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.

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