MAC Smoky Mauve Extra Dimension Eyeshadow
MAC Smoky Mauve Extra Dimension Eyeshadow

MAC Smoky Mauve Extra Dimension Eyeshadow ($21.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “mid-tone cool mauve.” It’s a plummy mauve with a frosted finish. MAC Daylight is lighter. Jasmine Carpet is pinker. Girogio Armani #27 is a touch darker. MAC Universal Appeal has more plum in it. Tarina Tarantino Fantastical #1 is cooler-toned.

Of the six, this was my favorite, because it applied the best–it was so, so smooth and had only a smidgen of dryness. It was soft without being powdery, and it melted against the skin when applied. The dry application is quite pigmented, and the damp application just made the finish slightly more metallic, but they were about the same either way. Smoky Mauve had the best texture, as the product seemed to bind with itself better, which helped to create that smoother finish. It lasted seven hours without fading or creasing (and it’s only designed to last for six).

    So pleased they got the formula right on this, it was the only colour I really had my eye on.

    Hope they have some left by the time it gets to europe.

  5. Sabrina

    This colour looks lovely on you, Christine! I’m not sure if you’ll know, but is this eyeshadow similar to l’oreal’s colour appeal eyeshadow in metal plum, at all?

  6. Ann

    Do you know of any similar color that has more of a matte or satin finish?

  7. ely

    Hello, how similar is stolen moment of Christmas Collection 2012

  8. Avatar of Tone Tone

    This kind of reminds me of UD Bordello, how do you think they compare? Love your swatches, this colour is my favourite of the six too!

    Beautiful color on you! As I’m a redhead atm I might pick this one up, I don’t think I could wear it with my natural blonde but with the red I think it’d be really flattering. :D (Okay and this might sound weird but, I really love your eyebrows. Jealous!)

  10. Kristin

    How does this compare to Urban Decay YDK?

  13. VickyM

    Gorgeous, gorgeous color! :D

  14. Rachel

    This is gorgeous. How does it compare to UD’s Bordello.

  15. Very pretty! I will have to take a look at this in person.

  16. Sole

    I used to stay away from these cool colors, as my skin has yellow undertones, but I recently discovered this shade is extremely flattering to my hazel eyes. Color theory is so confusing. Lol. I’m buying it! Thanks for the swatches. :D

    How does this compare with MAC’s rich core?

  18. This is very pretty. I also like the eye look that you put together. I would not pay $21, but I rarely pay full price for beauty items.
