I’m carrying each of them on this look right here, together with some coppery motion on my lids by way of two In Further Dimension Eyeshadow faves — Amorous Alloy and Havana.

Girlfriend, have you ever gotten on the In Further Dimension prepare but? They’re a sub-family of eyeshadows within the everlasting line, they usually’re so, so good. They really feel mild and ethereal, virtually like a cream, however mix like a powder, and all of them have a really distinct shiny end, which is a bit bit extra intense than a satin however much less intense than a frost. They’re additionally tremendous lengthy lasting, too, and extremely straightforward to mix. Speak about unsung make-up heroes.

I blended each collectively as a result of I used to be within the temper to experiment, however both appears to be like unbelievable with any variety of the MAC traditional neutrals, like Saddle and/or Smooth Brown. You may additionally do Texture or Soba. I haven’t tried both with Groundwork Paint Pot, which is a cooler-toned brown that’s additionally a go-to impartial, however I’m curious to see if the distinction between the cool and heat colours would work properly or conflict (word to self, do that out).

By the best way, the In Further Dimension household additionally contains blushes and highlighters. I’m carrying one of many blushes right here — Only a Pink layered on prime of MAC Gingerly blush and Give Me Solar Mineralize Pores and skin End Pure Powder (one other underrated hero).

OH! — and in case you’re into the entire moist/dry utility factor, you possibly can simply as simply apply any of the In Further Dimension merchandise with a moist brush to amplify the shimmer.

I utilized Havana and Amorous Alloy with a dry tapered brush right here, however, as you possibly can see within the pics, the shimmer continues to be there, and it does a fairly good job of not highlighting tremendous traces, so it’s very forgiving.


All in all, the In Further Dimensions are one in all MAC’s most blendable eyeshadows, so in case you haven’t tried them but, it’s essential to, ASAP.

Query for you


I took this pic final night time because the solar set and simply earlier than the entire sky went purple and purple. Marin County the place I stay within the North Bay Space is near lots of the fires burning across the Bay Space, and one of many…silver linings (?) has been that our sunsets and sunrises have been notably lovely and eerily apocalyptic currently.

If you stroll exterior, the air smells like a barbecue… ?

Final night time El Hub and I talked about how the fireplace season has gotten progressively worse over the previous decade, and folk round right here need to be able to 1) seize all their sh*t and run out the door after they need to, and/or 2) be prepared for the facility firm to close off their electrical energy for days on finish. Fairly frankly…I’m bored with it. Recently I’ve been having fantasies of fleeing California, so I’ve been researching different locations we may transfer, only for enjoyable. Final night time we talked about Colorado as a result of one in all our neighbors is shifting on the market in just a few weeks, and fairly frankly I used to be all for it till El Hub mentioned, “You do understand that it’s a land-locked state, proper? You could not be capable of see the ocean for probably years…”

I needed to take just a few deep stomach breaths after I considered that one, as a result of I’m a seaside child via and thru.

All of that is my long-winded approach of asking the place you reside. I’d like to know what it’s like, how lengthy you’ve been there, and in case you prefer it! Perhaps we’ll be neighbors sometime? You by no means know.

Your pleasant neighborhood magnificence addict,
