MAC Twelve Chimes is a very warm-toned, medium-dark gray with a frost finish. It is a limited edition eyeshadow that retails for $17.00 and contains 0.05 oz.
Twelve Chimes is a dark gray with warmer undertones and a pearly sheen. The texture was firm and stiffer in the pan, and it was actually not the same gritty, drier texture that I'd expect of a Lustre finish. It had semi-opaque coverage, which was more coverage than most Lustres (which are designed as sheer). It was very difficult to blend out the color, as it looked uneven due to the stiffer texture. The color started to fade after seven hours of wear. Dior Golden Reflections #1 (LE, ) is lighter (95% similar). Buxom Graphite Glam (LE, $12.00) is lighter (90% similar). Chanel Modern Glamour #4 (PiP, ) is less shimmery, darker, cooler (90% similar). Chanel Tisse Rhapsodie #4 (LE, ) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Spring 2015 (LE, $45.00) is warmer (85% similar). Dior Smoky Canvas #1 (LE, ) is less shimmery, lighter, cooler (85% similar). Chanel Jardins de Lumieres #3 (LE, ) is more shimmery, lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
