REVIEW & SWATCH | MAC Lipstick in Plumful

Hi again! Today I have a review on my first ever MAC purchase from a while back (posted here). It’s the lipstick in Plumful.

I have briefly reviewed this product in the haul post, but now that I’ve used it for a while I thought I’d share the full review with you all. First, I have to admit I never think of buying a MAC lipstick before. Just because it’s way up my usual price range. But after watching this video from essiebutton, I HAVE TO at least have one of it. It just look so damn beautiful on her!

At first I was hesitant about which one to buy (Estee featured 5 of her top MAC lipstick and I liked 3 of them, all of which was Lustre finishes), so I decided I’d just go to the counter and try it on myself as lipsticks can look a lot different from person to person. I didn’t think I tried “Syrup” just because I thought it would look too pale on me, but now that I have the Plumful — which Estee referred as the brighter version of Syrup — I think I’d like to try Syrup!

Enough with the background of why I got this particular lipstick from this particular brand, let’s get going with the review!

MAC describe Plumful as “Blossoming Rose-Plum” which I honestly not too sure how it should look like. Plumful has a lustre finish, which means it’s a bit on the sheer-er side. And by sheer it means it isn’t full on opaque but it still packed enough color. You can wear it lightly dabbed (which will give you just a tint of color) or you can swipe it all over your lips to get medium coverage. It’s also glossy — which I love. Because of the sheer-ness (is that a word?), this is a very easy color to wear considering it’s actually quite bold. The glossiness and the sheerness of the lipstick does make it easier to transfer and thus fade, but I don’t mind to reapply as I feel like reapplying give enough moisture back to my lips. Oh and I have to say that when wearing this lipstick, I mostly don’t feel the need to wear lip balm underneath which is a plus! So far, I’m loving this lustre formulation and See Sheer/Capricious/Syrup is already up on my wishlist!

What is your favorite sheer lipstick? Do tell me in the comment section below!

Hope you love the review and swatch, and I’ll see you in my next post!
