Maybelline Plum-Setter Color Whisper Lipstick is one of several new, limited edition shades of Color Whisper Lipstick that popped up late this Summer in drugstores. I’m now seeing these displays everywhere which is a good thing because Maybelline Plum-Sette Color Whisper Lipstick is thee perfect vampy shade of purple for the Fall season!
P.S. I love you and I can’t wear purple lipstick anything…
But I like owning it and looking at and imagining all the comments I’ll get telling me how bad it looks 🙂
If you’re one of the lucky few out there who rocks a goth lip and funky shades of purple this sheerer shade will be great for you. And for those scared of purple? Try it anyway as it is sheer enough to be wearable without letting your inner goth out of the box too much.
The plummy shade is a lighter purple with fine silver sparkle. Sparkle is pretty new to the Color Whisper Lipstick range and many of these limited edition shades I’ve reviewed recently like Nude on Night Out and Coral Tease all have a shimmery finish. It’s rather novel as the permanent range doesn’t have any shimmery shades.
The color is pigmented but once applied it tends to show a bit of my natural lip color under it. I suggest applying a few layers to build the color up for the best color payoff. The formula is soft, moisturizing, and has a high sheen (even more of a glossiness than what you’d see from colors in the permanent collection). The sparkle added to the color gives a nice hint of of a shimmery finish.
Plum-Setter isn’t really my color but it’ll look gorgeous on many skin tones particularly for the darker skinned ladies!
It’s available now, for a limited time, at drugstores.
