There are a few things I love when it comes to lips and some include a soft, plump pout and beautifully colored lips. I guess that is why I am obsessed with all things lipstick and gloss.

MAC Cosmetics is out with a new lipstick that promises to deliver both a soft plump pout and beautifully colored lips, so I, of course, am all in. But, does Plenty of Pout Plumping Lipstick deliver the bee stung lip look you're after?

Let's take a look at the Plenty of Pout Plumping Lipstick shades, the formula, and the results!

First off, Plenty of Pout Plumping Lipstick shades. There are ten; ranging from a soft nude to bright tangerine and cherry red, there is something for everyone in this lineup. 

  • Pout and About: Bright Tangerine
  • Extra Kissable: Creamy Salmon Pink
  • Ample Chic: Creamy Strawberry Pink
  • Extra-Luscious: Mid-tone Creamy Berry Pink
  • Crazy Lush: Bright Cherry Red
  • Lovemaker: Berry Wine
  • Kiss & Cuddle: Soft Yellow Nude
  • So Swell: Mid-tone Cool Brown
  • Smooth Going: Bright Peachy-Pink
  • Nicer Than Nice: Soft, Warm Pink

As far as the formula goes, Plenty of Pout Plumping Lipstick is formulated to create full, bee-stung lips while adding creamy color to the lips. Sounds like the perfect plan. To work, the lipstick is made with invigorating ginger-root complex so that lips volumize immediately. The formula also includes avocadin and other potent oils to help to keep lips soft and smooth.

I definitely feel a tingle within about 10-15 seconds of applying Plenty of Pout Plumping Lipstick. It is not that much of a tingle where it is bothersome, but I definitely notice it. Does that give me a HUGE bee-stung lip look? No. But it does give me a fuller, softly moistened, beautifully colored pout and it is a lip look that I like.

Bonus: MAC included a Plenty of Pout Plumping Lip Gloss with this launch! I am really liking this to add a bit of tingle and soft plump over any lipstick that I wear. The shade of Plenty of Pout Plumping Lip Gloss is a very sheer light pink, that is undetectable, except glossy on its own. It does not interfere with other lipstick or lip gloss shades.
