In one of my previous posts, I mentioned that in between a beauty store was having a major discount on all products. I think it was a Diwali discount. And during that time I picked up two lipsticks from Maybelline- one being the Maybelline Plum Perfect Color Sensational Lipstick.I didn’t pick up the shade for myself, it was for my mom. My mum was looking for a shade for everyday office use and when she swatched the Plum Perfect, she loved it and immediately asked me to take it for her. And so I did.
How to use
- Apply lipstick in the center of your upper lip and follow the contours of your mouth.
- Glide the lipstick across the entire bottom lip
- INR 475 for 4.2gms
My Experience with the Maybelline Plum Perfect Color Sensational Lipstick
Plum Perfect belongs to the Color Sensational line which offers creamy lipsticks that are long lasting in various shades. To be very honest, I expected the shade to be more on the purple side but it was actually a deep berry red with a hint of purple. It’s not extremely bright and not too dark either, it’s just right for those who prefer subtle, not in-your-face shades. While I liked the shade, it’s not one that you would ever spot me wearing. I think it suits women on the older side. In terms of packaging, its the standard Maybelline look. The bullet comes in a silver casing with a purple-ish cap. I think the brand needs to make a slight change in that department. It has been the same look for too long now and it becomes hard to tell the difference in ranges. What I do like about it though, is that the cap sits on very securely making it very travel-friendly as there’s no worry of it getting damaged. The lipstick comes in a creamy texture and because of that it glides on smoothly and makes application very easy. The pigmentation of the product is decent, not very strong. A second application will be required for the exact color to come through. The best thing about it is that since it is creamy and has a gloss to it, it doesn’t highlight the dryness and cracks on the lips. Another thing about the application is that it needs to be done carefully or else it will feather everywhere. It’s best to use the blot technique with this to make it more long-lasting. Also, post meals, a reapplication might be required. In terms of pricing, it’s very affordable. I was lucky to have picked it up during the Diwali discount and so I got a 20% off on the MRP.
