MAC Eyeshadow Plum Dressing Review, Swatch and EOTD

Hi IMBB Beauties!

MAC Plum dressing is a plummy pinkish purple shade and definitely one of the prettiest purples from MAC. I had initially wanted to buy a more reddish warmer shade but the MUA recommended this shade and I picked it up.

Price: Rs 680 for refill and Rs 900 for single.

My take on the product: The eyeshadow is not a true purple but one with a pinkish, plum undertone and quite a unique and pretty shade that will suit a lot of skin tones. It has a veluxe pearl finish and hence is not flat matte. The finish and color is such that it can be worn in a lot of ways- subtle as well as dramatic, in the day as well as in the night, and that is why I like the shade so much. Also, it is quite a flattering eyeshadow for dark hair/eyes and warm skin tones because of the warm plummy/red undertone – will suit Indian skin tones and brown eyes a lot.
Ways to wear it-
1. In the crease paired with another neutral shade on the lid.
2. All over the lid with lighter pinker shade to blend it out in the crease.

3. With a pink shade (like MAC Cranberry) over lid and Plum dressing on the outer corner and crease. Color can be built up for a dramatic look
4. Pair with bronze/gold shade on the lid for a party look to pair with ethnic outfits.


PROS of MAC Plum dressingw Eyeshadow:
1. Pretty color that will flatter many skin tones.
2. Can be worn in many ways- for subtle as well as dramatic looks.
3. Nice pigmentation and soft smooth texture.
4. Veluxe pearl finish- neither too dull as matte shades nor too shimmery.
5. Stays on lids for a good 5-6 without primer without creasing (I have mildly oily lids) and longer with a primer.
6. Color can be built up for more intense look.
7. The warm undertone makes it a great purple for Indian skin tones and brown eyed beauties.

CONS of MAC Plum dressing Eyeshadow:
1. Expensive since it is MAC.
2. Colorpay off is good but not as good as some other MAC eye shadows like Amber lights and Cranberry- need to build up the colo r.


Overall verdict: It is a pretty and unique purple with pink and plummy undertones with a veluxe pearl finish. It is quite a versatile shade and it can be worn in a lot of ways. The texture is very smooth and pigmentation is quite good though you need to build up the color. Staying power is good and lasts 5-6 hours or more without creasing without a primer too. Not a must-have shade but a good one to have in an eye makeup lover’s collection.
