Your skin tone/coloring: pale, cool
Favorite plum lipstick? Is MAC Craving “plum”? If so, that’s my favourite!
Favorite coral blush? Coral blushes don’t really suit me (that cool, pink tone to my skin) but I can wear Benefit Coralista (though I rarely do since I’ve so many other blushes I prefer).
Shimmer or matte blush? Shimmer all the way, baby (not glitter but shimmer, like the Becca blushes that were discontinued or some of MAC’s Mineralize blushes that just glow)

Craving was the first one which crossed my mind, but it’s one of those shades that have plum in the description, but on me they look more pink, not a hint of plum. It’s hard sometimes with these questions to decide if I go with the color in the bullet or on my lips, since on me most lipsticks look totally different once applied. ๐Ÿ˜…

YOUR SKIN TONE/COLORING: Under my name; cherry cola hair with a violet tint; hazel/green eyes.

FAVORITE PLUM LIPSTICK? UD Vice Lipstick in Sheer Rapture (DC); ANH Matte Lipstick in Dead Roses; Bobbi Brown

FAVORITE CORAL BLUSH? Estee Lauder Rebellious Rose (LE); Milani Rose Powder Blush in Coral Cove

SHIMMER OR MATTE BLUSH? I like and use both, but if I have to choose one, shimmer.

Oh man, I totally forgot about my ABH Dead Roses! I love that one for when I want a lighter plum lip. It’s a beauty!

Your skin tone/coloring: Light olive
Favorite plum lipstick? Revlon Rum Raisin, but I rarely wear plum lipstick.
Favorite coral blush? Clinique Ginger Pop
Shimmer or matte blush? Matte-ish. My favorite blushes are Clinique cheek pops. I just ordered a Fig Pop back-up because all of the Cheek pops are half price. I hope they aren’t discontinuing them. Pink Honey is my favorite, but it are hard to find.

Your skin tone/coloring: Under my name (blue-green eyes, dark hair)

Favorite plum lipstick? Um, too many? MAC Heaux, PML Executive Realness for cool plums. MAC Retro, Guerlain Air Kiss, and UD Crisis and Tampered for warmer ones. Don’t even get me started on the deep ones, lol.

Favorite coral blush? MAC Spring Flock, Nars Fetishised and Flower Beauty Melon. And I still love Nars Orgasm, too!

Shimmer or matte blush? Neither! I prefer satin finish or very lightly shimmery blushes.

Your skin tone/coloring: MAC light, NC 20
Favorite plum lipstick? MAC Syrup
Favorite coral blush? NARS Orgasm
Shimmer or matte blush? Shimmer. Not a fan of matte blushes. I donโ€™t really like glittery blush . More like satin

Favorite plum lipstick? Sephora Lipstories in “Golden Gate” and NYX Pin-Up Pout in “Flashy”

Favorite coral blush? Ooh corals are my favorite so this is going to be hard. Probably Colourpop x Animal Crossing Pressed Powder Blush in “Flower Tender” and the Lottie London Ombre Blush in “Haze”

Shimmer or matte blush? Definitely shimmery blush. As much glow as possible for me please!

Your skin tone/colouring: Porcelain, with pink undertones

Favorite plum lipstick? I think the closest plum lipstick I have is Maybelline’s Mauve for Me lipstick. Plum lipstick generally turns pink on me.

Favorite coral blush? The Balm’s Hot Mama or Clinique’s Melon Pop.

Shimmer or matte blush? Definitely matte blush!

Your skin tone/coloring: Light medium with warm yellow undertone, dark brown hair and eyes.

Favorite plum lipstick? MAC Rebel, although if MAC Plumful came in Satin or Matte formula it would definitely top it (I don’t like the Lustre or Creamsheen formulas).

Favorite coral blush? MAC Springsheen.

Shimmer or matte blush? The answer is always matte, no matter the question. ๐Ÿ˜…

Your skin tone/coloring: above with freckles, green/gray/blue eyes, warm brown hair.

Favorite plum lipstick? PMGL Luxetrance in Beautiful Creature.

Favorite coral blush? ND Mini Bloom Highlighting Blush.

Shimmer or matte blush? Satin or glowy blushes, always.

Skin tone/coloring: Light neutral
Favorite plum lipstick:
I actually went and checked my stash because I don’t think i have a plum lipstick, and I do not.
Favorite coral blush:
Melt Honey Thief or Milani Luminoso
Shimmer or matte blush:
On the whole, shimmer.

Very pale with a lot of pink (rosacea)
1 – Not a plum fan anymore, but PMG had that first release of lip products in the slim black packaging? I think mine is Venom and it’s as plum as I’ll go

2 – Melt Cosmetics highlighter in Genesis. It’s more coral than Orgasm, but still has the gorgeous gold sheen. Still looking for a perfect properly coral blush actually!

3 – Depends. I have more mattes than shimmers, but I think that’s because there are more mattes available for purchase.

Your skin tone/coloring: Under my name, grey-green eyes, dark brown hair.
Favorite plum lipstick? MAC Craving and Plumful, Maybelling Plum for Me, Bobbie Brown Plum (I think it is just called “Plum” but I can’t check, it turned bad and I had to toss it).
Favorite coral blush? NARS Orgasm and Benefit Coralista
Shimmer or matte blush? If I have to chose between the two, it is shimmer, I do prefer satin though.
