Rose Champagne

Wet ‘n’ Wild Rose Champagne Color Icon Blush ($2.99 for 0.20 oz.) is a soft peach with warm undertones and fine, gold pearl. It had a subtle shimmer-sheen finish that became softly luminous when buffed and blended out on the skin.

The brand says that it’s supposed to be a “buildable, blendable powder” with “long-lasting color.” It had good pigmentation that was buildably from mostly opaque to opaque. The blush had a fairly soft, lightly dusty texture that was blendable on the skin and easy to work with, especially if you’re someone who can be heavy-handed with blush. The color itself is on the lighter end of the spectrum, so it would be something that would show up more visibly on fairer skin tones than my light-medium complexion, where it worked more as a highlighter than a blush. It lasted well on my skin for seven and a half hours.

Pearlescent Pink

Wet ‘n’ Wild Pearlescent Pink Color Icon Blush ($2.99 for 0.20 oz.) is a brighter, medium pink-coral with a golden shimmer. After blending out the powder, the finish was more of a satin sheen.

The brand says that it’s supposed to be a “buildable, blendable powder” with “long-lasting color.” The consistency was slightly drier with moderate amounts of excess powder that kicked up in the pan, but I had no trouble blending and diffusing the edges of the blush on my skin, and I did not feel like it looked dry applied. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation that lasted for seven hours on me.

NARS Angel Pride Cheek Palette ($59.00) includes four limited edition blushes (Angel Pride I through IV) along with permanent shades Hot Sand (blush) and Laguna (bronzer). The palette itself contained quite a bit of product, so there’s no worry about it not being value-packed. My concern was that the texture of the palette throughout felt stiffer, thinner, and drier compared to most of NARS’ standalone powder blushes/bronzers. All but one shade (Angel Pride III) applied fairly well to my cheeks and were not difficult to blend out, but I was expecting a more refined texture from NARS.

Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Blush Glow Set ($78.00 for 0.80 oz.) includes a bronzer and blush housed in side-by-side pans. Per the brand, it includes a “natural bronze hue” while the blush adds a “limitless glow.” The two worked well together, but the bronzer is quite light and was subtle on my skintone so this might be more suitable for lighter complexions if wanting to use the bronzer as a bronzer. (I liked the bronzer as a soft highlighter, which would work on light to medium skin tones.) The duo was lovely overall, but I wish the brand thought to include a deeper version or had gone with a more medium-hued bronzer that might work for more complexions. There was a brush included, which was serviceable but nothing noteworthy and not something I’d use as it was somewhat scratchy and prone to shedding.

Suntan

Bobbi Brown Suntan Glow Stick ($36.00 for 0.31 oz.) is a medium copper with warm brown undertones and fine, golden pearl. It had sheer coverage that did not build it up (for those who prefer move coverage, but this was described as a sheer product). On my skin tone, it was hard to see much of the base color coming through as it was too close to my natural coloring but I expect on fairer complexions that it will add some warmth, too.

It’s supposed to be a “creamy, lightweight highlighter” with “sheer” coverage that gives “an instant, sun-kissed glow that lasts all day.” The emollient feel of the formula did not play well with products (primers, cream/powder/liquid foundations or blushes). It was wet and lightly tacky at all times, and I routinely was plucking dog hair off of my cheeks. It worked best on bare skin, but just had little wear time that it needed frequent reapplications. On me, it only lasted for three hours.

Island Plum

Bobbi Brown Island Plum Glow Stick ($36.00 for 0.31 oz.) is a medium-dark plum with subtle, warm undertones and fine, cooler pink and warmer gold pearl. This was one of the more visible shades in the range, though it still had sheerer coverage (semi-sheer) that wasn’t buildable but didn’t sheer out to nothingness when blended either. I did find the more noticeable color to be harder to even out on bare skin, though.

It’s supposed to be a “creamy, lightweight highlighter” with “sheer” coverage that gives “an instant, sun-kissed glow that lasts all day.” It had a very slick, emollient consistency that never dried down, so it moved and migrated on the skin, and it also caught any flyaway hairs (or dog hair, in my case). The blush had a glowing finish on the skin but little wear time–three hours–and did not play well with products (primers, cream/powder/liquid foundations or blushes).
