Mauvelous is a pale, softened mauve with coppery-red micro-glitter. It had semi-opaque color payoff but there was definitely a sheerness present. The glitter also was prone to fall out both during wear as well as during application. MAC Neo Nebula (LE, $21.00) is darker, less glittery. MAC Daylight (LE, $21.00) is a touch darker. Urban Decay Provocateur is very, very similar. Giorgio Armani #29 is less glittery. See comparison swatches.
