MAC Ribbon Realness is a neutral-toned, very dark mauve with a matte finish. It is a limited edition eyeshadow that retails for $17.00 and contains 0.05 oz.
Ribbon Realness is a deeper mauve with warmer undertones and a matte finish. It had medium color payoff that was buildable to mostly opaque coverage in two to three layers. The texture was soft and velvety to the touch, but I struggled to diffuse and blend the edge on this shade--I had to cheat and use the lightest shade in the palette to soften the edge instead. It lasted for eight hours on me before I noticed signs of fading.

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.
