If you want a comparison of both the lipsticks, then Party Parrot is a matte neon pink (though it looks to have a bit of coral as well) and some might even find it too bright to carry off. If you fall in that category, then Passionate is perfect. It's a toned down version of Party Parrot, more wearable, creamy, almost neon coral pink, and can be carried off by all skin types. On my lips, it comes across as more of pink than coral but I'm fine with it. When wearing this, go easy on the rest of your makeup though. You don't want people shielding themselves from your face!

The texture is really smooth and creamy and the lipstick just glides over the lips effortlessly. It's very light and does not feel heavy on the lips. I love the pigmentation of this lipstick. One swipe is enough to cover pigmented lips and one swipe is actually all you need to pack in the punch. The finish is creamy, glossy and very moisturising. I wear it as it is, no balm or gloss and my lips feel super hydrated and soft. I get around 4-5 hrs of wear time and there's a soft, pink stain left on the lips after fading, much lighter than the stain left behind by the Velvet Mattes. Because of how creamy it it is, there is a bit of transfer which to me is the only drawback of the lipstick.

- Applies evenly
- Glossy finish
- Decent wear time of 4-5 hrs
