5 Playful Plum Blushes

Plum blush can be used in a variety ways, from subtle to bold, so it can really bring drama to the face and create a look that really emphasizes the cheeks if one desires.  If you have a cooler complexion, you may look for a plum with a subtle pink or berry tone, while warmer complexions may look for a plum with a subtle brown undertone.  Or throw away the rules and go for the one that strikes your fancy :)

  1. Bobbi Brown Plum — rich pink plum
  2. Burberry Cameo — softened brown-plum
  3. theBalm Cabana Boy — shimmered plum-berry
  4. NARS Oasis — dirty plum with gold shimmer
  5. MAC Plum Foolery — dirty plum with a shimmer-sheen

What’s your favorite plum blush?

    No Benefit Dallas?? I absolutely love that blush!

  4. Ya know, Christine, you’re not helping my current insatiable appetite for plum blushes. 😀

    I just bought Milani Temptation, and I love NARS Sin. Nix’ie (unfortunately now a discontinued line), used to make a great plum called Sincere. I live and breathe for that blush. Plum Foolery is on my to-buy list, and it looks like Cabana Boy is going on my list as well!

    I <3 On a Mission by Mac!!

  6. I would have to say Nars Dolce Vita, its described as a dusty rose but it could be considered plummy I think :-)

    I love theBalm’s Cabana Boy! I have really fair skin and it can be hard to find one that doesn’t look muddy on me.

    Oasis is more like a ” Champagne rosé blush ” I think, Plum attraction from Chanel is a deep plum blush, I often wear it during winter time. light and dirty plum is Brit Witt from M.A.C, it’s a really gorgeous cream blush.

  10. I realized a couple weeks ago that I don’t really own any plum blushes. I used to own NARS Outlaw (now discontinued) but I didn’t really like it and swapped it away.

    Cargo Mendocino, another plum berry blush, is my favourite. I also really like Nars Sin. For reference purposes, I have light to medium olive skin.
