After publishing my post on M.A.C.'s "Plumful" the other day, Lauren (of Peachy Curves) suggested that Revlon's Kissable Balm Stain "Honey" may be worth a comparison.
I choked back tears; did I have a dupe for the lovely Plumful in my (disgustingly large) collection already???
Furthermore, as I dug through my bags to find Honey (I've got the bad habit of leaving 10+ lipsticks in my backpack and purse from previous outings #girlproblems) I came across my Revlon Lip Butter "Berry Smoothie"... SON OF A--- did I have TWO possible dupes for Plumful???
The mystery had to be solved.
All of these lipsticks, more or less, are of the balm-formula nature; because of this they are somewhat sheer and thus I wasn't fooled by how different they may look side-by-side.
I knew that, with the pigmentation of my lips, these definitely had the potential to color shift and be dupes.
(L-R): Berry Smoothie, Plumful, Honey
I will admit, these are all pretty similar in color on my lips; Berry Smoothie is a bit more pink and sheer than Plumful, Honey is a bit more opaque than Plumful and much more of a toffee colored nude, etc.
Overall I'm very happy to report that these are indeed not dupes for the beautiful Plumful and each provides my lips with a different color and finish.
However, like said, based on your skin coloring and lip pigmentation you may find different results!!
On really fair skinned girls I've seen Honey look much more berry-like on the lips and Berry Smoothie look much more fuchsia than it does on my lips.
What do you think?
Do you have a Plumful dupe?
