MAC Amplified Creme Lipstick "Impassioned" [Review+Swatch]

MAC, a much raved brand is a centre of attention among most of the ladies worldwide. Being one of the ladies, it was on my wishlist forever. Especially lipsticks and foundations. I had to get it to know why it is raved SO much. After going through A LOT of swatches and reviews, bought my first ever MAC lipstick "Impassioned".

MAC Impassioned - Swatches
My Experience:
MAC lipsticks come in 8 different finishes; Amplified Creme being one of them. Impassioned is a shade of an Amplified Creme finish line. To describe it, amplified creme is a creamy+satin finish lipstick. Basically, they are full coverage lipsticks, with creamy soft texture. 

My description about the shade Impassioned would be, a bright neon-ish pink with a tint of coral in it. It is a shade that will brighten up your face. In my opinion, it will suit every skin tone. On my lips, it stays put 4 to 5 hours. Let me tell you, it stains your lips. I like stained lips, because it looks natural sometimes. As it is a bright shade, I had the idea of staining and staying power. The texture of the lipstick is soft and creamy, and is smooth on the application; feels like a butter on the lips. It is highly pigmented and give an opaque coverage lipstick, with an amazing color pay off in a single swipe.

What I LOVE about MAC lipsticks is, the scent of it. As soon as you open the lid, you can smell the sweet vanilla scent, which is absolutely divine. The packaging is the classic sleek black bullet packaging, which I adore. Castor oil and Jojoba oil being one of the ingredients of these lipsticks make it soft, creamy and moisturizing.

What I don't like about MAC lipsticks is, that you can't actually tell the shade from the top if many MAC lipsticks are kept together. You have to take them out and search for all the shades.

I heard about MAC lipsticks being too soft and they melt in a hot weather that you need to keep them in the fridge. They definitely are soft enough to melt and can melt if kept in a very hot place, but it didn't melt in my makeup drawer, even in the past 3 VERY hot days. 

Overall, I now know why MAC lipsticks are raved. I know it is on the expensive side, as it is a high end brand, but worth having in your makeup stash; at least one of them. I am saving up to buy some more colors.

  • Soft, creamy and buttery in texture and application.
  • Long lasting.
  • Opaque coverage on a single swipe.
  • Lead free.
  • Has a sweet vanilla scent.
  • HUGE range of colors and finish to select from.
  • For some it might be pricey, but at the same time it's worth it.
  • No color swatch on the top or at the bottom.

I got mine from Ayesha's Blog sale for PKR 2300.
You can now get Original MAC products, here in Pakistan from MAC Addict page on Facebook. I got another MAC lipstick from MAC Addict for PKR 1900

I'm a person who loves experimenting things with my makeup and hair. When it comes to changing the color, I can try the bold colors to subtle ones. Lately, I've been obsessed with Ombre and full brown hair color. I prefer hair dying my hair at home and that's why I love and prefer shampoo dyes. If you are new, and you are changing hair color at home, it's the easiest way. All you have to do is mix all the contents in a bottle, shake well and start applying. Yes, easy as it sounds.

[Review] Krylon TV Paint Stick - Orange

Makeup not only enhances your features, but also hides your flaws too!
Hiding my dark circles and finding the RIGHT concealer for the under eye circles has always been a BIG task for me. I have tried quite a few concealers, from different brands; none of them matched or could hide my dark circles properly. Until I came across orange corrector by Krylon.
