A liquid-powder blush with prismatic reflections in five shimmering shades. Impact ranges from sheer crystallized light to a highly polished metallic effect. Lasts up to 6 hours.
This review is for the five (5) limited-edition Extra Dimension Blushes releasing with MAC’s In Extra Dimension Collection for Spring 2013. This post includes photographs and swatches of the following colors:
- Bareness: Rosy beige
- Blazing Haute: Dirty peach
- Flaming Chic: Bright blue pink
- At Dusk: Mid-tone rose
- Fiery Impact: Burnt red bronze
The compacts are plastic and come with snap-shut, flip-up tops. The pans have the MAC logo and a wave design embossed on them.
Bareness is a very sheer, nude rosy-beige.
Blazing Haute is a sheer peach.
Flaming Chic a sheer, translucent bright pink.
At Dusk is a sheer rose.
Fiery Impact is a soft, brick rose.
None of these shades, other than Fiery Impact, show up on the first layer of blush on the skin. All the other colors require at least two (2) layers to get the color to show up on NC20 skin.
This blush formula has a beautiful finish. The blushes give off a seamless sheen to the skin without any noticeable shimmer or glitter. But the formula is also dry and incredibly sheer, making them difficult to work with and requiring multiple layers just to get the pigment to show up.
Ease of Use: 7.75/10
You’ll need to dig your brush into each blush pan and apply two (2) to three (3) layers of product to get the pigment to show up on the skin.
For $25.00 you get 6.5 grams (0.22 ounces) of blush. MAC’s regular blushes cost $21.00 and contain 6 grams of product. So, you are paying a little more per ounce with the Extra Dimension Blushes.
