My first lipstick from MAC was not from the very well known “Myth/Angel/Hue” selection. It was actually, during my first visit to MAC, mother dearest who picked it up for me while my attention was caught by the pinks and corals. It wasn’t exactly what I was searching for back then, but finally decided to go with it as I knew that this wasn’t going to be my last visit to a MAC store (I assure you, it was not!).
Behold! A lipstick that is hardly mentioned in Youtube videos and beauty posts: Plumful.
**Before I get started, you have to know that my mum adores these shades of lipsticks (even though she hardly ever wears them..). She actually loved Rebel by MAC the minute she saw it.
You can see that I used quite a bit of it. I mean, it was my very first MAC lippy afterall. Huge event in my life! Haha
It’s a plum color.
If you didn’t get that, please read it’s name again (sarcastic much?) I’m sure you all know the MAC black bullet packaging. No need to get into details on that…
It has a lustre finish which I like. This is one of my favorites finishes from MAC’s lipsticks.
Before starting a powerful and deep relationship with this particular brand, I was used to sheer lipsticks like Chanel’s which were found in my mother’s makeup bag (mum, If you’re reading this, I swear I’m not the one who stole your sheer shimmery blue toned Chanel lipgloss when I was 4). So it was hard for me to adapt to pigmented lip products. HASHTAG story of my life…
Back to the point… As Plumful is part of the Lustre category, it can be a bit sheer unless you build it up. You end up with a beautiful, lovely plum color and a glossy finish (no dryness). I love it. Yes, it has been in my makeup drawer for several years and I still enjoy using it until today.
I believe that it would look lovely on all skin tones. Definitely a lipstick that deserves more attention and that is worth checking out next time you drop by a MAC counter.
Talk to you soon 🙂
What’s your favorite winter lipstick?
