This product is GOOD, but not GREAT. I found it a challenge to get an even coverage, and felt slightly sticky on the lips. If you don’t mind fiddling with the gloss or the stickiness then it’s alright. I enjoy wearing this over a lipstick (usually MAC Show Orchid or Girl About Town) to amp up the colour, and not have to worry about making a perfectly even coverage versus just applying the gloss alone. Good staying power, nice travel size. Not the best gloss I own, but good.
MAC Embrace Me Lipglass ($15.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is described as “bright fuchsia.” It’s a medium fuchsia-pink with fuchsia micro-shimmer–it is a redder fuchsia compared to the lipstick. MAC Girl About Town is darker. MAC Full Speed Ahead is less fuchsia, no shimmer. I didn’t feel like anything was all that similar.
