I got Impassioned on a B2M, and this is one of my first five mac lipsticks, which means it certainly caught my eye in the store. I would keep looking around at the other lippies, but then see it again and think 'how bold' and 'retro'. I was going to get something like Snob, but I thought I could pull Impassioned off. I didn't actually wear it for weeks, the pairing of all my makeup (fix fluid, cat eye, heavy contouring) just made me ridiculous with Impassioned smacked on. So I put it away, was about to swap it, but then recently I got a better foundation (mufe hd foun.) and it's really made my face looks so natural and calm that now pairing it with the bold redish/coral amp. creme just looks awesome, sexy. It just makes me look like a lot of fun.
I know, it was a story, but Impassioned deserves a story.
I really like Impassioned. This lipstick would make it to my top fives.
Impassioned is such a gorgeous color I can just stare at the lipstick tube all day - no overhyping intended (:
Impassioned is a sweet bright pink with surprisingly quite warm tones.
I like wearing it with a soft blue-grey smokey eye and some dollymix blush (light-handed application), it looks so dolly-like yet lustful.
Oh, and the pigmentation is great too.
Gorgeous hot pink/coral! INCREDIBLE color! This will definitely turn some heads ;)!!! PS: I don't know what previous reviewer was saying but the fuschia note in this lipstick makes my teeth look strikingly white! LOOOOOOVE IT!!!!!
I love the amplified texture. On me (NW15) this color is a hot pink with coral undertones. A lot of MAC lipsticks feather on me but this one didn't. It left a nice stain that appeared even brighter than the initial application. Overall, Impassioned is a really cheerful color that brightens up my face.
I love love this lipstick! It is a bright warm fuchsia that I love wearing. I'm quite pale with yellow undertones, and it works really well for me. The formula is opaque and moisturizing, as Amplified Cremes are, and it's a great alternative to wearing a red lip. It creates drama and brings attention to the face Great choice.
i would describe this as a *HOT* red with layers of pink and coral. i imagine these tones depend on the wearer's skin tone. on my the color is extremely bright
i'm not a MAC junkie so i am not studied on the different lipstick finishes, but i will say this color is so pigmented that re-application was pretty much unnecessary. it really stuck to and stained my lips. while it is still fresh it migrates a fair bit, so be careful !
this is an off red colour with bright pink hues. Pigmentation is good and it has a subtle shine to the finish (amplified)
I really like this lipstick. I bought it because I wanted a hot pink. It's a great hot pink but it might be too pale for darker skintones because I noticed that it's a little too barbie-ish when I got a tan in the summer. The color is a bright hot pink and would look great on paler skin tones. Pair it with the internationalist dazzleglass and you've got a real winner - ppl won't stop complimenting you so get used to it! I realized that the color intensity decreases as the day wears on so sometimes I have to reapply. That is not the usual case with my other MAC lipsticks though. Although avoid this if you're a real coffee drinker because it can make your teeth appear yellow and not bright white as with blue based lipsticks!
I always keep a backup of this color! LOVE it and have loved it for many moons. Even with my new red hair it works and keeps on giving me some sexxy momma lips:D
Tried this on in the MAC store, from the website I thought it was going to be a red.. well lord do I need to get my monitor checked, this is a very bright ... what i would call fushia. like a hot pinkish off red. Def did not work for me (nc 15 FR)
