MAC Smoky Mauve Extra Dimension Eyeshadow ($21.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “mid-tone cool mauve.” It’s a plummy mauve with a frosted finish. MAC Daylight is lighter. Jasmine Carpet is pinker. Girogio Armani #27 is a touch darker. MAC Universal Appeal has more plum in it. Tarina Tarantino Fantastical #1 is cooler-toned.

Of the six, this was my favorite, because it applied the best–it was so, so smooth and had only a smidgen of dryness. It was soft without being powdery, and it melted against the skin when applied. The dry application is quite pigmented, and the damp application just made the finish slightly more metallic, but they were about the same either way. Smoky Mauve had the best texture, as the product seemed to bind with itself better, which helped to create that smoother finish. It lasted seven hours without fading or creasing (and it’s only designed to last for six).
