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, $12.00) 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). Inglot #454 (P, $6.00) is more shimmery, lighter, warmer (85% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty The Enigma #3 (P, ) is darker, warmer (85% similar). theBalm Surf's Up (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). MAC Just Breathe #2 (LE, $21.00) is cooler (85% similar). MAC Uninhibited #2 (LE, $21.00) is darker, cooler (80% similar). Guerlain Two Stylish #1 (P, ) is lighter, warmer (80% similar). Milani Bella Gray (10) (P, $4.49) is darker, cooler (80% similar). Burberry Nickel (304) (P, $29.00) is less shimmery, darker, cooler (80% similar).

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).
