MAC Dima's Glow Extra Dimension Skinfinish Review & Swatches
MAC Dima’s Glow Extra Dimension Skinfinish ($33.00 for 0.31 oz.) is a soft, peachy-brown with warm undertones and a high-shine, metallic finish. It had opaque pigmentation with a smooth, more firmly-pressed texture that wasn’t powdery but wasn’t stiff, so it was easy to pick up product with a highlighting brush. The powder applied evenly and smoothly on my skin, and it blended out nicely along the edges. It wore well for nine hours on me before fading noticeably (of the 10 claimed).

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.

The design is so nice I wouldn’t want to use this because it’d wreck it.
Pretty but really not a colour for me.
This is an absolutely beautiful highlighter! I just wish it wasn’t so obviously too dark for my skin tone.
Dima’s Glow is so beautiful that I’m actually feeling a little sad over my having CP Butterfly Beach and ABH Glo Getter!
A gorgeous highlighter for the right skintone.
Pretty! Looks like a stunning highlight for medium to dark skintones, and a sweet highlighting bronzer (if you’re into that sort of thing) for lighter skintones.
I bought it .. amazing. It looked better on my skin tone compared to more hyped highlighters (Whisper of Gilt / Oh Darling).

Gorgeous surface pressing and shade. Looks like inspiration may have been Islamic calligraphy tradition. Who is Dima, for the uninitiated?
