Pretty matte warm pink, brightens up the face, but wouldn't repurchase as there are many other blushes out there that do the same.
I have tried this blush (Apricot) and Nars (Orgasm) and Orgasm has got nothing on my Bobbi Brown apricot.
Apricot gives my skin, which is tan-brown in tone, that youthful glow that all the magazines profess about and women covet.Don't get me wrong, I think orgasm is lovely. But for me, there is no comparison.
It is also nice for an everyday look, or for those days you want that natural fresh-faced look.
I absolutely recommend it for women who have tan or brown skin:)
RMS' Smile is an almost exact dupe of this, except maybe a tad pinker. I like RMS' better, even though it's a bit pricier, because it requires no brush, is all natural, and can go on my lips. I still may repurchase this, even though I don't prefer powder blushes, because it is a beautiful shade.
It looks shockingly unwearable so I would never get it if not swatches on internet.
Very simple packaging, amazing powder quality and it lasts all day on my cheeks. The colour looks so natural on, of course its easy to put too much and look like babushka.
On my light-medium skin it looks so fresh and natural. Loving it!
I love this blush, the color looks very intense but when you apply it on your skin gives you this natural glowing look, very easy to apply and as is very pigmented you will use a very small amount each time so last forever.
I'm acquiring a stash of Bobbi Brown products and this blush is the latest addition to my collection.
As I'm approaching the big 5-0 (yikes!), I need that bright pop of colour to avoid looking tired and I can't pull off the shimmer like I used to so this is where Bobbi Brown's matte powder blushes fit the bill.
It's a bright pink coral that gives my cheeks a nice, healthy flush of colour. It would look beautiful on tanned skin.
The staying power is good and lasts for nearly the whole day. As with other Bobbi Brown blushes, a little goes a long way to avoid the 'clown' look.
I'm on my second one right now and It's a nice peachy blush for tanned skin. It's best if you apply a thin layer first as it is really pigmented. I find that the formula itself isn't the best as it's not as smooth as other products out there. Packaging is subpar if you intend to carry this around. The closure isn't very tight and some of the powder will fall out of the package with use.
I am a blue-eyed NW10 (NW20 when tanning from a bottle).
This blush looks hot pink in the case, but turns into a warm coral pink if you apply it right. Looks GREAT on NW20, harder to pull off on NW10 because of the warmth. I use this as my "face brightening" blush in the summer, and use Tarte's Natural Beauty as my "face brightening" blush in the winter. I prefer Tarte's case because you get more products and it's not as flimsy and has a built in compact mirror. Additionally, this blush seems a little harder to blend when you apply. Therefore, one lippie off. But truely a great product. Have used for 2 summers and there is barely a dent. EDIT: This has similar effect as the Smashbox blush, Radiance. Love them both - HG status. Looks great when blended out with a bronzer also.
Yes, yes, yes! For reference, I am 6.5/Warm Almond in BB and NC50 in Mac. This blush is named apricot but it looks bright pinkish in the pan. I definitely would not have chosen this myself. However, I was pleasantly surprised at how natural looking it was when the MUA applied it. When applied, it gives a pinkish flushed glow and really complimented my skin tone! Donít be afraid to try this if you have a deeper complexion. I imagine that it works on many ranges of skin tone. The MUA that helped me said itís her go-to blush and she has fair skin/hair. Itís sheer with buildable coverage, so donít let the actual color of the blush scare you away. At $24, it is pricey but I canít see myself running out anytime soonÖ.Being the product junkie I am, Iíll probably find a new product that I canít live without before actually running out of this blush. Anyway, the next time you stop by a BB counter, give this a try!
I love this blush. I have this and Nars exhibit A and I prefer this over exhibit A. My face looks bright after application and the lasting power is good. Love love love and highly recommended. Buy it if you like red blush but dun want anything crazily pigmented.
