Maybelline Lipsticks in Plum Perfect, Plum Paradise and Dazzling Plum

I got bit by the plum lipstick bug this winter. Those pesky bugs. I need bug spray.

I scored three shades for super cheap at both Rite Aid (Maybelline on sale for 40% off) and at the Cosmetics Market.




L-R: Plum Perfect, Plum Paradise, Dazzling Plum



It’s in the same order as listed above.

Here they are in sunlight:



Dazzling Plum seems to be the only true plum here. Plum Perfect is somewhat brick reddish. Plum Paradise is darker and slightly red.

I really like Plum Perfect and Dazzling Plum. Plum Paradise is nice, it but runs a little close to being frosty for me. I don’t think shimmery lipstick finishes look great on me.

Which ones are your favorites?

    Aww, yeah. Love me some plum lipstick! It is related to purple, and therefore Rogue approved :-D(except in those instances where it;’s plum but the call it ‘purple’ or ‘violet’, the sneaky buggers)
