Cold Comfort

MAC Cold Comfort Extra Dimension Skinfinish ($38.50 for 0.28 oz.) is a pale lavender with cool undertones and finely-milled shimmer that shifted subtly from bluish-white to cool lavender. It seemed to have more of a translucent base instead of a white base, which should make it more workable across skin tones.

It had a light-to-moderate glow applied dry and could be intensified to a shinier, more metallic finish if applied with a wet brush. The texture was firmer in the pan without being stiff, though I felt like the raised design made it a bit harder to get an even pick up of product. The highlighter applied evenly to bare skin and blended out easily. It wore well for eight and a half hours on me 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.

I am truly appreciating the translucent base on this so that so many depths of skin color can use this one! Having Nyx Lavender Steel and PMG Iridescent Pink, I’m covered for dupes I believe. ? Saved!

Yes! I think I will be getting this one. I’m loving anything lavender and periwinkle lately. Looks very pretty. I had wanted lavender steel in the past but talked myself out.
