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: 7.75/10

Autoerotique is a mid-toned coral. This color doesn’t show up unless you apply 2-3 layers of the color and dig your brush into the pan.

Pleasure Model is a soft terracotta with very subtle sheen. It also needs at least 2 layers to get good color.

I’m not a fan of the Extra Dimension Blush formula. It’s stiff in the pan and dry, making the color splotchy on the skin.

Ease of Use: 7.75/10

You’ll need to dig your brush into each blush pan and apply 2-3 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.

  1. Man I was hoping that these would be awesome as well so that I could partner them with the skin finish. I just don’t think it’s worth it if I’m going to have to really dig into the product and still might get a splotchy appearance. *sigh* oh well.
