MAC Full Orbit Mineralize Eyeshadow Quad ($46.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a subdued mix of taupes and pewters–it’s an interesting set of shades, though two of them are fairly similar to each other in practice, so more contrast would have been great between the two darker shades in the palette. It is one of three limited edition quads releasing with Future MAC collection, which launches online on March 31st.

Full Orbit #1 is a light pewter with a mostly matte finish. It had good color payoff both dry and damp, though it was definitely more opaque applied damp. The eyeshadow lasted for seven hours on me both wet and dry. The texture was soft, blendable, and easy to work with. Buxom Designer or Die (P, $0.05) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). MAC Camel Coat (P, $18.50) is darker, cooler (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Full Orbit #2 is a muted, medium dirty gray with subtle, cool undertones and a soft, frosted finish. It had semi-sheer color payoff dry and lasted for six hours before fading. It had good pigmentation applied damp, and the wear time was closer to seven and a half hours. The texture was a little dusty/dry to work with, so damp application helped a lot. Chanel Tisse Smoky #3 (P) is darker, cooler (85% similar). MAC Just Breathe #2 (LE, $21.00) is cooler (85% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty The Enigma #3 (P) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Inglot #454 (P, $6.00) is more shimmery, lighter, warmer (85% similar). theBalm Surf's Up (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). Guerlain Two Stylish #1 (P) is lighter, warmer (80% similar). Burberry Nickel (304) (P, $29.00) is less shimmery, darker, cooler (80% similar). MAC Uninhibited #2 (LE, $21.00) is darker, cooler (80% similar). Milani Bella Gray (10) (P, $4.49) is darker, cooler (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Full Orbit #3 is a medium-dark pewter with warm, olive undertones and a frosted sheen. It had sheer coverage applied dry, which lasted for six hours before fading on me. When I applied the color with a damp brush, it was opaque but still a little dusty, though it wore for seven hours. Tarte Grind (LE, $14.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). MAC Modern Pewter (LE, $20.00) is warmer (90% similar). Urban Decay Pistol (P, $19.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Charlotte Tilbury The Huntress (LE) is darker, warmer (90% similar). L'Oreal Gilded Envy (755) (P, $7.99) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Stila Substance (P) is warmer (85% similar). MAC Antique Diamond (P, $18.50) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Hello Kitty Cookie (LE) is lighter, warmer (80% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty The Enigma #3 (P) is lighter, cooler (80% similar).

Full Orbit #4 is a muted, dark taupe with warm undertones and a frosted sheen. It had sheer pigmentation when applied dry, and it started to fade after six hours. It applied with mostly opaque coverage with a damp brush, and the wear time improved to seven hours. Tarte Grind (LE, $14.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty The Free Spirit No. 9 (LE) is lighter (90% similar). L'Oreal Gilded Envy (755) (P, $7.99) is more shimmery, warmer (90% similar).
