(borrowed from MAC website)
This MAC lipstick is one of the most coveted shades for this year because of it's bright pink-coral tinge that suits pantone tangerine. And as I have observed, I've seen so many pink-coral shades even in runways. MAC Impassioned has an a Amplified finish (my favorite finish) so you definitely have no problems with the pigmentation. Again, it is bold but I would say that this one is more wearable than Morange and even bright fuchsia lipsticks. Though it's not a color for all seasons, it's still a good addition to one's kit. I've been a fan of bold lipsticks ever since and thankfully, these colors compliment my tan skin.
It looks orange cause of the sun light
I have been searching for a pink coral lipstick for so long and this baby definitely answered my wish. I had this purchased all the way from the USA when our vocal coach went there for her sister's wedding. Yes, it is locally available but we all know that MAC is cheaper there.

2. Staying power is great
3. Since this has Amplified finish, it glides easily during application
4. True to the color on the tube
5. Bright and Bold
6. Doesn't dry my lips
7. Affordable for the quality ($14.50 in the US/P995 here in PH)
8. Permanent line for MAC
1. Not as versatile because of it's brightness and color.
Overall: 4.75 out of 5

I'm thinking of buying MAC Rebel and Spice lipsticks (available only online). What do you think?
