MAC impassioned lipstick

I've recently become obsessed with coral lipsticks. I think they are perfect for spring, whether worn in the day or night. Mac impassioned is an almost neon pink with a slight coral tone to it. It's an amplified finish which is definitely my favourite mac finish as they're extremely vibrant and long lasting, and although they're mostly matte, they still have a slight sheen to them and they are pretty moisturising too. This colour definitely packs a punch, so it's not one to go for if you want a subtle, easily wearable pinky coral. If you're like me and love wearing the brightest lipstick possible but cant seem to find one with enough pigment or often find pinks too blue toned, then check out this shade.

 The colour comes out pretty much as it looks in the tube, and is completely opaque in a couple of swipes. I think it compliments warm skintones really well, but it could also be very striking on very pale or deep skintones. As for the lasting power, i would say that it lasts very well. I've been wearing this lipstick for around 4 hours, and in that time ive had a cup of tea, numerous cups of water and also scoffed down a chinese takeaway, and i've still got a stain on my lips. I really like the fact that it's evenly faded and not left a bright ring around my lips, which can often be the worry when wearing a bright lipstick out. If you weren't to eat and drink as much as i did, i'm sure this lipstick could last a good few hours without needing a touch up.


I can see this lipstick being a staple in my collection for the spring and summer, as it can really liven up an otherwise plain and simple makeup look. I love this paired with a smokey eye and heavy contouring, or even just a slick of mascara and some bronzer. It's extremely versatile. My quest to own every possible lipstick shade in existance continues, but for now, i am very happy with this purchase!

Whats you're favourite lipstick? Would you be brave enough to wear this?
