Impassioned is an orange-coral with a cream finish, but in certain lighting it looks more light red with pink undertone, almost magenta. The color is gorgeous and I've gotten tons of compliments on it. The brush is not bad, I could cover my nail in just two strokes but the nail polish itself does not apply that smoothly as OPI nail polish would, but it does dried amazingly fast. I applied it with the YSL top/base No 30 coat and two coats of polish and then YSL top/base coat No 30 again. The nail polish started chipping just two days after application, so I wasn't too impressed, even Rimmel's nail polish stay longer put.Given the price, I was very disappointed with its performance and this is going to be the last MAC nail polish I've purchased. Sorry MAC.
