I got my MAC Amplified Lipstick in Impassioned from the Sugar Sweet Collection a while back. The colour really caught my eye because it was a very unconventional red or fuchsia. It really isn't red, neither is it entirely fuchsia.
On the website, this colour is described as an Amped-up fuchsia (Amplified Creme).
MAC Amplified Lipstick in Impassioned.
As for the texture of the lipstick, it is in amplified formula so the colour is very opaque and this colour just screams attention. The down side about this formula is that it really isn't good for chapped lips. I had slightly dry lips but this lipstick just cracks my lips up after half an hour of wearing it. My tip would be to use a thin layer of Vaseline under your lipstick to moisturise the lips before applying the lipstick or, you can try layering a lot of Vaseline (alternative:lipbalm) for 5 minutes and wiping it all of before appplying the lipstick.
Estee Lauder Lipsgloss in Fresh Berry.
Fresh Berry is a sheer tint of red gloss. It has no shimmers or sparkles making it a very good gloss to use on red lipsticks. This is because with red lipsticks, you wanna stay as matte as possible, minimizing glitter or sparkles that might look OTT. I love this lipgloss for events or dinners.
