5 Seductive Plum-Hued Beauty Products to Try

One color I definitely associate with autumn is plum, so building on some of the recent lists, I thought I’d do one featuring some pretty plums today!

  1. theBalm Cabana Boy — a soft, muted plum with a luminous golden sheen for cheeks
  2. Zoya Mason — a warm, shimmery plum with a metallic finish for nails
  3. MAC Craving — a beautiful pinky-plum with a satiny finish for lips
  4. Chanel Merveille — a semi-opaque neutral plum with lots of shimmer for lips
  5. Bobbi Brown Naked Plum — a semi-sheer plum with cool undertones and pink and gold sparkle for lips

What are your top three favorite plum beauty products?

Bobbi Brown Golden Bronze & Sunlight Gold Long-Wear Cream Shadow Sticks

Bobbi Brown Golden Bronze Long-Wear Cream Shadow Stick ($28.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “deep bronze sugar.” It’s a warm-toned, caramel bronze with pale bronze shimmer. It has a soft, frosted finish–not quite metallic but not just a frost. The consistency was very creamy and emollient–but in a way that didn’t feel too wet or take forever to set when applied to the lid, just in a way that made it apply smoothly and with rich, full color coverage. It sets fairly quickly, so you will want to make sure you work one eye at a time. MAC Brownluxe #4 is darker. Edward Bess Cosmic Bliss #4 is similar. Giorgio Armani #10 #4 is warmer. Le Metier de Beaute Autumn Rust is slightly darker. Bobbi Brown Bronze is similar. Urban Decay Deeper is similar. Chanel Promesse #3 is warmer. bareMinerals Ritzy is darker. See comparison swatches.

Bobbi Brown Summer Pink & Sunlit Nude Sheer Color Cheek Tints

Bobbi Brown Summer Pink Sheer Color Cheek Tint ($26.00 for 0.21 oz.) is described as a “sheer bright pink.” It’s a slightly cool-toned, medium pink. Applied to my medium skin tone, it gives just a hint of pink–very natural and subtle. I suspect this will be harder to see on deeper skin tones and then potentially bolder on fairer complexions. Chanel Affinite is slightly darker. Edward Bed of Roses is cooler-toned and a powder product. MAC Weekend Getaway is cooler-toned. Illamasqua Seduce is more plum. See comparison swatches.

Bobbi Brown Nude Beach Sheer Color Cheek Tint

Bobbi Brown Nude Beach Sheer Color Cheek Tint ($26.00 for 0.21 oz.) is described as a “golden pink bronze.” It’s a rosy bronze with a champagne shimmer. , which looks almost plummy. Because it’s just a wash of color, all of the shades that are similar are much more pigmented and are also powder blushes. Bobbi Brown Nude Beach (a powder) is very similar but matte. NARS Lovejoy is more plum. bareMinerals The Indecent Proposal is also more plum. See comparison swatches.
