This eye shadow from the MAC In Extra Dimension collection is called Young Venus. It is a light cool pink shade with metallic shimmer and micro glitters. The 'liquid powder' formula makes the texture feel super soft and blendable on the lid for a sheer, gorgeous effect. The lightness of this shadow makes to wearable and more versatile on the face. It does have a bit of a frost finish, however it is subtle enough to not look like you're stuck in the 1980's.
There are other shades in the collection that are more pigmented such as "Dark Dare" that even dry shows up as a deep black. All the shadows can also be used wet or dry for different effects. Dampening this shade does make it look much more pigmented and also gives it that 6+ hour staying power.
I used this shadow on top of a matte color and it look so pretty since it shines and glows in the light. It can also be packed on in layers to get the pink tone to show up more. Use a fan brush and lightly apply it as a highlight shade to illuminate the face.
If you're like me and tend to gravitate towards more neutral eye colors- this sort of subtle, sheer pink is a good option to add a bit of color to your look without going neon or too bright.
The larger size and fun wavy imprint makes this an exciting limited edition piece to pick up. It is still available on Maccosmetics.com so grab it while you can. 2 grams for $20.
