Here’s a quick review of Plumful, a Lustre lipstick from MAC. This is one of my favorite MAC lipsticks, and predictably so! I’m very much into plum and grape shades, especially if they are sheer. One of my first lipstick loves was NARS’ Sheer Lipstick in Vendanges, which I featured on Day 2 of Lipstick Week, in which I picked out my Most-Loved Lipsticks. Another similar color is Revlon’s Lip Butter in Sugar Plum.
There is a very juicy feel to these lipsticks that I think is similar to MAC’s Plumful.
On the right is one pass of Plumful, and on the left are several passes. Since it’s a “lustre” lipstick, the color comes off very sheer even though it looks fairly dark in the tube.
I’m wearing it here! While it is technically buildable, its opacity isn’t really very solid and the finish is somewhat shiny. Since it is sheer and a little glossy, it is a bit more forgiving on the lips than other finishes like creamsheen (the worst, in my opinion) or satin, or even matte by MAC.
Plumful is a midtone pinky plum. It pulls a little pink on some people, but I find it “true to pan” and swatch on me. It’s very, very easy to wear and goes with most colors. As you can see here, I can wear it with a pink blush and a green eye, no problem. Plumful is part of MAC’s permanent line.
