Bobbi Brown Apricot Blusher

I've had this blusher a very long time as you can tell by the shape of the packaging. Bobbi Brown blushers come in square packaging these days but the colour is still available as part of the permanent line. This look was from last week and I toyed with not posting this, I'm not 100% on the combination of colours but it's no good cherry picking the best bits! I'm only human and I've said before I often make mistakes with colour selections. Plus, I think this is a lovely blusher and well worth sharing with you.

On the Bobbi Brown website this is described as a bright apricot which I don't think is all that helpful in terms of shade description! It's certainly appears very bright in the pan and I think it sits somewhere between coral and hot pink. It's not as bright on the cheeks as you'd expect from the colour in the pan. It's certainly very wearable and quite a universal colour. I've included pictures in natual light and with flash so that you can hopefully get a good idea of how it looks on the cheeks.

  9. @Café Bellini: I love Satin Taupe, I don’t think I’ll ever get bored of it. Which BB blushers do you have? When I was checking the prices, I spotted some others which may warrant some investigation ;)

    @Ali: Thank you. I actually bought it after a make over I had done in preparation for my wedding. I only came away with this and Taupe eyeshadow but they were great choices. It’s my 4th Wedding Anniversary today so I suppose that shows how long I’ve had it!

    @Blushingloves: Thank you, I really like it. It’s definitely worth checking it out.

    @Bella Queen: It’s fuuny isn’t it, some colours just don’t look how you would expect from the pan. I think you said that was the case with NARS Taj Mahal? I hope my memory serves me correctly. If this hadn’t been used in a makeover I think I would have completely disregarded it.

    @Michelle: Ha ha! I think it’s one of those things that comes with having an extensive collection. ;)

    @Nicoletta: Thank you so much, I was a little worried that the lipstick was a little pale with against my face. I love the colour though.

    @Get Gawjus: Thanks, I really love it and should use it more often, it’s such a pretty flush of colour.

    @Fee: Ah, thank you! I love that make up can perk up my face. I definitely have been looking a little grey of late so perky blusher is essential!

    Thank you for all of the lovely comments,
