SWATCHES: M.A.C's Plum Du Bois Powder Blush

The Plum Du Bois Powder Blush is from the Cult of Cherry collection. I got this from Roseanne's giveaway. I don't follow M.A.C's collections, somehow (And thank goodness. My parents will probably despair if I do.).

This blusher resembles the colour of rust, interlaced with shimmers. It's not a shade that I would think of getting so I'm really glad that I won this! Where blushers are concerned, I'm all about reds, pinks and peaches. I haven't really ventured into the realm of darker and deeper colours like plums and browns.

On my cheeks, the blusher is more of a plum than a brown (Click here to check out 15 Minute Beauty Fanatic's swatches! She managed to capture the shimmers!). It is actually very close to the natural colour of my cheeks when I wake up from a very deep sleep (No kidding! Okay, this runs a little darker but it's close!). So I'm incredibly happy to find a blusher that is able to replicate that natural shade of mine (Just because natural is always the BEST!)!

The shimmers aren't obvious when applied and unlike Stereo Rose, which I thought emphasized my pores, this didn't. I haven't really got that many M.A.C's blushers and neither do I really use those that I own so I'm not sure if the emphasizing-the-pores thing is only applicable to the Mineralize Skinfinishes (I read from some blog that that seems to be the case.) or it happens to certain M.A.C's blushers.

But anyway, whatever it is, this is going to be a staple from now on! :D
