Quickie: MAC Amplified Cream Lipstick in Impassioned

MAC Impassioned

Here’s another quick review of a MAC lipstick! Impassioned is described as an “amped-up fuschia,” which also translates to “way outside of my comfort zone.” Notice the almost-pristine bullet?

MAC Amplified Cream - Impassioned - Swatch

I don’t think I’ve actually worn this out of the house before I was preparing this review, but for the sake of a good laugh, I did and this is what that looked like:

MAC - Impassioned - whole Face

It was not a good self-esteem day, so have mirror pictures!

Anyway. I think this would look best with a clean, fresh eye look or soft, brown neutrals. Impassioned is my only MAC lipstick with an “amplified cream” finish, so I can’t really compare it to anything else from that group. I’m ambivalent about it, which I guess means that I like it a bit better than creamsheens, which I dislike so much that I won’t buy anything more of if I can help it.

I think I’m warming up to pink lipsticks! I feel like I can’t wear anything too girly is all. However, I kind of do like how this one looks. What do you think?

MAC Cosmetics does not test on animals unless required by law.


  1. How does this compare to Girl About Town? That’s the only one I have from the Amplified line and I’m starting to think it’s too loud for my face lol. This one looks really great on you, though!

    • Oh, I don’t have that shade so I can’t really tell you! I sadly have a face that can’t take too loud colors either.

  2. I have this too (and have reviewed some time ago) is really bright! I like to pair it with MAC Bare Study paint pot on the eyes, and I find that I always almost blot it to tone down the drama, its more wearable to me that way I think. 🙂

  3. Not bad! The bright pop of pink/red on a neutral face is really eye catching. I think it looks good on you.

  4. It’s a nice change!! I too have trouble wearing fuchsia pink lipsticks. Someone always says… Masyado atang pink ang lipstick mo. Whatevs, I be rocking it.

  5. It looks fantastic against your skin! It’s not too pink, I agree with you that pink lipsticks can sometimes be a little too much :\
