I remember being far from impressed with MAC Extra Dimension Blush on the original release and MAC At Dusk Extra Dimension Blush, one of three new shades launching with the MAC Magnetic Nudes Collection, is far from impressive either.
MAC Extra Dimension Blush made their first appearance for Spring 2013 and we get a new selection of these of them for Spring 2014 along with new Extra Dimension Eyeshadows and Skinfinishes.
At first try I said they sucked….they are so sheer even though they appear pigmented in the pan! Plus the metallic finish one would expect simply isn’t there.
Let’s take a look!
I always feel slightly mislead with MAC Extra Dimension Blush because at a glance they look like a metallic, glowy blush of some sort but in reality they are terribly sheer without any such pop or sizzle!
They have a soft, silky feel with a semi-matte satin finish in my opinion!
At Dusk is actually a repromoted shade from the original release. It’s a very cool pink and I didn’t feel like the pigment suffered any great improvement on this second release. I can’t get it to build very well so the color is very, very soft and subtle. The consistency is very soft and very silky! It’s very easy to blend as well. The disappointment stems from the fact that the formula has very little pigment. On my skin tone I can’t even get it to show up at all!
I think if you’re automatically assuming they have the finish and consistency of an Extra Dimension or Mineralize Skinfinish you’ll be disappointed but if you felt like those two products were a little too sparkly or too glowy for your tastes well than Extra Dimension Blush will be a pleasant and welcome surprise.
The formula is beautiful but the pigmentation is such a bust for me! Le sigh! If you like less than pigmented blush perhaps you’ll like MAC Extra Dimension Blush but if you want pop, well, there isn’t any to be had here.
Are you a fan of these blushes?
