Wet 'n' Wild Rose Golden Goddess To Reflect Shimmer Palette
Wet ‘n’ Wild Rose Golden Goddess To Reflect Shimmer Palette

An Orange Blush that’s Happy to See You

Wet ‘n’ Wild Rose Golden Goddess To Reflect Shimmer Palette ($4.99 for 0.40 oz.) is a mix of medium peach and orange-brown. Together, they create a coppery, orange-brown with a frosted, metallic sheen. NARS Luster is less brown, more orange. MAC Alpine Bronze is more subdued, less shimmery. MAC Glorify is browner. Estee Lauder Topaz Chameleon is browner, darker.

This will tend to be more flattering on warmer complexions and deeper skin tones. I think many will find it too orange, though it is more flattering than an orange-toned bronzer/brown blush, because this is more orange than brown, so it adds color, warmth, and glow without potentially turning ruddy.  The frosted, metallic finish did emphasize pores and imperfections in skin texture.  It is a baked product, so you could use it wet or dry, though the pigmentation was true-to-pan when used dry.  When applied wet, you’ll get an even more metallic finish.  The texture is soft, more finely-milled than a lot of baked products, but not as finely-milled as most powder blushes. Rose Golden Goddess lasted just over six hours on me, and after seven, it looked patchy. It’s on par with the majority of baked products and how long they wear on me, so if you normally get longer wear out of your baked products, this might wear similarly.

This will tend to be more flattering on warmer complexions and deeper skin tones. I wish I saw better wear out of the formula, though, because then it would be a killer deal.

    Really loving these Shimmer Palettes. This one looks beautiful on you!!

  2. It instantly reminded me of A Chanel product that you reviewed. Don’t remember if it was an highlighter or a blush. But it looks lovely and if given a chance I would to spend on it.
    Thanks,
    Jiya

    As state twice before, this is the one I own and I ADORE it! I am a deeper tone and wear it as a highlighter and it is divine.

  4. Love this beauty find! Plus, you can use it as an eyeshadow if it does wear as well as a blush on your skintone…Thanks for sharing XOXO

  5. Great review. Wonderful to see affordable products reviewed also! Thanks.

    These are a fair size eh? I’d purchase the two – the pink one and this one – if only Wet N Wild would bring their LE collections to Canada!! Grrr!!

  7. Hm…another one that’s too orange for my taste. Also, I have VERY large pores, so this is a no-go :/

    Yikes! How many names does this product have? “Fergie”, “Centre Stage Collection”, “To Reflect Shimmer Palette” and then finally, in a little corner on the bottom “Rose Golden Goddess”. It took me a few seconds to find the name that you use in the review, Christine (which is clearly the real name of the colour/product, though it’s so cleverly camouflaged!)

  9. browz are looking gooooood!

    I got the lighter one, Rose Champagne Something. Yeah- too many names!

    It would be nice to see swatches of all of these at once. The Walgreens with the good make up selection is across town and there’s competition for LE WnW. Acctually, all blushes from a collection would be good to see side by side swatched. We all know your arm, Christine, so it’s the perfect surface. Lined up in the drugstore though, things all look the same under that icky light.

    Actually, it’s hard to judge under fancy department store light.

    Not a fan. That looks way too orange.

    I purchased the Rose Golden Goddess and absolutely love it! I have olive skin tone/south east Asian and I used this the other day as a blush. Today, I used it as a highlighter with a single simple sweep. I love that there is a lot of product sold for just $5.99USD here in Texas. I’m so happy to see that you do reviews on both high end and drug store products being that my collection contains a little bit of both :).

  13. I’m an NC 50 and while this product looks FANTASTIC on me….it’s basicly a repromote of the baked bronzers from Wet and Wild’s sisterline, Black Radience (the two darker colors anyway). The baked bronzers from BR have been out for quite a while and retail at a lower price point than these do (my Walgreens priced these at $5.99). I’d been searching high and low for them and as soon as I purchased them and got in the car, I had a nagging feeling that they were similar to something already in my stash. Low and behold, they are EXACTLY like the BR bronzers…the same veining, the same color, they even swatch the same. The lipsticks in this collection are also mostly repromotes of the megalast lipsticks from Wet and Wild. I’ve noticed that W&W has been heavy on the repromotes lately. Such a shame but these are going back to the store! Those of you looking for it but unable to find it, check out the orginial Black Radiance version of these powders.

    Thank you for reviewing drug store make up. I’m a NW 45 girl I might just pick this up!
