Review: Wet n' Wild Ultimate Minerals Loose Blush Pinched Pink (shade 163)

This is my first mineral makeup and being such a no-expert when it comes to makeup, I was kinda doubtful about this. And since I am a kind of person who tries to find out more about a product first before buying, I checked out to get the assessment of various people who are using or have used Wet n' Wild Ultimate Minerals Loose Blush. Out of 22 people, 86% said that they would buy the product again. For me, that is enough to give this product a go.

The product is packed in hard plastic transparent container that has a sifter with snap top cover that is connected to the container and silver gray lid thus it is less likely to spill all over your bag. To avoid mess when using this product, I open the snap top cover and tap a small amount into the gray lid and work my way from there.

I have this in pinched pink (shade 163) and is very pigmented hence one only needs very little amount to get that pinkish health glow. This shade is not shimmery and goes on smoothly thus perfect if you want to create natural look. One thing I do not like about this product is the smell but I am not sure if that is what mineral-based formula smells like. The smell is not that horrible though however I would prefer unscented or clean-smelling makeup.

When I got this from eBay, the seller stated that it is made and bought in the US. However, upon receiving this product and reading the product information, I discovered that this makeup from a US company is made in China. Probably the seller indeed bought it from the US not knowing that the product is actually made in China (hello outsourcing?). But that really doesn't matter to me. So long as it won't give me allergies or skin irritation (and it hasn't happened so far), I'd continue using this product and would probably buy again if my current one runs out.
