Forget BS brightening skin care which never actually works, try a brightening lipstick? Yes, you heard me right! Seriously, this is fail-safe for me! Nothing cheers up my face more than a bright, sexy, fun lipstick and MAC Impassioned Lipstick fits the bill to the T.

This is easily my girl’s night out lipstick for this summer, I easily see it pairing well with all my dresses and wedge sandals. I can also see it’s imprints on the straws of my future margaritas. I’m already planning our future together & the future is bright – bright pink, that is!

Since it is an amplified cream finish – it is super pigmented, creamy, long-lasting – in short, lipstick perfection! It wears so comfortably and for hours and then settles into a super flattering stain.

What I absolutely love about it is the fact that it cheers up my face. It gives me the best sort of glow quite instantly. Even though it is bright and bold, it is also kind of romantic. And I like romantic ;)

Isn’t my complexion looking 10x more luminous? Ok, not fetching compliments, its not me, its the lipstick ;). I am wearing my new holy grail foundation for spring/summers – Make Up For Ever HD Foundation in 153. I find NARS Sheerglow to be too heavy for this point in year, but it is still my favorite for fall/winter. For Blush I am wearing Lancôme Blush Subtil in Cosmopolitan Pink, which comes from their new summer launch I’ll talk about in the coming weeks. I am also wearing one coat of anonymous mascara, which I am not allowed to talk about – no, I am serious!

One last thing before I part – I got new shoes that I am really proud of…I’m kind of obsessed with Cole Haan. I know, those shoes are probably for older women, but I am so obsessed. They are so chic and oh-so- comfortable.

You can get a better look here & oh, I also got these. Ok, I am done! I wanted to do OOTD with the dress I am wearing, but I can’t take decent enough pictures of myself wearing the dress. Hey, my arms are only, so long ;)

      It will suit you 100%. I think you were looking at other shades before, which run too yellow/dark/muddy in my opinion – 120 somethings. I really like 153 because it has the right amount of olive in it. I know it looks lighter than my neck, but it because of the shadow of my face in the bright lights that makes it look like it. It blends perfectly – you should definitely try it!! I’m really loving the satin finish of this foundation – perfect for summer!

    Cute flats! Did you get the pink ones???

    I love this combo of Impassioned and the Lancome blush on you! It’s so soft but also bright…so cheerful! Amplified Cremes are not my favorite, but I do need a new bright lipstick for summer. Not sure which yet!

    We are makeup soul maaaaaaates. I recently picked up impassioned and I’m so in love with it. I was totally surprised by how … different it looked on me than it had on other people (more coral and less blue hot pink) but I still love it.

      say what? I know – I saw temptalia’s pictures on the same lipstick today – hers looked very different than mine – although my lighting is BRIGHT and YELLOW – but still, it didn’t come off as bright hot pink as hers. Can’t wait to see how you rock this one ;)
