MAC Legendary Lure Extra Dimension Eyeshadow Review & Swatches

MAC Alluring Aquatics Eyeshadow

MAC Legendary Lure Extra Dimension Eyeshadow is one of a few new limited edition eyeshadows that launched with the MAC Alluring Aquatics Summer 2014 Collection.

This is such a divine shade please grab it up as soon as possible.

MAC Legendary Lure Extra Dimension Eyeshadow is a rich, deep metallic blackened forest green. It looks like a grayish smoky black on eyes and has a very sultry metallic finish with delicious hints of green! It’s really quite stunning to say the least and if you embrace smoky eyes often this is a sexy shade to go with to achieve the look.

MAC Extra Dimension Eyeshadow are gorgeous anyway as they look like a liquid metal in the pan and have a creamy, smooth texture. If these particularly shade is anything to go by it looks like the formula was considerably improved upon! Not that it was ever bad but the pigment is heavier here and the texture feels smoother and easier to blend with a bit less dryness.

And the packaging…!

Simple yet really fun! The compact is a mirrored metallic aqua with little raised 3D droplets of “water”. It’s probably my most favorite Summer packaging to date.

All in all MAC did a fabulous job with Legendary Lure Extra Dimension Eyeshadow! Hopefully the rest of the Alluring Aquatics Collection holds a similar promise!

I’ll be the first to admit MAC has been a little repetitive lately with collections and inconsistent with formulas but truly the did a fabulous job with this eyeshadow and I’m quite excited about the rest of the collection now.

The formula, the packaging, everything is coming up roses here!

Loves it.

Muse Approved.

MAC Legendary Lure Extra Dimension Eyeshadow will be available on counter shortly and online as well at

    Ugh I’m on a no buy for this month, if I can last at least 40 days I’m going to reward myself with Metorites or the new Guerlain Broner. (Using a gift card is the best for buying expensive makeup).

    I did give myself an exclusion, from the no buy, for one item in this collection but the Blushes look fantastic, and the lipsticks are such pretty colors. I will probably go to the store swatch everything I’m considering and cave in on a blush and a lipstick.

    Do you know exactly the date for this Mac Collection? I have heard on the 12th of May and others say 15th or 22nd of May.

      mac says the 22nd but I notice it pops up online typically a week before the official in store/on counter launch so I’d say check around online around May 15th.
