Top 5 Plum Lipsticks


Plum Lipsticks. Is there any other kind? Since my love affair with Revlon Black Cherry began in January, I have been a plum lip convert. They make any makeup look polished, from professional to party. Here are my Top 5 Favourite Plum Lipsticks that I turn to all the time. Please excuse my well-loved L’Oreal Color Riche, she had an accident on the way back from her birthplace Paris, France with nail polish remover :(



Revlon Super Lustrous Shine in Plum Velour RRP $21.95

This is one of my only lipsticks by Revlon in the Super Lustrous Shine range, and I really love it! It’s a semi-opaque, super shiny medium berry shade, that is quite a buildable colour. It’s not quite as hydrating as the Lip Butters by Revlon, but still quite moisturising for maintaining the lip colour throughout the day.

Revlon Super Lustrous in Black Cherry RRP $21.95

My one true love in lipstick form. This product is literally two lipsticks in one. You can wear it lightly blotted as a stain, or in it’s full glory as a dark, burgundy. If you do choose to wear it full fang, I would definitely recommend a lip liner in a similar colour. I use Rimmel London Lasting Finish 1000 Kisses in Cherry Kiss (RRP $8.50). And be careful! This lipstick can be a little slippery when you apply two coats.

Rimmel London Moisture Renew Lipstick in Sloane’s Plum* - RRP $13.95

This is the newest in my collection and I am in love! It’s a more muted plum shade, with amazing hydration and SPF20, perfect for us in Australia. It lasts really well throughout the day and it also has an awesome scent, I can’t really describe it. It smells a little perfumed. Definitely trot on down to your nearest Rimmel London stockist, swatch and sniff!

Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in Sugar PlumRRP $21.95

Definitely the sheerest of the plum colours I own. If you are new to plums, or hesitant to trying it out, buy this product immediately! It’s a great everyday lip colour that isn’t too dark and has the added bonus of super moisturising properties.

L’Oreal Color Riche Intense Lipcolor in Intense Plum - RRP $21.95

I believe this was the berry first (Bwahaha) plum lipstick I got in my collection, and it is still one of the best. It’s super intense like the name suggests, and has the best lasting power out of all my lipsticks. It is also the most matte, but don’t get me wrong, this isn’t a matte lipstick. It’s just a regular lipstick, while all the others have high moisturising properties.

What is your favourite plum lip colour? Have you tried any from my Top 5?

    I have the Black Cherry and the Sugar Plum. I adore plums! One of my favorites is the L’Oreal Infallible Lipstick in Persistent Plum. It’s a long wearing formula, matte, but isn’t drying. And it LASTS! I hope you can find it to test out! Great picks!
