REVIEW: MAC Lustre Finish Lipstick in Plumful

Today, I'm going to be reviewing one of my most worn lipsticks, the MAC Lustre Finish Lipstick in Plumful. I've been rocking this shade all winter and now I feel like I can really give a detailed review of this product. 

WHAT IT CLAIMS: Color plus texture for the lips. Stands out on the runway. Simmers on the street. What made MAC famous. Blossoming rose-plum (lustre). 

WHAT I THINK ABOUT IT: This has got to be without a doubt my most worn lipstick this winter. I love the color, the shade and everything else about it! 

Plumful is a pinky-plummy shade which pulls more plum on my lips. It's not an "in your face" color. It's definitely subtle but not "my lips but better". It looks absolutely stunning with a grey or black smokey eye. It has a bit of blue in it, but nothing that will look off on my NC30-37 skin tone. Before purchasing this lipstick, I went online to look at swatches and reviews. Although the majority of the reviews were positive, Plumful looked a bit different in every swatch I came across. I guess the color that it gives on your lips really depends on your particular skin tone. 

Plumful is a creamy, sheer and buildable lipstick. It's not very longlasting, but that's to be expected from a lustre finish. I find that this lipstick is slightly moisturizing on my lips.

PRICE AND AMOUNT: This is priced at USD $16 and you get 3g or 0.1 US oz of product. 

AVAILABILITY: You can purchase this directly from It's part of the permanent range.

OVERALL VIEW: I love this lipstick! It's looks absolutely divine on me and I have really worn this a lot this past year, so much so that I'm actually running out of this! I'll definitely pick up a new one once this one runs out.
