Maybelline Colorsensational Plum Luster - Swatch and Review

Been feeling more tired these past couple days. I'm going through my drafts and all I have are pictures, except for this overdue post. Even though I've had this lipgloss for a little while, I didn't start wearing it until a couple weeks ago. Gonna have to catch up on posts this weekend. Got some new stuff I wanna show ya too.

  • Rectangular shaped clear tube with a silver cap. I prefer clear tube as opposed to matching color tubes because it give you a better idea of what the inside looks like. 
  • Doe foot applicator
  • .17 oz or 5 ml

  • Plum Luster is muted toned down mauvy plum with fine pink and silver shimmers.
  • The pigmentation is good. Almost opaque. The formula is a little thick and squishy, yet non-sticky. It applies evenly. Feels comfortable and a bit hydrating.
  • It last about 3 hours on the lips before it starts fading but it has some staining ability and the stain do last up to 8 hours. 
  • It has a subtle syrupy scent. Don't love it but I can tolerate it.

Final Thought

Overall, I'm pleased with the formula, pigmentation, and longevity. I was pleasantly surprised that the staining lasted as long as it did. This isn't a shade I would normally wear on a typical day but when I do I like to blot it a bit to give it a softer look.

Rating: 9/10

Price: $6-$8
Availability: CVS, Walgreens


  1. I love this shade. The silver shimmers make the whole look pop.
    I also blot my lip gloss to tone it down, especially if it's a really vibrant shade like this one.

    1. I agree, the silver shimmers add some depth to it.

  2. Thanks for your lip swatch and full face swatch! Super helpful! :)

  3. This is very pretty! I agree with you on the clear tubes--so much better for picking out a shade than a colored tube.

    1. Yeah, thought they have the potential to be deceiving if the company claim the product to be intense and you come to find the pigmentation is not as opaque as you expected.

  4. Such a gorg shimmery berrish shade! I'd love this as an addition to my collection but we don't have these glosses here!

    1. Awww man! At least you too have other brands that you can enjoy that are not available here.

  5. The color is so gorgeous! I thought it would be deep but it's quite bright and would be good for summer!

    Just made various social media accounts too so if you'd like to follow me in any of them, I would really appreciate it! :) I just followed you on facebook and twitter.
