See below for the steps on how to create this eye look. Sorry the image is not super clear
I used the following products shown below
- After priming the eye area, I used Sleep palette eyeshadows (unfortunately i don’t know the names of what I used)
- Topped it off with Illamasqua’s “ore” pigment
- Defined the outer corner into the crease with a darker color from the sleep palette (dark brown)
- Maybelline gel liner
- smoky lash mascara from makeupforever
- chanel nude eyeliner “clair” on waterline
- Ardell lashes “demi pixi”
Thanks to one of my followers (more like a sister) who got this product for me from the UK!
Well, this collection didn’t arrive in Bahrain yet and it will arrive on doomsday I guess:P
The product I will review here is from a new collection in MAC- which already launched in the US and Europe for a while now.
The product is from a collection called “In Extra Dimension“- the full product listing/pictures can be found in a previous post- click here !
This amazing collection features beautiful eyeshadows & skinfinishes…. all in 3D texture.
FYI: it’s called ‘extra dimensions’ for a reason- to highlight the dimensions of the face & bring out it’s unique features.
According to MAC- “Introducing a new liquid-powder formula with prismatic reflections that sculpts, highlights and models the face.”
Gorgeous shades- and I fell in love with a skinifinish which I had to get a hold of!
“Superb” – is one of 3 skinifinishes available. I fell in love with the color.
Superb is more of a nude peachy color with a hint of gold with it. More like rose gold
It does have shimmer- but I love how it is NOT too shimmery/glittery. It’s a subtle shimmer to give a beautiful glow.
Many girls will get confused, believing it is like other mineralize skinfinish products from MAC. Well, it is completely different- I think they should have named it something else. The texture and finish is totally different than the other skinfinishes.
FYI- this product is a highlighter. Meaning that you would use it to accentuate the features on your face. I love using it on my cheekbone & nose.
What I absolutely love about this specific shade, it goes perfectly with a tanned look! Many of the highlighters we find don’t contain a golden/nude sheen – more leaning towards silverish white colors. A sunkissed look goes perfectly with “superb” skinfinish.
Use it with a sigma brush F35 or MAC 188 to apply on specific areas. Don’t over apply – make it look natural.
It is easily blendable- highly pigmented- long staying power.

This product is selling out FAST- and it is LIMITED edition… so get it while u can!
There’s more to the eye primer potions from URBAN DECAY!!
I have been constantly talking about the eye primer potion – original.. The one you apply on your lids before applying eyeshadow – so your eyeshadow won’t crease in the middle, and to help it stay put for over 12 hours!!! I absolutely love the primer potions.. I have it in a couple of tubes- big, small, squeezi tubes, and professional sized ones.. That is how much I’m obsessed by it- CUZ TRUST ME IT’S REALLLLLY GOOD!!!!!!
Well, urban decay also offers the primer potions in different shades!!!!! You have probably not heard of them- but the ones I have been constantly talking about is the original one- transparent color. Looks like beige but is actually transparent. I have reviewed “EDEN” – their matt beige primer in a previous recent post!
I have the Eyeshadow Primer Potion in “SIN”
I’m obsessed with this product! I salute UD for producing this. It’s an eyeshadow in a tube!! This is the fastest applying eyeshadow in the world. 2 dots- and smudge- WOW!! This stuff really makes me happy!
SIN: the color can be described as a shimmering champagne. It’s highly frosted with some tiny shimmers.
This formula will allow your eyeshadow to pop. You can apply eyeshadow on top of it, but I just love to use it on its own!! If used under eyeshadow- it tends to glimmer underneath the shadow- adds glamour! It looks so glamorous on its own- just a black liner + mascara & you’re good to go!
THIS COLOR GOES AMAZING WITH RED/BURGUNDY LIPS. TRUST ME
The pic below shows a swatch sample on my hand, you can see the color
Just apply a few dots on your eyelid & pat it or blend it with your fingertips!
You can order it online, usually from amazon- or get it from SEPHORA dubai.
