MAC Embrace Me Eyeshadow ($15.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “soft pink [with a satin finish].” It’s a bold, deepened raspberry pink with a matte finish–it may be listed as a satin, but it read very matte when I applied it! MAC More Amour is more subdued, less pink. MAC Tease with Ease is cooler-toned, pinker, and satiny. MAC passionate is barely warmer–a little brighter.

Embrace Me had excellent pigmentation–it was rich, intense, and applied that way, too. The texture was soft, finely-milled, and easy to blend out on the lid. It didn’t have any dryness, and it didn’t kick up a ton of excess powder or look powdery on the lid. It was nicely balanced in regards to texture (not too dry, not too soft), and it is an example of when MAC’s matte formula can shine. This shade lasted eight full hours–both with and without primer–on the lid without fading or creasing, but I did notice it would stain the lid somewhat when worn without a primer; after nine hours, there was a smidgen of fading without a primer.
