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)

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’m on the hunt for a perfect plum lipstick right now, so I’m looking over everyone’s recommendations!
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 lip color: Tom Ford Black Orchid, drugstore Milani Black Cherry.
Favorite plum blush: Nars Sangria is as close as I get to plum.

Favorite plum lip color? mac new york apple ( this looks plum-red on me)
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)

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.

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.

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!

◾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 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.

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….

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

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!

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.
