MAC In Extra Dimension
I seem to remember MAC has released other versions of collections with the same name several times before, In Extra Dimension in not a new concept for them and multiple kinds of products have been released with this title on them before. I am not quite sure what about this collection is new but I bet that we will see when we look at the products. I do seem to remember that in previous years, the products in this collection have been larger than normal size but I do not remember them as being anything really special (correct me if I am wrong), I don't believe that I have anything from the Dimension collections and if I do, then they are not the products that I use on a daily basis.
From the Nordstrom website, "In Extra Dimension Skinfinish, Blush and Eye Shadow feature our unique liquid-powder hybrid formula, delivering high-resolution colour and prismatic reflections in versatile finishes with up to six hours of colour coverage. It’s polished perfection." I remember the eye shadow from previous collections, is this the same product or was it changed?
The newest collection from MAC!

128 Split Fibre Cheek Brush - Designed for exceptional blush application, this split-fibre brush delivers a soft, diffused look with its unique combination of natural and synthetic fibers.
I like many of these shades and products but I don't know that there is anything that I am in love with. All of these products has a pretty heavy dose of shimmer and I have never really worn shimmer on my face or cheeks, in fact the reason that I sometimes have problems when buying blush from MAC and NARS is that some shades have so much shimmer in that I consider them almost unwearable (especially during the day) and I feel that all of these blushes will be unwearable for me. The cream finish will only enhance the shimmer and make it more visible on when applied to my cheeks. I will be skipping over these blushes unless I try them at the counter and they look completely different than what I am picturing.
The eye shadows are the only item in this collection that I have any interest in, I love shimmer on my eyes. Extra Silver is my favorite shade, this shimmering silver will look very sharp on the eyes and I would be able to use this shade over multiple seasons. Triple Impact is the other shade that I would like from this line, this lilac will look great in the spring and summer against a tan. The other shades aren't really what I am interested in so I will be skipping over them.
I only like two items from this collection and I think that I will be saving my money for the Sephora sale, there is nothing that I am really needing from this collection and I won't die without either of the two eye shadow shades...
