Thursday, April 6, 2017

Today, MAC is launching a new collection of Extra Dimension Skinfinish shade extensions and Extra Dimension Blushes: "With their shimmering, high-shine finishes and dual-action light that gives skin a smooth glow, Extra Dimension products are perfect for the highlighting habitué in all of us." This collection features a total of 16 products, of which 10 are new and permanent, four are re-promotes and now permanent, and two are permanent. Extra Dimension sees the launch of one new and two re-promoted shades of Extra Dimension Skinfinish, all of which will be added to MAC's permanent line-up. Extra Dimension Skinfinish is described as a "unique liquid-powder formula [that] brings a cushiony aerated 'bounce' to makeup, while instantly sculpting and highlighting the face in a flash." They are housed in regular black round clear-lidded compact with the MAC logo on the lid. Each Extra Dimension Skinfinish contains a total of 9 grams of product, and retails for $38.

In daylight: Oh, Darling, Superb, and Glow With It

In direct sunlight: Oh, Darling, Superb, and Glow With It

Oh, Darling is a light-medium warm champagne gold with a metallic sheen in a luminous pearlized finish. This is a re-promoted shade from 2015's Magic of the Night collection, and is now permanent. It has a lightweight, silky texture, and goes on smoothly and evenly. It has high pigmentation and opaque colour pay-off. It can be layered and blended out easily. It is darker and more gold than Double-Gleam, more gold than Beaming Blush, and lighter and more gold than Global Glow Mineralize Skinfinish.
Superb is a medium warm rosy champagne beige with a metallic sheen in a luminous pearlized finish. This is a re-promoted shade from 2012's In Extra Dimension collection, and is now permanent. It has a lightweight, silky texture, and goes on smoothly and evenly. It has high pigmentation and opaque colour pay-off. It can be layered and blended out easily. It is darker and more pinked than Beaming Blush, darker and more metallic than Soft and Gentle Mineralize Skinfinish, and more pinked than Global Glow Mineralize Skinfinish.
Glow With It is a medium-dark coppery bronze with a metallic sheen in a luminous satin finish. This is a new and permanent shade. It has a lightweight, silky texture, and goes on smoothly and evenly. It has high pigmentation and opaque colour pay-off. It can be layered and blended out easily. It is darker and more bronze than Cheeky Bronze Mineralize Skinfinish, and more copper than Gold Deposit Mineralize Skinfinish.

All my fellow highlight fiends can rejoice, for MAC has added three more beautiful shades to their Extra Dimension Skinfinish family, and they are all permanent! MAC changed the highlighter game with this formula five years ago (yes, when Whisper of Gilt made its first appearance) and we have seen dozens, maybe even hundreds, of dupes from a multitude of brands since then. A lot of people who like the metallic, pearlized sheen of Mineralize Skinfinishes but want a smoother, almost wet-looking finish will love the Extra Dimension Skinfinish formula. It's a wonder why MAC didn't make these permanent sooner because they are still some of the brand's best-selling and most-hyped products to date, but better late than never — MAC finally listened and not only made this formula permanent, but expanded the range to seven shades, including the ultra-coveted Oh, Darling (which sold out within hours during its initial launch). That having been said, Oh, Darling and Superb are definitely geared towards medium to deep-dark skintones, with Glow With It designed for dark to deep-dark skintones (note: Glow With It is less pearlized than both Oh, Darling and Superb); those with fairer complexions can, of course, use all these as well, but they will act more as blushes or blush toppers than true highlighters. Regardless of which shade you decide on, you can be sure that your cheeks will be beaming to the gods.

  1. Hey Denise, I am NW40. Do you think I could use Glow With It as an eyeshadow? I love the shade.
