A Medley of Mauves #3 is a warm-toned plum with brown undertones and a pearly sheen. The texture didn't feel stiff but translated into a stiff, uneven application, which occurred whether I applied the color dry or with a damp brush. It had sheer coverage when applied dry, and then semi-opaque coverage when applied damp. This shade was more faded than the others after seven hours of wear. Anastasia Pink Sapphire (LE) is warmer. Urban Decay Last Call (P, $18.00) is more metallic, lighter. MAC Trax (P, $15.00) is more matte. MAC Star Violet (P, $15.00) is browner. See comparison swatches.

The Mineralize Eyeshadow formula is supposed to have "low-to-medium coverage" when applied dry and "more intense coverage and color" when used wet. Most shades have color payoff that is true to the brand's description: semi-sheer to semi-opaque when used dry and semi-opaque to opaque when used with a dampened brush. I tend to find that they apply more smoothly and evenly with a more metallic finish with a dampened brush as well. Some shades can be a little too dry or dusty and do not apply as well with a dry brush. The wear is typically a bit less than average on me--six to seven hours.
