MAC Silver Sun Extra Dimension Eyeshadow ($19.50 for 0.04 oz.) is described as a “mid-tone dirty sea foam green.” It’s a medium-dark, subtly yellow-toned green with a golden, frosted sheen. Sleek MakeUP Fauna (P, $9.99) is darker, less metallic. Ulta Sage (P, $10.00) is lighter, warmer. Tarina Tarantino Wonderful #2 (P) is darker, matte. NARS Delphes #3 (LE, $24.00) is less metallic. MAC Sweet & Sour #2 (P, $21.00) is cooler-toned, darker. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Applied dry, it was semi-sheer, and applied damp, it was fully opaque. The texture was soft, buttery, and smooth, so it was easy to apply and blend out on the skin. It wore well for seven hours before starting to fade just slightly–and MAC touts the wear of the formula at six hours. If you missed this when it launched on MAC’s website, the collection will still launch at other retailers next week and in-stores/at counters on the 22nd. You can see the reviews of the other shades here.

Pretty! I think the eyeshadows in this collection are so gorgeous – why can’t MAC make all its eyeshadow collections so good?!

MAC ban or no, I take off my hat to them for these, and I will definitely be going for a swatch when this line comes out here in June!

It is a mystery to both of us, Sylirael! Similarly, we all know MAC is fully capable of excellent products… but many are epic misses!

All the shades from the collection are so pretty…..mine favorites are Lorelei and silver sun…which one is your favorite from the whole bunch

My goodness this is beautiful! I really like the eyeshadow colors MAC came up with for this collection!

This one is beautiful! Seafoam green? Really? Haha! 😀 The reflects are stunning, but I’d be so happy if the payoff occurred w/o it having to be wet. 😀

It really bugs me that MAC is calling these minis when the size really isn’t & the price definitely isn’t. This have all been beautiful, but with that price, no thanks!

I guess compared to the original Extra Dimensions they released? Those were almost double the size – their larger eyeshadow!

This is so stunning! My jaw dropped when I saw it. Some eyeshadows ya just gotta have, and I see this one as one of them. Hi Christine, I am new here. I wanted to say hello to you and anyone else here. Hi! 🙂
