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.
