Per WnW, Sweep on this silky-smooth blush that strikes the perfect balance between a blendable transparent sheen and a radiant pop of maximum color. A special blend of treated nylon powders provides long-lasting color. Dermatologist-tested.
Today I will be reviewing the shade Pearlescent Pink
Pearlescent Pink is a nice peachy pink shade packed with golden shimmer. I bought mine at Walgreens when the sales lady told me that this was a close dupe for Nars “Or*asm” blush.
I also have the sleek Rose gold which is also called as a dupe for Nars “O” I forgot to take a swatch comparison of this WnW Pearlescent Pink n Sleek Rose gold but both of them look almost similar.
WnW PP is highly pigmented and blends well when applied. This shade is quite buildable
Though the blush is packed with golden shimmer (which is obviously visible in the swatch ) the shimmer is barely visible when applied and it leaves a hint of that “extra shine” and an “Oomph” factor if you know what I mean.
The blush lasts like solid for about 7 to 8 hours and I love the way it fades away leaving a hint of a color behind
The brush is just ok quality but I suggest you to use this blush with a good blush brush for a perfect finish and to do justice to the excellent color payoff it offers. 😀
The old packaging is a silver case with a small mirror and it’s quite sturdy and travel friendly.
The blush retails at $2.99 or Rs. 180 for 6.8 g/0.24 Oz
Not available in India but can be bought online from websites like nonpareilboutique or Ebay at your own discretion and risk 😀
Overall this is a wonderful blush and if you have this ultimate thirst of buying Nars “O” one day, please give this a try, who knows your thirst may quench here 😉
