MAC - Plum Foolery

MAC - Plum Foolery

For today's post I thought I would share my all time favourite blush. Now, choosing a favourite blush was quite a task for me as I have so many, and I think they are probably the prettiest and most lovely make-up items to have. They can complete a look, or completely change it and I use blush everyday without fail - and 9 times out of 10 it is 'Plum Foolery' by MAC. 






In fact, this was my very first MAC purchase at a whopping €18.50 at the duty free in Malaga Airport! I floated around the Mac stand for quite some time, swatching an armful of blushes and finally decided on this beauty; 'Plum Foolery.' It is described on the website as faintly plum and at the time this was like no other blush I owned - I was more of a subtle pink/soft peach kinda gal.


Plum Foolery is a gorgeous deep pink/purple almost mauvey colour and has a teenie tiny amount of gold shimmer throughout, this is barely noticeable for those who do not favour a shimmering blush - I feel this just  gives it a natural and dewy finish without looking like a disco ball on your cheeks. As with most Mac blushes, the pigmentation is splendid, and as this is from the sheer tone blush line it is subtle enough for everyday where yet also build-able for a more dramatic look. On first appearance I assumed this would belong in my makeup bag during only the winter months - but actually, I adore this all year around! 

Have you tried this shade? What is your favourite mac blush, or for that matter any blush? (please don't tell me I am the only blush addict around here!!)

  1. Confession coming up..I'm a bit scared of blusher and don't really know what to do with it. As a result, I sometimes feel like even though I have nice coverage foundation/powder wise, I can still look a bit washed out and well, sort of, missing something. Maybe I should stop being such a scaredy cat and just get a nice one. Could you post pics of how this colour looks on do you think? xx
