Impassioned..

Mac describes this lipstick shade as "Amped-up fuchsia".

I describe it as a neon pink toned coral with a slight milky tinge to it. In certain lights it looks brighter and more vivid than it actually is, at times it has a red tone to it and at times it looks more pink. It's an interesting shade that oozes attention.

The finish is an Amplified Creme.


Here's a swatch..


I wore it today and almost everyone complimented me on it, I on the other hand felt like I needed to cover my mouth as it just felt TOO bright. I do like it on me, it's just that I'm not used to it..It's the perfect shade to update your collection with if you are into bright lips for summer.


Here's what I am wearing today:

FACE:
Mac Face & Body foundation (C3) set with Bare Minerals (Medium beige)
CONCEALER: Mac studio finish (NC30) and YSL touche eclat
CHEEKS: Dior matte bronzer shade 02
EYES: Mac "Brule" e/s on the entire lid, Mac 'Femme Fi" to highlight. L'oreal Voluminous mascara,
LIPS: Mac "Impassioned" lipstick


How do you feel about "Impassioned"?

look so bright, but it really is a pretty color. i swatched it the other day and thought it was gorgeous--but i too would constantly worry about how bright it looked :)

Devea said...

I have the MUFE lippie in 37 which is almost the same. I do the same thing when I wear it, I feel so self concious! You look beautiful though! xo

Lucy - Beauty and the Blogger said...

I think that's really pretty on you, I like it :-)

Muhsine said...

@Thatgirl I can't believe I wore it out - to work! Everyone loved it tho, well they said they did maybe they didn't haha :) It's ok, it's just a comfort thing when you are used to natural shades suddenly wearing brights is overwhelming but it's normal, I know people who wear nothing but brights. :)

Bethany said...

It looks SO great on you! I love how you kept the eyes subtle too. I hope I will be able to pull it off as well as you do!

I think it looks gorgeous on yoU! It really makes me want it - I keep swatching but not buying but it looks absolutely stunning on you x x x

littlelucy said...

I would personally never wear a lip colour like that but it looks stunning on you! I say if you don't mind people staring at your lips, then go for it!

MakeUpTreasurebox said...

Try rebel by mac. It's a deeper fuschia and much more wearable during the day.

Natalie said...

I think I may need to pick this up. I've been seeing so many posts about it lately and I can't fight the urge anymore. lol

GO GIRL !!!

In the last few years, Bright lipsticks have somehow become so outrageous and almost taboo, I don't know why...
We're now entering a new chapter thanks to Nicki minaj, lady gaga (etc...), and girls like you Muhsine who DARE!!!

Andee Layne said...

Hollywood said...

I love Impassioned it looks totally different on me though that's funny.
You are so pretty by the way :)

Victoria said...

it's a beautiful color! do you ever wear primer on your face or eyes?

Widdlesh said...

I love super bright gorgeous lip colors (like OCC's Anime), but I agree, wearing it makes me feel like covering my mouth too! Maybe you could put some concealer on your lips to help tone the color down a little?

salut! sophie said...

This is such a gorgeous shade on your, and so perfect for this season's neon trend! I'd love to be brave enough to rock this shade, but I'm so used to soft pastel lipsticks.

sonidlo said...

Looks amazing on you!

♥ Sarah ♥ said...

That is such a beautiful shade on you!! I may have to pick that one up next time as you're right, it would look great for Spring/Summer. Would you say that it is similar to the Wonderwoman Spitfire Lipstick?

Summer Loren said...

That colour looks gorgeous on you - I'm tempted to see if I could pull it off but it might just be a bit too bright against my pale skin! Looks amazing with your skin tone though - very jealous! x

THE DIVINITUS said...

I really like it. Do you have any recomendation for a lip liner in this particular color?
