La Leyenda

MAC La Leyenda Extra Dimension Skinfinish ($37.00 for 0.31 oz.) is a medium-dark gold with strong, warm peachy undertones and a metallic sheen. It had opaque color coverage in a single layer with a smooth, dense, and slightly firmer consistency, so it was easy to pick up more or less product as desired.

The powder applied evenly to bare skin and blended out easily without emphasizing my skin’s natural texture. I’d recommend using a moderately-dense brush (something with a bit more surface area) to pick up product as that type of brush works best with the gel-powder formula. It stayed on nicely for eight and a half hours before fading visibly.

Formula Overview

$37.00/0.31 oz. - $119.35 Per Ounce

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.

Christine, this looks absolutely stunningly beautiful on you. When I saw the product, I thought I wouldn’t be interested in it but seeing how it makes your skin positively radiate, I’m tempted. The floral imprint on it reminds me of my beloved Cruel Gardenia from Guerlain!

Yes! It scored an A, looks AMAZING on, and it is different enough of a gold from anything else I already own, so I’m going to do one last early a.m. chase down tomorrow morning!

Whoa! Your cheek looks like a lightbulb glowing! And I do mean that in a nice way. So surprise as it seems licit would be grainy (from the palette) and yet it looks smooth as butter.

It’s the same shade as the Starring You highlighter in the individual compact!! I swatched them both yesterday when I received Selena.
