MAC Amplified Creme Lipstick «Impassioned»: Swatches & Review
MAC Amplified Creme Lipstick «Impassioned» is one of the lipstick I’ve had a great pleasure to play with and in the same time it is very confusing because of the color.
Availability: at MAC counters and online.
Price: 14.5$ for 3 gr (US).
Limited edition? No.
Final Thoughts: creamy lipstick with full coverage, good pigmentation and color payoff (at leaste for my shade). It is quite lasting (up to 6-7 hours for dark and bright colors). It doesn’t dry my lips as hard as lipsticks from the matte MAC range. I would have said it’s not drying, but if you already have dry parts of your lips, they will absorb the color. You will definitely need a makeup remover for waterproof or lasting products. Impassioned is an interesting shade — kind of fuchsia, but very complex. If I were you I would go to MAC counter to check yourself instead (or before) purchasing online.
Please, read my review in Russian for maximum details on the product. Color detailes and images are given below.
Impassioned is a very complex color that is changing depending on the light, daytime, angle you look at and some other circumstances. The most likely it is bright creamy fuchsia (no shimmer), but I can see also hints of berry, coral pink, barbie pink, flamingo and finishes from quite calm (well fuchsia-calm) creamy to bright neon.

I decided not to confuse you with many pictures and different views of the lipstick, but to show what I think will give an average impression about this shade.
