Blush is the one makeup product that anyone can start applying without much practice. And in winter season, blushes give you a cute feminine look with no effort at all. To give your cheeks an extra ounce of cuteness all you need to do is choose the shade wisely. Pink is what I prefer the most on daily basis, but if the makeup demands a different color I always go with that call. Speaking of pink, now I have couple of pink blushes which may look the same but actually give a different look. Here is another addition to my pink blush collection – Wet n Wild Color Icon Blusher Heather Silk. Read on to know my experience with this product.
My Take on ‘Wet n Wild Color Icon Blusher Heather Silk’
It comes in a rectangular pan that is divided into two compartments. One compartment contains the swirly-patterned blush and the other compartment is made for the blush brush. The transparent lid gives full visibility to the contents inside, and makes the pattern look even more attractive. Though the packaging looks sturdy but still I would recommend handling it with care. Unlike most of the blushes, it does not have any inbuilt mirror. Not that I need it on regular basis but if it had been there it would be useful while travelling or when you need hasty touch-ups.
The angled brush is convenient to use, unless you have really long nails that are preventing you to have a good grip on it. The density of the bristles is sufficient enough to hold the blush particles and transfer the color to your cheeks. Also, if you are a beginner in blush application, the angle will help you in precisely putting the color on the apples of your cheeks.
Heather silk is the shade of a dusty pink rose. It has excellent color payoff, in one swipe only it gives a prominent pink blush to the cheeks. If you want to give it some depth or increase the longevity or do a night makeup look you can go for two swipes. In all ways, it is appropriate for most of Indian skin tones and suits them well.
It has smooth silky texture that makes it easy to apply. For that soft texture only, you can easily build up the color but may need to spend some time while blending it out. The outcome is subdued and charming. It does not feel chalky/powdery on the skin in fact gives a natural looking pink blush.
For the staying power, it stays for good 4-5 hours. If you want to extend the staying power, you can go for more than one swipe that will not only make it last long but also gives your cheeks some more depth that do not look bad at all with this shade. But do ensure that you blend it well, just put the required effort only as too much effort will erase the color.
It gives a matte finish that does not look superficial if blended well. Personally, I do not like blushes that have shimmer in them especially for day-time wear so for me this is a nice matte blush to complement the professional looks.
