I absolutely adore this color! This is very much like Nars Deep Throat, but at a teeny tiny fraction of the price! I do, however, ABHOR the packaging. If only the cover was attached with a hinge or something, I could stash it in my purse, but it's way too inconvenient for touch-ups on the go.

I used this blush for about 9 or 10 years......so thats gotta say something!! The color is a pinkish-peach and would definately work for a wide range of skin tones,particularly tanned, medium to medium-dark complexions. Its goes on....not quite sheer...but not too heavy either. Althought it is not at all dificult to over do it with this blush. I found that after a couple of coats this would still look very sheer and then one more coat and BOOM!!!! Clown Face!
Another plus is that its also pretty smooth for a 2.99 blush....it can look mildly uneven, especially at the end of the day...but nothing terrible, for 2.99 it was fantastic.
The only reason I stopped using this blush after nearly 10 years was I was looking for a color that was more sheer neutral tan with very light peach undertones and NO PINK whatso ever, as i feel a color like that is much more flattering on me. Rimmel does not have a color like that so I had to look else where. I did find a more suitable color for myself elsewhere, but I still keep an emergency pan of this around. Its great stuff!

Perfect color, perfect price! My HG blush. I often use a little bronzer on my cheeks and layer this blush over it. It's subtle on my tanned skin but with just the right amount of color- a natural looking flush. Love it!

It reminds me of NARS blush in Deep Throat. This blush isn't really pigmented....so you have to pile it on to get some color. If you put it on really lightly you could use it as a highlighter(it looks like a pinker version of MAC Vanilla pig imo)

i must say i love it. sheer, not too heavy, keeps me looking glowy fresh. package sucks lol with the lid was attached but its not too bad.

This is a divine blush that gives me a very healthy glow. It made me rediscover my love for blush in general and how much it can add to ones makeup look (despite owning close to nearly 40 blushes I would say, I have been going blush-less 98% of the time for months now, don't know why).
I don't know why it took me so long to purchase this after I have been hearing raves for it for literally YEARS now. I guess maybe b/c I thought it wouldn't be anything that special, but it a wonderful slightly shimmery peach shade with a bit of pink. I do own NARS Deep Throat also and as far as the comparisons go, they are definitely in the same color family and if you have one you probably don't need the other. I think I actually like Apricot better than Deep Throat if I had to choose b/c the color just seems to look fresher on my skintone. Perhaps b/c it is a bit more sheer. Deep Throat is definitely more pigmented.
I don't mind the packaging and the formula is sheer yet buildable and goes on smoothly. Word of warning though, I did see all the Rimmel blushes on clearance recently so they might be doing something to them...if you really love you might want to keep an eye out and stock up in case they do something awful to these great blushes.

I don't hate this, but I don't love it either. It's kind of a strange orangey color on me, but maybe it'll look better during summer. The shimmer isn't overwhelming. Packaging's not awful, but not really convenient. I do like the subtlety of the color.

i love this blush, its the one i reach for the most often when im putting on my "day" look. im asian, medium, with definite yellow-olive undertones and this gives me a nice natural flush (which i never do, so it adds colour to my face without being too bright or garish). theres a slight shimmer, but its more like a soft sheen, and theres no obvious glitter
at first, i didnt like it much. i usually use the Alima #12 blush brush, which was too soft to pick up colour from pressed blush, as it is rather solidly packed together. i felt like i was damaging my brush and that i couldnt really get any colour payoff from it. but i recently dug up an old stiffer/denser blush brush and i found that its perfect for applying this blush. i get enough colour that i only have to swipe my cheeks once or twice with it, which cuts my time for makeup application
packaging-wise, i have no issues with it. i rarely carry makeup around in my purse (too lazy to, and i dont like fiddling with touchups in the bathroom) so its ok. not great, but alright.
staying power: its ok. i set my makeup with a facial spritz (energy water or some other product, depending on what i have on hand) and i find it keeps the blush on longer
i would def repurchase sometime in the future, and am excited about trying out the other colours. for the price, its really worth a try

I got this because I read here that it was a dupe for NARS' Deep Throat. I don't know what the exact color of Deep Throat is like so I can't say how close the match is, but Apricot is a really nice peachy color. It's not a dull peach but more of a slightly glowy peach since there's a little shimmer in it (but it's not really noticeable). It isn't too pigmented but it does show up on me if I get a lot of it on my brush. Also, as another reviewer mentioned, there are weird tiny bumps on the blush and I'm not sure what those are but it doesn't seem to affect anything. I like to use this blush when I feel like being more plain and natural.

This was very pretty on my very pale skin, sheer enough that I didn't look like a clown, silky enough so that it looked sheer and glowy as opposed to hard and chalky. Any more coverage on my skin would look (and has looked) riddiculous, and I can layer these shades without caking them on. They also don't come with thoses nasty little brushes, who actually uses them anyways? I didn't need to blend at all with my big, soft, fluffly brush! Packaging sucks though, that's this product's downfall.These were on sale for $2.99 (CAN) and I picked two up and so far love them both. For that price, I'm picking up a couple more!

This is a nice blush. Note, I didn't say drugstore blush as over the years I am beginning to realize that you can find a cheaper dupe of anything that is out there, so why should I spend 25.00 for blush at the department store. I will put the 21.00 I save into my 401K account and retire early. All you young gals out there should think about saving now while you're still young.
Seriously, this is a nice product and a lovely natural looking color if you like a peachy look. I like to use this over a rosey color, just on the apples. It really perks up my whole face. I use a fiber optic blush brush for best application. Nice for 40 something ladies because it is soft and natural, no glitter of shimmer.

I bought this because I wanted a peachy color. For some reason, I have a very hard time finding a peach blush that doesn't look like I have dirt smudged on me. This is a VERY sheer color but that is good. I can layer it on to develop the color to what I want. It looks good on me (light/medium skin with brown hair and hazel eyes) even though pinks look MUCH better on me. For me, it is a nice color for a casual day or a neutral day. The only reason I took a lippee off was due to the packaging...it sucks to say the least. I will definitely buy this again.

This blush deserves all the rave reviews it receives! A great blush at a great price ($1.99!) That being said...The packaging is cheap and hard to work with. The blush itself looks horrible but incredibly goes on smoothly and has good pigment. I took off one lippy because the product itself looks so bad - chalky, old, and bumpy in the pan (and again the ridiculous packaging). But I would still repurchase and recommend this product.
UPDATE: I still love this blush but unfortunately I think this color has been discontinued! It looks like Rimmel updated the packaging but changed the shades it now offers in this blush. Stock up on Apricot if you can find it!

Really nice peach, bronzey color without too much shimmer. Yes, like others have said it is an absolute nightmare to get the top off, but I do like how small and slim it is. It is very thin and doesn't come with some crappy brush to take up even more room in my makeup bag.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Acne-prone, Fair-Medium Hair: Blond, Wavy Eyes: Blue
This blush gives a nice glow. Doesn't show up a lot on my NC25 skin, but it's a light peachy pink that gives my cheeks a sheer flush of color (what I imagine NARS Orgasm would look like on me). It's a nice spring/summer blush but nothing to write home about. I wish the packaging was easier to open, but the price can't be beat.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
Rimmel products are so oily and sheer. such a waste of money no matter what color you get, it all looks the same after an hour.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
this stuff looks pretty good on my light/medium asian skin. gives it a nice peachy/pink glow. however, it's not very pigmented and i have to put on more than usual for it to show up. if my crappy brush isn't to blame (i will find this out after i use a better one), i would definitely recommend this to blush amateurs since it's kind of goof-proof. that is, if they can get over the terrible packaging. i'll probably repurchase this because it seems good enough to have around for backup.

I bought this blush online, and on the computer it looked more peachy, apricoty, or corally. When i got it, it looked more like a bronzey pink, which isn't ugly, just not apricot. I still liked this blush and I use it during sunny days because it does have a slight bronze look. My only complaint is that there's some glitter in the blush and I hate glitter on my face, but it could be worst.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Normal Hair: Brown Eyes: Green
I know that one of the big complaints here is the packaging's-and to get around that I actually de-potted mine and stuck it in a MAC e/s pan (with the e/s thing taken out). So I have no complaints about the packaging, because it lasted 2.5 seconds for me :)
That said, I love this blush more then a lot of my more expensive ones. I wear it with shimpagne msf and it gives a great glow :)
