Impassioned is more on the fuchsia side on my lips; I agree with everyone else though – it’s a warm fuchsia, with undertones of watermelon. It applies very creamy and thick, straight out of the tube, and if worn like that, on my lips, collects in the creases, feathers and shows up dry flakes. I find this lipstick very drying – it literally sucks the moisture from them. This is annoying, since the colour is so good. I can get around this by applying it over Carmex, blotting, applying more, and blotting – however, I’m wearing it now, and even like this, it does feel quite tight on my lips. I have quite full lips but Impassioned makes them seem creased. I hate to be the lone dissenter.
This is a colour that when when you try it on for the first time you just think wow!
its such a amazing colour i read reviews about this and searched for it in store i would never give a second look to this normally but due to the reviews i wanted to try it on and i think i like this better than all of my mac lipsticks lol..
its such a flattering colour and it just wakes up your face n brings serious charector to it..
I just love this lipstick i cant explain whats so special about it you just have to try it on and u'll understand
I don't know how I lived my life before I met Impassioned. Dead. Serious. This color is amazing A-MA-ZING on tan skin. It provides this beautiful warm bright pink color! I will repurchase until I am old and wrinkly.
The texture! The color! The name! I ordered this lipstick from MAC after seeing it on Leona Lewis in a magazine. I adore it. It's a mixture of fuschia, coral, & red & universally flattering. I like to wear it w/ a little black eyeliner & a light dusting of bronzer on the cheeks. It's my go to summer look.
This is a VERY bright lipstick and not for those who are afraid of color. People will look at you lol. The texture of this is amazing! It last on me for almost all day! I brightens up my face so nicely. I think you could wear it day or night, it's such a fun lippie. This has to be one of my top 3 favorite lipstick.
For reference, I am MAC NC30 Asian with neutral warm undertones. I wore Mac Impassioned over Nars Sex Machine lip liner to give it more of a fushia look. I chose this lip color to go with my Little Black Dress outfit with Hot Pink accessories.
For my eyes I did a smokey black look using Mac Coppering with Mac Carbon in the crease. Then I used Mac #34 lashes which looks great with smokey eyes. I completed my look with a light handed swipe of Nars Orgasm blush using the Mac 187 skunk brush. This is one of my favorite clubbing looks <3 <3 <3
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.
