Lip Look: Plum Diggity with MAC Make-Up Art Cosmetics

Published in: Makeup

With flash

G’morning, ladies!


I was in a plummy mood last night, so while I sat on the couch watching The Closer season finale on Tivo (sidenote: ’twas sooo good!), I played with some of the plum-diggity lip colors from the MAC Make-Up Art Cosmetics collection.

This shiny golden plum lip look comes courtesy of Hold The Pose Lustre Lipstick and On Display Lipglass layered on top of Beurre Cremestick Liner.

Without flash

I think she’ll look really pretty with a wash of shimmery taupe over the eyelid (Satin Taupe, maybe?) and some thick black cat eyeliner from Lorac! 🙂

What would you pair with this lip look?


Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,


P.S. I saw that that Benefit now has a new loose matte powder called Matterial Girl ($24, online only for now).


I’m a total loose powder fiend!

    Love that lipcolour on you! I need to check out that Benefit powder. I get shine-o-rific pretty quickly, and I always need some matte powder! 🙂

  3. That lip color looks amazing on you! I thought On Display was a bit too dark for me so I passed….but now you are making me rethink it. =)

    Ok, Benefit just does it to me every time. I am lovin this packaging & the idea of a matte loose setting powder. Bring it on….

    Btw – lip combo is gorge!!

    Stellar lip color, and I’m keen to hear about the matte powder!

    Urgh. Just got the impies off to the first day of school aka first day I have to wake up at the new time… I’m sooo tired!

    Love the plum! I think black liner would look prime with it. Speaking of that, is Lorac’s Front of the Line Pro better than Mac’s Penultimate liner? I thought that one was average.

  9. Marce says:

    Tht lip combo is lovely! And the overall makeup look that came to your mind sounds delicious, makeup-wize. Another cute way to wear it would be with a neutral cat eye, whatdya think?

    Sheesh, Karen. Leave it to you to make me want something from their fall collection. 🙂 I was contemplating just the lipglass, but I love that combo on you. Gotta get that LORAC liner, too–I have MAC’s Penultimate, which I do like, but I’m interested to see how it is when compared with the LORAC one.

  11. CC says:

    I love plum lip colors – it’s part of the reason why I love fall so much!

  12. Kristen says:

    Karen, I was totally unimpressed with these colors from the fall collection, but they look amazing on you! Now I want, even though we have totally different skintones.

    OMGoodness Karen! I *lurve* this look. I’m so itching for fall and can’t wait to break out my plum lippies. This is so pretty.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Amanda,

      Normally I can’t let go of summer, but this year I want fall to just hurry up and come already! I’m ready for the boots, the sweaters and the deep, rich lip colors. 🙂

  17. Stef says:

    Golden Plum, that sounds as good as it looks! Very, very pretty Karen.

    Hey Karen,

    I wouldn’t have thought about putting those 2 together. Very pretty. Sometimes, I just do a really pretty lip and some eyeliner and mascara, no shadow. I have a cream liner by mufe that stays on w/o any primer and that’s really awesome.

    Thanks for your well wishes. My eyes are still sore, but the pain has lessened. If it’s not gone by the end of the week I will see a doctor. BTW, I wore my photo realism quad today and it’s so incredible I want to scoop up the other 2 that I had no interest in! I haven’t tackled the orange liner yet, though.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Shontay,

      Sometimes, when I REALLY LOVE most of a collection (there’s usually at least a few things that are just okay, right?), I’ll still buy stuff that I feel so-so about just so that it feels complete. If you get those other two quads you’ll totally be set in the quad department from this release. 🙂

      I love the look of a simple eye and a strong lip, too. There’s so many possibilities with liner — cat eye, smudged pencil, tightlining…

      Anyway, glad to hear the eyes are feeling a little better. Got any exciting plans for this evening?

  19. Kelly says:

    I am loving the way those look on you, but I don’t think they would work as well on me, sigh. Just got my new eye shadows from that collection today though yay!

    That plum combo looks fierce on you 😀 I would pair it with Dior’s new Smoky Jazz palette on the eyes and your new Dior Liquorice nail polish. What do you think?
    Benefit’s packaging is always great!

    This looks great on your lips. I love the color.
