NYX Apricot HD Blush

NYX Apricot HD Blush ($16.50 for 0.25 oz. ) is medium-dark coral-red with a soft, satiny shimmer-sheen. The color initially reminded me of Chanel Rouge, which is certainly redder and more intense–with a light hand, they’re comparable. It also reminded me of the original MAC Posey and MAC Mighty Aphrodite. Benefit Bella Bamba is pinker.

What I’ve loved most about NYX’s line of HD blushes is their soft, super finely-milled powders; they’re silky, blendable, and fairly buildable. It’s a formula that makes it difficult to overdo it on; you have to be deliberate about greater intensity if that’s the color you desire, but it’s not difficult to achieve a more pigmented cheek. The downside to these blushes is the wear time, which is around six hours, at which point I start noticing it fade.

For an in-depth commentary on the packaging, please see my original review.

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

I think that you face swatches ARE REALLY helpful!
that we can see how actually do the products look on face.

And they’re fun and beautiful to see. I love to see how you match the product in a look (eventhough you said sometimes you just put it on without matching it with your other makeup)

I agree! I love the cheek swatches and find them to be very helpful. You and I both have similar skintones so it’s helpful to see a full faced picture. It’s easier to gauge whether a certain color would look good on me and thus have based many of my purchases on your cheek swatches. I’m sad to see them go. 🙁

They’re not entirely gone, but based on the results, they’re a very small part of blush reviews to most people, so if I don’t have one (these photos are a year old, and I had been waiting to someday do a cheek swatch), I should still post 🙂

I like this blush, but I have to agree- its def. not apricot in color and leaves me wondering why the name choice. I could see myself using this blush in the dead of winter to get that “flushed in the cold air” kinda look. Im glad I can get NYX brand at stores that offer great coupons tho, cause I wouldnt be purchasing the grinders if I had to pay full price!
