MAC In Extra Dimension Eye Shadow Swatches and Review

Here are the eye shadow swatches I promised all of you. As I mentioned in my review yesterday of the Extra Dimension Skinfinish these are a liquid-powder hybrid formula with prismatic reflections that instantly give you a sculpted and highlighted effect. The texture of the shadows are exactly like the skinfinish, soft and creamy. There are 10 shimmering tints to try. Here are the five I have and their descriptions:

Grand Galaxy: Dirty mid tone violet (metallic)
Lunar: Royal blue (metallic)
Rich Core: Dirty aubergine (metallic)
Dark Dare: Charcoal black (glow)
Young Venus: Pale white pink (metallic)

The shadows are really easy to work with and they apply like butter! I am really loving this new formula. The texture is so creamy and velvety. They are heavily pigmented and staying power is great. I applied mine at 5 AM yesterday and it stayed put all day until I took it off at night. That is a long time. They blend so easy to. I used Young Venus all over my lid and applied Rich Core in the crease. These two go together so well. Gorgeous combination. You have got to try these. You won't be disappointed.

MAC In Extra Dimension Q&A with Nicole Masson
Vice President, Global Product Development, MAC Cosmetics

Q: How do the In Extra Dimension eye shadows differ from MAC's other eye shadows?

A. The In Extra Dimension eye shadows use a completely new technology that combines all the best aspects of creams, liquids, and powders. The smoothness of a cream, the blendability of a liquid, and the wear and ease of a powder.

Q: How did you choose the colors for the In Extra Dimension eye shadows?

A. We chose colors that would show off the color clarity and dimensional desgin of the products. All shimmers look especially beautiful in this formula, but the metallics and duochromes are simply stunning.

Q: Can you describe the process in creating the In Extra Dimension Skinfinish and eye shadows? What is Light Powder technology?

A. This multistep process involves combining a unique blend of creams, liquids, powders, and pearls, removing most of the liquid then shaping, molding, and polishing the resulting "cake". What is left is pure pigment and pearl: full of color but with no white or muddy undertones. That is light powder technology; light can go through to skin without a heavy base look.

Q: Can the In Extra Dimension Skinfinish be used all over the face or on your cheeks only?

A. I can be used all over the face in several ways. You can use it on the high planes of the face to emphasize bone structure, precisely on the inner corner of the eye or the bow of the lips to catch light, or even all over for a sexy glow. It can be subtle or full of color and sparkle.
