I review a lot of blushes, because finding the right one has been such an ongoing struggle for me. One of the main reasons I joined MUA all those years ago was to get some reliable advice for sorting through what were then hundreds of blushes (now thousands!). I stumbled on Lancome Aplum a couple of weeks ago. I had a bonus sample of it that I'd never used because it seemed way too deep a color for me, but kept because I like Lancome blushes. After a trip where I got bitten by some mosquitos on my cheek I looked through my drawer for the blush that would blend in with the bites the best, and decided on Aplum. Surprise, surprise, despite the burning and swelling of the bites, the blush looked great! I should have known--what could be a better sample to match your blush to than the irritation of your own skin? Aplum looks pretty intense, but it is not--it disperses very easily to create a sheer veil of a matte plum that for me is so flattering and pretty, an incredibly natural, brightening flush of color. I probably would never have gotten around to trying it, certainly not days in a row, but circumstances forced me. I guess I should be glad I'm such a mosquito magnet?

This is a beautiful blush and I really like it because it just looks so pretty on. About me NW20, NARS Monte Blanc, YSL BR20, blonde hair, and green eyes. This shade goes really well with my complection which is very cool toned. This goes on so smooth and builds up with no problems. It almost looks seamless with my skin. It just looks natural and not over done. This lasted from morning till night without a touchup. So, I got a good 8 hours and I touch my cheeks a lot. Aplum goes on really smooth and I like to use my Yachiyo to apply this. It doesn't kick up powder and a little goes a long way but it doesn't go on heavy where I have to blend it like crazy. I would most definitely but more blushes from this line. It hasn't broken me out either and I like how it's matte but goes on sheer, natural, and not flat. Recommended!

I love this. I got it and "Meil Glace" in a tiny duo. I know it's prob not the best, but I use it for eye-shadow as well. It never irritates my skin as so many other shadows and blushes do. It goes on smoothly with zero grit. The finish is very light and no sparkle (of course). I find it's a very sophisticated and subtle look which I use, maybe once a wk for the office / day. I adore Lancome anything and will def re-purchase. Altho, I've had this for about 3.5 years and still have a decent amount of product left. Pricey I know, but worth every cent!

Aplum is a soft, dusky plummy mauve without any shimmer. This is a subtle yet sophisticated shade that looks incredibly natural on my medium tan skin and especially lovely in the winter months. It's oil-free, long-wearing, and comes in beautiful black mirrored compact.

I got this as a sample from lancome-usa.com and thought it would break me out since Lancome is not known for using natural ingredients and you know, all that hype. However, I have never broke out from it and it even has less comedogenic ingredients than Tarte clay blush - my all time favorite. Check this out ladies: cosdna.comPros: natural, subtle, blends well, lasts pretty decent amount of timeCons: nothing really!

This came in a GWP and I've been using it every day for two weeks. I prefer it to my two other plums--Clinique's Plum Gorgeous and Smoldering Plum--because it's a little lighter and therefore brighter. It's also buildable, so I can't make a mistake. Aplum is a mauve with enough brown to be suitable for warm skintones. My only complaint is I find it hard to open the compact. I really have to dig my nails in and worry about my manicure. Whether this compact style is the same for the regular size or just for the GWP sample size, I don't know.

I have been using this blush in Aplum for many years. When you find something that works, I guess it is safe to stick with it! I love the light and smooth look of this, particularly when worn over the pressed powder. It feels like you are not wearing any makeup at all. This is a great shade ofr everday wear. I suppose if you were going out at night, you can just brush on a few more strokes to add additional color.

I got this blush in Aplum as part off GWP recently. It was a choice between this blush and an eyeshadow quad. Since i have more than enough eyeshadows (including 3 quad Lancome GWP) I chose the blush, since I only have 3 blushes from NARS that I use regularly. I love this blush. I think the color is absolutely perfect for me, it is so subtle it looks like a natural cheek color rather than looking like I'm wearing blush. I would definitely purchase this again when I run out of it.

This is a beautiful plum-rose color. I have very dark brown hair and eyes and light skin. I think this blush is beautiful on fair skin. I used to wear very sheer light pinks, but I like this best when wearing darker lipsticks. It's light but buildable.

Finding a blush for me is very difficult for the following reasons:- makes me look hot- makes it look like I have rosacea or redness on my cheeks, which is really annoying when I spend time covering up any redness with foundation/powder- doesn't last long enough- must be glitter-free, otherwise I look sparkly, greasy, and my pores are emphasizedI don't have any of those issues with this cool toned mauve/plum/pink blush. The color payoff is good, and it is pretty long lasting. Very smooth and finely milled product, no glitter/shimmer whatsoever. Shows up true to color. After using this, I was able to realize a real difference between a quality blush, such as this one, and a cheaper one. No redness issues with this either - I find that a lot of blushes that are plum, pink, or peach are red-based, especially from MAC, so that when I apply them, my cheeks look red or like they are burning. Also, those were too sheer, so it added a sheer wash of red, but still didn't look like blush. Anyways, this is somewhat pricey, but it lasts a long time (over a year I'd say) so it's worth it for what you get. I have repurchased this about 4 times, and have recently tried out the shade 'Rose Fresque' and am liking that as well. Rose Fresque is lighter/brighter, not as cool toned, and more pink than Aplum. It is also glitter/sparkle free.
