Wet ‘n’ Wild Hummingbird Hype ColorIcon Baked Blush ($4.99 for 0.19 oz.) is a light-medium, peachy orange with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer that was easily built up to opaque coverage with a second layer. The texture was smooth to the touch, soft and blendable without being powdery, which made it a versatile formula that could be applied with a lighter hand for sheerer coverage or even just buffed out more for less-intense shine. The finish was luminous and didn’t emphasize my skin’s natural texture. This shade stayed on nicely for eight hours before I noticed signs of wear.

The formula is described as having a "mesmerizing tropical glow" with "micro-fine pearl pigments" that "blend beautifully onto the skin." The formula has a denser feel to it overall, and whether it was soft and yielding or dry and firmer depended on the shade. It was a fairly pigmented formula that lasted for eight hours on me. Two shades were easy to work with and blend out, but one was more troublesome, so the quality wasn't consistent across the range.
