Packaging: 9.25/10

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.

Quality: 8/10

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.

Price: 8.75/10

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.

    They look so gorgeous…but boy, far too sheer!

  2. Sophia says:

    I got all of them except bareness! Based on the swatches and my nc30 skin, I’m excited to see how they will look! Thanks for the review, you were the first one to have reviews up based on my quick research!

    This makes me so sad. Do you think using them on top of some Fix + will add more color? I bought Tease by EL & found that I had to use a very stiff brush (not so easy to find, if you have any suggestions in brushes that are more dense & break up various powders, but don’t scratch your epidermis off while putting on these stiffer products, I’d love to hear what anyone reaches for in this case), anyhow with Tease I really had to dig into the blush to get it to show up. I was hoping these would be a little better. Maybe this won’t be as big of a haul as I had planned…;\ I don’t want to cry twice in 1 day! Oh, good it’s 12:10, big disappointment & what the he-/ is up with MAC releasing their launches & not having all the products available, it’s ludicrous & annoying. This is a sign MAC that you are in over your head. We don’t need LE stuff thrown at us every Thurs. put your effort into making sure the majority of your products are quality…

      They get really patchy and blotchy applied over damp skin. 🙁

      Cat, I also have EL Tease and I have found that a sponge applicator works best for this type of blush. I actually tried it with the applicator that was included and I got very nice pigmentation from it that way. I’m not big on sponge applicators but in some cases, I find that it works the best. Dont give up on it, it’s a beautiful blush! I will be passing on these MAC blushes, really disappointing with the color payoff.
