It’s been a busy few weeks and makeup purchases have been few and far in between, so I’m still in the middle of testing some of them. Here’s an ode to an old blush love, though. Stashed & Forgotten is what I call some old-ish makeup items that I haven’t gotten around to featuring here. Today’s feature is the MAC Sheertone Shimmer Blush in Plum Foolery
I only have 3 MAC blushes from their regular range, and I think that this shade Plum Foolery is one of the best. I keep forgetting about it because I stash it in a MAC Large double palette, but I think it’s a great plum blush. Similar to NARS’ Sin, which is one of my favorite NARS shades, Plum Foolery is shot through with some fine, gold shimmer. It adds an overall glowy quality to the blush, so I usually forgo the highlighter.
This has more true plum tones than Sin, though, leaning more berry than muted with more pink and warmth than its NARS sister. It is well-pigmented and buildable, too:
Rest of the makeup: MUJI UV Make Up Base, K-Palette Real Lasting Eyebrow 24H (02), The Body Shop Brow & Liner Kit (02), NARS Eyeshadow Duo (Kauai), Happy Skin Eye Am Here To Stay Liquid Liner, Pixy Volumizing Waterproof Mascara*, MUJI Refillable Lipstick (A53)
I think the glowiness and the warmth of the pink tones make it a great blush all year-round, actually. I’m kind of surprised that I don’t reach for it more often.
