Mac Impassioned Lipstick Review

Mac Impassioned Lipstick

If you watched my London and Nottingham Haul video (here), you will have heard me mention a lipstick that I have been dying to try for so long now.  It is of course, Mac’s Impassioned lipstick.  This is a beautiful vibrant pink shade that is very similar to Topshop’s Brighton Rock that I already own.

It is described by Mac as ‘Amped up Fuchsia’ and being part of the ‘Amplified’ collection, it have a creme sheen finish too it.  I’ve seen lots of bloggers describe this as more of a watermelon shade but I must disagree slightly.  While I think it is very close to watermelon is is definitely more vibrant than any watermelon I’ve ever seen!
On the lips, colour wise, it is very intense and the colour goes on fairly opaquely.  I was a little worried about if this colour would wash out my pale skin but it actually bought a much needed pop of colour to my otherwise neutral makeup.  It is also very long lasting and even once it has started to wear off the colour that it leaves behind is still vibrant and doesn’t really look like worn down lipstick, but it’s own, more subtle shade.  I really like this lipstick and while I can’t see this being an ‘everyday’ office colour it will definitely get to come out to play on the weekend!
