MAC Dare to Bare is a moderately warm-toned, light pink with a metallic finish. It is a limited edition eyeshadow that retails for $21.00 and contains 0.06 oz.
Dare to Bare is described as a "light cream with gold pearl." It's a pale pink with a hint of lavender and a frosted, slightly metallic finish. This shade was slightly powdery, but it seemed to stick to itself fairly well. It was one of the more pigmented shades of the six. It was semi-sheer applied dry and prone to sheering out if you applied it to the lid dry, but applied damp, it went on very nicely and with full color coverage. MAC Pastelluxe #3 is sheerer. Urban Decay SWF is darker. MAC Seedy Pearl is cooler-toned. MAC Love Power is darker, cream product. MAC Good Fortune is more metallic, cream. Chanel Harmonie du Soir #4 is similar. bareMinerals Glitterati is more golden. Shades like MAC Joy & Laughter #1 and MAC Young Venus seemed similar initially but pulled too purple. See comparison swatches.
The Mineralize Eyeshadow formula is supposed to have "low-to-medium coverage" when applied dry and "more intense coverage and color" when used wet. Most shades have color payoff that is true to the brand's description: semi-sheer to semi-opaque when used dry and semi-opaque to opaque when used with a dampened brush. I tend to find that they apply more smoothly and evenly with a more metallic finish with a dampened brush as well. Some shades can be a little too dry or dusty and do not apply as well with a dry brush. The wear is typically a bit less than average on me--six to seven hours.
