MAC Beauty Marked eyeshadow has a velvet finish. It looks very pretty in the pot, like a dark purple with purple glitter, but it's very different then that when you actually swatch it or apply it on the lid. It is actually a very deep burgundy color, almost black, with plum, purple and silver sparkles.
The picture of the swatch is the real swatch you get without any base underneath and without building it up. It comes out uneven and not very pigmented.
This eyeshadow was featured in my latest favorites video, and I did changed my mind a little bit from then. Although I still think it can be very pretty with a primer and a base, if you apply several coats of it all over the lid, or even just on the outer edge. It also adds a lot of interest to the classic smokey eye.
