I got this product as a gift and I loved it for spring! It is a really pretty color but you have to be careful as a ton of product comes out when you only need very little to get the point across. My main complaint is the packaging. I would repurchase if it weren't so expensive. The color is great for fair skin and would even compliment a tanner face tone.

I managed to snag this gem for $6 on eBay. It yields an absolutely gorgeous flush on my NC20 skin and I am hooked. As others have mentioned though, it can be a bit difficult to work with since the holes in the sifter are gigantic and you definitely don't need that much of this super-pigmented product. I saved the clear sticker from a Maybelline Mineral Illuminator (which was horrible btw), place it over all the holes, then took a safety pin and punched only a few to the extent that I needed. I could have punched holes in the original white sticker it came with, but I didn't realize the sifter would be such an issue until after the fact. Anyway -- the color is an intensely bright pinky-coral that intimidated me at first. But loading up my Eco-tools blush brush with a small amount and tapping the brush against my cheek gently, I can get the perfect application and color. It's gorgeous. It instantly makes my complexion glow and brightens up my face without looking garish. Lasts all day too; doesn't fade like some other blushes do. Spring, summer, fall, winter -- this is a blush I would say works for all seasons in the year. And the generous 9.3g jar is going to last me many years to come.

I got this in a swap and OMG the color is awesome!!! It's a bit dark for my fair skin BUT definitely doable!! I just need to be careful and use VERY little product or else I'll look like I overdid the blush. Color is a pretty peach and it makes my face look very healthy!!

This is a really nice coral color that perks up my nw 20 skintone without looking muddy like more brownish colors do. It does not have any irritating ingrediences for my skin, but it does not stay on specially long time if I apply it on powdered face. It is easy to layer and adjust the color. EDIT: This feels horribly drying on the skin every time I put it on.

Apricot Face Tint is a loose powder blush. It's not exactly apricot... it's more a coral color (it's decidedly pinker than MAC Nuance, which I consider apricot). It is a gorgeously natural looking neutral-to-warm blush on my ~NC30-35 skintone. It gives me that just-come-in-from-the-cold look.
The texture of this blush is very nice though I can see some people having trouble with it. The blush itself is pigmented, but since it is loose, it is a little hard to work with. I use the Ecotools small blush (or powder) brush which comes in the mineral set for this, since it's much floofier and softer than the full size. I can definitely see someone having trouble getting this blush to work if they used a denser/harder brush. I blend out with the f/s powder brush. Wear time is great for me (I use DDF Organic Sun Protection as a primer), though I do think it fades slightly more than my pressed blushes (easily lasts 8+ hours on me though).
The jar that it comes in is pretty messy. I had to tape over 2/3 of the holes and am seriously consider taping over all but one (especially since I store the blush on its side to save space rather than on it's bottom). You get a HUGE amount of product in the jar though, and I quite honestly expect that it'll last me forever. I did say that I would buy again since I am quite happy with the blush, but if I could find something of the same color pressed... I would probably be more likely to buy that in the future. I would give this a 4.5 if I could.

I rarely ever purchase costly makeup without the wise words of MUA, but I got this on a (very costly) birthday celebratory whim. When it was gently swabbed onto my cheeks, I realized how clownish my previously pink powder and red liquid blushes had looked. I didn't see it and say "Oh, what a pretty color!" I saw it and said, "...I look nice."

this stuff is dc'ed already. i got it when the LM SA ordered it with her stuff card & she sell it for me $5 cheaper than the original price lol.
Pros: very blendable, make your cheeks glow beautifully, very pigmented & good staying power as well. the powder is very finely-milled.
Cons: i hate the packaging honestly,it's a hassle for me to pour the powder carefully through the many little holes.. how i wish this blush is in pressed powder form.
Price: it's about $29 USD IIRC, very reasonable IMO with the amount you get. you get 10g & it will take forever to finish this.
Packaging: in a large & quite bulky jar with sifter.. it has 'Laura Mercier' written on the side of the lid.
Color: well, the name says it all,apricot. it's a peach-pink coral,i would say.
Application: i apply this with my MAC 168. i dab the brush on the lid, then tap off the excess & apply on the cheeks,continue with buffing so it will look natural. ♥
UPDATE: i prefer NARS Gilda over LM Apricot tint.. stays on longer & not as messy..

This gives a healthy, peachy-coral flush to my very fair cheeks, blending into the skin to give a seemless and natural flush. I suspect it will work well for every skin tone. While it has become my favorite blush, I do wish it lasted a bit longer. This is potent, so apply lightly--too much of a good thing...

Nice, corally pink that livened up my olive skin. I used to use it almost daily but the packaging is a hassle -- it spills every where and the lid isn't tight enough or something. But it's a great matte shade, that you can use w/ highlighter or bronzer.

This is packaged like many other mineral products, loose, in a small jar, with a sifter. So, the first thing I did was repackage it so as to use it the way I like to use loose powder colors. (See my notepad.) This powder is soft and silky, and much more sheer than you might expect. It is a bright gerbera daisy coral in the jar, which buffs to a soft apricot-coral on the face. It has some shimmer, but does not "read" shimmery on the skin. Highly pigmented, the color lasts and lasts. I am an NW15-20. This is a lovely warm shade for summer skin, and gives depth to the color achieved with my self tanner.

This is so pretty. I was expecting a bright pure pigment that would be hard to apply but this is mixed with LM's translucent powder (according to the description) which explains the subdued, and easier to apply color. It's gorgeous!! A soft but pronounced "flush" type shade on my currently uber pale NC15 skintone (dior 100, GA FF#1). it's not clown-ish at all and has no shimmer which i appreciate :-) it brightens my complexion and when applied with a 187 is really quite subtle. I understand all of these great reviews now. (thanks to the reviewer who suggested the pinholes. worked perfectly!)

This is a beautiful bright pinky coral loose powder blush. Hate the powder format, and the packaging (one lippie less for that, although I now read there's away to get round the packaging problem... se other reviews for this) but the truth is that it gives you the nicest healthiest flush ever. It's easy to build up (you wont start off as a clown) and the powder blends easily into your skin.
I'm not the palest gal around and this blush still shows up pretty well on my skin. Although its matte (at least I can't see any glitter in this powder) it gives you a glow, mainly because of the color.
I adore Nars Torrid, and Deep Throat, as well as Makeup store Lush blush. Apricot face tint is similar to all those shades in that they are glowy and refreshing. I find this color very appropriate for spring & summer, although I wear it all year round (even to the office).
Staying power is not as good as NARS blushes for instance. But the color is so lovely I don't mind and would def. repurchase this if I ran out.

Thankyou ladies. I bought this based on reviews alone and love it. I have pale yellow toned skin. This gives me the perfect healthy glow. I didn't remove the cover as recommended above, just punched out a few of the holes with a pin, so I'm in total control of how much I'm applying. Not messy at all. Can see this will last ages too. Love it!
I use this over LM tinted moisturiser in Nude, TLeClerc loose powder in Banane.
I've now got my perfect trio

Wow! this may be the closest I've come to a Holy Grail blush. And again, never would have tried without the faith I have in all you ladies at MUA!!
Absolutely gorgeous bright-but-natural apricot. I look like I'm glowing with this on, but not like there's makeup there. My only gripe is the packaging. Not a fan of the loose powder with sifter for colors. I'll definitly repurchase if I ever manage to use it all (or spill it all :) When I got it home, the paper over the sifter wasn't attached and there was powder everywhere.
For reference, I'm a light olive undertone, red cheeks from sun damage, with dark hair and very dark brown eyes.

I bought this in blushing tint and love it love it love it
I've been looking for a good powder blush that doesn't wear off 1/2 hour after I put it on.
The color is bright in the container but goes on natural. you only need to use a tiny amount to get great color!
The packaging doesn't bother me so much because honestly this stuff stays on for several hours, so I don't feel the need to lug it around with me.
I have only skin and this has is very light, does not cause more oil, and stays on. One container will easily last months as long as you don't spill it.

The secret to keeping this wonderful blush color from being too messy is to leave the white plastic covering on and punch about four holes through it with a pin. When you want to use it, turn it over once or twice, twist off the cap and use what filters into the well of the cap. If you need more, repeat process or punch another hole or two in the covering.
Hope this tip is helpful!

I have pale skin and it gives me the perfect warm glow without looking like I'm wearing makeup. Even when I get some color in the summer or wear it with bronzer, it looks great.

This again is another high end splurge that I love..I am fair complected with cool/neutral tones and this gives me a soft glow to my face. I hate applying blush, even light colors seem to be too much for me then I have to wipe half off my face. Not with this tint..I apply as I normally would apply blush and it looks perfect! Will repurchase if I ever need to since I barely have to use any and it may last forever!

I thought this was too bright. I compared it with Nectar, and the Nectar is much more natural looking and is in the same color family. Definitely not for fair to light skin tones, might be better suited for medium to dark complexions.

At first, i thought the color was way too bright for my pale skin. I'm a NW20, El 1N1. But applying with a light hand using a blush brush, it went really sheer and gave me a healthy glow. The only problem I had was while lifting the protective tape. The plastic cap lifted together and I almost made a mess. But nothing happened. Reallt nice color, but I can use it only as blush. If i use it all over my face it will be too strongly colored.
