Aspire is a warm, orange-tinted yellow–less sunshine yellow, because of the underlying orange tint. It has a frosted finish with high sheen and shimmer. The color is reminiscent of Urban Decay Blunt, which is a little yellower. It’s not as yellow (nor does it have the pink duochrome) of MAC Motif or as dark as MAC Goldmine. It’s less gold compared to Milani Drenched in Gold.
