MAC Embrace Me Lipstick

MAC Embrace Me Lipstick ($15.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as “bright fuchsia cream.” It’s a medium-dark fuchsia pink with blue undertones and a satiny finish (almost like a matte with a hint shimmer). There are a lot of shades that are similar to this–and unsurprisingly, MAC makes most of them, but Maybelline Fuchsia Flash is just a touch less blue-based and has a glossier finish but is otherwise very similar. MAC Pink Pigeon is a touch darker. MAC Daddy’s Little Girl is less bright, slightly more magenta. MAC Candy Yum Yum is brighter, cooler-toned. MAC Dear Diary is a touch bluer-based. MAC Quick Sizzle is darker, pinker.

MAC Ablaze Nail Lacquer ($16.00 for 0.34 fl. oz.) is described as a “bright orange cream.” It’s a brightened, medium-dark orange-red with a cream finish.

Essie Meet Me at Sunset is redder. Essie Braziliant is similar but has shimmer.
