Lipstick Challenge Day 1: MAC Impassioned

Well my dear readers, this is the first look from my lipstick challenge collection.

I've had MAC Impassioned for a little over a month and I would say it is my favourite lipstick of all time. That's right, it trumps my trusty nudes and soft pinks, this is THE colour that makes me look instantly dressed up no matter what I'm wearing and no matter what the rest of my makeup looks like.

The colour is described as amplified fuchsia but I can't really call it that. Depending on the light it changes from pink to coral to red.

And this is what it looks like on me. If you feel that these pics look familiar, I have used it as my profile pic for the last few days. But here it is in more detail.

I look totally airbrushed in the pic above, but trust me there was no airbrushing. I think my camera's setting using soft flash gave that effect. My skin is def not as smooth as it looks in the above pic. However the pic above shows the coral effect this lipstick can get depending on lighting. Click on the pics to enlarge.

Foundation: Maybelline dream liquid mousse in Nude
Concealer: Bourjois Healthy Mix in Light Radiance
Powder: MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Medium
Contour: Benefit Hoola
Blush: Illamasqua Lover

Lid: MAC e/s in Vex
Crease: MAC e/s in Satin Taupe
Eyeliner: UD Black in Zero, and random black eyeshadow smudged on top
Mascara: Benefit Bad Gal Lash
