This review has been pending for a long time now for the simple reason that I was too busy for the past few days to do an FOTD. It had been on my wish list for a fairly long time, but for some reason or the other I was not able to get it. And when I finally got it, I took a long time to do a proper look to do justice to a color as gorgeous as this one.
M.A.C. describes Impassioned (INR 990 / 3 g) as an Amped Up Fuchsia. To me it is a super bright Pink , almost neon, with slight red undertone and a hint of coral. It comes with the Amplified Creme finishes from M.A.C which is probably the most popular finish because of the creaminess of the texture combined with the strongest of pigments.I personally, find it more wearable than Girl About Town because of the warmth of the color that really compliments my skin tone (especially on good skin days!!). The lipstick is super pigmented and gives opaque color coverage in one coat though I like to go for two out of habit. I get more than 8 hours of wear with this lipstick and even after it fades, it leaves a polished looking even stain which is almost as bright as the lipstick itself.
I love Impassioned to the core but my use with this is restricted to mostly evening wear. Also, since I love wearing color on my eyes , and though this lipstick is very bright and talks for itself, I still like to put some shades of either lime green/ silvery grey on my lids ,along with a bright blush to complete the look. Impassioned ranks in my top 5 MAC lipsticks and I would most likely buy it all over again when there's a need to.....For now, it is going to be my favorite Summer lipstick this season and I am totally enjoying wearing this one along with the attention it grabs for me ;)
Highly Recommended if you love Bright Colors, a must-have from M.A.C. !!
