Rare Beauty Nearly Apricot Stay Vulnerable Melting Cream BlushRare Beauty Nearly Apricot Stay Vulnerable Melting Cream Blush ($21.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a light-medium orange with moderate, warm undertones and a satin finish. It had sheer to semi-sheer color coverage, which was slightly buildable, but it was better applied in one layer as additional layers made the product more prone to lifting or bunching, which resulted in less even application.
The texture was lightweight, thin, and very emollient initially, but it felt more powder-like and drier once it came into contact with my skin (including my fingertip, so I actually found brushes to be more forgiving and gave me a little more time to work). When it goes on well from the beginning, the effect is exactly as described--a wash of color that looks skin-like--but I didn't feel like there was a lot of room to maneuver if it didn't apply evenly initially.
There was a short working window and outside of that, the product was more liking to push and lift away from skin than to blend out better. Most of the time, I didn't have issues applying it right initially, thankfully. This shade lasted well for seven and a half hours before fading visibly.
