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.

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 Lustrewhite Lipglass ($17.00 for 0.10 fl. oz.) is a clear gloss with fine white pearl and larger, white sparkle. (Thankfully, MAC listed this one as “clear-glazed with white sparkle,” so the sheerness was as expected.) It had a slightly thinner consistency compared to most of the Lipglasses, though it was still noticeably tackky on the lips. It had semi-sheer coverage with respect to the amount of shimmer in the product. The gloss wore well for three and a half hours and was lightly hydrating.

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.

MAC Fortune Red Lipglass ($18.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is a medium red with neutral-to-warm undertones and a jelly-like finish. It had medium to semi-opaque, buildable color coverage that went on evenly and didn’t gather in my lip lines. The consistency was thinner than the average Lipglass, which I expect was partially due to the packaging have a tighter opening that made it so less product was on the doe-foot applicator. It was still moderately tacky as the Lipglass formula typically is. The gloss lasted for five hours and was lightly hydrating over time.

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 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 hours on me.

MAC x Min Liu Fortune Eyeshadow Duo ($29.50 for 0.08 oz.) contains a light pewter and a matte medium pink housed in a slim compact. It’s a more unique color combination, but it was harder to work with the two shades alone as the matte was thinner and the pewter was more sparkly and had less base color.

MAC Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a bright, medium red with neutral-to-warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had nearly opaque color coverage that covered the lips evenly. The texture was denser but velvety, so the lipstick glided across the lips with ease and never dragged despite having a more matte finish. The color was still going strong after six hours of wear, and it only started to feel a bit drying after five hours of wear.
