MAC Extra Dimension Eyeshadows

MAC Extra Dimension Eyeshadows – Swatches Sneak Peek

I really thought I would be able to have everything reviewed by tomorrow morning, but it’s definitely not going to happen quite so quickly. I hope to have all of In Extra Dimension and Tres Cheek reviewed tomorrow, and then I will work on Reel Sexy, which likely won’t post until Friday. I always underestimate how long the process is! I would really appreciate it if you held off asking any questions regarding colors, dupes, textures, quality, wear, etc. until I’ve posted the review, because I will do my best to address all of those things and more at that time. Thank you!

See more photos & swatches!

  1. These kinda look ridiculously awesome! Can’t wait for the review!

  2. Miss J

    Well, they look pretty, but none of them are jumping out at me enough to want to buy.

  3. Heather

    holy pigmented! I am excited to hear your thoughts on the formula! Modern pewter is FABULOUS!

  4. Avatar of Gina Gina

    Oooh these actually look really nice! I hope the wear time is good!

    I’m holding off on buying any of the eye shadows on the Pro site until I see your review. I’m a bit put off by the “lasts up to 6 hours” comment for the shadows. I’m not sure what’s up and you’ve saved me so much money on Big Bounce and Mega Metal shadows in the past. I’ll wait as patiently as I can for your opinion. In the meantime, thanks for the swatches!

  6. Constanze

    The colours and the effect are awesome! Love it <3

  7. Hayley

    Rich Core is calling my name and wearing sexy lingerie.

  8. Amanda

    Wow, modern pewter!!! AHHH so gorgeous! And I LOVE Lunar

    Can’t wait to hear more about these!!!

  10. Melody

    Wow! Modern Pewter is stunning and I love blue orbit too.

  11. Jocelyn Beckett

    I need lunar dimension!

  12. Avatar of Michelle Michelle

    OMG!!! They look very beautiful. Hopefully they make the grade as I wouldn’t mind getting them!

  13. Valerie

    These are gorgeous! Loving grand galaxy.

  14. Kayla S.

    Oh my gosh! Dark Dare, Grand Galaxy, and Rich Core look amazing! I am so excited for the review!

    • Isobel

      Grand Galaxy, Rich Core and Lunar are my three picks, but I’ll wait till Christine’s review to see if they’re as nice as they look :)

  15. Faith

    Wow, looks like they have an awesome color payoff… I’m hoping they’re as great as they look!

  16. Avatar of Veronica Veronica

    Wow, those are gorgeous swatched. I love Warm Thunder. Here’s to hoping they have a decent wear!

  17. Blue orbit looks great, but could easily make you look like you fell out of the 80′s, and not in a good way.. Grand galaxy is a really interesting shade I think and dark dare is soooooo black! Its amazing! I might have to pick that one up! Thanks for swatching!

  18. Catherine

    These are gorgeous! Hopefully they aren’t another disappointment like the Big Bounce shadows!

  19. Beautiful! Can’t wait to see your review, thank you for working so hard for us! xoxo.

  20. Oh my god! These look so incredibly pigmented! Dark Dare almost looks like a gel liner product :-O

  21. Kristen

    These are gorgeous! I’m so excited- just hope the wear time is good!

  22. ada

    These look gorgeous, but I will wait for your review before committing any money. Thanks for your hard work in getting pics and reviews out to us so can buy with knowledge!

  23. Avatar of Lauren Lauren

    Don’t apologize! You’re a valuable resource, and we’re lucky to have someone like you to do the grunt work for us! I appreciate it!

  24. Avatar of Dee GUSnail

    There are some very pretty colors here. I’ll wait to read your review, though, before getting too excited.

  25. I’m always disappointed with purple eyeshadows, but Grand Galaxy looks like it might be the best frosty purple shadow ever! Can’t wait for your review :D

  26. Avatar of Karine Fiaspice

    Grand Galaxy, Sweet Heat and Young Venus are awsome, but I’m gonna wait for full review if I decide to get them/one

  27. Avatar of Michelle MichelleChefNYC

    Oy! This is going to hurt my wallet… This season seems to be more of a hit with the MAC products for me… these look kinda ridiculously awesome and in colors I prefer to the ones Estee has available at this time… the formula looks similar…

  28. I’m squee-ing hard at Modern Pewter. Wow!

  29. Avatar of Jill cloudburst

    Modern Pewter and Warm Thunder are calling to me!

  30. Courtney

    I like Dark Dare and Warm Thunder, but I’ll probably just end up with the black one because it looks practical.

  31. Renee

    Is this collection limited edition

  32. Avatar of Jennifer Jennifer

    I was trying to only purchase 4 but these swatches are making me want add some other colors to my list!

  33. Wow, Galaxy and Blue Orbit are beautiful!

  34. GABY

    Sooo Pretty!!! Can’t wait for the review!

  35. Marina

    Waaaaah Modern Pewter and Grand Galaxy look like my dream shadows!

  36. Grand Galaxy is awesome!

  37. Avatar of Cheri cheri

    These look fabulous, can’t wait for the review!

  38. Jamie

    Sweet Heat and Young Venus totally have my name written all over them! I hope I can get my hands on them before they sell out!

  39. Wow I love these! Can’t wait to get my hands on them, but I bet they’ll be around the $40 mark each in Australia :(

  40. dom

    Grand Galaxy and Lunar Extra are gorgeous, gorgeous shades. I’m hoping that you rate them well (depending of course on how they actually perform vs. just the swatch) so that I have an excuse to purchase them ;)
