Mac Evening Grey Extra Dimension Eyeshadow (Glamour Daze Collection)

If i didnt know better, i would think Evening Grey was the fourth novel in the Fifty Shades of Grey Trilogy!!! Speaking of which, have you  read the series ;) ?  Oh Come On..i know you have, atleast one ! I actually read it in train journeys on my honeymoon, and while the sheer doormat-ness and pre-historic thoughts of the female protaginst was way too annoying for me to finish the entire book…i was definitely curious to read more of what they described as ‘Mommy Porn’ . (Needless to say boy not happy about me reading such novels on our HM- but what else are you supposed to do on a train? Actually….Im sure EL James would think of a couple of things a couple can do on a train but lets not go there!). Anyway, coming back to whats important- Mac Evening Grey Eyeshadow which is part of the limited edition Glamour Daze Collection. Doesnt it look like a work of art? Its gorgeous to look at !!!!

Evening Grey, is more like a  darkish  steel  grey , and is perfect if you want a smokey eye with a kick. Just a pop of this on the middle of a smoked out lid and you are set for a gorgeous night out !! Greys can look ashy on warm skintones, but Evening Grey has a warmer almost brown undertone so it totally works on all skintones. I also like using silver eyeshadow for my inner corners a lot of times but this is a darker grey, isnt a bright white so its not that effective in that area . Extra DImension eyeshadows can be used wet and dry and this delivers on both fronts!

I thought this was really well pigmented, both wet and dry.The texture was really soft – almost melting on your fingertips when you touch it! I dont know theyr not quite the same texture as powder eyeshadows- it seems like a mix of almost like a powder and a gel kind of eyeshadow.This wears long, even without a primer and should be up for that date night you have planned and then some ;)




Verdict: A

Price: Rs 1100/- (Not sure)

Recommendation: Mac Extra Dimension Eyeshadow in Evening Grey, was very pigmented, extremely soft and blendable and really a pleasure to pretty up with !  The texture is not really like a powder shadow , its more buttery and can be used wet or dry.Evening grey is a beautiful darkish silver grey that is great for a smokey eye!

What ? You want an eye makeup look? Tutorial? Yes, trying to get one of those in i promise!!!

a perfect color to be used with smokey eyes…
colorbar has a single eyeshadow in silver even tht is buttery smooth and can b use as inner eye highlighter but its like a pure silver ..
i love how warm this shade is. :) :)

The eyeshadows in this collection are so awesome! I was really tempted to get some, but I’ve been saving money for the Marilyn Monroe collection lipsticks.. :P

Nitya January 18, 2013 at 8:56 pm

A tutorial would be very nice, and never got around to reading the series yet.. it was so hyped up that I lost interest even before getting my hands on it.


Swati January 19, 2013 at 12:31 am

Oh.. i read the series. Started out of curiosity and then had to know what the ending was.. so.. :)
This is such a nice shade of grey silver. Please do a tutorial on a smokey eye with this!


Rajvi January 19, 2013 at 11:14 pm

Ya I was thinking of reading it too.. but got a big pile of books at home that I still need to finish.

About the eyeshadow, I always wonder whether ths shade of grey will look too dramatic. and yes waiting for a tutorial from you :)

Can you also suggest what eye shadow primer should I buy? and is it really needed to put one?


Karishma January 20, 2013 at 2:11 am
