Remember, I already made a Video Review on the MAC Magnetic Nude Collection, but here are my written thoughts and swatches of the Extra Dimension eye shadows that I have from that collection.

As I've mentioned in my previous reviews, the finish of the extra dimension eye shadows is one of my favorites from MAC. I like the metallic finish of these shadows to spruce up an otherwise boring eye look. I like to use just one extra dimension shadow (whether on the lid or crease), and I keep the rest of my shadows matte or satin to balance the metallic finish.

I have a lot of extra dimension shadows, but I have two from this collection, A Natural Flirt and Platinum love. I am in LOVE with A Natural Flirt, an iridescent light pink. I have two now, one is from the 2012 Holiday collection, but I am pretty sure I will be able to use both. I like to use this as an all over lid color, and I prefer to use it dry, so it has a nice soft, subtle sheen on the lids.

Platinum Love is described as a bright clean silver. This is great to use as a liner, as a lower lid color or to brighten the corners of the eyes.

All in all, I am a fan of the Extra Dimension shadows, so I can honestly recommend them, especially if you like a little metallic finish on the eyes. You can use them wet for a high-metallic shine, or dry for a more subtle look.

As for MAC Chilled paint pot, I like the subtle yellow metallic color.  I use it to apply a little flick at the end of my cat eye liner.  However, I feel that the color is not too pigmented for it to be a real liner.  This would make a good eye shadow base, though.
