R Picks

MAC R Picks Extra Dimension Skinfinish x 4 Palette ($60.00 for 0.56 oz.) is a new, limited edition highlighter palette that included four shades with three being more luminous and one being more satin-like. All four shades had semi-opaque to opaque color payoff, were blendable, and sat well on my skin without emphasizing my skin’s natural texture.

They have a gel-powder hybrid formula, which means the powders can feel almost “stiff” to those who haven’t tried this type of formula, but they work well with moderately-dense, slightly more rounded brushes and deliver particularly seamless powder on skin such that they look almost cream-like as a result.

Maca

Maca is a light, yellowy gold with moderate, warm undertones and a luminous sheen. It had opaque pigmentation paired with a smooth, slightly firmer texture that wasn’t stiff to work with, but it had no powderiness either.

The gel-powder hybrid formula picked up well with a dry brush and delivered glowing highlighter that didn’t emphasize my skin’s natural texture. It lasted well for eight and a half hours before fading a bit.

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.

Rosa Peach

Rose Peach is a light peach with moderate, warm undertones and a luminous sheen. The texture was slightly firmer to the touch without being powdery nor was it stiff, as I had no trouble picking it up with a moderately-dense brush.

It had opaque color coverage that adhered evenly to my skin and diffused with little effort. It wore well for eight and a half hours before fading noticeably.

Guindilla

Guindilla is a medium-dark coral with moderate, warm undertones and a satin finish. It was significantly less luminous than most of the brand’s Extra Dimension products. It had mostly opaque, buildable color coverage paired with a moderately-dense, slightly firm texture that still picked up well with a dry brush but was best used with a moderately-dense brush.

he powder applied evenly to bare skin and blended out beautifully. It stayed on well for eight and a half hours before fading visibly on me.

Miel de Azhar

Miel de Azhar is a medium-dark copper base with lighter, warmer golden bronze shimmer and a luminous finish. It had rich color payoff in a single layer, though it could be used with a lighter hand for more buildable coverage if desired.

The gel-powder formula worked best with a moderately-dense brush, as it has a firmer feel but is quite yielding and “melts” on skin for a more seamless application. It lasted nicely for eight and a half hours before fading noticeably.

Actually, I like all the shades with the exception of the jaundiced gold. Yup, I realize a great fit for some peeps, but not for this skintone. Ugh..so tempted.

This is very pretty, but so incredibly dupeable in my stash. My favorite part has to be the blush. But I do have Nabla Truth, so nope.

I like very much the effect on Christhine’s skin, but the price Is a bit too high for mac’s powder. Many other brands offers similar palettes with good quality and for lesser price.

This is lovely. I am always happy when MAC produces something good. With the exception of Maca (which I could use as an eyeshadow), the other 3 shades would all work for me very well. Yay, MAC!

I love these type of color quads and if I thought I could wear the lightest two as highlighters I’d totally pick it up. I’m not against using highlighter as blush, but I’ve got a handful of those already.
