MAC Magnetic Nude Extra Dimension Skinfinishes

There are three shades of MAC Extra Dimension Skinfinish ($30.00 for 0.31 oz.) in the upcoming Magnetic Nude collection, which launches in-stores and at-counter on December 26th. Superb is a repromote, while the other two shades are new (and of course, limited edition). Those are the two that I’m testing for wear today, so I will update with ratings and wear times once I’ve finished wearing them.

Fairly Precious is described as a “peach with dimensional pearly green.” It’s a light-medium, peach (that leans a little orange) with a warm undertone and a frosted sheen. It had excellent color payoff, and the texture was soft and easy to blend out on the skin. On medium and deeper complexions, it will primarily add sheen with, at best, a little warmth. On fairer complexions, it will do both. It looks soft, glowy, and luminous on the skin and just slightly emphasizes pores and the skin’s texture.  It lasted for seven and a half hours before showing signs of fading. MAC Perfectly Poised (Outer) (LE, $30.00) is darker, more orange. Becca Rose Gold (LE, $38.00) is darker, less orange. NARS Realm of the Senses #3 (LE, $29.00) is similar but less frosted. MAC Solar Ray (LE, $25.00) is more orange, darker. Chanel Espiegle (P, $43.00) is darker, pinker, less frosted. Le Metier de Beaute Whisper (P, $30.00) is pinker. See comparison swatches.

Magnetic Appeal is described as a “medium tan with fine gold sheen.” It’s a coppery-brown with a copper-gold shimmer and warm undertones. This was less frosted compared to the other two, but when blended, it does take on a more metallic finish (but not quite as metallic as Fairly Precious or Superb). I’m surprised to see this one, because it was really quite similar to MAC’s Glorify–the range isn’t so extensive that you’d expect to see such close releases. It had excellent pigmentation, and the color applied well on the skin and blended very easily. I saw slight emphasis of pores/skin texture, but it was minor (and compared to its metallic finish, again, impressive). It wore well for a full eight hours before starting to fade at the edges.  bareMinerals The Many Splendors #3 (LE) is more golden. MAC Perfectly Poised (Outer) (LE, $30.00) is lighter, less brown. MAC Gold Deposit (P, $30.00) is more orange, less brown. MAC Glorify (LE, $30.00) is slightly browner, more metallic. See comparison swatches.

Superb is described as a “soft peachy nude with multidimensional shimmer.” It’s a soft, muted beige-brown with champagne frost and shimmer. This shade has been repromoted twice in the past, and I’ve reviewed it twice before, so I won’t be re-testing this, but the photos and swatches are from the latest release (but is the same as the past releases). To recap, it’s a rather frosted, shimmering finish. Depending on the skin tone, it can add both color as well as a highlighting sheen. It has a fairly metallic finish, and yes, it does emphasize pores, but it is very slight, and for something as metallic as this, it’s impressive how little it does that. It wears eight hours with minor fading on me. Bobbi Brown Nude Glow (LE, $42.00) is lighter. MAC Redhead (LE, $30.00) is less beige. MAC Soft & Gentle (P, $30.00) is lighter. See comparison swatches.
