NARS Impassioned is a slightly cool-toned, light-medium pink with a matte finish. It is a permanent blush that retails for $30.00 and contains 0.16 oz.
Impassioned is a muted, medium pink with neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-sheer color coverage that was buildable to medium coverage with two to three layers. This blush seemed like it would work better for fair complexions as it did not show up much on my light-medium skin tone. The texture was thin, slightly powdery, and seemed more reactive to any dampness on the skin (natural oils, still-drying foundation/primer, etc.) and would look splotchy and become hard to blend if the area wasn't dry or powdered. It wore well for seven and a half hours on me.
