The formula is supposed to be "long-wearing," "non-fading," and "non-creasing" with a "rich, meteoric metallic finish" and "stay-true colour." It uses "black, ionized pigments" that "are magnetically charged" to fuse the "loose powder together." You can see some of that at play in the jar, but it doesn't really seem particularly remarkable on the lid--I still had some fallout during application when working with the shades dry with a brush. I had less trouble applying with a fingertip when it came to fallout.
I don't think the shades really seem complex unless applied with a dampened brush or over a tacky base--then they seem to intensify, deepen, and the finish really sparkles ("meteoric metallic finish"). Dry, they are more satin-to-pearl, look a little faded, and don't have much dimension. The pigmentation ranged from medium to semi-opaque dry and were all opaque when applied with a dampened brush. They wore between seven and eight hours on me before fading, and they were less prone to fading when just applied with a dampened brush (using water, not an adhesive or setting spray).
The average rating based on all reviewed shade(s) in this formula is shown below.
Black, ionized pigments are magnetically charged, fusing the loose powder together so it magically maintains its form and dimension with a rich, meteoric metallic finish. Specially designed in shiny black packaging with multicoloured glitter and the M∙A∙C logo in rose gold.

While the idea behind these might seem like a gimmick (and it is) and you don't get a lot of product for your money (you don't), I love this shadow and I'm sorry I missed out on Dynamically Charged (it was sold out when I picked up Mysterious Influence). I have a real weakness for this type of colour - murky bronzey olive type shades - and even though I have about 5 dupes of this, I just couldn't resist. It applies and blends so nicely and even works with regular shadows that don't have the magnetic thing going on.
