THEFACESHOP Plum Cushion Blusher

Hey everyone!

I only got into blushes in the past year, and being the KBeauty lover that I am I just had to try some of their blushes. And now I own this Plum Cushion Blusher from THEFACESHOP. Let’s take a closer look…

Isn’t this packaging just adorable?!? It even comes with a little puff applicator.

I bought this blusher in store, but there was only one left and there were no testers so I did not swatch it. Once I did (at home) I found it way lighter than I expected. It looks more like a highlighter than a blush. It is a beautiful pastel pink shimmer though.

I still tried it as a blush, but it was barely noticeable and really hard to capture on camera. I added it on the apples of my cheeks – you can kind of detect a shimmer.

This is not the product I expected it to be, but I’ll still try to figure out ways to use this blusher.

What do you think?

  • Yeah, I wouldn’t exactly call it a ‘plum’ shade… Still looks pretty on you (I think I can see it!)

    • Thank you Natalie! 😀
      I think I can see it too, lol! I had just done my makeup so my face was matte and I can see a shimmer on my cheek so that has to be it, right? 🙂

  • It’s so pretty as a highlighter though. Unexpected but still really pretty!

  • Very subtle…definitely more of a highlighter…but that packaging though!

  • whenever i see these in store, i really want them but i’ve read so many reviews where they look and review as chalky and sheer so..i stay away.

    • Good idea with this one. The cuteness sure is there, but it’s not the product I expected it to be. I’ll actually try it as an eye shadow to see how it’d look.

  • looks more like a highlighter than a blush! The packaging is ADORBS but this definitely won’t show up on my skin!

  • Definitely not plum, which I would assume would be a dark pink-purple, but this is a pretty highlighter shade.
