Maybelline Lipstick | Rich Plum

I wanted to get this review but before the seasons changed and it's not really the time to wear this kind of lippy anymore! This lipstick is a great transitional colour for me. It's not the deep purple/red shade that everyone went crazy over this winter, but it's still got a nice winter richness to it. 
I cannot describe colours to save my life, but for something called Rich Plum, I wouldn't say this is a plum lipstick. It's a nice wearable colour, and it has an packaging. 

I think Maybelline always great on the packaging front, and this lipstick is not different. The bullet twists down the entire way, so damage is minimal. The outside case is plastic, but it doesn't feel cheap or anything like that. 
It's beautifully pigmented. The swatch underneath is just one swipe of the lipstick, and I think it's really opaque for one swipe. You'll have to excuse the slightly out of focus picture, but it does give an idea of the colour. As I said, this is my winter  to early spring so that I can hold onto the more pigmented, dark shades a little longer
