Whew! Golly, did this color throw me the first time I used it! Motif is another one of those unique shades from MAC because it appears to be a peachy-tan color in the pan. Upon application, you catch a glimpse of the pink duochrome that MAC snuck in there. It’s actually quite a beautiful shade, just surprising if you’re not expecting it! I found this to be very easy to apply, highly pigmented and easy to blend away when you want less color. Problem is, do I put it into my pink pans or my neutral pans?! Ha!
