MAC Silly Eyeshadow ($15.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “clean blue pink [with a frost finish].” It’s a light-medium pink with blue undertones and a mostly matte finish (there is no frost in sight). MAC Dynamic Duo #4 is a bit lighter (and so much sheerer/drier that they’re not easy to compare). Guerlain Boulevard du Montparnasse #3 is similar in color but frosted. MAC for Miss Piggy looks rather similar in the pan (but it had poorer quality, so they don’t look as much alike swatched). MAC Feather Pink is slightly lighter and has a satiny finish.

It had good color payoff that was mostly opaque applied. The texture had a very slight powderiness to it when I swatched it, but it seemed to be minimized when applied–but there was some excess powder kicked up in the pan, so be gentle with your brush to avoid waste. Silly was blendable, but it did have a tendency to sheer out somewhat when blended, so the best application method would be to pat it on, and then very lightly blend along the edges only as needed to maintain the intensity. When I tested it for wear, the eyeshadow lasted seven hours before starting to fade without a primer; nine hours with a primer.
