MAC Imaginary Pro Longwear Paint Pot ($22.00 for 0.17 oz.) is described as a “deep blue plum shimmer.” It’s a deepened, muted, navy blue with fine navy blue and violet pearl. It had semi-opaque color payoff with a lightly creamy consistency, but it is really dense in the pot. The denser texture made it less blendable on the skin; it was better as a defined area rather than used as a cream eyeshadow (so I preferred it as an eyeliner). The color lasted for twelve hours on me before starting fade (the formula has a stated wear time of 15 hours per MAC’s site). Bobbi Brown Blue Onyx (LE) is more shimmery (95% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Night Sky (Cream) (LE, $42.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Urban Decay Goddess (LE, $18.00) is more shimmery, lighter, warmer (90% similar). NARS Ubangi (P, $25.00) is more shimmery, darker, glossier (90% similar). Too Faced De La Mer (P, $16.00) is darker (90% similar). Giorgio Armani Minuit (02) (P, $38.00) is brighter (90% similar). MAC Shop & Drop (LE, $16.00) is darker (90% similar). Givenchy Bleu Soie (4) (P, $23.00) is brighter (90% similar). Urban Decay Heroine (LE, $18.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). bareMinerals Shaken Not Stirred (P) is darker (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
