Review of MAC Impassioned Lipstick
Guest Post By: Pranali
There is this thing with firsts, people always remember their ‘First’ no matter what. Here goes my first review on ISLM with my first MAC Lipstick. I always wanted Party Parrot, an LE of Strength Collection for Spring 2012 but I never could try it. Bright Colors always attracts my sight first. So, MAC Impassioned ended up being the first lipstick I tried at the store.
And that very moment, I knew it had to be mine. Impassioned is sort of Neon shade, a Pinkish Coral Red with warm undertone. I’d say it’s a wonderful cocktail of Coral, Red and Pink that will suit Fair to Wheatish Beauties. It is from the Permanent range.
I would pair this up with winged eyeliner any day to oomph my look. The color is just perfect for a Summery day or even to brighten up a dull day. The color looks warm in bright daylight and cool toned pink indoors. MAC Impassioned is moderately creamy but not moisturizing. Also it accentuates chappiness if the lips are dry, prepping Lips prior with exfoliation and hydration is necessary.
The pigmentation is out of the world, almost like a Matte Lipstick, goes opaque in one swipe. My pigmented lips look even with the application, it beautifully covers my upper lip’s pigmentation. MAC Impassioned lasts for about 5-6 hours and then starts wearing off leaving tint behind. The transfer is almost negligible and it turns to matte finish after sometime. I sometimes use it as Lip tint and put on some clear gloss.
Price of MAC Amplified Crème Lipstick Impassioned
It costs INR 990/-
All that is Good about MAC Amplified Crème Lipstick Impassioned:
1) The Pigmentation. It goes opaque is one singe swipe.
2) Staying Power is as good as a Matte Lipstick.
3) Non-Transferable, survives meals and drinks.
4) Negligible yet pleasant Vanilla Fragrance.
5) Permanent Range, hence no issue trying hands on!
6) The Tint easily comes off with Makeup remover, definitely a plus.
The Bad about MAC Amplified Crème Lipstick Impassioned
1) It might accentuate chapped lips if wore on un-prepped lips.
3) Dry lipped girls should never forget their balms and salves ;)
I think, this will last me long enough. But I will surely get Party Parrot which is more Coral than Impassioned.
Okay... If you are Bold and have a weakness for brights, you should grab one immediately. And I am sure it will suit Dusky beauties as well. I range from NC40-42, It goes well with my Foundation Face. *wink* But trying at the store will not harm you. Will it?
