The Christmas collection by MAC made a lot of noise on the Internet. The products have been sold out quickly, and yep, they are pretty good indeed. Though the most wanted was the MAC Extra Dimension Eyeshadow in Stylishly Merry.
It has an awesome golden design, like the lipstick from the same collection. And it looks gorgeous!
The plastic is scratch resistant, the letters don’t fade, and the lid opens and closes easily.
Volume: 1,3 g.
Made in Italy.
The main feature of the eyeshadows from the Extra Dimension line is their formula. These are dry but seem to be creamy to the touch and flexible. The texture somehow resembles the famous Colour Pop eyeshadows, but it’s more metallic.
Initially there was a beautiful snowflake relief but it disappeared without a trace after a few uses.
Thanks to the remarkable formula the eyeshadow should be applied either with a finger or wet. The eyeshadow can also be applied dry but it doesn’t look so bright.
The pigmentation is divine even in one coat. The eyeshadow can be layered. During application and blending, these glitters can fall out a little bit.
The blendability is great, as well as its lasting power, even without any eyeshadow base or primer.
The beautiful and multifaceted shade Stylishly Merry made the whole line extremely popular.
This is an unbelievably beautiful pink-gold-green duochrome.
It’s hard to show these iridescent colors in the photos. In real life, pink seems to be the lead performer, in the photos it’s gold, and when I look at the eyeshadow refill, I see it exhibit a play of gold and green.
According to the swatches on the internet, this shade resembles the Tom Ford eyeshadows in Sphinx. In my collection, the Inglot pigment in 86 seemed to be the dupe.
But they looked comparable only in the refills. Even though the Inglot shows a play of pink and green too, they look different in real life.

But they both are lovely and versatile!
Stylishly Merry opens up beautifully on a dark base in smokey eye makeup, but it’s also fascinating when applied on pale bases in daily makeups.
Armani Eye Tint used as a base, MAC Stylishly Merry on the lid, Colour Pop Yes, Please on the outer eye corner, crease and and lower lid, Becca Champagne Dream Flashes Bellini Light Chaser in the inner corner of the eye and in the underbrow area.
Kiko Milano creamy eyeshadow used as a base, MAC Stylishly Merry on the upper lid, a few shades from the Too Faced Sweet Peach palette on the lower lid, outer corner of the eye and in the crease.
And one last selfie with makeup. The eyeshadow isn’t eye-catching, but you can see the opalescent pink.
MAC Extra Dimension Eyeshadow in Stylishly Merry is a really awesome product! It’s marvelous and easy to use. I receive a lot of compliments when I wear it.
If you ever see this collection, don’t hesitate to grab anything that comes in such beautiful golden housing!
