My skintone (N5) is pretty chameleon-esque when it comes to lipsticks. I can put on almost any shade, warm or cool and pull it off...except this one. It washes me out. :o(
Within a few weeks of purchasing, this has become a much relied upon staple in my purse cosmetics bag...I adore it that much. Applies with such a lovely creamy finish as a deep pink with plummy undertones and is beautifully flattering yet never overwhelming on my cool, very pale skin. I find it to be very professional yet a little sexy at the same time and always feel just a little more confidently feminine when wearing. What a beautiful winner MAC came up with in this shade!
I've been going through my lipsticks trying to decide what to keep and what to swap. Well, I just finished swatching Capricious, so when I pulled Plumful out next, I thought "I have a feeling this one's going to go!". WRONG!
This is SO lovely. Capricious is also a pinky plum colour, but Plumful has even more pink. Plumful is cooler than Capricious, but I (NC30, dark brown hair and eyes) can absolutely pull it off. So, while Capricious is a warmer (than Plumful) pinky plum, I'd say that Plumful is a cooler plummy pink.
I can't say enough good things about the colour of this lipstick, and I'm so glad that I found it again... I'm going to have to go back and get Capricious and see if I still love it as much!
I would absolutely buy this again!
I do like the color, it's very pleasant. But I find it more of a pinkish hue rather then plum (Though there is a slight trace of it) And from the picture on the website I was expect a more plummy color (Then again when does it ever look like the website) however, nice color and I would consider buying it again.
If this was a smidge deeper, it would be perfect for my NC44 Latina tone. As is, it's a lovely plummy-pink for daytime. It has a brightening effect and is creamy and is definitely on the "violetty" as opposed to "brownish" side like some plums. As folks here say, it skews pink on the lips.
The reason I'd repurchase is that I love it as a base for certain lipglasses. It's fabulous with Jampacked (an LE now sold out, sadly) for a purpley look. It's lovely with rich and ripe, for a new complex color that isn't as pink and isn't as purple--warmer.
A very nice MAC shade.
I was looking for a darker fall lipcolor, and saw this color in an email from MAC for fall looks. I liked it and immediately went here to check the reviews of the color. I purchased this online without seeing the color, and I am glad that I did. This plum color has enough pink in it to look great on my cool complexion. Most colors considered plum have too much orange/brown to look natural on me. This color is amazing, it's a great darker color on my face. This will be a definite staple in my makeup bag for years to come.
Very wearable and versatile color! Love it as a alternative to my usual bright red.
I love this lipstick! I'm into dark color lipsticks lately and this is the product that I use the most. It glides onto my lip smoothly, and it leaves a shiny finish. I apply one coat for everyday use to make my lip have a natural red/berry color, or two coats for a sexy/ night time look.
On my dark pink pigmented lips, this shade is a medium plummy wine shade. It is NOT overly shimmery or frosty - to me it's actually more of a satin than a lustre. When my lips are in good shape, this is really a MLBB shade that helps disguise the fine lines in my lips; some of the time it seems more dramatic, like the plum and wine tones are coming out more. It is slightly drying, so I have to stress that this and any other lipstick is really best used on lips in good shape. I love the scent of MAC lipsticks (reminds me of chocolate cake donuts).
Plummy-pink lustre formula. Very pretty and on my lips it is a couple of shades darker. It looks more plum-purple in the tube but on my lips it becomes more pink. For a lustre formula I'm really pleased with it as for some reason it has more staying power than other lustre colours that I've tried. This is possibly because it's a darker colour than I've tried before. It seems to stain my lips so thats a real plus for this product. Would definitely buy again because it's so complimentary against my skintone! (NW25)
