MAC Definitely Defined Extra Dimension Skinfinish ($30.00 for 0.31 oz.) is described as a “silvery pink/soft rose with shimmer.” Swirled together, it is a soft peach with a hint of pink and a frosted, golden champagne sheen. MAC Light Year is warmer, darker. MAC By Candlelight is lighter. bareMinerals The Love Affair is warmer, more peach. MAC Superb is browner. Bobbi Brown Rose Gold is more beige. Laura Mercier Rose Rendezvous is browner. The lighter shade is a pale champagne with a frosted, metallic finish. Chanel Beiges Ombres Tissees is more beige, less golden. The darker shade is a peachy-orange with a frosted finish. MAC Utterly Game is somewhat similar in color but is mostly matte.

The lighter shade has a very, very metallic finish, so as a highlighter is incredibly reflective and emphasizes pores and any imperfections in the skin noticeably. The darker shade has a rather frosted finish (rather than a metallic one), but it does somewhat emphasize pores. On lighter complexions, this will show up as more of a highlighter/blush combination, while on medium to dark complexions, it will be subtler and better as a highlighter (generally). It has a soft, slightly dry, consistency and feel, but it applies with good color payoff and builds up well. It does blend out easily, and it doesn’t look powdery on the skin. When I tested Definitely Defined, it lasted for seven and a half hours well, but after eight and a half, there was some patchiness (MAC says this formula will last ten hours).

Thank you Christine. I still think I’ll be getting the dark one, I believe is double definition. I am an nc20, but after I saw how it looks on you, I can’t wait to get it.

I absolutely love it. I don’t live near a MAC store & the website has said “coming soon” for a freakin week now so I doubt ill be able to even try this. I don’t have large pores on my cheeks so I don’t think that will be an issue for me, lets hope not anyway. My biggest concern on that area is excessive dryness 🙁

I know you’ve received a million comments like this but you really have been such a fabulous compass for my beauty needs. Thank you so much for the immense amounts of work that I know I can’t begin to fathom. Additionally my subscriptions don’t seem to be working- I am all set to receive others comments but haven’t gotten any in days. Thirdly- will you be reviewing any of the MAC Pro Nudes and Metallics (I know thats a long shot)?

Just waiting to buy it – I don’t think it’s out yet?

Also will have my guys look into the tech issue you mentioned!

Trying to decide between this one and “Shape the Future” — they both look really pretty. I love the idea of this, with the lighter and darker tones of the same shade.

Look warm to me which makes me feel better about not getting it!

Thanks for the comparisons as always. MAC Light Year turn orange on me to my horror because of the colour on my skin tone. lol

Hi Christine! Thank you for the amazing review, as always. Quick question~ how does Definitely Defined compare to Petticoat MSF? Thanks!
