Review: MAC Lustre Lipstick - Plumful (with Swatches)

Hey guys!

You all have permission to kill me...I know i've not been posting in a long time and I could sit here and list you all the different excuses and explanation for why this is but it's simply not excusable. I will blog, I will. 
So to kick start my millionth return into the blogging routine I thought I would do it with a review, believe it or not up until this point I had never ever tried the infamous MAC Lipsticks and I wish I knew why that is. After watching several "top MAC lipstick" videos on Youtube and seeing the wonderful Essie Button rave about this particular colour (she is my enabler) I thought I may as well just give in and purchase it! I couldn't be happier with my decision. 

As far as packaging and visual appeal goes MAC is a winner with their bullet like lipsticks that can be recognised world wide. I also noticed something about the smell of this lipstick that I was not expecting, it smells very much like the old lipsticks your mum may have worn when you were much younger however this smells slightly more luxurious than that. 

With this being a Lustre it means that its more on the sheer side of things, however if you're anything like me you won't mind building the colour up to the desired shade. Another factor that many of you will find desirable is the fact that it feels extremely light on the lips and for that reason the Lustres are probably the perfect choice for everyday wear. 

I can't imagine this lipstick lasting a very long time as it's already fairly sheer and so will rub off sooner than perhaps their Matte coverage. 

Please note that the colour in person is darker than shown on these images and more purple toned, for whatever reason my camera decided to not sure that but these images are still an accurate representation. 

After I took these pictures I had a frenzy thinking that I had an exact dupe of this from the drugstore, to my delight (as I didn't want to have spent £15 for nothing) I hadn't as this is a much more raspberry colour than my other lipsticks. 

You can also build the colour up more than this if you wished for a more opaque and deeper raspberry/plum colour, bare in mind that your lip colour also has an effect on how lipsticks show up. 

Till' next time,
