I got given this as a gift. The colour looks crazy bright in the pan but I was told it's softer on your cheeks. Disappointingly, it wasn't... I'm fair skinned (01 Warm Ivory for Bobbi Brown) and this pink was too much for me. I tried to apply it very very lightly but it was still too bright. It was disappointing because the texture is really nice and I wanted to like it. However, if you have dark skin this colour would look great on you.
Better than MAC??
I have two of these blushers, Nectar and Coral. I like Coral because I almost always wear pink on my cheeks, and usually hate other shades of blusher, but this one is a nice change from the pink. Both blushers have lasted me a long time as I find I only need to use a small amount.
I have this blush for over a year now, in the color Coral Pink. This is my favorite blush. It is a bright pink coral blush with a little bit shimmer in it. Which gives me a beautiful glow on the apple of my cheeks.
High Quality Color
Apricot is a bright pink and you can increase its intensity by or use a light touch to just give you that flushed look. Sometimes I even apply a shimmer brick color over the blush and it gives me a nice glow. My only complaint is that you must be very careful because I dropped this compact on my tile floor and it blush shattered in a million pieces (still using it though...I just transferred to a zip lock where I just dip my blush brush into).
