MAC In Extra Dimension

The newest MAC collection was released on the website today and I am getting excited for what we are going to see this month from this company!  Baking Beauties is not due out until the middle of the month so I will be tiding myself over with this collection and the Sephora Friends and Family that is coming up very soon.  I love that MAC always releases great collections right around the same time that Sephora does their big sale, my wallet will be empty by the end of this month at this rate...

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...
