MAC Magnetic Nude Extra Dimension Eyeshadows
MAC Magnetic Nude Extra Dimension Eyeshadows

There are five shades of MAC Extra Dimension Eyeshadow ($19.50 for 0.04 oz.) in the upcoming Magnetic Nude collection, which launches in-stores and at-counter on December 26th. I wore all five eyeshadows yesterday, and they wore well for eight hours without fading or creasing–after nine hours, there was very subtle fading apparent across all of the shades. A Natural Flirt and Sweet Heat are repromotes, so check your stash for those if you tend to pick up this formula.

Amorous Alloy is described as a “deep terracotta copper [with a Metallic finish].” It’s a muted, medium-dark copper-brown with warm, reddish undertones and a soft, frosted finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff when applied dry, and then applied wet, it was smoother, less powdery, and fully pigmented. Makeup Geek Country Girl (P, $5.99) is softer. Sleek MakeUP Sunset #3 (P, $9.99) is brighter. LORAC Garnet (P) is browner. Disney by Sephora Trust Me (LE) is redder. theBalm Racy Kacy (P, $16.00) is slightly darker/browner. MAC Star Myth (LE, $15.00) is more orange. MAC Magnetic Attraction (LE, $21.00) has gold shimmer. MAC In the Sun (LE, $21.00) is darker. MAC Mythical (LE, $15.00) is less brown. MAC Deep Fixation (LE, $15.00) is darker. See comparison swatches.

A Natural Flirt is described as an “iridescent light pink [with a Metallic finish].” It’s a light, peachy-pink with a frosted, golden shimmer. It flits between peach, pink, and a subtle iridescence of the two. This color works well for brightening. It was semi-opaque when applied dry, and when applied wet, it was much more pigmented. Laura Mercier Sparkling Dew (LE) is less frosted. Laura Mercier Guava (P) is darker. Marc Jacobs Beauty The Tease #4 (P) is similar. Urban Decay X (P, $18.00) is darker, warmer. Le Metier de Beaute Nouvelle (LE, $30.00) is darker. See comparison swatches.

Platinum Love is described as a “bright clean silver [with a Metallic finish].” It’s a bright, pale silver with a metallic finish. It was semi-opaque applied dry, and it wasn’t fully opaque applied with a damp brush, but it was smoother and more pigmented than the dry application. Guerlain Crazy Paris #3 (LE) is very similar. NARS Flowers 3 #1 (LE, $24.00) is darker, cooler-toned. MAC White as Snow (LE, $32.50) is darker. Chanel Infini (P, $28.50) is also darker. See comparison swatches.

Silver Dawn is described as a “dirty grey mauve [with a Metallic finish].” It’s a neutral-to-cool-toned taupe with a frosted finish. It has a strong brown base, but the top layer appears grayer, cooler. It had good color payoff applied dry, but it was definitely more opaque and intense when applied with a damp brush. Marc Jacobs Beauty The Starlet #7 (P) is grayer. Urban Decay MIA (LE, $18.00) is darker. NARS Grand Palais #1 (LE, $24.00) is lighter, grayer. MAC Twilight Falls (LE, $21.00) is similar. MAC Shale (P, $15.00) is a touch cooler-toned. Chanel Raffinement #1 (P) has a hint of plum. See comparison swatches.

Sweet Heat is described as a “soft peach pink [with a Metallic finish].” It’s a light-medium,, muted, peachy-beige with a frosted, metallic finish. It had fairly good color coverage applied dry, but it was more opaque applied with a damp brush–it also turned more metallic. Too Faced Marzipan (P) is warmer. Makeup Geek Cinderella (P, $5.99) is also warmer, less metallic. MAC Rubenesque (P, $18.50) is warmer, cream product. Urban Decay Moonflower (P, $18.00) is more orange. bareMinerals Custom Made (LE) is lighter. See comparison swatches.

Thanks Christine, I meant whatever you lined the lower lashline with in both looks, just checked the photos and wouldn’t have thought it was the fluidlines as they don’t look as glittery. specially, in the pic with It’s Physical Fluidline, some glitter seems to be on your waterline!

Thanks πŸ™‚
In one of your earlier posts, a while ago, you’d mentioned that lining your upper lash line is a problem for you. I noticed that eyeshadow fallout is a problem for my eyes, especially with glittery/sparkly eyeshadow, so I’ll try to restrict glitter to the lower lash line.

I think the finish is very nice. Looking at the comparison swatches is super helpful to determine the shimmer level which I glean is not over the top frosty. Heavier frosts seems to carry too much ‘weight’ on my semi-hooded eyes. These look very wearable.

Is Amorous Alloy similar to MAC Antiqued? It looks the same as how I remember it – as it slumbers in the depths of my makeup case.
Thanks for the review!

I will definitely be picking up a backup of Sweet Heat, it’s an absolute staple for me. I also really like the look of A Natural Flirt, I think I’d get a lot of use out of it. On the fence about Silver Dawn, it’s much more interesting than I thought it would be, but I just don’t know if I’d use it that often!

Hi Christine,

How does Silver Dawn compare to Nars Lhasa and Chanel Notorious?
I have both but I am in love with shades like that. I am wondering if I should get Silver Dawn.

Thank you in advance!

I fell in love with Amorous Alloy but have way too many eyeshadows to justify buying another. Trust me, I was almost ready to swipe my card!

I went to Mac and the girl had sweet heat all over her lid looked absolutely stunning on her!! I gave in and just ordered online! Because when I went back it was all sold out. Still available on Mac.com. I’m excited to wear it, I’m sure I can do a lot with it.
