This color wasn't what I expected, it's described as a bright apricot but on me it's like a fuschia/hot pink color. Albeit pretty, I feel like the color isn't particularly unique and can be found in other brands for much less. In fact, this looks similar to La femme blush in Framboseia except BB is matte and less bright. In comperance, I would say BB is higher quality than La femme because it isn't powdery and still has moderate pigmentation.
I see this color on working on many skin tones, from pale, brown to ebony complexions though.
I will not repurchase because as I stated, this color can be found in other lines for much less. $24 is too much.
Really gorgeous bright pink color. It's actually a lot like Urban Decay's Crush, for anyone who prefers a cream formula. The pigmentation on this blush is intense! The first time I tried it I looked like I had rosacea, which wasn't exactly the look I'd been aiming for! Use a light hand and it will be lovely though.
Really sweet blush pink when put on. I use it sparingly as it's very pigmented. Stipling method, then blend. I suspect this small box is gonna last me ages!:) One lippy less cos..i still worry about over-applying every time I use it.
Alarmingly pink in the pan. A definite flat raspberry. A light touch is required here to achieve anything that borders on the natural. Clown-like scenarios more likely.
Don't be frightened of this color-- yes, in the container it's shocking! When applied w/ a light hand it blends very well and is gorgeous. I've seen this on all skin colors. My sis who is a NC20 wears this in the summer and one of my colleagues who is a NC45 also pulls it off. Just depends on the application. Also, no shimmer so it looks very natural and can be worn to work
Oh Apricot Blush, how I love thee? You are truly my HG blush. It's this neon vibrant pink with orange that when applied on tanned skins you get this beautiful Glowy cheek. It's soooooo beautiful. Sometimes I use MUFE HD Cream Blush in #6 just to prolong the wear although sometimes I really don't need to.
"Apricot" -- one of the most beautiful colors I have ever seen -- is described as "a bright apricot," but it's actually more predominantly pink, not peachy. I would describe it as a bright, hot pink with a hint of peach -- and even that does not do it justice in terms of how lovely a color it really is. I think it is a wearable shade for a range of complexions, fair to deep, warm to cool, because the color can be built up or sheered out for different effects.
Apricot is one of the shades with which I have to use a stippling brush, because it would be too bright otherwise, but when I do, it's subtle and perfectly workable on someone with my coloring (or lack thereof!). My complexion seems to glow -- I love it!
For reference: NW5-10; NARS Siberia.
I love Bobbi's blushes because they are so finely milled! This one, however, just is too bright and too red toned for me and doesn' tlook natural. I will stick with Desert Pink, Desert Rose, and Pale Pink. I don't like the packaging - you get so little (it's a blush but as small as an eyeshadow), and it's too small for my normal blush. This would work great for someone with darker skin probably (Im about NW25).
I bought this product on the basis of raging reviews and of great recommendations from friends. However, this colour doesn't work very well on girls with olive skin. The colour comes on very strong with just a slight touch and it looks too red on my skin tone.
It was my first time to use Bobbi Brown products and the Sales Lady has recommended me this blush. I was shocked as the color is hot pink! I am Asian with fair skin and I do not want to look like a doll with a hot pink blush. BUT!!! Suprisingly when she applied it on me. It is a nice warm pink. It looks like natural blush. I love it! And I have used it ever since.
