MAC Triennial Wave Eyeshadow ($17.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a brighter, cyan blue with cool undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had good pigmentation in a single layer, which was buildable to full coverage with a second layer. The texture was soft and finely-milled to the touch, but it was slightly powdery, which resulted in a little bit of fallout.
I felt like it was less powdery than the last version I tried, so it was generally improved but didn't feel substantially different (the press seemed firmer). It stayed on well for eight hours on me before fading noticeably.

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.
