MAC Extra Silver Extra Dimension Eyeshadow ($21.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “true silver.” It’s a bright, metallic silver with neutral to neutral-warm undertones. Benefit Blingo is darker. Maybelline Silver Strike is a touch darker and more metallic. MAC Enlightening is cooler-toned. Tom Ford Emerald Lust is less metallic. MAC Misty is warmer.

I felt that the color payoff was the same both dry and damp, though when applied damp, the finish appeared smoother and more metallic, rather than frosted as it did when applied dry. There was also less fall out during application when one used a damp brush. The payoff is mostly opaque, and the formula pretty much is a buildable one from sheer to greater intensity, so it’s hard to say it isn’t pigmented as it’s supposed to be (so it’ll come down more to what you personally want). The texture is lightly dry–a smidgen powdery–but does apply smoothly, especially when pressed into the skin. I tested this shade yesterday, and it did lightly crease and fade after six hours of wear.
