MAC Samantha Ravndahl Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a light-medium pink with neutral-to-warm undertones and a natural sheen. It had medium, buildable coverage–up to semi-opaque, which is in line with the Cremesheen finish formula. The consistency was lightweight, creamy without being heavy, and applied evenly across the lips. There was a touch of color that pulled into my lip lines, but the glossiness of the finish made it less apparent at a normal viewing distance. It wore well for four hours on me and was neither drying nor hydrating over time.

This shade is a collaboration between MAC and YouTuber Samantha Ravndahl, which launches April 22nd and will only be available in Canada. There are several other shades (with other collaborators) that will release to specific regions: see full press release here. I only have the U.S. and Canadian shades!

MAC LarLarLee Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a light, pinky-beige with neutral-to-warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had rich color payoff that applied evenly and didn’t drag on the lips, but the color pulled away at my lip lines and appeared slightly “cracked.” The texture felt more velvety, a little thicker but not heavy, and comfortable to wear over the five hours it lasted for.

MAC Hard to Get & Hushed Tone Extra Dimension Blushes

Hard to Get

MAC Hard to Get Extra Dimension Blush ($28.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a deep brown with warm, reddish undertones and a pink sheen. I was nervous about this shade, as darker brown blushes are often difficult to apply and blend out, but this blended out quite nicely. It wasn’t quite as effortless as other shades in the range (but those have been particularly blendable!), but it was still a very easy blush to work with. It had rich, opaque pigmentation that had a luminous finish that did not accentuate my skin’s texture. The color wore well for ten hours on me.

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.

Oyster Girl

MAC Oyster Girl Lipglass ($17.00 for 0.10 fl. oz.) is a light, cooler pink paired with warmer, gold pearl that is plentiful enough that it gave the gloss a warmer tone overall. It had semi-sheer to medium color payoff that applied fairly evenly. There was just a smidgen of gloss that sat in my deeper lip lines, but it looked smooth from a distance due to the high-shine finish. The gloss was moderately tacky, lasted for four hours, and was lightly moisturizing over time.

The Lipglass formula is supposed to be “pigmented, very shiny and can impart subtle or dramatic color” that can be worn “on its own, over lip pencil or lipstick” and will “condition lips.” MAC could use an update on the description as some shades are more pigmented than others but several are sheerer and likely intended to be that way. The formula has a very glossy, high-shine finish with a light-medium weight and moderate tackiness. I find that newer Lipglasses (over the last couple of years) are smoother and not quite as tacky as the formula was many years ago. They wear from three to six hours on me and are usually lightly hydrating. MAC recently updated the shade range and packaging for the range (though the formula was said to be unchanged), so worth noting is that with that packaging change came a reduction in quantity to 0.10 fl. oz. (was 0.17 fl. oz.), which may matter for some but not everyone.

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.

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.
