Sephora has put in a lot of thought into the packaging of the design of this entire range, and the Sephora + Pantone Prisma Chrome blush in Apricot Brandy is no exception.  The packaging is a classy white case with a mirror that's handy for quick touch-ups.  The blush is baked into a swirl pattern and is a burnt orange colour - an effect that is perhaps helped along by the frosty, shimmery finish.

This is a very pigmented blush that is best applied with the lightest hand.  It has a velvety creamy feel to it, and I find it supereasy to apply with just my fingers.  Blend it out with a brush to get a neater application.  This also one "glowy" blush with a liberal amount of shimmer in the blush, and I am no shimmer fan, but to be fair, the particles somehow stay put and don't tend to wander about on my face.

The burnished orange colour and the frosty finish makes it a great pick for those who want a bronzed effect to the skin and don't mind the shimmer.  The staying power is just awesome - stays on me the whole day - even those shimmer particles that I really wish weren't there - they stay on until I take off my makeup.  Apart from the shimmer, there's really nothing much I can find to grumble about with this blush.  The quantity seems a tad too small for the price, though - just to give you an idea how small this blush is, here's a pic on my hand, and I have really small hands :P

Dear Sephora..how about taking out some of that shimmer, putting in more of the blush, and giving us more for the money?  Still, if you don't mind some shimmer, you would love this blush - and if you are like me, you can keep this blush for the cloudy days when there is no sun to turn you into a disco ball :D
