Lips - Mac Plumful

2013 is the year of colour (for me) and I am overcoming the lack of colour in my life by adding some to my lipstick collection.

I have a big love affair with Mac and some of my favorite nude lipsticks are from there, so it was the perfect choice to go and pick out so colour.

After staring at the sea of lipsticks before me and trying my hardest to steer clear of the natural tones I picked and bought 'Plumful'. Mac describes Plumful as a: Blossoming rose-plum (Lustre) and the plum colour works perfectly with my pale (lack of sun) complexion.

One of the first things I noticed (apart from the lovely colour) was the pleasant vanilla scent which fades after being applied. The first coat goes on sheer, smoothly and even, it adds colour to my lips without being too heavy and is perfect for colour while going about daily activities. By adding more coats, the colour builds up to a perfect dark colour for night time wear.

Plumful has become a fast and firm favorite of mine and I am wearing it most days, I will defiantly be repurchasing this lipstick.

See the images below for the lipstick and some swatches.

  2. The color looks so elegant! Mac has some of the best lipsticks. I used to not be so big on colors, but the past year I've been all bright and pastels, not giving it up. xx
