MAC Backlit is a moderately cool-toned, medium beige with a pearl finish. It is a limited edition eyeshadow that retails for $17.00 and contains 0.05 oz.
Backlit is described as a "soft cream nude [with a Veluxe Pearl finish]." It's a light beige with subtle, cooler undertones and a frosted sheen. It had semi-opaque color coverage with a soft consistency, but admittedly, mine arrived broken so it can be harder to tell as it looser overall. It wore well for seven and a half hours. MAC Creamy Bisque (LE, $17.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). MAC Smoked Cocoa #1 (LE, $17.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). ColourPop Acorn (P, $6.00) is warmer (90% similar). Buxom Silk Sheets (P, $12.00) is warmer (90% similar). Guerlain Les Tendres #1 (LE, ) is warmer (90% similar). bareMinerals Nude Beach (LE, ) is warmer (90% similar).

These saturated shadows in neutral and metallic shades and multiple finishes stay on all day long with non-creasing, eight-hour wear. The result: potent colour payoff that applies evenly, blends well and can be used wet or dry.
