A Passionate Duo! MAC Impassioned Lipstick and Lipglass


After I got sick with the flu recently I took a break from wearing makeup for a while. I just didn’t have the energy to get dressed up and had lost my passion for makeup until I remembered I had these two bright and cheerful lippies to try. MAC’s impassioned lipstick and lipglass are both bright pinks perfect for lifting moods. If you want full on colour with a sheen, try the lipstick and if you want glossy lips or prefer the easy of the doe foot wand, try the lipglass. Both will give you a nice opaque colour depending on how much you apply. MAC Impassioned lipstick is part of the permanent collection! The lipglass and nail polish rounded out the MAC Impassioned Fashion set. 
Wearing MAC Impassioned Lipglass

 
Product Packaging: The lipglass come in a hard plastic tube with black screw type cover with the standard doe foot applicator wand. The tube contains 4.8g of product. The lipstick is the standard black bullet tube with 3g of product. 

Product Colours: Both products are bright pinks than lean towards looking fuchsia (but not as Fuschia as say MAC’s Girl About Town). The lipstick colour is more vibrant than that of the lipglass. 

Wearing MAC Impassioned Lipstick

Product Performance: The lipglass has a thicker consistency than a regular lipgloss and so wears a bit longer for me on the lips (about 3-4 hours). Of course it comes off once you eat or drink. You can get opaque colour coverage with the lipglass.
The lipstick has an amplified crème finish and gives opaque colour just like the lipglass. It glides on smoothly onto the lips. It lasts for me about 5-6 hours, just a bit longer than the lipglass. I did notice my lips got stained after wearing this lipstick!
Both products have the typical MAC vanilla scent. 

Product Flexibility: Pair the lipstick and lipglass together for an instant colour boost with shine. The colour becomes more intense and there is no need to worry about streaking or balling up of the two products together. They work really well together. I prefer to wear them together than on their own.

Product Availability & Price: Both lip products are the same price, $130TT (West Mall or Gulf City) or US$14.50 (maccosmetics.com). 

Are you Impassionate? How would you wear these two; on their own or together?
Happy Impassioned!

Coffee Date Night with Bae

There are some simple pleasures in life that I enjoy. Coffee is one of them and a good lipgloss. Today I can have both of them together while we go for a date with bae! Sacha Cosmetics has blown me away with their new intense lipshine glosses and awesome names. I love when companies try to just be real with their customers even in these small details. 

Let’s Go to Work with MAC Melba Blush

My work place is pretty open to makeup but I would definitely prefer to keep a simple office type look while there and maybe on casual Fridays for work and on the weekends have a separate look. What I realized when scanning though my makeup stash was that most of my blushes were way too loud for the office so what better excuse to use to hop down to my favourite MAC store. :)
Now just to mention it, don’t try attempting to get quick service on a Friday or Saturday at the MAC store. It’s usually super busy. The MAC makeup artists are always so helpful though but you may require a bit of patience. But patience I had that day which led me to my beloved Melba blush.  I just needed the colour to suit my NC 45 skintone, be a powder blush for simple application and be matte, not shimmery. We did try out Fleur Power first, which is a soft pinky coral colour but I still felt it was a tad too bright. Melba however was a soft, coral peach colour and look really great on me when she applied with h…

Hot Milk Sponge Cake with Fresh Fruit & Coconut

In today's yummy post we are doing an easy sponge cake (no creaming of butter and sugar involved). Instead of torting this cake we are using two loaf pans to give us our two layers, which we will pull together with vanilla buttercream. I love the rectangular look of this cake rather than the traditional round or square but more importantly the flavors of the toasted coconut on the sides and fresh fruit on top makes for a mouth watering dessert.
