MAC Plumful | Review and Swatch
Before buying MAC Plumful, I went on google to look for swatches and review. I’ve seen it on a few people and I absolutely love how it looks on them.
When I got to the MAC counter, I applied it on my lips and I instantly liked it but wondered if it was too dark for me. I was wearing black at the time and my leather biker jacket, so it went with the look that I was going for on that particular day.
Anyway, I pondered about it for months! I know, it’s only lipstick but at £15 a pop, I found it hard to part with money as I want to make sure that MAC purchase to be justified! Especially at MAC counters, where the shopping experience is just horrendous, or at least the one at The Metro Centre is! There’s the LOUD music under bright hot lights and bad customer service. Sometimes I like to go in for something I’ve already got my heart set on (something I’ve seen on a beauty blog!) so all I want to do is pay for it, but I get so annoyed that I’ll just walk away after 5 seconds!
Anyway! Eventually, I asked my sister to buy me this lipstick for Christmas. Plumful was finally going to be mine!
As I had made such a fuss of it, I had it in my head that this was all I wanted, my perfect lipstick! I usually go for fuchsia pinks and corals, so I didn’t have anything like Plumful and it’s such a pretty shade for Autumn and Winter.
It’s from the lustre formula range and it is described as a plummy pink. The formula is creamy, sheer with a slight glossy sheen to it.
I find that Plumful looks different on everyone. On me, against my yellow-toned asian skin, it comes out with a lovely maroon/berry red, as opposed to pink, and it does a great job by adds a healthy natural-looking colour back in to my lips.
I think it suits me more when I am wearing dark coloured clothes, things like that make a difference to a look.
I really like the lustre formulas because they’re so wearable and moisturising. They’re not as pigmented as the others but it has got good staying power! I absolutely love the lustre finish lipsticks from MAC, it’s moisturising, extremely wearable for day time, and the colours are buildable, so they’re pretty versatile!
Has anyone got this shade? Which MAC lipstick shall I lust after next?
