MAC Samoa Silk Eyeshadow ($17.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a brighter, yellowed orange with strong,w arm undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that was buildable to full coverage with less than half of a layer on top.
It had a velvety consistency that was smooth, not too firmly pressed but it wasn't powdery either, so while it blended out with ease, I didn't have issues with fallout. There was slight fading after eight hours of wear.
The texture seemed slightly richer with the reformulation--more substantial--and the color a touch richer as a result.
