Very disappointed since Plum Dressing is a Veluxe Pearl - the pigmentation is very mediocre and it's hard to get decent colour pay-off. Online swatches led me to believe it was a medium purple with berry undertones. It's not, instead it's a shimmery flat red and incredibly similar to Cranberry, although Cranberry is MUCH more pigmented. In the photo I've uploaded, it took me 3 heavy-handed swipes to get the intensity you can see, as opposed to one swipe for Cranberry. I definitely will not repurchase. I hate wasting products so I just use Plum Dressing in the outer v with Cranberry all over the lids.

Not nearly pigmented enough! I wanted to pick this up as a replacement for Hepcat which was recently discontinued (WHY?!?!?). This is the closest color Mac has that would work as a substitute. However the color payoff is not there for me. It is a similar warm purple on the pinky fuchsia side, but not a full duo chrome chrome like Hepcat. Definitely not mpressed. I actually found a better, more pigmented rlacement in my shimmer88 palette.

I was at my Mac store to buy an new eyeshadow. I brought an eyeshadow in Plum Dressing. I brought it home and try it out. It gave me a sheer of colour but I had to layer it on to see the colour. But the Plum Dressing made my brown eyes pop out. But when I swatch it in the store it show up darker on my hand but on the eyeshadow brush it gives you a sheer colour. I won't be buying this eyeshadow again.

Not as pigmented as I would come to expect from MAC. Would not repurchase.

This shade is reddy pink on me... not plum at all. Additionally I find the texture to be more like a satin. It doesn't apply smoothly nor does it blend like other veluxe pearls. I love purples and own most of the ones MAC makes but this one is a dud. I definitely would NOT recommend. Check out my blog for pics:

This is a lovely plummy purple. The pigmentation is decent, although not as good as some of my other MAC shadows. I love using this color in the crease with Swish on my lids. It also looks great as a lid color with Beauty Marked in the crease for a nighttime look. I've never had a problem with fading. The color is more of a wash of color rather than a bright pop of color, so it is a nice way to add some zest to my work-friendly makeup routine.

I bought this online without swatching it (I don't like going to counters to buy things). When i got this it was a pretty big dissapointment, i really have to layer it on to get the color to show up. I also wouldn't reccomend it for people with fair skin, it showed up more red than purple on me so it wasn't flattering at all. I would not reccomend this color, not very good quality (poor pigmentation). I've had purple eyeshadows from drugstore brands that show up much better than this!

I love this color. I've most recently used it with stars n rocket and a black eyeshadow. With the three I've gotten a really pretty purple smokey eye.
the color goes on wonderfully, blends wonderfully, and I haven't had any issues with it not lasting.
so glad to have this in my stash.
