MAC lipstick to be reviewed today is "Impassioned".
Before moving on with the review I would like to tell you that MAC lipsticks come in nine different finishes, which are as follows:
- Amplified Creme
- Retro Matte
Impassioned in an Amplified Creme finish lipstick. What exactly does Amplified Creme finish means? These lipsticks give opaque coverage similar to the matte formula but are much less drying. They are very creamy and soft-textured lipsticks. Even though they have incredible coverage and opacity, they are not completely matte and they last for a long time too. So if a matte finish is not your cup of tea I would definitely suggest this or a Cremesheen finish.
This lipstick comes in a black, hard, plastic container with MAC printed on it in silver. This is the best water-melon pink I have ever come across! It is a pretty pink with red undertones. This is one of those colours which can suit all most all skin tones be it wheatish, Asian tones, olive tones to more dark skin tones. It is such an intense pink more towards neon pink but less glossy which is the best part. This lipstick is full of pigment, having said that even when the lip colour fades it leaves behind a gorgeous strawberry pink tint on my lips which looks so natural and pretty that one would never want to take it off their lips.
I usually wear this lipstick to school and it stays put on my lips the entire time am out! Even with frequent meals it tends to feather away slightly but it fades with a strawberry tint behind which does not look bad at all. The longest this lipstick has stayed on my lips was for seven hours straight with no re-application in between! Impassioned by MAC is a winner for me, as this colour enhances the over all look on my face. This is one of those perfect colours which even if worn alone with no make-up will make your face look as pretty as anything.
I prefer wearing this colour during the day time mostly but can be worn during evenings too. It is ideal for summers, like I can wear this one colour the entire summer and trust me I would never get bored of my look, hehe! Although can also be used during winters as the colour can always be blotted down to a more subtle shade.
Since Impassioned is Amplified creme finish it does not dry out my lips at all. The entire time I'm wearing it, it keeps my lips hydrated and moisturised. Since the consistency is creamy it is not transfer resistant. The vanilla scent of this lipstick is divine like all other MAC lipsticks.
Over-all I would highly recommend this to all of you. This is one colour which will never let you down I'm sure! This is one of the finest lip colours by MAC. Three cheers for Impassioned!
