A Splash of Color – Sensuous Plum

Plum is not really one of my favorite makeup colors to wear, as it is a little too warm and dark for my complexion. (I prefer more purple shades for eyes and slightly lighter shades for lips.) But I do have a few plum-colored sweaters and scarves, which I enjoy wearing in winter.

For me, plum is a beautiful color to look at. I love its richness and elegance as well as its understated femininity.

Hey PJ:

I really missed your splash of colors collection, I wanted to do a knock-off version of your splash of color but i can never get the pictures to look as nice as yours so I just gave up …Anyway, it’s awesome that it’s back…At first I though you will do a lilac part three since I’ve seen some new items you got…But a new one is always nice…

I like plummy red on lip color quite a bit but when it comes to eye shadow…it makes my eyes look swollen…well, it’s swollen to start with…

Hi Belita,

Indeed, I took this photo…a couple of hours before this post went up. :)

Thank you very much for your kind words!! :)

Hi Mina,

I am glad you enjoyed this post!

Hmmm…Lilting Lilac Part Three is certainly part of the plan, but I think I will do a couple of posts featuring other colors before I go back to lilac…:)

Some plum shades can also make my eyes look a little bruised. When I do wear them, I have to keep them very close to my lashline.

Thank you for posting your comment again! :)

After learning purplish shades bring out the green in hazel eyes, I’ve been a lover of plum shaded beauty products! Fabulous post and many new plum products for me to try – yea!! xo
