This revolutionary blush combines all the best features of baked, powder, and cream formulas, releasing perfect color and a texture that lays on cheeks like a second skin. Easily blendable and buildable without being powdery, this unique blush leaves an unbelievably polished finish. The warm shade, Apricot Brandy (PANTONE #17-1540), was inspired by the Color of the Year, Tangerine Tango, and will light up the apples of your cheeks with a spirited glow.
Sephora has partnered with Pantone for a collection featuring the “Color of the Year”: Tangerine Tango. This review is for the Prisma Chrome Blush in Apricot Brandy.
This blush comes in a white, plastic, square compact with a full-sized mirror on the inside of the snap-shut lid.
Apricot Brandy is a golden tangerine color. The color is quite subtle and translucent on the first few layers–it’s more shimmer than orange color. You have to layer the product quite a lot to get a strong orange color.
The formula is similar to MAC’s In Extra Dimension eye shadows. It’s a dry cream that applies like a powder.
I would use Apricot Brandy as a highlighter more often than I would a blush because it is very shimmery and isn’t very pigmented. The shimmers are extremely refined and would pair perfectly with an orange blush.
Ease of Use: 8.5/10
Expect to apply multiple layers if you want to use this as a blush. Otherwise, you can apply just a couple of layers to use it as a highlighter.
For $16.00 you get 0.12 ounces (3.5 grams) of product. MAC’s In Extra Dimension Highlighters cost $29.00 and contain 9 grams of product. You pay more for Sephora’s blush per ounce than MAC’s product.
