MAC It’s Snowing Extra Dimension Eyeshadow is one of five limited edition shades that launched with the MAC Snow Ball Holiday 2017 Collection. It’s been a while since I purchased MAC Eyeshadow but now was a good time to do so as the Holiday Collection is quite stunning. Housed in fine beige gold compacts with a crack ice finish and a snowflake design embossed on the shadows you can obviously understand what makes these so very appealing.
Not to mention these all of these are the yummy, creamy Extra Dimension Eyeshadow formula.
Here’s a look!
MAC Extra Dimension Eyeshadow has launched and relaunched in a variety of collections since their introduction back in 2012. These are a hybrid formula created by combining a blend of creams, liquids, powders, and pearls and proceeding to drain all the liquid out of the formula, molding and shaping it into a cake. What’s left of the formula is pure pigment and pearl. It’s a slurry-like eyeshadow formula with a smooth texture that has the finish of the powder but the texture resembles a cream on some levels. It’s different for MAC that’s for sure and at its release it was innovative as well.
The shadow be used wet or dry but I prefer dry myself. However, wet gives them a much more intense color pay off as well as a liquid metal or chrome look. None the less there’s plenty of refined shimmer here but not chunks of glitter or shimmer but more of a frosty shimmer. They do tend to crease and fade a good deal so a primer or a cream base is always a great way to keep them in place. They apply very easily with zero fall out.
One of the shades I picked up was It’s Snowing which MAC describes as a pinky purple. I was hoping for a taupe-y mauve but it’s more of a pinkish mauve with a brownish undertone. It’s a pretty shade because it actually somehow managed to contrast itself. I applied it all over my lid up into my crease below and you can see towards the outer eye and gets a little deeper in color. It’s almost as if I have two different shades on that create a certain contrasting shadow. I love that look and I didn’t even have to use two or more shades to get it.
Overall, the MAC It’s Snowing Extra Dimension Eyeshadow and all the Snow Ball Eyeshadows are worth exploring. They did an excellent job with the packaging and formulas this year.
A majority of stores are out of stock but I’m hoping to see a restock at some point.
