The Autumn Lip: Mac Plumful alternatives (and a dupe)

From top to bottom: Mac Plumful, Topshop Lovestruck, Revlon Ultimate Suede in Preview, Kiko Utlra Glossy Stylo in 813 (Apple Blossoms), Bourjois Color Boost in Plum Russian, Marc Jacobs Lip Vinyl in Kissability 

When Autumn comes about, time has come for beauty bloggers to list their favorite lip colors for Fall and a recurrent appearance on these lists is Mac Plumful. And while Plumful is a beautiful lipstick that I like to dig out every September, I have complied a selection of alternatives and have even found a dupe in the process! These are almost exclusively drugstore priced products and offer the same sheer mauvy-berry hue that is so appreciated in Plumful.

Here are my picks:

  • Topshop lovestruck: I'm so glad to have found this lipstick as it is truly the closest dupe i have found for Plumful. Beautiful color, beautiful finish: a must have!
  • Revlon Ultimate Suede lipstick in Preview: Although this one has a very weird formula (glossy at first, then it sets like a liquid lipstick), I still find myself going back to this color as it is extremely flattering and not too vampy.
  • Kiko Ultra Glossy Stylo in 813: The Glossy Stylo from Kiko are one of my ultimate favorite line of lipsticks out there. The shade 813 is quite light, but still gives that effortless Autumn vibe to your look. Plus it's super moisturizing. Bonus!
  • Bourjois Color Boost In Plum Russian: While being a bit richer and darker than Plumful (but still very close), Plum Russian is also a very good alternative and it will give you that sheer but buildable raspberry color for a fraction of the price!
  • Marc Jacobs Lip Vinyl in Kissability: This is not so much an alternative as more of a little "something extra" that would nicely sit on top on any of these lipsticks and looks super pretty on its one.
What is your must-have lip color for Fall? Let me know in the comments! :-)
