Bobbi Brown Blush Apricot Review + Swatches

Of all the years i have owned Bobbi Browns blush in apricot, i have never thought to review it until now! Apricot was one of my first Bobbi Brown blushes and it's one i still enjoy using!

Apricot is a vibrant pinky coral and seems so bright in the pan, however on the skin it's a different story! This blush is very sheer but can be built up and it has a matte finish, which gives long lasting wear.

It has a very silky formula and isn't chalky or powdery. It applies extremely well and looks stunning on dark skin tones (especially when it's on the apples of the cheeks). I find it super easy to blend and it's a blush that you can't over apply. I find myself building up the colour on my cheeks, to give it a more pinky glow! I either use a MAC 187 or MAC 168 brush.

The blush comes in simple, plain plastic packaging and has a clear top, so you can see the colour of the product. Unfortunately just like the MAC blushes, there is no mirror.

Left-Right: Heavily swatched, blended.

This blush pretty much lasts on my skin all day, i apply it at 7.30am and it's still there at 5pm! The blush doesn't go patchy or blotchy and clings to your skin all day. Apricot is a shade that goes well with all skin tones but because of the coral, it looks fabulous on warmer skin. The £19 price tag may put people off, but i have had this for yonks and still haven't hit pan!

  1. Do you change your blushers within 2 years or do you wait for it to finish? i have lots of blushers which are expensive & ive been told that i should change them within 2 years or else it goes out of date

  2. Thanks for this reminder! I have a pan of Apricot lurking in my drawer which I haven't touched for aaages. With summer on it's way down here in South Africa I'll definitely be taking this out
