Beaming Blush

MAC Beaming Blush Extra Dimension Skinfinish ($33.00 for 0.31 oz.) is a light, subtly warm-toned pink base with a gold and pink shimmer.

The Extra Dimension Skinfinish formula now features four, permanent shades, and the formula is supposed to be a highlighter that “lasts up to ten hours” with “prismatic reflections.” Beaming Blush had semi-opaque, buildable coverage with a soft, lightly dusty consistency that had a few larger sparkles paired with finer shimmer, so I felt like it looked more sparkly on the skin compared to some of the other shades in the formula have. It was very blendable and easy to apply, and I did not notice it emphasizing my skin’s natural texture. The color wore well for eight hours on me.

Formula Overview

$37.00/0.31 oz. - $119.35 Per Ounce

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.

I do like it, but this is something where I would be tempted to pack on the color… so the presence of “large sparkles” is kind of a deterrent. At least its permanent.

OMG, must be mine! I wasn’t able to find Becca Rose Quartz in store to swatch before it sold out, but I think I actually like the gold shimmer/sheen in this one more. And my gosh, LOVE your look. I’ve already ordered the Huda palette, now you make me want that Mauvember lipstick to go with it.

Good job, Christine! I absolutely love the new product layout! It’s great not to have to go all the way down to click on ‘continue reading’ & then back page to read the dupe comparison after viewing the product pics, especially, since I use a larger font, I always had to scroll down to find the ‘continue reading’ at the end. Thank you!

How close would you say this is to Becca’s (discontinued) Gypsy blush?
There’s nothing quite like Gypsy out there, but this seems like it could be a close match to it! 😀

This is beautiful, but I bought already the sweet copper and the sweet peach face compacts. And I have a lot of highlighter from another. So I dont know, maybe later I will buy this

Great review! I cant wait to swatch them myself.
I love this iridescent colours, but I am afraid they don’t really fit my really pale skintone. Do you think I could wear Beaming Blush? I don’t like that blueish soft frost too much and double gleam doesn’t seem to have as much iridescence.
