Review: MAC Impassioned (Amplified) Lipstick

First of all, let me confess....I feel stupid smiling at the camera on self-timer...Hats off to the bloggers who do it with so much poise! Nevertheless, I will keep practicing till I master the art.Wish me luck!

I have a story behind this lipstick, I wanted a hot pink lippie since March and I wanted "Girl About Town" or "Hot Pink" by NYX...One day my sister who lives in Mumbai went to NYX counter.She asked me if I wanted anything and I asked her to check if Hot pink was available having very thin hopes (I have been to that store in Mumbai and they DO NOT HAVE a good collection) but coincidentally, Hot Pink was available and being over excited, I asked her to get it for me.When I received the lippie, I was even happier coz the color was exactly what I wanted. After few days of gloating over it, I finally used it one day. And I WAS DISSAPOINTED!! The color was so sheer and too neon!!!! Even on applying 3-4 coats, the color kept sliding on my lips...ugggh! Now I desperately wanted Girl About Town but since I was at my hometown, there was no MAC store available. But as soon as I reached back to Delhi, I rushed to a MAC Counter to buy Girl About Town but when I tried it on, it somehow didn't look good on me! I guess, it was too blue toned for my skin type. I was sooooo dissapointed but then the SA offered me Impassioned, I was still upset and half-heartedly tried the lippie and OMG!! This was the color!!! The perfect hot pink!!!! I bought it without any second thoughts and mahn, I am glad I did!After a month, I still can't get enough of it!he he...

Okay now, onto the review.....

MAC Impassioned Lipstick is a full on Amplified Creme Lipstick and gives a very opaque finish in one swipe.
MAC describes it to be Amped-up fuchsia and I agree with this description. It is bang-on the trend of fuchsia pink lips!

Price - Rs.990/-

What I like about this lipstick:
- The color!!! Perfect hot pink...!!!
- Quite moisturizing, I do not apply any gloss over it.
- Long Lasting...well, it's MAC so, OBVIOUSLY!
- The color do not budge at all, even if it fades, it leaves a strong tint.
- No need to apply any lip liner underneath.
- Color pay-off is amazing!and buildable...

What I don't like about this lipstick:
- well. NOTHING :P

Swatches: Left - 1 swipe, Right - 3 swipes

Lip Swatch

I feel my camera is not doing justice to the click HERE for a more accurate swatch.Yes, that's how neon this lippie is!!!

ur skin is just flawless !! touchwood ^_^
and the shade is gorgeous !! but MAC is so overpriced :( you have to think at least twice thrice before purchasing MAC products !!

Srish said...

@Purnima - Thank u dear :)
I know what you mean by MAC being over is!! I agree with you but don't you think they give quality worth the money? they have the best cosmetics in terms of quality as well in price.Even I buy hardly one or two product a month...but that one product gives me the thrill that no other brand can ^_____^

Lily said...

gorrrrgeous i LOVE this colour on u!

Lerina Melissa said...

You know, based on swatches that I've may want to try CoverGirl's Lip Perfection lipstick in Temptress or Revlon's Moon Drops lipstick in Persian Melon because these two shades look similar to Impassioned. They're also much cheaper, so I think it's worth trying out and you can always return it if you don't like it. They both have great staying power and aren't drying.
