|MAC Plumful Lipstick|
Today's post is all about the newest member of my MAC lipstick family! A few weeks ago I won a fabulous giveaway from the lovely Lauren Marie, which allowed me to choose my very own shade of MAC lipstick! After much debate, Google swatching, and social media polls the shade See Sheer was chosen. Alas, it was unavailable at the time (le sigh). But, not to worry I picked up the delectable shade Plumful instead!

One of MAC's creme sheen formulas, it is extremely moisturising and comfortable to wear on the lips. Unsurprisingly, this lipstick formula it is also quite sheer, as you can see from the swatches. In terms of longevity, the creme sheen formula is not really intended to be longwearing so expect to reapply fairly frequently. It's the perfect formula for me at the moment, as my poor lips have been extremely dry this winter (see below!).

It's a beautiful colour and very wearable all year round, day or night! I also think this particular shade will work well on most skin tones. From seeing other bloggers rave about this shade recently (namely essiebutton, i.e. Estée) I did expect it to be a little deeper than it actually applies. Although, I now think that could be down to Estée's extremely (Snow White) fair complexion versus my own (silly Orla).

You may know from my previous posts and tutorials that I am a definite fan of a bold lip, but it's great to mix it up a bit and add something a little different to my expansive lipstick collection! All in all, this is a great 'throw in your handbag' kind of lipstick - sheer, easy to apply, super comfortable on the lips, and an extremely wearable shade!
