MAC Incinerated Dazzleshadow Extreme ($20.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark plum with strong, warm undertones and a pearly sheen. The texture was smooth to the touch, dense and more firmly-pressed into the pan, so it needed a firmer hand or a denser brush to pick up product well (e.g. a pencil brush picked up product fairly well but a fluffy brush was difficult to use with it). It had good color coverage in a single layer but had to be spread and smoothed back over to get an even, opaque layer of product. It showed signs of creasing after eight and a half hours of wear but most of it was still applied after 12 hours of wear (but noticeably creased).
