MAC Extra Dimension Foil Eye Shadows Reviews & Swatches

Cop a Pose

MAC Cop a Pose Extra Dimension Foil Eye Shadow is a medium-dark copper with subtle, warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. It had good pigmentation both dry as well as wet, but the wet application yielded full color coverage and a slightly smoother, shinier finish. There was slight fallout when initially placed onto the lid with a dry brush. The eyeshadow had a smooth, firmer texture but didn’t feel stiff and picked up easily with a brush. It stayed on well for eight and a half hours before fading noticeably and had slight fallout over time.

Vio-lit

MAC Violit Extra Dimension Foil Eye Shadow is a deep violet purple with cool undertones and a sparkling sheen. It had finer sparkles compared to the other shades and had a shinier finish as a result, especially once blended out or when applied with a wet brush. The pigmentation was nearly opaque even with a dry application but looked less vibrant compared to the pan color as well as compared to the shade used with a wet brush. The texture was smooth, dense and firmer but not stiff to use, and blended out easily on my lids. It lasted well for almost nine hours before fading a bit, and there was a little bit of fallout over time.

Gold Metalist

MAC Gold Metalist Extra Dimension Foil Eye Shadow is a rich, medium-dark orange-leaning gold with strong, warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation applied with a dry brush, and there was a little bit of fallout during application. With a wet brush, it had opaque color coverage and no fallout during application. The consistency felt smooth to the touch, firmer but not stiff–dry that I find common to these types of formulas (gel-powder hybrid/baked). It wore well for eight and a half hours with a touch of fallout over time.

Lunar Metal

MAC Lunar Metal Extra Dimension Foil Eye Shadow is a muted, blackened teal with cool undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. The dry application yielded good color payoff but had to be built up for full opacity with a soft, blendable consistency and just a touch of fallout. The wet application resulted in opaque pigmentation in a single layer that adhered more smoothly and didn’t have any noticeable fallout. The texture was smooth, not at all powdery (a little “dry” in a way but not in a meaningful or negative way), and was easy to work with. It stayed on nicely for eight and a half hours on me before fading noticeably, and there was a minimal amount of fallout over time.
