Happy Top Ten Tuesday! Today I’m bringing you my picks for the best berry and plum makeup. I actually have a lot of products that fall into this category. To me, berries and plums are the perfect mix of dramatic and romantic makeup colors. I really love these shades for blushes.
Best Berry and Plum Makeup
All products are, of course, cruelty free. Some are vegan. This post contains a mix of press samples and products purchased by me.
1. Darling Girl Duochrome Eyeshadow in Mistress
This is an eyeshadow (it was limited edition, but Darling Girl brought it back briefly for Pink Friday). It’s a blackberry / plum type shade with green shift. I swatched it on bare skin with a damp brush using e.l.f. studio makeup mist & set. (Nightwatch is a similar shade, not limited edition). You can check out my tutorial featuring this color. During Darling Girl’s Pink Friday sale I picked up a few jars of this shade.
2. Darling Girl Baby Blush in Bubble Tea
This is such a pretty berry! It’s a pinky purple shade without shimmer that melts onto the cheeks or lips. It’s infused with argan oil and orange peel butter. It’s a very natural looking shade.
3. Darling Girl Sparkle-matte-ic Lipstick in Berried Treasure
This is a berry pink with blue and violet holo sparkle matte lipstick that dries down. It’s not smudge proof or kiss proof, but it is smudge and transfer resistant.
4. Darling Girl Sparkle-matte-ic Lipstick in Galactic Love Story
This is a grapey purple with aqua and blue holo sparkle. (This may have been discontinued, I’m not sure)
6. Femme Fatale Blush in Creeping Coffin
This is a lovely soft purple blush with a golden sheen. See more Femme Fatale. (v)
7. Too Faced Love Flush Blush in Your Love is King
I love this soft plum rose blush.
8. NARS Blush in Sin
This is a stunning berry with gold shimmer.
9. Urban Decay Afterglow Blush in Rapture
This is a mauve / berry type shade with shimmer. When I swatched Sin and Rapture side by side I noticed that they appear pretty similar on my skintone.
10. Sugarpill Chromalust Loose Eyeshadow in Magentric
This is a deep magenta berry with turquoise blue sparkle. I swatched it on bare skin with a damp brush using e.l.f. studio makeup mist & set. (v)
