MAC Wrapped Candy Extra Dimension Blush ($28.00 for 0.15 oz.) is rich, medium-dark berry with subtle, cool undertones and cooler, violet and pink pearl. It was richly pigmented, and a little went a long way, but the soft, blendable consistency made it easier to control and work with on the cheeks–essential characteristics for something darker and pigmented. As I blended out the powder, it became more luminous and the cooler shimmer made it read cooler than it looked in the pan. The blush started to fade after ten hours of wear.

The Extra Dimension Blush formula is supposed to have “long-wearing colour with prismatic reflections” that wears for “10 hours.” The formula is typically very pigmented with a soft, smooth texture that’s firmer in the pan but not difficult to use–I had no issues grabbing color with even my softest brushes–and has no dustiness or powderiness in the pan. The blushes are usually blendable with a luminous glow on the cheeks that did not emphasize my skin’s natural texture. With MAC’s newly-added permanent shades, the wear time has ranged from eight to ten hours.

NARS Navagio Beach Sheer Pop Multiple ($39.00 for 0.50 oz.) is a medium gold with warm undertones and a subtle, pearl sheen. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation with a smooth, lightly emollient texture that glided across bare skin exceptionally well.

The new, limited edition formula is supposed to be a “buildable formula that delivers sheer, high-impact color on lips and cheeks,” and it’s also said another way: “pairs vivid color with a weightless touch,” which seems to suggest that the “sheer” quality is more with respect to the feel of the product than the coverage. That being said, the coverage seems to be “buildable” but still “vivid.” On my skin tone, this color worked more as a highlighter than a blush, but on very fair skin tones, it may also add subtle warmth. It applied best and easiest over bare skin but was workable over a liquid/cream product; I would avoid using it over powder as it tended to cause splotchiness. As a cheek color, it lasted for seven and a half hours, and as a lip product, it lasted for two and a half hours and was non-drying.

Faux Sure

MAC Faux Sure Extra Dimension Blush ($28.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a medium-dark, rusty copper with warm, red undertones and fine, gold and pink pearl. It appeared redder in the pan as well as applied on my cheeks, especially as I blended and diffused the powder, whereas when swatched, it appeared browner. The consistency was smooth, just a smidgen dry, but it remained blendable and easy to work with as a blush. It had opaque coverage that wore well for nine hours before fading.

The Extra Dimension Blush formula is supposed to have “long-wearing colour with prismatic reflections” that wears for “10 hours.” The formula is typically very pigmented with a soft, smooth texture that’s firmer in the pan but not difficult to use–I had no issues grabbing color with even my softest brushes–and has no dustiness or powderiness in the pan.

NARS Cote Basque Sheer Pop Multiple ($39.00 for 0.50 oz.) is a medium, pink-coral with fine, golden pearl. The consistency was smooth, more emollient than the traditional Multiple formula (which has a more velvety, silicone-like feel to me), so I felt like it yielded a more stained-like look applied to the cheeks.

The new, limited edition formula is supposed to be a “buildable formula that delivers sheer, high-impact color on lips and cheeks,” and it’s also said another way: “pairs vivid color with a weightless touch,” which seems to suggest that the “sheer” quality is more with respect to the feel of the product than the coverage. That being said, the coverage seems designed to be “buildable” but still “vivid.” It had semi-opaque, buildable coverage that was also blendable enough that I could sheer out the coverage to semi-sheer, if desired. It applied better over bare skin, but it was workable over liquid/creams, though it looked patchy over powders. It lasted for eight hours as a blush.

On the lips, it was more comfortable to wear than the original Multiple formula (the additional slip helped!), and the less velvety feel made it appear more like a lip stain. The color lasted for three hours and didn’t actually stain, though.

Into the Pink

MAC Into the Pink Extra Dimension Blush ($28.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a light-medium pink with very subtle, warm undertones and a pearly sheen. At first, it seemed like it might have a more frosted shimmer to it, but as I applied and blended out the color, it yielded that same, glowing, luminous finish that I’ve come to expect from the formula. The blush had opaque pigmentation, but the softer consistency (that wasn’t dry or dusty!) made it easy to pickup less product on my brush for less coverage as well. The blush also blended out with ease, so if I felt like I over-applied, I could correct it. This shade wore well for almost nine hours before fading.

The Extra Dimension Blush formula is supposed to have “long-wearing colour with prismatic reflections” that wears for “10 hours.” The formula is typically very pigmented with a soft, smooth texture that’s firmer in the pan but not difficult to use–I had no issues grabbing color with even my softest brushes–and has no dustiness or powderiness in the pan.

NARS Jo Multiple Tint ($39.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a light-medium pink-coral with a natural sheen. It had sheer pigmentation, which was buildable to semi-sheer (two to three layers), but it wasn’t a product that could be layered too much or else it started to feel almost tacky and too slick on the skin. It was easiest to use on bare skin, where it had the most noticeable tint to me, but it was blendable over liquid/cream base products. It wasn’t as foolproof to use over powder.

The new, limited edition formula is supposed to be a “sheer, tinted format” with “natural-looking color” for “lips and cheeks.” Worth noting that while the physical size didn’t seem different, the tube contains about half as much as the regular Multiple formula (0.23 oz. compared to 0.50 oz.). I think this would be more suitable for someone with a lighter skin tone, as it got lost on mine as I blended it out. The consistency was smooth, blendable, and had moderate slip, and it did not dry down, so it always looked slightly wet on the skin. This made for a more comfortable lip product, and it looked like a tinted balm on my lips (not too much shine) and was non-drying. It wore well for six hours as a blush and three hours as a lip product.
