Hello my beauties! I haven't done one of these Tried and True installment in ages it seems. And that is not due to lack of items I've been loving for a long time. It's more due to my crazy work schedule and not having enough time to blog. I've gotten really overwhlmed yet again and we're still under staffed at work.

Anyway, for today's Tried and True, I present you MAC Impassioned l/s:
1-26/4/

Impassioned has been part of my makeup stash for about 2 years now and it still is one of the most unique shade in my large lipstick collection. Impassioned is a creamy and super pigmented warm fuchsia. It doesn't quite get to coral or red but it's a bold pink and definitely on the neon side. It applies effortlessly and lasts 5-6 hours on my lips. Impassioned is an attention grabing lipstick so don't go for it if you are a wallflower. As with all bold lipsticks, I recommend you wear Impassioned with a liner. My go to is MAC Trimmed to Pink l/l which was an LE. But it's just a simple medium pink shade so you sure to find dupes for it. Check out the swatch (on NW20-25 arm):

    I actually just B2M'd for Impassioned this past weekend.

    I love the colour, but I haven't worn it out yet. I'm trying to come up with an eyeshadow look that would compliment it nicely, I'm thinking of a pinky-neutral. Idk, lmao.

    I also am having trouble finding an inexpensive l/l to go with it. :/

    i just bought this lippie..haven't used it yet but now I can not wait! it looks beautiful on u!

  4. Shadowy Lady Says:

    Ev - Def give it a try. It will look gorge on u :)

    Arezu - Neutrals are a great way to go. I also like this with taupes or gray shades. I like contrast in my makeup though. For lip liners, I recommend looking at Annabelle. They have great range of colours for affordable price.

    Jess - thank u. I bet u will love this lipstick too :)
