There is nothing 'plum' about this lipstick. Not on me at least. The name is misleading, it is pretty much sheer brown with slight berry tone. Looks exactly the same as "Polished up". I tried them both, and could not see any difference on my lips. Great texture, and as with all MAC lustres, nice shine, smell, packaging. Pretty if you are looking for a sheer brown. By the way I have dark brown hair/eyes/brows, pale cool complexion. I did not find it similar to Clinique Black Honey. Black Honey is more red toned and deeper (looks terrible on me), this one is somewhat neutral and pretty.

Nice texture that gives a bit of shine and doesn't dry my lips. The SA recommended this when I told her I wanted something similar to Clinique's Black Honey. Unfortunantly, I eventually found this is way too dark for my NC25 Asian skintone.

Why is this called sheer plum? It is NOT plum at all. It is a warm reddish brown. I do not see any plummish colours or anything remotely plum. Anyway, that being said, it is sheer-ish. The texture is ok, glides on smoothly with satisfactory staying power (seems to last longer on my upper lips than lower lips though, which does not happen with me with other lipsticks). Anyway, no offensive smell or taste IMO. The lipstick itself is fine, the colour is nothing special - I have Revlon lipsticks that look like this. Won't repurchase in this colour.

This is a sheer red-brown lustre lipstick. I love the colour, it doesn't look overwhelming on my asian skin (C4). I do wish it had more staying power though. The colour is excellent so I would def. purchase again.

I don't see any 'plum' on me, just like other ladies said below. This is truly a nice neutral reddy-brown on my Asian NC20 though. Love the scent from MAC lipsticks and the Lustres texture is just fabulous!

Universal shade! Anybody can wear it and it is non-drying. Goes with any outfit as well- formal or rugged! I am a LLL and my friends range from a PPP to a GGG and DDD they all love it.

I was in the MAC store yesterday and I asked the SA if she had any lipsticks that looked like Restrained Rust. Based on the color name alone, I would never have agreed, but when I tried it on, it was the shade I was looking for.
This is a good everyday lipstick for me -- a leave in my desk at work lipstick that's a good choice when I don't know what lipstick to wear.
I gotta knock a lipstick off for that ever present gross MAC lipstick scent and another one off for lack of staying power. I'll probably buy this one again since it's so neutral.

This is quite a pretty shade, but I'm not sure the words "sheer" or even "plum" really apply to it! On my lips, this appears to be more of a muted brown-berry shade. It's very pretty, but I would have preferred something less dark, perhaps, and longer lasting. That said, it's a creamy formula and keeps my lips supple for as long as I have it on. The colour, to me, says "winter" more than anything else, so maybe I'll try this as it gets cooler outside and my makeup picks begin to change.

This was always one of my favorite MAC colors, though I wasn't crazy about the formula. Now that it's a Lustre, same thing: color, great; formula, so-so. As with most of the other Lustres, the glossiness is gone within just a few minutes. But this one leaves behind a nice red-brown stain. I guess I can live with that, but this might be the last tube of this shade that I will buy.

Wonderful browny-plum stain. Great for when you want just a hint of color without full-coverage or gloss.
Age: 44-55 Skin: Sensitive, Fair Hair: Brunette Eyes: Blue
Great color, great price, sheer moist texture, kinda gross scent and zero staying power, Was fun to try, won't buy again.

As the name suggests, it's a sheer plum colour with a lot of brown to it. I liked this one a lot better than Clinique's Black Honey (a similar shade) because it didn't turn fuschia on me. However, it doesn't last long, and I quickly got tired of it.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
A nice sheer plum tone to where on my lips for a little color. It's high quality and a nice color, but I'll keep on looking. I'm too fickle to really stick w/ one color for more than a tube.
Age: Unknown Skin: Oily Hair: Brown Eyes: Hazel
Beautiful but doesn't last. Not worth the price.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Acne-prone, Fair, Warm Hair: Red, Wavy, Medium Eyes: Brown
A beautiful, tad bit darker than your natural lips, warm color. Brownish red w/a slight bit of plum showing up. (At least on me it does.) It seems to be one shade lighter than Clinique's Black Lily, a little more brown than red. Gorgeous & highly recommended for a red head! It also meshes well with a red top or dress!
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination Hair: Other Eyes: Brown
This is nothing to brag about. Just a sheer slightly glossy brown.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Acne-prone Hair: Black Eyes: Hazel
This color is so pretty. What I wanted Clinique Black Honey to look like on me (that turned fuschia). It's not really plum, but a berry with a hint of brown on me. It is also a bit creamier and not as drying as MAC's other lipsticks.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Acne-prone Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
I love this lipstick! Finally finally finally, a sheer lipstick that looks like me naturally only much better. People can't tell I'm wearing it, they think I just look that way. *grin* I'm a medium-toned asian chick with dark black hair, if that helps at all... This reminds me, as someone else said, of a slightly less purple and slightly more red-brown Clinique's Almost lipstick in Black Honey - but this one is actually moisturizing! Yippeee!

Another boring brown colour is an accurate description. This is just a sheer brown red. Nothing special.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Very Oily Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
this color seems a little boring to me but many people look wonderful in it. maybe it's just me.
