Yes…I’m officially Plum crazy I got this baby sometime last year and kinda forgot about it for a while..Then a coupl’a months back when I got my new makeup organizers and started organizing, I rediscovered this!! I did feel like hitting myself..especially since I’d like to think of myself as fair towards all my blushes…I try not to be partial and treat them with equal love..So how could I have forgotten about my Breath of Plumm?!??!?!
Ok…enough with the theatrics (applause anyone? Or maybe a standing ovation for my performance?) I do think this is more like one of the many unsung heroes of MAC. We tend to gravitate towards the populars like Desert Rose, Peaches, Fluer Power…or Wow over the bolder shades like Frankly Scarlett or Fever. But then such unique shades get shoved into the background. But not anymore!!! Here I present the very gorgeous… BREATH OF PLUM!

My take on the MAC Breath of Plum Blush:
- Color: This pan of gorgeousness is a dirty plum-pink color. No shimmers so its perfectly suitable for work
- Price: INR 1100 & 980 for the refill
- Quantity: 6g
- Pigmentation & Texture: The blush has a sheertone finish and so is quite sheer and can be built up comfortably as you wish. Like Peaches blush, this also provides a nice plum-toned-pink wash of color to my cheeks.
- Staying Power: This blush stays for about 4-5hrs easily on me.
- Application: I use a normal round blush brush and apply the shade to the sides on my cheeks towards my temples in a ‘C’ shape.

A point to mention about this blush is that on fairer skins this does look more pink. However, on deeper skintones, this would look more on the plummy side. But yes, it does suit any skintone! This is a perfect blush for blush newbies or even for daily wear. I mention it’s perfect for newbies especially since its sheer and has to be layered to be built up. This I feel gives us a lot of flexibility since the chances of making more ‘boo-boos’ is greatly reduced.

Cons of MAC Breath of Plum Blush:
- Nothing at all!
I really wish this shade would get its due. It’s such a gorgeous shade but gets lost amongst the Breezy’s, Sunbasque’s and others… Kinda makes me think about the other blushes which I haven’t even spared a look for.
- Pigmentation: 4/5
- Texture: 5/5
- Staying Power: 4.5/5
- Price vs. Quality: 4.5/5
