MAC Cheeky Bits is a moderately warm-toned, medium-dark coral with a metallic finish. It is a permanent blush that retails for $27.00 and contains 0.22 oz.
MAC Cheeky Bits Extra Dimension Blush ($28.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a bright, medium pink-coral with golden shimmer. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation that applied evenly to the cheeks. The powder was smooth, soft, and blendable but never powdery or dusty in the pan (and this type of formula often has a slightly "drier" feel). I was impressed by just how effortless diffusing this richer shade was! The color stayed on well for nine hours before fading slightly on me.
The Extra Dimension Blush formula is supposed to have "long-wearing colour with prismatic reflections" that wears for "10 hours." The formula is typically very pigmented with a soft, smooth texture that's firmer in the pan but not difficult to use--I had no issues grabbing color with even my softest brushes--and has no dustiness or powderiness in the pan. The blushes are usually blendable with a luminous glow on the cheeks that did not emphasize my skin's natural texture. With MAC's newly-added permanent shades, the wear time has ranged from eight to ten hours.
