MAC Fiery Impact Extra Dimension Blush
MAC Fiery Impact Extra Dimension Blush

MAC Fiery Impact Extra Dimension Blush ($25.00 for 0.22 oz.) is described as a “burnt red bronze.” It’s a burnt orange–a little redness to it–with a subdued quality so it doesn’t appear too red or intense–and a barely-there satin sheen. Chanel Frivole is bolder and more matte. Guerlain Peach Boy is brighter and redder. NARS Gilda is redder.

It had buildable color coverage from sheer to true-to-pan color, which is deep and dark enough to work on deeper complexions but still be an easier shade to apply for even fair skin tones. The texture has the dryness present in the formula, but this dryness doesn’t seem to contribute to a powdery look on the skin or difficulty in blending out the product. Instead, the product applies evenly and easily, blends out well, and the finish gets more and more natural the longer you work it into the skin. Fiery Impact wore for eight hours–quite impressive given the wear of other shades and that MAC states these have a six-hour wear time–and didn’t look faded at all.

    How does this compare to MAC’s Early Morning? I missed out on that one and have been hoping to find something similar…

    Oh, very cute! So far I’m really loving these blushes! I’m an NC15– I wonder if I could manage this with a very very light hand…

    • I am going for it and trying this! I am fair to light skin tone and think it will be beautiful when carefully applied! :)

    Reminds me of MAC Ambering Rose blush, but less red

    Oh boy! I’m ordering this with the Hayley Daydreaming eyeshadows.

    This looks so pretty on you! I have a more neutral and darker skintone (NC35/ NW30) and when I tried this today it ended up looking like I took Morange and smeared it on my cheeks. I wanted to love the blushes from this release, but I’m much more partial to the skinfinishes and eyeshadows, actually.

    How does this compare to NARS Powder Blush in Torrid, Christine? :)

  12. Ginger

    That looks very beautiful on you!!! But I don’t think it’s my color, as I’m super duper pale!

  13. I thought for sure I was going to love this, but I actually prefer some of the other blush colors in this range!
