  6. Sarah

    Coloring: light neutral
    Plum lip color: Maybelline Plum Perfect, or Deepest Cherry with Midnight Plum layered over it
    Plum blush: one from Prescriptives years ago…Plum Rose? Lovely, sheer pinky-plum.
    Plum eyeshadow: I avoid…tend to look like I got punched in the eye; I need more blue-based around my eyes, not red-based.

  7. Your skin tone/coloring: NC15
    Favorite plum lip color? MAC Craving (for a natural day), Revlon Black Cherry (for those days when I want a really dark lip)
    Favorite plum blush? MAC Breezy, NARS Sin
    Favorite plum eyeshadow? MAC Plum Dressing, MAC Satin Taupe (which isn’t exactly plum, but it does have some purple undertones)

  8. Your skin tone/coloring: NC20-NC25. I used to be NC35-NC40, actually, and I have no idea how I suddenly shifted to a much lighter shade in a span of 1-2 months (I don’t use any whitening products whatsoever). What confuses me the most is how I don’t look unnaturally dark when I use NC35-NC40, and how I don’t look unnaturally white either when I use NC20-NC25. Go figure.. 😐

    Favorite plum lip color?
    • MAC Rebel + NARS Damned Velvet Matte Lip Pencil (they’re almost the same color actually, except with different finishes)
    • MAC Heaux (surprisingly, this does not resemble Rebel at all when it’s on my lips, as opposed to when they’re on Christine’s)
    • NARS Never Say Never Velvet Matte Lip Pencil
    • MAC Flat Out Fabulous

    Favorite plum blush?
    • NARS Sin or Tarte Blushing Bride (I find these two very similar)
    • Tarte Flushed
    • MAC Love Thing

    Favorite plum eyeshadow?
    I don’t really wear eyeshadow regularly because I always lack sleep and I sometimes tend to scratch my eyes as an involuntary habit. :(

    …as you can see, the lines between plum and berry are quite blurred to me. I even thought of adding MAC RiRi Boy for lipstick and NARS Mata Hari, for blush,, actually, but they might seem more purple-lavender-pink than purple-plum to others… 😆

    I haven’t found a plum blush that works for me yet. They usually end up looking ashy on me.
    It’s been a while since I bought it, but I always loved Clinique’s eyeshadow duo in Beach Plum. I might have to go pick a new one up now that I remember how pretty it was!

    Favorite plum blush? plum blushes make me look bruised, I haven’t found a good one
    Favorite plum eyeshadow? giorgio armani eyes to kill in lust red (mix of red, violet, black)

  25. xamyx

    Skintone/Coloring: Fairly light, very neutral; dark-featured.

    Lips: Kat von D Homegirl, among others. I don’t do “true” plums, but stay closer to the burgundy & wine ranges, which don’t pull warmer on me.

    Blush: NARS Oasis; again, I have to be very careful with this one, or it pulls ruddy.

    Eyeshadow: NARS Ondine; for some reason, I can do plum eye products. I also like browns with plum tones.

  26. AngieButterfly

    I’m light to light-medium (depends on the brand) with golden undertones.

    Mac’s lipstick in Plumful is perfect for me. I love that it’s buildable.

    TheBalm’s blush in Cabana Boy is stunning. I wear it all the time.

    Not sure on eyeshadow. I don’t wear plums that often on the eyes.

  27. Your skin tone/coloring: Light/medium with yellow undertones (NARS Fiji, Illamasqua LLF 140)
    Favorite plum lip color? Mac Plumful! Kind of a cheat since it appears more pink on me. But it’s lovely. Brick-o-la actually turns out pretty plummy on me actually. I think it’s because my lips are fairly pink-toned naturally.
    Favorite plum blush? Do I have to choose one?! Hm. NARS Sin.
    Favorite plum eyeshadow? Elysees from the Sigma Paris Palette!

  28. Kellie

    ◾Your skin tone/coloring: Brown with yellow undertones
    ◾Favorite plum lip color? Nyx Round Lipstick in Medusa (looking for a lip liner to replace it, though)
    ◾Favorite plum blush? Illamasqua’s Thrust (looks crazy in pan, turns plum-like on skin)
    ◾Favorite plum eyeshadow? I’m still looking!

  29. Emmm

    Your skin tone/coloring: Pale with pink/cool undertones
    Favorite plum lip color? Either Kat Von D in Homegirl or Clinique Black Honey
    Favorite plum blush? Nars Sin
    Favorite plum eyeshadow? UD Freakshow, MAC Fig.1, Nocturnelle – Are those plums or purples? I am getting confused lol

  30. Your skin tone/coloring: Fair, cool-toned
    Favorite plum lip color? MAC Plumful (I think I have 4 tubes of it!)
    Favorite plum blush? MAC Plum Foolery or Conjure Up
    Favorite plum eyeshadow? Hmmm – if the purple side of Nars Habanera counts as “plum” then that would be my choice. Failing that, it’d be either UD Psychedelic Sister or Bordello.

  31. kastehelmi

    Your skin tone/coloring: Around NC42/ L’Oreal Honey Beige
    Favorite plum lip color?: So many! Plum Rose by Bobbi Brown, Bobbi Brown Desert Plum, MAC Rebel, MAC Private Party, Maybelline Midnight Plum (more wine/aubergine…)
    Favorite plum blush?: Don’t wear blush very much, but most of my blushes are coral or rose. I would love to try NARS Sin though.
    Favorite plum eyeshadow? I don’t have one, but Bobbi Brown Velvet Plum Long-Wear Cream Shadow has been on my radar for awhile now….

  32. Emme

    Your skin tone/coloring: light medium, warm undertone leaning olive
    Favorite plum lip color? Probably MAC Mehr, it’s not hugely plumy, but I have dived into the actual dark plum shades for lips yes. Getting there :-)
    Favorite plum blush? Tarte blushing bride or Illamasqua Beg <–not sure if that's an actual plum, maybe more like a redish brown ??
    Favorite plum eyeshadow? the bottom left shadow from the Smashbox The Masquerade Eye Palette

  33. Skin tone/coloring: Light/Medium with redness so i tend to go for more yellow-toned foundation.

    Favorite plum lip color? MAC’s Rebel
    Favorite plum blush? The closest thing I have to plum blush is NARS’ Goulue!
    Favorite plum eyeshadow? so many! Everything in the Laura Mercier artist palette, Sketch, Star Violet, Satin Taupe, Blackberry, I could go on and on!

  37. Astrogherkin

    For me, “plum” denotes a blue-purple colour which doesn’t flatter my warm skin tone at all, so I suppose I don’t wear plum shades. But I do wear more warm purples like maroons and burgundies, as well as deep reds – the warm red-purples can also be called plum I suppose, since that’s the colour of many varieties of the fruit.

    Your skin tone/coloring: NC40-42
    Favorite plum lip color? – Rimmel 09 is my favourite colour at the moment for winter; it is a rich deep blue-toned pink-red. It reminds me of the intense blood-like colour of winter berries. I also like Catrice’s Play the Plum.
    Favorite plum blush? – purplish blushes don’t tend to look good on my warm skin, but I still like NARS’s Sin and Sleek’s Pomegranate
    Favorite plum eyeshadow? – I don’t tend to wear that much eyeshadow, especially not intense colours, only neutrals.
