I have a weakness for LORAC. They have a Pro line for Fall and there are five blushes in it and I’m going to show you two of them! Plum Passion (they get extra points for the name) and Coral Crush.
Plum Passion Cheek Stain ($20) is a really pretty purple shade with a classy subtle shimmer to it. I don’t have many plum colored blushes but this is the most wearable one. This lasted all day on me and also made me realize that plum isn’t just for special occasions or very specific makeup looks. This color really emphasizes my cheek bones in a special way like deeper blushes usually do if placed correctly on the cheeks. I get a little slap happy with blush but if you keep this on your “apples” it looks like a cheek lift trust me.
Coral Crush Cheek Stain ($20) is going to remind a few of you of a very famous blush that shall remain nameless. I say that because I like this one better because I can wear it! Since I have a deeper skin tone I have to be careful and use corals that are deep enough and pigmented enough to show up on me and also not look too clown bright. The right coral warms up my skin and looks natural. This is one of those. There is a fun shimmer in the shade but it is subtle and there are NO GLITTERY BITS which I like.
Here’s the scoop on this blush collection from loraccosmetics.com:
I am completely without sun today. It’s depressing but that means all my swatches turned out bad since the clouds are making it look like dusk. Here are a few shots of the blushes swatched but I highly recommend checking the whole collection of blushes out at Sephora or Ulta. Swatching these shades will let you know what you must add to your makeup stash!

I’m going to show you the Pro Cream Eyeliner from the Pro Fall Collection very soon. And the Pro Palette which makes my makeup loving heart race faster every time I look at it!
