Impassioned

In case you haven’t noticed, I have WAY too many lipsticks. So many that I often forget what I have and end up with exact dupes or shades so similar that it’s not worth it to have both. After giving away and throwing out a huge chunk of my lipstick collection I probably still have at least 80. Yes, I seriously have a problem. To get the most out of my collection I’ve been pulling out lipsticks that don’t get enough love and trying to wear a different shade daily instead of sticking to my favorites. Today’s pick, MAC Impassioned.

I know ya’ll are probably tired of seeing my fuzzy sweaters on here lol. They’ve been my favorite this Winter and I can admit that I’ve probably worn them way too much and with everything, and I’m still trying to squeeze in a few more wears before it gets too warm. Sorry guys they are just so cute and cozy.

Anyway, Impassioned is a bright coral-pink with an amplified creme finish. It’s the perfect shade for Spring and Summer and will work well with any complexion. It glides on smooth and creamy and wears well for hours without drying out the lips. It does have a tendency to settle into creases though as with most amplified cremes. I have at least one dupe in my collection, Milani Flamingo Pose…

I love both equally and I’m glad to have a backup in my collection as it will definitely be a go to color this Spring.

Add a light smokey eye and/or winged liner with a similar blush and you’re all set. Easy Peasy.
