Plum Blush--Swatches

A few of my ladies on Twitter were wondering what plum blushes I have and have been successful with. So here are my plum blushes...swatched and also blended in to my skin for reference.

Left to right:
e.l.f. blush in Coy, e.l.f. Mineral blush in Plum, Maybelline blush in Plushed Plum, and GlamRock Cosmetics blush in Paid

e.lf. blush in Coy:
This blush, for only $1, is crazy pigmented, soft, and easy to blend onto the cheeks. A little goes a long way but it's easy to build up the color as well. It's among my favorites in this group.

e.l.f. Mineral blush in Plum:
More of a pink toned plum, this $5 e.l.f Mineral blush is beautiful. Again, a favorite of mine; a bit more pigmented off the bat than Coy.

Maybelline blush in Plushed Plum
This one is the less pigmented version of Coy. If you have fair skin, then this would work great for you, but as you can tell, this doesn't even show up on me when blended. Lovely color, just not for me.

GlamRock Cosmetics blush in Paid
More of a brown toned plum...more of a wine...but gorgeous all the same. This one is insanely pigmented though...which is good. I tend to go really lightly with it and build up the color so I don't over do it.

Do any of you have some plum blush recommendations?

The only plum I have is the MAC Breath of Plum blush. Have you tried that one?
