MAC Cosmetics: Lipstick - Amorous (available here) - Cost $14.50
A satin finish, plum/mauve lipstick with a hint of brown to it. Not quite matte, with opacity and pigmentation of a matte lipstick but a little less drying and with a bit glossiness to it.
Amorous is among the first MAC lipsticks I bought. I really didn't check finishes or reviews before buying - just went in, swatched a few, and picked up the ones that seemed like they would work for me. MAC describes Amorous as a Lovestruck Cranberry. Having never encountered a lovestruck cranberry, I am going to have to describe this shade rather blandly as a plum/mauve with faint brown undertones to it :P
On me, the brown undertones are not really that very obvious though it makes this a deeper colour than what a regular mauve or plum would be. The lipstick has a faint, sweet vanilla fragrance to it that I detect while applying and promptly forget about soon after. With no shimmer or shine to it, this satin finish lipstick packs a lot of pigment and a hint of glossiness. It looks plum on me, and whatever brown undertones it has, they really don't bother to show up on my lips - and thankfully so. I am no fan of brown shades :D This is how it looks on me - swatches and FOTD.

MAC Cosmetics Lipstick: Amorous - Ingredients
If you are duskier skinned and looking for a plum/mauve colour lipstick, you can add MAC's Amorous lipstick to your list of potentials. If you are lighter and/or find this too dark to use on a regular basis, you could tone down the colour by apply it lightly as a stain or just blot with some paper to leave a pretty stain on the lips. Yes, it's not a colour that really stands apart, but it's one of those colours that anybody could find a use for :)
