Magnet is a muted, dark gray with a hint of purplish undertones paired with a mostly matte finish. You can see subtle sparkle in the pan close-up, but it did not translate onto the lid. The texture was thin, drier, and dusty, which caused it to sheer out and apply unevenly. This shade was difficult to use alone; it was better used to darken other shades, as it just looked uneven and patchy alone. It lasted for seven hours on me.
