This is a unique eyeshadow for its sheen, almost looks like foiled. Very pigmented, I can skip primer and color appears great and stays. These are the kind of shadows I splurge spending on Mac coz mostly of the shadows are dupable. The Sweet Heat has bigger size too! This will last me forever so I won't repurchase.

I got this shadow a long time ago and I still love it. It is a peachy skin tone with lots of shimmer. It is crazy pigmented. I always saw reviews that said,"You only need one swipe." I was surprised by the pigmentation. I could tap my finger and I got a sheer shimmer and if I rubbed once or twice it would become an intense peach shimmer.
The shadow is not the best for taking pictures because shimmery shadows tend to reflect light which on camera can make your eyes and shadows look kind of washed out because it would look whitish from the shine and reflection.
This MAC shadow is not the normal MAC eyeshadow size. Instead of the typical 1.5 grams, you get 2 grams which is much bigger in my opinion. It doesn't sound bigger but with my naked eye I would guess it was double the usual shadow and was surprised to find out it was only one-third more product.
This product is pretty pricy. It costs 28-50 dollars. Normally its around 35 dollars.
Overall, I loved this shadow because of how well it looks just by itself and how nicely it goes on. It is pretty powdery so I thought I'd just warn you in advance.

I bought Sweet Heat (and a back-up) to use as a highlighter more than an eyeshadow as I missed out on the Superb highlighter from the MAC In Extra Dimension collection.
Now onto the eyeshadow, it is a light peach/champagne color. The eyeshadow is very shimmery. The shimmer is not glittery, but more of a sheen and provides high shine which can definitely be layered for more intensity. The texture is smooth and unique in a sense that it feels like a mix of powder and cream. However, it is not too creamy where it felt like cream on my cheekbones (I am not a fan of cream blushes since it disturbs the powder already on my face). I apply this product with a small stippling brush similar to MAC 188.
As I mentioned, I bought this eyeshadow as a highlighter and haven't used it as an eyeshadow. In comparing it with Superb (from when I tested the sample on the MAC counter), the texture of the two are very similar. Sweet Heat is a great dupe for Superb. The *ONLY* differences I noticed between the two is that Sweet Heat is a smidge warmer and is more pigmented.
I would definitely re-purchase should MAC choose to release this type of formulation again.

I love this new formula! Very shiny (almost metallic looking) but easy to apply with no fallout. It lasts all day without creasing (I apply Kett airbrush makeup on my lids as a base). The color is gorgeous! A beautiful peachy nude that I use as my every day go to lid staple (other colors I have used in this way are MAC Grand Entrance, Naked Lunch and Sunday Best but I like that Sweet Heat has more color to it and a better finish while still being subtle enough for an everyday look).
I am pale with yellow undertones and dark hair (reddish brownish black)

I'm in love with all of the In Extra Dimension eyeshadows. This color is the perfect my lids but better shade. A shimmery, golden peach color that gives me a sophisticated 'nude' eye. I love the formula of these shadows and find them easy to apply and blend. Last all day without creasing too.

Sweet Heat is a golden copper pink with a very shimmery finish. If you have pale skin and dislike orangey shades, stay away!
I have tan skin and looooove it! It's kinda similar to All That Glitters, but a little bit less warm and more shiny. The texture is amazing! I always use a base and the Extra Dimension eyeshadows stay all day without creasing.
I *would* buy it again, but I have so many eyeshadows already that I know I won't need to buy it again.

I was loving this color online, but OMG why did I buy it. It's like UD sin with all that unforgivable glitter/sheen. MAC listed the product as a cream to powder and I guess this is apart of my dislike for the product. It's difficult for me with work with/blend.
