So you may or may not have noticed that I really don’t buy MAC products. This is generally because I don’t like going into MAC stores; the feel too small and I always feel like the people are trying to make me buy stuff instead of letting me look around. Anyways, I went in to look at their lipsticks, as you may remember I mentioned how I’m liking lip stuff right now, and I know a lot of people love their lipsticks.
I pretty much immediately fell in love with this colour, and even accidentally swatched it twice on my hand, not realising that I’d picked it up twice because I liked it so much. A week later, I was still wishing I had it, so I let myself buy it:
As you can see from the pictures, Impassioned is a bright pink lipstick from their Amplified line. In person, I feel that it has a bit of a coral tone to it, but that isn’t coming across in the pictures for some reason.
Anyways, I really love this lipstick for a couple of reasons: 1) The pigmentation is really wonderful, and it goes on bright and slightly glossy. 2) It’s also really creamy and soft, and it feels great on my lips. 3) It smells delicious, basically like chocolate! 4) It has pretty good staying power. I’m not saying it doesn’t transfer, because it sure does, but it also really stays on my lips. I think that speaks to the pigmentation of it too, that even after I blot, it can transfer onto my coffee cup and still be bright and lovely on my lips. I can’t think of any cons for this lipstick.
It was just over $20 CAD after taxes, which is a little pricey for a lip product, in my opinion, but I’m so in love with it that I won’t complain. I’d also love to try out a few more of their lipsticks, maybe for a couple more of their lines. I would definitely recommend trying one out if you never have; they have a bunch of lines, so whether you like matte, crème, shimmery, glossy, or whatever, they probably have something you’d like.
Let me know what your favourite MAC lipsticks are, so I can go check them out! Thanks for reading, as always! =)
