MAC Impassioned ~ Lipstick Of The Month!

When you're browsing the MAC website, is there a particular swatch from the wall of lipstick swatches that you always end up clicking?
For me, it has a-l-w-a-y-s been Impassioned. I think I've clicked on it, like, 30 times. So in September last year, before leaving New Delhi, I decided to get it & try out the attractive thing. But I didn't start using it until December! Now I'm wearing it at least twice a week. Mostly because all the warm clothes I have to wear in this weather are black, and I just want to brighten up something. 
Finish: Amplified. Somewhere between creamy & matte (MAC matte). It's pigmented like a matte lipstick & moisturizing like a creamy lipstick. It's comfortable and always looks lip-friendly. MAC's Amplified finish is one of the best, and my lips love it!
Color: Amped Up Fuchsia. When it's gloomy, it looks pinker & cool-toned. But when it's sunny, it look warmer & the coral undertone shows up more.
Longevity: It doesn't need to be touched-up for for  2-3 hours on me. Usually, I only need to retouch the center of my lips.
Scented? Nope.
It's similar to, but lighter, than MAC Party Parrot Lipstick. I'll maybe do a separate comparison post sometime. 
MAC Impassioned is definitely one of the best bright lipsticks out there. A cheery color on a drab winter day. A fun & flirty color on a sunny day at the beach (I want to be in GOA!)

Price ~ Rs.990

  1. Arey mine's scented! And I love, LOVE Impassioned! I still get excited about this colour when I see it with a bunch of other colors and end up clicking on the link to find out which colour! Happened with your curling rod post too even after owning it for more than a year!

  7. I've been on the hunt for this lipstick too but it's sold out at the MAC stores in south Bombay. So I bought Elizabeth Arden lipstick in watermelon coz that's supposed to be a more expensive and glossier version of this (note to self: need to review that soon.)

  15. It's such a lovely color and leaves a strong stain afterwards. Your swatch looks quite coral. However, it looks more fuchsia on me.

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
