As someone who loves makeup, and regularly blogs about all things beauty related; it had gotten to the point where it was kind of embarrassing that I’d never tried a MAC lipstick. So why hadn’t I until now? It’s hard to say really, because I’ve been lusting after them for the longest time! No, a more expensive brand does not automatically mean better, at all. But being a blogger with a passion for a great lipstick and trying out new makeup products, does mean MAC’s much coveted lipstick range has been on my hit list for a while.
I think a big part of the reason might just be the makeup counters, they really do intimidate me! I prefer to browse by myself, and really ponder which shade I’d like to go for. But at the MAC counters this is basically impossible. So this left me online, googling swatches constantly and making a list of shades I was determined to purchase online come payday. But I’d always forget, or something more important would come up. So it just never happened.
Until recently that is. I’d entered Victoria’s blog giveaway for a MAC lipstick of choice on whim; I didn’t think I’d ever win! The best thing about it is Victoria has fast become one of my favourite bloggers/tweeters/friends. She’s just like having a twin, we share so many of the same interests. Anyway, after much deliberation I decided I wanted a vibrant pink shade with a hint of red. I have so many reds already, and I love pink! It’s my favourite colour, but I’m always worried I don’t suit it. So a reddish pink seemed perfect. And this is why I went for Impassioned.
From the moment I applied it, I knew it was a winner for me. All the power and strong pigment of a matte, but with the moisture, softness and shine the amplified creme range is known for. I found it lasted me around 4 hours before it needed touching up, and I was eating and drinking in that time. I absolutely love this lipstick. It kind of feels like it’s going to be the start of a collection, and definitely a great lipstick for Summer!
