MAC Breaking Ground Cream Colour Base ($21.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a "light iridescent mauve." It's a cool-toned, medium-dark taupe with a purple/gray leaning. It had a more frosted finish, which applied semi-opaque at most but naturally wanted to apply sheer. This one was even more prone to sliding around, and I couldn't get the color to build much more than semi-opaque. It lasted for five hours on the face. MAC Ebony Blend #3 (LE) is darker, powder. Dior Golden Snow #4 (LE) is powder. MAC Phresh Out #4 (LE) is darker, powder, warmer. MAC Parlor Smoke (LE, $15.00) is darker, powder, less shimmery. MAC Dangerous Cuvee (P, $18.50) is more shimmery.
