Today I received the only two items I purchased from the Dolce & Gabbana Spring collection.
Petal eyeshadow quad and Apricot blush
Below is a photo (in natural light without flash) comparing Apricot with some of the other D&G shades. Although I haven't given this a try yet, if it's anything like the other D&G blushes, I think it should be OK despite the "orangey-ness." I have found these blushes to be somewhat sheer and easily toned down by applying with a light hand. They have a really fine texture, and unlike a lot of other blushes the brush that comes with them is actually usable!
Top (left to right): Provocative 40, Apricot 27, Rose 30
Bottom: Caramel 25 and Nude 10
*Update 3/23/2013* Below are swatches of Apricot and a photo of it applied on the cheeks. I hope this is helpful!
Above and below is Apricot worn on the cheeks. It is a warm peachy terracotta shade that has an effect similar to that of a bronzer. It is somewhat sheer, so those with fair complexions should be able to wear it if applied with a light hand, or you can layer it as I did here to achieve stronger color.
