MAC Alluring Aquatic Extra Dimension Eyeshadows

MAC Alluring Aquatics Collection introduces six new, limited edition shades of small-sized Extra Dimension Eyeshadows. I have five of the six (all except Silver Sun, which I will review once I’m able to purchase it) reviewed below. The texture of these was incredibly soft and smooth, and in general, I like the Extra Dimension Eyeshadow formula, but it tends to have a slight dryness to it (more in terms of feel than in regards to performance), but these felt very smooth. MAC describes the Extra Dimension formula as a buildable one that can go from sheer to heavier pigmentation and will last for up to six hours; these are all quite pigmented, whether applied dry or wet, and all of these lasted around six to seven hours. The formula seems improved since the very initial release of it a couple of years ago. If you actually wanted a sheer application, you would need to use very little product and blend it out, which may or may not be something you’re looking for.

MAC Fathoms Deep Extra Dimension Eyeshadow ($19.50 for 0.04 oz.) is described as a “deep blue.” It’s a deepened, muted purple with subtle cool undertones and a metallic finish. It had mostly opaque color coverage applied dry, and it was more metallic and fully opaque applied with a dampened brush. L’Oreal Purple Priority (758) (P, $7.99) is darker, less metallic. Sleek MakeUP Romance in Rome (LE, $9.99) is cooler-toned, lighter. Too Faced Badass (LE, $16.00) is cooler-toned, lighter. MAC Frost at Midnight (LE, $21.00) is similar. MAC Grand Galaxy (LE, $19.50) is lighter. Giorgio Armani #3 (P, $33.00) is darker. Estee Lauder Cyber Lilac (LE, $24.00) is warmer. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

MAC Legendary Lure Extra Dimension Eyeshadow ($19.50 for 0.04 oz.) is described as a “deep cerulean.” It’s a a deepened, cool-toned forest green with a frosted, metallic finish. Applied dry, it was semi-opaque, and applied wet, it was fully opaque. Urban Decay Damaged (LE, $18.00) is lighter. Urban Decay Loaded (P, $18.00) is bluer. MAC Clarity (LE, $21.00) is similar. Estee Lauder Cyber Green (LE, $24.00) is warmer. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

MAC Lorelei Extra Dimension Eyeshadow ($19.50 for 0.04 oz.) is described as a “golden beige.” It’s a light-medium, coppery-peach with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. Applied dry, it was semi-sheer, and applied damp, it was fully opaque. Kat Von D Killing Jar (P) is a touch lighter. Too Faced Marzipan (P, $16.00) is similar. bareMinerals Ball Gown (LE) is lighter. Makeup Geek Cinderella (P, $5.99) is slightly warmer. NARS Nepal (P, $24.00) is lighter. MAC Sweet Heat (LE, $19.50) is slightly browner. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

MAC Sea Worship Extra Dimension Eyeshadow ($19.50 for 0.04 oz.) is described as a “tarnished olive.” It’s a murky, olive green with a frosted, metallic finish. It was fully opaque whether applied dry or wet–so getting a sheer application with requires a teeny, tiny amount of product that’s sheered out. MAC Olive Blend #3 (LE) is lighter. MAC A Harvest of Greens #3 (P, $21.00) is less metallic. Kat Von D Hexagram (LE) is warmer. Urban Decay Stash (LE, $18.00) is greener. Giorgio Armani #14 (LE, $33.00) is browner, darker. bareMinerals Speaker Box (LE) is darker, less metallic. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

MAC Soul Serenade Extra Dimension Eyeshadow ($19.50 for 0.04 oz.) is described as a “deep plum brown.” It’s a deep, dark taupe with cool undertones and an almost metallic sheen. It was semi-opaque applied dry, then fully opaque when I applied it with a dampened brush. MAC 2x Dare #5 (LE) is less metallic. Urban Decay Armor (LE, $18.00) is similar. MAC Dynamic Duo 3 #1 (LE, $15.00) is less metallic, cooler-toned. MAC Moth Brown (LE, $15.00) is lighter. MAC Stolen Moment (LE, $19.50) is lighter, purpler. Chanel Illusoire (P, $36.00) is a cream product, slightly purpler. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
