just didn’t perform as a blush in my opinion. Thanks for reading and stopping by!

    These new Wet n Wild blushes look so amazing! I’m annoyed they are only at Target. I’m trying to figure out where to get them in Canada 😦

      They are really pretty but I just didn’t feel they performed as a blush. More of a highlight with some colour. Not sure if they will be in Canada. Makes me miss when Target was here! But, Target does ship to Canada…..just need our dollar to climb back up eh!
