I am so excited to write a post for this lipstick because I feel like it's a long time coming! I have been lusting for MAC Lipstick in Party Parrot ever since the Iris Apfel Collection last year but I sadly missed out on it, so when it was re-promoted in the Strength Collection I knew I had to snatch it right away.
MAC Party Parrot is officially described as a "bright red pink" with a matte finish. Looking at the lipstick tube itself and the swatch below, this shade looks like a neon and very intense.
Since Party Parrot and Impassioned are always touted as dupes I thought I'd do a comparison of the two lipsticks. The one on the left is Party Parrot and the one on the right is Impassioned. From the swatches below, any difference is hardly noticeable except for the finish. Party Parrot is a matte finish while Impassioned is an amplified creme (somewhat glossy) finish. Also, Party Parrot is a true neon while Impassioned is almost a neon.
