MAC Impassioned Lipstick Review

Impassioned. Another dangerously daring colour from the MAC Amplified collection, but one that I LOVE. It’s not for the faint hearted, probably not as vibrant and in your face as Girl About Town but it’s on that scale. It’s an electric pink shade and I love how it transfers onto the lips. It’s such a statement lipstick and can certainly add that extra something to the simplest of outfits. Like all the Amplified finishes, it is super pigmented and isn’t drying either. So you can have your statement lippy whilst keeping your pout moisturised! It's very long lasting and I’d suggest using a lip brush with this one, and certainly a mirror as the colour is so intense it can leave stubborn staining around your mouth, swatching on my hand was bad enough! About staining, this certainly stains the lips after prolonged wear, it can become quite difficult to remove and the colour is still reminiscent after cleansing, so make sure you do it thoroughly unless you fancy looking like the joker! But of course I am willing to put up with these cons for the simple fact that I love this beautiful shade!
Left - Swatch with flash/ Right - Swatch without flash. My camera unfortunately washed most of the vibrancy out of this colour, in person it is much louder than what is displayed on these photos. The colour is reflected best in the shot with the flash however.
Impassioned - £15 @ MAC

Have you ever tried this MAC shade? What is your favourite one?
