MAC Embrace Me Lipstick

EM4

MAC Embrace Me lipstick is described as “bright fuchsia cream”. This is from the recent Fashion Sets release, which originally I missed out on. When I was in Chicago, I wanted to pick up Candy Yum Yum, but it was sold out at the MAC store. The girl working said she had another bright pink lipstick in stock and that it was the last one: Embrace Me!

EMI can tell you right now that I have been wearing this A LOT and am crazy about it! This kind of pink works really well with my complexion.

This is a mostly matte lipstick with a hint of satin finish to it. It applies easily and evenly, which I like. It isn’t the most hydrating lipstick in the world, so I recommend using a balm before wearing it. I used MAC Prep + Prime and also like wearing this with Silly lip liner (also from Fashion Sets) for more staying power.

Embrace Me and Candy Yum Yum look similar in swatches, but in person the differences are more noticeable. CYY is much brighter and cooler in tone. Embrace Me is like CYY’s older, more mature sister, who is still fun, and also more wearable. 🙂 Maybelline Fuchsia Flash is glossier and more pink, but if you can’t Find Embrace Me, this is a good cross between it and CYY.

If you live near a counter or MAC store and want this shade, it might be worth popping in to see if they have any left in stock. You might be pleasantly surprised like I was! 🙂
