MAC Embrace Me Lip Pencil

MAC Embrace Me Lip Pencil ($15.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “vivid pinkish fuchsia.” It’s a bold, bright fuchsia pink with a matte finish and blue undertones. I couldn’t think of a dupe for this, but if you have any ideas, I’d love to hear from you!  This shade was also launched twice previously–first in 2011 with Tour de Fabulous and then re-released with MAC for Beth Ditto.

MAC Ablaze Lip Pencil

MAC Ablaze Lip Pencil ($15.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “bright apricot.” More like a medium-dark orange with red undertones and a matte finish–can’t say I’ve seen an apricot quite this color before! MAC Temperature Rising is brighter, more orange. MAC Entertain Me is more orange. MAC Lasting Sensation is lighter–the difference is more apparent when worn. MAC What a Blast is more orange. MAC Redd is redder, slightly darker. MAC Throw Me a Line is a bit redder.

MAC Heroine Lip Pencil

MAC Heroine Lip Pencil ($15.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “bright purple.” It’s a magenta purple with a matte finish. I’m not as familiar with lip pencils as I am with other lip products. I don’t have it, but from what I remember, MAC Magenta should be somewhat similar–perhaps a bit purpler, rather than as red as Heroine.  If you know of any potential dupes, feel free to sound off in the comments!

MAC Marilyn Monroe Lip Pencils

MAC Marilyn Monroe Lip Pencils ($16.50 for 0.05 oz.) sees the promotion of three permanent shades: Beet (vivid reddish-pink), Cherry (vivid bright bluish-red), and Redd (clearly red). They come in glossy black boxes and have a glossy black exterior on the actual pencil, as compared to the typical matte black packaging for both the box and pencil. MAC is charging more for this difference–these three shades can be purchased for $15.00 each normally, because of the glossy packaging, MAC is charging $16.50 each for these.
