I Heart MAC Impassioned Lipstick

This featured in my Birthday post earlier in the week and I couldn’t wait to share the full review. Impassioned has been on my “Lust” list for a while now but I was guilted out of buying it because I already own a few hot pink lipsticks and couldn’t justify another. The thing is, this is NOT just another hot pink lipstick, this one’s special!
I heart you!
MAC describe it as an Amped-up fuchsia and they’re not wrong. It’s LOUD but not too over the top and definitely less in your face than Girl about Town. I’ve heard it described as a Neon Watermelon and that’s a fair description. It is a BRIGHT pink but it also has some bright coral tones which give it a real brightening effect. It’s an instant pick me up... if you need to get glam in a hurry, this is your boy!

With the flash
It’s an Amplified crème lipstick, as the name suggests it’s very pigmented and has a cream finish (shinier than the mattes, but no shimmer or sparkle). They are one of MAC’s more moisturising options, which combined with the pigmentation makes them a real favourite. This one lasts and last. I wore it out on Saturday night and it outlasted my messy mussels and frites. Only problem is, it does stain the lips a little. I was still wearing it the following day and I washed my face... honest!

Here it is in action. Poor lighting and it looks more fuchsia than it does in the flesh, but you get the gist.. 

Note to self, not all bright pinks are equal. I may have others but this one is in a league of its own!
