MAC Great Beyond Mineralize Eyeshadow ($21.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a cool-toned mix of plum, purple, and lavender. The plum is on the warmer side, but the other shades are neutral to definitely cool-toned. I thought these shades felt a lot less powdery than the other eyeshadows in the collection, but they had similar issues when worn–six hours or less of decent wear, not fully pigmented even when applied with a dampened brush. I feel like this collection isn’t a step forward in the Mineralize formula but a real regression.

Great Beyond #1 is described as a “dusky plum.” It’s a muted, plummy-brown with a frosted finish. It was semi-sheer when applied dry, semi-opaque when applied with a dampened brush. It was slightly powdery but was smoother than other shades in this collection. See comparison swatches.

Great Beyond #2 is described as a “soft mauve violet.” It’s a light-medium, neutral-to-warm-toned lavender purple with a frosted sheen. It was sheer when applied dry, and then the color payoff was semi-sheer when applied with a dampened brush. It wasn’t dry, but it was somewhat powdery and didn’t bind well together. I found I needed to really wet the brush to get it to apply with any visible color to the lid. I noticed this one was faster to fade as well. See comparison swatches.

Great Beyond #3 is described as a “icy white lilac.” It’s a cool-toned, pinky-lavender with a frosted finish. It had a softer, denser consistency that was a little powdery but not dry. Applied dry, it was sheer, and then applied with a dampened brush, it was more pigmented and smoother–more semi-opaque. See comparison swatches.

Great Beyond #4 is described as a “deep blue violet.” It’s a medium-dark, muted cool-toned dusty purple with a pearly sheen and subtle shimmer. It was very sheer when applied dry, and it did amp up when applied with a dampened brush, but it wasn’t as smooth. It took some layering to get decent, even color with this shade. It also faded faster than the other shades. See comparison swatches.
