Dupe? MAC Plumful and Max Factor Lipfinity in Evermore Lush

Max Factor Lipfinity in 60 Evermore Lush and Mac Plumful (I don't even know what happened to it, don't ask me)
Bottom: Mac Plumful 

Hi everyone, today I thought I'd share a possible dupe I discovered recently. I really wanted to try one of the new Lipfinity lipsticks from Max Factor but wasn't really amazed by any of the swatches until I suddenly had a thought that one of them looked a bit like Mac's Plumful, which I already own but barely wear anymore since it looks like I retrieved it from the fiery depths of hell. When swatched next to each other they don't look that similar. To me, Plumful is slightly pinker and a tad darker however the Max Factor swatch is more plummy. Bear in mind that the light is stronger on the Max Factor swatch so it appears a bit lighter than it really is (blame my photography). The Max Factor one also has a bit more shimmer in it whilst Plumful is a lustre finish so has more of a gloss than a shimmer. I don't really care for gloss or shimmer, I'd prefer it if they were both matte but whatever. 
When they are both on the lips I think they look really similar, it's almost impossible to tell the difference in fact. I always pat lipsticks into my lips and when you do this it kind of gets rid of the finish so they both look like they have the same finish in the end. 
There's about a £6.50 difference in price between these two lipsticks so it's not the most amazing dupe but if you are trying to save a few pounds then it could be worth it. I, for one, won't bother buying Plumful again which I was planning on doing before I found this dupe.
Let me know in the comments if you have any other good dupes or what you think of this dupe. Thanks for stopping by! Lots of love,


  1. Plumful is one of those colours that I've always wanted to try out - but I'll definitely give the Max Factor one a swatch on my next shopping trip instead! Thanks so much for sharing x

    1. I'd recommend Plumful to anyone but it doesn't hurt to try the cheaper one! Thank you for reading :) xx
