I stalked the Mac Extra Dimension Skin Finish in ‘Beaming Blush’ for quite some time before I bit the bullet and picked one up. You know you’re a makeup addict when you go and visit makeup products in their natural habitat.
I first set my eyes on it when I was in town with Sinéad from The Beautiful Truth and we were doing a little makeup perusing. One of the lovely girls in Mac on Henry Street got chatting with us and was showing us the new Strobe Creams. And then, the four new Extra Dimension Skin Finishes. If you follow me on Snapchat, you probably heard me squeal like a pig when I swatched them. I am super classy, I know 🙂
The Mac Extra Dimension Skin Finish in ‘Beaming Blush’ was the one that caught my eye the most and then eventually ended up coming home with me. My brother always gives me a Brown Thomas voucher for Christmas so I used that to feed my highlight habit.
You get 9 grams of product in the typical clear lid Mac compact.
‘Beaming Blush is an iridescent pink powder highlight. The base colour is quite a cool pink but when it catches the light it shimmers gold.
It is quite an interesting combo, I think that’s why it caught my eye so much. It is cool toned and warm toned all in the one powder. The powder itself is soft to the touch. When you swatch it with your finger it is definitely super opaque.
It much softer when you apply with a brush to the skin, which gives you the chance to build up the colour to your liking. It isn’t a blinding highlight. I find it really easy to blend aswell.
I would say the finish is shimmery with a bit of sparkle to it. It lasts pretty well on my skin too.
I have nothing like it in my collection, and I thought it was fun and a little different to the typical highlight colours out there. All four of colours have an interesting iridescents to them.
The Mac Extra Dimension Skin in ‘Beaming Blush is available in Brown Thomas in store or online here for €31.50. All four are permanent in the collection.
