Nice blush! Beautiful color. Very pigmented, use a very light hand when picking up product. Will last forever, so most likely will not need to repurchase, but would if I ran out. This is the 3rd LG blush I own and all are fantastic.

Overall, I love the healthy glow that this product gives me with just a bit of shimmer. I had been wanting to try a blush that leaned towards apricot/peach, but wasn't ready to jump into something that seemed more dramatic like Tarte's Blissful or Tipsy. This turned out to be exactly the color I was looking for. An apricot glow that still managed to look natural on my very fair complexion. A little goes a long way -- I'll rebuy when the time comes, but this is a ton of product. I haven't made a dent in it yet and I have been using it for months.
As with most Laura Geller products, the packaging leaves much to be desired in terms of aesthetics -- but it does the job.

I don't understand where people are getting anything with this blush compared to Orgasm by nars. This blush is sooo beyond that.
This is a sunkissed beach with goddess glitter and glow. Get yourself an amazing tan and pop this on your cheeks. Nothing is more flattering. This is the best blush I own... and I own a TON of high end blush.
Price - I think it came in a baked kit of some kind. I like that lauras products come in kits. Kits make it easy to create looks and you get more bang for your bucks.
Quality is top notch.

I must admit I was rather wishy-washy about getting Laura Geller's Blush-n-Brighten blushes at first. Three weeks later, I revisited the idea and finally gave in. Boy, am I ever glad I did! Her BnB blushes are absolutely gorgeous, simply put. I have tried Golden Apricot and also purchased Apricot Berry and Pink Grapefruit at the same time. Golden Apricot is so completely stunning, flattering and captivating that it's all I keep picking up ever since it came into my possession. I haven't given equal opportunity and attention to the other two BnB's, sadly.
First off, Golden Apricot is one of those swirly type of blushes, comprising a glowy satiny tanned gold and a coral pink. It's exactly the color you'd imagine a sun-drenched apricot to be. I'd put this one in the warm family, but I really think it works for everyone as I'm cool-toned and somehow it still works its warm-toned magic on my cool-toned face. This shade is universally flattering and relevant. It's pretty enough in the pan but completely comes alive and knocks your socks off once applied to cheeks. It gives your face this luminous and healthy sunkissed glow that makes you look like you just spent two weeks on a Caribbean island. I can't praise this baby enough - she is as beautiful as they come!
It's a bit pricey but I got mine from eBay for a decent price so I saved some bucks by not having to pay retail. Also, despite the higher price point, the amount you get for the price is enormous (0.32 oz. / 9 grams)! One blush should last you for a long time. I loved this first one so much I got four more different colors just last night even though I haven't touched the other two yet. I am so glad I finally gave this line a chance, it's definitely a sleeper!

Golden Apricot is beautiful to look at, and I like my makeup to be pretty. This blush looks much darker in the pan than it comes out on my skin, no matter what brush I use, if I use my fingertips, or if I use a flocked sponge. For me, it's more of a brightener than a blush. I use this the way fairer skinned users can apply BeneFit Georgia (which looks white on my skin) to add a warm peachy glow. If I want to use this as blush, however, it's close, but not quite. If I try to layer it in order to get more pigment, instead I seem to get shimmer instead of the soft-focus glow I get from Apricot Berry and Boysenberry. This is one of those frustrating products that looks fantastic on the back of my hand but looks completely different, and not so good, on my face, (sound familiar, Coralista?) Apricot Berry turned out to be what I wanted Golden Apricot to be. I probably won't repurchase this, but I do enjoy using it under foundation or mixed with foundation to add a little warmth to my skin when I'm turning green from lack of sunlight.

I got this for myself last summer when I had the red thing on my head.. and it was stunning.
I wore this almost all summer, sometimes adding a bit or pink blush and some pinky/coral lip gloss. It is a great color especially for redheads and honey blondes.
Love this product and will always have one on hand. The LG packaging is a bit puny but again, this is something one can overlook for such a great product.

Obviously, this Laura Geller blush is gorgeous! I absolutely love the packaging, how pretty it looks in it's container, beautiful! It goes on very nice, swept across the cheeks, and looks very nice on my fair skin :) I am not sure if i will be re-purchasing this particular one, i will probably try another shade, but over all i am i huge fan of the Laura Geller blush-n-brighten line, you should try it! :)

This brand sold me on the idea of a “baked cosmetic”. It was difficult to choose a shade but in the end, I chose the only one available at the time from www.beauty.com. I expected a golden pinkish hue…instead, I got all pink with just a itsy bitsy teeny weeny hint of gold. Boo! The pink is cute; it’s perfect for summer. I need two or three swipes across the cheek just for the color to show up on my skin. To give you some idea, I’m the same complexion as model Tyra Banks. It’s not a bad blush. Perhaps a different color would have been better. From the looks of the container, this blush will last well over a year. At least I got my money’s worth. Once it’s done, I will not repurchase.

This adds a nice glow if you use a light touch. Using it as you would a regular blush is a little frustrating because it really changes according to the light. What looks right in my house can look like too much or not enough elsewhere, and it can be way too shiny in certain lights. I'll keep this but probably wouldn't buy again.

Extremely beautiful in the packaging, unfortunately the color is waaaaaaaay too dark for my skin and I'm asian, one good thing is that I have a box of Benefit's Dandelion that I seldom use so I layer Dandelion on top of the Laura Geller and this combi does come out as a very pretty pinky bronze color but this is just too much work in the mornings when I am still bleary-eyed and rushing off to work.

Product - Gorgeous baked blush in a mix of bronze, gold, and rose. Each has unique veining and proportions of color due to the production process. Mine has more bronze and gold and less rose than I would have liked. On my cheeks (AAB/NC25) it also wears as a golden-bronze peach. Definitely a warm color. Surprisingly well pigmented, so I have to apply this with a light hand or risk looking overdone or muddy. The finish is not shimmery, but a nice glowy sheen.
Comparisons - Similar to LG Blush-N-Brighten in Sunswept, but this lacks the pink tones and thus wears as a warmer shade overall. Similar to NARS Torrid but with more golden tones and less pink.
Packaging - Full size is 0.32 oz (9 g) and retails for $29.50. There is a set/kit medium size of 0.176 oz (5 g) and a kit/GWP size of 0.06 oz (1.8 g). I got this in a swap in the medium size (0.176 oz), and the packaging is a round, black plastic flip-top with a clear semicircle window in the lid to show off the product inside and semicircular mirror under the lid.
Overall - Surprisingly well pigmented. Great if you are warm toned and love bronzer-and-blush-in-one.

I'm surprised that there aren't more great reviews for this product. For starters, I usually don't wear powder blushes and prefer Nars cream blush, but I received this as a gwp so I thought that I would give it a shot. I am so glad that I tried this, I have been looking for great warm toned peach and apricot blushes and this color is perfect. I'm not sure how much variation there is among each compact, but in mine there are mostly mid toned apricot shades marbled with gold and a touch of coral. For me the end result is apricot which is very warm in tone, with a slight golden sheen. The claim that anyone can use these colors is silly, if you typically don't like or wear warm tones, then why would this product be different? I saw a baby cakes blush palette on Laura's site, which includes 4 blush-n-brighten shades and if you are thinking of trying out these blushes, then that would be a fun start.

I saw Laura applying this blush on the model on QVC and it looked sooo gorgeous. I purchased this and Pink Grapefruit blush. When it arrived, the color turned to be a lot redder than it seemed on QVC website. On me (NC 20-25) it looks a little bit too red and bright, I need to be very light-handed. I thought it would look more apricot / golden, hence the name. The pan that I got has very little golden / apricot color, most of the pan is red. Not pink, red. Anyways with a very very light hand this looks good. Makes me look like I've spent a few hours under the sun.

I got this for free from Beauty.com as part of a free gift bag that came with other products as well. I was surprised to receive the full size and not just a sample. That's about $30 FREE for this product alone =) Anyways, the blush is beautiful. It has pretty packaging -black circular container with a "window" that takes up half of the front displaying the inside product. "Laura Geller makeup" is displayed underneath with the company's "lips" icon/logo. When you open it up, the top lid has a mirror that fills the top half (the bottom half is just the see-through plastic that allows you to see the inside blush when the compact is closed.) I feel like I might break this if I dropped it though. Inside the compact, the blush displays a pattern of pretty swirls in corals, salmons, peaches, pinks, bronzes, coppers, and light browns. On my medium-tan skin, it shows up as a "redder" peachy pink with a pinch of shimmer. It looks fairly natural. It's overall a "so-so" item and I personally would not buy this for $30 but will use it here and there. I'd rather go with Nars, it's cheaper and it looks a lot better when worn.

Very bright. Too much and I look like a clown and the line between just enough and too much is very thin. There is way too much shimmer and sparkle in this for me. I was hoping for something to just give me a little glow but this isn't it. I thought the colors would be good for my Asian-toned skin but it's too bright and bold. Not for me.

I was wowed by this product when I saw it on QVC, so I purchased it. To my disappointment, it looks orangy on me, but not if I apply just a little bit (like a really small amount). My children however, looks great in this so I allow them to wear it once in a while. I will not be repurchasing this item.

Wow. What a great find from LG. I have never, ever purchased a product from her line, but at Sephora I stumbled upon this gorgeous blush. The pretty swirls of pink/gold/bronze and peach with slight shimmer caught my eye. In a nutshell, it is all the things I wanted NARS Orgasm and all of it's dupes to be. The perfect, peachy pink GLOW. Love it.

I'm completely new to this brand, I've only seen it on QVC and in some magazines. I like all of the baked collection, the swirls of color are beautiful and each is different. I won this blush in a set, so I'm not sure if I'd pay for it. It is a gorgeous swirl of coral, bronze, pinks and browns.
Just a little goes a long way, and this is amazing on cheeks for the summer!!! It gives you a glow and pretty color.

I love Laura Geller Blushes. I have a ton of them, for all the different seasons. I use this one in the summer/fall, because it looks best with a tan, otherwise I think the color is too strong. It gives you a bronzy glow with some red and pink mixed in. There's some subtle shimmer and sparkles in it, so be aware when you buy it. That's what I love about it though, because I haven't found another blush like this one. I would definitely buy it again.
