Want It: Mac In Extra Dimension Collection May 2012

I always get excited when new collections with pretty powders and palettes are released (see my recent post on the new Chantecaille palette) and it's no different when it comes to Mac's upcoming In Extra Dimension collection. Due out in May the collection includes 3 new Extra Dimension Skinfinishes and 10 new Extra Dimension Eyeshadows. The formula of these is supposed to be similar to Estee Lauder Cyber Eyes eyeshadows and gelee powders (Modern Mercury and lately Topaz Chameleon) which are all lovely, so no wonder I'm excited about these!

And if you're thinking you might have seen the design somewhere, you're not wrong! Do you remember these Barbara Daly Satin Swirl Eyeshadows? Similar pattern without the "Mac" bit obviously. (I actually have the Barbara Daly shadows in 3 more shades - must review them soon!)

Anyway, the skinfishes and eyeshadows come in the following shades:

Extra Dimension Skinfinish 
Whisper Of Gilt - light soft white gold with shimmery sheen 
Superb - soft peach nude with multi dimensional shimmer 
Glorify - copper golden shimmer

Extra Dimension Eyeshadows 
Warm Thunder - midtone silver grey
Blue Orbit - light iridescent purple 
Grand Galaxy - midtone violet 
Lunar - royal blue 
Havanna - midtone copper brown 
Sweet Heat - bright peach champagne
Modern Pewter - midtone olive gold 
Rich Core - midtone aubergine
Dark Dare - charcoal black 
Young Venus - pale white pink

To be honest I would've liked to see some more fun shades, greens and yellows perhaps, since a few of these colours are really similar to the Estee Lauder Cyber Eyes eyeshadows.  But I'm still looking forward to trying these out and I'll probably end up with a good few of them.

See lots of photos after the jump!

  1. I'm really excited for this collection too! The rose gold eyeshadow looks gorgeous, and I'm really interested in the Skinfinishes!
    May get some of the Barbara Daly ones, will be interesting to see how similar they are in texture!

    1. The Barbara Daly ones are definitely powder whereas these are supposed to be more hybrids like the Estee Lauder ones. But having said that, the BD ones are really nice, so worth a try! I will review the 3 shades I got recently asap. x

  2. Not really feeling these eyeshadows but that's only because I'm annoyed when MAC releases huge eyeshadows that nobody will ever finish using and they are way too big to be in a regular eyeshadow palette, but too small to be in a blush palette. The texture seems intriguing though.

    By the way, thank you for your update on the new mineralized eyeshadows! It was very helpful.

  3. The superb skin finish sounds like it would be right up my alley! It's nice to see MAC doing something a bit different again. Nothing from their new collections has really called to me yet this year x
