Glossier Storm is a very warm-toned, medium-dark plum with a matte finish. It is a permanent blush that retails for $18.00 and contains 0.33 oz.
Glossier Storm Cloud Paint ($18.00 for 0.33 oz.) is a medium-dark, reddish plum with subtle, warm undertones and a natural finish. It had sheer, buildable coverage--up to about medium, where it still retained the translucency of a cheek stain but had more visible color and appeared more true-to-hue applied--that sat well on bare skin as well as over a foundation. The consistency was very lightweight and a little airy, but it felt like a thinner gel overall, which helped it spread well across my skin without becoming patchy.
When worn in one layer, it ended up looking like a soft pink rather than a plum, so there's some versatility to it but some may find having to apply multiple layers to get closer to that plummy hue to be more work than preferred. For me, it was the finish that was the most standout feature about the product: it looked glowing but wasn't actually wet or tacky. It wore well for eight and a half hours on me before it started to look slightly faded and more washed out, but it did not turn patchy or migrate.
