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.
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!)
