MAC Explosive Chemistry is a neutral-toned, medium-dark pink with a sparkle finish. It is a limited edition eyeshadow that retails for $21.00 and contains 0.046 oz.
MAC Explosive Chemistry Extra Dimension Foil Eye Shadow ($21.00 for 0.046 oz.) is a medium-dark pink with subtle, cooler undertones and warmer, golden sparkle throughout. The consistency was drier, almost chunky at times, and was not as easy to work with as the original release of Foiled shades in this formula.
It had semi-sheer to medium pigmentation when applied dry and semi-opaque coverage when applied with a dampened brush, but the real surprise was how little dampened application smoothed out the application of product. It stayed on decently for eight hours but had light fallout over time.
