M.A.C. "Plumful": Swatches + Review!!


I don't think I've been this excited about a lipstick since... erm... I have no comparison (worst. writer. EVER #mybad).

Maybe it was the long awaited anticipation of the purchase (I was a good girl and held off for months before caving [currently accepting virtual back pats]).
Maybe it was the thousands of swatches of this lipstick I put onto my hand over said months (historically accurate reenactment here).  
MAYBE IT'S JUST BECAUSE THIS LIPSTICK IS BEAUTIFUL IN EVERY WAY SHAPE AND FORM.

Can't fault the facts, folks.



Plumful is a Lustre finish lipstick in M.A.C.'s permanent collection (aka you will NEVER have to shed a tear when your bullet runs out... not even for parting with your cash because it is THAT worth it).

It's the most gorgeous (and dare I venture to say universally flattering?) shade of sheer pinky-plum that'll give you about three hours of wear. While that number isn't very impressive, it's kind of what I expect from M.A.C. lipsticks (I've tried many different finishes and none last more than 3-4 hours on me). 
Also, because this is a Lustre finish, I find that even though the wear time is quite short, it fades extremely evenly so you won't have to worry about the dreaded lip-liner-no-lipstick effect that many lipsticks are notorious for leaving (I'm looking at you Matte finishes).



Boom.
*fist pound explosions galore*
I can't imagine anyone would regret purchasing this lipstick.

Have you tried M.A.C.'s Plumful?
Love it? Hate it (don't make me cry)?
What's your favorite lipstick at the moment?
Do share!

  1. I love this! I've been seeing it everywhere and it's definitely giving me cravings :) It looks gorgeous on you. It looks kind of similar to Revlon Balm Stain in Honey too :) might be worth a comparison x

  3. I went to M.A.C with my mum and she bought this! I love the colour but I'm just not a massive fan of the lustre finishes! A gorgeous colour though and I am tempted by it!

    1. Oh no, I'm sorry you don't like the Lustre finishes D: This one is much less lustre-y than others I've swatched if that sways you at all... definitely do try it out for yourself since it is SO lovely :)

  7. I actually really like the tone of it just because it looks so so crazy natural on you, I don't know whether it is your skin tone that compliments it but it just suits you really well! ♥

    1. Haha it's definitely not "natural" but I get what you're saying!! I think that's what I love about it; it morphs to suit so many different people's skin colorings! :)

  8. I thought it would be so much darker .. it almost looks pink vs. plumb.

    1. Yeah it would be if it were a super opaque finish but the lustre finishes are all pretty sheer :)

  13. This is absolutely gorgeous on you! I wish I could you see your full face with it though. How come you didn't get it in the Year of the Snake packaging? It's the same price but with a gorgeous design.

  15. I love your new intro pic of Mr. G! Very cute...and your new profile pic is lovely too! Is this color too blue-based for me?

    1. Thanks Mutti!! I have actually seen this on very fair skinned girls and it looks GORGEOUS on them as well... I'd definitely go check it out; I feel like it's sheer enough so that it ends up shifting to suit your own skin tone. Go to a M.A.C. counter and try it on!! :)

  16. Hi was researching this color and came across ur blog.. Do you wear any lip liner with it? Just curious... I did end up buy the color but the makeup girl sold me a lip liner and gloss and now I'm unsure of the color :(

    ReplyDelete

    1. Oh wow, I'm glad your research somehow brought you here!! And no, I don't wear lipliner with it (or with anything, to be honest!); I think it would be too sheer of a lipstick for a lipliner? That would probably alter Plumful and might be why you're not so happy with the color now... try it on its own, it's truly lovely that way :)
