Extra Dimension Sweet Heat
Tags +highlight accentuating
My first application of Sweet Heat Extra Dimension Eye Shadow showed that this color is lighter than as appears in the color swatch as viewed on my PC. Its shade reminds me of Arena (although I don't have any on hand to actually compare it to) on my NW20 complexion (with very red eyelids). On one eye, I prepped with just my newly acquired Nourishing Waterproof Foundation in NW20. The application felt as if I was brushing nothing over my lids...no pull or drag. It left a subtle color with sheen behind. I would call it a sheer finish. On the other eye, I applied over Painterly Paint Pot. I felt more drag (not negatively) and the result was a more opaque finish. The end result was a brightened lid with a doable (for me - a 48 year old who doesn't do much sparkle) fairy dust touched lid. I think this will be a great highlighter for the brow, or the areas of lid where you want a lighter accent. I love the feel!...airy. I am going to go to the Mac Counter soon to look at the other colors.

Sweet Heat in Gorgeously Radiant
Tags +Highly pigmented, Blendable, Crease resistant
After kicking myself for missing out on Sweet Heat the last time it was launched, I was super excited to get it this time around. It is almost exactly the same, when swatched on my hand, as the Superb MSF which kind of bummed me out- since I have that- but, SH wears so well on the eyes with Painterly underneath it that I think I am still going to keep it. I have other ED eyeshadows and the formulation is great, silky smooth, long wearing, metallic goodness- which can be bumped up a bit with a little spritz of Fix + on your brush. SH just gives my eyes a radiant kind of gleamy rose gold look that looks gorgeous for day or night depending on how I wear it- I like it with winged out black liner and loads of black mascara and highlighted skin. I really don't think you can go wrong with this color or formula:)

Mineralize Eye Shadows
Tags +Highly pigmented, Blendable, brightening the eyes
Platinum Love is amazing on me. I got all five of the colors that came out with the Magnetic Nude Collection which I simply adore. Of course, I am indeed a MAC girl and have been for 14 years now. Platinum Love is really bright but a gorgeous shimmery silver and looks amazing with silver dawn in crease and sketch in crease. I like Natural Flirt as a lid color or brow highlight. Amorous Alloy is beautiful with the Carnal Instinct lipstick with Get Rich Quick on top instead of hellbound. Silver Dawn is also beautiful as an allover eyecolor with black eyeliner upper and lower. Sweet Heat is nice as allover color as well. The most amazing thing about these shadows is all 5 colors can be worn together and still not be overbearing. Get them all and don't forget your 287 brush. Try Platinum Love with Pearl Cream Colour Base to Hold down the beautiful shimmer. Let your nude by magnetic and have fun. I do everytime I go in my makeup trunk and believe me its abundant.

Pretty but ultra sheer
Tags +Blendable, Highlighting
I have Natural Flirt and Silver Dawn. Both are very sheer and you have to brush them on 5-6 times to see their color. I feel as though this line should mainly be used as a highlighter. The Natural Flirt can barely be seen at all and the Silver Dawn can be a crease color if you really pack it on. Im keeping these because I do like the colors but they will not last long due to the amount you have to put on to see it.

My fave MAC shadow finish!
Tags +Bold Color, Creamy, Color true, Long wearing
Until this iteration of Extra Dimension eye shadows was introduced, my favorite MAC eye shadow finish was Veluxe Pearl. I purchased an Extra Dimension eye shadow (Smokey Mauve) when they came out the first time and were much larger in size. When this revamped version came out and I saw them at the counter, I thought that they were all stunning and was instantly drawn to the one that turned out to be Smokey Mauve. This revamped version, however, is miles ahead of its first generation counterpart. The new ones are superior in pigmentation and formula. The new Smokey Mauve is much more beautiful than the first version and I regret that I have the original one now. If MAC only made their eye shadows in the new Extra Dimension formula and brought back the Matte2 shadows/formula, I'd be one happy customer!

Make Them PERMANENT!
Tags +Blendable, Crease resistant, nighttime glamor multiple effects, flattering shimmer.
I love this formulation! You can get different effects with these when applied differently - dry, wet, lightly, etc.
The two shades I managed to grab (before the REST of the colors I wanted sold out!) are perfection. Blue Orbit looks sublime on my pale skin (though a couple of my darker-complexioned friends felt that it didn't show up very well on them...). I'm going to buy another Warm Thunder - it works so well as a neutral on light, cool-toned skin. I don't want to run out of it!
Anyway, I just love this formulation & wish it were permanent (or that all the colors could be restocked, at least once!).

Best eyeshadows
Tags +Bold Color, Highly pigmented, Blendable, Crease resistant
Mac is crazy to get rid of these. I love the pro long wear shadows and pigments but these stand out from the rest. Mac should make these shadows permanent and add more colors. They have the best application and wear. I have oily eyelids and these do not crease and they are so pigmented. Usually I woul take along tome building the depth of color with the cromaline, pigments and the cromakake but the extra demension shawows have so much depth most of the time I use them alone. I love these Shadows!! Make them a keeper MAC!! I am a pro member and Ive tried many shadows on for size but MAC is the best.

these shadows swatch different than they look on the website so if you like the formula, go to the store and checked them out. They are super pigmented, smooth, blendable and minimal to no fall out!

I love these shadows and so far only have two but have plans to definitely add a couple more - what's not to like? I can't think of a single negative. Not one.

Beautiful shimmery shadow!
Tags +Blendable, Crease resistant, dramatic eyes
Such a beautiful shadow! After I put the shadow on my brush I like to spritz water or fix fluid on my brush and pat onto my eyelid for better pigmentation! Also love this applied over paint pots! You can use this many ways depending on application... Sheer shimmer used alone, wet a precision brush to use as eyeliner.... The options are endless!

Dimensional blue!
Tags +Highly pigmented, Blendable, Crease resistant, lid color
So I always tend to look right past blue shadows for some reason..? Idk why. So I waited to go in the store to swatch them all. AND..I gotta say,This shade is definitely 1 of my faves from this collection!! It is the perfect shade of blue to add to any MAC shadows imo. I feel like it has that perfect metallic finish without being TOO much. And I'm usually more of a "matte shadow kind of girl" but this is just a perfect lid color and I think any skintone could rock this! (I'm usually an nc/nw20 when not tanning) Seriously will be wearing this alot this spring/summer! <3 it!

LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!
Tags +Bold Color, Blendable
I bought the color Sweet Heat and it is gorgeous. I originally wanted the In Extra Dimension highlight powder in Superb, but to my dismay it was sold out. So I just happened to look at the eyeshadows from the collection to see if I could find a close match to Superd. I found Sweet Heat and I ordered it right away, it is not the exact color as Superb but it is very close. It is beautiful as a highlight, is that is what I will mainly wear it as. If you wanted Superb i suggest Sweet Heat you won't regret it. I just recently got in Mac makeup so I am buliding my collection. SWeet Heat In Extra Dimenson eyeshadow id by far my favorite Mac product thus far. I may have to stock up on Sweet Heat before it is sold out. I LOVE MAC!!!!!!!!!:)

Amazing
Tags +Bold Color, Highly pigmented, Blendable, anyone
Love the metallic. It bounces back light better than any of the finishes. I have young venus, blue orbit, modern pewter and sweet heat. The amount you get for the price is great and you can use it wet or dry. The pigments are so refined you dont get a powdery mess, almost a liquid finish. They have to keep these in the permanent line!

Tags +Bold Color, Highly pigmented, Blendable, Crease resistant, everyone
I purchased Sweet Heat and am so disappointed to see it's sold out before I had a chance to stock up! I absolutely love the consistency of this shadow and the sheen! I use it with either a bare study or indianwood paint pot, and it lasts forever and looks top-notch! Great compliment for blue eyes!

Smoky Mauve/Spring 2013
Tags +glowing looks
This is a pretty color but it is quite sheer. The texture of this shadow is odd. It is hard as a rock..but I can get a good color payoff with a stiffer brush. Nice and glowing without chunks of glitter. Sort of a purpled taupe.

Zestful is GORGEOUS!
Tags +Bold Color, Blendable, Crease resistant
The closest thing I can compare this stunning shade to is Disney's Ariel the Mermaid's tail. Wet, but dry, shimmery without glittery. Gorgeous shade!
I usually use Painterly Paintpot under my shadows as it most closely matches my skin tone. But over Blackground, Zestful takes on a deep rich hue that you just have to see to believe.

The Perfect Creme Shadow
Tags +Bold Color, Highly pigmented, Blendable, Crease resistant, all parts of eyes., awesome!
This is the best eye shadow I ever tried. It is a soft blend-able, non smearing and stays on without creasing.
MAC you should come up with this as a regular stocked product so it is available to purchase and more colors would be nice!
Good job MAC!!!
Problem is they are now gone. Not a good thing.
