MAC Dilly-Dolly Extra Dimension Blush Review & Swatches
MAC Dilly-Dolly Extra Dimension Blush ($31.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a very light pink with cooler undertones as the base color with contrasting, warmer gold pearl that gave it a luminous sheen.
The texture was smooth to the touch, moderately dense but not stiff to work with, and blended out effortlessly on my skin. The finish was luminous but wasn’t prone to emphasizing skin texture. It had semi-opaque, buildable color coverage that lasted nicely for eight and a half hours before fading visibly.

The Extra Dimension Blush formula is supposed to have “long-wearing colour with prismatic reflections” that wears for “10 hours.” The formula is typically very pigmented with a soft, smooth texture that’s firmer in the pan but not difficult to use–I had no issues grabbing color with even my softest brushes–and has no dustiness or powderiness in the pan. The blushes are usually blendable with a luminous glow on the cheeks that did not emphasize my skin’s natural texture. With MAC’s newly-added permanent shades, the wear time has ranged from eight to ten hours.

Another really pretty blush from MAC – a very soft finish too.
This finish is very tempting…many of the dupes here are on my wish list (and I actually own CP Forget Me Not) but the finishes for a light pink shimmery blush are often too metallic/frosty or sparkly. The finish on this MAC one looks lovely.
Unfortunately, it’s LE…and I have not bought powder blushes lately due to a tendency for flakey skin and other texture on my cheeks. I’ll have to see if I have good luck applying this formula (I have fairly precious on hand) with a sponge instead…maybe that will help.
It’s much lighter than I thought it would be. I compared it to Into the Pink, which I’ve always thought of as quite light and Dilly Dolly is even paler. Such a pretty blush, though, and such a pretty finish. I love all of these ED blushes.
I agree. Dilly Dolly comes across as more of a highlighter.
My very favorite blush is MAC’s Well Dressed. This looks a lot like it in the photos. Do you think it’s a dupe?
No, the finish is quite different, and it has strong gold shimmer, so it has a different tone!
It’s lovely. I really don’t want to love MAC LE’s but for once I do love quite a lot from the release.
Now off to see if these have sold out already, and to negotiate with myself if all both blushes and the lipstick I like are still available, get all three or four or four items or just one of the blushes.
Is it just MAC Nordic or whatever they call my local MAC online retailer that is absolutely bad as a website?
Right now I’m thinking of not buying this blush and Moody Bloom blush from them, I can’t add the plummy blush, but it doesn’t say it’s sold out.
Searching takes forever. I really dislike the site so much. And isn’t it fun when they say chose payment option, and they have one option to chose.
They reworked the site not long ago, but they didn’t manage to make it better.
OK, rant over. Going to take a long-ish soothing shower 🙂
Quick update, as if anyone care. 😀
I bought Dilly-Dolly. Under My Plum and Moody Bloom from another retailer.
The local MAC online retailer in my country is similarly #$%^&.
Strange that these days they didn’t manage to have a better site built.
I bought this one and have been absolutely loving it!
