MAC Flaming Chic Extra Dimension Blush Review, Photos, Swatches

MAC Flaming Chic Extra Dimension Blush
MAC Flaming Chic Extra Dimension Blush

MAC Flaming Chic Extra Dimension Blush ($25.00 for 0.22 oz.) is described as a “bright blue pink.” It’s a coral-pink with subtle, warm undertones, and a satiny finish. Burberry Coral Pink is much, much darker. MAC Whole Lotta Love is cooler-toned. Chanel Rose Initiale is a smidgen pinker. MAC Immortal Flower is lighter and a touch warmer. Tarte Blissful is warmer, more coral. Tarina Tarantino Parasol is similar but shimmery. theBalm Frat Boy is slightly warmer.

The texture had a light dryness to it that didn’t seem to inhibit blending or payoff, but there’s a noticeable dryness to the power (and if you’re familiar with the Extra Dimension formula, it’s consistent with the rest of the line, and also a bit like Mineralize products). It had good color payoff, but I did notice that there was a waxy film on it that needed to be rubbed away before it worked well. I didn’t notice it on the other shades, but this one did. It has a subtle sheen in its finish, and it’s very flattering on the skin–natural and a bit glowy but not metallic of frosted; and it didn’t emphasize pores or the skin’s natural texture. Flaming Chic wore for seven hours before looking a bit faded after eight hours, though MAC only states these have six-hour wear.

Absolutely GORGEOUS but I haven’t finished a single blush in upwards of 20 years! (I’ve been trying to finish Desert Rose since I hit pan on it ages ago but I haven’t even finished that one yet). I need to stop BUYING blushes and stick to USING one or 2 of them!

I know what you mean about that waxy film! I have that issue with MAC eyeshadows sometimes. I ended up having to exchange a quad once because one shade kept forming a weird film; the sales associate looked at me like I was nuts, and tried to explain that “that’s just how matte eyeshadows feel” but the new one was just fine. It’s so bizarre.

i can’t believe these blushes get such a good rating in texture. for me they were a big disappointment. to me the texture was like brick and they had a very poor color pay-off. i ordered all of them, but ended up returning all 5! as much as i wanted to love them, i would never reach for these. why would i bother using (rubbing my brush over the product) flaming chic when i have whole lotta love ( where one soft sweap is enough for both cheeks), it just doesn’t compete.

I love the finish, but color wise it’s probably be the most dupable blush in this collection. Nice to have, but not something I feel like I need.

I bought this and it is impossible to get on my brush. If I sweep it over I get NOTHING. If I stab at it with the bristles I end up getting large particles. I don’t think this one is worth the $25.00. I am probably going to return mine.

Do you have a recommendation on how to remove the waxy top layer? Should I just rub it off with a paper towel or go at it with a coarser brush? Love this color on you btw, I just can’t let it go! xD

This is so pretty on you Christine. Please tell me which brush you used to apply it with as I am so tempted to get my paws on this one! Thanks for ever helpful advice.
