Head to Head: MAC Party Parrot vs. MAC Impassioned Lipstick

So I bought some new lipsticks. Yessiree. It was my birthday a few weeks ago, and I decided to gift myself via a MAC and Sephora haul. My MAC picks included Party Parrot, a bright red pink. I did my research online…or so I thought.

When I saw the lipstick in person, I was all a lady ga-ga. ;-) It is a beautiful colour. But there was something about it that reminded me of another lipstick. I dug through my collection and sure enough, there it was: MAC’s Impassioned, an all-time favourite. I then Googled both lipsticks and saw many, many comparisons of the two.

Party Parrot is matte, and I would say has more red and a bit deeper.

Impassioned is an Amplified Creme and has a bit more coral undertone to it. 

Do you need both? Probably not unless you’re a lipstick junkie like me. I love them both.

Who doesn’t love a bright lipstick? ;-)

      They are both fun colours. Much brighter in person than it looks online ;-)

      They are very similar. Differences are a bit more noticeable in person. I lurv both. ;-)

    Oh yay – so glad you compared them! I have and love Impassioned but and wasn’t sure whether to get Party Parrot (its so beautiful but similar) but seeing your side by side I can see that Party Parrot definitely has a place ready for it in my collection :)

      It is different enough Ingrid. ;-) It’s so pretty – I’ve been wearing it a lot lately.

    Impassioned was the first Mac lipstick I bought (due to your evil influence!!) I love it. Of course now I want this Parrot one too…

    I have a handful of things that I need to take to MAC to get recycled. I’ve been itching for a new super pink, so I’ll take a look at these!

    (MAC will exchange six empty MAC cosmetic containers/old products for a new tube of lipstick – it’s part of their recycling campaign!)
