Give Me Life is a medium brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture felt smooth to the touch, but it was quite dry and stiff in the pan, which made it hard to apply, blend out, and build up coverage. I had to scrape away at the top layer in order to get product to show up for swatching purposes. I don't know what MAC has been doing to their Bronzing Powders lately, but I know they can do better with respect to texture! The color lasted for seven and a half hours on me.
