Editor's Review

Impassioned is a bright, medium-dark pink-coral with warm undertones and a lightly creamy finish. It had opaque color coverage that applied evenly and smoothly. The consistency was lightly creamy with a lightweight feel on the lips that didn't slide around but didn't cling either. It wore well for five and a half hours and was a touch hydrating but not by much. MAC Postmodern (DC, $21.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Giacomo (P, $36.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Burberry Bright Crimson (P, $34.00) is lighter, brighter (95% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Lukas (LE, $36.00) is less glossy (95% similar). Estee Lauder Jealous (P, $32.00) is darker (95% similar). Estee Lauder Blossom Bright (P, $30.00) is warmer (95% similar).

Givenchy Magnolia Organza (301) (P, $36.00) is brighter (95% similar). NARS Greta (P, $34.00) is lighter, brighter, cooler (90% similar). NYX Angel (P, $6.00) is lighter (90% similar). Too Faced Melted Candy (P, $21.00) is glossier (95% similar). Maybelline Shocking Coral (DC, $7.99) is lighter, brighter, warmer (95% similar). MAC Flowerscope (LE, $19.00) is cooler, glossier (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Mia (LE, $36.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Tahiti Pink (P, $37.00) is darker (85% similar). YSL Rose Happening (403) (P, $36.00) is warmer, glossier (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Empire (P, $57.00) is more shimmery, warmer (90% similar).

This + a tan = summer. I love this lipstick, but it can emphasize lines on lips, at least for me. Leaves a stain which is hard to remove too. But a lovely color that is the right amount of brightness without stepping into the Candy Yum Yum area.
