Maybelline Nude Embrace is a very warm-toned, light-medium peach with a satin finish. It is a permanent lipstick that retails for $7.99 and contains 0.15 oz.
Maybelline Nude Embrace Color Sensational Creamy Matte Lip Color ($7.99 for 0.15 oz.) is a light-medium beige with strong, warm brown tones and a satin finish. It had good color payoff with a creamy consistency, so there was no drag when applied, but the color migrated into lip lines during initial application. Despite trying to smooth the color out of the lines, as it wore on, the color kept gravitating towards the lip lines. It wore for four and a half hours in all and was neither drying nor hydrating. ColourPop Precocious (LE, $5.00) is lighter. MAC Naturally Transformed (P, $16.00) is darker. MAC Sensual Sparks (LE, $16.00) is darker. Too Faced Melted Nude (P, $21.00) is brighter, warmer. NARS Biscayne Park (P, $25.00) is darker. Givenchy Beige Mousseline (101) (P, $36.00) is darker, cooler. MAC Wholesome (LE, $16.00) is darker. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.
