I really debated about whether or not to get this shadow. I already have Loaded, Damaged, Fiction and several other “dupes” for this shade and to be perfectly honest, my “need” for this sort of colour (greenish and dark) is pretty limited. But I knew I’d regret not buying it and it is such a gorgeous and complex shade. The “Extra Dimension” formulation makes this colour quite wearable, since it’s easy to get a lighter application that is still smooth and even but just not super dark or “in your face”. I wear this to work quite often – that’s how wearable and versatile it is. Glad MAC made this permanent so more people can purchase (Alluring Aquatics sold out SO fast that I wasn’t even able to purchase this).
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.
