REVIEW: MAC Plumful Lustre Lipstick


As someone relatively new to MAC (I onlybought my first item from MAC in June!) my collection has been growing steadily :) I am becoming ever-so-slightly crazily obsessed with their lipstick range, because there is something for every occassion! As you’ve seen in other posts I’ve written, including MAC Russian Red vs Lady Danger, andthe review of my MAC Editorial Orange Lip Palette, I am a huge fan. I thought I would do a review on one of the more ‘everyday’ wearable colours, seeing as the others I’ve posted have been pretty bold colours!

One of my favourite everyday lipsticks from MAC is Plumful. It is a lustre finish, and is described as a “muted medium pink, with a touch of plum”. As a self confessed lover of purple lipsticks, this is a great shade to really ease into the trend, which might be a little scary at first!

I found Plumful after watching EssieButton’s video on her favourite MAC Lipsticks. My sister and I love her videos so much, she is a crack up :) I love so many things that she loves, so I was overjoyed when my sister was able to pick me up this lipstick on one of her trips to Brisbane. (Don’t worry, I gave her moneyz for it!)

I find the colour pay-off of Plumful to be pretty great, especially for a lustre lipstick. The lustre lipsticks of MAC are noted for being not as pigmented and more of a sheer finish. It has the same smooth, vanilla scent as other MAC lipsticks, and has an amazing texture. It is definitely more moisturising than some of my other MAC lipsticks, which are mostly matte and cremesheen finishes.

As I said earlier, this is a great everyday lipstick. It’s perfectly understated, but just that little bit different from your every day basic pink lipstick. I love pairing it with a neutral eye. Even though it’s everyday, I feel like it can create a very polished and pulled-together look. It’s not too bright, and not too sheer. Just perfection :)

Have you tried MAC’s Plumful Lipstick? What is your favourite go-to lipstick that’s just a little bit different from your basic pinky nude?

Stay Minty!

    I only have two MAC lipsticks, this one and Brick o La, and I love them both! I probably wear Plumful a little more than Brick o La but I think Brick o La is definitely my favourite! It’s a brown toned red, and is just gorgeous!
