It seems as if summer is finally well and truly here as we’ve had some lovely weather over here and according to my iPhone it’s supposed to stay that way. I only have one exam left to take before I head off to Spain in a few days, so it’s really starting to feel like actual summer to me. Now we all change the clothes we wear in regards to seasons and I tend to do the same with my lipsticks. There are definitely some I wear all year around but others only come out a certain time of the year.
One of my absolute favorites for summer is Mac’s Impassioned. I think it’s one of the most gorgeous lipsticks I own, however, I’m also aware that this one is not quite for everyone. Impassioned is just the most bright, vibrant, loud almost neon like pink. Now I’m really into bold and unique colors but if you barely stray away from neutrals this is definitely not the one for you.
I absolutely adore Impassioned because I find it to be such a fun color. But it is a very in your face kind of pink and it definitely almost seems to scream ‘Look at me!’ Nonetheless this is one of my favorites for summer because if you can’t wear such a fun color in summer, when can you? Besides it just remind me of sunshine and the ocean and watermelon for some reason.
Impassioned comes in an Amplified formula so it is incredibly pigmented. But it also feels quite nice on the lips at it is relatively creamy and not drying at all. I definitely tend to wear a lot less make up in summer and one of my favorite looks is a really simply eye make up so maybe either just mascara or mascara and a little bit of eyeshadow (usually and bronzy shade) paired with a really bright and fun lip color. Obviously Impassioned is perfect for that. I feel like it’s one of those lipsticks that really kind of brighten up my complexion and really add to that summer vibe.
So if you’re into pink or just fun and vibrant colors and don’t shy away from bold lipsticks you need this in your life! Seriously need this! As always I have some swatches for you and I took some pictures (sorry they’re not the best!) of how it looks on my lips. But do bare in mind that the pictures don’t completely give justice to the color because it’s even brighter and louder in real life. Oh and please don’t mind my weirdly colored arm because my fake tan is peeling off and I know I really need to take care of sorting this out.
So this is today’s post on one of my favorite lipsticks for summer!
What are some of yours? Are you into bold colors and do you play it safe and stick to your neutrals?
Much love and enjoy the rest of your weekend!
