Is this 3$ blush a dupe of Nars Orgasm? Wet N Wild Pearlescent Pink: Review and Swatches

If you ask me which makeup videos I'm addicted to on the YouTube,Dupes of High end products comes in the top 5 list for sure. While going through one such series I was enlightened that Wet n Wild Pearlescent Pink qualifies the category too. And that made me give this brand new baby from my Luxola haul a second glance.
No look is complete without that rosy glow on the cheeks (well I personally prefer peachy glow.. Kinda goes well with my complexion) A blush adds a youthful splash of colour to your face..IF applied correctly...And the blush in question today is Wet N Wild Pearlescent Pink!
Brand Claims:
Price Vs. Quantity:$2.99/4gms
 
Wet n Wild is a US brand known for its super pigmented n good quality products. I seriously wish Indian market offered us some good quality products which didn't burn a big hole in our handbags..Sighhhhh!!!

Pearlescent Pink comes in a regular plastic packaging with details at the back. The brush that comes along is crappy and that's nothing new! What's good is that it click locks,is light weight and sleek!I cant complain about the cheap packaging of a power packed $3 blush!

The Shade:
The shades available in this range are:
  • Pearlescent Pink
  • Heather Silk
  • Mellow Wine 
  • Berry Shimmer 
Pearlescent Pink is a beautiful peachy pinky corally blush. But somehow it appears more peachy in the pan than on my skin.  On my NC37 skin,it comes off more pink toned. Its fresh,its bouncy and its youthful. 
It has very finely milled gold shimmers that even being miniscule are pretty visible on the cheeks (Mind you they are shimmers not glitters). The shimmers make it more of a night time blush for me though they are super fine and would make you look all radiant and glowy even during the day. It is often claimed to be one of the Nars Orgasm dupe besides Sleek Rose Gold and Milani Luminoso among others. The swatches available online however show Pearlescent pink to be a little more pinkier than the Orgasm to me. Its more coral while Orgasm is more peachy! Still a dupe!
The blush has a very smooth texture,blends easily and is super duper pigmented..So ladies if you don't have a habit of blowing the brush after dipping in the pan...PLZ make a habit coz this power packed beauty has an immense capability of getting you a clown face if not applied carefully! 

Wrap-Up:
  • Beautiful Peachy Pink Blush 
  • Super Affordable
  • Fine texture
  • Highly pigmented
  • Fine beautiful gold shimmers
  • Long staying power
  • Claimed to be a Nars Orgasm Dupe.
  • Shimmers double up as a highlighter too
  • Blends like a dream
  • Non-indigenous :(
Over All Rating: 4.8/5

  3. Another interesting post Aditi. One thing baffles me is that, I do have Sleek's Rose Gold, but I think it looks more coral than 'rosy' or 'pink' to me. I don't know what's wrong, but, no matter how much I stare at it, I never feel it looks pink.
