MAC In the Shadows is a very cool-toned, medium-dark blue with a pearl finish. It is a permanent eyeshadow that retails for $17.00 and contains 0.05 oz.
In the Shadows is a bright, deep blue with cool undertones and a frosted sheen. It had good color payoff with a smooth, slightly slippery consistency (again, felt like there were more silicone or silicone derivatives in it than typical) that helped it go on more evenly and blend out better on the lid, but I felt like the finish wasn't as metallic once on and blended. It wore well for eight hours on me.
FURTHER READING: Formula Overview, which is a detailed review of the range as a whole.
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.
