Hello Beautiful People

I am here to talk about one of my favourite  shadows MAC Extra Dimension Shadow in Zestful!
I very rarely these days buy 'backups' but boy oh boy did I buy a back up of this shadow!

This shade is a iridescent lime colour that seems to glow even in the worst of lighting as you can see in the last photo.

This was apart of the In Extra Dimension collection which was released a while ago though the date escapes me however I have checked both the Australian and USA MAC webstore and this shade is still available ($51 AUD or $21 UDS for 2g of shadow)

Onto colour specs so Zestful is a some what 'difficult' shade to work with meaning it requires a patting motion for full opaqueness which is a shame its not so opaque with one pass though it is defiantly a buildable shade. It is however beautiful as a wash of colour to give a glow to the eye lid or over another shade.

I found this shade preforms best over a base for it to be completely opaque my favourite base is Urban Decay's 24/7 Glide on eyeliner in Freak as it also has iridescent properties and is a similar shade however a White base works as well.

This shade is very finely milled and blends out well with nil tugging on the lid, it is a 'soft' shadow so and I have a feeling it would be very easy to shatter if you accidently dropped it. I am a HUGE de-potter but I haven't de-potted this shadow for fear that it would shatter quite easily.

Over all Zestful has become a Holy Grail item for me I kinda wish I picked up some of the other shades but you never know =)

Final thoughts: This is one of my all time favourite HG eye shadows I find this shade extremely versatile and often find myself reaching for it I haven't found another shade that is quite as iridescent as Zestful this shade for optimal POP is best used over a base.

Overall Rating:  A+


  1. I really want this and Opalesse but...OMG...$51??? How do you do it? I could never buy MAC if it cost that much. :-(

    1. I have a few REALLY awsum and sweet friends in the US who buy for me and ship it =) they are angels <3

    2. that IS AWESOME!! Well if you ever need another let me know, haha. I love getting stuff for people. :-D I just traded a girl in Ireland for a MAC eyeshadow she couldn't get there and she sent me two sleek palettes I'd been dying to try buy they won't ship them here.

  2. so I bought it! LOL. They didn't have Opalesse :-( though at my Nordstrom store online(where I buy a lot of my mac b/c I have a store card)- I had a $20 store GC, so I bought this and two LE MAC palette's that the store has for it's summer sale. I need to stop spending, haha.
