MAC Hard to Get is a slightly warm-toned, very dark brown with a metallic finish. It is a permanent blush that retails for $31.00 and contains 0.14 oz.
MAC Hard to Get Extra Dimension Blush ($28.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a deep brown with warm, reddish undertones and a pink sheen. I was nervous about this shade, as darker brown blushes are often difficult to apply and blend out, but this blended out quite nicely. It wasn't quite as effortless as other shades in the range (but those have been particularly blendable!), but it was still a very easy blush to work with. It had rich, opaque pigmentation that had a luminous finish that did not accentuate my skin's texture. The color wore well for ten hours 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.
