The Black Box - MAC Lustre Lipstick "Plumful" | review

I did it. I popped my MAC cherry with a lustre lipstick and boy am I excited! I honestly never thought that I'd purchase a MAC lipstick or any MAC product but this was a semi impulse buy and it's gotten me addicted. 

I swatched a bunch of lipsticks and there were only two that I really liked - "Speak Louder" and "Plumful" and I picked up the latter as the shade is much more wearable and a good pick for a first time MAC lipstick consumer. 

The packaging it au typical and quite iconic. It does resemble a tampon but I'm willing to look past that, ha ha. "Plumful" is one of the permanent lipsticks at MAC and is a lustre which means it's sheer but build-able and quite moisturising. Here in Australia, MAC is pretty hefty but it's reasonable  for a high-end makeup product. The lipstick cost $36 and can be found at Myers where there's a MAC counter.

"Plumful"is a wearable plum with pink undertones which allows the colour to mellow down on the lips but gives your lips a gorgeous berry look. The colour goes hand in hand with the formula as well. It's creamy and applies smoothly on the lips and because of it being so sheer, it's build-able which is perfect for such a shade. 

A good dupe for MAC'S "Plumful" is Rimmel London's "Vintage Pink", if you're not wanting to spend that $36 on a lipstick. 

"Plumful" is a perfect everyday lipstick and I adore it!
