If you are looking for that blue-based pink, non-drying and slightly hydrating lipstick that you can definitely wear either it’s Spring or Fall, then the Mac Impassioned Lipstick is your best bet.
Mac Impassioned is described as an amped up fuchsia with an amplified cream finish. On my lips, it appears as a vivid, bright fuchsia with subtle cool undertones. It’s almost comparable to a bubblegum pink in brightness but still won’t be considered under the neon category. It averages 5 hours (still w/ creamy consistency), 7 hours (still with full pigmentation) of wear on me. It left a stain on my lips for the next 3 hours or so. The formulation and pigmentation of Mac Impassioned is simply intense and the best. It hydrates my lips during the first 2 hours but still maintains its creaminess up to the 5th hour. Applying the lipstick straight from the tube, tugs a lil bit on my lips but it is not detrimental into such point that it still deserves the 9/10 rating. It also has lesser transfer when compared with Mac Vegas Volt. It is non-drying with a slightly hydrating formula. It has enough slip that feels and sits comfortably on my lips but not too much that it will bleed or feather.
The Bottom Line:
It really lived up to its name as an amplified cream finish. Its pigmentation is so intense and the creamy consistency had just enough slip for it not to bleed nor feather. I absolutely love this shade and this will look great on all skin tones but are most flattering on olive, medium, deep tan to deep skin and can definitely be worn regardless of the season. In my opinion, the amplified cream finish from Mac Cosmetics are definitely the best I’ve tried from them in terms of formulation, comfort, application, pigmentation and longevity of wear. It offers the best pigmentation without being too drying on your lips like the matte finished lipsticks. I love how it still looks fab even on the 10th hour of wear. You don’t have to worry about how your lips look and be confident enough that it stays beautifully throughout the entire day.
