MAC Sheer Plum Lipstick

MAC Sheer Plum Lipstick ($14.50 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “rouged chocolate” with a lustre finish.  It’s a reddened brown with semi-opaque color and a subtly glossy finish. For a lustre, it’s particularly pigmented, though it’s not completely opaque.  It glides on easily and leaves behind ample amount of color with a good amount of shine.  I actually found this lustre to be a bit moisturizing, as compared to other lustres that do nothing for me in the moisturization department.

my thoughts on the formula: MAC Lipsticks are vanilla-scented but taste-free. I typically get four hours of wear, but some of the lighter lustre and glaze finishes tend to disappear by hour three. Amplified cremes and amplified finishes, however, tend to go beyond four. I find the formula comfortable to wear and not drying (but not moisturizing–a couple of the matte shades can be drying).

P.S. — I have no idea why the tube of lipstick looks like that; it didn’t look like it had anything on it when I swatched it originally.

Sheer Plum

B+
This is a shade that makes it easier to wear brown, because the red in it brightens and softens the brown.
