MAC Shape the Future Extra Dimension Skinfinish

MAC Shape the Future Extra Dimension Skinfinish ($30.00 for 0.31 oz.) is described as a “pastel pink with iridescence” and “soft brick with light shimmer.” When swirled together, the resulting color is a darkened orange with reddish undertones and a pinky shimmer-sheen. The lighter color, on its own, is a warm-toned beige with a shimmery finish. The darker color is a darkened orange with red undertones and a frosted finish. NARS Gina is lighter. MAC Fiery Impact is redder, while MAC Blazing Haute is lighter and more orange–if you mixed the two together, you would get close to this (but not as shimmery). Illamasqua Expose is similar in color but is matte in finish. The lighter shade is a bit darker and warmer than NARS Nico. While the darker shade is more shimmery than MAC Fiery Impact but lighter and less red than NARS Liberte.

Round-up: MAC In Extra Dimension (2013)

The only product that is missing is Shape the Future, which I’ll be buying at Nordstrom as soon as I get a couple of posts up :)  I probably won’t have it until late this week–just a heads up. On that note, if you’ve been looking for the Extra Dimension SkinfinishesNordstrom has part of the collection (Skinfinishes and Blushes but not eyeshadows) and free shipping on all [U.S.] orders, and Macy’s has everything available now and as free shipping on [U.S.] orders over $50.  This collection will be available in-stores and at counters on April 11th.
