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.

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.

Don't get me wrong, I genuinely love this product. It is pigmented, goes on smoothly, awesome staying power, and does not irritate my sensitive skin or break it out. The only thing is that the color is too strong and red for my complexion. It looks as if I've been sunburned and orangified. This might work better for a fairer individual or with a cooler complexion, but on olive skin, it just makes me look darker

This color is very pigmented and a little goes along way. I like my cheeks to have a matte pink tone to it and this blush happens to give me what I want. I just love the color and I don't need to pack a lot on my brush to get the color I want out of this blush. It stays on my cheeks for a long time and I don't need to touch up that much. LOVE IT! (:

The color is very pretty on me. I use it in conjunction with another color, putting the apricot right on the apple of my cheeks for an extra pop. It looks great. I use a very light hand as it can overwhelm if too much is applied.
