I’m Plum Out of Indecent Proposals

bareMinerals The Indecent Proposal Blush ($22.00 for 0.21 oz.) is described simply as a “dusty plum.” It is a darkened plum with subtle red undertones and a very fine dusting of gold micro-shimmer (just barely noticeable when blended out). MAC Stratus is a more intense version–also has a stronger sheen. MAC Notable is more subdued.

Last year, bareMinerals released a pressed version of blushes–as part of the Ready range–after the success of their eyeshadows. I like their blushes, but I’m not as in love with the blush formula as I am with the eyeshadow one. I find the texture of the Ready blushes to be a little stiffer, less dense (lacks that buttery consistency of the eyeshadows). The texture is a smidgen powdery, though finely-milled and soft to the touch. When I wore this, I ended up pushing it to sixteen hours of wear (we took a trip down to Monterey!), and it lasted well for a full ten and looked noticeably faded after sixteen. It’s advertised as “up to eight hours,” so it certainly lives up to that claim and then some.

The texture could be a bit more blendable and yield more pigmentation without having to build it up so much.

    I really like this, and I don’t think I have anything quite like it. I don’t *need* another blush…but man, it’s tempting.

  2. spacegeek

    Really love that combination of blush, lipstick and eyes on you! Very flattering!! :-)

  3. Brenda

    Christine, another comparison question (I have some LE products from a few years ago that I’m terrified to run out of).

    How would this compare to MAC Prim & Proper, from the Liberty of London collection? I don’t recall seeing a swatch in the gallery to take a look..

  4. Brenda

    Sorry Christine, I found the Prim & Proper swatch!! Please disregard my previous comment! Your thoughts on the comparison would be much appreciated – this blush looks a bit redder?

  5. Kayvid

    What foundation and powder do you have on? You look gorgeous!

  6. This color looks like it’d be a perfect mauvey-nude for me

  7. Pamela

    Looks like MAC Plum du Bois to my eyes.

  8. This looks gorgeous, but I do wish it looked more like it did in the pan. Once swatched/worn, those red tones really do come out quite a bit more

  9. Just have to say that that combination of products is just stunning on you. You look absolutely beautiful.

    This is really pretty, and I think it would work really well with my coloring, but I’m also looking forward to the new NARS blush for Spring, so I’ll have to wait on this.

  11. Cat G

    You look so pretty!! That’s just perfect makeup (all of it!) if I’ve ever seen it!

  12. Cait

    I really like this. I kinda wish I would have bought it for fall.

  13. Audrey

    Okay you didn’t list whats on your face! What is it? Your skin looks amazing.

  14. Miss J

    I really wish I wouldn’t have looked at this review, LOL! Man, this one is so tempting me, but I plan on getting the new blush from NARS on Tuesday (Come on, is anyone surprised by that? Didn’t think so, haha.), and I really want to try the newish LORAC powder cheek stains.
