These trios are different than most of MAC's mineralized eyeshadows.
They have a silky satin type of texture and no real chunky glitter particles. There is very fine shimmer in them, almost matte but not quite.
Swatched dry:The middle color is very reminiscent of MAC's eyeshadow in Cranberry. I swatched them together and Cranberry is definitely more red. The middle color is a lot closer to star violet, which is more purple toned than cranberry.
None of the colors are overly bright, and they were sheer enough to add a wash of color without looking tacky.
