The Mac Glamour Daze Extra Dimension eye shadows are described this way on the Mac Cosmetics website: A liquid-powder Eye Shadow with prismatic reflections in eight shimmering tints. Impact ranges from sheer crystallized light to a highly polished metallic effect. Lasts up to 6 hours. Limited-edition Glamour Daze packaging
Doesn't that sound enticing? They are $19.50 for 1.3 grams of product or .04 oz. It's a hefty price tag. The pot is the same size as a regular sized Mac eye shadow. And they have "special packaging" which is basically just a shiny version of the regular Mac shadow pot.
Let's start with Stolen Moment.
This is a fabulous warm taupe shadow with a silvery shimmer that shows up particularly when you use the shadow wet. In the swatches, you'll see it swatched dry on the left and wet on the right. Notice how much more intense the color is when used with a little dampness.
The Extra Dimension eye shadows apply with such smoothness, being some kind of fascinating hybrid of liquid and shadow. They blend easily and give a nice little glow to the eye. The look and application of these shadows are really similar to the Estee Lauder Pure Color Gelee' eye shadows as well as the Sephora Prisma Chrome shadows they released in the spring and quickly retired. They're fascinating just to look at!!
Round Midnight is a delicious brown with plum shine. It's a chameleon leaning to purple or more to brown depending on what you pair it with.
Again swatched dry on the left and wet on the right. The plumminess is more evident in the wet swatch as you can see it shining in the shadow.
Here are some swatches to compare the two colors. Round Midnight is on the left and the dry and wet swatches of Stolen Moment are on the right.
I put the two shadows to use along with Ready To Party, which I'm going to review fully in another post. I used just a little Ready To Party at the inner most part of the eye for shine.
In the next pictures, you can see that using Round Midnight at the outer edge and as a liner over Stolen Moment makes it lean more to brown and less toward plum.
The next picture kind of outlays the shadow placement for you.
My little ol' eyeball of the day...I got a lot of compliments with this combination. I'll definitely wear them this way again.
Mac declares that these shadows wear for six hours. That's not going to get you through a whole day of work if it's true so choose your shadow base wisely. I found that at the six hour mark, I did have just the tiniest bit of creasing starting. I honestly expect a longer wear time for a nearly $20 eye shadow. Considering that these are a liquid-shadow hybrid, I guess that's pretty good.
These shadows are selling out at many locations. Check your local counters at Nordstrom, Macy's, Dillard's, Belk and wherever else Mac may be sold.
