NARS Jeanette Multiple Tint ($39.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a brighter, medium pinky-red with cooler undertones and a natural finish. It had semi-sheer pigmentation that was buildable to medium coverage, but the more emollient texture made it the type of product that sheered out considerably once you started to blend it out. It worked better on bare skin or over liquid/cream base products and was less ideal 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.). The texture never fully dried down on the skin, so it retained that dewy finish even hours after applied, though it only lasted around six and a half hours as a blush (three hours as a lip color). The additional slip in the formula made it more comfortable to wear as a lip color than the original Multiples, which are thicker and can almost crumble on the lips.

This will launch on April 15th.

NARS Alice Multiple Tint ($39.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a medium, coral-red with warm undertones and a natural sheen. It had semi-sheer, buildable color coverage (up to semi-opaque) that had a slightly wet finish and looked more like a cheek stain.

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.). The texture of the Multiple Tint was moderately emollient with a dewier finish that never dried down fully, so the wear seemed to be shorter at a mere six hours. It worked best applied over bare skin or liquid/cream products and was more challenging to use over powder. It felt like a thin balm in terms of consistency as a lip product, and it lasted three and a half hours on my lips and was non-drying.

This will launch on April 15th.

MAC Rosy Cheeks & Sweets for My Sweet Extra Dimension Blushes

Rosy Cheeks

MAC Rosy Cheeks Extra Dimension Blush ($28.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a bright, medium-dark fuchsia pink with cool, fuchsia pearl. It had nearly opaque pigmentation, which was buildable to full coverage, if desired. The texture was soft, smooth, and just a smidgen dusty in the pan (but not applied); I felt like the softness made it easier to control and to grab less product, if desired, so it could be used as sheerer coverage levels without a lot of work. What was even more surprising was how blendable the color was on the cheeks–it melted and diffused as I applied it and I barely had to blend the edges after laying down the initial color. The finish was luminous but not emphasizing of my pores. The color stayed on well for ten 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. 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.

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.

MAC Cheeky Bits Extra Dimension Blush ($28.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a bright, medium pink-coral with golden shimmer. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation that applied evenly to the cheeks. The powder was smooth, soft, and blendable but never powdery or dusty in the pan (and this type of formula often has a slightly “drier” feel). I was impressed by just how effortless diffusing this richer shade was! The color stayed on well for nine hours before fading slightly 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.
