Hello Beauties!

These are my MAC Extra Dimensions Picks
Last week I managed to snag a couple of pieces from the new collection and if you’re a Mac-a-holic you know they average 3 collections a month, 2 of whom are limited edition. It religiously gets me panic stricken, stalking and my heart racing until the shipment notification arrives. What’s a makeup junkie to do if we can’t buy every single item? For me the research begins the moment I hear the release date.  I begin scouring the internet for any and every photo or swatch to find the gems we just shouldn't live without!

With the warm weather approaching the look is glowing sun kissed skin, bright cheeks, and bold lips. I picked up all three of the Extra Dimensions Skin-Finish's inDouble Definition, Shape The Future, and Definitely Defined.   I highly recommend shape the future with its rosy tones and double definition you for the darker skin-tones hands down. These babies come in a split pan with two complimenting colors. They can be used as highlighter, eye shadows or blushes.  I am always sucker for dual functioning products.   As usual MAC's skin finishes glides on smoothly and sinks in giving you that dewy flawless look.

This collection also has liquid-powder blush with prismatic reflections in five shimmering shades. Impact ranges from a sheer crystallized light to a highly polished metallic effect. It Lasts up to 6 hours. My picks were Flaming Chic, a bright blue pink, and Fiery Impact, a burnt red bronze.  Both those babies are a matte finish and are beautifully build-able and fool proof.
In addition there are 6 eye shadows that I completely passed on I actually happen to love the buttery smoothness of the extra dimension shadows but the colors just didn't do it for me.

While this collection is limited edition and some products are sold out on the MAC site do not fear you may still be able to find your picks at retailers who carry the brand such as Macy's & Nordstrom.
