Spring/summer means to me Bold lipcolor,the brighter the better! Bight pink is a perfect shade for this season..Some of my favorites from MAC are Impassioned,Moxie,Party Parrot,Lickable and Show Orchid. I already have some bright bold pink lipsticks in my lipstick collection but as Embrace me was a limited edition lipstick so I was not willing to miss it… Embrace Me lipstick came out along with a lippencil,nailpolish and eyeshadow in a spring collection called Fashion set ….all of them were from same color family.
Embrace me Lipstick is a blue undertoned bright fuchsia lipstick,MAC says it’s a full matte lipstick where I found its not ,it has little bit on sheen and tiny shimmer in it ,though those shimmers are not that much visible. I was 110% sure that I will not love this lipstick and I don’t like candy yum yum on me and I thought it would be very similar to candy yum yum but after swatching few times in different lights I found it is less brighter than candy yum yum. I still don’t love it like my other bold lipsticks but I liked it,I feel I don’t look good with this color but whatever it is im happy to have it in my collection.I loved the lippencil more than the lipstick though the lip pencil is little dry.

As it is so bright, so I recommend keeping the rest of your makeup pared down.I tend to go with little eyeliner( not the carbon black liner)some mascara, and a bit of luminizer on my cheekbones, so the focus is on my lips. I usually apply lipcolor with a lip brush, blot the color a little bit then apply from the tube, blot, apply from the tube one more time and smudge with finger, and am all set to go. I don’t always lippencil but when it comes to bold lipcolor I have to use liner first for long lasting lipcolor.I have taken this picture right after I got it and immediately used it so I dint use lip pencil and I had problem with it bleeding after few mins (30-40 mins).The staying power is not as good as the other lipsticks from this collection,I think this lipstick has least staying power that other lipsticks but it lasts through at least two glass of juice! And very good thing is, Blue undertones makes my teeth more white but it makes me little dark :P:P:P
I know all lipsticks from this collection are already sold out everywhere but if you can manage then take it….dont miss any limited edition products because you never know when you are falling in love for limited items:D
Have you tried any of the lipsticks from MAC fashion set 2013 collection?
Let me know your thoughts..
