Morgana Cryptoria’s Rose Plum

I selected Rose Plum on a whim: I wanted a cooler lip color, was trying Morgana's lipsticks for the first time…and there was a sale going on. I fell in love with the color almost instantly. It looks like it might be similar to BE's Buxom Fresno - which would be ironic, since I have problems wearing Fresno because it's such a dark color. Yet this lipstick became an instant favorite! It wasn't until a Twitter conversation, where I wondered if Azalea Blue or Cotton Candy matched MAC's Big Bow or Strayin', that I found out that Morgana's Rose Plum is a near-exact match for MAC's Most Popular (from the Hello Kitty collection.)

Rose Plum is just slightly redder than Most Popular, and Rose Plum is more pigmented than Most Popular.
