MAC Superb & Oh, Darling! Extra Dimension Skinfinish

Superb

MAC Superb Extra Dimension Skinfinish ($33.00 for 0.31 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark rosy brown with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. The color seemed to be slightly rosier than the last version of this I had (from a limited edition release). It had excellent color coverage that applied evenly to bare skin. The texture was smooth to the touch without being dry or dusty in the pan. It was easy to apply at full coverage and then diffuse the color or to use a lighter touch for less intense shine. The finish, while nearly metallic, did not accentuate the texture of my skin. This shade wore well for nine hours on me.

The Extra Dimension Skinfinish formula is supposed to give “the perfect glow to the skin” with a “creamy powder formula” that wears for “10 hours.” It’s a powder highlighter that I’d describe as a moderate to intense highlighter, and they come in varying hues with some that might work as highlighting blushes/bronzers are on some skin tones and true highlighters on other skin tones. In general, the formula is very pigmented, blendable, and wears around eight to nine hours on me.

Aurora

Anastasia Aurora Glow Kit ($40.00 for 0.90 oz.) includes six, sparkling highlighters that are supposed to have a “metallic” finish for “intense luminosity” that can be used on “eyes, face, and body.” I noticed shifts in Eclipse, Spectra, Helia, and Lyra, but Luna and Orion were more static, even with contorting my arm to view the swatches at different angles. I found incredibly difficult to capture the shifts noticeably on camera, but the ones I listed previously were visible in person as I turned my head. The shifts were more amplified when layered over blush colors. The formula was soft, smooth, dense but not too firm in the pan, and I felt like they were easy to apply and blend out. The majority of shades were quite pigmented, though a lighter hand or more feathery brush could be used for medium coverage. For me, the wear varied from eight to eight and a half hours across all six shades.

It’s presently available on Anastasia’s website but will release at other retailers this summer.

Glow With It

MAC Glow With It Extra Dimension Skinfinish ($33.00 for 0.31 oz.) is a muted, rosy brown with fine, golden shimmer. There was an almost plummy tone to it when blended out, but it seemed more brown than plum overall. For a Skinfinish, it actually had less shimmer–and finer shimmer at that–compared to the majority of Skinfinishes I’ve tried. It absolutely still gave a glow to the skin, but it was easier to be heavy-handed and not worry about emphasizing my skin’s natural texture. It had great color payoff with a very smooth, soft, and blendable texture; it felt like the perfect balance between soft and firm where it was easy to grab product with a brush but not at all dusty in the pan. The color wore well for eight and a half hours on me.

The Knockout

ColourPop The Knockout Pressed Powder Face Duo ($16.00 for 0.52 oz.) features two large face powders–a blush and highlighter–housed in a cardboard palette with an interior mirror. The blush formula is supposed to have “long-wear” with a “soft” and “silky” feel that “can be layered for your desired intensity.” The highlighter formula is supposed to have “high-shine” with a “buttery-soft” feel that has “high colour intensity.” The two shades coordinated well with each other, and despite the difference in textures, actually layered nicely.

In general, ColourPop’s powder blush formula is thinner and can feel a little dusty or powdery, depending on the shade, and has sheerer, more buildable coverage, while the powder highlighter formula is much denser, almost to the point where a dense brush is required to pick up a modicum of product. The upside is the denser quality of the highlighter makes it harder to overdo it from the get-go, so the highlighter has a more buildable glow. I wish their blushes had more of the substance that their matte eyeshadows have, which would give them better adherence and overall coverage.

The blush formula is supposed to have “long-wear” with a “soft” and “silky” feel that “can be layered for your desired intensity.” The highlighter formula is supposed to have “high-shine” with a “buttery-soft” feel that has “high colour intensity.” If you prefer your blushes buildable, then you might like the blush in this palette, but if you want true-to-pan color and coverage in one layer, I’d skip the duo. The highlighter had a more metallic finish with some sparkle but a lighter touch can get more subdued results.
