Mac Extra Dimension Skinfinish/Highlighters: Superb and Glorify: Review and Swatches



Ok I know that this post is long over due especially since I've had these for weeks and they are all sold out now. But better late than never right. I picked up two of the three Skinfinishes/Highlighters from the Extra Dimension collection, Superb and Glorify. Initially i just wanted Superb but when I swatched them I was blown away by the formula of these and got Glorify as well. Whisper of Gilt is just as gorgeous but I skipped since i felt that it was similar to Albatross from Nars. 





PRICE


I think that this was $23US and I paid $250 TT. In my opinion the price is very steep but you also do get alot of product for your money. They both have 9g of product.

PACKAGING

Mac's Extra Dimension Skinfinishes/highlighters come in MAC's standard black packaging similar to their blushes but larger like their msfs and comes with a clear plastic insert to help protect it. Unlike Mac's regular msf's that are dome shaped, these are flat with an embossed wave design complete with Mac's logo. 




 



PRODUCT


Superb is an amazing Rose gold shade (light peach-gold). I have nothing like this and am really happy i decided to get this. I love wearing this with pink and peachy pink blushes. 






Glorify is a beautiful golden bronze. It literally looks as though you melted bronze in a compact. Just gorgeous. This looks amazing as a highlighter, blush or bronzer especially on brown beauties. I love pairing this with Mac's Format blush for that super bronze goddess look. 





The texture of these is one that is difficult to describe and has to be felt to really understand it but ill try. Both of these products have a very satiny and silky feel compared to some other skinfinishes from Mac that have a gritty texture. They are dry but not powdery  if that makes sense. What I love about these is that they are all sheen not glitter which help give it the silky consistency.

PERFORMANCE

These skinfinishes/highlighters are amazingly pigmented, smooth and blend like a dream. You really need a light hand with these. I'm till experimenting with the right application method. So far I've stuck with my Real techniques contour brush. I recommend using a stipple brush or fan brush for those who are not fans of a heavy highlight. Because this product is so smooth it doesnt settle into lines or accentuate large pores like some other msf's that Mac has come out with. Mac claims that these last a total of ten hours on the face. I have not tested these for so long but they did last an incredible 8 hours with minimal fading.  They both leave a beautiful sheen on the face that gives the perfect glow.

Overall 

I really recommend these even though they are now sold out. They are one of the best products that Mac has come out with in a long time. If you got these you know what I'm talking about.


Did you pick up anything from this collection? What do you think about them?


Highlighter Love,
