I’ve adored MAC Plumful (RRP $36.00) for years after I saw Essiebutton rave about it on her YouTube channel. I’ve done a full review here, but the TL;DR is it’s a lustre finish, and it’s a ‘rose plum’ shade. Of course, we all know MAC lipsticks have a vanilla scent, and the lustre finish is a smooth slightly sheer lip finish.
The first budget option is the Max Factor Lipfinity Long Lasting Lipstick in 60 Evermore Lush (RRP $23.95). I did a review on this shade not too long ago here. You can see that it’s slightly warmer than the original shade. It also doesn’t feel quite as comfortable on the lips as the MAC lipstick, but it’s better than average. The scent is fruity which is a nice change from the vanilla scent of MAC. This lipstick also tends to last a little longer than the original MAC lipstick, but only by an hour or two.
The second budget option is the Rimmel London The Only 1 Lipstick in It’s A Keeper (RRP $15.95) You can see a review of this shade and others here. This shade is slightly more pink than the original but it’s a minimal difference. It actually feels MORE comfortable to wear than the MAC shade (it feels smoother and creamier on the lips) and has a light fresh scent that most Rimmel lipsticks have. This lipstick also lasts longer than the original by a few hours. My only qualm with this one in comparison to the MAC is that because it’s a creamier consistency, it’s a wee bit more difficult to apply neatly. But at more than half price, I am willing to over look this one small fault.
Have you got MAC Plumful or the dupes in your collection?
