A Little Bit Impassioned.


I have fallen in love. With a lipstick shade.

I received this beauty from the gorgeous Vicky after winning her giveaway a few weeks ago. I had heard about MAC's Impassioned long ago from girlies in the blogging community and how much they loved it, and I was always unusually drawn to it at MAC counters. It is the perfect lip colour; bright, vibrant, exotically pink, but best of all, it comes in my favourite finish; the Amplified Creme.

I have jumped on the statement colour bandwagon, if you've read my Upping the Amp post, you'll know why. I have acquired an alarming number of bright pinks recently, MAC's Viva Glam Nicki and Watch Me Simmer have become firm favourites in my collection. But Impassioned... Well. It is in a whole other league.

It adds a certain oomph, and it is a colour that so unusual and showstopping that I just kind of melt a little bit when I whip off the lipstick lid. Sad I know. Does anyone else do this when they see a colour they love? I really hope it isn't just me.

I applied this colour using a lip brush, which I find to be so much better than just applying from the bullet. I find that it looks much cleaner and precise and lasts a lot longer too. The Amplified Creme finish is also a long lasting finish, kind of glossy and kind of creamy, and doesn't dry my lips out like the dreaded Satin or Matte's from MAC do. Rejoice!

I absolutely adore that this shade is an Amplified finish. It really stays on all day and doesn't budge! I wore this lipstick out to dinner with my boyfriend recently to a Michelin starred restaurant, ate 9 courses, NINE!, drank wine, and only re-applied once, post meal. What! Amazing. This is most definitely my new favourite lip product. I see it being permanently tattooed onto my lips in the summer months!

What do you think of Impassioned? What is your favourite lip colour?

  4. Such a nice colour, I asked my mother to pick it up in duty free because she's currently in America but they didn't have it so she said she got something similar, cant wait to see what it is. I may still have to run out and buy it, it looks amazing with blonde hair! x

  18. Impassioned is actually one of my favourite lippies EVER. SUch an amazing colour, and even when it starts to fade off a bit you're left with a beautiful stain on the lips. I'm impassioned about impassioned. Boomboom.

  24. I don't know if my next lipstick should be impassioned OR saint germain! Do you think the saint germain would be too paley/pinky for me?!? Thoughts on twitter if your free! I also have a goodie bag for you I'll be giving it to Julie tomorrow.
