MAC Impassioned vs Peripera Rouge Pang After Midnight
Dear Ladies and Jellyspoons
I was recently psychologically manipulated to enter a Clio store because they had posters everywhere that read: SALE UP TO 50%. You know I’m not the only one with this problem hahahah ;) Well I didn’t want to go wild so I just bought one lipstick from Peripera. I originally wanted another one of their matte lip crayons, but I was told that they are discontinued and that a new line called Rouge Pang has taken its place. I wasn’t happy about it at all, but I thought I’d rather give it a try than not. I ended up getting one in a pinky red colour called After Midnight (RD03 어쩌한시).
Of course, the first thing I did when I got home is compare it to MAC Impassioned, since I could tell that it might be a potential dupe. Impassioned is another cult favourite and bestseller by MAC (I tend to gravitate towards cult favourites for some reason). It’s a beautiful pink with coral undertones and it’s again one of those universal lipsticks that suit everyone. It comes in the much loved amplified finish, which is not too creamy, not too drying and long lasting with brilliant colour pay off.
Here they are swatched on my arm:
Peripera After Midnight is a tad darker than MAC Impassioned. After Midnight is also a little less creamier in texture.
Here are the lip swatches:
Get the dupe Peripera After Midnight here.
I would give Peripera After Midnight 3.5 stars, because of the difference in colour and texture, but in saying this, the difference is so unnoticeable from a distance that I’d recommend saving and getting the Peripera one instead.
That’s it from me, with lots of love
