MAC Petallic Metallic Extra Dimension Skinfinish ($37.00 for 0.31 oz.) has a light-medium, peachy-orange base with iridescent pink-to-lavender shimmer and faint sparkle that gave it a luminous sheen when applied and buffed on my skin. The texture was moderately-dense but not overly firm, so it picked up well with a moderately-dense brush and deposited product evenly. It blended out nicely along the edges and didn’t emphasize my skin’s natural texture. It had mostly opaque, buildable coverage that stayed on well for eight and a half hours on me.

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.
