MAC Plumful Lipstick | Review and Swatch
MAC Plumful lipstick is a gorgeous plum red in their lustre formula and is one of my favourite shades for Autumn and Winter.
I’ve had my eye on MAC Plumful lipstick for a while. I was hesitant about it at first, only because it’s a darker shade than what I normally wear. Will Plumful suit me? Will I get much use out of it?
Eventually, I added it to my Christmas list and I am now the proud owner of Plumful… and I love it!

This lipstick is honestly gorgeous on you! trust me I don't compliment unless I mean it 😉
I've been wanting this lipstick for a long time as well and just like you justifying $20 (in Canada) for a lipstick is a bit hard! but we shall see I just might take the plunge 🙂
This shade looks really beautiful on you! I really like lustre finishes to, they're so easy and comfortable to wear <3

This is a lovely shade, perfect for those who shy away from plum shades (like moi) it's actually very wearable!
This looks gorgeous on you 🙂 x
I think this shade looks gorgeous on you!
Haha you needn't have pondered so much – it's a beautiful colour on you! I'm the same with my dark lip colours in that I can only wear them with *certain* outfits, so they don't tend to get a lot of use. And I know exactly what you mean by the MAC shopping experience -_- they have perfected the art of intimidatingly hovering over you while you're trying to browse and in my local store, if so much as try to swatch something on the back of your hand, they're all over you asking if you need help!

I LOVE Plumful. Definitely one of my favorite MAC shades, although I do agree that it looks different on everyone. 🙂 It's more pink on me than plum.

What a lovely shade! I think I'll have to add this to my MAC want list! (It's massive!) 🙂
That is just beautiful! 🙂
You look so lovely ! I tried MAC lipsticks last summer for the first time and I just love them so much !
It looks gorgeous on you hun! I've been eying up Plumful myself, but I don't know just yet. 🙂
This looks gorgeous! I've always pondered Plumful but I'm still not too sure as I'm not a fan of the finish and prefer mattes. My current favourite Mac lipsticks are Mehr and Captive, would definitely recommend having a look at those two!x

I love this colour on you! I want it in my collection now. If you haven't tried Girl About Town, you really need to – it's a bright 'out there' pink and it's gorgeous. x
that shade is gorgeous! I actually thought it would be a deeper plum tone but it's actually brighter and looks so lovely on you!

i've seen quite a few people rave about this, such a pretty colour and looks lovely on you xxx
Ooooh, so pretty! x
That looks like such a lovely everyday shade! It definitely does suit you.

This is such a lovely colour on you, it really suits you well!
Plumful has been on my wishlist for months but I could never quite decide either – I hate shopping at the MAC counters too but might have to pluck up the courage and test this one out next time I'm shopping!

It looks great on you, and I'm glad I'm not alone in hating the Metrocentre's MAC counter. It looks so wonderful but damn it's not a pleasant experience at all. The counter at Fenwicks in Newcastle isn't as bad, I think.
It's a really nice shade and really suits you!! I like that it's quite sheer so more like a stain or balm appearance on the lips.

Ohh looks so nice!!
I really wanted to expand my MAC lipstick collection ( I only own 1 lipstick…) but I always forget about them. During this year I've settled myself about trying out more South Korean products, but on my Birthday, I'll try to get this bad boy :3
Take care dear! Have a nice day!*
this shade look so lovely on you!

My friend has this shade and it's just gorgeous…think it has to be my next purchase!
this is such a lovely natural shade. I sometimes find that nude / natural shades can look like concealer on the lips but i really like the look of this one

This looks beautiful on you – I think it suits you perfectly! I love when lipsticks are buildable!

This shade looks lovely on you. So many people own MAC lipsticks but I've never really seen the fuss over them until I saw Plumful. This is definitely my kind of shade and now I'm very tempted to get one haha.
I have this shade and absolutely adore it, I also have 'amorous' which is pretty similar!

Fabulous shade, and compliments your skin tone beautifully!

That lipstick looks so pretty
This looks beautiful on you. I agree to with MAC counters, the service I receive is always terrible, if they even both to serve you! I usually just get ignored. I think I'll add this colour to my wishlist, because like you, I don't own a lipstick that looks similar.

after reading this review I think this is going to be my first MAC lipstick! Sinde I am really pale I don't like to wear lipstick that makes me look even more pale and I think this is a great colour. It is kinda dark but still wearable! Thank you for the review I am really excited to check that lipstick out at a MAC counter 🙂 madamxann.blogspot.de
Beautiful colour, and it really suits you. I totally agree about shopping at MAC though, I hate their shops and counters. It's always so chaotic and as you say, the service is poor. They have lost out on my custom lots of times because of it! xx
This looks so pretty on you! I've never swatched this in store, but I definitely need to. It looks so pretty. xx

This shade has been on my list for months now too because of some beauty blogger or another – I can't keep up! But everytime I get to a MAC counter I'm just overwhelmed by the colours on display and having to pick all the berry shaded ones up to look at the name at the bottom. So I always leave empty handed…
I have been tempted to order it online but there is something so satisfactory about getting it in the black MAC paper bag!
Ahh, that shade looks lovely on you! I'm yet to delve into Mac lipsticks since they're ridiculously priced in Australia, but I may look into this one 🙂 It looks like it'd be a great shade for the cooler months.
I adore Plumful! It's the only MAC lipstick I own at the moment but I absolutely love it!

looks like a really nice shade to have for daytime!
such a lovely color!
This is gorgeous! I've been lusting after it for ages as well but I'm waiting to use up more MAC products so that I can Back to MAC it. 🙂

It looks beautiful on you, it really suits your colors! I always wanted Plumful, perhaps it's the only MAC lipstick that catched my eyes in a while. I need to buy it soon, I think it's the perfect shade for someone like me who doesn't like to wear vampy lip shades, but loves a bit of color.

This colour is gorgeous. It really reminds me of captive by Mac which I already have x
wow love it! <3
you look amazing! so glad i found your blog :3
Plumful looks gorgeous on you! I have been eyeing up this shade so may have to finally make the purchase! Maybe next month though – I need to save my pennies! I only own one Mac lipstick, See Sheer, which is also a lustre. It's so beautiful! xo
Oh this is such a lovely shade. I really like it on you too. I think I'd go for something a little pinker, to match my weirdly pale skin!

Beautiful color! <3
Everyone's gotta love a MAC lipstick! I just got two and absolutely love them… my fav is definitely the Please Me.
This shade is so pretty! Think it's now on my mac lipstick wishlist 🙂

This shade is so pretty on you!
it looks much more tamed on than on a swatch. I really love it.
This shade looks great on you. I completely agree with you about the experience in The Metro Centre though, I find Fenwicks in Newcastle isn't much better though. I can be stood pondering shades for a good few minutes and it'll take ages for an assistant to come over and see if I need help. It's frustrating and most of the time if I want something from MAC, I tend to order it from Debenhams online – after reading multiple reviews and looking at a ridiculous amount of swatches.
This shade looks absolutely beautiful on you! I really need to start collecting MAC lipsticks!
