MAC Opalesse Extra Dimension Eyeshadow
MAC Opalesse Extra Dimension Eyeshadow

MAC Opalesse Extra Dimension Eyeshadow ($21.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as an “opalescent white with pink pearl.” It’s a pale white with an iridescent pearl shimmer/sheen. MAC Defiance is lighter. I also think MAC Pink Opal is similar but perhaps less metallic. MAC Ready to Party is cooler-toned. MAC Young Venus is pinker, less iridescent.

The texture of this still has that slightly dry feeling that the Extra Dimension finish seems to have (a dryness that’s not really bad, but it is still there), but it applies very smoothly–almost as if it melts against the skin. Applied dry, it has semi-opaque color coverage, and applied damp, it intensifies the color payoff to mostly opaque with a stronger reflective sheen. It blended well on the lid, and it wore for seven hours without creasing or fading (MAC claims six).

It had good color payoff, a soft, smooth texture, and it wore well (longer than the brand claimed). If you want to amplify the iridescence, try layering it over a black base.
